One needs but minimal protection, such as a chhatri (an overhead canopy), during the day. In the early morning and at night, the best place to be is outdoors, under the sky." - Charles Correa ‘Restroom’ is not just a polished word for toilet, here a Restroom is a public toilet that is unique in terms of both form and function. Beyond the obvious toilet blocks, the Restrooms aim to provide women an exclusive social space, something that is a typical of urban landscape in India. The design of the restroom has been conceptualized around a tree for two reasons. One to express the idea of integrating nature and context in the built form and using its characteristics to protect from climate. Secondly the shade of the tree protects the garden below from the sun allowing filtered light, and then it only needs a transparent cover to protect from rain. This intervention helped to maintain the light qua… continue

Culture and Congress Centre Montforthaus Feldkirch von Hascher Jehle Architektur | Concert halls https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hascher-jehle-architektur-culture-and-congress-centre-montforthaus-feldkirch/5105514 Thu, 14 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The Montforthaus Feldkirch, which opened in January 2015, is a new cultural landmark of the Vorarlberg Region in Austria and serves as a universal public center for the people in the region. Located in the historical town center of Feldkirch, the organically curved architecture of the building detaches itself from the existing small-scale and heterogeneous urban-structure. Like a rock in the river, the new cultural center lies embedded in the urban context of existing squares.   The building provides space for congresses, balls, exhibitions, concerts and stage performances. The restaurant located on top of the building allows the visitors to enjoy scenic views over Feldkirch. The guests will enter the natural stone cladded building from Rössle square. From there they are led into an open four-story foyer area with galleries. An extensive glass-skylight directs the view to the historic Schattenburg. A curved staircase leads to the upper levels where the visitor can proceed towards… continue

Artisan House von Morphogenesis | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/morphogenesis-artisan-house/5105511 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Through the Artisan House project, Morphogenesis looks to revive and re-establish a patronage for traditional Indian artisanal skills. India is symbolized by the diversity of its art and culture, yet with the changing paradigm there is a great need to conserve these symbols that are under a growing threat of neglect. Craft, emergent from skill and handed-down traditions is inherent in Indian culture, and is strongly representative of the global understanding of luxury today- that of the hand-made, bespoke, one that speaks of its provenance. Additionally, luxury in this project is expressed through the dexterity and beauty of spatial configurations, lending the space an experiential quality through the incorporation of craft, material, method and design. The design exploits the terrain on which the project is located, to create two different levels that are instrumental in segregating functions. A large house intended to include a large extended family at times of celebration an… continue

The British School von Morphogenesis | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/morphogenesis-the-british-school/5105510 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Morphogenesis’ design vision for The British School in New Delhi, found inspiration in the school’s tagline- ‘An International education with an Indian soul’. With this project, Morphogenesis set out to provide a strong cultural context to the international format of education this institution provides. Located centrally in Delhi, space itself was a constraint. Its population of 650 students was to be doubled to 1300. The principal challenge was to construct the new building on the existing site without disrupting the existing school that would become redundant eventually. The only constructible space available enveloped the existing premises, presenting construction, phasing and health and safety challenges. A strategic approach to phasing was adopted in the form of Phase I comprising of a perimeter block to transfer and accommodate existing operations. Phase II, being built on the vacated footprint of the old school, houses additional classrooms, laboratories, sports facilities, arts… continue

But Newworks was showing only a few of these versions online. We were asked to expand the online collection by creating photos (via 3D modelling and rendering) of the chairs in all upholstery versions. We digitised a selection of fabrics, such as Kvadrat’s Haakon, Hallingdal and Remix, to a very detailed level, presenting the material structure, softness and detailing in the weave. The result is an ultra photo realistic presentation of the full collection, with zoomed-in photos of the fabric detail. Photos that nearly give the feeling that you can touch the fabric. Photos that sell. Architonic Digital Studio continue

Case Study - Mevaco. How to show metal sheets online von Architonic Digital Studio | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/architonic-digital-studio-case-study-mevaco-how-to-show-metal-sheets-online/5105508 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 MEVACO is Europe's leading supplier of metal facades, perforated sheets, crimped and welded meshes. All together these products compose a very wide collection. Like every modern company, Mevaco wishes to merchandise its collection online in a way that the pictures are self-explaining. This making it easier for their customers to meet a decision and consequently reducing the time- and money-consuming amount of sample requests. The metal sheets are 3-dimensional and produce a different effect, depending on the angle you look at them. And this is precisely what the manufacturer wants to show this to their clients. Architonic Digital Studio received physical samples of the sheets and created the following visual content for each product: 1. An interactive GIF that shows the product, rotating, in an autoplay video in loop 2. A detail shot of the product under 45 degrees to the left 3.

The Woodside Villa von Morphogenesis | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/morphogenesis-the-woodside-villa/5105507 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 ’The Woodside’ is a low-density niche luxury residential mountain villa development comprising of 37 villas built on a 12 acre site in the picturesque environs of Kasauli. Kasauli falls in an interesting topographic and climatic zone where one needs to deal with hilly architecture and with cool winters, yet summers can get as warm as the plains. The organization principle for the development has been formalized keeping in mind the natural swales and ridges of the site. The villas and the internal road networks have been strategically placed in order to minimize the amount of cutting and filling to the natural terrain of that region as well as to retain maximum existing vegetation. Morphogenesis designed each cottage in a two-wing format that is connected at a pin joint, which can swing open or close, depending on how and what the ground would allow one to engage with, at that point. This led to some level of uniformity even though all these houses are different from each other.… continue

Case Study – Création Baumann.

