Named for the classic Tuscan beach resort, the restaurant captures Italy's effortless yet refined vibe. Credit goes to the thoughtful renovation by Miami architect Chad Oppenheim, pared-back interiors by Milanese designer Henry Timi, and gardens by Enzo Enea. These all incorporate natural materials to evoke the muted palette of ivory, sand, and linen.

MPREIS SUPERMARKET von Refin | https://www.architonic.com/en/project/refin-mpreis-supermarket/5106360 Fri, 21 Sep 2018 14:47:48 +0200 The Austrian supermarket chain MPreis is known for its pioneering and visionary role in the distribution of carefully selected food products. Founded in Innsbruck in 1920 and still today a family business, the company currently has about 260 stores mainly in Tyrol, but also in the area of Salzburg, Carinthia and South Tyrol. Having overcome the traditional strategy of brand = uniform image, each store is unique because it is the result of a relationship with the surrounding landscape and the views of the customers. The result of collaborations with different architects who are given ample creative freedom, the stores do not implement a generic format but rather experiment with cutting edge solutions both in aesthetics and environmental impact: a high level of architectural quality that has earned MPreis prestigious awards and international recognition. The company's values are also reflected in its social responsibility, contributing considerably to the region's sustainable economy. Re… continue

FOOD COURT MY CHEF von Refin | https://www.architonic.com/en/project/refin-food-court-my-chef/5106359 Fri, 21 Sep 2018 14:33:42 +0200 The Food Court at Malpensa airport in Milan - an Italian street market created by a collaboration between MyChef, Barilla, Ferrarini and Mutti - is an innovative dining area that conveys the excellence of Italian food and its ingredients to travellers from all over the world. A large open kitchen divides the piazza into two areas with different functions: on one side the covered market with thematic kiosks that offer the chance to select and enjoy famous national dishes, on the other the "slow" restaurant for longer breaks and true chef service. The space is completed by a kitchen pantry, located on the mezzanine of every street box, featuring the best products of Italian cuisine. The nearly 1,500 square meters are furnished with Design Industry Raw Mix and Trail Natural, both of which are contemporary in style, helping to create a cosy and refined environment. Inspired by urban settings and contemporary architectural trends, Design Industry uses colour and structure to produce the continue

SPA MONTEROSA TERME von Refin | https://www.architonic.com/en/project/refin-spa-monterosa-terme/5106358 Fri, 21 Sep 2018 13:49:46 +0200 In the extraordinary natural setting of Ayas, in the province of Aosta - Itlay, rises Monterosa Terme, a spa resort facing Monte Rosa where low-impact materials like glass, wood and stone interact in complete harmony with the landscape. The selection for the spa's wall coverings was therefore focused on ceramics that could guarantee maximum durability while expressing a strong, earthy feeling. The Petrae collection, in the variant that interprets Barge quartzite, was used for the flooring of the entrance, reception and bathing areas thanks to the wide range of available formats. In the swimming pool area, the flooring extends from the floor to the inside of the pools thanks to special pieces specifically produced with the same look. The walls of the wet area and all the floor and wall surfaces of the wellness area are made with the Larix collection: the large slats were installed in various shades to recreate the pleasant cocoon feel of wood.

The Atlantic Pavilion von Valdemar Coutinho Arquitectos | Sports halls https://www.architonic.com/en/project/valdemar-coutinho-arquitectos-the-atlantic-pavilion/5106357 Fri, 21 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The building is situated next to “Avenida do Atlântico” in Viana do Castelo. An avenue facing the sea, in which a series of buildings are constructed, which, on a first impression, the urban front, in which the building is inserted, transmits a rather insipid image due to the nature of the programs and options taken in its projects. A characteristic which has become an asset in the conceptualization of the project of the Atlantic Pavilion. Besides the necessity of the City Council of Viana do Castelo having a sports pavilion, it gives support to the EB 2,3 Pedro Barbosa School and for complementarity use by the community to develop various modalities, it is mainly adjacent in the county’s objectives, to expand the population’s possibility of practising sports activities in covered facilities. Due to the necessity of a strong financial control and endow the thought of building infrastructures for a future easy access maintenance, the global cost of the work was restricted in a pre… continue

Nursing And Retirement Home, Bellinzona von Studio Gaggini + Nicola Probst Architetti | Kindergartens / day nurseries https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-gaggini-nicola-probst-architetti-nursing-and-retirement-home-bellinzona/5106356 Thu, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The new building is located at the intersection of two neighborhood streets and forms the corner of a new urban block. The compact volume allows the definition of a central free space, a new resident and public park that links and enhances the various elements: the new nursing home, an existing villa, an annex, a small church. The hilly landscape of the terrain has allowed dividing the road section where the main entrance is, and the park level, where all the common functions are grouped together. The parking lot was treated as a tree-lined space. The building typology is compact, with a central core. In the latter there are elevators, stairwells, and the service rooms for staff use. From the main entrance, through an entrance hall, you access directly to the upper floor, where you can find most of the common functions including physiotherapy, ergotherapy, dining, living room and bar. Here a glass facade puts the park in close relationship with the interior spaces, while a porch continue

