Plugged von Richard Yasmine | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/richard-yasmine-plugged/5104389 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 A series of carafe / jugs / soliflore and table lamps. Made of solid brushed brass and a very thin hand blown borosilicate glass mixed together to form one dramatically enchanting unit. The metamorphosed glass jug imitates the shape of the brass rod and covers half of this element in a sensational way. The main purpose is a firm base to maintain the stability of the entire design but definitely with a message behind; “protect yourself”, safe sex is absolutely essential to avoid unwanted consequences. A very neat contrast between the materials used light/heavy, transparent/dense, weak/strong reflects the male’s and female‘s organs represented as a daily useful object. Plugged is a sort of continuation in a way or so to my previous Glory Holes soliflore/table, I am trying to explore the Phallique shape and studying it from different angles, working on a certain philosophy or a story, I’m trying to work on how often I can incorporate it in our daily objects, but in a conce… continue

Junction 9 von MODA | Modern Office of Design + Architecture | Sports facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/moda-modern-office-of-design-architecture-junction-9/5104388 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 MoDA was approached in 2013 to reimagine an existing 10,000 sq. ft. two storey building in the historic Calgary neighborhood of Inglewood. Aside from the main feature of the expressive exterior screen, the project also involved a complete gut and renovation of the interior, the addition of a new exit stairwell, enlarging the existing windows and front entry, extending a stair to the roof, and bringing the building up to current life safety and code standards. At the outset, we were challenged by our clients to design a building that not only communicated their brand, but also playfully interacted with the broader community. One of the initial constraints we needed to consider was reanimating the front façade of a building made of concrete and wedged tightly up against the front property line. This reality removed the possibility of pushing or pulling the front façade. Added to this was an extremely restrictive budget and an outdated Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) that leaned heavily… continue

Zomato von Inbetween Architecture | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/inbetween-architecture-zomato/5104387 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The office fitout for the Zomato (previously UrbanSpoon) Asia-Pacific Headquarters in Melbourne had very clear delivery parameters; vast accommodation, very little time, very finite budget. The brief was to design a fresh, fun and adaptable work space that could cater to their highly transient and ever changing workforce. In a very refreshing approach, the client was genuinely open to just about anything, if it achieved the ‘bums on seats’ required in an affordable and effective way. In response to the particularly tight timeframe a ‘charrette’ design process was employed to quickly workshop and lock-down the brief, with all stakeholders, from high-level management to part time reviewers, able to guide this critical stage. It became clear that a focus on flexible zoning and meeting the needs of a range of specific work styles would be the basis of the design. The large floor plate is now zoned to offer spaces to hold a meeting (large or small), spaces that are ideal for quick collab… continue

Ruckstuhl Memory Rug von SHIBULERU | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/shibuleru-ruckstuhl-memory-rug/5104386 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Memory reflects tradition, technology, delight in experiment and the spirit of the times. The inspiration for Swiss designer Lukas Scherrer's elaborately designed rug made of pure new wool felt, with its three-dimensional surface suggesting traditional oriental carpet ornamentation, was the centerpiece of a standard computer - the print circuit board, which is to be found in every computer and in any kind of electronic equipment you care to name. Representing conductors, chips and plugs, the different patterns overlap in layers. SHIBULERU continue

Beartooth von SHIBULERU | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/shibuleru-beartooth/5104385 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Beartooth provides direct off-the-grid communication between smartphone devices. The pocket-sized transceiver pairs with smartphones via Bluetooth and allows users to talk to other Beartooth-carrying friends without having to rely on external infrastructure like Wi-Fi networks and cell towers. The simplest explanation: Beartooth turns smartphones into powerful digital radios. We designed the product closely together with the Beartooth engineers to ensure we can provide the tightest component package. Our constant engagement with the client improved the user experience and reduced the volume of the device by factor four. More than 10’500 Beartooth units were sold during the pre-order campaign alone. Beartooth lives in both consumer and military worlds. We distilled down these opposing contexts as well as the founders' vision into a brand that positions Beartooth appropriately. We designed everything from Brand Strategy to tangible assets such as Logomark, Wordmark and Brand Guideline… continue

Vitra at NeoCon 2016 von SHIBULERU | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/shibuleru-vitra-at-neocon-2016/5104384 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 For the 2016 edition of NeoCon, Vitra collaborated with Lukas Scherrer. The Swiss-born, San Francisco-based principal of SHIBULERU design presented his vision of an authentic design studio and a creative work culture in action. On display was an eclectic layering of Vitra and Artek products that blur the traditional distinctions of home, office and public spaces. Iconic classics designed by Jean Prouvé, Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen and Charles Eames were layered among contemporary classics by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison and Antonio Citterio. Vitra’s showroom was refracted through the prism of the Vitra Color and Material Library, the culmination of ten years of research by Hella Jongerius, Vitra’s Art Director for Colors and Materials. Vitra’s NeoCon 2016 presentation spanned two Chicago locations that highlighted compelling approaches to workplace design.

The sophisticated brand, mimijumi, offers a range of products that go hand in hand with the exciting experience young, fashion forward families will have. We helped mimijumi in creating the initial vision of the brand and then designed everything from Brand Strategy to tangible assets such as Logomark, Wordmark and Brand Guidelines for our clients’ everyday use.

