De Zalmhaven

The Zalmhaven is the new eye-catcher on the Rotterdam skyline. With 215 meters, this will be the highest residential tower in the Benelux. Two flanking towers (by KAAN Architecten) form a visual staircase to the lower Scheepvaartkwartier.  For this ambitious project, much attention has been paid to the relationship with the environment and the liveliness at ground level. On the urban scale, the high tower acts as a connecting element between the Scheepvaartkwartier and the Kop van Zuid, between the north and south side of the city. In this way, the focus of the city is shifted towards the water.  The style of the architecture and the character of the building are in line with the existing buildings of the area. The design is ins... More

The Base Height

Phuket’s well-known Sino Portuguese style shophouses have been a prominent feature of downtown Phuket for generations.

Tall Wood Housing

Wood is a concept that mimics the natural growth behaviour of plants. The story of the structure begins where a tree is planted. When a tree becomes material for various structural purposes, the materials become a building and then the building decays with time and diminishes back into nature, creating an organism like lifecycle which exists without resisting and working along with major forces within earth’s natural ecosystem (more resilient architecture).Boom, acts as seed that spontaneously impregnates in nature. It sprouts to create symbiotic relationships between architectural culture and industry. When the system grows enough to create a cultural breakthrough, it starts to sprawl though the urba... More