Stack House von FreelandBuck | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/freelandbuck-stack-house/5106355 Thu, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Stack House is a newly built 2,207-square-foot residence designed and developed by award-winning LA and NY-based architecture office FreelandBuck. Comprised of four stories notched into a sloping hillside, this vertical house uses the subtle rotation of each room to create seamless indoor-outdoor spaces at every floor, each with unique and unobstructed views to the San Gabriel mountains. Working with difficult site constraints is central to the design of this house; unlike conventional hillside homes that appear to have been placed atop the slope, this house is embedded into it, creating a much closer relationship to the landscape. The primary living spaces at the third level (dining, kitchen, living, den) are organized into a simple grid of four rooms. The walls of each room curve at the center in a series of tangent arcs that blend the individual spaces while carefully opening views through the house. A central stair connects the living spaces to a rear dining patio and yard continue

Gracia mini apartment von YLAB Arquitectos | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ylab-arquitectos-gracia-mini-apartment/5106354 Thu, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The project consists of the interior reform of a former gatekeeper residence, located on the roof of a building in the Barcelona district Gracia. Enjoying a privileged location overlooking the neighboring buildings and surrounded by a large terrace, this apartment showed serious deficiencies such as its small size of 38 m2. An Australian couple wanted to reform the apartment to work as an occasional residence, giving priority to the day spaces. They wanted a warm, comfortable and functional space, as versatile and with as much storage as possible. Functionally the intervention proposes the creation of a main space formed by a kitchen with an island and a living area. At night, this space turns into a bedroom through the opening of a pull-down bed integrated in the wall cabinets. Hidden behind the kitchen is a more private area, consisting of a closetstudio that gives access to the bathroom. The design concept focuses on the enveloped space, covering walls and ceilings with cust… continue

Therefore they organized an architectural competition. As it happened, the winning proposal came from a German team of architects. A suitable site was found in Scheffau, which is the geographical center of the three municipalities. The new building is situated at the foothills of the "Wilder Kaiser" Mountain Range, directly adjacent to a former residential and care home that no longer corresponds to the required standards. The completion and opening of the new Nursing Home was in December 2017. The building consists of two compact volumes interlocking at the central section where they form an atrium. Three different outside spaces are created by the positioning on the plot: a public garden, a separate dementia garden and a playground for childre… continue

Ace Hotel New Orleans von Eskew+Dumez+Ripple | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/eskew-dumez-ripple-ace-hotel-new-orleans/5106351 Wed, 19 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Ace Hotel New Orleans is located on a corner lot in the historic Warehouse District, within walking distance of a gourmet grocery, upscale retail establishments, and a variety of fine dining options. This 184,000-square-foot mixed-use development centered around the renovation of an existing 9-story circa 1928 building. Once the home of the largest furniture store in the South, the building was designed by Weiss, Dreyfous and Seiferth, architects of the Louisiana State Capitol. In addition to renovating the Art Deco building, the project included a 4-story addition. Specific program components include a 234-room boutique hotel, bar, restaurant, meeting spaces, and retail. The addition complements the original building, referencing the existing building through the use of hand-made brick masonry and cast stone cladding. The project is punctuated with elements that recall images of New Orleans, such as a carriageway and courtyard, balcony gardens, and an eclectic collection o… continue

Scenic Advisement Offices von Feldman Architecture | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/feldman-architecture-scenic-advisement-offices/5106350 Wed, 19 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Upon entering this 5,000-square-foot space, one’s mind might not immediately jump to the quaint yet resonant past embedded in the bones of this historic Battery Street location. In fact, if not for the humble design elements including Douglas fir beams, high ceilings, and stall-like enclosures, there would be no indication of its original purpose. Built in 1909, and known historically as Bricca Stables, this former horse stable now boasts office space that marries the past with the present. “From a space-planning perspective, we approached it as being mostly open, but with enclosed areas for meetings,” says Tai Ikegami, managing partner at Feldman Architecture. “From a design perspective, we looked at it as making modern interventions within the historic space.” The spare, open layout contrasts with semi-transparent conference rooms that recall the horse stalls of the past. The space contrasts rough with sleek, and formal with informal in its modest, yet deliberate design. Each… continue

Cottage Near a Pond von studio A111 | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-a111-cottage-near-a-pond/5106349 Tue, 18 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Inspired by traditional fisherman´s cabins, we designed a small cabin on a bank of a pond, which is surrounded by a picturesque scenery. Its size is limited by the legislation. The maximum built-up area 50 m2 and the maximum height of 5 m require a special ground-plan solution for a family holiday house. The object consists of four small masses, three of which are connected and one separated, standing nearby. The central space is accessed by a minimal entrance through the kitchen, which also has a built in component of a rather small attic space intended to be a sleeping space for children. The kitchen offers a beautiful view of the water surface, as well as the bedroom, while the living space also opens up in the other direction, to the sunlit scenery of mature oaks. The individual separated object serves as a storage space with a covered porch suitable for drying fisherman´s nets or just silent contemplation surrounded by natural beauty. studio A111: Ing.arch.

