CDB Bank & Minsheng Bank Financial Building / ZHUBO DESIGN

June 30, 2021 Yu Xin Li 0

The project is located near the Civic Center in Futian district, CBD of Shenzhen. Theoretically, this is a good location, but unfortunately, there are already many tall buildings in the surroundings so that the project can hardly be seen on the arterial roads. Besides, although this block is small, it’s owned by two banks. From the perspective of urban design, it suggests that through the overall design and development of the two parties, a “shared hall” should be built as an entrance at the center of the plot. But the two owners were not willing to build a real “shared hall”, for fear of ownership problems of shared properties. These are the two major difficulties of this design.

Jamie Chioco, principal at Chioco Design in Austin, Texas had the opportunity to design his and his wife’s personal residence. Completed in 2019, the two-bedroom home is located in the East Austin neighborhood of Cherrywood. Chioco, who has owned the property for sixteen years had lived in a 1950’s house typical to the neighborhood and in 2017 decided to start from scratch. The couple decided to relocate the 750 square foot home to a new location about two miles away. After all, it was a perfectly good house that didn’t need to go to the landfill. Designing one’s personal home proved to be an interesting process. After all those years of living on the property, it was easier to assess the site.

Yet the distinct features of each period coalesce in timeless fashion to form a symbiosis of urbanism. In keeping with the rhythm of change over the centuries, the Hotel Weisses Kreuz fits into this pattern, providing a uniquely appealing architectural challenge for noa*.