Clinic Bellavista von Carlos Martinez Architekten | Hospitals https://www.architonic.com/en/project/carlos-martinez-architekten-clinic-bellavista/5104382 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 <b>Clear appearance</b> The design of the Ophthalmic Clinic was focused around importance of the historic heritage of the site. Wherein the battle of Vögelinsegg in 1403, the people from Appenzell, Switzerland attained their independence. Out of this significance, a rock-like volume was developed that reminds of the steadiness of earlier times. The building towers neatly above the terrain edge and opens itself towards the lake of Constance. Despite its remarkable size, the black-coloured building represses itself and at the same time follows the slope’s topography with three kinks. The stacked surface of the dark pigmented fair-faced concrete strengthens the stone-liked character of the form. The compactness of the building dematerializes in the middle part through a horizontally running window belt. The entire hospital is located in this section. The glazing provides a rhythmical structuring of the façade and gives the building a clear appearance and a kind of lightness. All roo… continue

Premier Inn von JOI-Design | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/joi-design-premier-inn/5104381 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 It’s fresh and original, with more than a hint of British wit. UK-based hospitality group Whitbread has celebrated the opening of its first hotel in Germany with a creative design by the Hamburg firm of interior architects. JOI-Design has got the Premier Inn chain off to a flying start in Germany, with an elegant interior for the new Premier Inn Frankfurt Messe in the city’s lively central Europaviertel district. The specialist firm of interior architects was advised on the German brand launch by Jeremy Scarlett (JSJ Design), who designs Premier Inn’s UK hotels. The result is a combination of distinctive British style with an added touch of humour, open-plan comfort, and attention to detail. The new Premier Inn blends traditional and modern with a mix of natural wood and dark, warm colours. These are brought to life by bright accents of turquoise, sunshine yellow and violet that make the hotel even more inviting, and the lobby is a contemporary take on a typically British library.… continue

Itahye House von Apiacas Arquitetos | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/apiacas-arquitetos-itahye-house/5104380 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Signed by the Brazilian architectural office Apiacás Arquitetos to be implemented in a condominium lot in a city near São Paulo (Brazil), it was possible to develop the Itahye House project with the contribution of the client, who agreed with the proposal to build a house that established a direct relationship with the street. Two parallel porticos intersected by a rectangular volume are implanted in the longitudinal direction to the lot and this arrangement configures new situations of permanence in a terrain of marked slope. The longitudinal volume houses all the intimate area - rooms, laundry and TV room -, is connected in level with the garage and has its circulation facing the patio that gives access to the leisure area, swimming pool and sauna. Its slab cover determines the level of the living room and extends, level, up the public walk, literally like an inner street. The perpendicular porticos to the volume of the rooms shelter the rest of the program. In front, the portico… continue

Moderne Akropolis Das tyrrhenische Meer ist Teil des Mittelmeeres und liegt zwischen dem italienischen Festland im Osten, den Inseln Sardinien und Korsika im Westen sowie Sizilien im Südosten. Von Norden her drängt das ligurische Meer, im Süden öffnet sich das Mittelmeer. Der kleine Ort Roccamare liegt in der Toscana und die Eltern der heutigen Besitzer haben hier bereits in den 1960er Jahren ihren Traum realisiert: Ein Haus im Stile der Skandinavischen Moderne — schlichte Formalität, Minimalismus und Funktionalität, gepaart mit einfachen Materialien. Das ganze am Rande eines Pinienwaldes, unmittelbar am Meer. «Vereinfacht gesagt, bestand die Villa aus einem grossen Flachdach, das von linearen einstöckigen Wandelementen gestützt wurde.

‘André Malraux’ Group of schools in Montpellier von Dominique Coulon & Associés | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/dominique-coulon-amp-associes-andre-malraux-group-of-schools-in-montpellier/5104378 Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The school unit is part of Montpellier’s dynamic for development, the aim being to connect the city with the sea. The school is set on a small triangular plot of land, in keeping with the urban policy for densifying a new residential area. The ground floor is taken up by the nursery school and the centre for before- and after-school activities. The primary school occupies the other two floors, with its playground on top of the nursery school. The volumes are designed as autonomous elements which appear to slide over each other, with their cantilevering providing covering for sections of the playground. Each volume is in a different colour or material. The bays have been designed according to their orientation and the level of light required. Transit routes receive natural lighting from the patios and tall openings. The first-floor classrooms can be accessed directly from the playground, without having to pass through the rest of the building. The classrooms are open at either end,… continue

Apartment H+M von destilat | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/destilat-apartment-h-m/5104377 Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The “Apartment H+M” project comprises the restoration of a 120m2-apartment in a classic Viennese old building on the piano nobile of a house that was built at the turn of the century. It is located on Äußere Mariahilferstrasse in Vienna’s 15th district. For this project our client was looking for an apartment with preservable original substance that was not altered by typical mistakes of previous renovation attempts. The typical structure of an apartment in an old building was adapted to meet the requirements of a modern style of living. The kitchen was integrated into the living area to make room for an additional children’s room that faces the courtyard. Even the former little bathroom was integrated into the newly created children’s room and became an alcove for the bed. The former entrance area, which included a bathroom and a cloakroom, was transformed into a lavish wellness-bathroom with a sauna. The wall separating this bathroom from the new foyer was removed and replaced by… continue

Casa Caldera von D U S T | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/d-u-s-t-casa-caldera/5104376 Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The off-grid house is located in a remote landscape on the southwestern bajada of the Canelo Hills in Southern Arizona’s San Rafael Valley, two hours southeast of Tucson and 15 miles north of the US/Mexico Border. Siting is balanced between the prospect of the open range and distant mountains toward the west and refuge from those who may venture across the landscape. Proximity to the border and immigrant related foot traffic led the owner to request an impenetrable structure. The house emerges from the native grasses, Emery Oaks, and open ranges beyond in a simple rectangular form of 18” mass walls constructed of poured lava-crete. The material is comprised of a mixture of pulverized lightweight red scoria, cement, and water, rammed into formwork. These walls create the structure, finish and offer insulation and thermal mass all in one stroke. The 945 sq ft structure takes clues from a vernacular “zaguan” housing typology. The plan locates two bedrooms (265 sq. ft.) opposite a l… continue

Casa Moscova von studio GUM | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-gum-casa-moscova/5104375 Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Casa Moscova is a volume with rectangular plan, placed on the fifth and top floor of a nineteenth century building, situated in a street corridor connecting the ‘garden’ of the city of Milan, the Sempione Park, to "Chinatown", whose pronunciation perfectly alludes today to that cosmopolitan quality of big and small cities. The longitudinal development of the plan measures 5x20 m: the elongated west side adjoins to a symmetrical apartment, presenting thus no openings, while towards east wide roof openings offer a broad view onto the skyline of Porta Garibaldi. The structure is of masonry and the thick partition walls of pressed bricks of which it consists divide the space in four communicating areas, connected towards west by a series of aligned openings that offer a full visual lengthwise from one end to the other. On top of the one sided pitched wooden roof, a row of skylights delivers a significant amount of light towards the ‘blind’ side of the house. The client is a young coupl… continue

The ample use of the colour blue, the Dutch cloudscape on the ceiling and intricate patterns found in furniture and floors remind us of both the building’s proud history as a naval base and of the sea that has always connected us with the rest of the world. Classic design features and craftsmanship are rediscovered to meet 21st century standards. Daylight and nature are brought right into the heart of the interior to create areas that have a stunning presence but also form very pleasant working environments.