Laurelhurst MidCentury von mw|works architecture + design | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mw-works-architecture-design-laurelhurst-midcentury/5106348 Tue, 18 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Designed by Ibsen Nelsen in 1961, the layout of this home was very well considered but the character and flow between spaces wasn't a good fit for the daily patterns of the new owners. High on the owner's wish list were increased physical and visual connections between rooms and to the outdoors. A central feature of the original design was a courtyard garden, experienced primarily through the living room. Careful reconsideration of the openings surrounding this space reframed it as a tranquil organizing element of the house, central not just to the living room but also to the entry, the daily circulation paths and the more informal spaces of the home. Single pane windows were replaced and extended floor to ceiling. Upgraded insulation and high efficiency radiant floor heat allowed the removal of ductwork and low ceilings, dramatically reducing the home's energy consumption. The new project is updated and more livable but still respectful of the best elements of the original design.… continue

The L- shaped building is the first phase and the cornerstone of the city block, offering mixed forms of tenure around a spacious, shared courtyard. <b>Common areas with good light conditions</b> The layout organisation is based on arranging all common and neutral areas into a central hub with individual departments located in each respective wing. The core of each department is its dining and living room, an open space reaching from façade to façade. Its large windows and tall ceiling heights provide great daylight conditions. <b>Spaces for social interaction</b> The common functions comprise an assembly hall, a conservatory, physiotherapy facility and a greenhouse on the rooftop with a view over the shared courtyard and the green recreation space. <b>Lively… continue

Guelmim Airport von Groupe 3 Architectes | Airports https://www.architonic.com/en/project/groupe-3-architectes-guelmim-airport/5106345 Mon, 17 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The new Guelmim airport is integrated in an existing military infrastructure located 3km north of the city. The stakes of the project were simplicity, efficiency, environmental control and extensibility, which is a prerequisite for the durability of an airport. It is with this objective that the construction of the building was designed in 2 phases, resulting in a linear design parallel to the runways. The terminal building consists of 2 double height halls, that hold the waiting areas which open onto the landscape on one side and on the runways on the other, protected by wide overhangs and a light-filtering façade. The low-emissivity metal filter is a patchwork of perforated panels that draw the shade and color the light, subtly evocating the decorative themes of the region. The linear main building located between the bonded zone and the duty free zone is topped with a patio that provides natural light to the heart of the building.

The concept of Bar TORÖ starts with the aim to develop a hospitality venue with a Mediterranean spirit, offering a service of a sports bar and Spanish tapas focused on an international clientele. The space located at the end of San Antonio, contains more than 200 m2, mostly occupied by a terrace at the edge of the sea. For the design, Masquespacio seeks to give major importance to the exterior mixing three colors: purple blue, turquoise green and mustard yellow. This way, together with the use of plants the intention was to create a modern and cheerful design. On the other hand, through the furniture layout and its design the aim was to play with the sports & tapas bar concept using areas with high and low benches, as well as zones to relax for small and big groups. Using high benches above the aim was to increase the… continue

Palexpo park hotel von group8 | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/group8-palexpo-park-hotel/5106343 Fri, 14 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The site, bordered by the airport runways, the motorway, the halls of Palexpo and the Parc Sarasin, has defined the particularities of the building. The volume creates a dialogue with the surrounding features. It runs parallel to the large halls, as does the existing administrative building, in order to define its relationship to the wooded park more precisely. The hotel, with a capacity of 227 rooms, has two layers of 2 and 3 stars combined. A cutting made in its base, corresponding to road width, reinforces the orientation to the park. The issue of scale has also determined the choice of materials: the hotel is clad in aluminium to blend in with the existing exhibition complex while creating a new visual identity. The system of metal disks, a motif borrowed from a famous dress by Paco Rabane, creates a unique image and a visual landmark that enhances the reality of the place. This visual pattern creates the perception of a speeding car, raising the question of the "decorated continue

The Perkins+Will multi-disciplinary design team provided architecture, operational planning, interior design, landscape architecture, and branded environmental and signage/wayfinding design for a fully integrated design focused on providing the most positive experience possible for patients and their families. The 176,000 square foot, 4-story building was planned for the patients’ convenience and shortened travel distances with five designated entries and nearby parking for specific patient treatments and care types.

Rainier. On top of the building, nearly seven-foot-tall letters wrap the building in billboard fashion, announcing “Charles Smith Wines Jet City.” The former 32,000 square-foot building is composed of two structures, a two-floor office building and a contiguous open-structure steel truss warehouse. Together, they provide space for everything from grape crush to barrel storage and bottling, to tasting rooms and sales. The transformation of this 1960s era building involved the removal of a portion of the exterior street-side façade replacing it with a 19x60-foot span of windows, opening the building up to the neighborhood and views.

National borders once in need of protection are now the site of a beautiful winery and lush vineyards, carefully landscaped and maintained. The design of the winery draws on the traditions and sources of inspiration similar to the ones of the Romantic buildings of the Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape. In our case, it was inspired by the image of a classical temple, which was then transformed into an abstract form of a slab supported by three rows of columns – a pavilion standing on a solid plinth. This pavilion gently complements the green horizon and vineyards. The building is divided into two areas– the underground wine production facilities and the above-ground premises which include a wine shop, a hall and a wine tasting room.

Designed by the New York office of global architecture firm Perkins+Will, Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Monmouth blends evidence-based design principles, such as views to nature and abundant natural light, with the state-of-the-art cancer care that patients have come to expect from MSK.

The Novembre firm of architects, playing with shapes in shades of black, white and Bordeaux red, created an ‘underground’ environment in contrast to the mass pizza culture, raising the quality of the premises and conveying knowledge, research and culture in the space as well as in the product.