An extended “hospitality concept” is in demand: ranging from a comfortable ambiance to positive personal interaction to great attention details. In this scenary, textiles play an important role as they round off a hotel’s overall concept. Création Baumann launched its new flame-retardant and easy-care “Hospitality” collection and used our service to show its versatility: how to combine the various fabrics with each other in order to open up options for diverse interior effects. Architonic Digital Studio digitised the upholstery variants, decoration and bedding fabrics into ‘Multi-layered-texture-files, so to capture the softness, the gloss and the reflection of the each colour on the surrounding, the fabrics 3D effects and the elegant patterns.

The question was: how to sell the product effectively, showing its function and making the client understanding it at first look. We re-created the product in 3D and made a set of great merchandising images that enable Betec Licht to convey, to their customers, the purpose, and the beauty of this product.

VodafoneZiggo von Evolution Design | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/evolution-design-vodafoneziggo/5105504 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 When you think of a call centre you probably picture a line of people seated in row upon row of desks in a featureless back room. But call centres are changing. In many companies, they are now the first point of contact with customers and are increasingly important in growing new business and ensuring customer satisfaction. High tech and fast paced, with multiple contact points from email and messaging systems to video and voice calls, they also require motivated and well-trained staff. As companies recognise their growing importance, the boiler room approach is disappearing and call centres are beginning to morph into a corporate centrepiece. Dutch telecoms company Ziggo is a case in point. The company merged with Vodafone in 2017 and today offers broadband and mobile services to both residential and commercial customers across the Netherlands. It has a large call centre and like many companies invests significant resources in training call centre employees in both technology and continue

Villeneuve Residence von Atelier Barda | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/atelier-barda-villeneuve-residence/5105503 Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Atelier Barda has converted a building that once housed two apartments above a grocery store into a single-family home, "Résidence Villeneuve". The façade consists of two wood-framed storefront windows on either side of a central door. The plot on which the building stands is located between a southwest-facing side yard (formerly used for unloading and storing merchandise) and a long garage with a shed above. The clients’ original program involved transforming the side yard into a garden—a rare and sought-after asset in this densely populated neighbourhood. The clients also wanted a complete redesign of the commercial space on the ground floor and the first-floor apartment to create a single-family home on two floors, keeping a rental unit on the top floor. A partial floor above the existing garage was built to create an additional living room and a small private deck overlooking the street. The orientation of the façade and side wall offered great potential for openings and li… continue

Pigna von Architetto Claudio Beltrame | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/architetto-claudio-beltrame-pigna/5105501 Tue, 12 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 In the oldest and widest forest of Italy, where the spruce trees are used to construct violins and other musical instruments thanks to the rare quality of the wood, a new addition to a mountain retreat has just opened. The project started from the desire to create a structure that is not only a refuge for man, but also a natural element of its environment, a mimesis of its surrounding. From the tree, for the tree. The concept phase was developed for an architectural competition in 2014, and only a couple of year later it became a concrete project in the Italian Alps nearby Tarvisio (at the border with Austria and Slovenia). The treehouses are two. They are developed on three levels, raising ten meters above the ground. The first of which hoover four meter above the ground and serves as a panoramic covered terrace. The second involves the arrival of the stairs (which continue following the profile of the “pine cone”, acting as a structural cage) that lead to the interior through… continue

It led to a twelve meters deep, second cellar area with approximately 250 square meters. Located between Votivkirche and Sigmund Freud's apartment, this cocktail and underground bar is an aesthetical gem. Historical investigations showed that it was a semi-legal establishment in the 50ies and 60ies in an era of Vienna’s flourishing jazz scene represented by names as Joe Zawinul or Fatty George. So the generic “genius loci ‘did not have to be invented but simply revealed. The circulation and dramaturgy of the cocktail bar starts at an undecorated, narrow entrance door that leads to a first-basement level, containing the wardrobe and a mirrored vestibule to a “floating” stair case, which suggests a touch of “Sunset Boulevard”. This pathway leads directly to the seven-meters main bar. Several alcoves, a hidden booth, the smallest… continue

The scenography of this project was entrusted to Ubalt and Christopher Dessus, architects in Paris. The scenography of this Korean pop-up shop seeks to question the manufacturing process of the object. The project is read through 3 materials of industrial origin expressing 3 instants of the creation. The floor is covered with gravel, the displays are made of reproofed BA13 and the bubble wrap. The very form of the objects created evokes advancement, an evolving space for an ephemeral exhibition: the roller, the staircase, the gravel disseminated throughout the space. In the center of the staircase, extends the opening of the door and the external opening. Its ridges of coating are deliberately left visible. His twi… continue

George Marina von Framework Studio | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/framework-studio-george-marina/5105496 Tue, 12 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Framework Studio designed all restaurants for the George Family in the past and wanted this George to be different from all the others. The location is less ‘city like' while it is near Amstel station and just a few minutes by bike from De Pijp neighbourhood or Oud Zuid. “Marina” is a new venue of the Amsterdam based restaurant group George. All George restaurants have design elements in common, but all of them have their own speciality in Amsterdam. Marina is situated on the banks of the Amstel River and has a beautiful harbour in front which gives to the restaurant and its view a nautic scenery. Marina is a restaurant that is hard to place in a design corner. Its not Scandinavian, but has the clean look and pale wood that Scandinavian restaurants are famous for. It is not industrial, but has all the style elements as flagstone walls, concrete floors, steel facades and lots of plants. It is not a sophisticated restaurant, but has detailed leather couches, brass lighting, rattan… continue

The conscious choice of the playful floor and the large windows within the old walls, are a marked contrast to the strikt diocese architecture. The aim was to tailor a new downtown, fancy dress for the Felzl bakery for which we had already successfully realised 3 bakeries. Contradicting the strikt and calm floor plan of the shop, we folded and turned the ceiling in two axes which gave a dynamic feeling in the whole room. The materials used were stoneware, brass patinized or polished, raw marble and raw oak. Moccaroom Hannes Zieher continue

The updates – all minimalist lines, bold shapes and grand scales – offer modern counterpoints to the original Edwardian architecture. Music threads through the house with clever, custom joinery accommodating oft-used instruments in the music room; and in the television-free living room, his-and-hers’ reading chairs and an oversized Molteni sofa accommodate endless listening sessions around a cherished vinyl record player. The stately scale of the Northcote house is played up with a regal colour palette which turns blue into midnight, indigo, teal and denim – and Monet-inspired lilac, as chosen by the children.

