Property in the heart of Mother Nature has a unique appeal, offering freedom from the enclosed spaces of civilisation and relief from hectic everyday life. But the architecture of a home in the forest can be very different to that of an urban building – in fact, it has to be. Your refuge needs to blend into its wild surroundings, forming a bond and understanding with them. The Forest House, a three-storey home built in the Polish forests outside of Warsaw in 2018, blends in with the wild flora thanks to a perfect balance between delineation and assimilation. This is most clearly reflected in the materials used in the construction and the visual call-backs between the inside and the outside that run through all three floors of the building. The house offers around 250 m²… continue

Lumine by Canuch | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/canuch-lumine/5106423 Thu, 18 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Lumine Co., Ltd. is an operator of commercial facilities in and around the Tokyo area, targeting women in their 20s and 30s. We conducted a large-scale renovation of their offices, the first in 20 years, with the objectives of promoting communication between departments and with the shop floor, creating an environment where staff can express themselves flexibly and focus on creative work, and building on reforms of working practices to improve operational efficiency. In order to solve the problem of a lack of horizontal communication between departments, we removed physical barriers and placed a flexible shared space, known as a "campfire", in the middle of the office to act as a hub. In addition, as zoning to encourage incidental communication and promote activity-based working, we moved the drink stand and print station next to each other. The campfire encompasses multiple functions. As well as installing a news stand and library where people can catch up on the latest trends a… continue

The Canopy at the Barnes / Alléesoid by Shiftspace | Installations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/shiftspace-the-canopy-at-the-barnes-alleesoid/5106419 Wed, 17 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A 300-foot long site-specific spatial installation for the Barnes Foundation. The client was interested in activating the underutilized public portions of the site, which were acting as a barrier to entry for the museum. The concept-driven project proposed a transformation of the visual barrier into an occupiable space. After exploring pedestrian barriers, the design team began experimenting with typical construction fencing materials. The material was transformed into catenary tubes formed by rolling and fastening the material lengthwise. A weaving and tiered pattern swoops down to create a ceiling plane and then rises up into the tree canopy to create both intimate and sprawling spatial experiences. Due to the porous and lightweight nature of the material, the installation is dynamic as it is affected by sunlight, wind, and visual layering. Beneath the mesh canopy, cafe seating, picnic areas, lounge areas and a bocce court were added to further activate the space. The Barnes Foun… continue

One of the more decorous local hotels is the Kaisergarten, which opened its doors in 2013, bringing a gust of fresh air to the town without losing a hint of its traditional ambience. The restaurant of the hotel is the pearl in the shell with its calming earthy tones, ample lighting and an oaken floor with curves that don't quit. The white sapwood linings in the Oak Natural floorboards accentuate the wood's natural curves, which in union with the carefully selected decorations and lighting create a dynamic within the restaurant that is sure to please the eye while the culinary oeuvres and the trove of local wines pamper the senses.

The layout of the apartments did not quite fit the new owners, and the designer, architect and builders faced the task of reconstructing the apartment's premises to ensure the most comfortable stay of the owner and his bride during the Barcelona vacation. The mood of the interior is set by a LiveEdge floor of solid Oak Natural, the boards of which repeat the natural lines of the living tree. Everything in the interior contributes to the penetration of light rays: glass and steel structures, mirrors, rhythmic shutters, furniture on thin legs and decor objects. Over the sofa in the living room are the canvases from the collection of Stones contemporary Spanish artist Jon Errazu. The master bathroom and the bedroom are joined by a glass shower enclosure, from which, relaxing under an artificial waterfall, the hosts can admire the view of the city and mount… continue

No teacher-centric podiums and blackboards but stimulating, collaborative work and learning spaces. To embody its namesake, the Chaoyang Future School by Crossboundaries has to work differently. That means it has to think differently.*</b> Chaoyang Future School, in Beijing, is the latest iteration of Peking University’s pedagogic model for China’s future creators, in their continued exploration with Crossboundaries to manifest places and spaces that embody their collective vision. The large 26,000m² renovation of an existing educational campus built in the 1980s completely reassesses the landscape, façade and interior. It uses color to negotiate from the urban scale to the human, and multifunctionality to assist both guided and passive learning. Densely arranged, the existing campus mirrored its tight urban surroundings. Inside its six buildings, faceless corridors were lined with rooms lacking identity o… continue