Ristorante Naervaer von Ideal Work reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ideal-work-reference-projects-ristorante-naervaer/5106334 Wed, 12 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 In the heart of Copenhagen, there is an elegant wine bar / restaurant that welcomes its customers with style, refinement and, above all, warmth. Natural materials, dark and warm colours, details inspired by nature: everything contributes to creating an intimate and pleasant atmosphere. Industrial doesn’t mean cold. To understand this, all you must do is enter the Naervaer wine bar/ restaurant in Copenhagen, certainly a place of industrial style, but intimate, welcoming, where people gather to discuss and taste wines and delicacies. To achieve this atmosphere that is informal, hospitable and full of warmth, the Norm Architects studio used a palette of dark and warm colours combined with soft lighting. The materials are chosen to complement the typically industrial space yet, by introducing shades and textures, these are able to lighten and soften the effect for a more comfortable environment. Wood, stone, metal: the various materials used are all natural and have been modified to… continue

Social Housing Croisset, Paris von Hardel Le Bihan Architectes | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hardel-le-bihan-architectes-social-housing-croisset-paris/5106333 Tue, 11 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A short distance from the Clignancourt university campus, this building of 63 housing units is part of a development composed of two apartment buildings and a university cafeteria. The massing, arranged to ensure porosity from north to south, allows the sun through onto the tree-lined Rue de Croisset. In creating a large, south-facing open area at the middle of the development and a meadow on the roof of the restaurant, we were seeking to adhere to the original spirit of the greenbelt, which is now undergoing extreme densification. Compactness, slit, cut at an angle on the corner of the site, our project gives a new reading of the architectural language of the surrounding buildings of low-cost housing in order to improve urban comfort, optimise living space and provide higher levels of glazing in the facades. Very compact, the building is elongated by studied use of a second, lightweight skin that highlights its verticality. Following aesthetic principles based on how things a… continue

In the report the jury highlighted the ‘simple and convincing concept with internal atrium and mini-amphitheatre and its pleasant and playful architecture.’ The main focus for the project has been combining playful architecture and reducing the environmental footprint of the building through careful material choice and minimising energy demand. <b>Concept</b> The new school building is located in Orkanger, a town in Norway with 8 100 inhabitants. After the frst building phase (completed spring 2018), the new 1 800 sqm building will house 125 pupils, grades 4-7. The new building completes an existing school compound with several buildings dating from different periods and built in various styles. The new school building brings a modern addition to the compound, but also makes references to the existing buildings through the use of materials, colour… continue

Concrete Lace is illuminated by the soft golden light of the setting sun, interweaving between the concrete skeleton and becoming a part of the skyline. This curious building is part of Village 3 in the High-Tech Park master plan. Inspired by local, traditional North Vietnamese village features, the exposed courtyard radiates four pathways; connecting to the lush external landscape and acting as four entrances that reminisce the main gates of a traditional village. The grid structure of 12×25 meters allows a highly flexible and efficient use of space. Mixing green areas and open spaces they enhance the user’s experience through the building; inviting them to exchange, relax and enjoy the landscape. Sustainable design is ubiquitous; through maximising natural light, natural ventilation, gardens inside offices, sky gardens, rain water recycling a… continue

The name ‘MOPA’ served as an ironic allusion to the monikers of contemporary art museums, such as MOMA, MUMOK or MOCAK, to name but a few. While visiting the temporary Future Artefacts exhibition, MOPA visitors were taken to the year 2085 to explore artefacts from the first half of the XXI century supposedly discovered during archeological excavations in Vilnius and somehow related to the Crème de la Crème boutiques chain. The exhibits of the “museum” MOPA included the current Crème de la Crème haute parfumerie assortment, which was distressed using specific techniques, as well as some employees’ clothes, other items, and magazine advertisements. By using various distressing techniques, a spectacular effect reminiscent of archaeological discoveries was created. A very special place in the exhibition wa… continue

The exceptional situation of the site allowed us to turn the common areas and the hall towards the river: the residents can enjoy the choreography of passing boats. The programme consists of twenty-five fifty-square-meter homes, a restaurant in three sections, a computer room, a hobby workshop, a vegetable garden and a petanque field. Everything is organised to foster relations among the residents. Collective living spaces are as generous as possible, with abundant natural light. We have designed places that encourage exchanges and social interaction. Encounter-inviting events and sequences punctuate the routes. The staircase stands at the centre of the building, rendering it unavoidable. In combination with the wide central space, it invites mobility. Upstairs, the patio brings light from the south into the heart of the building. The white volume inside seems suspended; it deconstructs the empty space and lend… continue

Having spent the past decade in Oslo where Johnathon previously worked for Snohetta, Johnathon and Zoe wanted to acknowledge, not only the enduring minimal aesthetics of Scandinavian design they became attached to but the Nordic lifestyle and the value of a healthy work-life balance. ‘We are creating beautiful small buildings that allow people to connect with nature and embrace outdoor living.' Our ambition has been to create a lifestyle brand that is centred around the Nordic concept Friluftsliv (pronounced free-loofts-liv), an expression that translates to “open-air living”. Norwegian poet Ibsen described the term as the value of spending time in the remote outdoors for spiritual and mental wellbeing.

Located in a historical building, parts of which date back to 1898, and home to different media and creative offices, the new space was designed by Laura Seppänen Design Agency. Honouring both the historical bones of the building and the owners Elmo Luoma-aho and Jouni Rahikainen's food philosophy, Finnish designer Laura Seppänen has applied her clean and contemporary Scandinavian design aesthetic. Maannos offers diners a seasonal menu of largely vegetable-based dishes, using produce that has been almost exclusively grown in Finland. When translated from Finnish, the restaurant's name refers to the first and supposedly most fertile layer of soil. This was interior designer Laura Seppänen's starting point for establishing an aesthetic for the restaurant, which she decided to complete in colours akin to materials like soil, mud, clay, sand, and other elements of… continue

Located in the northeast corner of Shanghai, the old building is a typical product during the transition from a typical industrial economy to service economy. In this project, Wutopia Lab rethought the way to transform old building, by simply draping it with a new overcoat. Wutopia Lab has identified three key moments in the office, a multifunction lobby, a co-working place and a rooftop garden. The first floor is designed as a flexible event space, operated by DNA Café&More, a customizable community service, operated by Lobby Hobby's shared lobby, which integrates social, office, conference, short break, recreation, retail, six formats together based on a traditional lobby.

