The new volume extends an existing school building up the slope of the passageway that leads onto the site, and settles itself onto the playground’s sloping surface. The building is accessed from the street by passing through a porte-cochère that opens onto a passageway. From here the southernmost end of the building can be seen in all its verticality. This stretched volume signals the presence of the dance centre. The building’s pale facade of hand-made brick fits well with the creams and beiges of the neighbouring buildings. Rather than breaking with the context, the building fits into the existing stone-coloured environment, at the same time underlining its own presence with its eye-catching volumes and natural materials. Surrounding homes look over the steeply pitched roofscape with its glazed white tiles, a dancing sculpture of changing colours as sunlight plays across the undulating dance studio roofs.… continue

Seashore Library von Vector Architects | Administration buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/vector-architects-seashore-library/5104732 Thu, 25 May 2017 00:00:00 +0200 About three hours drive from Beijing, the library is located inside a vacation compound along Bohai Bay. While Beijing has been experiencing the massive growth in economy and city development, many have pointed out the issue of drop in living environment. The vacation compound aims to create a quality-living area closer to the nature. There are a series of cultural and leisure facilities within the compound, and Seashore Library is one of them. The design key point is focused on exploring the co-existing relationship of the space boundary, the movement of human body, the shifting light ambience, the air ventilating through and the ocean view. The library faces the ocean to its east. During seasons of spring, summer and fall, it not only serves the community residents at west, but opens to the public as well. The design began with section. The library houses a reading area, a meditation space, activity room, a drinking bar and a resting area. According to each space, we establish di… continue

Defoe Road von Paper House Project | Semi-detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/paper-house-project-defoe-road/5104731 Thu, 25 May 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A once-forgotten derelict warehouse has been transformed into a unique, doubleheight two-bedroom house by the owner/architect who wanted to bring life back to this forgotten structure. Tucked away behind one of Hackney, London’s busiest high streets, the former school-house was discovered by architect James Davies of Paper House Project, who decided to restore and convert the building as a personal project. Although a big financial risk for the young architect, Davies saw the potential in the derelict property and wanted to create a light-filled space he could enjoy that represented everything about why he went into architecture. This was no ordinary refurbishment and conversion project due to its proximity within a residential courtyard. After extensive residential re-developments in the surrounding area, the ‘Defoe Road’ property had been landlocked inside a courtyard, difficult to access and in need of a full refurbishment. Davies negotiated the purchase price, right of way and s… continue

Employing traditional high-end stone marquetry and stained glass window techniques, the designer is imbuing the space with his eccentric spirit and artistry to create a fantasy world made of different colours, forms and shapes. continue

Today, the listed Michaelsberg Abbey near Siegburg now serves as a modern conference centre. Vale! Farewell – this was the well-meant wish of the designing architects from msm meyer schmitz-morkramer for the harmonious ensemble of old and new – from the cloisters to the individually dyed carpet by Carpet Concept.

On the seafront in the stunning Larvotto area of Monaco, are 2 apartments that young, talented interior designers Humbert & Poyet have transformed to create a unique space. The duo had the privileged opportunity to work with an unusually large space in such an expensive area and they grabbed this with both hands. By reflecting our vision of the Riviera lifestyle, the aim of the project is to be timeless while exuding discreet luxury. The building is straight out of the 70s, with a ceramic mosaic façade, it is the perfect link to an interior inspired by the iconic images of Monaco, Palm Beach and Palm Springs by Slim Aarons. Inspired by the blending of French and Italian style that takes place on the Riviera, Humbert & Poyet wanted a mix of legendary French pieces from the 50s along with vintage Italian furniture. The design is one of measured sobriety, punctuated with touches of bright colour, printed wallpapers influenced by plants and… continue

The centre’s interior has been curated by CPH:DOX’s creative collective, consisting of Maria Bruun, Anne Dorthe Vester and Mattia Maso, in collaboration with Normann Copenhagen's designers, Hans Hornemann and Britt Bonnesen. The thoughtfully considered scenography reflects the visual identity of CPH:DOX, which revolves around being different and standing out from the crowd.  Therefore, a theme of human differences runs through the furnishings, visualised through interiors in a range of skin hues. Designer Hans Hornemann tells us: “We have attempted to create changeable spaces that the visitors can occupy and transform according to their needs. The social function of the furnishings has been present in all aspects of our approach - and it unfold… continue