Apartment AMC von rar.studio | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/rar-studio-apartment-amc/5105493 Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The apartment is located in one of the blocks making up Terraços de Bragança: the set of buildings designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira in Lisbon’s Chiado district that completed construction in 2004. Working within the scope of a Siza Vieira project represents a difficultly desirable challenge. The inexorable weight of the inherent responsibility runs in parallel to a sense of pointlessness of intervening within a framework that requires no such work. We thus focused on the needs, desires and expectations of the client. The apartment area was to be maximised. To this end, we eliminated the technical cabinets and their ventilation infrastructures existing throughout the bathrooms, bedrooms, the corridor, the living room and the storage room, which were relocated behind the suspended ceiling. Furthermore the spatial structure was maintained while repositioning only the door accessing the living room and removing the wall that closed off the dining room. The dark wooden floor tiling, i… continue

When I first saw this village, I was fascinate with the view. The view of all those old houses along the slop looked so neat and organized, and also the ridgeline of the mountain and sky looked so clear and beautiful. When I designed this house I made sure to match with surroundings environment. Triky part of this site was the shape. This site’s shape was irregular and there were some steps. Therefore, I divided this house into three volume so the house could fit in the site’s shape without be bigger than other houses. The characteristic roof blends well with roof gradient of the neighbour houses, and also harmonized with the ridigeline of the mountains. The residence of this house can feel the relationship with those old houses, mountains and sky. Daisaku Hanamoto Architect & Associates continue

The shape of the gable draws the outline of the skyline of the town, becoming a cultural and poetic landscape. The design is inspired by the natural landscape formed from the local karst landform. Zheng Xiang Design makes the reflection of mountains in the green and clear water as the central axis of the interior design.

The owners wanted a warm space, fit to host family and friends, in harmony with the environment, a space that breathes fresh air and replenishment. The GRAND PIC cottage offers, through simplicity and sober physicality, a unique experience of symbiosis between nature and architecture. The design of the cottage results from a sensitive reading of the magnificent woods in which it is located. Before even starting to imagine the project, the objective was to let ourselves be guided and inspired by the terrain’s characteristics. This experience of the terrain, from the very start, allowed us to seize all the potential of the different ambiances that were present. These ambiances directed the APPAREIL architecture team’s work. Each move was influenced by a desire to optimise the space’s intrinsic qualities.

The planar graph of the restaurant looks like the letter L, which enables the users to see different views when they change their steps. The whole space can be divided into three kinds of spaces: the outdoor space, the public space and the compartments. Designer uses bamboo chips and plants as the main elements. Before construction, workers planted climbing vines. Therefore, when the case was done, the climbing vines has already covered the filter and cast a green shadow over the restaurant. When the sun shines across the bamboo chips, the filter and the climbing vines, the light and shadow will change randomly according to the variation of time, weather and the trace of walking. Moreover, the murmur of water in the outside pool gives the users mul… continue

The National Museum of Finland stands on the noisy Mannerheimintie but as a calming contrast it’s surrounded by a peaceful garden. The Museum was opened for the public in 1916. A newly reformed brand identity and a service design process gave a clear direction to the concept alongside the historical architecture of the building. The plan was to answer to the needs of serving different groups of people and strengthening the visitor experience. The spaces were designed more welcoming and open for all kinds of museum activities and events. The museum shop is located in the old vaulted Pre-historical exhibition space. Playfully shaped folding screens divide a pop-up exhibition area from the shop itself. A picturesque space with a view towards Töölönlahti can be found on the second floor. The space is… continue

Tunbridge Winter Cabin von New Affiliates | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/new-affiliates-tunbridge-winter-cabin/5105484 Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Tunbridge Winter Cabin is a 1,250-square-foot cabin that contains a painting studio and living quarters on 65 acres in the Green Mountains of Vermont. The structure was designed after a traditional Vermont cabin and is inspired by the area’s strange aggregate structures, in which barns, houses and sheds all grow on and around each other as if clustering for warmth. After the typically informal and loose nature of these vernacular structures, N/A sought to create a design in which regularity is interrupted by slight misalignments and minor asymmetries in the size and placement of architectural details. The plan consists of two identical squares meeting at a corner, with the triangular space at the hinge serving as the entryway. The double-height studio space comprises one square, and is set off-angle from the living area, which is divided into a single-height first floor space and kitchen, and a second-floor master bedroom with high pitched ceiling that opens onto an outdoor deck.… continue

New architectural elements, including exposed steel, raw plywood, and expanded mesh screens, both conceal and reveal areas throughout, creating a series of distinct spaces for living, working and sleeping. The added elements playfully interact with two large existing columns positioned near the edge of the space, which serve as a terminating boundary for the design. Their architectural intervention either keeps an intimate gap that mimics the outline of the column, or hugs it. Inspired by the contrast between minimalist geometries and rough materials these adjacencies of existing and new elements preserve the clean, light, continuous environment and maximize usable space without appearing overly refined. Notable details include hand-selected plywood wi… continue

