Bike pavilion – prototype located in Mainz

With its well-structured network of bike stations, the city of Mainz provides numerous rental bikes. However, up until now, there has been a lack of infrastructure for privately owned bikes, such as suitable parking places. All too often, you encounter neglected bikes that have fallen victim to the weather and vandalism. As a result of their low architectonic quality and the manner of their construction, the bicycle sheds found on the market are easily susceptible to vandalism, and therefore unsuitable for public spaces.It was against this background that SYRA_SCHOYERER ARCHITEKTEN developed an initial prototype of a bike pavilion for the city of Mainz. True to the practice’s philosophy of repurposing everyday items, only industr... More

STADSHAGEN - housing IN SOLID WOOD FOR FOLKHEM

WAN Future Projects Residential Award, 1st prize.Stadshagen, StockholmIn Stadshagen, close to one of the highest points in Stockholm, the existing built environment is to be supplemented and a new district developed. The new district ends in a steep slope down towards Karlbergskanalen. At the edge of this slope we have designed two buildings for Folkhem, which in many respects exists on the boundary between city and nature.The buildings are clearly divided into two parts, with a base of light concrete and an upper massive wooden volume. Along the new street, the buildings stand in an urban context. In the buildings' ground floors the concrete plinth is modeled and creates generous storefronts that open onto small square formations, which be... More

Prosperidad 35

In collaboration with CUA (Colectivo Urbano Ambiental). The idea of an architectural project with a multifaceted identity, accountable to the residents, the urban area and the environment, was born from the moment of change and growth currently taking place in the Escandón neighborhood. The project consists of the development of 10 apartments in a 502 m2 plot, with a 50% footprint area and five levels. There are two buildings connected by bridges and a nucleus of vertical circulation. Spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and windows have the same proportions in every apartment. Every apartment is different and their areas are variable, from 60m2 to 135m2. Therefore, rather than for a single type of user, the apartment... More

Laredo 18

In collaboration with Concepto Vertical. Laredo 18 is a project based on the restoration of a 1960’s building in the Colonia Condesa that is made up of 3 floors, 6 apartments, ground floor parking and a commercial space. Being a poorly maintained building, the project focused on establishing more efficient use of space to maximize economic profitability and environmental form. We modernized the original integrity of the building by combining original elements with handicrafts, metal, and natural materials (stone and wood). We were also able to add 3 apartments, making a total of 9 in the building, with 2 penthouses on the fourth floor and a study on the ground level. The building seeks integration and permanence to the neighborhood a... More

Urban of Regeneration of Presidente Masaryk Avenue

Presidente Masaryk Avenue is located in the central area of Mexico City, in Polanco, a neighborhood that was designed in the third decade of the XXth century as a middle income residential area, and has become the more exclusive commercial avenue in Mexico and probably the most important in Latin America. In the last years it has had to compete commercially with the mall’s system: horizontal vs vertical development, open vs close space, parking in the street vs parking building, open to anyone 24 hours vs restricted access, besides of the usual city problems (security, traffic, informal commerce, etcetera). The project for Masaryk focused on: recuperation of public space, widening the sidewalk and removing cars from it. Allowing car dro... More

Anticonditionalism - vertical city

Principle settling of human race in palmy days of Antiсonditionalism: it needs to be placed in key-cities, so called anti-conditional cities. The particular Terra state for just that period, the period of forced mortality moving, put the habitancy in formation of untenableness and sheer impossibility insisted prompt action. The reasons of that fidgety are following: — all biological and energetic resources run out — bio-depletion of cultivated soil — flush pollution All of that leads to greenhouse effect and sensible rise in the temperature (up to 5-10 °C), moreover it's driving to dissolution of arctic "caps" and subsequent iciness, finally we can find the situation of Ice Age made by aggrandizement of water project area of t...

Public Parklet

Tengbom transformed a parking space on Katarinavägen in Stockholm into a neighbourhood node, public meeting place and surface water management during June 2015. The project is an example of green retrofits - strategies for refurbishing grey infrastructure into green infrastructure, and examining what this transformation means for public space. The conversion of parking spaces to community nodes with ecosystem services may be closer than we think. A parklet is a temporary or permanent sidewalk extension that provides more space and amenities for people using the street. Parklets are usually installed on parking lanes and use one or more parking spaces. Launched in San Francisco, California, in 2010, the phenomenon has now spread all over... More

Urban Spa

The Urban Spa was created exploring the thematic and symbols found on the streets. This is a business model for the young entrepreneur, between 25 to 40 years, which corresponds to 35% of the growth of companies in Brazil. The idea is to have a space that provides a new look and contemporary tools of wellness & wellbeing to help these new entrepreneurs to better cope with their stressful work demand. In this project, the Luxury found in most spas gives room to a more stripped and irreverent kind of spa. "We tried to give a new look to the concept of relaxation, getting into a more contemporary and dynamic view of well-being. The space proposes a way to relax in a real scenario, suggesting that welfare can be anywhere and anytime." say... More
