New architecture projects by Architonic https://www.architonic.com/en/project-feed New architecture projects by Architonic https://www.architonic.com/en/project-feed https://image.architonic.com/arc_black.jpg en Mon, 21 Aug 2017 21:48:47 +0200 Public Transport Terminal Breda by Koen van Velsen architecten | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/koen-van-velsen-architecten-public-transport-terminal-breda/5105077 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The public transport terminal in Breda, the Netherlands, is more than a train station. It is a new part of the city. An (inter)national train station and bus station, but also a varying diversity of other functions such as apartments, offices, retail, car parking on the roof of the building and internal and external bicycle parking, have been combined into one single complex. The public transport terminal is a spatial complex with a recognisable identity as a station, a meaningful and self-evident point of orientation in the city. The building has not been designed as a multifunctional complex containing a public transport interchange but as a station in which a substantial and complex program has been combined into a single strong recognisable form as an essential part of the city. The public transport terminal is the centre point of an ambitious urban development in which a former industrial area and marshalling yard is transformed into a vibrant new urban quarter. The complex continue

New Passenger Terminal at Franjo Tudman International Airport by Kincl | Airports https://www.architonic.com/en/project/kincl-new-passenger-terminal-at-franjo-tudman-international-airport/5105076 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 In 2008, an international architectural design competition was held to select the best project for the New Passenger Terminal at Franjo Tuđman International Airport Zagreb. In order to ensure architectural excellence, an international competition jury invited ten world-renowned architects together with ten acknowledged Croatian architects to participate, ultimately awarding first prize and commission to the entry designed by Croatian authors-architects Branko Kincl, Velimir Neidhardt and Jure Radić. The French concessionaire started building in 2013 executing the design delivered by authors-architects and design companies IGH Projektiranje d.o.o., Kincl d.o.o., Neidhardt arhitekti d.o.o. The new terminal complex opened in March 2017 as the 1st phase construction of 65.000 m2 serves up to 5 million passengers a year. The first phase site plan has 8 boarding bridges linked to the terminal building on the north side, and an arrival/ departure ramp with a viaduct on the south. The… continue

Aitoku Hoikuen by Kengo Kuma | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/kengo-kuma-aitoku-hoikuen/5105075 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Aitoku Hoikuen is located in a residential district of Saitama City. Aitoku is a Center for Early Childhood Education and Care, which combines nursery school and kindergarten, and it takes care of 150 children. In formulating the design, we assembled small houses to make a big 2-story house closer to a human townscape. Each roof is pitched differently in order to express natural sequence from the landscape of the town. The interior is made with wood and fabric, which can help to create a gentle and varied space.

New'R Building by Hamonic+Masson & Associés | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hamonic-masson-amp-associes-new-039r-building/5105074 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>A unique building in a strategic location</b> Composed of curved angles and surrounded by undulating balconies, New’R pays homage to Oscar Niemeyer as well as to the architecture of the 1970s French Riviera, (André Minangoy and Michel Marot’s “Marina Baie des Anges”, for example) and fnally the hedonistic fantasy of Miami Beach! Sensual and multi-directional, the building is located at a pivotal point between the ‘Mail Picasso’ and the new neighbourhood currently being developed alongside the rail infrastructure. Framing and capturing the existing location, New’R embraces the site and forms a new landscape. The building’s volume compliments the surrounding scales through its sculpted effect. The construction of intermediate landings creates a sequence within the volume and the piston-like morphology facilitates a graduated system of high-rise living. Its strategic position and impact on the site offer a range of interpretations depending on one’s proximity to the building, evoki… continue

Toranoko Nursery by Takashige Yamashita Office | Kindergartens / day nurseries https://www.architonic.com/en/project/takashige-yamashita-office-toranoko-nursery/5105073 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>A small nursery with a big roof.</b> This project is a small nursery in Yamanashi prefecture, Japan. The site offers a spectacular view of Mt. Fuji. With some houses and farms spread out in its neighborhood, it creates a peaceful, but at the same time, a bit deserted atmosphere. The client manages three elderly facilities at the site. They wanted to make a community space for the users of the facility and the local people in the middle of the site where it is surrounded by the three facility buildings. The idea was then developed and specified to create a lounge area for having a tea and a nursery to take care of the children in the local area. Located in the center of the enclosed site, the roofs are lightly positioned in various angles, opening towards all possible directions to allow physical and visual approach from anywhere. Gentle curvature of the roofs creates a sequence of scenery, dividing garden, lounge, lunchroom, nursing room and office, while the spaces are st… continue

New York Sweets pastry shop by Minas Kosmidis | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/minas-kosmidis-new-york-sweets-pastry-shop/5105072 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The famous pastry shop chain in Cyprus “New York Sweets” has decided to go through a radical rebranding. The brand has been established as a family business in 1986 and it still works in the same way. The main target of the company is to produce and sell a series of premium – mainly American sweets and pastries made of very high quality and fresh ingredients. The name of the company derives from the fact that their most popular products are mostly New York/American recipes. The rebranding had to incorporate a series of interventions, not only regarding the brand identity and image (logo – graphics etc.), but also the presentation of their exquisite products and more importantly the remodeling of the stores. At this moment, the company runs seven pastry shops in different locations/cities in Cyprus. The biggest shop of the chain, located in the island’s capital has been chosen as the first one to be remodeled and it would therefore operate as a pilot store for the new venture. T… continue

Clover House by MAD Architects | Kindergartens / day nurseries https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mad-architects-clover-house/5105070 Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 MAD architects have completed their first project in Japan, the Clover House kindergarten. Located in the small town of Okazaki, the school's setting boasts views of the paddy fields and mountains, characteristic of the Aichi Prefecture. The kindergarten was originally operated out of the old family home of siblings Kentaro and Tamaki Nara, which soon became too small and unfit for expanding their educational goals. The siblings desired to create a modern educational institution where children could feel as comfortable as they do in their own homes, allowing them to grow and learn in a nurturing setting. “It was important to create a kindergarten that felt like a home, and give the kids the best possible house to grow up in, one that promotes their learning and creativity,” stated Ma Yansong, founder and principal partner of MAD Architects. MAD was commissioned by the family to transform their old two-story family house into a fully developed educational institution. The transformat… continue