Nulla Vale House and Shed by MRTN Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/mrtn-architects-nulla-vale-house-and-shed/5106413 Wed, 17 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 To reach Nulla Vale you continue driving past Tullamarine Airport for an hour. Just past the airport the landscape changes from tract housing to pastoral land and small rural communities. Dotted along the drive are old agricultural outbuildings and early settler dwellings. Simple structures, almost primitive, that are part of the landscape. Nostalgia for this connection between land and building was the guiding principle for our Nulla Vale House and Shed. Much of Nulla Vale is ‘granite country’ a landscape that is both beautiful and harsh. A landscape created through geological conditions over millions of years and by land clearing and grazing. The granite outcrops created by the erosion of soft rocks leaving the hard igneous granite exposed. The site a 300-acre parcel of pastoral land that is dotted with granite outcrops and the occasional gum tree. Our clients are intending to eventually build their full time home on this land.

Crossboundaries’ design for the gallery space brings forth the exclusiveness of the cars while it references the Chinese collector with a local touch. The museum exhibition starts on the 3rd floor. Entering through an inviting, almost two floorshigh and bright area, passing the reception zone, whose vertical surfaces are accentuated with horizontal lighting strips interpreting the motion of speed, the visitor is being absorbed into a lower, more cozy “transitional” lounge. Through layers of red fabric in the imitation of a Chinese gate, the exhibition opens up behind.The exhibition area is subdivided into different zones with diverse qualities, some of display and some of lounging. White, light and slightly transparent fabric banners are hung from the open ceiling on this floor. While the fabric’s verticality reduces the high ceiling to a more human scale, the vast amount of white textile surfaces indicat… continue

PULS Vario by Evolution Design | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/evolution-design-puls-vario/5106411 Wed, 17 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 In March 2018, the Swiss architecture and design studio Evolution Design created a 1000sq metre office for PULS Vario, the Vienna-based, R&D subsidiary of German engineering firm PULS. The office space is specifically designed to enable this hightech team to focus on innovation. ‘Innovation and creativity can’t simply be produced on demand. These are processes that have to be enabled and supported. Our design is based on the principles of how innovation occurs to ensure it supports the people who work there in coming up with new ideas and new products,’ says Evolution Design executive director Stefan Camenzind. <b>Working together</b> The office concept is based on the Vierkanthof, a traditional Austrian farmhouse structure arranged around a square courtyard where various experts work closely together to achieve common goals.

It is the latest architect-designed house typology in the House by Urban Splash portfolio. In North Tyneside, a terrace of ten houses has been built on The Plateau of Smith’s Dock in North Shields, the former site of a thriving shipyard which has lay dormant for the past 30 years, and is now being transformed into a vibrant new neighbourhood by the joint venture. Earlier precedents in the US portfolio include Town House, designed by shedkm, a custom-build design whereby consumers could select their own floorplan. The terrace of ten Fab Houses sits in a masterplan alongside a crescent of 24 Town Houses and an 80-unit apartment, the Smokehouses, designed by SimpsonHaugh, which is still under construction.

Artek’s new office opens its doors at Mannerheimintie 12 B, an elegant 19th century building, just a few minutes away from the Artek Store. Conceived as a working showroom, the Artek office invites architects, partner dealers and business clients to visit and experience Artek’s novel approach to its own working environment. The new office is designed by British architect Sevil Peach. She states that especially in our highly digitalised times, “bringing people together builds a corporate culture and improves teamwork. Of course, people can be brought together using technology, but nothing beats face-to-face encounters”. Sevil Peach’s space solutions have a distinct objective: foster an open and productive exchange, in which colleagues combine their competence over team borders.

