NOVAWOOD OFFICE AND SHOWROOM, TURKEY STUDIO VERTEBRA


Novawood Office and Showroom Building has been designed by Studio Vertebra for a company that produces wood and forest products, in Istanbul. The yard in front of the building can be used as an activity/event area. There is a showroom area to exhibit wooden products on the ground floor, and office units on the other floors. More efficient areas have been designed in the interior spaces by reinforcing the bearing systems of the structure and moving the staircase to the rear. The opening on the ground floor not only provided a secondary entrance to the basement floor but also fed the courtyard with natural light. The building has won two prizes in the categories of Building Architecture and Interior Architecture of the Space in the Europe Property Awards. Ref: 4252


ARVAL HEADQUARTERS, ITALY PIERATTELLI ARCHITETTURE


Pierattelli Architetture has designed a concept combining in one project a distinctive iconic shape, technological innovation, and social and environmental sustainability. Arval is one of the leading companies in long-term car rental and its new headquarters in Florence represents the themes of social and environmental sustainability that characterise the company. The “Photovoltaic Bolt” aims to be a building that “architectonically represents a landscape landmark – an architecture where the word ‘sustainability’ is not just an abstract or decorative concept”. The “Bolt” is a Climate House Class A building without emissions and self-sufficient thanks to geothermal pumps and photovoltaic panels. The 7000 m2


of offices and common spaces are distributed over three floors and a basement that each host


about 200 employees per floor. Spaces are articulated around a central dorsal on a north-south axis to provide an east-west direction and guarantee a correct sunlight position. The complex has huge photovoltaic wings, realised through special photovoltaic flexible panels with a high efficiency, located on a lightweight steel structure and integrated with the ones on the roof.

HELSINKI CENTRAL LIBRARY OODI, FINLAND


YIT / ALA ARCHITECTS


Helsinki Central Library Oodi will open in December 2018. The construction work at the Oodi site has already progressed so that the shape of the building is starting to become clear. Antti Nousjoki, a partner at ALA Architects says: “The structural details of the glass facade are especially ambitious. The prints in the glass have been realised with a state-of-the-art printing technique – an algorithm has been used to define the placings of dots in the pattern so that there is no repetition. The result will be hazy, as if a cloud had landed by the windows”. Ref: 1813
