May-Jun 2017
Public Housing, Hong Kong

The historical Chai Wan Factory Estate was constructed in June 1959. It is the last H-shaped factory building in Hong Kong, with an area of 0.4 hectares, located in close proximity to the MTR station. With the purpose of enhancing public awareness of heritage conservation and sustainable housing development, the existing industrial building was retained for adaptive redevelopment.

Apollo Tyres Global R&D Center

The project is a centre for study, creativity, innovation and growth, as well as to carry out extensive testing and experimentation in high-performance laboratories in the field of automobile tyres.

May-Jun 2017
Suasana Putrajaya

Lying along the main boulevard in Precinct 2 in Putrajaya, the Suasana Putrajaya building has received the Green Building Index (GBI) silver rating (provisional) in 2014 and is scheduled to be completed by the middle of this year. It is designed to fulfil the owner Putrajaya Holdings’ vision of having an anchor project within the mixed-use development district of Precinct 2 in Putrajaya.

   
     
May-Jun 2017
Atlas Hotel in Hoi An

The building façade is clad with locally sourced sandstone pieces used in combination with an exposed concrete slab and a series of planters along the corridors. The planters are arranged along the entire façade of the hotel not only to provide solar shading, but also to allow cooler air to ventilate the spaces.

   
     
May-Jun 2017
Maison T

This house and its garden stand humbly amidst the surrounding building blocks. Instead of using all the land or keeping an indoor courtyard space, the house is set back from the street to offer the whole alley a green space—with plantings and creepers growing on brick walls—a small but precious ‘breathing’ gap in the dense urban setting.

   
     
Mar-Apr 2017
Tangshan Organic Farm

The project is a processing workshop for organic food. Raw materials that come from organic food producing areas across the country are collected, processed and packed here, and the finished products are then distributed to other places.

   
     
Mar-Apr 2017
Pixelet

by Nitika Agarwal

Located in Kirti Nagar, a densely populated industrial market in Delhi, the project is a production unit of garments, a single facility that consolidates the manufacturing process of fabrics from raw materials to finished products, exclusively for export.

   
Mar-Apr 2017
Rajasthan Solar Processing Zone

An initiative to showcase upcoming technologies in solar power generation, this solar farm is being promoted by a developer using a model of development that brings together multiple investors on one land. The developer is in effect selling serviced plots; providing cleaning, repair and maintenance services; metering and pooling of electricity; its transmission to the state grid; and disbursement of payment from the state grid to the individual plot owners.

   
     
Mar-Apr 2017
Method South Side Soapbox

Industrial precincts traditionally conjure images of smokestacks—gritty,
hardened buildings spewing effluents and breeding squalor in their wake.
The Method Manufacturing Facility in the historic industrial town of Pullman,
Chicago represents an effort to break this stereotype and construct a new,
clean industrial model.

   
     
Mar-Apr 2017
Deutsche Bekleidungswerke Ltd Factory Long Hau

Deutsche Bekleidungswerke (DBW) has an existing client base including premier fashion labels with strong environmental credentials. Consequently, for the new factory in Vietnam, they elected to go far beyond basic compliance and demonstrate environmental leadership, choosing to dual-certify at the highest level with Platinum LEED and LOTUS. DBW took a strong stance from the outset on worker comfort and health. They set sustainability goals to maximise benefits to occupants, in addition to benefitting the bottom line.

   
Jan-Feb 2017
Neeson Cripps Academy

The architects wanted to build a learning compound with interactive and flexible gathering spaces. Much of the ground level will be left open to provide a sheltered space with a visual connection to a large courtyard garden—this seeks to maximise natural lighting and lessen the school’s vulnerability to flooding.

   
     
Jan-Feb 2017
The International School of Kuala Lumpur

Designed to be Malaysia’s first school to achieve the Green Building Index (GBI) Platinum rating, the new campus of the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) is currently being constructed on a 26-acre site in Ampang Hilir and expected to open in August 2018.

   
     
Jan-Feb 2017
Institute for Integrated Learning in Management Campus

Contextually responding to its harsh local microclimate, the project was conceived to fortify itself from the external environment and create a relevant oasis-like internal environment. This resulted in the inward-looking morphology, with a high thermal mass on the outer faces that blocks out the hot winds predominant in the region.