Sakura von Nerma Linsberger | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/nerma-linsberger-sakura/5104371 Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 <b>Urban concept</b> The property is located on a very busy intersection. An intervention in the existing building use class made possible better light and sun exposure conditions. In order to defuse the “T”-point, a V-shaped courtyard has been cut into the building. The paths to the access balcony and the ancillary areas are concentrated around the courtyard. A passage in the East creates a pedestrian connection between Brünnerstraße and a park in the West. <b>Apartment structure</b> A large variety of apartment ground plans are made possible through the particular body structure of the building. Openness and the dynamic of the space structure may add to the diversity of housing units. B-type apartments can be put together into bigger units, each with correspondingly large sanitary facilities. It is possible to connect the rooms between the B and C-type apartments, or to merge them together. The apartments are designed in a very compact way and are economically optimized.

Julimar House von Sky-Frame | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/sky-frame-julimar-house/5104369 Wed, 15 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Located and hour and a half north of Perth in the Chittering valley. The landscape is a combination of cleared areas for farming and bushland. Gently rolling hills and the patch work of vegetation under the vast Western Australian sky provide a great context for the project. The climate is one of extremes, hot and dry in summer and cold and damp in winter. The house nestles into the steeply sloped hill, providing both a refuge and a frame to connect the occupants to the landscape. The materiality and detailing seek to create a stillness and a neutral backdrop, intensifying the interconnection. The design provides a series of interrelated experiences rather than an static aesthetic response. Materials are chosen to be low maintenance and left unfinished; gradually weathering and forming a patina over time-becoming integrated with the landscape. The intent is a sense of dematerialisation both as an object in the landscape and from within. Open living spaces connect to the natural la… continue

Its annex “Retreat” hotel, completed in March 2015, was center stage in television broadcasts in June as the venue for the G7 Summit. Zollanvari literally ‘rolled out’ the red carpets in the suites and some public areas of the “Retreat” annex – minimalist design two-tone handmade red carpets woven to a detailed brief given by the hotel’s owner Dietmar Müller-Elmau. He has shown a fondness for handmade carpets and has called all the design shots at his hotel establishments. This is not only evident in the Amaleh carpets by Zollanvari used for the refurbishment of the original Schloss Elmau hotel but also in the beautiful flooring designed by Müller-Elmau and produced by Zollanvari for the new Retreat hotel. The resulting creations are appealingly modern and radiate from the interplay between two shades of red. Dietmar Müller-Elmau opted for 100% highla… continue

The project was actually completed in 2006 when fourteen carpets with unique designs were delivered to the hotel: twelve Luribaft and two Bulurbaft. Edgar Wehrli has been a Zollanvari customer for many years and appreciates the outstanding quality of the wool, the natural beautiful colours and the authenticity and harmony of the design. Wehrli had previously worked for Thomas Straumann, the owner of the Trois Rois hotel, on the latter’s mountain chalet in Gstaad. They selected the carpets together at the Zollanvari warehouse/showroom in Zurich. The hotel Trois Rois is located on the very border of the Rhine and is historically the oldest ‘grand’ hotel in Europe, home to poets, thinkers, artists, statesmen, and dignitaries: Napoleon Bonaparte, Willy Brandt, Richard Wagner, Goethe, Voltaire, Jean-Paul Sartre, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Dalai Lama, Duke Ellington… continue

Martha von Ola Studio | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ola-studio-martha/5104366 Wed, 15 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Martha is a four bedroom beach-side family retreat perched on a steep hill in a quiet pocket of the Mornington Peninsular region. The dwelling is robust and designed to withstand the challenges that exist in coastal environments, however is offset by the expression of finely considered detail and proportion to promote a sense of lightness and warmth. Providing protection from the extreme weather conditions of its seaside location, windows are concealed behind operable timber shutters and screens to ensure the spaces are usable year-round. When open, the shutters may also be manipulated to create framed views, intimate outlooks, and playful splays of internal sunlight. The single storey dwelling extends south west towards the bay to take advantage of expansive unobstructed views across the Peninsula.

This space had to accommodate the yoga studio, photo shoots and moreover a variety of exhibitions. Premises area is only 71 sq / m, therefore the functional layout here was extremely important. Every corner of the space had to become functional, as the customers wanted highly mobile multi-dimensional space for future operations.

Two outdoor rooms connect the house and garden using a complimentary language to the original. Open to the sky and contained, these rooms have a lightness and transparency. The carport frames the courtyard, which rethinks the traditional suburban backyard. Composition of the new and old were considered together. New garden room spaces are considered as volumes so they are rooms rather than having a clear distinction between inside and out. One room is connected to the family/living space, the other to the private main bedroom. Both share a room view of the garden. The original house was anchored so we created something anchored and connected to the garden, while still having a lightness and transparency that transcends the material solidity. The breeze block is a structural unit in itself and was used in a direct and simple way. Connection to the outdoor area and the ability to have rooms that are open to t… continue

The studio’s concept for the redesign was very much inspired by the myriad of waterways, canals and rivers that define Hamburg’s status as an international trading port, with the lounge areas proposed as a ‘HUB’ that connects visitors from the world over with local city residents - an ideal place to meet, network and socialise. <b>Hospitable Hanseatic charm</b> The reconfigured reception area has been completely transformed into a bright, expansive oval space furnished at one end with a pair of prominent timber-clad reception desks.