High House von Delordinaire | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/delordinaire-high-house/5105482 Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 For the ‘High House’, Delordinaire plays with the limit between interior and exterior, inviting people to gather in spaces immersed in nature. Elevated stilt constructions are typically used in warm climates and flood zones. This energy efficient winter chalet uses stilt typology to create a protected ground floor area with an outdoor stove. Providing an unusual space where residents can be amongst nature and the snowy exterior, while still enjoying some protection from the elements. The stilt typology raises the house above the surrounding tree line giving it an uninterrupted view of the Mont Saint Anne from the lounge, as well as a striking overall aesthetic. It also allows sunshine to directly enter the house at all hours of the day. The clean, sharp lines and volumes are achieved through the use of white concrete panel cladding and corrugated steel roof panels. On a cloudy, snowy day, the house blends into the white landscape almost disappearing, and on summers day the minimal… continue

Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor... The Phoenix is the rebirth of an Architects' family retreat destroyed by a forest fire.  Located in central Wyoming on a south facing slope within an aspen and pine forest, the original building was a classic log cabin with a gable roof. The cabin was constructed in the late 70's on a building pad scratched out of the slope within the floor of the forest. In 2013, human-caused fire swept through the southern slopes of Casper Mountain destroying the forest and 36 structures. The architect’s family retreat was lost. In 2016, the Phoenix rose on the site of the former cabin... In response to family patterns of use in the old building, the program for the Phoenix was re-considered. On a site with challenging accessibility, no e… continue

Towards the mountain, the simple volume rests against the bedrock, while to the forest side, it is perched on slender pilotis hidden amongst the trees. The organization of the home's public areas is an enfilade that culminates with an outdoor room, raised at the level of the trees. This layout for common areas fosters family life while providing views to the landscape. Between the screen porch and the interior living room, the architects included a massive board-formed concrete fireplace. It is used for the indoor and outdoor space, as it has openings on both sides. The other portion of the home contains three children's bedrooms that share a bathroom. The corridor leading to them widens in certain areas, providing small nooks for play or reading. The kid's rooms extend onto a landing illuminated by a large skylight, bringing in abundant natural light. The master suite occupi… continue

The rehabilitation of this A-frame reflects the method of the architect who, approaching the essence of his clients’ everyday life, leads them to scrutinize their daily habits as well as their real family needs to surpass their own limitation. With Jean Verville continues his reflections on compact domestic spaces transgressing standardization. Challenging the initial hypothesis of lack of space, the architect opted instead for subtracting floor areas in favor of spatial quality. At the same time compressed and fragmented, stratified and unobstructed, the living area decreases from 950p2 to 690p2 (88 m2 à 64 m2 ) by intensively exploiting the densification of spaces. Of graphic nature, the vocabulary of results in a trigonometric poesy juggling with the emblematic A-frame triangular fi… continue

There are two kinds of people who have rich experiences. One prefers addition, this kind of people have childlike innocence and great attachment to objects. Each of their collection stands for a memory and a mood. The more the collection they have, the more fulfilling and productive life they live. The other one prefers subtraction, with the increase of experience, they become more gentle to people, but stricter to themselves. Knowledge, principles and tastes, all have established stable and clear boundaries through the years. Zhengkai Olive City is designed for the latter. In this project, Qianxun gives unique characters to the space, boldness which is not gaudy, cold elegance , and low-key confidence . It is an ordinary project with extraordinary design.

As a tea house to promote Chinese culture of tea drinking, while being innovative, Taohuayuan seeks to meet demands of modern life. The design utilized a quite Zen esthetic and simple style to bring a tranquil and free space to the bustling city. The building is in a clear outline of single rectangles, tucked away in the forest just like a masterpiece of nature. While marble is strong and steady, the glass is clear and pure, thus the facade harmoniously combines hardness and softness, as well as virtual and real, giving the house a contemporary look. The interior becomes the extension of the architecture; simple materials such as wood, bamboo and marble are used together with concise lines to create Zen tranquility. The overall palette remains simple and soft, incorporating traditional elements like scholar rocks, lanterns, paintings and works of art to create a tranquil environment that is one… continue

In this sense we decided to give a recognizable piece to this disorganized, or better said heterogeneous, area of suburbia without any architectural interest. As Moreno Galván wrote: "Buildings are created with a particular purpose. But architecture is made from a situation, an understanding of things, an image of the world." The scale of the building, as well as the impossibility of purposing spaces of a public character that generated relations between themselves, made us direct our proposal towards the design of a piece with a strong geometric presence, self-absorbed, able to affirm its presence versus the heterogeneous  residential nonsense  of the surroundings. Its strict geometry, meant in terms of clear organization, serves for designing precise and pure bod… continue

Settling in a rural area without aesthetic qualities, the project aims to inspire the beauty and encourage this industrial area to change by hosting more projects sensitive to design. The two separate volumes reflect the architectural program that separates the workspaces from the common areas. The first building with a double sloped roof has 50 offices on two floors. For employees who spend a lot of their time on the phone, sound insulation was primary to provide a pleasant and productive work environment. The majority of offices are enclosed to meet this need. The choice to make the cathedral ceiling apparent, made possible by an external insulation of the roof, allows the space to breathe in height and gives the impression of small volumes of work to float. This impression of weightlessness is accentuated by a natural and uncluttered interior design: white walls, grey concrete continue

Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (MBDS), the hotel is poised to become the destination for New Yorkers and its visitors in Lower Manhattan’s vibrant neighbourhood. The rich architectural story of the 1881 Temple Court guided the design of the hotel. From its distinctive Queen Anne exterior, to the Bretonian beauty of the dilapidated Victorian interior found inside, The Beekman has such provenance. Building on from the historic roots, The Studio created a new story and dialogue through the use of exquisite materials, rich tones and a plethora of curiosities, continuing The Beekman’s legacy as one of New York’s last architectural treasures.