Custom-built banquettes from Intertime combined with design classics ensure that the customers not only dine superbly, but also sits in comfort. The gourmet Hôtellerie Châtonneyre is located in the heart of Lavaux. Built in 1971, the spacious premises offer many opportunities for guests to enjoy good food and fine wine. An outstanding selection of dishes, which change regularly, ensures a seasonal menu. Perfect pleasure needs comfortable seating. The architects chose Intertime to fulfil their vision of perfect upholstery. Designed by Intertime, the acoustically effective Cube Focus seating module combines elegance and ergonomics. The guest can sink into the polyether-cold foam seat, caressed by a leather covering (Decovin Nappa FR nero). The seat is held by a base frame of 18-mm-thick multilayer sheets.

Our clients sought to respect the existing single level character of the suburban court by minimising the visual impact of their double-storey home. Timber screens were used as a device to soften the solid rendered walls behind and to unify the facade. The downward sloping external timber screen compresses the frontage, giving the illusion of the house bending toward the ground. A spacious first floor balcony, enriched with potted plants, faces the street to create natural rather than built skyline. The balustrade’s lowest point faces the street, and combined with the sculptural entry canopy gives a gentle nod to the surrounding houses. A desire to avoid harsh materials prompted an environmentally friendly interior that uses oils instead of paints, polished concrete… continue

The breath taking setting and views of the Mediterranean inspired us to design a villa that is both very integrated in its surroundings and yet strikingly modern. The contrast between old and new returns in every little detail and the coherence of the design and the choice of materials such as wood, Corten steel, clay plaster and polished concrete has created a result that is minimalist yet warm. An old stone-built ruin in a breath taking setting, surrounded by 25 hectares of oak forest with distant views of the Mediterranean sea. Local building regulations stipulate that the building had to be rebuilt as it once was, but the owners were seeking to create an eco experience for high end rentals. Our work aimed to create a modern, luxury estate in an old stone envelope. We've opened the house up on all sides, letting the light flood in and bringing the views inside. The house sits on a steep incline and we've connected the ho… continue

The building gains in autonomy and becomes an urban landmark. It contains three music studios, one 500 seat modular auditorium, a bar, an exhibition gallery, and a large rehearsal room. The pivoting of the volume of the large rehearsal room creates a large empty space on the inside that connects with the other elements of the project. The geometrical conflict generated by this pivoting is revealed by the triangular shape the empty space creates. In association with the diagonal lines of the staircase, the walls bend in an upward movement. The black lacquered surfaces render perception of the space more complex. Right at the top, the light brought in by the white ceiling gives it the appearance of a starry sky. The spaces are gathered around this strange heart, which may be read as some kind of interior dislocation. The spatial instability generated b… continue

The sites originally contained multi-storey houses with a passage and were connected through backyards. After uniting these adjacent sites a new open space was created within the central urban structure. The space was then complemented with new objects. This is how the new public space of „Nádvorie“ (Courtyard) was created. The entire complex has access from Trojicne square, Stefanikova street by 3 original entrances with a future plan to enter from Pekarenska street. The reconstructed adjacent buildings were originally built with multi-storey houses with a passage.

The aim of the project is to create a new office form that promotes interesting and diversified interactions while maintaining high spatial efficiency. The design is crafted based on our two definitions of what make co-working spaces viable: Firstly, it goes beyond a mere open space for sharing, but rather a coexistence of both public and private spaces: this includes fluid shared work-spaces, as well as enclosed individual offices, meeting rooms and reading quarters. Secondly, co-working urges for a complex mix of spaces for serious work, relaxation and play: thus requiring standard offices where individuals work in sitting and standing formations, and free office configurations where people can work lying down.

The new building housing the Trondelag regional theatre is situated in the city of Verdal in mid Norway. The theatre creates much needed life to a cityscape that for many decades has lost popularity to the shopping malls with big parking lots. From it’s relationship to the urban context, through architecture, interior design and buildingintegrated art, the theatre contributes and activates an important part of the city center in Verdal which has been characterized by relocation of trade and decline in activity. The Johannes Minsaas square was previously a central square and market place in Verdal, but has lately lost much of its status.

These spaces must effectively combine the positives of both public and private arenas offering the professional users an efficient resource platform whilst also encouraging social interactions and accommodating for the temporary visitor. In the core of Ho Chi Minh City and enclosed in the center of a large factory complex, “Jungle Station” sets the benchmark for conceptual design of such spaces. The entirely refurbished printing factory responds not only to the logistical complications of shared program condensation but reflects on the intangible experience of shared space.