Jiaxing Island von AIM Architecture | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/aim-architecture-jiaxing-island/5104361 Tue, 14 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Jiaxing Island, a mixed use building designed by Shanghai-based offices AIM Architecture and MORE Architecture, challenges the traditional notions of urbanisation in China. By literally placing public space in the centre of their project, the architects created a truly people-oriented architecture. On the fringe of quickly urbanizing Jiaxing, a 1 million inhabitant city between Shanghai and Hangzhou, this complex finds itself in a ferociously dynamic context – where the countryside has been replaced by industrial zones and residential compounds in less than a decade. This radical transformation has had an immense impact of the scale of the urban fabric: from S to XL in less in ten years’ time. Jiaxing Island is an antidote and alternative to these ubiquitous developments, by creating a human scale, mixed use environment with an emphasis on public space. The building complex consists of eight volumes merged into one building, offering a myriad of programs, uses, experiences… T… continue

Claus Porto Store von João Mendes Ribeiro Arquitecto | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/joao-mendes-ribeiro-arquitecto-claus-porto-store/5104360 Tue, 14 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Claus Porto is a portuguese scents brand whose 130 years history had to be summoned in the project of the фirst flagship store to open in Lisbon downtown. A heritage built not just by their impressive material assets, but also by their intangible patrimony, linked to the objects’ symbolic quality and value. Towards the visual impact that the Claus products have, the store design would have to be minimalist but very sensitive, so that it could enhance and complement the brand’s strong identity. It should be an inclusive, elegant and cosmopolitan place, but also a place with a strong sensory appeal. The interior of the preexistent store consisted of two different rooms at different heights, united by a staircase, both accessible by the exterior, with entrances in two different streets. The room in Rua da Misericórdia was, for many years, used as a pharmacy, from which it inherited the wooden display cabinets that cover all the walls and the plaster ceilings adorned with geometrical… continue

Skylight House von Inbetween Architecture | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/inbetween-architecture-skylight-house/5104358 Tue, 14 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Once a dark and segmented 1970s double brick home, Kew House underwent a complete internal overhaul and external update to suit the modern living styles of its young family. Retaining the valuable existing conditions of the suspended first floor concrete slab and external double brick walls the internal space was completely transformed to provide future flexibility, maximise access to natural light and improve energy-efficiency. Natural light and access to the elevated rear yard and pool zone were prioritised – an interesting challenge on a significantly sloping site. Inside, we reimagined the arrangement of spaces to locate family living and common spaces on the upper level, with bedrooms and other spaces requiring acoustic and physical separation located on the ground floor. The double brick external walls were insulated from the outside to further improve the home’s thermal performance. Three new skylights bathe the deep floor plate and central stair void with natural light th… continue

It is a cooperative, lower secondary level comprehensive school with multiple tracks that allow student mobility among different school forms, such as academic high school, mid-level secondary school, middle school, and combined lower- and mid-level secondary school for a total of 700 pupils. The new building is subdivided into three pavilion-like elements grouped around a common center. The pavilions establish a sense of individuality and identity for the respective grade levels, and each has a multipurpose room and five classrooms on its two upper floors. The specialized classrooms, administration, cafeteria, and school kitchen are located at the entrance level of the pavilions. At the heart of the newly created ensemble are the common areas, such as the auditorium, the music room, and the recreation room, which have been designed as a large “public center.” The pavilio… continue

Groves of trees surround the place giving the architecture a natural frame. It's design consists of a reinforced concrete box anchored to the terrain, a white box suspended by round columns and an horizontal plane. This surface is a Lapacho wooden deck that connects the garden, the pool, the barbecue area and the grove. The architecture has very precise construction details but a simple scheme. Private spaces are upstairs in the white volume and public activities take place in the ground floor. Although design looks modern, in essence this is classic architecture, governed by beauty and function. The combination of concrete, glass, steel, travertine and wood achieve Harmony and Elegance.

Tübingen School von (se)arch | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/search-tubingen-school/5104355 Mon, 13 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The intercultural education center is located in an attractive urban location not far from the historical district of Tübingen. The direct proximity to the riverside as well as the view of the castle are characteristic of the particular situation of the property. Inspired by the pavilion structure of the surrounding existing buildings, an ensemble of two differently sized buildings emerged: the two-storey primary school and the smaller, one-storey children‘s home. Both houses were designed on a square floor plan with a pyramid roof and are connected via a common, covered entrance area. The two pavilion-like solitaires create a high permeability in the outer space due to their open arrangement. The result is a „school landscape“ through which the important paths and perspectives are preserved as far as possible. Due to the location and topography of the property, the striking roof surfaces can be experienced as a fifth façade. Splitting the entire cubature into two smaller buildings… continue

The existing art department had very limited natural light and ventilation. Storage provision was meagre, and there was no gallery space. The brief called for studio and exhibition spaces that could match the school’s commitment to a high quality and varied arts education, and a prominent street-facing site was identified as part of a wider masterplan of the school. A range of materials for the external façades was researched and presented to the planners and governors, including recycled glass, stucco flutes and marble; stone was considered the most appropriate material on account of its elegance and traditional qualities. The resulting façade is a unique piece of design that draws on the timeless quality of stone, expressed in a tr… continue

The new school, which also houses a daycare facility and a youth club, is built on the site of former school, Sct. Annagades School. For decades Sct. Annagades School was a well-established gathering place for the local community. This lead to a vision of the new school building supporting the old memoir. The school is dedicated to the youth and children of the local area. It aims to give children as well as adults an ideal environment for unfolding and learning. In the design of the building an architectural focus lies in numerous spatial qualities such as daylight and materials creating an environment which invites learning through movement and sense-perception. The building follows Aarhus City Council’s program for new learning environments in schools and public institutions. The program focuses on a merge between the bui… continue

It is tightly embedded in the dense urban fabric, opposite a park and straddling the maintenance workshops for the new tram line. The building is on three levels. The plot of land is small, and the roof areas are used to house the elementary school’s classrooms and educational gardens. The group also includes a sports hall, a canteen, a library, and out-of-school childcare facilities. The building is very thick; the hollows scooped out of the facades serve as facets, attracting the light and reflecting it back. Many of the traffic routes are lateralised, making them varied and bright. A number of patios irrigate the heart of the building, bringing natural light into its thickness. Internal transparencies add extra richness to traffic routes. On the town side, the building offers a rustic texture. Strips of untreated wood (with the bark left on) emphasise the corr… continue

