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 Tue, 17 Oct 2017 15:58:50 +0200 House Of Mirrors by Nook Architects | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/nook-architects-house-of-mirrors/5105308 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The projects we have done so far have had very centric locations within the city of Barcelona: Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Gràcia, Poble Nou… This time, however, it was at the centre of it all. Located in Plaça Catalunya, the first thing we did was to look out from the generous balcony doors to the urban sights outside, from a very privileged location on one of the building’s top floors. It was then that we knew that the day zones were to be located towards these valuable openings to the city’s frenetic rhythm. The customer, amazed by Barcelona’s centre, had a very clear distribution in mind. He wanted a spacious dwelling for him as the main occupant during his occasional visits to the city and for hosting his guests. The kitchen had to be at the centre of it all, serving as a meeting point- more of a gastro bar than a family kitchen. It also had to be complemented by wine cellar for more than 600 bottles. The intervention began by allocating the living room on the outermost space… continue

PARSONAGE PARISH CHURCH OF THE CELESTIAL QUEEN by Swisspearl reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/swisspearl-reference-projects-parsonage-parish-church-of-the-celestial-queen/5105307 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:18:53 +0200 Located at the heart of the Hungarian capital, this former music school has been converted into a new home for the Parish Church of the Celestial Queen. The scheme involved a careful restoration of the dilapidated historical building, which now accommodates the traditional functions of the parsonage, such as the parson’s quarters, a classroom for religious education, the library, the banquet hall, and a visitor’s apartment. In addition, architects 4 plusz designed a new and decidedly modern structure that connects the two lateral wings of the existing U-shaped building and divides the garden space into two distinct courtyards. Fully glazed to either side, the transparent ground floor of the extension provides space for social events and opens a vista from the reception area to the rear garden. Lending a unified appearance to the new structure, the architects clad the pitched roof, both external walls, and a number of perforated shutters in Swisspearl panels, choosing a light color sche… continue

OFFICE BUILDING TAGUS GÁS by Swisspearl reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/swisspearl-reference-projects-office-building-tagus-gas/5105306 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:07:58 +0200 This new headquarters for Tagus Gas in Cartaxo, fifty miles from the Portuguese capital, is the country’s first office building to receive BREEAM certification. Designed by international practice Saraiva & Associados in partnership with consultants Ecochoice, the structure features an array of sustainability measures aimed at reducing its environmental impact and optimizing its energy efficiency. The envelope is a core element of this sustainability strategy, which covers the building’s entire life cycle—from manufacturing and construction to utilization and postoccupancy. The facade system features extensive high-performance glazing veiled by a perforated skin made of sustainably produced and recyclable Swisspearl panels. Dotted by countless circular holes, the cladding helps minimize energy consumption by letting plenty of natural light penetrate the building. At the same time, it screens a number of manually operable windows, which allow the interiors to be naturally ventilated, imp… continue

Jet Office by Swisspearl reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/swisspearl-reference-projects-jet-office/5105305 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:54:07 +0200 The spectacular office building in Poznan is located on a plot that remains between tramway tracks and two main transport axes. The structure’s wedge-shaped volume ensues from the property’s triangular area. Black Swisspearl panels comprise the façade skin, which is structured by vertical, shading blinds. Poznan is located half- way between Warsaw and Berlin in one of Poland’s most densely settled metropolitan areas. The city has a long history as a trade center and thanks to excellent transport connections, has reaped the greatest benefits from the country’s European integration. Over the past several years, numerous national and international firms have settled in Poznan; therefore, there is great demand for office space and high pressure on developers to make a mark architecturally and thereby distinguish themselves from competitors. Triangular plot A particularly sensational example of this is the Jet Office building, which the local architectural office Insomia built at the inters… continue

Studio Modijefsky has created a new spatial identity for VIA, which has been realized in Zwolle and Den Haag and continues to inspire new interiors throughout The Netherlands. At the core, is a strong design language that can be translated to every new location, creating a family for all the future VIA restaurants. The design principles, consisting of a material library, key shapes and custom designed elements are adjustable to the special quality of each individual site. Combining an array of wall finishes, flooring materials, a series of light fixtures and a unique palette of fabrics and colors. As a nod to VIA’s Italian component, various types of marble, mirror panels and walnut wood appear in the interior design. Playful accents, which were derived from the shape of the logo (diamond or half triangle) to create a strong sense of identity in the interior, are interspersed throughout the space… continue

Einfamilienhaus Hirzel by Eternit reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/eternit-reference-projects-einfamilienhaus-hirzel/5105303 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 12:54:58 +0200 Various factors affected the design of this single family home: The clients submitted their ideas for living and residing. The building authorities set guidelines for protection of the local architectural heritage. The architects thus shaped a multiply folded structure with a unique character, which does justice to both the surroundings and inner life. The hilly landscape between Lake Zurich and Lake Zug is particularly beautiful. The elongated, oval hills once formed by glacial drift are called drumlins. On each hill is a tree. There, on the edge of a farming village, a married couple fulfilled their dream of a single family home. They didn’t want a conventional house, but instead, one entirely unique in a contemporary architectural language. The architects Christa Stutz and Benno Kohli took the ideas and concepts of the clients, which emerged over the course of several conversations, and developed from them the design of the house with its unique outer shape. According to Benno Kohli… continue

Mehrfamilienhaus Central by Eternit reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/eternit-reference-projects-mehrfamilienhaus-central/5105302 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 12:47:21 +0200 At first glance, the “Central” house in Einsiedeln is confusing. It seems as though one is standing in front of a cut-open structure from whose interior, a greenish curtain billows in the wind. But in fact, the building has two faces: towards the street it displays a concrete façade, on the backside, a flowing, undulating, garment. The new “Central” house stands in a prominent spot in the heart of Einsiedeln, directly adjacent to the “Zwei Raben” culture and congress center, a former orphanage, poorhouse, and hospital from 1859 that was converted to an event center in 1977. The “Central” also conforms to the new conception of Dorfplatz, the village’s main square, which the community initiated in 2015: in accordance with the region’s overall policy, Einsiedeln hereby wants to upgrade the village center and make it more attractive. The architectural office Unger and Treina thus also understood its task for the “Central” as one of creating quality living spaces and attractive sales areas,… continue

