New York Dermatology Group
New York – Opening Soon
Interior Architectural Design
Interior architectural design for New York Dermatologist Groupâs flagship Wellness Center, located in Manhattanâs historical âLadiesâ Mile District. The project spans two floors of a landmarked building, and comprises 7,000 sq ft of wellness and treatment facilities. Designed as a luxurious interior, eight new state of the art treatment rooms are organized into a freestanding architectural pavilion or âpodâ, which creates the feature architectural element of the main floor. The goal of the design was to create a beautiful and timeless interior that combines contemporary and classic elements. Interior fixtures were custom fabricated in Italy with great attention to detail.
This pod is visible from the street and serves as both a functional and iconic statement for the Wellness Center.
In addition to the pod, the main floor includes a retail area where NYDGâs exclusive cosmetics line is displayed and made available to the public.
Universidad de los Andes
School of Management:
Institutional and corporate offices
Brandon Haw Architecture is pleased to share the construction progress of our building for the Universidad de los Andes, as part of the Serena del Mar development in Cartagena. Construction of the building superstructure was recently completed, and the building is expected to be finished by Winter 2017.
Universidad de los Andes
School of Management
Institutional and corporate offices
Located just north of the historic center of Cartagena de Indias in Colombia.
The building will house the prestigious University of Los Andes International School of Business and Management as well as commercial offices.
Designed to capture northerly breezes to maximize air movement over pools of cool water creating a shaded micro-climate within central courtyards – a functional interpretation of local Cartagena architecture.
External glass fiber reinforced concrete fins shelter the full height glazing from the local hot sun throughout the day, reducing the cooling load of the building.
Gran Reserva de Madeira
Residential Development, Masterplan and Landscaping
Gran Reserva de Madeira is situated in BogotÃ¡âs growing Ciudad Salitre neighborhood.
The masterplan creates a hierarchy of public open space via a network of pedestrian boulevards drawing residents into the heart of the development. The aim is to create a strong sense of place and ownership of the spaces between each building; an approach that highlights Brandon Haw Architectureâs vision and work in landscape design.
The development comprises ten apartment buildings in four phases, with an assorted mix of amenities at the base of each building. The project is oriented to maximize direct sun into the crescent park, whilst connecting the project to the neighboring Ciudad Salitre district.
As with many of the firmâs projects, the structural system is expressed in its architecture. Each building communicates the seismic structure through textured concrete fin walls, colored to evoke the terracotta brick architecture of BogotÃ¡. These structural elements plant each building to the ground upon âpilotisâ that land into shallow reflecting pools of water; raising apartments above the first floor level, creating views through and under each residential block.
The cladding of the apartment units creates a controlled, yet varied composition of elements within the expressed structural grid.
This large scale project carefully breaks down the scale of the human experience, by creating a spatial hierarchy within the masterplan and within the detail of the architecture.
Mixed Use – Car park with retail and residential
400 Collins is a mixed-use development in the Miami Beach South of Fifth Historic District. Upon completion, it will be the cityâs only luxury multi-residence car park. The project distinguishes itself by combining high-end residential units at roof level, set within their own private landscaped gardens, nesting above a primary use car parking structure. The car park itself sits above an exclusive dining establishment along Collins Avenue, thus actively contributing to the life of the neighborhood. 400 Collins acts as a contextual response to its function and place, whilst engaging in Miamiâs dialogue of architecturally innovative parking structures. Visually captivating yet seamlessly integrated into its surroundings, the project draws upon the work of Leonard Horowitz and Barbara Capitman in the late 70âs that sought to establish a distinctive color palate for this historic neighborhood. 400 Collins is therefore an exercise in scale, subtlety and restraint that speaks to Brandon Haw Architectureâs established design narrative, while simultaneously diversifying the firmâs typological capabilities.
An outer layer of white vertical fins shade an inner skin of vibrant color, designed to reflect color and light between interior and exterior. Spaced irregularly, the tubular shades sometimes reveal more or less color to the observer. The resulting design creates a changing color wave from one floor to the next impacting the user and observerâs experience according to vantage point, seasonal weather fluctuations and time of day.
Universidad de los Andes Competition
Brandon Haw Architecture was invited by the Universidad de los Andes to participate in a limited design competition for the expansion of its campus encompassing 260,500 ft2 (24,200 m2) of new construction and public spaces. The masterplan and architectural design integrates the campus with the surrounding urban environment, and seeks to firmly establish the university as an academic and cultural engine of the city.
The program for the new development includes: a research center for information technologies; a âBlack Boxâ theater for an audience of 600; an exhibition hall; two administrative departments; and classrooms, laboratories, and study areas for students.
Founded in 1948, the Universidad de los Andes is one of Colombiaâs most prestigious universities, with over 18,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. The campus has grown organically in the foothills of the mountains at the eastern edge of BogotÃ¡, with an average change in level reaching 250 feet (77 meters) from one end to another, making it a uniquely âhorizontal/verticalâ campus. The competition site is located in the northwestern corner of the campus, effectively making it the universityâs âfront door.â
Brandon Haw Architecture was selected by the university as the only international firm to participate in the competition as a âproject leaderâ, leading a team of local technical consultants for the development of the proposal.
Located in the Collins Avenue Historic District of Miami Beach adjacent to Roy France’s classic Versailles Hotel built in 1941 and the Faena House completed in 2015.
Designed to create open space around the original landmark Versailles and to maximize views to both the ocean and to the western sunsets.
Large cantilevered balconies and rounded glazed corners create a harmonious relationship with both its historic and contemporary neighbors while providing shade and mitigated wind environments on the terraces.
Gracious living environments with well proportioned rooms with interiors designed to harmonize and reinforce the connection to the sensuous forms of the building exterior.
Corporate and retail
Located between El Dorado International Airport and downtown BogotÃ¡ on Calle 26. 1.35 million square feet of premium office space adjacent to the residential neighborhood of Gran Reserva de Salitre with over 500 residents.
Creates a unified architectural and urban response instantly recognizable from the highway with highly efficient environmentally responsive offices clustered around a lively central public plaza.
Chilled beams, natural ventilation and a highly efficient external seismic structural exoskeleton shade the glazed facades.
The central plaza is centered around a reflecting pool and amphitheater that allows light into the car parking structure below. Large specimen trees provide shading and encourage gathering.
Colonnaded retail and food and beverage outlets at the plaza level ensure building users and local residents can enjoy the plaza with its performing arts events and shaded places to sit and relax throughout the day and evening as well as at weekends.
An eight story luxury residential development located in the heart of Bogota’s Chapinero district. Situated on a steeply inclined site adjacent to three landmarked buildings, the project has been developed to follow the contours of the site and be organized around a secure central courtyard that forms the heart of the development.
Structural fair-faced concrete seismic shear walls are expressed in the building forms, ‘bound together’ at each floor level by bronze finish metal ‘straps’ that encircle each building.
Sliding sun and privacy screens at each balcony modulate the terraces with their expansive views to the mountains and the city.
Each residential dwelling has been designed to accommodate the expectations of the typical and specific Bogotan lifestyle.
