Between the disused crane tracks we hung a floating Innovation Floor, forming an urban shelving unit. The office floor area can be increased or decreased as required in order to respond to future needs. The transformation has led to an extraordinary contrast of old and new, and resulted in a huge increase in value for the companies in the Innovation Dock. Groosman continue

Alongside our role as designer of five residential blocks, we are also the co-ordinating and delivery for the whole project. To the side of the town centre and Woerden Castle, Scala Architecten have designed dwellings inspired by the elegant townhouses and charming town park by the Oostdam, so that the island is read as part of the Woerden canal, which surrounds the compact town centre.

The new dwellings located around the protected monument are designed in an industrial style, as if they are part of a single factory complex. The synergy between the monument, the architecture and the design of the public realm ensures that the area maintains its historical character. Groosman continue

Two Hulls House by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects Ltd | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mackay-lyons-sweetapple-architects-ltd-two-hulls-house/5105994 Fri, 18 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Two Hulls House is situated in a glaciated, coastal landscape with a cool maritime climate. The site’s geological make-up consists of granite bedrock and boulder till, creating pristine white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Two pavilions float above the shoreline like two ship's hulls resting on cradles for the winter, forming protected outdoor spaces both between and underneath them. Like a pair of binoculars, Two Hulls House acts as a landscape-viewing instrument, effortlessly framing the environment. A concrete seawall on the foreshore protects the house from rogue waves. Two Hulls House touches the land lightly, resting on concrete fins, in order to have a minimal impact on the fragile land and flora. This is a permanent home for a family of four, consisting of a day pavilion and a night pavilion. One approaches the understated, abstract public façade on the land side, then proceeds through the foyer, turning right to the sleeping pavilion or left into the living pavilion. L… continue

West Hotel by Woods Bagot | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/woods-bagot-west-hotel/5105993 Fri, 18 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 <b>Sydney's newest city hotel turns inward for lush, moody experience.</b> The lushly vegetated central courtyard of Sydney's newest city hotel provides a welcome escape from the city bustle. Interior design by Woods Bagot. West Hotel offers discerning travellers a unique stay in the heart of the city. Tucked between two buildings in the emerging western corridor between Sydney Harbour and the CBD, the design intentionally amplifies the internal experience. At eight storeys high and open to the elements, the mini-rainforested courtyard atrium is a key element in the entire ground floor, connecting with the hotel lobby and Solander restaurant, and overlooked by guest rooms. "Open to the elements, sunshine streams into the courtyard on a sunny day. When it rains, faint scents of the plants emanate and it feels like nature," said Woods Bagot's hotel sector leader Jacqui Senior. Ms Senior explained that the hotel's siting and architecture are unusual for Sydney, qualities that were e… continue

Scala Fondazione Vac - Palazzo Zattere by De Castelli | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/de-castelli-scala-fondazione-vac-palazzo-zattere/5105992 Sat, 19 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The protagonist for this staircase is natural iron, simply oxidized by hand to obtain a ‘’spotted’’ effect. This project involved a kind of manufacture typical of heavy carpentry. Metal sheets were chosen with a thickness of 15 mm, using them as if they were sheets, cutting them with laser and joining one to the other. A game of grafts and joints in a structure almost welding free, composed as if it was a Meccano game. For the wall covering Boiserie, délabré Iron B was chosen, a De Castelli’s more homogeneous finishing compared to the staircase material. In this case, what is interesting is the solution for covering fire-fighting appliances with concealed doors. The internal glass of the staircase also acts as a support for iron handrails. Glass, iron and stone coexist and intersect to create a unitary structure. architetti Pedron/La Tegola continue

One is more distinguished and luxurious, while the other one is characterized by a young and playful design, creating a formal yet contemporary environment. The look was achieved by using warm, industrial and raw materials. The ‘’Boiserie’’ wall covering system in wax treated COR-TEN is meticulously used to create a sophisticated prestigious look through a Mondrian-style grid. A wax treated COR-TEN desk completes the environment. Ori Halevy, Einat Lahav Avigor - Auerbach Halevy continue

RISE Restaurant at Marina Bay Sands by Aedas | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/aedas-rise-restaurant-at-marina-bay-sands/5105988 Thu, 17 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 In the grand hotel atrium at Marina Bay Sands sits the hotel’s international buffet restaurant, RISE. In order to meet the evolving (or growing) demands of guests, Aedas Interiors was commissioned to re-design the dining area of RISE, with an intent to create a fresh and new experience for guests. Whilst considering this cosmetic refurbishment, the team was also challenged to improve on the existing planning, function and operational areas, in particular waiter stations, and buffet. As always, creating a sense of place is at the core of any Aedas Interiors concept. Utilising the original bones of the previous design, including the important and significant ‘Rising Forest’ sculptures by renowned artist Chongbin Zheng, led the team to a concept and storyline merging inside and out. To meet the operational requirement, dining flexibility was maximised via bespoke, standalone service stations that were planned and detailed to reflect trellis-like partitioning within a natural rising fo… continue

Missing chair by Regular Company | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/regular-company-missing-chair/5105987 Thu, 17 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Missing chair is the result of an attempt to create a chair that is stripped down to the bare minimum. A chair that has no unnecessary elements that stand out, a chair whos character and distinctive appearance come solely from subtle details and curves of its 3 basic elements - the legs, the seat and the backrest. It looks almost like a sketch, as if the seat and backrest were just framed by 4 clean lines, lines that are drawn and frozen in space. The subtle spatial curves and the position of the seat and backrest also make the chair stackable, which in combination with its lightness make it functional and suitable for the contract market. The Missing collection was presented at SaloneSatellite 2018, an exhibition showcasing young design talents taking place during Milan Design Week.