In the short time it was on the market, we revisited the project and got some current images of the house, interior fitout and developed landscaping. Set on 100 acres in coastal Victoria, this site was bare of vegetation except for a 100-year-old row of Cypress trees. The design was based around a series of sunken walled courtyards to create immediately useable outdoor areas in the windswept environment. Visitors are lead into a large landscaped amphitheatre with a porte-cochere leading to stone stairs up to the entry situated within the first walled courtyard. The building is positioned with its back to the driveway so its complexities are revealed gradually as one is lead through the structure. The main sleeping area with library is separated from the main structure via man made waterscape between the buildings accessed by a suspe… continue

After the building refurbishment in 2016, Dear Design Studio won the competition for the building's interior design, and also proposed the corporate identity and signage design, to give the project greater coherence. The challenge was to adapt the facilities of the former greyhound stadium to its new function as a flexible and dynamic space for startups and technology companies in the creative and cultural industries. At the same time, Dear Design proposed to stimulate the neighbourhood by including technological interventions that reflect the processes developed in the building. The interior design project seeks to develop the flexibility and dynamism of the different spaces, preserving traces of the building's history. The central idea is to respect and honour Bon… continue

Guna house von Pezo von Ellrichshausen | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/pezo-von-ellrichshausen-guna-house/5104718 Mon, 22 May 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Hemmed in between a steeply sloping hillside and a wood of eucalyptus trees, the narrow plot of land compels one to cross the garden to arrive, descending, at the small bay of a lagoon. Overlooking the landscape, a monolithic prism of concrete attempts to articulate the contradictions of the topography with a square top floor measuring 20m on each side balanced on top of a compact bottom floor measuring 8.5m on each side. The upper floor contains a central patio with the same size as the bottom floor, therefore all the suspended rooms are exposed to the outside by the four sides of their section. This upper floor, a dogmatic piano nobile that compensates for the inconvenience of the diagonally set natural terrain slope, is based on a grid of four modules per side. The middle rooms on each side face the central patio, while those at the corners are articulated by circulations that occupy a subsidiary module. Overhead apertures in the centre of each enclosed space and at the ends… continue

Nanan von Buck Studio | Café interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/buck-studio-nanan/5104717 Mon, 22 May 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Nanan means sweetmeats in French and sweets play the leading role in this signature design of a modern patisserie. The deliberately minimalist interior provides a subtle setting for the protagonists: finely decorated sophisticated cakes and éclairs made with meticulous care. The speciality of this patisserie, the éclair, has inspired the interior design and the visual identity of Nanan. The cake’s oval shape is echoed in the central island counter with display that operates almost like a glass cabinet in a jeweller’s shop. Its positioning provides room for the flow of customers who can choose and admire trays of tempting bijou sweets and small works of the art of confectionary. Eclairs have also inspired the bespoke design of lamps and other details of the interior such as mirrors, door handles, coat hangers and veneer perforation. An éclair motif has naturally lent itself to the patisserie’s visual identification. The whole place is given a context of soI, velvet, pink walls wi… continue

And who else would incorporate an accident, with someone knocking over one of his vases, in the decoration of a new vase? Jaime Hayon is the Spanish top designer who created the Info Center in 2010. In 2015, he developed a total package containing the versatile studio and the discovery space as well as room for creativity, curiosity and the electronic quest for information about the collection and the building. The discovery space is bursting with cabinets and drawers to browse through. You can even work with artefacts yourself. Touch a real work of art, for instance, playing ‘Prohibited NOT to Touch’; play ‘Flexible like an Artist’ and make your own work of art, or play ‘Style Stacking‘ to discover all kinds of stylistic differences between painters. The design of the studio features referrals to the jungle. You will recognize mask-like motifs and a large work bench that looks like a snake. This is… continue

Contemporary items coexist in the space with classic mid-century Danish design pieces in a natural way.

Nano pad von Architect Prineas | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/architect-prineas-nano-pad/5104714 Mon, 22 May 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Through this project, we sought to challenge traditional conventions of short stay accommodation while harnessing the growing potential of Sydney's sharing economy. Central to the brief was the provision of additional amenity than that usually found in boutique accommodation. The design is largely conceived around a contemporary plywood insertion that sits within the existing fabric of the apartment. The inserted bed platform allows the original Art Deco structure to be maintained while also creating generous storage beneath. The use of lime-washed plywood is punctuated by black steel details with curved edges that act as contemporary iterations of the Deco style. The existing apartment was compromised by: - limited floor area - poor planning with a comparatively over-sized and under-utilised entry - kitchen positioned along the apartment's only fenestrated wall - lack of definition of sleeping and living spaces A new level change created by the bed platform and joi… continue

Our aim was to integrate the latest technology into it without making this visible. The center would retain a homey  feel to it and would be functional as well as flexible. The table with niches allows for privacy and concentration and it also provides plenty of traditional table surface for any other use.

