Its horseshoe form arose as a logical outcome of the masterplanning restrictions which dictated the roof height and slope as well as the amount of required elevation on each face. These requirements were overlaid with client&rsquo;s needs, including large floorplates and lifting the building off of the ground to afford some privacy and security to the sensitive work being performed inside.

The importance of the city in the global context is linked to this elaboration of the empty field left behind in its center; the articulation of a different identity of the city has to face the financial turmoil and the traces it leaves or the designed counter reactions that it possibly introduces, after the recognition of the problematic downtown areas.</p><p>The curriculum focuses on the very historical triangle of Athens, on an area historically defined as part of the commercial centre, extending on both sides of Evripidou street located in the district that Kleanthis and Schaubert firstly designed. Evripidou connects the two middle points of the two sides of the triangle that was conceived together with the idea of a possibility for a modern capital.

They provide accurate information related to each aspect of the pre-fabricated components of the project to be designed. Quality shop drawings contain accurate representations of a product and the information i.e. dimensions and specifications that are needed by the architect or engineer to develop that product.

This has brought significant changes in the expectations of both potential homebuyers and investors as both want a good return on their investment. For this reason, the homebuilders have become more cautious while working on projects. Besides the rising expectations of buyers and investors, getting approvals and permits from the local authorities makes things more challenging for the homebuilders.</p><p>To overcome these challenges, <a href="http://www.bluentcad.com/3d-rendering-services-for-home-builders-toronto.html" target="_blank"><strong>architectural rendering</strong></a> has emerged as a fantastic option. 3D rendering helps homebuilders communicate and promote their project details in a life-like photorealistic way. 3D renders convey accurate and detailed design plan to the buyers. They add life to the design by including textures, finishes, landscaping, interiors and an appropriate human centered environment.</p><p>Homebuilders are now collaborating with 3D rendering firms to leverage the advantage of 3D rend...</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/6259264/aedas-designed-mongkok-residence-wins-leaf-awards-2014/111366170 Aedas-designed Mongkok Residence wins Leaf Awards 2014 JessW 2014-10-15T23:08:22-04:00 >2014-10-15T23:08:22-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/7w/7w422w7cbltidhog.jpg" width="514" height="375" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Aedas&rsquo; project Mongkok Residence in Hong Kong was named the category winner for Best Future Building of the Year &ndash; Under Construction at Leading European Architects Forum (Leaf) Awards 2014.</p><p>The design of the building drew inspirations from the city&rsquo;s post-war structures and sets an excellent example of contemporary interpretation of traditional architecture. In the early post-war years, it was common to create illegal iron balconies for residential units in Mongkok, a hyperdense neighbourhood in Hong Kong, to acquire maximum view. Project Design Director Cary Lau reinterpreted these structures in a modern way, using irregular protrusions to create unobstructed views for each apartment.</p><p>Also inspired by the home gardens which people created on the balconies, Aedas came up with a green wall that seemingly protrudes from the solid fa&ccedil;ade of the podium to further connect the building with the historical cityscape. This green wall will enhance the quality of life for the neighbourhood by ...</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/88087229/grandpa-johnson-s-opening-la-times/111346860 Grandpa Johnson's Opening - LA Times RelativityArchitects 2014-10-15T17:04:44-04:00 >2014-10-21T22:43:15-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/6y/6yymi0e6iwy4jg48.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Grandpa Johnson's Opening - LA Times</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/88087229/grandpa-johnson-s-opening-urban-daddy/111346859 Grandpa Johnson's Opening - Urban Daddy RelativityArchitects 2014-10-15T17:03:03-04:00 >2014-10-15T17:03:03-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/xw/xw1rzz8lvrxxxs2l.jpg" width="514" height="665" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Grandpa Johnson's Opening - Urban Daddy</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/88087229/hutchinson-opening-urban-daddy-la/111346858 Hutchinson Opening - Urban Daddy LA RelativityArchitects 2014-10-15T17:02:14-04:00 >2014-10-15T17:02:14-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/o4/o4w1q3xyo3e8czxf.jpg" width="514" height="665" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Hutchinson Opening - Urban Daddy LA</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/88087229/hutchinson-opening-eater-la/111346055 Hutchinson Opening - Eater LA RelativityArchitects 2014-10-15T17:00:53-04:00 >2014-10-15T17:00:53-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/3o/3orb8aioarkqfosp.jpg" width="514" height="289" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Hutchinson Opening - Eater LA</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/88087229/hutchinson-opening-la-magazine/111346054 Hutchinson Opening LA Magazine RelativityArchitects 2014-10-15T16:59:54-04:00 >2014-10-15T16:59:54-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/bn/bnab50n3z63x06et.jpg" width="514" height="506" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Hutchinson Opening - LA Magazine</p>