Namdeamun Office Building by Mecanoo | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mecanoo-namdeamun-office-building/5105069 Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Located next to the ancient southern gate to the city of Seoul, the Namdeamun Market is the oldest and largest market in South Korea. Since its beginnings as a government managed marketplace in 1414, it has become an important 24-hour destination for trade and a popular tourist attraction. The market’s history and regional traditions informed the design for a contemporary office building, connecting past and present. Maximising the land allocation, the slim 14-floor building sits elegantly on a corner plot opposite the market. Its restrained monochromatic appearance acts as a counterbalance to the colourful frenzy of the market’s nonstop activity. The role of the facades frames extends beyond decoration. It continuously creates different atmospheres, filtering incoming light and making shadows across the interior spaces. The relationship between the building and its surroundings reflects the passing of time, changing from day to night. During the day the facade material reflects the… continue

He gently descend to the first floor and begin dressing towards the company so as not to wake the sleeping wife and children. When the sky began to brighten, light started to pour out from the top light of the bedroom. As the morning gradually arrives, the room is filled with light. The wife will see the departure of his husband and start the day. After breakfast, when yoga of daily routine is done at the free corner on the second floor, she spend day and day centering on the first floor from cleaning, washing and dinner preparation. When the sun set, the husband came home and prepared for firewood for friends who came to gather at the weekends. Gradually the smell of dinner comes from the window next to the kitchen, surrounding the table. At night, the warm air warmed by the wood burning stove wraps the whole building and is slightly warm until the morning.

Waverley House by Porebski Architects | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/porebski-architects-waverley-house/5105067 Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The existing house was a three bedroom Californian bungalow with a lean-to at the rear in which the owners lived for a few years before the renovation. The brief was to make the living spaces more suitable for a young family by resolving the awkward layout and providing a better connection to the outside. The project was able to be passed through Council by a Complying Development Consent as it satisfied all the numerical values and the required codes. The design includes a new open plan living, dining and kitchen space opening onto the back garden and is a good study on how to maximise the northern light into an extension with an east-west orientation. The use of different volumes incorporating skylights and high-light windows allow sun filtration and makes the space interesting throughout the day. Cavity sliding doors allow a rumpus/media room off the living space to be opened up or closed off as desired. Porebski Architects continue

Charlotte Road by McLaren Excell | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mclaren-excell-charlotte-road/5105066 Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The building at no. 3 Charlotte Road has an interesting history. Like many of the streets around Shoreditch, it was built in the late nineteenth century as a merchant’s warehouse in the industrialised East End of London, and is arranged over three stories with cargo doors at first and second floor level. It served this purpose until it was sold off in the 1970s. Since then it has been used by two notable occupants who both left their mark on the place. The dance group Orbital used the building to record their music, converting the first floor into a sound-proofed recording studio. The building was subsequently bought by Charles Thompson, co-founder of the Stuckist Movement, who lived there and used the building as the headquarters for Stuckism International – an organisation promoting figurative painting over conceptual art. Interesting though the previous inhabitants were, the building had become badly neglected. It was cold, leaking in places, rot had set in on the joists and… continue

Parabola Paradiso by Il Hoon Roh | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/il-hoon-roh-parabola-paradiso/5105065 Wed, 16 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Parabola Paradiso is a lighting installation that includes chandeliers hung from the ceiling and floor light in a form of an arch. It is a visual interpretation of natural curve. On chandelier, hand woven fiber optic cables with beads are hung gracefully and form natural curves. As for the arch, it was also made by hanging strings of carbon fiber which formed natural curve. This curve was then set and hardened, turned upside down to show a perfect arch that mirrors the parabolas hanging above. Stainless cables and fiber optic cables are placed on top of the other with much tension, creating a moire effect. The combined effect of seeing together chandeliers hung in the air with parabolic curves together with repetitive arches on the ground gives viewers a sense of seeing a natural scenery.

Residence M by CHT Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/cht-architects-residence-m/5105064 Wed, 16 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The concept behind Residence M was influenced by some of the more significant architecture in Australasian history. The home reveals the unerring simplicity of Robin Boyd, the inventiveness of David McGlashan and has taken cues from House N by Sou Fujimoto Architects in Oita, Japan. Modernity, innovation and practicality have all lended a voice in the design of this residence, in which every challenge was met with a unique and thought-out design solution. Residence M sits on a small site, mandating an inventive approach that could maximise the yield. Unlike the customary introverted house surrounded by outdoor space, Residence M expands its walls to sit almost flush to the property boundaries, creating an unexpectedly big-small house that brings the outdoors inside through two internal courtyards. The home’s south- and south-west-facing courtyards are critical to the design in more ways than one. In order to function, the outdoor courtyards had to feel like an interior living space,… continue

Stereo D by Quadrangle | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/quadrangle-stereo-d/5105063 Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 As a high-tech media giant that produces stereoscopic content for top-grossing feature films, Stereo D - part of the Deluxe Entertainment Services Group - has been named one of the world’s most innovative companies. Building on its base in California and India, the company chose to expand its presence to Toronto, tapping into the city’s highly skilled digital artist talent pool. Settling in Liberty Village, a rapidly developing neighbourhood in the city’s west end, whose century-old industrial buildings have now been appropriated by creative and tech agencies, and a predominantly youthful demographic, the studio saw the advantage in the area’s live/work culture and with its proximity to transit and the entertainment, fashion and gallery districts. Occupying a portion of the former Canada Bread factory, a heritage-listed building from the early 1900s, the office design required the technical knowledge to efficiently convert the 45,000 sf space from industrial into a high-tech wo… continue

Holiday house f at Garda lake by bergmeisterwolf | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bergmeisterwolf-holiday-house-f-at-garda-lake/5105062 Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The existing building, the extension and the garden come together as one. Vertical sliding windows can be moved downward and disappear, transforming intimate into wide open spaces. A canopy becomes a house and then a canopy again. A terrace on the canopy can be reached through an outdoor stairway connecting the existing structure to the garden. Dyed concrete surfaces build a complementary relationship with the existing plastered stone façade. The extension drifts away from the existing building and comes to light through some interstitial spaces. The pool is located in the garden, between a lemon orchard and 100-year-old palm trees.

