The architecture project by Nuno Ladeiro and Marco Martins, is inserted in the urban core of Vila Nova de Tazem, a small country town near Serra da Estrela, in the north of Portugal, which is characterized by a consolidated urban fabric, whose predominant characteristics are buildings of 2 and 3 floors for residential.
Configuration, boundaries of the land and built environment, strongly influence the shape of the building and deployment.
Architecture is based mainly on the optimization of commercial and residential space with 15 apartments of various types, T1, T2, T3, served by three vertical communication cores completely independent.
The functional organization especially favors the social area of the apartments, not only in terms of area but also as regards the views of Serra da Estrela. Therefore, it was established a direct relationship between rooms and kitchens, creating a more intimate circulation zone closer to the rooms.
From a formal point of view, the project took as its starting point the work of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and, in particular, an almost unknown work, the “memorial to the Spartacist leaders Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, commissioned by Eduard Fuchs, president of the German Communist Party in Germany” opened on June 13, 1926 and later destroyed by the Nazi regime.
Since this is clearly a modern architectural option, the authors understand that the constructivist-inspired elementary geometry and the consequences of rationality, associated with aspects of simple logic, are not only manifestations of a bygone era. The use of the geometric cube and the parallelepiped has a universality that continues to “contaminate” the architecture of the XXI century. Therefore, modern rationalism, evident in the facades of this proposal, corresponds in part to a more meaningful calculation of constructivist geometric symbols that in fact are part of modern architecture which is not yet exhausted.
The spirit of the place, the black stone, the white of the snow and the desire to revive the memory of modern architecture in Portugal were crucial to the choices made.

Under Armour worked with CUBIC to create a proprietary wall solution for the centerpiece of the store in Baltimore. Integrated into Corian wall panels, CUBIC's D15 single-point display system is used with custom shoe holders to present a variety of footwear and merchandising.
For this flagship store for Under Armour, which opened earlier this year, CUBIC worked with the designer to create a proprietary wall solution for the centerpiece of the store. In addition, a new articulating shoe platform and surface mounted track system is used on tiered islands around the perimeter of the footwear area. Chandler incorporated the CUBIC elements into the millwork and fixtures.
CUBIC customized its Trax H3 slim horizontal slot display system for integration into Under Armour's wood platforms. Shoe risers, engineered specifically for this project, pivot for precise angles and alignment. A co-injection-molded shoe platform with the UA logo and soft rubber "grip" material helps stabilize the shoes and provide branding. Integrated into Corian wall panels, CUBIC's D15 single-point display system is used with custom shoe holders to present a variety of footwear and merchandising. The mechanisms engineered for the pivoting shoe risers required tooling and molded components.
Chandler provided engineering and production for the fixture/millwork package for the store, including the logo wall and wood cladding, cash wrap with Corian shroud and melamine cabinet, floor fixtures and tables, perimeter wall bays, wood slabs (with CUBIC track system integrated), and footwear are seating, fitting room doors and benches, and the central Corian shoe wall (with Cubic components integrated). Wood throughout is Douglas Fir, used in combination with steel tubing.