London-based maker and designer Rio Kobayashi stacks simple shapes made from cedar on top of each other: single components of basic symmetric shapes joined together by handmade connections of compound and dovetail joints. It is from these joints that the vases draw their name - dove, or hato in Japanese. The results are a series of totem-like wooden sculptural vases with edges painted in black and vermilion Japanese ink - the colour hiding the intricate woodwork of the joints and distracting the eye from more technical details. More than mere decoration, Rio Kobayashi sees these details as metaphors for the way we relate to craft in the world of modern design. ‘Machine-made goods are preferred by many buyers in our times and craftsmen can hardly compete’ Kobayashi explai… continue

The joints are precise, delicate and at the same time sturdy. Each piece is uniquely hand-painted in red, blue and yellow colours. The design of easy-chair, Mikadokun, and stool, Mikadochan, were inspired by the colourfully painted wooden sticks of the popular table game Mikado. Though taking its name from the Japanese word for emperor, the game Mikado was invented and popularised by a Hungarian company in the first half of the 20th century and is, in fact, relatively unknown in Japan. In his own work, Rio Kobayashi uses these cultural anomalies to play with clichés of ‘East’ and ‘West’, explaining that ‘The story of Mikado is interesting for me. I am Japanese-Austrian and I spent my childhood in the nature of Japan with two very different cultures at play. I always loved making sculptures and furniture using natural mater… continue

An operation that began with the refurbishment of an abandoned twentieth century building that Cibic has brought back from the brink. In so doing he has preserved its architectural image and managed to retain the authentic flavour of the Milanese courtyard: representative of the "style" typical of that period. The result is a hotel that evokes a mansion, an intimately friendly place that offers its visitors the unique experience of living the atmosphere of age-old Milan.

Located on the 30+ floor in the highest and most prominent building of the city, the Esentai Tower, this apartment is aimed to be a place for sensory and intellectual stimulation as well as a refuge for reflection and relaxation. The brief for the project was to create a setting purely for leisure, mainly intended for weekend breaks or short stays. This freed the design from the practical limitations usually associated with residential projects and made it a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the design team. Enjoying the full trust of the local client couple, COORDINATION was able to freely create and realise a vision of a very individual yet site-specific interior. Starting with a blank core & shell canvas the space was equipped with everything necessary for a luxurious multi-sensory experience celebrating a very unique setting. Initially intended as a three-bedroom apartment the layout was turned… continue

Keukenhof von Solarlux reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/solarlux-reference-projects-keukenhof/5106309 Sat, 01 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Keukenhof in Lisse, just outside Amsterdam, is the international showcase for Dutch flower cultivation. Over eight weeks from early March to mid-May, it is resplendent with everything Dutch flower cultivation has to offer: a 32-hectare extravaganza dedicated to early bloomers such as tulips and narcissi. This year, however, the masses of visitors were impressed by more than just the flowers themselves – the unusual new reception building was just as eye-catching. Keukenhof is an important meeting place for dealers. This year alone, up to 25,000 visitors from all over the world flocked to the exhibition – which enjoyed its 68th season in 2017 – every day. In order to cope with the throngs and the growing visitor numbers, a new entrance has been built for the Keukenhof grounds. The project was designed and built by Mecanoo, an internationally renowned architecture practice from Delft. The transparent 3,200 m² building boasts a number of striking architectural features: with its gradu… continue

If you look up in the sky you can’t miss this impressive building which develops vertically like a skyscraper: it’s the Silo, once used to store wheat and now converted into a luxury apartment building. In designing this project, the architecture firm COBE was inspired by the idea of transforming an old building into something innovative and yet preserving its historical value. The Silo is composed of 38 apartments and public services and is therefore not only a private building, but also a focal point for Nordhavn’s urban development. On the ground floor there is an art gallery, whilst on the top floor a restaurant with a 360-degree view faces both the city and the sea. Quite a sight for sore eyes.
From the 13th up to the 16th floor there are four unique apartments: these are c… continue

As we are required not to follow existing stereotype of fitness rooms and to stimulate brand-new fitness experience by use of space, we hereby make a probe into the relation between vision and profession. On the one hand, we extend different black wood finishes in the space like a black bottom plate, and on the other hand, we build separate virtual spaces and maintain their purity with the mirrors and specular reflection so as to create ultimate spatial experience. As for the space structure, we have created various semi-private and semi-closed spaces by use of positions and heights of the blocks and limited vision, which not only protects the privacy of the users but also keeps proper transparency. The external façade has been divided into show widows of leisure area, aerobic exercise area, and physical training area to optimize the commercial value of the space. With li… continue

Because of its location in a busy outdoor mall, we had to make the restaurant stand out to attract shoppers. We were also working with a rigid grid layout, exposed ductwork and columns inside – so we made some bold choices. Instead of trying to hide the columns, we made them – and the walls – a focal point with Chinese-inspired pattern play. This helped soften the grid and brighten the atmosphere. We also placed odes to China throughout, from colors of Chinese pottery to custom birdcage lamps – all balanced by neutral finishes. Beleco continue

Inspired by the artists and radicals who brought to life San Francisco’s North Beach and Jackson Square neighborhoods in the 1950s, CANOPY was designed to be a profound departure from the standard workspace. Strong site-lines organize the 13,000-square foot space, with CANOPY’s signature glass-enclosed private offices lining one side, and a café by Jane and open workspaces on the other. In the center, an organic lounge is a place-making architectural tour-de-force intended to encourage both casual conversations and work meetings. A literal, dramatic architectural canopy was built around three columns as a freestanding fanning structure that doubles as book and magazine shelving. The tree-like design serves as both a visual privacy screen to the conference room and work areas, as well as a containment… continue

This new 6,650sqm co-working and office building is named after Britain’s prolific master builder, Thomas Cubitt, who famously befriended Prince Albert and was responsible for transforming this area from a marshland into one of the capital’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. Surrounded by a predominantly Georgian context, Thomas House is actually a renovation of a corner block that only dates back to 1989 – originally designed as a pastiche of the buildings that line nearby Eccleston Square. SODA took the historic context of the Square as inspiration for the renovation, incorporating an appropriate design language into spatial layouts and contemporary details. The grand entrance hall mimics the rigorous organisation of the traditional Regency square, with four timber boxes forming the reception, work areas and a meeting space.