The Murray by Foster + Partners | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/foster-partners-the-murray/5105986 Thu, 17 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Murray is a luxury 336-room hotel located on the southern edge of Central with panoramic views of The Peak and the gardens to the south. This major transformation of the listed building aims to reinvent this unique urban quarter – stitching together the urban fabric by linking the large green spaces flanking the site to the east and west. A former government headquarters tower, the Murray Building was originally designed at a time when the city was planned around the car, and consequently stands on an island site, surrounded by roads making it impermeable for pedestrians. One of the central aims of the project is to reconnect the building with the city at ground level, creating a new street frontage on Garden Road, transparent and welcoming ground floor spaces, and enhancing and extending the landscaped grounds to incorporate a public tai chi area. At the tower’s base is a sequence of four-storey high arches intersected by a podium, and a vehicle ramp, which is a distinctive fe… continue

Having an over ground footprint of approximately 7.280 square metres the new construction with 245 rooms on seven to ten floors is a solitaire. The tower part with 36 metres height is an urban dominant complemented by a lower part having 26 metres height. The underground floor provides a parking with 15 parking lots. The U-shaped footprint allowed integrating a representative inner court yard. While the façade of the ground floor and the first floor is mainly glazed and structured by pillars and pilasters, it is clad with the shell limestone Kohlplatter Muschelkalk from the second floor upwards. Fluted pilasters going over two floors give the building its vertical structure. Roomhigh narrow windows are placed irregularly within th… continue

Boiler house Libčice nad Vltavou by Atelier Hoffman | Industrial buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/atelier-hoffman-boiler-house-libcice-nad-vltavou/5105984 Wed, 16 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Brownfield (Drátovny a Šroubárny n.p. industrial estate) was established in 1872 by the Prague Association of Ironworks near the Prague – Dresden railway line by the Vltava river. It significantly influenced the development of the nearby municipalities and has left a considerable mark on this locality, giving it a unique character and ambience. In the past, more than 1600 people lived and worked here; nowadays it is less than a hundred, even though there is almost everything here: housing, railway, technical infrastructure, river, grown trees and, first and foremost, genius loci. The boiler house stands next to the already renovated Coal-Grinding Mill to which it was connected for operational reasons. It represents another important project of the gradual regeneration of the entire estate. The buildings in question are among the oldest parts of the estate and help to create its genius loci. That is why we made the decision to treat the project with respect and consideration, to… continue

Substantial by goCstudio | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/gocstudio-substantial/5105983 Wed, 16 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Seattle-based goCstudio, an architecture studio known for its innovative work and collaborations with artists and craftsmen, has completed the new office expansion for Substantial which occupies the upper floor of a historic building in the heart of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Substantial is a digital product studio that was founded in 2006 and moved into the 100-year-old building in 2013. goCstudio was brought on board to redesign the entire 14,000-square-foot upper floor of the building to create an open plan office that would accommodate the growing needs of the company. The upper floor at the corner of Pine and Broadway was the home of two office spaces of very different character. Substantial inhabited the smaller of the two and readily took the opportunity to expand into the rest of the floor when the previous tenant moved. The challenge was to create a cohesive open plan work space which retained the feel of the original Substantial space and would maximize the existing… continue

Grasshopper Studio and Courtyard by Wittman Estes Architecture + Landscape | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/wittman-estes-architecture-landscape-grasshopper-studio-and-courtyard/5105982 Wed, 16 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Seattle housing shortage has increased pressure on single family neighborhoods to provide more usable space on limited single family lots. Normative new housing demolishes existing small buildings and replaces them with ‘Seattle Modern Boxes’ that maximize building size and density within zoning setbacks. Grasshopper Studio and Courtyard offers an alternative density called courtyard urbanism. Maintaining the small footprint of a 1940s house, a multifunctional studio was added along the rear alley. The resulting interstitial space formed a private terrace open to the sky. This courtyard urbanism tripled the usable square footage of the site by blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor space. A central Silk tree provides dappled shade in summer. The illusion of a much larger property is created through ‘borrowed landscape’ from adjacent trees and sky above.   Inspired by ancient Chinese south facing courtyard housing, the central paved terrace is a protected private area… continue

Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center by LMN Architects | Concert halls https://www.architonic.com/en/project/lmn-architects-federal-way-performing-arts-and-event-center/5105981 Wed, 16 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 SEATTLE — The Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center (PAEC) puts cultural arts at the heart of urban vitality, establishing a core identity and focal point for a rapidly growing, richly diverse community. This multi-functional 46,013-square-foot center and adjacent civic park are positioned to catalyze ongoing development and investment in the city for years to come, ensuring Federal Way’s vibrant future in the region.

Fashion is an eternal topic, and it is also a manifestation of characteristic. Coco Chanel said, "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." Through a new understanding of fashion, the designers used the principle of "less is more" to interpret a different kind of fashion. The whole space is unified with concise, smooth and fluent lines running through the interior, bringing a refreshing and natural breath. The minimalist furniture reflects the wisdom of design and humanistic spirit everywhere. By thinking differently, the designers embedded a tea table into the sofa, and applied irregular cabinets which have graceful arcs. The storage design is another highlight, the cabinets of the living room, the bed of the study room and the TV wall of the bedroom and others are ingenious. <b>Zen abstracts oriental charm|7B Show Flat</b> With a building area o… continue

Key Center Lobby Reposition by SkB Architects | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/skb-architects-key-center-lobby-reposition/5105979 Wed, 16 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 No longer merely pass-through spaces, lobbies have become destinations in their own right; hotelesque settings suitable for impromptu meetings and alternative work places for building tenants. Following the purchase of the 23-story Key Center, the new building owners quickly determined the need to update the common areas of the building which had grown tired since the building’s completion in 2000. To stay competitive in the market for tenants, a redesign of the guest and tenant experience was initiated to entice potential tenants, give existing tenants a reason to stay, and to realign the building within the marketplace. The existing lobby, a sprawling 8,100-square-foot series of contiguous spaces, lacked definition; seating was uncomfortable, and there was little reason to linger any longer than necessary. Transforming the space required reimagining how the space could be used. A survey of building tenants revealed an interest in alternative casual meeting and work spaces. The de… continue