At Pöstlingberg in Linz, surrounded by intact nature, destilat has realised its 3M house on a steep property with a view of the river Danube. An essential part of the design concept was to correspondingly incorporate the property’s uniqueness as well as the bordering edge of the forest and the magnificent view of the Danube valley. In accordance with the property’s topography, the building consists of stepped mezzanines which make the house fit perfectly into its natural environment. Its offset levels, supported by their selected surfaces, create different room heights which define the house’s cosiness. Besides carefully selected design classics, the house’s furniture predominantly consists of designs by destilat. The kitchen is based on destilat’s own design, while destilat’s dining table ‘4 to the Floor’ was combined with lamps by Tom Dixon. The res… continue

The Urban Farm is set to be a major step in the development of VDNKh – including a completely new building (rather than a remodelling of an existing one), connecting the contemporary city-dweller with his needs and the history of the exhibition park. Tasks set before the Bureau were to make an interesting destination that would be attractive for VDNKH visitors on a plot beside the Kamenskiye Ponds - 40 minutes’ walk from VDNKh’s Main Entrance, in the most distant corner of the park, bordering on the Botanical Gardens. The solution that was found - to create a children’s educational complex around Kamensky Pond– “a farm in the city”, where children will be able to familiarize themselves with nature, find out what various animals look like, and where their milk, vegetables and fruit come from.

These simple geometrical shapes are cut diagonally into two pieces to create a full brass paper weight, and a multipurpose container. The colored container contrasts with the brushed brass of the paper weight, to bring an interesting value to the desk, and to add a beautiful minimalistic touch to its atmosphere. These simple items are appealing to even the most avowed minimalist. Each sculptural shape rests on a flat surface and appears to drown in it, giving the image of surrealistic scenery. This surrealistic scene reflects an image of historical Beirut landscapes, after many earthquakes destroyed the city; ruins appeared everywhere, to become nowadays part of the lost and found treasure. This image evokes the sense of nostalgia, and allows these golden pieces to be considered as the treasures of the golden city. These precious ruins create a sor… continue

The proposal explores the relations between inside and outside through two systems that will define the spatial organization of the school: in the classrooms, an atmosphere of concentration is sought, so the large windows open to gaps, like private courtyards, providing controlled natural light and diagonal views to the surroundings. In the common zones the opposite happens: direct and frontal views, large perspective fields in all directions as well as plenty of natural light in the corridors. There is no separation between structure, architecture and building services. The structure is at once architecture and its material is the actual finish.

The young firm APPAREIL architecture transformed the space to lend it a contemporary feel while preserving its traditional spirit. The new look marks the return of the restaurant’s founder, Vallier Dufour. The mandate, taken up by the architect Kim Pariseau, was to create a luminous, modern and cosy interior, where people would want to gather around a good, comforting meal. Divided into four zones, the restaurant offers its guests different ambiances. The bar is now the heart of the space, serving as a meeting and gathering place. A high table, which was intended to be an extension of the bar, becomes a friendly and festive space for large groups. Tables for two are located along the windows on the perimeter of the restaurant, offering more intimacy and a view of the street. Also, a lounge area with a long comfortable bench was designed for those wishing to simply relax and enjoy Vallier’s ambiance… continue

Slack von Snøhetta | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/snhetta-slack/5104345 Thu, 09 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Slack is the fastest-growing workplace software in the world. With over 6 million active weekly users, the intra-office messaging system is revolutionizing the way teams communicate around the globe. For the startup’s New York City headquarters, Snøhetta retrofitted a 12,000 SF space on the top floor of an 1880’s landmarked building in Lower Manhattan’s NoHo/East Village neighborhood to provide a versatile, sunlight-filled office. The design of each of Slack’s offices around the world aims to integrate elements of their local context, and Snøhetta’s design for Slack’s new NYC space is inspired by the city’s distinctive urban courtyards. Drawing inspiration from interior parkscapes like Paley Park, bamboo plants provide natural privacy screens and energize the space with greenery. Four existing skylights with enlarged, splayed ceilings dramatically increase the incidence of natural daylight deep into the space and the pocket courtyards beneath them.

Alarmingly - it is visually evident to see an increasing trend of these original housing styles being demolished to make way for large, two storey modern housing typologies. These are often conceived as mock - neo-Georgian or rendered triple-fronted brick veneer. Around the 1960s and 70s a number of European trained architects such as Ernest Fooks began designing a series of superb international modern style inspired houses in and around the Caulfield and wider area. A protégé of Fooks – Michael Richard Ernest Feldhagen also completed a number of exemplar international modernist style singular residences and mutli-residential flats around the same period.

It was conceived of as an addition to the existing landscape of garages, sheds + super-six fencing. We therefore decided to clad the structure in the ubiquitous fencing product. To articulate the autonomy from the existing home, the supersix cladding is carried to the inside where it is encountered at the end of an existing corridor. The supersix defines the limits of a rectangular volume that is pushed into the existing fabric of the home (the former master bedroom) and contains the garage, storage, walk-in-robe and reconfigured bedroom. The space between this box and the limits of the previous master bedroom becomes a corridor that leads to the newly created northern porch and to the bedroom in the other direction.

The brief was centred about a reconfiguration of the existing house, in order to emphasize the importance of its kitchen. The clients required a long and functional kitchen for a family of four that was able to also cater to entertaining. Poor access to light and air also compromised the amenity of the existing house and was a central challenge around which the design revolved. To maintain the existing bungalow and its original features, the addition is connected via a small link. This link creates two internal courtyards that served to bring additional light into the ensuite and study. Faced with an extremely tight budget, the design was centred about a shed-like structure that ensured simple construction. Simple interventions and manipulations of the roof form were explored as a means to introduce additional light to the renovated portion of the house. The siz… continue

The client had a diverse brief, including both definite and abstract goals such as maintaining and enhancing connections to the established garden, adding a master bedroom suite, providing a secure and defined entrance and reconfiguration and refurbishment of the existing layout and spaces. The combination of these elements led to the non-conventional addition of a new pavilion to the front of the site. The form of the addition closely references the typical gable form of the existing house but juxtaposes it with fiercely contemporary detailing and materiality. Once through the sheltered entry and front door, the garden aspect is immediately appreciated with a large-scale, fully glazed sliding door that opens onto the landscaped rear yard.