Spar Supermarkt by Eternit reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/eternit-reference-projects-spar-supermarkt/5105301 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 11:10:50 +0200 For two students from the Vienna University of Technology, the dream of every design student came true: the architect planning the Spar Supermarket in Alland discovered their prototype for a three-dimensional façade panel that undulates like wet fabric. The bespoke shell lends the new construction a striking appearance. Anna Roos What limits are there to the shaping of fiber cement? Design students at the Vienna University of Technology grappled with this question in the summer semester 2013. Their task was to develop a system that can wrap around or cover a space or object comprising separate elements. To conclude the semester, the students traveled to the Swisspearl factory in Vöcklabruck near Salzburg and together with experts developed prototypes of their designs. Two of the students, Eva Manhart and Philipp Ehfrank, wanted to emphasize fiber cement as a material, as Ehfrank explains, whilst “make it appear lighter and more fabric-like.” And, as Manhart adds, “Also introduce a cert… continue

Figueras Polo Stables by Estudio Ramos | Sports arenas https://www.architonic.com/en/project/estudio-ramos-figueras-polo-stables/5105300 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 This project is located in a distinctive region of Argentina known as “La Pampa”. Pampa is an indigenous word meaning “plains” or “flatland”. Along with its mild climate and fertile soils, the area is ideal for agriculture. When traveling through this area, there is an overwhelming feeling of a never-ending horizontality. The horizon, as in middle of the ocean, becomes a very strong element. The poet Atahualpa Yupanqui refers to the landscape of The Pampas as "serene and pensive”. This project, with its pronounced horizontalism and simplicity of elements, attempts to make a reference to all of these themes. The building, commissioned by professional Polo Player Nacho Figueras, is a stable for polo horses with 44 stalls, an area of 3850 square meters and a length of 180 meters. It’s composed of two long volumes and freestanding walls, which when articulated, create diverse spaces and situations.  The floor plan has two parts well distinguished by their functions. One has a more so… continue

Casa Ploner by Messner Architects | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/messner-architects-casa-ploner/5105299 Mon, 16 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The project consists in the partial demolition and new erection of an existing but never completed house from the mid-nineties on the company's plot. The conversion includes the overhaul of the offices in the ground floor and the construction of an apartment in the first and second floor with a roof-deck. The removal of the gabled roof, the demolition of all partition walls and the modification of the existing apertures made way to redefine a new volume, which would match with the client's agenda. Starting point for the conceptual design was the restructuring of the vertical plot plan. The former perron, which from the forecourt led to the first floor, was replaced by an new interior staircase. The first floor hosts a wardrobe, a kitchen with dining corner, a bathroom, a utility room and a balcony on the south side. The second balcony, which is oriented to the north and west provides a weather shield for the office and apartment entrance on the ground floor. The second floor consis… continue

Saint-Laurent Sports Complex by Saucier + Perrotte Architectes | Sports facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/saucier-perrotte-architectes-saint-laurent-sports-complex/5105298 Fri, 13 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The project site is situated between the existing Émile Legault School and Raymond Bourque Arena, both of which are horizontal in form and neutral in character. For this project, it thus became vital for the design of new sports complex to create a visual and physical link between the Marcel Laurin Park (to the north of the site), and the projected green band that will run along Thimens Boulevard. The sculptural nature of the project creates a strong link between these two natural elements in the urban fabric. Two angular objects — one prismatic, white and diaphanous, the other darker and stretched horizontally — embrace the specific programmatic functions of the project but simultaneously transcend these, inviting users and passersby from the boulevard, while serving as a signal for the passage toward the park beyond. The two volumes appear to float, suspended by the kinetic energy emanating from the heart of the project, thereby evoking the dynamic nature of the activities (spo… continue

The exhibition “Selfie-sh” is a deep reflection on the contemporary portrait: who we really are? Starting from the trend of selfies, the exhibition investigates different ways to portray, which can be also more alternative and less focused on appearances… because a selfies often reveal more than what people wish to display.

There are two industrial buildings and a convent that has been used as a hospital. The new building is positioned in order to bond together each of these structures and to define new external spaces. All the existing buildings are connected vertically and horizontally throughout the block. Inside, public functions are sheltered, like the foyer and auditorium, operating not only as passage spaces and meeting places, but also as a part of a new identity.

We decided to have our new premises in a fully renovated townhouse situated in a trendy and fast developing Poznań neighborhood. The new studio has a simple, minimalistic form with a monochrome palette, consistent with mode:lina™’s visual identity system. The design of the workspace is based on two contrasting black and white parts. The bright space is where the creative work takes place. It has large desks and work areas for designers. Custom-designed large shared desks allow for an easy transition from individual to team work. It was also very important to hide the cords, which were placed inside the desks. Dynamic diagonal lines separate the white part of the ofce from the black one. This is where the kitchen area and spacious storage units are.

La Grange Pavilion by Murray Legge Architecture | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/murray-legge-architecture-la-grange-pavilion/5105292 Thu, 12 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 La Grange Pavilion was created as part of a landscape intervention for a house perched on a bluff overlooking the forest and farmland of Colorado River basin seventy miles east of Austin. Surrounding views offer a quintessential display of central Texas wildlife and landscape: songbirds chirping in gnarled oaks on the bluff, hawks and buzzards spiraling on warm updrafts, morning mists in the valley below dissolving in the heat of the day, and ending with the long shadows of a low sun or the dramatic colors of an overcast sunset. The homeowners envisioned an outdoor patio area that would enable them to enjoy this incredible landscape throughout the year. Situated on the bluff’s edge, a series of outdoor “rooms” weaves amongst the trunks of a live oak grove adjacent to a new swimming pool. A continuous expanse of creamy Lueders limestone pavers delineates the habitable areas from the surrounding natural landscape while creating retaining walls, planters, steps, benches, and flooring s… continue

The project, inspired by the frame and construction of the original building, explores the possibilities of this forgotten piece of the city by bringing it back into use through a series of small-scale interventions. These sensitive interventions take the form of new external and internal pathways, as well as rooms and furniture pieces that guide visitors through the large open bays of the glasshouse while framing views of the surrounding landscape and Bowl beyond. The practice visited the site in January 2017 and set about devising a proposal that would result in the restoration of the derelict glasshouse, creating a versatile event space that could be used for a range of activities including exhibitions and performances. They presented their vision for the glasshouse to the client in February 2017 convincing them of the site’s potential and… continue

Foundation by Studio Formafantasma | Prototypes https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-formafantasma-foundation/5105290 Thu, 12 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 For the occasion of the 2017 Salone del Mobile, Studio Formafantasma has been invited to occupy and re-open the Milanese venue Spazio Krizia, after several years of vacancy. Known as one of the most prominent locations of the ‘Fuorisalone’ (the independent design scene that grew as a alternative to the furniture fair), the space has previously hosted presentations from designers such as Ingo Maurer and Ron Arad. Formafantasma presents a selection of objects from their ‘Delta’ collection, developed for the gallery Giustini Stagetti, Galleria O.