Anchored by a weathered cedar clad bedroom wing, a bold concrete cantilever projects the living and dining into the dense forest and toward the view. A broad flat roof hovers above the living areas, allowing access to the forest canopy, and creating the feeling that one is sitting outdoors amidst the trees. Small apertures penetrate the exterior of the bedroom volume, while one larger opening at the master bath provides the ritual of bathing within the forest. An ipe deck slips from inside the kitchen into an open meadow to the south, separated only by large, sliding glass doors extending the sense of interior directly to the outdoors. A balance of clean lines and natural materials, this modest retreat is a welcome sanctuary from urban living. mw works architecture + design: Eric Walter, Steve Mongillo, Suzanne Stefan continue

Qingdao Wanda Victoria Bay Xifeng Bridge by PT Landscape | Bridges https://www.architonic.com/en/project/pt-landscape-qingdao-wanda-victoria-bay-xifeng-bridge/5105977 Mon, 14 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The concept of Xifeng Bridge is the spread-open wings of a phoenix, which is an auspicious bird and a symbol of peace and harmony. The ancients believed that phoenix would fly over if the world is in peace and prosperity. The oracle of "Feng" is like the oracle of wind, meaning the omnipresent and spiritual power of wind."Huang" is pronounced like the "Emperor" in Chinese, meaning the supreme power. Therefore, phoenix is also the symbol of Chinese imperial power, and is usually paired with dragon, which is a symbol of lucky and harmony. In the choice of colors, red and wood have been combined in the Xifeng Bridge. Red symbolizes energy, vitality, willpower, fire and power, while wood symbolizes calm and warm, giving an intimate feeling to people of returning to nature. The combination of polyline shape and red and wood material creates a simple, clean, conformable and stylish space atmosphere. As for the paving design, simple yet stylish dark gray and light gray granite are blend… continue

House Philipp by Philipp Architekten | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/philipp-architekten-house-philipp/5105976 Mon, 14 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The challenge of House Philipp was primarily determined by the striking location on a small mountain ridge, offering a splendid distant view to the north. To meet this specific situation, the cube of the main house was completely glazed with frameless windows. In this way, the fantastic surroundings and the desire for living in total harmony with nature as well as the longing for sun and light could be paid tribute to. There is a cube placed in this glass box as a key element, completely panelled with Elm Wood. It contains both the kitchen and the staircase and at the same time it forms the static backbone for the attic placed on it.  It's amazing how the cantilevered top floor seems to float above the fully glazed ground floor. It is characterized by a long hallway running across the entire width of the house, used for playing games. It features almost 15 meters of built-in closet and therefore provides generous storage space for everything a large family needs. Another useful devi… continue

MDO, the architects selected to take on this mantle, have addressed these conditions with a deliberate and exaggerated exploration of form, lighting and circulation. The practice has taken the cinematic expression of film noir and applied its heightened sense of drama to the atmosphere within to create a sequence of contrasting spaces that read as a montage of screenshots from a film reel. With work of this nature, the architectural theory of Tschumi, especially the 1976 Screenplays project, is never far away and many of the formal strategies employed by MDO directly reference the parallels with screen editing and the time-space nature of arch… continue

Shekou Sea World Culture and Arts Center is just a shelter in town from complexity and into beauty. The building highlights openness and connectivity, so that people, space and nature can have quiet dialogues. The lighting coincides with them to hide among buildings and landscapes to give off soundless beauty. GD (GD-LIGHTINGDESIGN) practices simplicity all through to have all the lighting hidden among spatial levels, interfaces and constructs, creating an effect of landscape changing with every step among mountains and waters. Except for part of the floor-lamps for guiding, the overall façade lighting emphasizes artistic conception instead of depiction and outlining, echoing with the architectural style of plainness and low profile.

Then, home must be that only island floating on it. It is the place where you treasure the collectibles discovered, and keep all the joys and tears you have experienced during the voyage. You may also bring back a person who is willing to spend the rest of the life with you. Our designer Thomas Xie was invited to lead his team for a renovation of a one-hundred-year-old house in Guangzhou, in order to achieve the finest home-living experience. In the meantime, he wanted to evoke the family’s treasurable memory, as well as to re-narrate the memory in a more lively way.

Located in Foz do Douro, Porto. The project aimed to enhance the unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean, increasing the permeability between the interior and exterior, through wide windows with full opening. The intensive use of the wood in the interior floors and ceilings and in the exterior walls and floors was based on a nautical inspiration provided by the location. The apartment has two floors and the program foresaw a social area, a kitchen and two bedrooms, the shape and layout of all interior spaces has been modified. The two bedrooms were placed on the lower floor and the social area on the top floor with open view to the sea. The social area was modeled with three spaces: the living room, the kitchen and the balcony. The division between the living room and the kitchen was realized with shutters, allowing a total opening between the two spaces, making them when desired an open space. The separation between the room and the balcony was made t… continue

Oiselle Flagship Store by goCstudio | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/gocstudio-oiselle-flagship-store/5105970 Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Oiselle is a well established Seattle company with a close knit community of dedicated athletes. The project brief proposed an interesting challenge; how to create a small but flexible flagship store that would simultaneously accommodate a seasonally changing selection of apparel and accessories as well as becoming a ‘club house’ of sorts for Oiselle's running community. The space needed to welcome running meets, marathon watch parties, and athlete signings while still functioning as a retail store. The solution came by way of four major design elements - the Theatre Fly, the Haberdashery desk, the Plinko Wall, and the Hero Wall. These elements would seamlessly work together to transform the existing shell into a multi-functional space. The north, east and south walls are materially tied together with a maple plywood, both as a wall finish, cabinetry, and custom display wall system (Plinko Wall). The Theatre Fly is the main mechanism by which the store transforms to host large g… continue

04 Mcgunnigle Shack by Mishack | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mishack-04-mcgunnigle-shack/5105969 Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Inspired by their deep love of mid-century architecture and in particular The Kaufmann House in Palm Springs by Richard Neutra the owners came across mishack and saw a kindred spirit. They stayed a weekend in the first mishack, fell in love with the concept and a project was born. The conceptual framework for the project was the result of two main key drivers. Spatially the layout needed to be able to adapt as the needs of this family of two adults and 3 young children changed over time. In time the parents will build over the rear carport to create their separate retreat and handover the main house to the growing brood. The shack characterizes simple easy flow layouts with seamless integration of main indoor and outdoor areas to allow easy expansion and enable multiplicity of uses depending on climate, activity or event. Secondly, it needed to a have the spirit of a mid-century aesthetic in order to align with but not mimic the clients keen love for the infamous Kaufmann House a… continue

