Planned to be built near the High Line at 520 West 28th Street in Chelsea just south of Hudson Yards, the development will feature around 37 residences of up to 5,500ft². The development will also feature a double-height entrance lobby, community spaces, an outdoor garden, terraces and courtyard, a substantial roof terrace, indoor pool and spa, entertainment space and playrooms. Zaha Hadid Architects founder Zaha Hadid said the company's design is an integration of volumes that flow into each other and follow a coherent formal language, as well as create the sensibility of the building's overall ensemble.

"With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighborhood," Hadid said.

Complete Facade Greening: High-Rise Apartment Building in Milan - This New Apartment Building Trades Its Parking Spaces For Gardens. Many people think of Boston as one of the better American cities to be a car-less citizen, but the city’s building codes don’t necessarily cater toward the car-free community. For decades, the city has required architects and developers to include room for parking spots (as many as two per unit) in all new residential constructions, whether or not those residents actually need them. The result is that neighborhood space skews toward parking lots and away from greener uses. Architect Sebastian Mariscal, calls such parking requirements "excessive and not representative of today’s social and environmental demands.

We want to build for people not cars. " His firm, Sebastian Mariscal Studio, might get a shot, if its proposal for a new, 18,000 square foot, mixed-use, 44 residential unit building in the Allston neighborhood gets approved: Its design doesn’t include a single parking spot. "We cannot place all the responsibility for changing our city on the authorities," said Mariscal. - Esker house. Esker Haus (esker=stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s.The project has been developed as a parasite which started from adopting the structure of the host and gradually differentiated into its own unique organization and morphology.The project is formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the smooth hillsides of the surrounding dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside- the spaces are enfolded by an angular and dynamic series of planes creating new and ever-changing perspectives and spatial constellations.The unique stratified morphology and construction system started off from projecting each step of the external staircase as a modulor that then was proliferated as frames.

Plasma Studio. Tower Hatert is a Combined Social Housing and Health Care Center in The Netherlands. Completed in October, the new residential tower maintains 72 apartments on top of a community health center. Each floor features a free-form balcony that wraps around the structure, and the overall effect is a sculptural aesthetic. None of the balconies line up, giving each floor access to natural daylighting and wide-spanning views, without obstruction by shade from the balconies above. The balconies are wrapped in a perforated aluminum screen with a design resembling the veins of leaves. The glass facade on the ground floor is also inspired by tree details, like the leaf grain and growth ring pattern. Parking for the apartments is organized underneath a raised deck that functions as a public plaza for the residents of the tower and of the town of Hatert.

The deck is covered in sedum and works as green space, and helps infiltrate stormwater. Design began on the 8,000 sq meter tower in 2007, with construction beginning in 2009 and completion in 2011. . + 24H Architecture.

Landscape Architect Blog.: Green Edge House by mA-style Architects.

Hello. The amazing space full of trees and bushes that are in the interior of a modern house - such a project presented by mA-style Architects. I always knew that the modern home needs a modern interior, as well as is a lot possibilities of arranging the space in a functional and fashionable way. This project is a great surprise for me - of course positive! :) mA-style Architects designed the house for a residential site in Fujieda, Sizuoka Prefecture.

The architects felt that residents would be better off without a view of their surroundings, so they designed an insular house with a private garden. Named Green Edge House, the residence is surrounded on all sides by the narrow garden and glazed walls to allow residents to open every room out to the greenery. "The transparency of the glass weakens consciousness of a partition between inside and outside. It is like opening, and a green edge and the floating wall produce space with the transparency while being surrounded. Justine. Southern Architects.