But Konstantinos Tzapos isn’t embarking on a safari. After an unsuccessful hunt for attractive but affordable premises in Munich’s city center, the master hairdresser came up with an idea that’s all set to make waves in the hairdressing market. At the cross section between adventure and ambition, Tzapos decided to convert a US step van into a fully equipped professional mobile hairdressing salon and is ready to take over the streets. Born in Frankfurt, Tzapos trained as an automotive mechatronics technician, but discovered Club Hair, a leading-edge salon at the time. Tzapos took the plunge and followed-up with training as a hairdresser. After completing his compulsory military service in Greece, he moved to Munich and spent many years working his way up in salons including celebrity hairdresser Lippert’s, finally becoming salon manager.

Situated in a prestigious neighbourhood in Montreal, the sprawling residence has been the venue for many social events, dinner parties and family gatherings. With grandchildren on the way, the homeowners elected to embark on a renovation that included several rooms in the home. The objective was to inject a modern aesthetic into a new kitchen, library, master bedroom and en suite, while respecting the classic architectural details throughout the rest of the home. The kitchen had been relocated to the garage in a previous renovation, which presented several design challenges. Low concrete ceilings, ventilation ducts and cinderblock walls required diligence in achieving a plan that would create the illusion of height and light. Sombre cabinetry from the previous kitchen gave way to a brighter palette of white and bleached butternut. White surface-mounted monopoints… continue

The stand is 1511 sq.m. and the house faces 15° east of north. Upon approaching the home the first view is of the cantilevered porte cochere screen of suspended steel tubes with double sliding garage doors clad in dark limestone to blend with the wall. A steel sculpture by Regardt van der Meulen twirls on a podium next to the front door built of privacy glass. Upon entering the transparency of the house becomes evident with views out over the multi-level hall, lounge, spa and pool to the water feature and the garden beyond, as well as over the double volume family room, dining room, lanai and kitchen.

Glasshouse Mountains Residence by Maytree Studios | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/maytree-studios-glasshouse-mountains-residence/5105286 Wed, 11 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The Glasshouse Mountains Residence is a project that has spanned a number of years and three major phases of work. The first was a minor renovation to the workers cottage, followed by the addition of a living room off the side of the workers cottage which would act as a ‘knuckle’ for the third phase of work. The last phase added a double car garage and laundry and a large double height volume living, kitchen and rumpus space in the form of a traditional barn. The structure and skin of the building is built from recycled materials - an oregon portal frame with expressed steel connections and second hand bricks - resulting in an industrial interior environment. A storage wall and stair shelter the long western side of the barn from hot afternoon sun. High level louvres provide vast opportunity for cross ventilation, making the home a successful study in passive cooling. The new 'barn' extension is oriented to frame an existing orchid tree in the largely glazed exterior, providing… continue

Located in the Condesa neigborhood, this triangle is sorrounded by the streets Pachuca, Veracruz and Agustín Melgar. It has the well known “Condesa Buildings” in front of it and its singularity lies in the diagonals of its shape in front of a roundabout that distributes the circulation of three avenues of the area. With separate entrances per unit directly from the street, this assembly becomes airtight mixing orthogonal walls by street level with oblique elements by the sections. Inside, internal courtyards and patios create a small open block center simulating an urban nucleus with identity and gradual escape points from any of its sides. In such a way, it assumes the guidelines of its figure to replicate amorphous geometries in walls as well as in windows and decks. JSª continue

Its convenient location makes this object extremely desirable both by private customers and investors, such as our client who has decided to purchase this skyward apartment for rent. The interior has been designed in such a way that any potential tenant could feel comfortable, and so that they could easily adjust the space to their individual needs. The elements of equipment were selected in the appropriate proportions and neutral and toned colours so as not to suppress the spectacular panorama of the capital.

Gal·la Placídia Square by Escofet 1886 reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/escofet-1886-reference-projects-galla-placidia-square/5105283 Thu, 12 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Gracia, a district famous for its narrow streets and little squares, also has larger open spaces on its perimeter where activities can be held that are not possible in the centre. One such space is Gala Placidia Square, recently affected by several projects which altered the trees and installed new ventilation points and emergency exits for the underground railway line. The project involves moving private vehicles and buses to a new service road which will increase the open space to 7604.13 m2. The site contour includes a 3.5 metre long transversal slope with a 1 m height difference, a determining factor in the final project which seeks to maximise the space available for the neighbourhood, conceiving the square as a broadened section of the streets that converge on it. The height difference is resolved with a green slope, crossed at two points by ramps and stairs to give pedestrians continuity in their movements. This green strip absorbs but at the same time minimizes the presence o… continue

Sturlasgade by JAC studios | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/jac-studios-sturlasgade/5105282 Wed, 11 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 JAC studios have designed a striking renovation of a 200m2 apartment in a former factory complex in the neighbourhood of Islandsbrygge in Copenhagen. The apartment is focussed on creating an interior landscape of plateaus and surfaces that offer dual functionality with an attention to detail and material connectivity. Seemingly impossible structures levitate throughout the interior space with a delicacy and lightness in construction. The apartment utilises a rich choice of materials creating a strong contrast and meeting between surfaces that cantilever, intercept and interact with one another. The design is intended to open up the interior spaces to form a large open plan space that allows for a principal living, kitchen and dining area. Furniture interventions create a zoning of spaces rather than relying on interior walls to divide spaces. The central feature of the dining space is a long 4.5-metre cantilevered table that seemingly floats across the kitchen and living room area, continue

AdGear by ACDF Architecture | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/acdf-architecture-adgear/5105281 Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 AdGear – a fast-growing digital marketing agency founded in Montreal in 2010, and now an independent branch of Samsung Electronics – commissioned ACDF Architecture to design its new headquarters located on McGill Street, in Old Montreal. AdGear is a young and innovative frm, and they wanted ACDF to provide them with a functional space for the company’s 60 employees, that would play up the contrast between their historic setting and their and innovative company culture. Originally built in 1886 as a dry goods warehouse, the property was transformed into offce space in the late 1990s. ACDF developed the space comprised from two adjoining buildings using the party wall to designate two distinct zones in the offce. On one side, a casual, open area unfolds, while the other side is devoted to offces and workspaces. Throughout the two floors, the rough red brick and stone of the central wall contrasts with new materials such as the new polished glass panes used to separate the individual of… continue