Their decision to build a new beach house on the North Folk represented a new beginning. Hurricane Sandy had taught the couple to be brave in the face of adversity and to place less value on material possessions. With these important lessons in mind and broad instructions for a "modern, sleek beach house", a residence with interlocking interior and exterior space was designed that seamlessly connected to the landscape. At roughly 2500 square feet, the home has an astounding 4 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a home office, double height living room, kitchen and dining area, including a 32 feet wide sliding glass door opening and small swimming pool. The extremely tight building size, siting restraints from local zoning and state coastal codes were the design team’s greatest challenges but also informed the design principles for the house.

In Flux there are many ways of lounging: from an intimate pillow bay to a collective audience bench. Flux is a fun and experimental community to network and explore business ideas. It’s a fresh example of a new type of work environment in Helsinki. KOKO3 continue

Fjord Helsinki Studio von Studio Joanna Laajisto | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-joanna-laajisto-fjord-helsinki-studio/5105459 Fri, 01 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 When Fjord, one of the world’s leading design and innovation consultancies, grew out of its Helsinki premises, it needed a new space that would reflect the Fjord brand and feel like home to its employees from around the world. Having worked with the Helsinki-based Studio Joanna Laajisto before, Fjord knew that they had found a designer who could translate Fjord brand characteristics into interior design principles. “Elegant, unconventional and human – those were the starting points of our design process. This is an office primarily made for employees to feel at home, and the wow factor for outsiders comes from what the space feels like, not merely from its looks,” says designer Joanna Laajisto who designed Fjord’s minimal and warm studio in central Helsinki. <b>From Finland, naturally</b> The 1000 m2 studio was furnished with natural materials of high quality: oak floors with sound-absorbing underlay, sisal carpets, and loads of plants. Light flows through the studio’s delicate… continue

Sir Zelman Cowen Centre von Cox Architects | Universities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/cox-architects-sir-zelman-cowen-centre/5105458 Fri, 01 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 ‘Engaging curious minds’ is the Scotch College Science motto, thinking which became intrinsic to the design of the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre for Science for year 7-12 students. Shortlisted at the 2017 World Architecture Festival, the SZCCS includes 21 general science and specialist laboratories, student-lead research spaces, prep rooms, staff facilities, collaborative areas and an auditorium. The architecture supports the pedagogical program of Scotch College: integration of theoretical and practical learning which includes group, independent and tutor-supported learning. The building is a contemporary but sympathetic addition to the Campus. It comprises sandstone-clad pods floating on a limestone plinth and linked by glazed facades. Vertical stone louvres incorporate a sine-curve and a central void introduces light into the floor plate. The design brief was a building that would last 100 years. It's hoped that the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre for Science will prepare students for a li… continue

BEI Function Space von Neri & Hu Design and Research Office | Trade fair & exhibition buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/neri-amp-hu-design-and-research-office-bei-function-space/5105457 Fri, 01 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Neri&Hu rehauls Opposite House’s BEI restaurant into “BEI Space” a multipurpose function room serving the increasing demand for meeting and event spaces in Beijing. While the typical function room in a hotel tends to be situated in dark enclosures with no natural light, the given site actually has an existing skylight. To fully utilize this asset, the design challenge becomes how to bring in as much light as possible to the space and how to subdue any sense of being underground. The resulting design concept, first, creates a landscape zone that is bathed in light, and second, inserts within it a luminous glass box. The terrazzo landscape starts from the elevated skylight along the existing southern edge of the site. The extent of the terrazzo landscape is articulated through a series of vertical terrazzo stratum, seemingly carved and sliced with precision to define this enveloping corridor. Guided by the direction of daylight, the terrazzo stratum runs in a uniform direction towards… continue

Designed by Danish COBE Architects and Dutch architects MVRDV and located in Roskilde, Denmark, the museum focuses on the development of youth culture in the 20th and 21st century. Upon opening in April 2016, the museum used the GRID system as display units, podiums, wardrobe lockers and seating systems. Minimalism and flexibility are key characteristics of GRID. The design is industrial, yet with an elegant look. The GRID system can be designed into diverse configurations and can be customised for specific purposes. Users can also take GRID configurations apart and redesign them into new installations, making GRID a flexible and eco-conscious system. Mobility is another key characteristic of the modular GRID system. A selection of the GRID units at RAGNAROCK’s install… continue

A3 - Advanced Architecture Apartments von Starh | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/starh-a3-advanced-architecture-apartments/5105455 Thu, 30 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 A3— Advanced Architecture Apartments are harmoniously incorporated into the context of their environment. Two starting points—the mountain and the city, set the overall architectural concept. The plot reserved for A3 is in the border area, where the city and the mountain overflow into one. Lines and clear borders are blurred in smooth and soft forms, allowing everyone to determine exactly where and how to perceive shape and space. Situated in one of the most contemporary areas of Sofia—Bulgaria Blvd., A3 is designed to be relevant, contextual and avant-garde. Some of the most modern and interesting buildings in Sofia are exactly here. On the other hand, a very dominant element of the environment is the mountain, peeking in the future building. The combination of these two powerful components results in a dynamic and modern shape of the building, without harming the function. It is divided into five volumes, linked in a common ensemble that defines its final shape. Each of the volume… continue