Stuttgart Airport Bus Terminal with Parking Garage by wulf architekten | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/wulf-architekten-stuttgart-airport-bus-terminal-with-parking-garage/5105060 Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Parking garage P14 is located directly adjacent to the Stuttgart Airport flight terminals. The new building comprises the ground-level Stuttgart Airport Bus Terminal (SAB) – a facility with 18 bus platforms – and above that, 6 car parking levels connected by a double-helix ramp. The parking levels offer a total of 1,560 parking spaces, including 3.0-meter-wide XL parking spaces on the first parking level, which allow drivers to park their cars with greater ease and to enter and leave them with greater comfort. The building dimensions result from the functional requirements for parking and for bus traffic, as the SAB serves not only local and regional transport but also many intercity bus lines. As a landmark from afar and due to its immediate proximity to the airport terminals and the state trade fair (Messe Stuttgart), the parking garage’s exterior has special significance. So the new building has been designed to be not only economical, but also technically and visually appealing.… continue

What floated up for us was a cable car station design and construction project, giving the project to us at that time produced quite a disturbance among the staid Shanghai architecture community. Qiandao Lake is a place rich in natural beauty. The lake was the inspiration for Guo Moruo’s noted poem “Three-Thousand Xizi,” in the poem Moruo writes “the Hangzhou islands are numerous/ the mountains gave up their height to become these islands/ since then their valleys have rolled in waves.” Our site at Qiandao faces the islands and is backed by mountains described in the poem. The water is clear like crystal; the islands nestle together in the lake before our site, the scene is heavenly… continue

Vienna Central Station by Theo Hotz Partner | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/theo-hotz-partner-vienna-central-station/5105057 Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Vienna’s new central station project is pivotal to the city’s transport policy as it enables trains to converge in a single location for the first time. The original master plan was overhauled in 2004 and the new version led to the development of an urban model for the station and its surroundings. This master plan envisaged a public transportation hub with a sculptural roof that would function as both a flagship urban project and a landmark of a district in the throes of change, with the station also providing the impetus for the further development of more sites and the creation of a new municipal park. The “Vienna Team” working group is managing the overall realisation of the new station, with the Hotz/Hoffmann-Wimmer team handling the architectural design. Theo Hotz Partner is responsible for the sculptural roof. Providing a clear iconic identity for the station, the roof comprises a folded plate structure that undulates rhythmically above the five platforms, defining striking… continue

Even troubled by life stress as well as the Fog days they still went ahead. While the longest time of a day people spend is in office. Elephant-Parade said that the power leads new communication era comes from continuously creative spirit. As it is a communication company which specializes in digital integration, openness and diversity culture, we keep penetrating openness , humanized concepts and creative aesthetic ideas constantly into its space structure design. In our opinion, the process of designing is not only simply doing but also beautifying life. With time goes on, people began to be weary of the "forest" of reinforced concrete and the string light mirror glass, and the more they pursuit of is materials that are close to life.

Just like MOLECURE is split and reorganized from words "Molecule" and "Cure", while approaching to the design, we returns to the original purpose of pharmacy- extracting molecule from nature to synthesize healing drugs. Thus we get the idea of building a space which we named "green in the lab", combining the seemingly conflicting qualities of "primitive" with "technology", just like new compounds formed due to molecular bombardment. Ways of molecular aggregation varies from triangular to polygonal, spherical to cones, and the change on its shape due to different ways of aggregation could be amazing. We extracted the two characteristics of molecule - "connectivity" and "aggregation" into our design. For example, we used cement to stick cobblestones on the two towering walls on the left and continue

The new bookstore is divided into four main zones and several subdivided zones. Aiming to create a colorful new world by using symbolism, the architect gave a unique character to each zone: The Sanctuary of Crystal for new arrivals; The Cave of Fireflies for recommendations; The Xanadu of Rainbows for reading room; The Castle of Innocence for children books. <b>The Sanctuary of Crystal</b> As an entrance, ‘The Sanctuary of Crystal’ is a space full of books and nothing else.

The building is part of a much larger real estate residential project in the city of Dongguan, which due to its extensive development and expansion towards the city of Shenzhen in southeastern China, gives the impression of being part of Shenzhen’s metropolitan area. The apartment was designed in order to serve as a show flat for the whole residential project, i.e. a newly built apartment that is decorated and furnished for prospective buyers to view. The flat’s design was the outcome of the collaboration between the architectural studios: “Minas Kosmidis [Architecture In Concept]” based in Thessaloniki, Greece and “YuQiang and Partners interior design” based in Shenzhen, China.

We gutted the existing house, leaving only the structural columns and beams. We created huge windows onto external courtyards and removed most of the walls to flood the spaces with light. The problem with removing walls is that there is nowhere to hang art. This became the driving concept and approach behind the design – bringing art into the architecture. What were some key challenges? The house is on a steep site with views to the south. Only the exiting front wall and garage can be seen from the street and the alterations changed the building envelope only marginally.

Park Corner Barn by McLaren Excell | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mclaren-excell-park-corner-barn/5105051 Thu, 10 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Set amongst beech-wooded farmland high in the Chiltern Hills, Park Corner Barn was originally part of the neighbouring farm estate and was used as an agricultural threshing and cattle barn until the mid-1990s. Built in traditional brick and flint in the late eighteenth century, the barn was enlarged to twice its original size thanks to a Victorian addition in 1864- resulting in the building which stands today. Our client purchased the barn in 2009, twelve years after the first residential conversion of the building, with the intention of stripping the building back to its basic structure and starting again. Through conversation, we agreed on a strategy to create a series of light, open spaces, Scandinavian in feel, with a sense of calm continuity. The barn had to accommodate his passion for, and collections of, classical music and books, and provide a new focal living space at the centre of the revised layout. The design also had to provide for flexible accommodation, with th… continue

Black & White Mews by Threefold Architects | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/threefold-architects-black-amp-white-mews/5105050 Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Threefold Architects were appointed to refurbish and reconfigure an existing mews property in Primrose Hill. A key aspect of the brief was to maximise the existing floor area and natural light throughout. An entirely new arrangement of spaces was proposed and inserted into the existing volume, placing the key open plan living space at second floor with a private terrace to provide outdoor space and serve as a light well to the kitchen and living area. At first floor a generous master suite with further single bedroom occupies the whole floor plate. On the entrance level is a large shower room further double bedroom and study which opens onto the mews through large carriage doors. The design employs a restrained palette of materials characteristic of the industrial heritage of the building. Simple minimal detailing, emphasises the original fabric and inserted structure of the building which have been restored and expressed throughout.