Area Three Art Museum by CUN Design | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/cun-design-area-three-art-museum/5105968 Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Louis Kahn has said that if you fill your mind with something that does not belongs to you, they would never stay in your brain; you would forget them, and you would lose the awareness of defining your self-worth. His spirit in the architecture has been summarized by John Lobell in the book Between Silence and Light. In my point of view, Louis Kahn has found a calm answer for each question he asked in architecture. He never went with the flow but thought more about design and himself. As a designer, the most important thing is to think beyond the box and create new possibility, not always stay stereotyped or even duplicate work from others. Every time I met a space, for me, it always means a start of breaking boundaries, which appears more as a status of keeping self-breakthrough and the story created behind the status. The design method applied on this space, however, acts as the medium conveying mood and narrative. Then how do we break the rules? One of the architect Cui Shu’s… continue

A Space Cut by Light by Feeling design | https://www.architonic.com/en/project/feeling-design-a-space-cut-by-light/5105967 Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 As soon as your eyes are open, your sensory organs get in touch with the light. In the morning, the light enters inside when you open the curtain, and this is the moment when you become excited. Biology has explicated that a sense of excitement can trigger the release of dopamine, and an enough amount of dopamine in the workplace could enable people to pleasantly finish their day's work. The owner of this project is a research company in medicine and health industry. It is well known that scientific research is a relatively boring and rigorous work, and people who do such work must maintain a highly focused state. Considering from the characteristics of this industry, we decided to combine the physiological reaction that excitement secretes dopamine into the design, and extend the excited feeling in the morning to the work space, therefore, our goal was to design a space cut by light. A space that is less than 250 square meters is very small for planning a multi-functional workin… continue

The original architecture was a quadrangle courtyard commercial building with the characteristics of houses in the Republican period. Compared with residential houses, the houses here are bigger and higher. There is a row of arched doors and windows on the south along the street, and two-story houses on the north. Before the renovation, the housing structure was completely rebuilt; with the courtyard there were no doors, windows or walls, but exposed rough wooden structure beams. It is said that it was a brothel in the Republican period, then transformed into a bakery after the foundation of China, and later was left unused after the reconstruction. In the future, the building will be a complex for public activities and living. Therefore, while improving the quality of construction and infrastructure, this renovation focused on creating experience in par… continue

Really Taste by Bloom Design | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bloom-design-really-taste/5105963 Wed, 09 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Really Taste restaurant is located in the fashionable and modern Shenzhen Bay Technology and Ecology Park. The client hoped Bloom Design could design a restaurant that is popular online and loved by young people, so as to reflect Really Taste's new business concept of combining the new Cantonese cuisine with mini pub. After the market research, Bloom Design decided to find the spiritual core from the perspective of emotional cognition. Aesthetic perception will not be independent from the emotional memory of the past. Therefore, in addition to reconceptualize its functional presentation, the design needs to consider its emotional connection with the original memory. Nowadays, urban people are increasingly yearning for a return to nature. We hope that the whole space will be more plain in vision, which will remind people of the healthy and natural brand attributes of the brand Really Taste. We created a glass water curtain at the entrance, which functioned as a space partition, t… continue

When enlisted to design Amano Pasta, DesignAgency was challenged to design both a model for hospitality venues in the station and a flagship for the growing brand. Amano delights passersby with a 20 foot long window framing animated views of chefs producing fresh pasta – the restaurant’s best advertisement. The interiors of the 2,600 square foot space blend inspiration from classic Italian bakeries and pasta factories with the sleek elements that give the restaurant a contemporary feeling.

This plot, situated on the edge of a nature reserve, best fitted these criteria. The terrain was initially an untouched piece of dune with the typical vegetation running through it. The dune followed the street border from the bottom right to the upper left. From the start it was clear for the design team that it had to be preserved and that the house should become a part of it. The premise of the project was the relationship between dwelling and nature. The entrance is located on the side of the house. The inner street gives acces to the front doors of the ground and first floor. The other windows are calculated perforations which provide natural morning and evening light apart from perspective and direction at the end of each corridor. Half embedded, the house reveals itself bit by bit. A stroll through the garden, around the house, is the only way to get insight into the wa… continue

Black Soul by Alex Xie | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/alex-xie-black-soul/5105959 Tue, 08 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Speaking of black, white, gray, there are always associated with "sexlessness". Actually, it is a walking aphrodisiac. The condensation of black, pureness of white, coordination of gray, a deeper desire is hidden in the interaction of the three, making space like a cold and hot poem. A modern space in strong sense of design reveals the cold wall in darkness; the bark without any treatment maintains a natural texture, showing the original beauty. All materials have their own emotions and memories. It is very important for designers to make skillful application of each kind of emotional memory in space. A touch of casual yellow reveals conciseness and warmth; the sun casts on the Togo chair, lazy and full of fun; the irregular blocks of natural wood flooring adds a lot of fun to the space. Breeze blows white shutters, like the caress of the girl, revealing a trace of ambiguous tone, the huge glass windows perfectly presents the green world.

Before the renovation, it was a school history museum, but the original interior space was too old to be used for modern teaching. On the occasion of the academy's 100th anniversary in 2018, a series of adjustments were made inside the campus, then this architecture was transformed to a multi-function hall, which is now mainly used as an art exhibition hall for daily teaching, meanwhile, it can be a place to hold different activities, such as large meetings and performances for teachers and students. The transformation idea is like "space sketch"—on the basis of the existing building spatial relation, the designers used concise forms and simple materials to "paint" the indoor interface, so as to meet the requirement of making it become a ritual and flexible gathering place for teac… continue

Architects from Valencia’s d’Estudio devised and executed the interior. What characterises Farmacia Sud is an open floor plan that includes a private and undisturbed back office with easy access and a clear view of the pharmacy.