The design offers a certain playfulness without having to concede on visual soundness. The striking backrest ensures that the overall look is very slim and light. The sitting section creates the illusion of a spherical square and, therefore, provides a playful effect that gives the armchair a friendly look. As can be expected from the long tradition of Durlet’s workmanship, this design ensures the highest levels of sitting comfort. The backrest is open at the bottom but offers perfect support. The rounded springs guarantee an extremely pleasant sitting experience. The ornamental seams highlight the lines of the model and visually finish the item as a whole.

The bricked and plastered newly built houses orientate themselves on the historic and industrial affected buildings from Uster. The floor plan of the bigger House whit its 22 apartments and a day nursery is divided into four parts. On each storey there is a washroom, embraced by glass bricks, which is shared by the four parties on the same floor. On the one hand, this is very useful for the inhabitants on the other hand it makes the Staircase to a meeting point. The smaller building includes 13 apartments on four floors and an attic. The apartments are east/west orientated, so they benefit from eveni… continue

The three-storey building has been expanded to include an additional floor and an attic. Due to the staggering height, along the overall length of the building, a new, high-quality cubical structure is achieved, which is highlighted by the encircling balustrade bands in light, wavy fiber cement and re-enforced by the in-between darker accentuated windows. The ground floor includes a shopping mall while the upper floor contains office- and service areas along the north side, and apartments along the south side. On the rooftop there is a huge 250 square meters large „green room“ as the outside area for the inhabitants of the building named City Center. moos. giuliani. herrmann. architekten.

The available space for the new garage between two existing buildings and the property border is very narrow. A gateway into the hall, with a ninety-degree angle to the roadway would not have been possible for large vehicles. That is why we decided to place the building, with its jagged and stepped front, as close as possible to the site border. Through the four gates it is possible to park a maximum of seven fire trucks. The large shed roof is placed on the wall slats like a lid and its corresponding with the surrounding buildings. The walls are held very robust and upkeep friendly in double wall cement elements. The roof consists of 5.24 m long glulam beams, which span over the pillar free ground plan. The sheds are out of fir green Montana elements, planked with translucent polycarbonate. moos. giuliani. herrmann. architekten.

White background with black font is basically the most often used book printing format around the globe. When you come to think about it, the film’s nature is acting exactly opposite to the books. Cinematographers use black frames to capture the precious moment of different actions. Set aside the genuine difference of black and white background used between films and books, it’s an astonishing fact that how they actually correlate with each other. Both of them use a series of still images to depict meaningful stories. Through words and pictures, though indifference in medium, striving towards the same goal - to inspire and ignite the imagination of people who have locked their deepest desires inside.

A bright and extensive space was created offering Ester Bruzkus a place of both openness and retreat. The apartment consists of a sunny, loft-style room with concrete floors and ceilings that extends through from one façade to the other. The architectural prelude to the apartment is the freestanding kitchen block with a large work surface of polished statuario marble, also used to clad the niche in the wall of cupboards behind. Connecting though, the dining and living area extends the full depth of the building. Here extensive built-in furniture hides all elements that could detract from the clarity. The 40cm deep and 180cm wide structural offsets in floor and ceiling heights on both sides of the building seem to create an intermediate zone between the internal and external space. The podium and the balcony on the street side of the apartment have a fine view toward… continue

This piece of land, located in the middle of a coastline dotted with “All Inclusives,” would have to be transformed into a box that contained its own sea – practically its own air – given the happy circumstance that the universe had created a desert joined to the sea along a horizontal line. It was the purest, most minimalist landscape a horizon could have drawn. On either side, this dreamlike scenery collided with what humans consider to be aesthetic and build and baptize as architecture. I wanted to draw my own version, apart from the rest. I believe that the greatest virtue of architecture is the generation of sensations through space on a series of planes that are found within the realm of sensitivity. I believe this capacity becomes still greater when your surroundings allow you… continue

Here slapa oberholz pszczulny | sop architekten has built the Orjin Maslak Plaza, a high-rise office block of the highest standards. Besides office space, the 16-storey building also offers a food court, conference centre and several retail units on the ground floor and its two basements – ideal for meeting the high demand for such services locally. The office levels are highly flexible and can accommodate all the usual forms of office organisation, including individual, shared and open-plan offices. A spectacular achievement was the construction of an underground car park with spaces for 1.200 vehicles. The eight basements required for this feat emerged from a 32-metre deep foundation pit. Another special feature is the energy standards employed, which are not yet commonplace in Istanbul. The building is equipped with double façades with external sun… continue

Since it is a rented property, structural changes were hardly possible. Only a new cabinet stands like a monolith in decent grey between bedroom and guestroom. By opening two huge doors, which are mirrored on the inside, the guest room can be transformed into a stately dressing room in no time.

Affordable and modest, this type of housing is typically isolated, with few decorative details, a sloping roof, brick facades, and a floor area of about 25 feet by 25. Steeped in history, these homes do not meet the needs of today’s young families, and this is why the owners commissioned APPAREIL architecture. The firm had the task to expand and upgrade the living space offered by the bungalow to accommodate the new residents, as well as to create a spacious interior with a Nordic style. The body of the building was retained, and an extension was added to meet the clients’ needs, with careful consideration to retain the personality of the house or to respect its original volume. The identity of the “veteran” house remains well recognizable: The facade is still modest and discreet, but modernized. The soldier-brick… continue

WOHA was commissioned only after their demolition to reconstruct the shopfront (up to 7.5m depth) in accordance with Singapore's Urban Redevelopment Authority's conservation and planning guidelines, and to design an entirely new, contemporary rear wing. As the original floor levels with their low ceiling heights were retained, the front end of the shophouses was deemed more suitable for meeting rooms, while the service end accommodated a mechanised carpark. The idea was to strategically lift up the open plan offices within the upper 4 floors where the floor plate size is maximised, higher headroom is gained, better views are enjoyed and more natural daylight is accessed from the sides. Every flat roof area is also transformed into roof gardens with the attic featuring the office’s recreational lounge from which unblocked panoramic views of Hong Lim Park and PARKROYAL o… continue