A few of the custom furniture elements include the multitable, the magazine stands, the mirrors and vases as well as many other features.

The decidedly modern architecture, with its use of square volumes and precise lines, lends itself to lighting and shadow effects that highlight the geometric and clean design of the entire project, while never neglecting the housing needs and comfort that any lighting project must absolutely take into account in order to provide lighting that is, above all else, functional. Versatile and functional lighting, at the service of the architecture Several types of products were used in this project, for different types of installations and purposes: thanks to the breadth of choice offered by our product range, we were able to satisfy the needs of the designer for both indoor and outdoor situations.

It was built by order of Vespasiano Gonzaga in 1578 and was already consecrated by 1582. However, it assumed its present appearance between 1769 and 1772, based on a plan by Ferdinando Galli Bibiena. Its interior boasts numerous artworks including valuable pieces by important artists and craftsmen of the time. Functional and beautiful lighting The refined architecture and decoration is the first thing one notices upon entering the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. A correct lighting project involves taking into consideration the artistic and historical details and also the functioning of the various spaces which, if properly illuminated, can create very suggestive scenes and at the same time highlight the moments devoted to worship. The combination of indirect and accent lighting creates spatial depth and leads the eye to the contemplation… continue

The result is an architectural operation that brings back the courtyard as a generator of the program, as it activates the building by creating a direct relationship with its urban context. Apart from enhancing the flow of air and light, the courtyard creates a direct relationship between the living space contained in the dynamic volumes and an urban vestibule in the front part of the building. This flexible urban living room acts as a transition zone from the private rooms to the street, while serving as a semi-public space to be used by both the inhabitants of the house and the neighbors of the community. The main body of the project was on-site cast by the concrete mixed with Chinese ink, including mini living spaces with a shared courtyard, which is a public area with two trees faced b… continue

The challenge: how to retain an open plan arrangement whilst creating defined spaces and adding a second bedroom. By opening up the enclosed stairwell and incorporating the vertical circulation into the central atrium, we were able to add space, light and volume to the main living areas. Glazing is used throughout to bring natural light deeper into the floor plan, with obscured glass panels creating privacy for the fully refurbished bathrooms and bedrooms. The glazed atrium visually connects both floors whilst separating public and private spaces.

The concept stems from a controversial duality imposed by the clients need for complete privacy as well as the desire for distinguishing the house into an iconic building from within the neighborhood. The buildings’ structure is composed of reinforced concrete formed similarly to a folded origami, and the structure rotates around itself creating a central courtyard from which all the spaces in the house are turned towards. The openings overlooking the street rarely occur, however when they appear they are inclined to prevent views and excessive sun light into the interior. With relatively smaller spaces than the local standards, the design intent is to give maximum functional flexibility, by introducing multiple routes to enable continuous communication between different rooms without interruptions. Similar to traditional Muslim architecture, the use of corridors is avoided… continue

This objective, coupled with the building’s location — on the Niagara Escarpment, a rocky ridge overlooking Lake Ontario — established the impetus for the building’s design. The multi-use facility, which includes a library as well as a heritage society archive, police and municipal community service outlets, and a seniors' recreation centre, unites various demographics in a single building. Throughout, RDHA adapted standard, warrantied systems and materials, allowing for experimentation and tailored architecture, while keeping the budget reasonable and removing the risk from the client. Even the most standard elements such as strip lights were treated with a degree of care that adds elegance.

The installation highlights the common cultural and architectural heritage shared between the arsenals of Istanbul and Venice, through the symbolic image of a construction site with a ‘hybrid’ vessel, Baştarda, a cross between a galley and a galleon.

The existing house had particularly low ceiling heights and narrow, awkward living spaces. The client felt that the house had been built from poor quality materials which compared poorly with the Victorian neighbours. The brief was to create a bright and open living space with materials of quality and character. nimtim took an ambitious approach for extending and updating this small and unremarkable house. Taking inspiration from the Case Study Houses of the 1950s, as well as traditional and contemporary Japanese domestic architecture, nimtim proposed an addition formed of a series of lightweight timber portals running both front to back and side to side.

