A set of buildings is planned for this 90,000-square-meter property to help improve the flow of public transport in the existing location. This aim is to improve people’s transit and the surrounding urban area, and to give users more security and a better organized space. The project consists of a bus station on the ground floor which connects with the Cuatro Caminos metro station, located in the middle of the CETRAM. From here, two wings branch out to the north and south stations. The platforms and the bus maneuvering area is found on this level, and stores are arranged along the pedestrian routes.

An 18-storey building will be built in the southern wing, with business premises on the ground and first floors, and office space on the remaining levels, offering a total built area of 32,000 m2.  An internal circuit within the CETRAM improves the efficiency of the bus transport operations, providing just two access points on the main thoroughfares.

The passenger flow is distributed along two bays to board and alight from the buses, and is connected to the exit routes from the platforms of the existing metro platforms. Users can walk into the center across two entrance plazas, one facing onto Av. Ingenieros Militares and the other onto Av. Transmisiones Militares.

The entrance plazas and platforms distribute the users on the first level, ensuring a continuous flow to the stores while also staggering the routes toward the platforms.  The third level completes the development with a food court and movie theaters.  The design includes three underground parking lots to meet the regulations that specify the required number of parking spaces.

The façades are clad in patterned die-cut aluminum sheets, and the construction system lightens the building and speeds up the building process since most of the component parts are prefabricated in offsite workshops.

Five Firms Design Western Australia’s First Large-Scale Timber Building

Designed to encompass 15,000 square meters of program, Murdoch’s new academic building will house the university’s School of Business and Governance. The project is inspired by the modernist architecture of the existing campus by designed Gus Ferguson, incorporating a gable roof alongside contemporary construction systems. “The existing campus has a coherent architectural character of linear masonry buildings framing native landscape courtyards. These courtyards are typically bordered by long colonnades that form the primary circulation network of the campus and are protected by generous gable roof forms.”

Five existing buildings will be demolished to make way for the new construction. The academic project is made as a “creative warehouse” that features flexible partitions, and a new arrival court will act as the main entrance to the campus in the south. No timeline for completion has been announced.

Private villa project registered for LOTUS Homes Certification

The private villa, located in Hung Phu Residential Area, Cai Rang District, Can Tho Province, is aiming for LOTUS Platinum Certification for Housing (LOTUS Homes).

Most of the villa space is naturally lit with vertical sunshade system or green space to limit sunlight to the inside, whereby reducing energy consumption for cooling. Especially, green area around the villa is also focused to help reduce the heat island effect and control stormwater runoff.

On the other hand, the villa will also use a lot of modern equipment such as:

  • Low-E glass system (low emissivity) which is imported from Germany.
  • Solar panel system providing most of the energy used.
  • Fresh air supply system combined with natural ventilation to ensure the health of occupants.
  • Home appliances with 4-5 star energy label.

The project is being consulted by GreenViet.

LOTUS is a set of voluntary market-based green building rating systems developed by the VGBC through long-term research, with the expert advice of specialists giving particular consideration to Vietnam’s economic and natural characteristic and existing Vietnamese standards and policy.

Sculptural Mixed-Use Complex Designed for Suburban Queensland

Design practice Conrad Gargett have created a proposal for a sculptural mixed-use complex in the Brisbane suburbs of Queensland, Australia. Sited in Lutwyche, the project aims to become an integrated development built to accommodate an ageing population in Queensland. Dubbed Lamington Markets, the design overlays public amenities and commercial spaces with local recreation space.Lamington Markets. Image Courtesy of Doug and Wolf

As Conrad Gargett states, the development idea began as a typical transit-oriented mixed-use development, incorporating market retail, SoHo housing, cinemas, commercial spaces, and residential apartment mix. The development caught the attention of retirement living operators, and transformed to address a gap in accommodation options for seniors in the local region. The apartments are sized and planned to universal design requirements, ensuring circulation spaces and accessibility for the mobility-challenged; they can also be easily retrofitted with home support fixtures to allow ageing-in-place. The Lamington Markets building includes two residential towers atop the commercial complex below.

A development application for Lamington Markets has been submitted with Brisbane City Council.