British Airways The First Wing by Universal Design Studio | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/universal-design-studio-british-airways-the-first-wing/5105049 Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Universal Design Studio has designed the new private check-in for First Class and Gold Card members at Heathrow Terminal 5. The First Wing enables the airline’s most valued customers to get from land-side concourse to lounge in less than five minutes via an exclusive check-in area, security channel and lounge entrance. With the aim of bringing a greater sense of visibility, desirability and aspiration to the First Class check-in experience Universal have created a 29-metre long by three-metre high faceted and curved wall; constructed from hundreds of individual fluted panels in varying sizes and tones the wall encloses The First Wing. An articulated glass and mirror screen sits behind the metallic outer wall, forming two entrances for Gold and First Class customers. The interior surfaces of the enclosure are lined with oak marquetry showing an archival British Airways pattern based upon the original British Airways Speedbird marque.

Working on the immediate architectural landscape of the square through to the extensive interior renovation and new façade the scheme includes ten floors of guest rooms, a penthouse suite, a 100 cover restaurant, a wine bar, cocktail bar and a 2000 sqm events and flexible work space. Moving away from the uncompromising and unforgiving aesthetic often associated with the brutalism – Universal’s brief was to create a desirable destination. The design is focused on humanising the architecture, bringing a sense of desirability and luxury and turning it into a contemporary version of a metropolitan grand hotel. The selection of contemporary and classic furniture pieces are complemented by bespoke pieces from local makers and established Scandinavian designers Universal commissioned directly for the project… continue

UIH Showroom by Hallucinate | Doctors' surgeries https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hallucinate-uih-showroom/5105047 Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 United Imaging Healthcare Co. Ltd is a leading company in China which designs and manufactures high-end medical equipment and provides medical imaging systems of good quality to serve the primary health-care populations both in China and worldwide. HALLUCINATE was invited to design a showroom for its Shanghai headquarters. HALLUCINATE sees the entrance of the showroom as an important opening of the sequence of spaces. Using the original height of the architecture, HALLUCINATE sets up a prolonged passage by adding an italic wall in order to enhance the narrative emotions of the entrance. After walking through the passage, the open and bright core area of the showroom appears in the eyes of the visitors. The passage does not only help to create tension and expectation but also strengthens the smoothness and continuity in the user experience of the showroom. Italic, bold yet sensitive folded line structures on the vertical walls show a rebellious challenge towards the dull and mon… continue

This creative community inspired the concept for Design Lab, a place where hackers and creatives could come together and, through collaboration and access to the right tools, take their ideas from hypothetical or digital into real physical place. The Supplyframe DesignLab was conceived with a mission to be a workspace and collaboration hub bringing together inventors and entrepreneurs to explore the future of how hardware projects are built and brought to the market. The 4,900 square foot studio space was to be a hothouse of hardware innovation, entrepreneurial thinking, education and thought leadership – a hacker space at the next level. The completed space combines areas for brainstorming, rapid prototyping, model making and fabrication as well… continue

Sipan Residential Building by RYRA Studio | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ryra-studio-sipan-residential-building/5105045 Tue, 08 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A very important issue in our design process was to benefit the spectacular view and at the same time block the undesirable one. The localization and altitude of the site have ensured scenic overlook towards south and north, but in the east side we had a neighbor with an unpleasant look-out which we prefered to have less openings especially in private spaces which we need more privacy. Consistency/conformity between the building's envelope and interior spaces has been our design principle. The initial idea reflects the organization of the spaces: the more private rooms are located at the corners of the layout, while the more public spaces are set at the center to benefit from more light and view. The design of the building's envelope follows the same rule. A rectangular module with an opening proliferates on the surface of the envelope in a way that large units with large opening at the center of facade grow smaller towards the edges of the building, offering more privacy.

Holiday Apartments Plose by bergmeisterwolf | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bergmeisterwolf-holiday-apartments-plose/5105044 Tue, 08 Aug 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Five vacation houses sharing the same basement (garage) are developed autonomously around a common courtyard in the upper levels. In this way, the roofs of each unit have different shapes that blend with the landscape, remodeling and completing it. The challenge is to find new proportions and relations with the existing, becoming part of the context and contributing with the construction of the place. The compound is placed on a hillside and develops following the existing topography, stopping where the perimeter walls find the existing contour lines of the hill: architecture goes along with landscape. The buildings face the street on one side and the courtyard on the other, shaping this element both as an external space as an intimate and protected place immersed in nature. Traditional materials such as wood and stone have been chosen: quarter logs for the facades and natural stone for the basement. A wooden brise-soleil casts ever changing shadows on the interior, acting on t… continue

Featuring a sustainable menu of seafood and snacks including oysters, local greens and natural wines, Musling is Space Copenhagen’s latest project with Anders Selmer and Bagge Algreen, the team behind Fiskebaren - Copenhagen’s meatpacking district. For the interior design, Space Copenhagen have worked towards an understated and honest approach to materials and ambiance, creating a space that reflects the nature of the open markets and resources outside, focusing on authenticity. The space features warm muted hues, stained oak, burnished steel, warm leather, natural surfaces and simple warm lighting. High tables and streamlined barstools designed by Space are used in the space with a rugged, iron bar. Space Copenhagen continue

The clients asked for a space which challenges the preconception of a showroom, and that would give revitalization to their brand. As Architects and in keeping with our workshop manifesto we have been involved in all aspects of the design from concept to the ceramics, project funding, branding etc. We believe the Workshop is far more than an award winning architecture practice. It is an assemblage of skilled architects, designers and crafts-people, who contribute through a collaborative process in the delivery of our projects. It is these people, their wisdom, their material knowledge, their working processes and dedication that define the Workshop. Pentagon Creative Director Sam Frith wants the new showroom to be an anchor point for architects and specification professionals. He said: “We are questioning preconceptions of w… continue

Naturally embedded amidst the surrounding vegetation, it aims to preserve the pre-existing nature. This is the motto that defines the layout of the building. The house branches out from a main axis, and this axis is not only set up in a functional manner but it also serves to separate the social from the private areas of the house. It is a one-storey building, slightly elevated from the ground. It unfolds from the location and its characteristics, and, in some points, mingles with the existing land, seeming to merge into it. The adopted construction uses a small range of materials, conferring it the simplicity found in Nature. Two concrete slabs define the exterior outline, thus creating a sense of freedom as well as diversity in the creation of the interior areas, and permeability with the exterior. The areas are thus not limi… continue