To build a house in Monterrey is a gift. To build the TEC lottery house in Monterrey is amazing. And, logically, I did my utmost to ensure that this house would be the most beautiful in the world. That is my stated intent with every new project that falls into my hands. And of course, if Barragán is always present in all my architecture, he is even more in this case, which is why I decided that not only would my house be flooded with light, but that it would be the golden light of Barragán. With this in mind, after creating a diagonal space resulting from concatenating two spaces of double height, I decided to gild the high vertical wall on which all the southern light would fall and fill it with this much-coveted golden hue. Accordingly this light-filled house would be literally flooded with golden light, and thus become a veritable Domus Aurea. In functional terms, the house is divided into three planes. On t… continue

When MM18 studied the ground, very irregular, the L shape with the first side parallel to the front of the lot was the one that resulted better use, but generating the sharp angle that ended up giving the nickname to the building. Another demand was that the construction needed to be fast, and with that need, the construction system adopted was the pre-cast concrete construction widely used in the region. The great challenge was to reconcile innovative ways with the conventional building techniques of the existing shed buildings in the region, adding aesthetic value to the Quest.

The covered outdoor space naturally becomes a resting place for people on the beach. It is also a space connecting religious space to the mundane life. When the tide rises, this space will be submerged by water. At that moment, the imagery of the drifting boat emerges out of the chapel. The atmosphere on upper floor is intensely divine and religious. The spatial experience begins on the 30 meters path leading to the chapel. When people gradually approach, the cue emerges indicating the suspending space on the other side through the 600mm wide gap in the middle of the grand staircases. With a glimpse of ocean in distance, they walk up the stairs, go through the gate, and make a turn around the screen wall into the space with unblocking ocean view. The relati… continue

It was founded as a voluntary Sunday school for young craftsmen in 1827. After the statutory introduction of vocational schooling for apprentices, a compulsory school was established in 1910, which moved to a new building on Raichbachstrasse in Tübingen in 1981. During the course of reconstruction work the chemical laboratory of the vocational school was equipped with new luminaires in autumn 2016. The project required the replacement of the lighting in line with the new laboratory equipment as well as the adjustment of the lighting intensity and the optimization of the energy consumption. Furthermore, an improvement to the acoustic conditions in the classroom was desired but with no additional construction work to be planned, thus the existing steel grid ceiling with inserts had to remain modifiable and the luminaires installed in the existing ceiling grid.

Die drei Hauptgebäude wurden belassen, die Massnahmen beschränkten sich dort auf die Verbesserung der Lichtführung. Auch die schlichte, filigrane Architektur der Altbauten kommt wieder zur Geltung. Bedarf bestand vor allem darin, mehr Fläche für die Schulräume zu gewinnen und diese attraktiver zu gestalten. Der bestehende Längsbau wurde abgerissen und durch einen pavillonähnlichen Neubau ersetzt, der die Strassenflucht klar nachzeichnet und einen reizvollen architektonischen Bezug zum Turm der Thomaskirche schafft.

Hamedan has an active urban space that is characterized by squares and an important north-south urban axis which connects them together. This axis crosses the site from the western side. The brief was to design a two-floor building with commercial functions: a retail space on the ground floor and a private office on the first floor. In terms of the urban skyline, the second floor (roof) follows its neighbor’s height, with a 2.5 meters height wall. So, this project encompasses three different characters on three levels with different communication with the urban space. Since this project has different addressees for each function, the idea was to connect the functions separately and directly to the urban space. Furthermore, we need to find a vertical access solution.

Therefore the outlines of the existing volumes are protected and the project had to be developed in collaboration with the conservation of monuments. The project is a contextual dialogue with history, the house is 170 years old. The historic, massive stone walls were the starting point for applying new contemporary forms of living – fresh typologies: 5 small apartments in the 'house' and 4 residential ateliers in the former workshops. <b>House Z22</b> The dwelling house is a townhouse built 170 years ago. The natural stone walls were created so long ago, but even then the walls were plastered. Now we have removed the original plaster layers and this led to a raw state of the natural stone walls, which never existed. It is a reference to the material, the construc… continue

So people are eager to get away from the multifarious city, and return back to the long-lost nature to freely breathe the fresh air. Mr. Zhang, the owner, grew up in the countryside thinks that both apartments and villas nowadays are too small in size. Story height of commercial housing is becoming lower and lower and makes people feel uncomfortable. The site of this project is very quiet, he loves this piece of land.