The set-up includes a multi-functioning partition that can accommodate all requirements and amenities. In close collaboration with GRID System ApS, d’Estudio used a partition with shelves for display, solid panels for privacy and transparent panels for a clear view and sound absorption. “GRID allowed us to easily play with their modules and surfaces to decide where we wanted to exhibit or hide products.” – Gabi Ladaria, d’Estudio By merging great design… continue

The works included adding a new master bedroom suite on top of the kitchen and living wing. The new addition opened up city views from the elevated position of the bedroom and terrace.

This is a contradiction to the reality of the 260 tons of granite which make up the building’s skin. The use of materiality and detailing also provides a similar contradiction in the form. The natural texture and irregularity of the split-faced material blurs the hard lines of the stacked rectilinear building. While the building is strong it sits quietly in its surroundings. The use of three types of granite unifies the external and internal spaces. While all the materials are all substantial, when used together, there is evenness through the house. In order for this to work, the architectural detailing was integrated with fine craftsmanship by the builders and stone masons. Working together, we were able to create subtle variation in the materials and intricate details where slight change finish makes the… continue

Located in the middle of piazza Castello in Milan, the project was conceived as an opportunity to re-think about the traditional setting of the urban fabric and to recover its values in the city of tomorrow. The key features of the projects – lightness, brightness, careful use of resources, eliminating the boundaries between interior and exterior, between natural and artificial spaces - were outlined in a balanced relationship between the elements of earth and air. This relationship was thus figured out by two horizontal layers, parallel to each other. The lower section, at ground level, consisted of a rust colored expanded clay platform, made by Laterlite, which set a dialogue with the brick walls of the Sforza Castle. It included two pedestrian crossing and it was almost entirely covered by herbs: a sort of b… continue

They imagined their traditional creative team clusters, typically designated in discrete groups, evolve to a more flexible organization wherein team members could move freely between open ended and unassigned seats, allowing them to gather in groups as needed. This approach was made possible by the simple fact that most of the employees worked on laptops, stationary workstations are now a rarity in their office. KOS architects reasoned that in order for a fluid and collaborative work environment to function all spatial cues suggesting division and vertical hierarchy be removed and replaced with a horizontal egalitarian spatial configuration; one where all members of the creative team, from the receptionists, executive assistants, designers, graphic designers, client services personnel, copywriters, and creative directors, sat at one table.

The building is 30 metres high and its eight floors offer parking space for about 1.000 cars. The car park is situated on the ring road A10 and the Zuidas, Amsterdam’s business district. What makes the building remarkable is the fact that the first floor is not just for parking cars, but can also be used as a flexible space for conventions and exhibitions. When the RAI does not need the car park, the building can function as a public parking space. Benthem Crouwel Architects has been supervisor of the entire RAI complex since 1989.

Several very small existing windows and doors were facing the yard that impeded the parents’ desire to spend copious amounts of time outdoors with their children tending the garden, chicken coop, and landscaping. The family sought to live seamlessly between the interior and exterior. The proposed kitchen, family room, office, and master suite were designed to open the home to the outdoors. A direct view from the kitchen, over the family room, and onto the rear yard allows the family to stay engaged with one another over the course of the day. Natural daylight is brought deep into the existing home with large panes of glazing at the rear elevation, as well as, more discrete skylights and slot windows towards the center of the building.

Blossoms of tulip-like flowers defne the lamp and disclose their crystalline chalices. Glass is the protagonist, the quintessential messenger of light. Thanks to the dimmable LED lamps hidden behind the chalices, light is diffused in a natural way and projected by the copperplated signature flower at the heart of the blossoms. This geometric motif becomes a characteristic pattern that multiplies itself along the edge of each chalice. To complete the picture, playful floral reflections dance around the room evoking a touch of spring indoors. Studio Edward van Vliet continue

Cumulus Resort Airport Hotel by Fyra | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/fyra-cumulus-resort-airport-hotel/5105942 Wed, 02 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A hotel for busy air travellers Interior Architects Fyra redesigned the interior of the Cumulus Resort Airport Hotel in its entirety. An innovative hotel concept was created – a hotel next to the Helsinki Airport with solutions designed for the needs of flight passengers. The management at the Cumulus Resort Airport Hotel realised a few years ago that something had to be done with the hotel: the interior solutions were no longer up to par with the requirements of air travellers. The project was put out to tender. Fyra – a Finnish interior design company set up in 2010 by four women – won the tender. It is evident that the new interior concept of the Cumulus Resort Airport Hotel features the same logic that guides Fyra in every project: each solution needs to respond to a genuine need. There is no “decorating” just for the sake of it. “We wanted to put emphasis on details that truly bring additional value to people”, says Emma Keränen, Interior Architect at Fyra. New innovative r… continue

Kennedy Town Swimming Pool by Farrells | Indoor swimming pools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/farrells-kennedy-town-swimming-pool/5105941 Wed, 02 May 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The second and final phase of the Kennedy Town Swimming Pool, designed by Farrells, opened on 7 February. It includes two new indoor heated pools, measuring 50 and 25 metres’ length respectively, as well as a jacuzzi. The swimming pool’s first phase, comprising a 50 metre outdoor pool and an outdoor leisure pool, opened to the public in May 2011. The swimming pool’s completion is the capstone of the Kennedy Town MTR station project. The original site chosen for Kennedy Town Station was the Forbes Street Playground. But construction would affect a number of 120-year-old Banyan trees growing on historic stone walls. To protect the trees, the station box was shifted eastward, onto Smithfield and the site of the former Kennedy Town Swimming Pool. A new pool had to be opened before the existing one could be demolished. The site chosen was a surface car park that boasted an uninterrupted sea view but had lain derelict since the land was reclaimed in the 1990s. To draw residents to this… continue

The Auditorium is used for a variety of musical and dramatic performances and school community functions, and features undulating timber-clad walls that are both visually striking and acoustically functional. A generous lobby and multi-level atrium with a major interconnecting staircase are characterised by daylight, creating a learning environment that is connected to the grounds of the College. Conceived as a place to perform, rehearse, discuss, teach and learn, the centre is a vital element of the cultural life and identity of PLC. Specialist music rehearsal spaces with 8-metre-high ceilings together with smaller studio spaces and classrooms will inspire state of the art teaching and purpose-built learning environments for a new generation of musicians and actors at PLC.

