The “Absolute Towers” in Ontario, Canada is really one of a kind. It's a twisting skyscraper. Love to see it in person.

Creative and Functional Garden Pavilion in London: The Shoffice Project

Combining function and sculptural design, the creative minds at Platform 5 Architects developed an interesting project in London, England. Shoffice is a garden pavilion located to the rear of a 1950′s terraced house in St John’s Wood and displays a fascinating exterior. The brief of the owners required a “sculptural object that flowed into the garden space“, so the architects achieved just that: an unfolding structure made of wood, perfect for accommodating a quite office and a shed

Here is an excerpt from the official press release provided by the project developers: “The glazed office space nestles into an extruded timber elliptical shell, reminiscent of a wood shaving, and forms a small terrace in the lawn. The interior is oak lined and fitted out with a cantilevered desk and storage. Two roof-lights – one glazed above the desk with another open to the sky outside the office bring light into the work space“. To us, this looks like a modern, practical and aesthetically appealing project. We look forward to seeing your reactions as well.

Rocky Architecture Meets Ultimate Holiday Thrills in Mykonos, Greece

Immersed in the natural rocky landscape of Mykonos and offering great open views of the Aegean sea, Rocky Retreat Two is a perfect holiday escape for those in search of special accommodation. The traditional rocky exterior of the residence is complemented by great outdoor features: “A generous lagoon shaped infinity pool, built with special sand-colored materials with rock elements, donates a very natural feel to the property, located in front of the house and next to a large wooden shaded pergola. The mansion offer guests a beautiful and spacious dining area with a traditional wood fire BBQ, perfect for entertaining day and night. An open bar with stools overlooking the sea completes the picture“. The interiors are a perfect reflection of what villa inspires on the outside: coziness and ultimate relaxation are revealed throughout. Each rooms displays an intriguing combination of traditional materials and furniture, spiced up with modern decorating ideas. The overall result is a beautiful holiday villa, where one can truly enjoy the feel of a Greek Island

Central Los Angeles Area High School #9, Los Angeles, United States
Design for High School #9 realised as building completes
The design by Austrian architects Coop Himmelb(l)au for the Central Los Angeles Area High School #9 for the visual and performing arts has completed and will open in September 2009 for the new term.

Central to the building is the suitably dramatic theatre which holds just short of 1,000 audience members and will be open to the public as well as the 1,800 students providing a public space which was previously lacking in the Grand Avenue area.

Each student is matriculated within one of four academies representing each of the arts disciplines, accordingly there are 4 separate classroom buildings as well as the theatre, the library and the cafeteria making up the seven building campus.

Coop Himmelb(l)au’s design concept is to use architectural signs as symbols to communicate the commitment of the Los Angeles community to Art. Like chess figures three sculptural buildings, which relate to the context of downtown Los Angeles and the program, redefine spatially and energetically the otherwise orthogonal arrangement of the master plan. A Tower figure with spiralling ramp in the shape of the number 9 located on top of the theater’s flyloft serves as a widely visible sign for the Arts in the city and a point of identification for the students. Inside the tower, an event, conference and exhibition space with a view across the city is planned to be located