Being one of the leading photography studios within the industry, ASTUDIO space is destined to become a benchmark for this profession. Located on the east side of the central business district of Beijing within the Art Valley Cultural & Creative Industry Park, the design of new ASTUDIO space combines rustic industrial style with minimalist overtones. Being a 2 storey workshop originally, the space is ideal for photography, with enough area to satisfy the specific requirements from the photographer for the new studio, including the request for 2 separate areas for photography. UUA's proposal looked to first transform the original two-storey building into a three-storey space. By partitioning the space vertically, the large single space is divided into separate photo studios, each with an independent entrance and dressing room, thereby facilitating simultaneous and independent shooti… continue

Syshaus von Studio Arthur Casas | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-arthur-casas-syshaus/5106283 Fri, 24 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Syshaus House comes to the market bringing a new concept to live with quality, practicality and sustainability - not only ideals, but effective practices. The structural system is composed of standardized types of pillar, beam, joint node and screw, which when combined result in different configurations of plants and programs, within a limit of up to three floors, either in a flat or sloped terrain. The external and internal coverings, such as floors, walls and linings, are also conceived as part of a docking system. In this way, the residence is entirely assembled in the lot, without generating waste or consuming natural resources such as water - abundantly wasted in conventional construction. Baptized as ‘ecosystemic’, the construction respects nature as much as possible, from conception to delivery of the keys - a period that may correspond to only six months. The sustainable practices are also applied to the daily life of the residents by three important and indispensab… continue

Across this micro-boundary between city and nature, we gave the project two contrasting face: to the park side, it presents a solid concrete facade, akin to a massive rock mountain in nature; to the urban context on the south side, it opens up with full panoramic curtain walls, like a lantern. Not unlike "Despina" in Calvino's "Invisible Cities", the building's two opposite faces answers to the desire of nature and of the city. <b>Sunlight + Facade</b> Most building in this area adhere to the daylight set-back regulations by stepping back each floor as it ascends.

The proposal adopts as premise the climatic conditions and as a reference, the know-how of the northeastern coast's vernacular architecture, and concentrates the whole program into a single linear pavilion of 60 meters in length. Thus, the constructive solutions employed such as the use of wood structure, taubilha tiles and straw lining, remit the local repertoire architectural. Set in a completely flat land, the building designed to the clubhouse, concentrates the entire brief into a single linear pavilion with 60 meters in length.

Tensions between private freedom and prescriptive planning are coupled with exploring the interplay of view and viewing, solid and void, through a multilayered, sensory design response. Our clients’ brief appeared contradictory and unachievable: to create a home where “in crossing the threshold, the past was to be left behind”, and where interconnected yet separate living spaces should be experienced simultaneously. To address these conundrums, we pursued a Janus-like composition, moving the house from traditional façade-driven framework to a contemporary rear form that asserts a new typology, pushing the conservation dialogue in unexpected ways. Investigating the tension between “interconnected yet separate”, we explored a view/viewing framework that leverages the site’s narrowness, steepness and views. Opening up vertical and hor… continue

Made almost solely of wood, the distinct house features an open and warm interior and large windows allowing for a stunning connection to the green exterior surrounding the house. Furnished with solid wood furniture by Stattmann Neue Moebel, the warm and totally calm atmosphere is fuelled, reaching almost a symbioses of house, interior and the environment it is situated in. Atelier ordinaire’s prefabricated passive houses are made almost solely of wood, only the floor in the basement of the house in Beaune is concrete. A complex heating system is rendered unnecessary due to an excellent insulation and the precise positioning of the windows that have been calculated to ensure all rooms are solely warmed by the sun.

The ground level hosts the living area, kitchen and dining room; all environments have a direct relationship with the exterior. The space is strongly defined by the treatment of the horizontal surfaces and by the presence of a sculptural staircase. Custom made glazed lava stone tiles can be arranged to form different geometric compositions. The colors of the tiles are white, cobalt blue, and giallo siena; the volume of the staircase is completely cladded with yellow Valchromat and is located next to a volume that stores technical systems. The second floor hosts the sleeping area featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The paths and porches on the exterior are made of local stone; the pergolas screen the main openings and are made of white painted galvanized iron covered with bamboo.

Located on the Saclay Plateau, a highly dynamic area of the Paris region and home to a major cluster of high technology companies and universities, this conservatory of 2,800 m² is dedicated to teaching music, choreography and the dramatic arts. The Conservatoire à rayonnement départemental d’Orsay was built for the purpose of bringing instruction in the arts to this technology-oriented Paris-Saclay Plateau. The location chosen lies at the edge of a remarkable botanical park, and beside a river, near the city blocks of single family homes of the town of Orsay and a university campus. The project serves as a landmark at the intersection of these different worlds.