This is of vital importance that federal buildings represent Switzerland abroad. The commitment of the BBL to give a very high value to architectural design besides being cost and schedule sensitive is very much appreciated by us architects. The Swiss consulate general in Mumbai was renovated due to new definition of its functions and services. As the visa department was centralized in New Delhi, the available space was allocated to the entities Swiss Business Hub, Swissnex and Switzerland Tourism. It is the strategy of the FDFA to redefine the consular services with these participants and to create a uniform and representative environment. The project of the consulate general in Mumbai was considered a pilot project to redefine the idea of the Swiss Consulate.

How can it operate ‘learn-to-swim’ programs while at the same time run a 1000-person international swim meet? In 2012, UBC sent more swimmers to the London Olympic Games than anywhere in Canada, and had the most successful swim team in the country. Meanwhile the explosive market-driven expansion of the burgeoning Campus Community created a fast growing youth and family. The requirements: a high performance training / competition venue and community aquatic centre within a single facility while engaging the public realm and contributing to campus life. This led to a 2-sided pool hall divided by a ‘Y’ shaped columns and a continuous skylight bisecting the building. In section, a translucent screen creates a luminous barrier between the two spaces, reflecting abundant sunlight into the ‘leisure’ side, while providing the required controlled and balanced light into the ‘… continue

The landmark hotel recently invited DesignAgency to upgrade its interiors; to redesign the lobby, dining rooms and bars to broaden appeal to both hotel and outside guests. Drawing inspiration from the Fairmont brand’s reputation for luxury and service, as well as themes of European chic and alpine glamour, DesignAgency redesigned the plush Axe Bar-Lounge, the elegant Choux Gras Brasserie Culinaire and the laid back Le Comptoir Cuisine du Marché, to create an array of exciting hospitality environments. The lobby sets the scene with playful, mid-century-inspired furnishings in earthy tones, warm lighting and a concierge desk inspired by retro steamer trunk luggage. Upscale and cosmopolitan, the Choux Gras Brasserie Culinaire is reminiscent of a 1930s Parisian brasserie, with generous cobalt velvet booths, dark wood walls, and pill-shaped… continue

Created from a collection of contiguous properties within a single block in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, the design puts in place the last phase of a larger vision and master plan developed by the client. Rather than consider the eclectic mix of buildings and empty space an impediment to development, the owner recognized the value of the structures’ hard-won patina and unique character. By integrating a diverse, mutually-supportive combination of activities that includes living, working, and retail in one contiguous array of spaces, the development results in a village within a village. The design solution knits these disparate properties together via new pedestrian corridors and connections between old and new space to create a truly mixed-use project. Challe… continue

GLF Headquarters by Oppenheim Architecture + Design | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/oppenheim-architecture-design-glf-headquarters/5105933 Mon, 30 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Set on the banks of the Miami River, at the junction of Overtown and Little Havana, this modern office complex was commissioned as the U.S. headquarters for international engineering and construction outfit GLF Construction Corporation. The building was designed with simplicity in mind, featuring large floor plates that allow user flexibility and evoke the feeling of open space. Inside, the program includes office and studio space, conference rooms, lounges, balconies and common areas that maximize both interior and exterior views. GLF Headquarters’ form draws inspiration from its adjacent context and scale - citing both the inherent industrial and nautical overtones of the location. The resulting 4-story structure resembles a stack of shipping containers – a common spectacle visible from the project site – strategically arranged to create large unique volumes and sheltered spaces that accommodate various uses. The elegant, yet simple, exterior is the perfect amalgamation of raw st… continue

The light-filled space creates opportunities for independence and provides people across a range of fields with the ability to connect and collaborate. The sixth floor, 5,017-square-foot space consists of a large co-working area (with back-of-house support amenities) and a lounge that can be completely separated for use as a private event room. Glass-fronted conference and phone rooms are designed to reinforce the collaborative spirit while providing privacy. Office furnishings include a mix of simple standardized pieces (long work tables and seating) as well as an eclectic assortment of casual seating. The lounge features a wood- and mirror-faced bar with stools, sofas, and occasional furniture. The lounge adjoins a west-facing terrace punctuated with a fire pit for cool-weather socia… continue

The modest 2,738-square-foot office space is located on the fourth floor of a six-story, mixed-used building in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.   The aesthetic is decidedly minimal—simple workstations set within a semi-raw space defined by polished concrete floors, unpainted steel bracing and columns, exposed metal ceiling—and intended to celebrate the architectural expression of the space itself. In addition to workstations, the office includes two conference spaces (one essentially a part of the larger office and another private option), as well as a special entertainment area, symbolically raised two steps above the workstation level. The resulting spatial compression created by the slightly tighter floor-to-ceiling height, creates a cozy setting in which to relax. Wood flooring, in contrast to the po… continue

TABLEAU is the brainchild of Julius Værnes Iversen who runs Copenhagen’s popular BB Blomster flower stores with his brother Magnus. “With TABLEAU Julius wanted to take flower selling to the next level and open the best flower shop in the world where flowers are still the main game, but the space is super-cool and inspiring,” says David Thulstrup, principal and founder of the Copenhagen based design and architecture studio. Iversen gave Thulstrup a freehand to design the gallery-like interior and everything in it, including architectural podiums for displaying floral arrangements like art installations, a growth rack for pot plants that doubles as a light sculpture and atmospheric overhead lighting. In keeping with TABLEAU’s theatrical brief, Thulstrup… continue

The footprint occupied by the building is replaced with a roof garden that further enhances the experience of the beach with spectacular views. The focus point of the project’s concept is the activation of the building’s roof as an integral part of Holmen beach recreation area. The grassy roof slopes towards the south and provides an uninterrupted view over Oslo fjord’s isles and reefs. <b>Passive House</b> By employing Passive House methodology a long term vision is established for energy use. The methodology encompasses construction methods, insulation and building form. Furthermore, energy reuse is stressed, especially with regards to water heating.