Fiore Di Pietra von Mario Botta | Restaurants https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mario-botta-fiore-di-pietra/5105454 Thu, 30 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The new restaurant on the top of Monte Generoso graces the spot where an early twentiethcentury hotel once stood. The location is extraordinary: a small plateau overlooking the precipice on the north side of the mountain, characterised by a mighty rock with a steep 300-400 metre drop. The impressive rock formation was the deciding factor for creating the “stone flower” – an octagonal building with individual “petals”. On the east front this circular crown provides the space for an observation deck that follows the ridge of the mountain. The arrangement of the individual components (or “petals”) creates a group of five-storey towers that project out slightly, to close again on the upper floors. On the level of the rack railway station (ground level), a spacious entrance area with an entryway connects the exterior with the interior. The exhibition room, which can be accessed via the entryway, is home to information boards with the history of Monte Generoso and a model of the current b… continue

Lorette Convent von dmvA | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/dmva-lorette-convent/5105453 Thu, 30 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 By provoking action and reaction between past and present through the application of contemporary architecture, the remodeling of this entire block of buildings—including landmark buildings such as Hooghuys and the former Lorette convent—adheres to this evolutionary principle. The new development, Melano, is located between Hooghuys and Sweert. This apartment building deliberately leans towards Sweert and distances from Hooghuys, with a specific tension created by the cantilever on the first floor. The white brick architecture is a response to the partly lime-washed, partly plastered facade of Hooghuys and the classic uniform gables of Sweert. Covered terraces create a dialogue with the two-dimensionality of the historic facades on Drabstraat. In turn, integrated vertical lighting strips not only draw attention to the contemporary facade and, therefore, celebrate modern life, they also light the street and thereby dispense a contemporary idea of interaction with the public space.… continue

At the edge of a large natural reserve and in between the trees Villa Bakkum was built. Villa Bakkum a minimalistic house with 3 wings that emerge in the surrounding nature. <b>Chalets</b> In 2010 the municipality decided to redevelop the former site of a psychiatric hospital into an area with housing designed in chalet style. Villa Bakkum is part of this development. The facades on the forest side were therefor designed in bamboo wood. On the other facades brick was applied in an extremely strong horizontal relief. This gives the building a strong texture and a highly tactile effect. <b>Three wings</b> The plan of the villa has three wings with the entrance and staircase in the central triangular space. Each wing has its own use; a living wing, a wing with an office space and a wing with the kitchen, dining room and garage.

In March 2017 IDF Habitat proudly announced its new address, 15 km from the heart of Paris. Designed by Piuarch, Stefano Sbarbati and Incet Ingénierie, the winners of a competition held in 2013, the Champigny-sur-Marne headquarters were inspired by the desire to create an efficient, functional complex, and above all one that stands as an indispensable element in the area’s transformation process.

The building site is practically flat on its north half, and presents a pronounced slope on the south half. The building site's slope develops itself in a north-south direction with a total drop of approximately 4 meters. The views to the west from the high part of the site are splendid. The project consists on a multi-purpose building destined to be a Cultural Centre and a Music  School (a discipline that counts with a big number of students in Meco) with four levels corresponding to a basement floor, a semi basement, a ground level floor and a first floor, the latter in the northern centerline of the building.

Engel House von CMC Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/cmc-architects-engel-house/5105449 Tue, 28 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Location In a small community in the Western region of the Czech Republic, not far from the spa town of Karlovy Vary, this villa was designed as a recreational house for an accomplished man, his family and friends. The architect’s intention was essentially to assimilate the romantic context of this small village, posited just under the massive cliffs and ruins of a Gothic castle, where the town originated. Andelska Hora (originally in German Engelsburg), belongs to a protected area of the country, and sits above 600 meters in altitude. The local climate, as one could expect, has dramatic extremes. The concept of this villa evolved from traditional forms of Czech village living typologies, which include ‘saddle’ or A-frame roofs made from wood timber construction. The design brief was of course for a completely modern recreational villa, for both summer and winter seasons. The land plot is 2 163m2 and has ideal South orientation, approached from the North, with fabulous views o… continue

The ground floor has a huge open space with living and dining rooms, a home office, a home theater and the kitchen. Large sliding doors make it possible to hide or completely open the home theater and the kitchen to the living room. A separate building houses a space for entertainment and parties. The second floor has four en-suite bedrooms. The design uses two huge concrete walls on the sides to block the neighbors’ views to the house, granting privacy – same strategy used with for locating the entertainment space in the back of the site. The southern façade has double height glass windows, allowing the entire living room to enjoy beautiful views of Lake Guaíba. The northern façade has shadings and cantilevers that allow the control of direct sunlight – reason why all four bedrooms face the north. In the roof, a steel grid extends ab… continue

It was planned within a strict parameter of the City planning commission. The main facade in dark wood provides an insight into a large music room and a generous circulation space. This is the public street facade. The steel and wood staircase divides all floors in two different areas. Walkin through the house means perceiving the landscape on both sides, and it means walking through spaces with very different qualities. The main floor with bedrooms is doubled in size by a patio with swimming pool. This is the intimate side of the building, and a wonderful Zen like space. The living floor is set on a terrace, and has stunning views over the city of Chur. Built in wood, it has a warm atmosphere, and the large windows generate a penthouse feeling.