Only the shell was left of the existing structure, a brick building of 50 m2 in an almost square footprint, with a sloping ceiling height of 3.8 to 5.8 m. In response to the varying ceiling height and to keep the generous natural light from the existing skylight, a partial second floor was inserted in two levels, expanding the total floor area to 90 m2. The combined living room and kitchen occupies most of the ground floor with a pantry, bathroom and the entrance on one side. On the upper level, a mezzanine leads to a small study and two bedrooms with big sliding doors to the open two-level space. A second bathroom is located a couple of steps down from the master bedroom. To make the interior feel warmer, the new additions feature a lot of wood: from the exposed beams of the inserted floors, to the visible framing of the entrance walls… continue

At the heart of it all was the idea of retreat, a slow moving space that would provide a haven from the hectic paces of modern life, a slow building for slow living. The response to the open-ended brief for a non specific ‘studio and retreat space’ was to create flexibility through adaptability. the idea that the space can be divided or united depending on the requirements of that given moment.

The building was divided into two separate areas: a store and a house, with no link in between them. The ground floor serves as the commercial area with a double height ceiling (4,6m) and has direct access to the street. The housing area is composed by the first floor and an attic, and is accessed laterally through a gate, which also serves as entrance to the remaining buildings that leads to the interior of the block by an outside corridor. <b>Program</b> The program is characterized as "home for an artist".

Focusing on the feelings of people, continuing the past life experience as well as creating the new ones for the dwellers is the most fascinating and main core for this project. White is the most important memory factor in this project. This simple factor is placed into the space through various architectural and geometric forms, and it shapes functional spaces of every floor, creating a clear, cozy and refined atmosphere appropriately. At same times, white also appears in multiple materials. The flake-shaped stair handrails and star-like glittery vertical chandeliers penetrate and connect each of floor, spaces are thus divided and connected.

Built over a century ago, the station is part of a network of structures used to provide rescue and relief for shipwrecked sailors, and it was from this station that a guard once discovered Nazi invaders coming ashore during World War II. Designed with lookout towers, weather-protected cupolas and elevated decks, the stations offered many views for the crews to survey the horizon through all seasons. Inside, large, open storage rooms often featured boats, oars and other useful items hung from exposed beams for easy access. Taking cues from this structure, the design of the new residence strikes a dialogue with the landmark to enrich the experience of the new home and celebrate the local history.  The principal strategy for the home stems from the utilitarian practice… continue

The boundaries between indoors and outdoors are blurred, making the cabin part of the forest. The 7th room experience begins when approaching the cabin from the forest. Nearing the base of the tree, the view of the complete cabin gradually recedes as a sixth façade appears.

Upon arrival, the oval-shaped gigantic lobby greets the guests with its curvy form, just like the coastal line between the land and the ocean. Wave forms hide within the whole perimeter. Various lengths of rectangular tiles manifest the flooring, when looking from afar, are like the sea water being washed onshore, under the influence of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of the Earth.

The small elegant salon was designed by Bruzkus Batek architects, who have created a space whose boudoir character is accentuated by a homely, almost intimate atmosphere. Three neat steps lead from the street directly into the reception and waiting area, whose walls are clad with micro-fluted white panels, bringing historical stucco to mind. Due to a framing shadow gap they are clearly legible as a cladding layer, and contrast in their perfection with the rough-surfaced original wall that is visible as a border above the fluted panels. The reception area furniture dates from the 1960s. The adjacent salon with its four styling chairs is seen through two openings in the dividing wall.

Bright floors, cosy grey tones, and lavish white surface areas are the sound foundation of this apartment’s serene, harmonious atmosphere. The centre of the apartment is a spacious living room with the so-called “camouflage kitchen”, which was also designed by destilat. The fronts of this kitchen are furnished with eternit panels. Its drawers have slightly slanted angles. This fresh design element becomes a welcome counterpoint to the relaxed atmosphere of the apartment. A lighting circle hovers above this central point of the living area and further highlights its atmospheric effect. The kids’ comfortable bedrooms, a guest room and a master bedroom with an en-… continue

Sardinera House von Ramón Esteve | Estudio | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ramon-esteve-estudio-sardinera-house/5104310 Fri, 27 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Located in a setting of great beauty and valuable landscape, in front of the Mediterranean Sea, between El Portixol and Cala Blanca, the Sardinera House lays on the top of a hillside, lined by a headland entering the sea on a bay of turquoise waters. <b>Unique location</b> “The original idea for the design was based on enjoying and enhancing the panoramic views of the setting, by creating a relaxing contemplative environment that allows enjoying the experience provided by the place.” MASSIVENESS & LIGHTNESS A set of concrete walls exhibited facing different directions, compressing and expanding the views and generating several ages. The vertical surfaces are limited horizontally by long cantilevers that extend towards the sea, thus creating verandas that enclose the large terrace. Because of their constructive system, these cantilever don’t lean on the walls, but fit in between them, thus increasing the visual tension and generating paradoxical sensations of massiveness and weight… continue

Beyond House von Ben Callery Architects | Semi-detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ben-callery-architects-beyond-house/5104309 Fri, 27 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 With Beyond house we seek to stretch the boundaries of the typical terrace house. The existing heritage house was south-facing, dark, cold, narrow and overshadowed by neighbouring walls on both side boundaries. It's owners, a family of three, were detached from the world beyond. They are serious about sustainability and wanted the new addition to be naturally comfortable, using sun for heating, breezes for cooling, water harvesting, solar power, recycled materials (even re-using the old kitchen!) and integrating and indoor clothes airer. The owners had lived here for 10 years, and needing more space (and sun), had weighed up moving out but their physical and social connections in Northcote were too strong. So the view to Rucker’s Hill, a geographic and social centre of Northcote, became a focus of the vistas from multiple rooms. Facing north, this view co-incides with getting sun deep into the Living rooms at the back of the house. We looked beyond the site constraints and beyond… continue

Case study: Wilkhahn, Chair ‘Chassis’ von Architonic Digital Studio | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/architonic-digital-studio-case-study-wilkhahn-chair-chassis/5104308 Thu, 26 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 The chair ‘Chassis’ from Wilkhahn is great product. It’s the world’s first mass-produced chair whose frame is made with advanced space-frame technology from the automotive world. The chair comes in multiple frame colours and a selection of fabric- or leather or plastic seating choices. In total the chair comes in 121 variations! The chair is merchandised via a pdf that shows photos of two variants of the chair: in black and in red. An added swatch-card shows the available options. It was up to the architects’ or customers’ imagination what the chair could look like. We digitised the shape and the bespoke leather- and textile collection. We then created sets-of-4 images of each variation: from the front, side, back and a detail shot showing the engraved brand name. The price per ‘photo’ was, this way, unbeatably low.