We wanted to create a comfortable, relaxing space for the owners who lead very active and busy lifestyles. The apartment is minimalist but in a way that ensures the comfort of use. For the needs of the project, we designed kitchen furniture, wardrobes, a dining table, a bench, a coffee table, a dresser, a bed, bedside tables, a dresser in the bathroom, and a child's and guest's room equipment.

Its rebirth as a market hall required two distinct aspects: embracing the industrial charm and reinterpreting market typology. The market structure begins in the middle of the hall, where the existing brick walls serve as a frame. This creates an exciting contrast between a historical structure and modern architecture.

For the team, the project presented a particular set of challenges: how to connect the property’s past and present in a way that matches its current function, reflects the Gaga brand, and ensures commercial success? Gaga’s venue, a former Christian girls’ school, is illustrative of a phenomenon that although not unique to Shanghai, distinguishes the metropolis from others in China. That is, the ongoing dialogue between the cutting edge contemporary, and a richly storied past. This past century has witnessed an architectural narrative that has diverged from colonial grandeur, to the skyscrapers, shopping malls and lifestyle hubs of now. Increasingly, Shanghai’s monuments of bygone eras are being reclaimed and reappropriated for the aspirations of today. Beautifully illustrating precisely this exchange is Changning Villa:… continue

The Hangar at Kenmore Town Square by Graham Baba Architects | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/graham-baba-architects-the-hangar-at-kenmore-town-square/5105915 Wed, 25 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The 4,600-square-foot Hangar and 24,000-square-foot Town Square provide a year-round focal point and a symbolic living room for the city. Located in the heart of downtown, the complex touches upon the primal notions of gathering, creating a venue for passive and active recreation while ensuring a home for nature in the rapidly growing community. The Hangar, conceived as a pavilion, is designed to morph depending upon weather or functional requirements. Simple and large, the space opens to the Town Square via a 24-foot-wide by 16-foot-tall bi-fold window wall. When open, the large roof overhang provides protection from rain and sun, and enables parents easy access to their kids playing in the adjacent 14,000-square-foot plaza. The plaza features a fountain and heated rocks to encourage people to linger in inclement weather. The inverted roof lifts up from the building to gesture toward the park and adjacent thoroughfare, with the residual gap between building and roof becoming a dramati… continue

Visionair by Labics | Installations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/labics-visionair/5105914 Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Labics at Fuorisalone 2018 in Milan presents Visionair, an installation that insists on reversing the point of view. Conceived as a prototype, this work continues the research of the architecture studio on the theme of the relationship between space and structure. Marco Cappelletti's photographs document the intervention. The idea behind the project stems from a reflection on the theme of reversal of the point of view, concept used by the brand Elica to describe the paradigm shift underlying the recent experiments on aspiring hobs. The installation is a visible object inside the Ca‘ Granda, a small architecture that immediately communicates its presence; a structure that, when approaching, reveals itself, letting perceive the presence of a space inside, an unusual space that invites the visitor to enter a surreal and upside-down dimension of reality. The act of crossing a threshold, of entering an interior space, alludes to the imaginary of the home, which welcomes and prot… continue

Oscillation Plates by David Derksen Design | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/david-derksen-design-oscillation-plates/5105913 Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 With gravity as the acting force, these plates are decorated by a pendulum. The patterns are a graphic representation of the oscillation of a pendulum, revealing a hidden pattern that exist in nature. The result is a play between the mathematical rules of the natural oscillation and the randomness of the human that initiates the swing of the pendulum. This combination makes each plate unique.

Glass House by Ofis Architekti | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ofis-architekti-glass-house/5105912 Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Initiated by Guardian Glass the glass house designed by OFIS arhitekti in collaboration with AKT ll structural engineers and Transsolar climate engineering creates comfortable living space with low energy consumption in the desert. Research The Glass House is a research prototype for a comfortable if elementary retreat in a tense juxtaposition with harsh surrounding environment. The project, initiated by Guardian Glass is challenging thermal and structural abilities of glass. Instead of focusing only in “a glass as a window element” the concept explored its advanced potentials, e.g. transparent but shading element, a thin but thermally efficient envelope that is also the sole structural support. This project is a response to the local, desert climate conditions. It is about both passive design and renewable energy generation. The building's footprint contains every element that makes life possible from energy production to waste water treatment, while maintaining a comfortable… continue

Kvadrat Showroom Copenhagen by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ronan-amp-erwan-bouroullec-kvadrat-showroom-copenhagen/5105911 Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The new Copenhagen flagship showroom marks the latest chapter in a long collaboration between Kvadrat and Bouroullec Studio. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have previously designed visionary products for Kvadrat such as Clouds, Ready Made Curtain, Roller Blinds, several textiles and a rug, as well as showrooms in Stockholm and the firm’s first showroom in Copenhagen. Erwan Bouroullec: “The concept we developed is focused on materiality, which is at the heart of the Kvadrat brand. For instance, the showroom aims to deliver total flexibility to create scenes with large pieces of textiles and rugs. Doing so provides a deep insight into the weave, weight, transparency and quality of each design.” Large windows flank three sides of the showroom, which provides panoramic views over an industrial harbour towards the centre of Copenhagen. Inside, two opposing rows of brick walls, topped by transparent glass screens, run parallel through the heart of the space. This layout creates a bright, a… continue

Flagship Boutique by MACH ARCHITEKTUR | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mach-architektur-flagship-boutique/5105910 Tue, 24 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Sternhagen is a Germany-based premium sanitary ware and bathroom fitting brand. As such, they are committed to offering high quality products that are artistically designed, yet engineered with cutting-edge materials and technologies. The perfect blend of fine art and flawless engineering – this is their competitive advantage. As a design-driven brand, they constantly innovate to create products with new technologies and designs worthy of the Sternhagen label. The Mumbai-based architect firm Opolis invited MACH to co-design the Sternhagen showroom in order to give it the European touch that Sternhagen deserves and requires to enter the Indian market with its first flagship showroom. A fruitful collaboration with Opolis resulted in a layout that is structured by five showroom-cubicles with bathroom interiors. These environments maintain the intimate atmosphere of a bathroom while simultaneously creating a floating and open space between the current five product lines. The cubicles ar… continue