EC Pavilion von Mesura | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mesura-ec-pavilion/5105444 Mon, 27 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 In Can Esclapez, located in the countryside of Elche, any excuse is a good reason to celebrate anything. They know how to enjoy one of the most traditional and simple pleasures in the world: eat and taste the most delicious Mediterranean meal in the best environment, the family. The family has grown up and inner spaces are quite limited. The number of grandchildren increase and the garden gets packed. In addition to this fact which is undeniable, it’s the bad understanding of the traditional architecture, which rejects flexible spaces, and it’s characterized by spaces which have no relationship between inner and outer spaces, in other words, which are conceived as separated interior or exterior areas. Consequently, current celebrations in the countryside from Elche can only take place with good weather in those wide shadowy spaces, because inner areas are scarcely ever flexible and have no contact with the garden.

Our studio was commissioned for the project’s interiors and branding, inspired by traditional Chinese iconography. Our concept for the project took design cues from the elegant work of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, exploring the relationship between humanity, nature and design. The result is an interior that is warm, cosy and intimate, filled with the intriguing play of light that filters through the slatted exterior. Our branding for the restaurant focused on the Chinese symbol for ‘fire’ – commonly used in Korean culture, this character has been cut into the external battening, recalling Korea’s fine craft traditions. The lightweight timber structure of the exterior sets the scene for the restaurant’s refined interior. The space is structured by two banks of timber tab… continue

It forms part of the Faculty of Architecture and Sustainable Design. Winning the competition in January 2011, CRAB was awarded the contract and the building was completed in 2013. Peter Cook’s and Gavin Robotham’s long experience as teachers of architecture and their regular working knowledge of several including the Bartlett, AA, Harvard, SCI-ARC, Columbia, Frankfurt and UCLA enabled them to incorporate a response to many anecdotal criteria as well as constructional and climatic objectives. The building is a long, airy loft on two to three levels articulated by a series of ‘scoops’: defining structure-enclosures that can be used for casual meetings and ‘crit’ sessions. These line the central street that gently rises up the hilltop site.

They fold out to form a series of roof decks, they zig in and out to create ‘sunshine corners’ and are occasionally eaten out to create balconies for smokers or others who are needing a break. There are routes under that run from the University courtyard to the Prater Park on the south - diving through the red base.  The building is designed around Cook and Robotham’s strongly held belief (based on many years as University teachers) that a lively and successful college building should have generous and engaging internal spaces that are not just seminar rooms or offices, but places to ‘hang out’ and possibly encourage you to stay around after class: so these are carved out of the interior and slither around in a similar way to the building as a whole.  Draped over the exterior is a layer of natural timber… continue

In 2014 Bartholomew invited Cook to design this building, which is dedicated to that pursuit. Cook’s office CRAB (the Cook-Robotham Architecture Bureau) with Jenna Al-Ali as Project Architect have then developed an instrument that is to be used by the students of all of its 17 departments. These range from painting, sculpture and Illustration, through to architecture, costume, drama, and model-making with the result becoming the first such dedicated Drawing Studio as a stand-alone structure to be built in a British art college for more than 100 years.

Originally conceived to serve the purpose of a single family residence, the building was converted into four distinct apartments earlier this century. Apartment Palatina I occupies the main frst floor of this mansion, the former location of the social areas – hall, offce, billiards room, small living room, drawing room, pantry, dining hall, greenhouse – and correspondingly draws upon the magnifcent ostentatiousness of both its amplitude and its materials and decorative details. The client sought to modernise the apartment and reinforce its domestic dimension so as to render it more habitable all the while conserving its spatial structure and the fnishing materials through restricted and occasional operations. The challenge resulted in an acupunctural intervention. The greenhouse got converted into an ext… continue

The new design of the space does not correspond to a simple aesthetic desire or example of modernity, but has been conceived and designed specifically to meet the ways of contact and learning that the new teaching mode of the School of Management of the UPF required. This new teaching model, started by the School of Management is based on learning challenges, projects and mentors, and adaptable to the needs of each student. It is a model where the student is the main character, and by active involvement and practical learning, they improve the performance and learning capability. To help this process, the spaces had to match some design principles: Comfort: spaces had to create a physical and men… continue

Dafne Schippersbridge and OBS Oog in Al von NEXT architects | Bridges https://www.architonic.com/en/project/next-architects-dafne-schippersbridge-and-obs-oog-in-al/5105428 Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The bridge is a winning design by NEXT architects and Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau in collaboration with Arup and Bureau B+B commissioned by the City of Utrecht. What makes this bridge so special is the inventiveness: the structure integrates a cycle and pedestrian bridge with a school and a public garden, forming one single cohesive design. The double land use with maximum space for greenery makes the Dafne Schippers bridge unique, not just as a bridge but also as a destination. <b>A Cohesive Design</b> When cyclists make their way from the centre of Utrecht via the district of Oog in Al to the new district of Leidsche Rijn, a long bend takes them upwards through the Victor Hugo park, passing the roof garden on the roof of a school. "In one fluid movement, the cycle route, park, and school are brought together to form a cohesive whole of infrastructure, architecture, and landscape," tells Marijn Schenk, NEXT architects. <b>Connections With The Environment</b> With 110 metr… continue

At the north side the abutment functions as a winter stay. The deck and the brick balustrade accommodate stays for bats during the summer. The bridge design is intended to constitute the ideal habitat for various species of bats, aiming to grow a large colony. “A textbook example of how a functional object can at the same time serve nature,” says bat-expert Marcel Schillemans from the Mammal Society. The project is located along a flight route of several bat species. To optimize the suitability of the bridge for bats, the structure is made out of concrete. The mass of the concrete provides a stable and pleasant climate. The underside of the bridge is provided with entrance slots. The openings have a rough finish for grip. The slots are part of a pattern of grooves in the concrete arch. Clever use is made of the structural space in the cross section to implement the roosts. Crossing the Vlotwateri… continue