Be.Re by Filippo Bombace | Bar interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/filippo-bombace-be-re/5105280 Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Be.Re., beverage and restoration, is a new pub that I designed near the Vatican in Rome, where beers of various cultures in barrels, falls and pumps are used, with cask placed below the counter. The service area is characterized by the use of copper, ceramic coatings with wood effect and brick of original vaults, a general taste deliberately loaded, as opposed to the tones between white and gray that characterize instead the Customer zone, mainly recognizable for the recovery of the original pavements in Carrara marble . A large cabinet in bleached wood houses the custom beer mug for the most affectionate customers; while stools with structure in iron bar and wooden tables always bleached allow the tasting. The same material-color palette, combined with the use of iron in corten for the sketch of the internal gazebos, connotes the room used instead for the gastronomic offer. At the first floor, the two different flavors mix in a single setting where you can enjoy everything in a lo… continue

Keukenhof by Mecanoo | Shopping centres https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mecanoo-keukenhof/5105279 Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Keukenhof finally has a proper main entrance. Mecanoo designed an elegant gatehouse to welcome the large flows of, mainly international, visitors to the world famous gardens. A striking timber roof leans on two volumes, forming an impressive gateway to the park. The stepped roof structure of interwoven isosceles triangles provides shelter, whilst creating an ever-changing play of light and shadow. From the outside world to the world of flowers The gatehouse is the transition between the outside world and the world of Keukenhof and all its flowers. While walking through the entrance, you will see the beautiful Dutch skies above framed by timber triangles. Look down and you will see an intriguing pattern of triangular shadows on the ground. A fence with a tulip motif marks the beginning of a journey of discovery through the park. Integral design The integral design for the entrance area includes two plazas.

Wooden oak legs, curated Kvadrat upholstery and a new high back Easy chair, bring energy and character to an already eclectic range, shown in it’s full entirety at Orgatec this October. This refined collection seeks to explore sheltering, in what could be seen as reassessment of open spaces. Triggered by the idea of gatherings, the Nest collection vividly plays with ideas of high and low, with seats perching on slim wood and steel legs in small clusters. ‘When extending the range, we wanted to add an unenclosed but somewhat secluded seat. The result is the new Easy Nest, a clean cut, high back armchair — a perfect covering, short of blocking your field of view.’ says John Löfgren, Founder and Creative Director at Form Us With Love. The Nest Easy chair is a mastering of angels, a comfortable and heartfelt Nest to crawl into for a good read or be seated in for a profound conve… continue

The new Sala Beckett, opened in November 2016 in Poblenou, in the Sant Martí district, is dedicated to theatre, experimentation and training. This place for meeting and creativity found a space in the headquarters of the old Peace and Justice cooperative (Pau i Justicia). The design by architects Ricardo Flores and Eva Prats reflects the dense memories profoundly rooted in the culture of the historical industrial district, which had already undergone significant changes for the 1992 Olympics and has now become vibrant due to the presence of numerous artists and creative talents. Having grown for 25 years through the commitment of the director José Sanchis Sinisterra, Sala Beckett has been a central place in the culture of Barcelona for some time. The institution wil… continue

Juno’s House by Nook Architects | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/nook-architects-junos-house/5105275 Mon, 09 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Our clients purchased a row house with the intention of doing a modest refurbishment: to renovate the kitchen, opening it to the living room, adding a new bathroom and give the whole a fresher look. When the works began, however, we detected that the quality of construction was extremely poor and that each level was a patchwork of humble materials. The floor slab of the main level almost collapsed on top of us- we then had to come to a halt and analyse the situation. A simple refurbishment had converted into a comprehensive intervention that affected the structure and envelope of the house. Upon these difficult and unforeseen circumstances, the new proposal was based on exploiting the potential of new possibilities. This was no longer a conventional, two-level home, but a project to be drawn on a blank piece of paper. The young and pregnant Swedish-Spanish couple had a very Nordic vision of what the house should be: open, luminous and functional. Unlike most families, they did not continue

The owner, a sculptor and artist, wanted to rethink the inner organization and the light situation of the traditional building. The large hall of the existing structure is separated by two parallel walls, which form three areas: a shared storage space in the center and two workspaces on each side. Every room has access to a second level by way of a narrow staircase. The shelves, which partly separate the rooms, are made of the old boards of the former ground floor. Light Catchers While preserving the main characteristics of the building, three existing windows on the south side and one door on the west side of the facade were replaced by two large openings, so-called “light-catchers”. These elements cut through the porch and allow natural light to flood the room. Being less prominent in the lower part, the light-catchers extend through the roof in their upper section and collect day… continue

The Haus der Zukunft (house of the future) creates its own sculptural identity in this ensemble. On the two main sides of the building, the Alexanderufer and the Kapelle-Ufer, two public spaces are defined by setting back the building. Folding the building up to create urban high points makes the Futurium a striking appearance between the Spree River and the elevated railway. The Futurium was conceived as a low-energy building and achieved the BNB-Gold sustainability rating.

It is a design exercise in 'quality over quantity', of refurbishing rather than building anew. It houses an elderly woman downsizing from a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a swimming pool to a one-bedroom inner-city flat and seeks to engage in a conversation about ways of ageing gracefully in place. A single piece of cabinetry is used to spatially unify the project, providing continuity between the four primary spaces and as a way of tying together the complex geometry. The cabinetry is the main cost component of the project and houses the essentials for living. It is something that was not specifically called for in the brief but manifests as the accordant and discordant object within the original architecture. The cabinetwork also responds at a more intimate scale to our client wi… continue

Moreover, using modern design technique of “merging feeling with scenery”, it “wakes up” the daily Lingnan which is buried deep in history… what the guestroom design of GZ Conrad tells is the humanity landscape of traditional Xiguan residences; it is to show respect to the history of this city. <b>Create new scenery in the familiar place</b> Main designers of guest rooms of GZ Conrad are happened to be native Lingnan people, and they hope to present the guest rooms as a place where guests could take off their mask and pressure and return to themselves easily.

The main focus is spot on the utility of the interior areas, as well as the lighting in order to offer comfort for both players and spectators. The Sports Hall must above all be a constituent element of the Zac Mayac project while allowing continuity with the bordering College project also realized by the agency back in 2003. This project takes up the minerality of the college by modifying its materiality. The perforations of the facades are the particularity that the Sports Hall possesses. One of the major stakes of the operation lies in its ability to generate urbanity. Thus the square front plays a primordial role, thought as an urban place; the square is intended to be homogeneous in its representation, uniting the pedestrian zone with the parking areas.

It has a fully immersive design that walks the visitor from the origins of mankind and language to their complex evolution. It is an experience that goes beyond the exhibition walls thanks to the use of RFID cards. This radio frequency technology allows to identify visitors and personalize their experience: the contents are shown in the chosen language and the installations can be enriched with personal data like date of birth, experiments results or the scores of games. Furthermore, this personal itinerary is registered and can be sent to the visitor’s email address if desired.