Building on the strength of Missouri State University’s long history and brand image, this new 13,000 square foot facility serves as the institutions “front door”, welcoming visitors to the campus at its primary entrance. In addition to providing a point of origin for campus visits, the two story lobby and 100 seat presentation room provide a multi-purpose venue for special events such as press conferences, distinguished guests and networking events. Tasked by the University with providing a “signature piece of architecture”, the design solution is both economical and monumental. Originally founded in 1905 as a teacher’s college, Missouri State University now carries the Public Affairs mission in higher education for the state. The building program is arranged in a two-story scheme, placing administrative functions on an upper level in order to increase the building’s visual presence as it reinforc… continue

The client, an English family in love with Barcelona and its friendly atmosphere, acquired the apartment as a holiday home. They wanted to change the distribution and preserve as many traditional elements as possible, while introducing contemporary and elegant new elements. The apartment offers a comfortable, hotel like atmosphere and allocates a spacious living room and three bedroom suites. Therefore, a complete redistribution including structural changes was needed. The design looks for the contrast between the traditional elements, serving as a base, and the contemporary custom made new furniture pieces that are layered on top of the original space while keeping a distance with it. Functionally there are two different day and night areas that need… continue

Having recently relocated its Cape Town headquarters to a two-and-a-half-storey set of offices in Longkloof Studios, located just off the bustling hub that is Kloof Street; it is natural that the company should wish to set itself up in a working space that would reflect its efficiency and modernity. The initial interior design concept was inspired by the office featured in Nancy Meyers’ 2015 comedy film The Intern, upon which Travelstart’s CEO wished to model the new space. From there, Inhouse Director, Phillip Wyatt and Senior Designer, Chrismari Loubser, were delighted to help make the vision happen. Like any booming business, Travelstart has long since learnt that initial impressions can’t be undervalued. As a result, they requested a reception area with, as it might be called, a “WOW effect”.

The 2,800 m2 ‘invisible museum’ transforms and expands a historic German WWII bunker into a groundbreaking cultural complex comprising four exhibitions within a single structure, seamlessly embedded into the landscape. Upon arrival, visitors will first see the bunker until they approach through the heath-lined pathways and find the walls cut into the dunes from all sides and descend to meet in a central clearing. The courtyard allows access into the four underground gallery spaces that have an abundance of daylight even though they are literally carved into the sand. The exhibitions, designed by Dutch agency Tinker Imagineers, showcase permanent and temporary themed experiences that ground the tale of an impressive war machine. While set by the heavy hermetic object of the WWII bunker, the new TIRPITZ is a sharp contrast to… continue

The owners found their ideal office space in Werk3, the former site of German food manufacturer Pfanni, which has been transformed into a creative hub. The site is in the fashionable east railway station district and the owners were instantly captivated by the charm of the building’s industrial heritage and its 4.30 metre-high ceilings. The fact that the site was somewhat too small for the company’s requirements became a challenge for the interior architects instead. An area of 320 m² was designated to house not only 14 workplaces, two discrete offices and a large conference room for the whole team, but also a spacious kitchen/dining area. Individual team members regularly take turns in cooking for the team and this practice has become a firm part of the corporate culture. Another request was that the existing USM tables should be integrated in the design, and there was a strong wish for a reserved desi… continue

Threefold Architects were approached to develop a cohesive refurbishment scheme for a four storey terraced property in the heart of the Redchurch Street conservation area, London. The client, a young couple had bought a property that was very cellularised and wanted to create a home with dynamic interconnected spaces, with as much natural daylight and the best possible connection to outside spaces. Threefold opted to retain the proportions of the terraced facade but improve the detailing and spatial hierarchy to best respect the existing architectural grain. Behind the facade the layout was redesigned both structurally and architecturally to create a series of dramatic and luminous spaces for contemporary living. Space was optimized by creating a single linear staircase occupying a continue

The proposal sought to make the most of the existing structure while using constructive resources that could give new character and life to the building, in order to accommodate educational facilities. Some of these strategies were the inclusion of facade pre-shading for thermal comfort and diffuse light filtering in classrooms, adoption of large vertical atria, new internal stairs, new entrance walkway, lower ground floor converted as large patio and garden, among others.

Newly developed urban areas are losing their connection with nature. Binh house is one project in the "House for Trees" series, a prototypical housing design, providing green space within high density neighborhood. The Inhabitants is a family of three generations. Therefore, the challenge is to create spaces which allow its residents interact and communicate despite their differences. Gardens located on top of the vertically stacking spaces; bounded by sliding glass doors. This strategy not only improves the microclimate by using natural ventilation and daylight in every room, but the alternately stacking openings also increase visibility and interaction between the family members.

The office design was an opportunity to create a strong communications touchpoint expressing MullenLowe’s identity as a “challenger” in the advertising industry, a scrappy do-everything ad firm with a global reach. MullenLowe’s staff work in multiple disciplines for diverse clientele, so their space had to be flexible and inspirational. The space itself was breathtaking when the design team first walked through. Built in the 1930’s, the building was originally a tobacco factory. A large, deep floorplate, 14’ ceilings and metal-frame windows were the raw materials that provided the framework for MullenLowe’s new offices.

Crematorium Heimolen by KAAN Architecten | Church architecture / community centres https://www.architonic.com/en/project/kaan-architecten-crematorium-heimolen/5105022 Fri, 28 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>Location</b> The Heimolen cemetery in the city of Sint-Niklaas lies to the south of the E34 which runs from Antwerp to Gent. Tall trees and sloping banks enclose the cemetery on three sides, making the location hardly visible from the motorway. <b>The task</b> The design task consists of adding a reception building and a crematorium on the existing location of the cemetery. For both practical and environmental reasons, the locations for the ceremony and the actual cremation at the cemetery are separated from one another as far as possible whilst maintaining a notion of the relationship between them. A programme will, however, normally incorporate a ceremony of two parts. This will include a reception and mourning, and processing, all of which are focused on the living and the earth, and the cremation itself which will lead even the most atheistic of us to cast a glance heavenwards. The buildings are therefore to be seen as a reflection of one another in horizontal terms, a… continue