Case study: Pfister Curtain Service von Architonic Digital Studio | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/architonic-digital-studio-case-study-pfister-curtain-service/5104307 Thu, 26 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Pfister’s curtain service is a known brand in Switzerland, providing clients with both the in-house brand and other known brands fabrics and an atelier to create made-to-measure curtains. The process of selecting a fabric, measuring the window and fitting required many contact moments and the only way for the client to actually see what the curtain could look like was in-store, or via a personal visit by one of the Pfister representatives with a car full of samples. We created 3 curtain ‘shapes’ to represent thick, medium and sheer fabrics. We then digitised each fabric and produced ‘photos’ of curtains. The result gave Pfister the chance to bring these curtains into their online shop, and their customers the chance to start the fabric browsing already at home. Architonic Digital Studio continue

To equip the apartment we used vintage furniture, carpets and lamps from the 20s, 60s and 70s from Poland, the Czech Republic and Switzerland. Set of the armchairs in the living room was designed by Danish duet Rud Thygesena & Johnny Sørensena for Magnus Olesen A/S. Kilims by Antonin Kybal. Ceiling lamp in living room was designed by Franta Anýž in Prague around 1930. In the project we used a very unique bookcase designed by Rajmund Halas in 1961 and contemporary photographs by a Slovak artist Maria Svarbova (on the wall in the dining room).

The new layout of the house comes out as a result of introducing these premises into de project, preserving the essence of the original housing, and opening the main spaces to the backyard. The original structure of the house, of wooden beams and beam fills, turns into an important part of the new layout as well as the old wooden doors that, althoug being in a new position, are all restored and reused to delimit the new spaces. Located back in the house there are the living spaces, living room, kitchen and the main room so that the backyard becomes the key area of the house, being a direct extensión of the interior spaces.

Cloud 7 von tnE Architects | Monuments/sculptures/viewing platforms https://www.architonic.com/en/project/tne-architects-cloud-7/5104301 Wed, 25 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 With a roof draped "like a leaf between trees", the "Wolke 7" (Cloud 7) structure nestles naturally into the historic park landscape. On the path between the castle inn and the tower, the walkway has been expanded to define the pavilion grounds. The "floating" roof, a curved umbrella above the ground, creates a spatial and atmospheric effect, marking the culinary meeting point at the centre of the castle park. The twice-bent, in-situ concrete surface rests on the steel supports like a "sheet of paper". The resulting deformation elevates the natural bending process to a structural principle. The curved contour of the roof, derived from the position of the existing trees, suggests accessibility from all sides, providing an open space for refreshments with an open air atmosphere. The ensemble is completed with a long bar, a storage box with serving niches and a glass cabinet. The result is a spatial ensemble without a front or back – in summer the wine is chilled, in winter th… continue

With stone forming the base a sculptured curved fa§ade creates the lighter upper levels. The building is beautifully modulated by the use of timber batten extensions forming bay windows against the curvaceous white render masonry which all sit wonderfully with the Will Dangar designed gardens. Designed for a family of four the house is inverted from the traditional house with the main living areas positioned on the top floor to take advantage of the ocean views and allows these rooms to use the volume of the roof space creating strikingly formed ceilings. The house is L-shaped in plan creating a central courtyard that flows around to the pool area to the rear. The courtyard acts as a private outdoor area which is purposely orientated to the sun yet protected from the sea breezes, which are a daily occurrence. The upper living areas flow out onto the large co… continue

Its obsolete fragmented typology presented a series of small rooms, some devoid of natural light, and an impractical exterior bathroom. The intervention aimed to erase these faults and to clarify the use of the available surface: a gently curved wall was extended from façade to façade, defining the limit between a vast common space and the different private rooms. The long main space serves as living but also as dining and kitchen area; it is a living gallery rather than a living room. Its curved wall is punctuated by hand-painted doors in different shades of blue, hanging detached from the floor like a set of monochrome paintings. There is a carefully calibrated clash between the lightness of the curve and the rigidity of its elevation. The materials and orientations of the floors underline the functional distinction through the apartment. A small roof area was reclaimed behind the back façade: the new courtyard-like space… continue

The designers reserve the original cement ceiling and from which starts the design of the whole project. This house equipped with a broad window view, so the beautiful city skyline has been taken into consideration. Based on the precious condition of the beautiful view and the natural illumination, the layouts of the spaces were reconceived. Furthermore, traffic flows were smoothly arranged to provide diverse look of common areas and private rooms. Through native qualities of cement, the designers develop the tone of colors, decoration, and furniture, also put the meticulous graphics into classical elements and connect them with the white background, thereby setting off the cement-polished wall and creating a beauty of original. The function of the kitchen island are deliberately divided into two parts: one side face to the cabinet is used as cooking light meals and the other side face to the living room can be used… continue

With the widespread of 3D and even 4D high definition movies available on global market, the old method of filming has gone scarce, if not extinct. When thinking of the theme for this cinema, the designers want to trace back to the roots when filmmaking began. Back in the 19th century, photographers captured continual images and stored them on a single compact reel of film. This ancient object – roll films, was being symbolized all over the cinema, reminding the audience the long forgotten history behind the scene. Splattered with black and white, designers use white as the main frame of the roll films, which is opposite to the usual black color. The white background engulf the entire space, motioning itself smoothly along the wall of the building. Its flexibility reflects the nature of roll films. Thin pieces of black stripes intercut the white surface, resembling the breaking and reunifying… continue