The design was based on the lotus flower as Panyaden International School is in Thailand and uses Buddhist teachings to infuse values into its academic curriculum and teach the underlying mechanisms of the human mind. The brief was to build a hall that should be big enough to hold the projected capacity of 300 students, but still smoothly integrates with the previous earthen and bamboo buildings of the school as well as the natural hilly landscape of the area. It should provide modern sports facilities and use only bamboo to maintain the low carbon footprint and the “Green School” mission of Panyaden.

The new building is generously day-lighted with sky domes and a special colour treatment of the floor increases day light effect. Areas where natural light falls are treated with a beige resin, the room borders and corners are treated with deep orange resin. Both are linked with a rough handmade colour gradient. The result is a kind of augmented reality, providing a feeling of sunny weather whatever is the meteo. All the furnitures were designed for this project, each of them is a unique piece. Master piece is the 777cm long bar, made of solid wood slices. One edge sits on the floor and the opposite edge is suspended from the roof and all under space length stays free.

Ground floor, at the main living area we smashing most of solid wall and introduce steel frame glazing panels. Extend the extra space behind the house to meet the demands of increased usage and pull natural light into the house.

ACDF Architecture was commissioned to design its headquarters on Peel Street in downtown Montreal. Making the most out of the original setting – a 1980s-built offce tower - the architects used the existing walls to create a variety of vibrant private spaces, thus saving resources and money. To give their clients an environment suited to the company’s high energy and creativity, the architects developed a contemporary, open concept design highlighted by a clever play of bright colours and white surfaces. The architects proposed an exciting chromatic pattern that reinvents the 18,000-square-foot space.

In the old days, films are stored in film reels, movies are screened in cinemas by running reels in projectors.

This new building is made up of a set of workshops and laboratories where teaching utilizes advanced and clearly unconventional techniques and technologies. Consequently, the building, as a container, also had to express both externally and internally this unconventional and somehow disruptive character. At the same time, it had to manifest itself as the visual icon of the University adopting a vertical development of slender proportions as opposed to the horizontal development of the Campus, clearly marking its location in the City’s profile.

The main idea was to create a school with a community spirit, a space which the students would consider their own and be inspired to create in. We wanted to surprise them, to immerse them in an interesting environment, but to leave some spaces as a blank canvas. The space of the school resembles a giant playground with abstract objects scattered around at random. Еach object hides a certain function behind its simple form.

This institution mainly teaches children music, dance, tea, cooking, and craft courses, so the space design needs to provide appropriate classrooms based on above needs. Inspired by rockery artificial hills in Chinese traditional garden, the design creates multiple ranges of "artificial hills" that allow children to happily play here. The graphic design of the original building is L-shaped, and the entrance is located in the end of one side, thus the streamline from outside to inside is relatively long. A winding corridor is squeezed out by continuous curved walls, different from traditional boring straight corridors, it stimulates children’s desire to explore.

At the other end you have the main workspace, designed for people doing deep, focused work. And in between are a series of collaborative spaces, such as the main meeting room we call ‘city loft’ for its relaxed, urban, yet sophisticated feel. Finally, there’s a single, powerful architectural gesture drawing everything together - the sculptural wooden canopy spanning the length of the office. It’s a subtle nod to the High Line linear urban park in New York, and the spectacular Sheikh Zayed bridge that visitors cross on their way to the office. So.

Being the brand specialized in reparations of mobile phones and smartphone cases, above other accessories for smartphones, the brand reinvention focused mainly on the 54 degrees angle of touch screens. That angle was applied both to the brand as well as to the interior design, besides four different colors: green and blue as a reference to the doctor, salmon for the fashionistas and purple for the geeks.

The space was repositioned and redefined to create the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. A quiet colour palette contrasted with bold detailing features throughout the apartment, ensuring a calm and elegant, yet fresh and contemporary feel. Steered by our clients' enthusiasm for Dutch design, key pieces from the collections of Moooi, Piet Boon, Artifort and Studio Job were selected, injecting the spirit and playfulness of Dutch design into the apartment. In addition to the main living spaces a further three rooms are to be developed during the winter months. Jane Richards Interiors continue

As you walk in, it opens up from the main façade to the rear terrace, which looks over the Boqueria market. Initially, we were surprised to see that the apartment occupied the entire floor of the building, with a contrast of large and small obsolete spaces and proportionally limited connection to the enormous, uneven terrace. From the very beginning, one of the most interesting premises we established with the client was that this would be her home. As a translator and writer, she wanted to get away from the typical functionality of a conventional house and was looking for a flexible use of space. This large, initially chaotic area needed to become a personal haven, a work space, as well as a place to host friends and family, without overly defining areas or assigning them exclusive functions. With this strong focus on versatility, she wanted the uses of different rooms t… continue

LaBiennale by Summary | Installations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/summary-labiennale/5105254 Fri, 29 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 “From the infrastructure for basic services to the structure of open architecture”, Alejandro Aravena (about the SUMMARY’s work). In the 15th edition of the Venice Biennale, Alejandro Aravena invited us to look at new fields of action, projects that intend to improve life quality and stories of success that are worth getting to know. Thus, Samuel Gonçalves, founder of the SUMMARY studio, the youngest studio invited, was selected to present his work “infrastructure-structure-architecture” with the purpose of showing the concept behind his project Gomos System. The Biennale exhibits two infrastructural pieces and a Gomos System piece, so that we can get to know some elements that are part of its core. This installation also includes a table set with two screens that simultaneously play two videos made by Building Pictures. These videos are exclusive of the exhibition and they allow a comparison between the constructive process of the infrastructure as well as the constructive proce… continue

Cabin Kvitfjell by Lund Hagem Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/lund-hagem-architects-cabin-kvitfjell/5105247 Fri, 29 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Our design process was inspired by the client’s desire to have “a summer cabin in a winter landscape”. The site is located at one of the highest buildable plots within the Kvitfjell Ski Resort. It has uninterrupted views towards southeast, where the topography drops dramatically. The vegetation consists of birch and pine trees, located along the road and towards southeast. The central part of the plot, which had been previously cleared of vegetation, was also its flattest part. The existing trees created a sort of a filter towards the road and towards the winter resort, further down the mountain. By placing two volumes close to the neighbouring limits, a kind of a courtyard was created. This way, the outdoor spaces could benefit from privacy from the neighbours, while still benefiting from the west/evening sun, during Easter and summer. The main cabin and the annex were built on stilts, raised from the ground, in order to touch the ground in the "lightest" manner possible. To… continue

Obgleich sehr viel höher als erwartet, hat sich die Investition für die Stadt Hamburg gelohnt. Ihr neues, architektonisches „Juwel“ zieht Gäste aus aller Welt an. Dabei beherbergt das 110 Meter hohe Gebäude nicht nur ein viel beachtetes Konzerthaus, gewerbliche Flächen, Gastronomie und ein Parkhaus. Hinter seiner faszinierenden Glasfassade verbirgt sich auch ein Fünf-Sterne-Hotel, das mit hochwertigen Holzwerkstoffen von Pfleiderer ausgestattet ist.