Bloop coffee table by Regular Company | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/regular-company-bloop-coffee-table/5105909 Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The Bloop coffee table defies the paradox of weight and weightlessness, a concept further accentuated by the table’s leg placed off-centre. Its distinctive character is embodied in sculptural fluid transitions between interconnected parts, with soft-rounded edges, and refined, constructive details – a design language applied consistently throughout the entire solid wood furniture range made for Artisan. The Bloop coffee table collection has debuted at the IMM Cologne in January 2013, and has since been one of the bestsellers of the brand. The organic joint between the leg and the tabletop reinforces its stability, a design that allows only one slim, vertical element, highlighting the table's sophisticated character. Crafted from solid wood, Bloop's unconventional form was created by shifting the axis of rotation of its base, leg and top - thus defining the table’s proportions, and giving it a new balance point. The upward-rounded edges of both its base and top are made to app… continue

Instead of a dull list of technical requirements we received our brief one Saturday morning in the form of a full course brunch, where the chef laid out the whole menu to be served in the future bistro. This delicious introduction helped us understand the identity of the food, the importance of its preparation and the complexity of the brunch ritual. Whilst discussing the food and the ingredients used, from eggs benedict to shakshuka, we conceptualised the project in relation to the menu. The food wasn’t concealing the ingredients, but rather disclosed them openly, so we unveiled the space in a similarly candid way: by stripping down the walls and ceiling, we unveiled the space’s history from underneath decades of plaster. The naked wal… continue

Smith House by Richard Meier & Partners Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/richard-meier-amp-partners-architects-smith-house/5105907 Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 2017 marked the 50th Anniversary of the completion of the iconic Smith House in Darien, Connecticut, and to commemorate this important occasion the Smith family and architectural photographer Mike Schwartz produced a new set of photographs of the home. The residence propelled Richard Meier’s career as an architect and it was the project that helped to define the architectural language and the design philosophy of Richard Meier & Partners Architects. Richard Meier comments: “I was working out of one room of a two-room apartment shortly after leaving the office of Marcel Breuer. One day I had a call from Carole Smith asking if I would be interested in designing a weekend house for her in Darien, Connecticut. She was looking for a young architect who would give full attention to her house. Soon thereafter, I went to look at the site she had purchased with her husband. They showed me a set of drawings for an unbuilt ranch-style house that had been designed for the previous landowner. I… continue

P+R Driebergen-Zeist by Groosman | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/groosman-p-r-driebergen-zeist/5105906 Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 As part of the redevelopment of the train station area of Driebergen-Zeist we designed the first energy neutral parking garage in the Netherlands with a high level of comfort and safety. By using timber slats and stone in gabion baskets on the façade, the building fits in with its location and its users experience the stunning surrounding landscape. Extra attention has been paid to the main entrance where the characteristic, playful application of timber slats is continued. The internal void ensures that all floors are visible and offers an overview. The recognisable road design provides logical routes for both driver and pedestrian.

Underground Parking Katwijk aan Zee by Royal HaskoningDHV | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/royal-haskoningdhv-underground-parking-katwijk-aan-zee/5105904 Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The new underground parking garage in Katwijk aan Zee is the result of a multifaceted commission granted to Royal HaskoningDHV by the Municipality of Katwijk. Royal HaskoningDHV is responsible for the architectural design of the underground parking and translated this design into a Building Quality Plan. Based on this Building Quality Plan, Ballast Nedam, in cooperation with ZJA, engineered the integral design (architectural, functional, structural and installation) for the realization of the parking garage. The Building Quality Plan includes detailed information, definitions, drawings and visualizations of the architectural design, the layout of the garage, the public entrances, the entrance‐ and exit ways for vehicles, the emergency exits, as well as the architectural design and guidelines of the signage (routing, orientation and identification). The architectural design of the parking garage builds forth on the Design of Katwijk’s Public Space, developed by OKRA Landscape Archite… continue

Union Chicken by DesignAgency | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/designagency-union-chicken/5105903 Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200 As the country’s busiest transit hub, Union Station hosts more than 300,000 daily commuters as well as visitors from the surrounding downtown areas, such as the fnancial, theatre and entertainment districts. In the midst of massive transformations, the station is poised to realize a new identity as both a transit hub and a vibrant civic and hospitality destination. DesignAgency was invited to create one of the station’s frst restaurants, Union Chicken. While dining in railway stations is common in many other cities, Toronto’s station previously only had fast food and takeout offerings. As a result, DesignAgency’s challenge in designing Union Chicken was to establish an environment that would entice both the station’s visitors and beyond, making both the train station and Toronto’s downtown dining landscape more interesting and inviting. From the corridor, Union Chicken presents a warm, aged character that seems to have evolved with time. The entire length of its façade is compose… continue

Located in the coast of São Paulo (Brazil), Serra do Guararu, the house opens up to its surroundings - the Atlantic Forest - keeping a constant dialogue between the interior of the house and its exterior exuberant landscape. Exploring the advantages of its lot accentuated slope, the house was raised to the tree tops, providing all main spaces a full view of the beach. To facilitate relocation, due to the steeply sloped site, a light and easily assembled construction method was chosen. A prefabricated cumaru wooden structure (measuring 4.5 x 3.75 m), profiled by a glass frame, was attached to a 5 meters tall concrete base. The house program was divided into three levels. The first level consists of the garage where the concrete base covers it while giving shape to the narrow pool on the upper plane. This concrete volume then serves as a support for the wooden structure… continue

Architectural Restyling of a Villa in Bulciago (Lecco), Italy. The setting is the Brianza area, Italy, on the hills around Lecco. Here the building landscape is clearly marked by 1970s residential construction methodologies. The building restoration remodelled both distribution and composition, however maintaining the local character. This project grants a new lease of life to the originally horizontal duplex building through a new vertical dimension, which offers both units individual panoramic views and aspects of the garden, at one time limited to one or the other apartment. One ground floor apartment facing north east and, on the south west, a second, larger apartment on multiple levels alternate and develop, embracing both ground and first floor.