For Atlassian it is the core business. The company develops software for cooperation and agile work processes and has been selected as best employer in the world. Everything is based on the idea that people achieve more when they enjoy their work. How that is manifested in practice is clear from the interior of the new Amsterdam office. An Amsterdam canal belt building dating from the 1950s has been converted into an open and informal workspace. The company’s character connects informally with the Amsterdam building’s local identity. Atlassian is an international company, but also aims to reflect the local identity in the atmosphere and design of its offices. The reference point in Amsterdam was found in the immediate vicinity. The scale of the rear view of the houses opposite the inner courtyard was carried through in the interior design. Meeting rooms, project rooms and tranquillity boo… continue

Inhouse Brand Architects was briefed to come up with an interior scheme for a brand-new Piza e Vino outlet within the newly added extension to the Lynnridge Mall in Lynnwood, Pretoria. Inhouse was responsible for establishing Piza e Vino and its brand in the new space, working with the architects and construction team from the ground up. Inhouse took inspiration for the project from a diversity of vintage influences, particularly old-school pizzerias. Nostalgia plays a role in the restaurant’s finishes, which are a blend of patterned and subway tiles, polished concrete flooring, light oak dining tables, light coloured marble counter tops, real leather upholstered booths, leather seating with brass buckles and strapping details, and reclaimed timber cladding. These all give the space an authentic atmosphere, while making the dining areas warm and inviting.… continue

Contextually responding to the expressway and the harsh local microclimate (with temperatures that reach up to 50 degree Celsius), the project is conceived to fortify itself from the external environment and create a relevant oasis-like internal environment. The morphology is inspired from the ancient development of Fatehpur Sikri near Agra. The serene interiors are designed as a series of courtyards enclosed within the fort-like external walls. The introverted scheme acts as a heat shield to protect from the harsh climate and bleak exterior views. This building addresses energy, heat and lighting from a sustainable perspective – economizing on the first, defeating the second and optimizing the third. The opaque exterior walls contain within them jenga-like juxtaposed volumes, which house the work space and are seamlessly integrated with the central landscaped courts. Th… continue

Their vision was for a sophisticated but welcoming venue that would set a new standard for casual dining – a dynamic addition to Melbourne’s much-loved café culture. Spanning both interiors and branding, our concept was an elegant, timeless space inspired by the Greek delicatessens that flourished around Melbourne in the 1950s. Located in a busy shopping strip, the site offered a promising starting point – 4.5-metre ceilings, skylights that flood the space with natural light, and a deep rectangular footprint. At the heart of the space, a concrete service counter is accented with beautiful hand-painted green and teal tiles from Morocco that trace along the splashback and wrap around the front of the bar.

This new office layout meets all of the project’s diverse requirements: maximum storage space to access and file documents as quickly as possible was combined with workstations which support and improve communication as well as teamwork. The design concept is based on two central themes: on the one hand it is based on the theme of renovation, on the other hand on the company’s new logo which resembles the stylised header of a blueprint. Large panels were used for sliding doors which were decorated with specially developed graphic patterns. These patterns emerged by overlaying various wallpaper patterns from a wide range of different eras. This design idea refers to the renovation processes for apartments. Furthermore, foil variations of the logo’s square were added to glass partitions and a delicate line pattern was milled into the surfaces of various pieces of fu… continue

The Room is in the form of a boat, balanced on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Hall roof, seemingly beached by the receding waters of the Thames below. Named ‘Roi des Belges,’ after the paddle steamer that Joseph Conrad captained up the Congo that inspired his novella Heart of Darkness, the craft is an invitation to travel through literature and one’s imagination. An extraordinary panoramic view of London, stretching from Big Ben in the west to St. Paul’s in the east, allows guests aboard to see the city in a new light.

We willingly accect a challenge like this. The property is part of a grown settlement, but very large. In the past, the former presbytery was situated here. The dimension protects and establishes a loose distance to the neighbours. Respectively, the house does not take any direct reference to the existing buildings but is orientated solely at the topography, the dimensions of the building site, the requirements of the owners and of course at the sun.

Function and form come together in two lights created in one signature style: a pendant light and a table lamp. The skill required to transform such a large mass of molten glass into a hollow sphere could only be found among master glassblowers in Venice, where each lamp is hand-blown entirely from Venetian glass. This season, we’ve replaced the original purple colour with classic grey, giving Say My Name a more neutral tone. Like the original version, the new colour is created in the glass furnaces of Venice, and will be available with a glossy transparent surface or a matt finish. Morten & Jonas continue