Die hohen Decken und Wände sind hier zwar ebenfalls in Weiß gehalten, wie es für medizinische Einrichtungen meist üblich ist. Doch die Farbe der Reinheit wirkt in diesem Umfeld alles andere als steril oder kühl. Kombiniert mit dem dunklen Holz-Boden entsteht ein angenehm wohnlich wirkender Kontrast, welcher eine großzügige Raum-Atmosphäre schafft. Um den besonderen Charme dieser Altbauwohnung zu betonen, haben die Planer vorhandene Elemente wie die Eingangstür, kleine Erker und die Sprossenfenster erhalten und in das Gestaltungskonzept eingebunden.

La Esmeralda by JSª | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/js-la-esmeralda/5105244 Thu, 28 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The project consisted in the intervention of a building, located in the Condesa neighborhood, considered urban cultural heritage of artistic value, as per the Heritage Conservation program. The main objective of this project was to renew the building without altering its original appearance. The building was originally designed by Architect José Creixell M. and built in 1953. The intervention proposal focuses on: lightening the building, strengthening its structure and restoring the interior and exterior finishes. The interior walls of the apartments were demolished to lighten the structure, provide more light and space, and improve the flow. Most existing finishes were preserved, some were removed to be cleaned and restores, and others were replaced by new pieces with the same characteristics. The facade was completely restored.

Here, in fact, the main aesthetic trends of the 1950s and 1960s coexist harmoniously with the modern and high-tech culture of the 21st century, defining the indoor spaces of the structure. The characteristics of Atlas Concorde's collections of porcelain tiles Made in Italy were perfect for the indoor floors in the reception and bathrooms, where the Dwell and Block styles were used. Installed in the 75x75 cm format and in the dark Smoke color, Dwell's concrete effect recalls urban surfaces of brushed matte concrete, reproducing nuances and irregularities. The Momentum hotel's reception area thus takes on a metropolitan look, both contemporary and original. The hotel's bathrooms feature the stone-effect Block collection, belonging to the Atlas Concorde Solutions range of ceramic tiles,… continue

Separately or in various even astonishing combinations. The space concept of travelling through time zones has been derived from its name „Jetlag“. Within this meaning one can “fly through” the entire world only along the whole length of the bar (15 metres). Awaking in the tea and wine bar at St. George Square: The entire world is crammed in there; 24 time zones compressed into a few seconds; An utter huddle and muddle; One enters today and within a few steps now becomes yesterday. It takes six hours to get to the bar end and Additional thirteen hours to reach the last table at a window. Wine comes from Chile, tea from Ceylon; 9 hours in a 200 ml glass. Austria, China 8 hours; An hour is lost, another hour gained. The substance of the spatial solution to the Jetlag bar consists in the idea of „cutting its space into time zones“.

Coalimex by group8asia | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/group8asia-coalimex/5105241 Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The Coalimex building is an office building with an area of about 10’000m2 divided by 10 store and office storeys. Located at 33 Trang Thi Street, in the centre of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, this building stands amidst many commercial centres and historical places. The particular congested context coupled with the will to produce an eco-friendly building brings multiple concerns: noise management, direct view optimisation, natural ventilation principles and how to be an iconic building respectful of its neighbourhood. In order to produce a sustainable way to organize the offices, each floor must be flexible and be divided into different office spaces of different sizes. In this way, the narrow building manages to offer multiple differing areas and atmospheres. The facade is adapted to the different contexts of the plot. The main façade, which is directly in contact with the street, gives its strong identity to the Coalimex building and deals with its constraints. It is made of double-la… continue

Cubic Houses by ADEPT | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/adept-cubic-houses/5105240 Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 ADEPTs recently completed Cubic Houses in Copenhagen, DK shows a playful residential complex that breaks down the scale of a large building volume while offering a generous variation to the in-progress development of a new neighbourhood. The design of the Cubic Houses aims to balance the client’s wish for a large amount of square meters with the envisioned character of urban life in the new development neigbourhood. The result is a residential complex that breaks down the building volume into several individual ‘cubes’ - stacked and shifted on top of each other. The configuration of cubes reflects the rhythm of a human scale and works against long stretches of street with no variation or human activity. The design adapts to the overall urban scale of the neighbourhood, yet contributes to a varied and lively small-scale atmosphere along the central canal. In its basic concept, Cubic Houses is a regular building slap with spacious and simple apartment layouts. Maintaining the… continue

Reflecting the cool, relaxing lifestyle of the south of Portugal, this exquisite property features generous exterior areas, also designed by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho, with a pool, an extensive deck area close to the main house, and a lounge area with exterior fireplace and privileged access to two beaches. The architectural project is decisively contemporary, with a clean and rectilinear language. Two volumes characterized the main house: one, coated in stone, references the volumetric pre-existence of past times; the other one, built for this project, overlaps the first and aligns with the sea. Grand glass planes dematerialize the volumetric mass of the south façade directed at the ocean, establishing and reinforcing the strong connection with the… continue

The area is a vast atrium with the wall-piece spanning over 200sqm across two imposing vertical walls. From behind a veil of silk thread curtain, lie a bold series of 14 light boxes and neon signs. An intentionally overwhelming display of playful messages designed to awaken one’s desire to participate in the venue’s lively atmosphere.

The new design forms a fresh and individual space that reflects ICS’s culture and values, and gives their staff and students a strong sense of belonging. During the planning stage, the students along with the staff were greatly involved in the decision-making process by expressing their needs and favoured use of the space as well as their preferences in furniture, material and colour choices. As the refit of the entrance hall took place during the school holidays, the design concept was tailored to a solution, which could be implemented during 2 weeks of construction time. Three pods are built into the wall at the far end of the entry hall, creating spaces where students can study or relax. The lower pods are equipped with whiteboards, allowing students to write and sketch freely onto the walls and tables of t… continue

The project began in 1995 with the discovery of the remains of the Namur - a large 18th century naval warship - beneath several layers of floorboards in one of 47 Scheduled Ancient Monuments at the Historic Dockyard. Hailed as the most significant naval archaeological discovery since that of the Mary Rose, the timbers became the focal point of Command of the Oceans – unlocking the potential of a series of historic buildings as 21st century visitor facilities and galleries. The complex project has included the preservation, display and interpretation of the Namur, orientation to help visitors understand the Historic Dockyard’s wider role and context, and the creation of new galleries, visitor welcome and hospitality services.

