Looking at all sides of the Pier 55 offshore park development

For fans of the park, the gift from the Diller-von Furstenberg foundation represented more than the revival of Pier 54. It was a statement that Hudson River Park deserved to be in the same league as the city’s other signature, showy spaces.

More details — or opinions, perhaps — are surfacing for the proposed Pier 55 “culture island”, which media mogul Barry Diller commissioned Thomas Heatherwick to design for New York’s Hudson River Park.

LHM Kindergarten / Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

Architects: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Year: 2015
Photographs: Atsushi Ishida

From the architect. We designed a playful and exciting environment suitable for implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy, which focuses on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently. In doing so, we created a space in which seasonal changes can be experienced to the fullest by taking advantage of the glass windows facing a garden outside of the building to usher the great outdoors into the kindergarten.

We experimented with a landscape design populated with lakes, hills and mountains that would inspire children a variety of uses and fun ways to play by stimulating their imagination.

Here, the scenery and relief associated with nature is echoed throughout the space by a cleverly designed stage resembling a hill, furniture representing small mountains, caves or cabins and mirrors reminiscent of the surface of a body of water, while the color gradations of the walls feature a palette evoking the beauty of nature.

The lake-shaped mirrors covering the ceiling in the “Lake” area help create a space in which minute changes in natural light, such as that from the morning or evening sun or that of a sunny or cloudy sky, can be experienced throughout the day and the seasons, while also adding to the bustle by reflecting the children at play. As the reflected imagery adds to the liveliness of the entire scenery, it helps create an environment that brings children to approach natural phenomena and their daily activities with an increased sense of wonder and playfulness.

Over at the “Hill and Mountain” area, the green hill allows for a variety of uses for activities intended to boost the creativity of children, such as seating for a concert, a stage for a play or a stand for a exhibition.

Moreover, children can climb over the red, blue and orange pieces of furniture like a small mountain ridge, sit on them like chairs, crawl through them like a cave or enjoy them as their own private space by holing up inside them like a cabin to enjoy a book or even play hide-and-seek.

The orange and yellow tones of the setting sun, the green forest hues and the waterfall motifs on the mountain-shaped play structures all come together in a signature gradation that spreads throughout the whole space like a wave of color filled with lively movement. This enables the children to cheerfully evolve in an environment bathed in the rhythm of colors where they can find their space and decide how to spend their time each in their own way.

Furthermore, by placing elements inspired by natural settings throughout the space and creating a landscape that allows for a variety of uses and actions, we aim to create a kindergarten that offers children an unlimited number of opportunities to stimulate their creativity and develop their skills to the fullest.

The high costs of high urban property values

The costs of this misfiring property market are huge, mainly because of their effects on individuals. High housing prices force workers towards cheaper but less productive places. […]

Tot up these costs in lost earnings and unrealised human potential, and the figures become dizzying. Lifting all the barriers to urban growth in America could raise the country’s GDP by between 6.5% and 13.5%, or by about $1 trillion-2 trillion.

BSG Sales Gallery / Eowon Designs

Architects: Eowon Designs
Location: Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, 10450 Pulau Pinang, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
Area: 22004.0 ft2
Year: 2015
Photographs: Teh Weng Jen

Submitting Architect: Hock Tan architect
Interior Design: Eowon Designs Sdn. Bhd.
Contractor: Eowon Designs Sdn. Bhd. + Yu Tong Construction
Client: Nuwata Sdn. Bhd.

From the architect. Completed in 2015, our latest project – BSG Sales Gallery, another great team work by our architecture team x interior design team, Nestled along the hustle bustle street of Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, formerly known as Northam Road. A very different kind of its uniqueness outstanding very much among all it catches one’s first glimpse! A not-so-an-ordinary sales gallery.

What is catching the first glimpse in the eyes upon the arrival at the information counter –  skillfully designed and selected by one of the rarest find in the local,  Eiffel white marble stone imported from Greece with a mix of oxidized steel. To exude a subtle feel, in between visibility & invisibility – the infinity rod cables aligned together as the backdrop distinctively for the company title.

One flat layer is just not good enough. We created some layers on the interior part –  a little more secluded, a little more space, a tad more exclusive discussion section while still able to keep the entire space integrated. This inspiring discussion area, or, also called as, meeting section – meticulously embraced with geometric lines, steels, cable rods, up-leveled tropical timber platform.

Carried out with cementitious flooring, Eiffel white marble stone, raw tropical timber, cable rods, raw steel and oxidized steel. It is not an easy task to appeal still spacious and organized when all areas integrated into one,  we carefully considered every material selected to be used in the space. To be able to enhance the interior space to the designated intention and working its functionality still, yet keeping a well balance feel.

As for the courtyard, it is never enough only basking in the indoor’s indulgence we passionately created for the people’s pleasure; Take a break, take a walk along the walkway at the courtyard filled with greens and stones – imagine just for a moment basking in the sunshine, fresh air, all the pleasant warmth an outdoor space has to offer. We delightfully created a space just that, for everything pleasant, nothing less.

The grand entrance boldly strengthens and enhances with vertical timber fins, tropical element that fits flawlessly well. Even a subtle small detail counts to bits – exclusively paying small attention even just to a door handle, we designed to impress.