House JRv2 by Studio de.materia | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-de-materia-house-jrv2/5105021 Fri, 28 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The plot lies on the edge of the reserve Żurawiniec, and It is surrounded by a dense park in the south and the west. On the frontier boundary of the plot runs a slope of less than one storey. Such terrain has determined the entire assumption of the project. To avoid a steep descent into the garage, it was placed on the roof of the residential part. The living area was immersed in the descending terrain. This makes the house closed from the entrance (east) and open to the surrounding greenery from the west. The functional layout of the home was dictated by the sun, views and neighborhoods. The layout of the house resembles the letter T. In one wing there is a living room with a dining area and a kitchen open to the surrounding park. The second wing is perpendicular. Partially slammed into the escarpment. There is a technical room and a small guest room. The remainder of this wing contains the wardrobe, the bathroom and the bedroom, which goes out the green side. Such arrangement… continue

Sticks and Stones Home by Luigi Rosselli Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/luigi-rosselli-architects-sticks-and-stones-home/5105020 Fri, 28 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Hunters Hill is an attractive, historic peninsula that lies between the Parramatta and Lane Cove rivers on the north shore of Sydney Harbour. The suburb, a precursor to the Garden City movement, was subdivided in the 19th century with sandstone mansions and Victorian timber cottages sitting side by side, with large gardens and private parks containing centuries old trees. It was natural to choose stone and timber to build a new house on the edge of one of these private parks. Sydney sandstone has a slightly yellow hue that darkens and becomes more attractive over time. The timeless materials provide a warm colour palette in an otherwise contemporary construction. Behind the sandstone walls, huge, double glassed (Skyframe) windows with minimal framing are pocketed out of sight. Post tensioned concrete slabs have been cantilevered with minimal steel post support to cover the main garden terrace. Behind vertical timber shutters, curved glass windows span from floor to ceiling.… continue

The site has panaromic views of the Congo River to the south and a forested unbuilt landscape to the north. The topography of the site is a valley carved out by the great Congo River which creates an island M’Bamaou in the foreground and the buildings sit parallel to the contours of this valley falling towards the river. The positioning of the buildings on the site is largely dictated by this topography where we were concerned to minimise excessive excavation and shifting of earth away from the site. The larger objects of the programme: the 1500 seat Congress Hall, the 300 person Presidential Hall, the 1000 seat Banquet Hall and the 1000 person Public Piazza were placed in a line sequence interrupted by courtyards, and all reached by a public sheltered collonade that links these elements.

The store hopes to make up the sense of emptiness of fitting brought by modern online shopping. Clothes, as the unique fruit of human’s labor, it is not only the representation and product of material civilization, but also has profound meaning in spiritual culture. The evolution history of clothes, in some sense, is also an emotionalized development history of human culture. From the date clothes occurred, people have already integrated their life custom, aesthetic taste, color preference, cultural attitudes and religion believes into it, and the spirit connotation of clothes culture is thus built.

The client, a French Art historian and curator, professor at the Sorbonne University, came to us with very clear ideas for his small property. The apartment, located in the city centre of the coast town of Sitges (a few steps from the beach) is completely introverted, facing only an interior courtyard. The lack of views is compensated by silence and light. The client envisioned a peaceful, open and essential space, furnished with a few carefully selected objects; contemporary artworks, some books, and his records. In sum, a peaceful place for introspection, flooded with light. An extremely reduced budget asked for simple, inexpensive solutions The space is conceived through three different blocks: the bathroom/kitchen block, the living/bedroom one and the third, external, the terrace. The last two are extremely permeable, only divided by a large window and a long, oversized louvers one on the bedroom s… continue

The 7th and 8th floors of the building dedicated to restaurants, known as Kyoto Sumitomo Food Hall, have gone through an overall renewal. As the renewal took place with "Kyoto" as a common concept, the tenant's request was to ambiently feature colors and ornaments symbolic to Kyoto, such as lacquer, wood grains, lattices, etc. to express a comfortable space with touches of color combinations and materials subtly reminiscent of Japanese culture. The aim was to create an upscale atmosphere, which is also open and approachable at the same time. Because the restaurant is specialized in eel (unagi) dishes, the owner wanted to welcome tourists from inside and outside of the country at the heart of Kyoto and entertain them with quintessential experiences of Japanese food and culture. Therefore, we chose Japanesque materials like continue

Consisting of four halls, it is as large as 200,000 square metres. To express their ideal of selling quality home accessories, illustrate a high standard of living as well as create a more humane and comfortable user experience, MJH Group invited Hallucinate to reconstruct and redesign the space including the leisure square in Phase I and III, the public area on 6th-9th floor in Phase I, car park and the signage system. Hallucinate turned the open area between two buildings into a leisure square in which talks and exhibitions can be held. Steel-made wall with lighting behind is added to make the space enclosed yet translucent, which improves the experience in the circulation. The contrast between the liveliness in the mall and the quietness in the public area shapes a strong spatial character. continue

Our clients were an emptynester couple who had lived here for several years. Looking for a refreshed, opulent look and a space that could cater for entertaining kids and grandkids, we introduced the idea of ‘LA glamour’ – a sophisticated and bold concept that uses feature materials to evoke understated luxury with a vintage Hollywood vibe. As part of this project we also selected loose furniture and artworks for each room, accentuating the colour palettes, materials and textures of each space. Major spatial reconfigurations included transforming the second bedroom into a study/den area, as well as alterations to the kitchen and giving extra amenity and storage in the master ensuite, walk-in robes and integrated outdoor dining on the terrace.

Nobu Downtown by Rockwell Group | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/rockwell-group-nobu-downtown/5105008 Tue, 25 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 David Rockwell’s collaboration with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa began with one small restaurant in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighbourhood. It was there the duo conceived a design concept inspired by Chef Nobu’s innovative cooking and the culture of the Japanese countryside, where the chef was born and raised. Twenty-three years later, Nobu Tribeca has been closed to make way for a new flagship - Nobu Downtown – set in a landmark building in the Financial District. Design Concept David Rockwell and Nobu Matsuhisa’s vision for the space is a continuation of their story of Japanese craft that began more than two decades ago. This exploration of materiality is a reflection Chef Nobu’s inventive, non-traditional cuisine: the quality and translucency of the fish, the composition of color and texture in each dish, and the blending of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines. Design Highlights Occupying the ground floor and cellar level of the historic building, Nobu’s design connects old and new. The ground… continue