To reflect the brand values and aspirations of its founders, a design firm was enlisted to create a signature brand identity for the brand’s launch and first location in Toronto. The 1,234 square foot retail space is envisioned to be the destination for dining and lifestyle entertainment. Suitably located in the heart of Toronto’s Rosedale community, the brand’s modern sensibility is expressed in a muted palette of calming colours, classic textures, and noble materials to echo the timeless quality of their exclusive product offering.

More than just black and white: refined marble and an innovative cooktop extractor system by BORA reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bora-reference-projects-more-than-just-black-and-white-refined-marble-and-an-innovative-cooktop-extractor-system/5105228 Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 When you first see this kitchen, it is definitely the natural stone – refined white marble with black elements – that instantly catches the eye. However, the second glance belongs to the BORA Professional 2.0 cooktop extractor system: the refined control knobs with solid stainless steel rings that fit perfectly in the hand and the stainless steel extractor that can be electrically opened and closed. The designers selected two extra-deep induction cooktops, which are precisely flush-installed in the marble worktop with the extractor. Hidden below these is innovative and compact extraction technology, which quietly and effectively extracts cooking vapours downwards. There is no extractor hood to impair the field of view or the kitchen design. The black kitchen unit on the rear wall offers plenty of storage space. This is interrupted by a niche with an extravagant rear wall – also coated in marble – that offers space for a sink. BORA partner Held kreativ therefore succeeded in taking a sm… continue

Hotel Carlota by JSª | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/js-hotel-carlota/5105227 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Located in the heart of Mexico City, just a few steps from Reforma Avenue at the Cuauhtemoc neighborhood, characterized by its history and contrasts, an old acquaintance is reinvented and transformed into a hotel, making honor to the city in which it lives. This rediscovered space is the first concept of urban hotel in the country. The starting point of this project was an urbanarcheological work. We found a building in complete decadence, formerly named Hotel Jardin Amazonas, while researching and analizing it, a couple of images from its splendorous times caiught our attention, specially the central court yard that figured an oasis within the city. Nothing remained from that hotel apart from the typical structure of a motel, with exterior corridors and balconies above the courtyard, as well as countless layers of coverings, aggregates, stairs and patches. Today the hotel has 36 rooms, each custom designed. JSª continue

Hopetoun Avenue by b.e architecture | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/b-e-architecture-hopetoun-avenue/5105226 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 B.E Architecture’s most recently completed project, Hopetoun Avenue, is a renovation and extension to a period home in the Sydney suburb of Vaucluse. Offering an intentional point of difference to the solidity of the existing sandstone house, the new addition is a gentle intervention that emerges quietly from the canopy of a beautiful, mature lemon-scented gum tree. With sensitivity to the site’s inherent strengths, the design embraces the preservation and integration of the established tree allowing it to remain the dominate feature on the property. The covered outdoor spaces are literally built around the tree, encapsulating and framing the trunk. The timber-clad columns recede into the background and a fine line of glazing opens to the densely planted side yard for continuous access to the natural environment from within the interior spaces. The upper level sits in the branches of the tree floating above the bottom structure to provide a unique treetop setting overlooking views… continue

GOMOS 1 by Summary | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/summary-gomos-1/5105224 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The Gomos System results from a business R&D project and consists of a concrete modular system which presents an accurate and efficient answer to the contemporary need for simplify and accelerate the building processes. It is an evolutionary system, in which each module leaves the factory completely ready, including all interior and exterior finishings, insulations, window frames, water and electricity installations and also fixed furniture pieces. The building assembly on site is done in a few days, just by joining these modules. The main idea is derived by the construction systems of the ordinary sewer pipes. We took this existing system and re-designed it in order to make it habitable, keeping the rapidity and the stability of the canalization shells. The building process can be summarized in four phases: structure production, cladding and hardware installation, transportation and assembly. From a technical point of view, there are four key factors that led to the development… continue

Roomers Hotel by Salvatori reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/salvatori-reference-projects-roomers-hotel/5105223 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The spa town of Baden-Baden in Germany’s Black Forest has long been known for its old-world charm and curative treatments. And, since October 2016 there is a new arrival to its luxury hotel scene: Roomers hotel designed by Lissoni Architettura together with KHP Architekten. Discreet luxury is the name of the game, with the focus being on creating a warm and welcoming environment from the lounge with its inviting fireplace to the lush gardens and the rooftop bar with 360-degree views over the town and forest Using natural products wherever possible, the theme of warmth and cosiness continues, including the choice of stone which just happens to be Crema d’Orcia, our lovely creamy-coloured limestone. We supplied over 3000 square metres of it in honed, sandblasted and our Lithoverde® finishes. It fits the bill perfectly: elegant, warm and cossetting, and of course with an added bonus: our Lithoverde® is 99% composed of offcuts meaning that the hotel not only looks after the wellbein… continue

The project to decorate the bathrooms in Silk Georgette® required almost 7000 square metres of Silk Georgette® and is a great example of Salvatori total look, with not only the floors and walls featuring the material, but also the bathtubs and cabinets. This, however, posed another challenge. Using stone for cabinets in a private bathroom is one thing, but the potential heavy workload in a hotel meant that we had to consider the amount of stress each cabinet would be subjected to. Working with designers and joiners, we developed a system with modular pieces all shaved to a thickness of less than 10mm. We then attached the stone to a wooden structure. The result was cabinets which looked as though they had been created from one single block of stone, yet were light enough… continue

Claremont Residence by David Barr Architect | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/david-barr-architect-claremont-residence/5105221 Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 This extension to a pre-war suburban house is generated by a series of brick volumes connected by discrete landscaped areas. A clear grid informs the new addition’s planning, with each of the main spaces (dining room, living room, bedroom) located separately. The project extends the house into the garden, the plan shifted and manipulated to capture views of beautiful mature trees on the site and in neighbouring gardens. Distinct spaces are created externally (a courtyard, a formal lawn, a raised external dining area and pool) and then drawn back into the house through large areas of glazed openings. The project’s materials are a juxtaposition between the brickwork, ‘bagged’ and painted white, and dark steel and timber elements that link them. Large sliding doors, their frames concealed, open the major rooms to the garden and courtyards. Deep window reveals open to the north, while operable timber screens shield western windows from the sun. Internally a restrained palette of concre… continue