Citadelbridge von NEXT architects | Bridges https://www.architonic.com/en/project/next-architects-citadelbridge/5105426 Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The residents in the river region were confronted anxious times in 1993 and 1995. The water levels were extremely high and the dikes just managed to hold. A quarter of a million people had to be evacuated. Extremely high river discharges will occur more frequently in the future and for this reason it was decided to ensure that the rivers could discharge the forecast greater volumes of water without flooding. In response, a Nationwide project has started, the Dutch Room for the River Program. The goal of the program is to give the river more room to be able to manage higher water levels. At more than 30 locations, measures will be taken that give the river space to flood safely. Moreover, the measures will be designed in such a way that they improve the quality of the immediate surroundings.  The Citadel Bridge in Nijmegen is part of Room for the Waal River as part of the national program . By creating a bypass for the river, the Waal, a new island, Veur-Lent, emerges. With a length… continue

The house was built with exposed materials in their raw state: polished concrete floors, an exposed galvanised steel structure forming the basic axis of the house, corrugated sheet metal covered with concrete for the ceiling and a concrete screed as the final wall finish. The entire exterior of the house is clad with pre-rusted sheet metal (CorTen). The landscaping of the garden forms an integral part of the project, and therefore, after being originally shunned by the public, the house naturally blends into the neighbouring line of homes. Thanks to the mature trees planted around the house, it has become virtually invisible. After living in the house for 12 years, the owner decided to renovate the interior and to ‘soften’ the original ‘rawness’ on the main floor of the living… continue

In the past decade, porcelain artists were attracted here to build their own studios. Thus a nascent, dynamic, porcelain-centric hub is thriving and magnetizing even more talents to migrate here what comes along is their great passions and dreams in inheriting the tradition of porcelain art. Most of the industries here are porcelain related, causing a highly competitive environment where it will take great ingenuity and endless efforts to be the best.   Porcelain and the Maker There are artists, art, and places to exhibit art in Sanbao Village.

This white two storey building, with its horizontal line of windows, may look quite modest when viewed from outside, but is very dramatic inside where its shape can be fully appreciated. Here, its roundness determines the school's visual identity with laboratories, workshops and classrooms ranged around the perimeter while the central section provides a communal space with leisure areas. From the centre, there is an amazing view up through the open floors because the stairways have been offset to maximise the visual effect of the tower's volume. At the top, there is access to a roof terrace which can also be used for outdoor teaching. The ceilings play a key role in the design experience, having been lined with 1,150 sqm of white painted Troldtekt acoustic panels.

Here, everyone is welcome. The restaurant is equally suited for business meetings and romantic meals à deux; what matters in both cases is the love and respect for good food.

Based on the requirements of a moveable exhibition we chose flame-retardant modular materials with high robustness and low weight. In addition, ecological properties such as purity of variety were taken into account in order to meet the theme of the exhibition "energy. transitions". What makes the material application special? The translucent optics, combined with a special light scattering and the possibility of double-sided imprint, offered the opportunity for a new design application. The excellent stiffness of the AIR-board® allows loads to be applied and the placement of "floating" exhibits. What particular qualities do the materials have? Together with light and colour, optical depths are created. The honeycomb structure of the AIR-board accentuates the backlit print and achieves attractive colour gradients. Information graphics playfully embedded in the front side complete the scenographic image. architect: SPACE4 GmbH continue

Together we have decided to work on an interior project, where the artists can express themselves and deliver their art, their "message". I therefore created a scripture that only the owner can understand the meaning, the "hidden" message. Inspired by the cuneiform scripture, each furniture blends natural, raw and precious materials, allowing me to play on the visual and functional aspect. The main element of this natural oak, metal and brass furniture family, is a library of 3.60 meter high and 3 meters large which stands in the heart of the main room along a black wall. A ladder, a staircase giving access to the mezzanine, a door between mural fresco and bas-relief, and a radiator cover playing with the full and empty, complete the collection.

Paasitorni’s entrance hall was completed originally in 1925 and it’ss one of the most impressive interiors of the 19th century Classicism in Helsinki. The starting point for the design was to do a facelift by making a welcoming and recognizable spatial identity for Paasitorni’s lobby and Siltasaari hall. The entrance hall was designed to be an elegant and fresh entrance – like a traffic knot in the center of Paasitorni. The renewed sitting area identifies now as a cozy oasis in between the great colonnades. Also lighting plays a great role in the space - new modern lighting solution brings all original colors to life and emphasize the superb features of the architecture. Siltasaari hall is placed side-by-side to the lobby and now works as a sophisticated multi-use space, where events and lectures for 200 people as well as evening dinners and cocktail parties can be held.

Our brief was to rethink and rearticulate the flow of the whole home with its more substantial ground floor level and a renewed lower ground floor level music room and cellar cut into the incline of the steep site. Intent on simplifying the interior scheme and opening up sight lines to the exterior, all excess partitioning has been stripped back, the roof punctuated with deep skylight wells. Large glazed sliding doors allow the home to seamlessly segue onto the revitalised deck, looking out to the view and the subtropical garden surrounds.   By simplifying the dwelling, the humble embellishments of this Walter Burley Griffin-inspired structure began to take on real grandeur: the hipped and tiled roof, the gentle sandstone arches, and the manner in which the house nestles into its surrounds.

The province has approximately 300,000 inhabitants. The new hospital stems from the conceptualization of a large container decomposed through a sequential insertion of courtyards, the separation of circuits (technical-patients) and differentiated entrances: general, emergency, morgue, dialysis and supplies.
