Good Food, Good Life

“Good Food, Good Life”, the first Southeast Asia Winner of the international C40 Reinventing Cities, by global climate leadership group, C40 Cities, is our masterplan to repurpose Singapore’s heritage fire station. It is envisioned to be a community node that reconnects Human to Human relationships, as well as with Nature through Virtuous Food cycle. Guiding this is the reignition of the fundamental essence that has united Singapore’s multi-ethnicity during her founding years: Kampung Spirit (“Village” in Malay), which has defined a distinctive way of life that taps into the altruistic side of humanity - Good things are shared, and burdens are carried. This then laid the foundation of Singapore’s ur... More

Chicago

A narrow spit of land between the eastern bank of the IJ, the railway embankment and the Piet Heinkade was part of the redevelopment of the eastern harbour area by the Amsterdam Department of Urban Planning (DRO) in the 1990s. The urban development concept included a series of interconnected building zones. In this so-called ‘train of buildings’, a part of the old warehouses was to be preserved and integrated into the planning. Caption   Rapp+Rapp created the urban design for one of these building zones, in which an extremely high building density had to be realised. Following New York’s zoning law, urban guidelines were formulated for the daylighting, the massing, and the intended robust character by which the... More

Ecopolis on Sakhalin

The main value of the contest project is the fragile ecosystem of Sakhalin Island, where the precarious balance of geological, hydrological, and meteorological processes causes both admiration and awe. Unique in its beauty and richness, its natural features and topography, and its advantageous geopolitical location make Sakhalin, and the Ecopolis in particular, a major point on the map of Russia and the world. The Masterplan takes into account the importance of preserving the scale of the place and its unique features, while weaving the territory into the global agenda and incorporating it into global processes.

Waterfront quarters in Tyumen

Brusnika’s quarters in the River Port form a new housing estate in the centre of Tyumen, Russia. The area is located at the site of the former river port, which marked the beginning of Siberian steam navigation in the late 19th century. Barges were used to transport grain and salt, metal and peltry, fish and timber. At the time Tyumen was genuinely the door to Siberia. In the second half of the 20th century, the development of rail and automobile infrastructure led to a declining demand for river transportation. Eventually the port faded in importance but it still remains a memorable place for the city.    While designing the River Port project, Brusnika opted to conserve the authentic spot and restore access to the river....

Public park and courtyards

Sukhodolsky is a small quarter in Yekaterinburg, constructed on a vacant plot of a new district bordering the western frontier of the city. In view of its remoteness from the city centre, the project team was conceiving it as an independent, self-sufficient entity. All required necessities are within the quarter: public spaces, garden courtyards, shops and household amenities. The architects were aiming at comfortable heights and appropriate living environment.   Caption Caption The quarter comprises four houses linking the inner yards perimeter-wise. Each house has sections of varying heights with five, seven, nine and fifteen storeys. The lower towers are south-facing, while the higher sections overlook the north, ensuring... More

Godrej Riverhills

RIVERHILL PUNE departs from typical privatized insular typology and instead proposes a bold new highly public open space system for the city – The RiverWalk. The design emerged from a fundamental vision to not generate a framework that was complicit in private retailing and waterfront experiences; as they structure an urban language of separation. Instead this nearly half-KM long public promenade has been carved out from primarily land that was allocated to private parcels. The RiverWalk acts as an urban landscape-device meaningfully connects the site with the Riverfront and the foothills onto the South. The pedestrian-first landscape elements of the Riverwalk and Riverfront act as the binding glue for the new development. A ribbon l... More