Oxygen Park by AECOM | Parks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/aecom-oxygen-park/5105220 Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Taking the elemental life-force of oxygen as its inspiration, Oxygen Park, is a unique public space designed for health and wellbeing in a desert environment. It has been created with the local community in mind, providing an open space in which to exercise, rest, and play. Oxygen Park is inspired by the wind eroded rocks and fluid land formations of the desert. The path and running tracks are embedded in the topography to create an exciting training ground with looping tracks, cooled tunnel segments, and steep hills. The night-time lighting scheme and refreshing water features provide an attractive setting for evening sports activities and individual work-outs during cooler hours of the day. Oxygen Park features shaded running tracks, subterranean pitches for team sports, equestrian facilities, as well as more gentle recreation areas with a series of soundscape-filled, refreshing folly spheres. The ‘balloon lights’ floating above the subterranean grounds make the park visible fr… continue

The new spaces will accommodate 800 work stations, 150 car parking spaces and a conference room for 280 people. It is an important and ambitious project aimed at ensuring innovative standards in the building performances but also focused on generating a new urban redevelopment process through attentive dialogue with the city. The architecture defines a contemporary insertion in the heart of the historical centre: a new construction that represents a significant replacement project achieved without taking up additional land, into which Reale Immobili has invested 50 million euros. The new innovative and highly comfortable offices cover a built area of 23,500 square metres, giving form to a building that redefines the urban block highlighting the presence of an internal courtyard covering 1,700 square metres, visible from the street front. continue

The project is a restrained approach to a traditional European vernacular, exploring bespoke quality detailing, materiality and architectural framing. With the existing house ineffectively dealing with scale limitations, the brief was primarily to explore how we could reintroduce a higher quality of spatial resolution. The plans and volumes were subsequently rationalized around better circulation, view corridors and access to the water. 
 With an emphasis placed on architectural framing and the suitable transition from interior to exterior. The garden was refined, designed with proportion in mind in order to achieve a sense of privacy as well as maximize use of amenities for the client. The large-scale opening explored opportunity for external living and dining, an integral aspect to the client brief addressing the need for entertaining spaces, essential for a ‘home away fro… continue

Dots by group8asia | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/group8asia-dots/5105213 Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 With a limited budget, the goal of this project is to create a restaurant and cafeteria with a capacity of 1’700 employees working on the Fsoft C4 building. Located in the park in front of the main office building, the canteen disappears into the landscape. The drawn profile of the building blends into the vegetation of the surrounding park. Mingling with trees, it seems that the users lose the perception of its limits. The transparency of the façade makes the place an open interior space with no breaks nor visual barriers. In order to break the scale, create islets of vegetation and ensure natural ventilation, the patios are integrated inside the pavilion. This new construction creates a dialogue between tradition, nature and contemporary Vietnam. The idea of the pavilion was inspired by traditional Vietnamese architecture - the town hall - and has some additional specific characteristics to adapt to the tropical climate of Hanoi. As a floating building system of regular struc… continue

Lotte World Tower by KPF | Office buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/kpf-lotte-world-tower/5105212 Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 This 555-meter monument to Seoul’s skyline reaches heights never before seen in Korea and joins the ranks of the world’s top ten tallest buildings. Elegance of form was one of the prime objectives, following Lotte's desire to bestow a beautiful monument to the capital city skyline. The sleek tapered form of the 123-story tower stands out from the city's rocky mountainous topography, and is organized around a stacked mixed-use program, comprising retail, office, officetel, and a 7-star luxury hotel. The building's top ten stories are earmarked for extensive public use and entertainment facilities including an observation deck and rooftop café. Our design melds a modern aesthetic with forms inspired by the historic Korean arts of ceramics, porcelain, and calligraphy. The tower's uninterrupted curvature and gentle tapered form is reflective of Korean artistry. The seam that runs from top to bottom of the structure gestures toward the old center of city. The building design is seekin… continue

Feversham House by McLaren Excell | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mclaren-excell-feversham-house/5105211 Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The practice was approached by a couple who had high ambitions for a house they had recently bought for their retirement. Built in the 1970s, the house had been originally designed by an architect specialising in standardised office architecture, resulting in a very corporate exterior and a dark and dated brick and timber interior. Typical of buildings from the era, the whole external envelope was one large, un-insulated cold bridge: the external walls and steel beams haemorrhaged heat, to the extent that the building became uninhabitable in the winter months without huge expenditure on wasteful heating. Following discussions with our client, we set two principal objectives, each mutually dependent if a successful result was to be achieved: complete refurbishment of the interior and addressing the building’s energy consumption and on-going sustainability. With our clients nearing retirement and looking at a future of high energy costs, their top priority was to improve the energy… continue

After it was decommissioned in the 1990s its owners, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, approached the studio to develop ideas for adapting the silo and its site. Although the waterfront was already a vibrant area, it lacked a major cultural institution. At the same time, the Zeitz Foundation was seeking a new permanent home for their collection of contemporary art from Africa and it’s diaspora. The two programmes coincided, and it was decided that the grain silo would be transformed into a new museum for contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Though the concrete building looks like a single structure, it is composed of two parts: a grading tower and forty-two tall, cellular silos. The main challenge was to convert these tightly packed concrete tubes into spaces suitable for displaying art while retaining the building’s industrial heritage. We developed a concept to ca… continue

Indigo Sherway by Burdifilek | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/burdifilek-indigo-sherway/5105208 Mon, 18 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Indigo Heather Reisman had a vision for a “cultural department store for book-lovers” with this new concept, but didn’t want it feel or look like a traditional department store. Understanding the notion that books were just the beginning of a larger narrative to enrich our lives, the design concept kept the books at the heart and soul of the experience, yet compartmentalized the store into several core categories. Creating a cross-pollination of books with product with areas like Room Of Her Own, Joy of the Table, Paper Shop, Indigo Tech, Art and Photography, to name a few, Indigo is able to create a richer narrative for the books in those categories. To recreate the rawness of space found in a contemporary art gallery, we kept the exposed ceiling, simple drywall solution and various zones. The beauty of the design shines when you enter into a specific zone as everything was proportioned to feel like you were in someone’s home. When you’re in that space, you get a real sense for wh… continue

Designed by Form Us With Love as a voluminous illumination shield as well as a modular LED pendant light, the pendant is addressing a modern atmosphere issue. Much like the recent Plug lamp, Hood is built on necessity. Once again bringing a dual function light, Hood meets the basic desire of shutting things out and concentrating light on secluded areas like work-, conference- or dining tables. At the same time, the three-piece modular function lets you build the Hood to whatever size you need. Starting with basic corner units, one can add the compressed industrial felt sheets to scale the pendant for an extensive illuminating form. “The Hood lamp is more than a lamp. Itʼs a piece of furniture – the size and material has an interesting effect on the atmosphere, making the piece feel so much more than just a pendant lamp”, says Form Us With Love. The work on the Hood lamp began three years ago at the Form Us With Love studio.… continue