Joolz by Space Encounters | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/space-encounters-joolz/5105007 Tue, 25 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Space Encounters won the pitch to design and construct the new Joolz headquarters in a former machine factory building in Amsterdam-Noord. The fast-growing Dutch company designs and manufactures push chairs and aims to do things differently. Joolz has a strong ideological agenda when it comes to responsible entrepreneurship. The focus of the new building is their core value: positive design. The new office measures 1.600 m2 and is located in the upcoming area of Amsterdam-Noord. The existing building consisted of a spacious warehouse and a generic office building, and it was obvious where the quality and character resided. Unfortunately, the office blocked the industrial hall from view from passersby. The first step to fix this imbalance was to remove all the walls on the ground floor, thus making the warehouse visible from the street. Subsequently, large openings were made in the office building’s facade, further removing all traces of mediocrity. The new glazing was placed unde… continue

The scheme reinforces this spatial arrangement by revealing the structural concrete wall that runs along the length of the apartment, allowing its linearity to become the backdrop for the apartment’s main feature: a multifaceted steel “spine”. This newly introduced spine sculpts the circulation, surfaces and spaces that makes the backbone of the apartment: It merges the underbelly of the staircase withthe mezzanine slab, allowing the mezzanine and the kitchen underneath it to open up to the reception. At the reception space, the spine protrudes out in a narrow catwalk that overlooks the living area on one side and a double height bookshelf on the other side. The spine… continue

Designers create the space combined with human behavior model, paying special attention to the owner's living habits and hobbies. The overall layout has a calm and concise tone which is set by ink painting with proper depth of color; the necessary decoration of clear and simple lines matches light and rounded interior design, achieving "extremes meet" effect of hardness and softness. When implemented in the specific design of details, the ink atmosphere is created through items as art painting, light gray natural stone floor, ink-dot-like natural stone wall and customized ink carpet, adding an artistic and human feelings to the rational space form.

A simply formed monolith is placed on an incline. And yet, the house blends in with the terrain, optically leading to a ledge in the terrain. Clear design vocabulary focused on reduction, and coarse, earthy grains in the concrete characterize the surface of the house. It is interrupted by terraces and loggias offset to the inside, seemingly dismissing the nearby train track. Everything is scaled back a bit, be it the architecture or the materials used. The house is located at the very end of a park landscape. The idea was to find joining elements in the private residence and the hotel, to find coherence, in order to achieve a continuation in content and history. Andreas Höfler bergmeisterwolf continue

Species from other countries of the same hardiness zone as Qatar will be mixed in strategically, to add form, shadow, scent and color effects. As the future garden is, in fact, a floating stone and steel plate above a parking lot of the same size, it does not offer full soil to its planting. The given ‘roof top’ situation allows for a maximum of 1200 mm soil depth only. To create the garden that we envision, we lay down a regular system of square planters over the flat, hard roof surface, that gradually change in size, height and distance in north to south direction. The generous sizes of the planting beds – f… continue

The project is highly experimental and employs cutting-edge digital CAD/CAM technology in an innovative way. All building components were pre-fabricated, nevertheless, the design itself carefully considered the sun’s position to provide shading and to complement the views. The 3m by 7m rectangular plan is aligned to the cardinal points and it is sub-divided into smaller rooms. A corridor connects these spaces but also aligns with the adjacent olive trees which, thus, become integral to the house’s layout. The exterior envelope is a lightweight metallic surface which wraps around and it is movable, to provide maximum flexibility. The envelope’s perforated textile-like pattern is inspired by the shade of the olive trees. As the sun moves during… continue

On the 4th floor of a typical Parisian apartment block, it boasts a large double siting room looking onto the street, a spacious bespoke kitchen looking over a leafy courtyard, and three bedrooms and an office discreetly situated to the rear of the property. Mixing traditional Haussmannian influences like its parquet flooring and original decorative floor and ceiling moldings with muted tones and vibrant colour blocks, Hermand creates an elegant and bohemian family home, with contemporary twists. Unexpected patterns and colours, like the Pierre Frey and Bien Fait wallpapers in the bedrooms, give the home an up-beat and cheerful edge.

The site is located up on a mountain ridge, next to a reservoir’s dam. There was previously a two-story “San-Ho-Yuan” style dormitory block built back in the 1980s, with a courtyard surrounded by the concave form of the block. There stands an ancient pine in the centre serves as the heart of the courtyard, with its dense canopy covering half of the courtyard and part of the building. Meanwhile, the historical context of the site, to the north of the Jing-Shan Mountain that once gestated the Zen tea ceremony, has prepared it with a deep historical and cultural ambiance. As a result, to preserve the courtyard structure as well as the ancient pine, in order to generate its potential spatial spirit, has been established as our design proposition. Through the study of the surrounding landscapes, the decision was made to reduce the height of the west side of the building to one story, providing the courtyard and the rest of… continue

The organic two-storey addition at the back of a single storey 1910 cottage is surrounded by a swimming pool and the water is the focus that holds the two distinct sections of the house together. By extending the front veranda out to the side of the original cottage it provides a tandem carport, reinforcing the street presence and proportions. Old building techniques were adopted to construct this section, while at the rear cantilevered technology, motorised sliding louvre screens and large plate glass windows give this house a very liveable, comfortable addition. The substantial cantilevered first floor master bedroom provides shade and a rainproof cover to the outdoor terrace, an elliptical stair connects the old and the new: the first floor bedrooms and the ground floor spaces.

Bordeaux Revisited by Inside Outside studio | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/inside-outside-studio-bordeaux-revisited/5104995 Fri, 21 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Fifteen years after the original design for several textile and landscape interventions in the celebrated Maison Bordeaux by OMA, Inside Outside was asked to revisit the spaces and reassess their qualities. The house is made up of three stacked volumes, each with their own characteristics. The bottom floor is sunk into the landscape, with an interior courtyard, facing the caretaker’s residence and guest house. Here Inside Outside introduces a brown and silver, double layered, silk curtain, enhancing the light quality when closed. The middle floor is the most transparent, boasting a huge glass facade. The client wanted to be able to shut out the light coming in from changing angles during the day. A white cotton curtain with a horizontal slit reflects the bright light of southern France outwards and diffuses it inwards. A strategically placed circular window allows the owner to choose the views out to the garden, courtyard and the city as she moves around the space. The exterior t… continue