As technological advances break the traditional connection between work and workplace, increasingly mobile work opportunities arise. Consequently, today’s “Activity Based Design” needs to focus on providing employees with working environments that offer a fitting atmosphere of support for the task at hand. It is a matter of projecting structures, offering incentives for communication and creating places of encounter. Accounting for these changed demands, our interior design for an international consultancy aims to find the right balance between business prestige and informal quality. For even renowned businesses can not solely rely on high salaries and company cars to attract high-potentials in today’s fiercely competitive market. In response to the changing s… continue

Within the context of a post-industrial city with a strong past in the textile production, The Distillery is a representative example of how a vacant property can become a vibrant location, playing an active role on the urban and economic transformation of the surrounding neighbourhood and life of the city. One of the latest and most impactive structural interventions was carried out at the second and third level of the building, where the central beam system was removed to create a double height hall and two balconies facing the central space. The former is meant for presentations, lectures, and workshops, while the upper balconies are dedicated to designers’ ateliers and offices.

Hangzhou Neobio Family Park von X+Living | Club interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/x-living-hangzhou-neobio-family-park/5106272 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The project occupies the first floor of Hangzhou Star Avenue PhaseⅡ(a shopping mall), adjacent to the river. Before the construction, the developer removed all the entry lux shops at this floor, and permitted the designers to make use of the atrium space. In other words, design of the project integrated all parts of the shopping mall as a whole, and redefined the functions of the entire area of the first floor. Aesthetic concept of the project was derived from the abstraction of scenario modes, which focused on coordinated integration of colors and composition rather than style interpretation. Since the family park is located at the riverside, designers drew inspirations from natural views in the composition of the design. Based on the original layout of the shopping mall, Hangzhou Neobio Family Park was divided into four major functional areas, each with multiple accessory spaces. Such division took into account age groups, interests and behaviors of kids, while at the same ti… continue

Siblings von ARKLAB | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/arklab-siblings/5106271 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The idea was to create sibling houses: two houses that had many properties in common yet still maintained their distinct and individual spatial identities. The same DNA, yet not identical. They share a common construction method. Both have a central concrete wall that was poured on site. Otherwise, the houses have a solid timber frame, including the floor structure, the roof and exterior and interior walls. The construction uses a free geometry in order to meet the need for sheltered outdoor spaces and privacy. The rooms are an extension of this free geometrical approach. Grotto-like. Seemingly spontaneously emerged. The most unique feature is the open quality of the family rooms. It is not possible to overlook the entire room from any single point. The ceiling height varies, and the room branches out in several directions. It was a goal to minimize the finish. To allow the materials to appear with a rough expression. The interiors feature unfinished wood, as is the central concr… continue

The new spaces are in conjunction with the brand’s 10 Year Anniversary, and represent Lieberman’s ultimate vision for A.L.C. Each store is designed to draw from different parts of the brand’s heritage, playing into the designer’s bicoastal roots and world travels - archways, skylights and vintage furniture finds from downtown New York are paired with California-made fixtures in concrete, marble, and travertine while shades of pink, off-green and bordeaux are realized in luxurious velvet materials. Soho represents the brand’s flagship location and is 3,000 square feet in space.

For the gastronomic concept as well as the restaurant name stood the butchery, which was once operated in the historical monument of the century turn. The restaurant developed within a very short time to a culinary hotspot in Stuttgart, which firmly anchored the long neglected Bismarckplatz in the Stuttgart gastronomy scene. <b>Spatial diversity</b> The restaurant is divided into three sections - a main room with a bar and two other smaller, more intimate areas. A well-coordinated range of seating possibilities, from the informal “come together” in the lounge area, which is around a deep wooden seating in the window line oriented to the place, as well as at the leather panel covered bar, which dominates the main room, right up to intimate seating areas with simple benches made of brushed larch wood.

The new Pestalozzi School is located outside of Stuttgart, in the small city of Leonberg, Germany. While Leonberg is known for being the home of Architect Frei Otto, the new school is a contrast to the lightweight structures Otto is famous for. Built partially of massive concrete walls, the school overlooks a valley and is bordered by ordinary, single-family housing units, a community center from the sixties and the brick Pestalozzi School, constructed around 1900. The Pestalozzi School is an elementary school for children with learning disabilities, and was designed to be an environment conducive to a different way of learning. By using the topography of the site, the architects created open and closed spaces which protect the children from the exterior and promote play and social interaction from within.

At bigger trade fairs the courting for the limited absorption capacity of the visitors is just as important. At the internationally renowned trade fair in the construction industry - the BAU 2013 in Munich – the trade fair stand „ready – prepared to build suitably for the elderly“ was introduced. The stand represented a research project which was organized by the Institute Housing and Design at the University of Stuttgart. A major challenge here was, that the stand did not have a concrete product it should provide a platform for, but was rather designed to present an abstract research topic to the visitors. The research project lead by Prof. Dr. Thomas Jocher and Erika Mühlthaler is running under the auspices of the Federal Ministry BMVBS.

The 8.000 square-meter brick structure incorporates a striking historic building from the second half of the Nineteenth century and rejuvenates the urban landscape while elegantly giving expression to the required functionality. Taking its cue from Thomas More’s acclaimed book “Utopia”, first printed by prominent Aalst citizen Dirk Martens, the new building has been slotted into the urban fabric to enhance the characteristic irregular streets and intimate spaces of the city center, and to interact with them. Three new squares have been created alongside Esplanadestraat, Graanmarkt and Peperstraat.
