Live Oak Bank Campus

Live Oak Bank’s Wilmington, NC campus celebrates its serene, forested site while fulfilling the company’s goal of creating the best possible workplace environment for its employees. The buildings draw from a shared materials palette of cypress, glass, and steel to integrate with the natural surroundings while creating a modern aesthetic.  The first campus building is anchored by a central lounge overlooking the central courtyard and deck; slender two-story office wings create a sense of transparency and offer fabulous views from any point within the building.  A second building with a canted form takes advantage of optimal daylighting and passive solar design and features an employee restaurant and lake views. An adjac... More

TED Ankara College Campus Performing Arts Centre

The project, which won the architectural project competition for the Ted Ankara College Campus with a capacity of 6000 students in 1998, was implemented in 2005 and educational activities have begun. Conceptualized and designed by Semra Uygur and Özcan Uygur, this campus is a city simulation accomplished adopting the principle that education should create its own urban life even if it is in an area remote from the city. As a result of this design principle, TED Ankara College Campus operates as an actual city with the daily circulation routes designed considering the diversity of common indoor-outdoor areas, functional arrangement, meeting of various users, and the requirements emerged within the process.The campus in question needed a...

Cerys' Palace in Crystal Palace

This project sits in the Church Road Conservation Area in Crystal Palace, South London and consists of a complete refurbishment of a beautiful, historic five-bedroom house and a rear extension.  Unlike with many other projects, the brief here was not to create more area but to enable the clients to fall in love with their home of 27 years again and to make better use of the existing space. This has been achieved by cutting down on circulation area, refurbishing existing bathrooms and moving some into new locations and by providing a more functional and generous kitchen with a new dining area that looks out onto the garden. Further to that we have also created a proper home office, in order to finally provide a nice, tranquil environme... More

Reform of single-family house, in Ares

The Project is located in Ares, a coast town that belongs to A Coruña. It is about reforming an isolated single-family house, with a very characteristic slate roof.  The plot is elongated, with a steep slope that descends into the sea.  Different platforms are generated in which the house and the pool are located.  In the lower area is an auxiliary building. The entrance to the house is produced by the north area of the plot.  It seeks to unify the house employing two materials that dialogue with existing ones, the wood and, the black aluminium, both indoors and outdoors. The ground floor is reformed, forming a large wooden plinth.  On this floor the old gallery opens with large windows to enhance the spe... More

San Caetano Office, Xunta de Galicia

First prize to Díaz y Díaz arquitectos and Miba Architects in the ideas contest with jury intervention, for the reorganization of the Administrative Complex of the Xunta de Galicia in San Caetano, Santiago de Compostela. This proposal seeks to provide an effective solution to the integral reorganization of the Complex of San Caetano. The biggest problem is providing shelter to all the workers during the execution of the work, hence the creation of a new built volume. This New Building will act as a sponge capable of absorbing staff transfers during the works, and once executed, will be part of the new offices, providing relationship zones and allowing the opening and reorganization of current work spaces, as well as improving...

Beach House

The Face(ade): Patinated copper and bronzed iron are richly defined against the subtle uniformity of cream colored plasterwork. A clear grained Cedar scrim finished in a natural hue of pale rose add a neutral element to the overall composition. The openings are large and intentional, with the reflective sheen of the plate glass defining the form and spatial dynamics of the project.​The Soul: A generous use of plate glass through-out the project affords a feeling of lightness especially between the roof deck and living room, where a glazed volume breaches the ceiling plane and materializes as a decked stair and landing assembly. A rich millwork selection from Maple to Hickory softens the living layer and balances out the exposed st... More

Business Center Vrelec

Vrelec Business Center is placed at the entry point towards the center of Rogaška Slatina town and hosts a program for the “business incubator” for smaller entrepreneurs. Its orientation towards the promenade of Rogaška`s health-park is accented by the sightseeing point at the top floor loggia and by the longitudinal body. Thus the building establishes a connection to the urbanistic axis of the town, and also a height emphasis at the town`s main roundabout intersection. The shape of the building is a reaction to the irregular shape of the plot and nearness of other structures. Longitudinal overhang over the glazed ground offers some shelter for the semi-public space. The outer arrangement comprises also climbing pl... More

daylighthouse 2

The site of Daylighthouse 2 is next to the huge lake IJsselmeer. In between the lake and the house is a beautiful swamp for birds. Almere planned row houses on this location and the town house is the end of a row facing south west. Mirck Architecture translated the wishes of the client into a wooden cube of 9 by 9 by 9 meter. The facade, inner space and climate are influenced by sunlight and daylight. The particular structure of the cube is shown everywhere and continued in the plot wall and the shed.The ground floor living space is fully glazed to the south and west side. The sun protection is created by the cantilevered bedroom volume above. To the north, a split level opens the inner space, creating voids. In the voids special shiny roun... More

Patio House

The local Government has given out nine plots on one of the last vacant lots in Vinex-location Reeshof. The plots measure approximately 14 x 14 metres and benefit from a communal garden maintained by the municipality. A solution for the outdoor space had to be found within the plot boundaries. On the other hand, the houses are detached with quite a bit of space between them.As a result of the open setting, a lot of attention has been paid to privacy. Most of the windows in the external walls are narrow, allowing light to enter but making it difficult for those outside to look in. Moreover, the windows in the bathrooms and bedrooms are located in high positions. In addition, the living room has a low horizontal window with a view of the comm... More

House V.G.

This project focused on the renovation and extension of a single family house. The main building got an important upgrade, got insulated and was refurnished. Afterwards the typical Flemish adjacent constructions were demolished to be replaced by a unique and pure volume. The extension offers comfort, functionality and spaciousness.The use of space, the light, the materials, the volumes and the experience of the extension are very different of the existing house. The new plan is both sober, open, flexible and functional, containing a desk, a kitchen, a dining table and a utility room. It’s a new living space. A subtle, opaque curtain can divide the rooms. Other than the tiny windows of the house, the extension got a large window. The wi... More

CAH University of Applied Science

The new CAH Vilentum agriculture graduate school represents the actual integration of countryside and urban life and the important role of the green industry in today’s society. This school is integrated in a glass greenhouse (height: 16 meters) equipped with a highly innovative climate control system. This system causes the whole design to achieve a high performance level of sustainability, both in terms of energy consumption, materials and residues as in the field of social climate. The 2,275 m2 warm wood façade panels by Hunter Douglas contrast with the cool glass. By combining three different wood species (American ash wood, South-American cambara and Asian merbau) with varying thickness and mixed light and dark Shades create a special... More