International High School East of Paris by Ateliers 2/3/4/ | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ateliers-2-3-4-international-high-school-east-of-paris/5104994 Fri, 21 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A high school is like a small estate made up of work, recreation, leisure, encounter and shared places. The access as streets, squares provides perspectives that give life to the estate. The new International High School project east of Paris, planned within this urban context, is located within an exceptional site distinguished by three scales of landscape: - The vast landscape of the district and distant views. The idea to raise the volume creates a horizontal frame that emerged just as the development of a sequenced, view point entrance overlooking Greater Paris. - The Marne la Vallée urban landscape composed of different yet often heterogeneous neighbourhoods. The intention was to develop an imposing volume, a cube devoid of any stylistic intent, stable within the perspective. - The immediate landscape of a planted steep slope. With landscaped terraces, the introspective high school found its place attached to the functions shared with the boarding school (dining, sport… continue

Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel by Iredale Pedersen Hook | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/iredale-pedersen-hook-fitzroy-crossing-renal-hostel/5104988 Thu, 20 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>Background</b> Indigenous Australians make up 3% of Australia’s population and have survived the trauma of Colonisation and are proudly keeping their languages and Culture alive in urban, regional and remote areas. These communities face major socio-economic challenges as a result of 200 years of European governance, including multi-generational unemployment, alcoholism, poor literacy, poor nutrition and poor health outcomes including obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. A lack of coordination by Government agencies at both a State and Commonwealth level has failed to address the causes on this endemic poverty. In one way these kind of challenges could be thought of as 4th World Poverty- that of a stressed Nation struggling to exist within a dominant first world Nation. The remote town of Fitzroy Crossing (population 1,144) was one of the last frontiers of Colonial development. The town is 2,675km by road from the State capital Perth, and 400km to the nearest regional tow… continue

Barr by Snøhetta | Bar interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/snhetta-barr/5104983 Thu, 20 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Copenhagen, Denmark - In the former home of the world-renowned restaurant noma, acclaimed chef and restaurateur Thorsten Schmidt in partnership with chef René Redzepi and Snøhetta have conceived a fresh approach to the iconic space. Snøhetta designed the interiors and new graphic identity for Barr, which opened its doors on July 5 on Copenhagen’s waterfront. Located in North Atlantic House (Nordatlantens Brygge), Barr is a casual restaurant focused not only on the Nordics, but also on the broader food and drink traditions found in the region along the North Sea; an area that spans Scandinavia, Germany, Benelux and British Isles. The restaurant’s name (Barr: meaning “barley” in old Norse), reflects Schmidt’s fascination with the region’s food and drink history and culture. Classic dishes such as frikadeller (Danish meatballs), schnitzel and hot-smoked salmon will be offered alongside a large selection of craft beers and aquavits. The collaboration with Snøhetta began during a work… continue

They wanted us to find it and transform it into a “wow flat”. After weeks of research we have found these offices that lacked of charm but had an great potential as for position, views and the huge, neglected terrace filled of air conditioning machines and bad finishes. They bought the property and entrusted us its complete transformation. Concept Brief · After complete demolition of the space we had to come up with a layout to host four bedrooms and four bathrooms (possibly en-suite), one big living space and take advantage of the great terrace. Beams · The property had a big limit we had to overcome: low ceilings and big beams hanging below them. This implied a difficulty in passing ducts and installations and in how to divide the layout. In the end the rooms have been distributed by placing the walls along the existing beams, e… continue

Ripple Hotel - Qiandao Lake by Li Xiang | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/li-xiang-ripple-hotel-qiandao-lake/5104981 Thu, 20 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>Before design</b> An unsophisticated scene is needed to stage a gentle encounter. How to paddle a mood to allow you to feel shuttle-like light and shadow? How to weave a wave of forest to allow you to purposely sway with wind? How to brush the outline of water expressions to allow you to experience the lingering breath freely, as ripples but indescribable. Qiandao Lake is a blessed place surrounded by myriad mountains. In the past few years, the developer has a crush at this place, and the buildings of this project – 12 soho-style villas designed by German GMP, have already been completed two years ago. However, by cherishing this landscape, the develop is very careful about this investment. Till the beginning of 2014, the developer finally decided to build a self-managed boutique resort hotel here after multiple considerations, which unveils the designer's fate with it. Architecture – the 12 buildings uphold the consistent German route of GMP, clean, simple and tidy. Each two-s… continue

The building itself is built with materials suitable for renovation, so we redesigned the detail and form of the building using those original materials. As a renovation example, renovation of Meatpacking and Brooklyn in New York, magically transformed to trend leading area from warehouse district, were given. Besides the similar bricked construction, there are significant overlaps between environment of Yokohama VIVRE which has broad open area and a river running in front, and Chelsea which is the renovation of warehouse district along Hudson River and Brooklyn, so we made a proposition including the ambient surroundings but the building only. Started by considering the traffic line from the open area and planting, and accentuated the exterior wall with riveted mill-scale finish Double-Ts. In the l… continue

Midwest Inland Port Financial Town by Hallucinate | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hallucinate-midwest-inland-port-financial-town/5104979 Wed, 19 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Authorized through an international bid as the designer of Maike’s first bulk commodity trading center in West China, HALLUCINATE believes that a modern city with a rich historical legacy like Xi’an is inclusive enough to embrace new visions, and has therefore developed the interior design beyond the city’s geographical features for a balanced presentation of historical elements in an open perspective. The interiors are unconventionally designed in an open and tranquil style to underline the importance of the project as the first platform in Midwest China to fill the gap of continuous transactions of the actuals and highlight its endorsement of modern trading. A moderate approach was adopted throughout the overall logic of design as well as the selection of materials and functional elements in order to create a lasting visual appeal and enhance the completeness of this comprehensive project. The completed design features a perfect combination of the luminous roof and the large-gr… continue

Y Residence by Studio Tate | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-tate-y-residence/5104978 Wed, 19 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A new addition for this young family prompted a major change to their living environment – a double-storey house off a laneway in one of Melbourne’s inner-city suburbs. Demolishing all but two existing red brick walls, Studio Tate completely rethought the way this house worked, maximizing the tight spaces with some creative manoeuvres as well as flooding the space with natural light. Warmth was brought through materials and finishes, with heavy use of timber. This project emphasises the potential of inner urban small spaces to provide everything you need for family life – sophisticated interiors with outstanding amenity, without sacrificing location. Living and dining were installed on the upper level, including bespoke joinery such as an island bench with integrated dining table and a cosy living room with a fireplace. A study can be used as a guest room or extra bedroom and a garage doubles as a play room or sleeping space. The master bedroom and ensuite were positioned to ov… continue