It had great bones but was tired & worn out after almost 40 years of use. It needed cosmetic love to bring back its former glory. It needed better lighting, some key furniture pieces & better & stronger colours to offset the interiors in their lush green garden setting. Drawing Room Architecture started by adding a palette of warm, earthy & energising new paint colours to every room. Furniture fit for an active young family was added & custom new joinery was built to add storage & new play spaces for the children. The existing windows were large & plentiful giving an ample amount of natural daylight however considered internal & external lighting was needed to balance the scale of the rooms with the tasks of the occupants.

It was for this painting that the owner wished to have a private space to admire - where he could spend his time quietly and feel the beauty of falling petals. He wanted to create simple but elegant atmosphere like luxurious hotel for his living room/study and bedroom. The building was a one-story wooden structure of 66 square meters that was build more than 40 years ago. Upon this renovation, the original main structure was kept unchanged but the west side of the house was made into a large spacious single room containing the living room/ study and the bedroom area. Storage unit between those two areas separates the room but does not close off the space, leaving openness. Kitchen and a bathroom are placed in the east side.

How do you create a distinctively ‘local’ library? Working closely with community stakeholders, the design process involved tracing the line of the nearby Murray River, then superimposing this as the cut line on a curvilinear timber battened screen. The result is a dynamic façade that wraps the perimeter of the library, filtering & throwing light into the internal library spaces. A central pathway & ceiling element, acting as a way-finding spine, runs through the centre of the library space. At its edges, a series of abstract punctuations on the perimeter allow for private & flexible break out spaces. The effect is a community space both highly flexible & adaptable. Located on the site of the existing Civic Centre, it encompasses library spaces, reading spaces, community spaces & new technology areas. Conscious o… continue

The oldest fine leather luxury goods Maison in the world has chosen the Capital of Fashion for its first Italian opening, with a jewel of a boutique, located in via Bagutta 12, in the heart of the Fashion Quarter. The project is designed by Vudafieri-Saverino Partners, Milanese Studio which since 2012 has been taking care of the Delvaux boutiques’ design worldwide (more than 40, among which the last openings in London and Hong Kong).

A lightning strike caused the original structure to burn down, therefore the owners chose not to reconstruct a thatched house due to the inflammable nature of the roof. However, features of the original house are retained by proposing a classical approach and symmetry in the new house. The new proposal is smaller than the original house and, with its division into a main house and annex wings, is less dominating and in greater harmony with the scale of neighbouring buildings. The relative positions of the building volumes also maintain the classical country home atmosphere and a cohesion with the site’s large park-like character. The buildings are located on the footprint of the original house, thus directly inserted in the existing garden. The roof is metal with vertical seams and recessed gutters.

Valencian, almost converted in Brazilian and passionate surfer she had the dream to open the first tropical sushi restaurant in her native city. This way Kaikaya was born, a project clearly inspired by Mireia’s lifestyle and that mixes elements from Japan and Brazilian tropicalismo. In the beginning of the twentieth century the first Japanese arrived to Brazil with the aim to work in the coffee plantations, although, the Japanese nutrition was totally different to the Brazilian for which they were obliged to adapt to the local ingredients. Seeking their own flavors, a new nikkei Nipo-Brazilian gastronomy flourished with a strong identity that after more than one century with its unique flavors and fusions reached international fame. Kaikaya, is the result of this history, bringing the fusion of traditional and methodic Japan with the tropical and exotic, contemporary Brazil to the center of Valencia.

Two of them are above ground and five are underground, along a route that is almost ten kilometers long. From July 22, 2018 Amsterdam residents, commuters, tourists and day trippers can travel from the north to the south of the city in just 15 minutes. <b>Public space</b> The North-South Line route has been designed as a new public layer in the city, underneath the streets and canals that have supported public and private transport for centuries. Just like the streets and canals lie openly in the public space, the entrances to the stations are also open and uncovered, functioning as an extension of the street. The shortest possible connection between street and platform ensures that the stations feel safe and are easy to maintain. The open entrances lead to halls that are still experienced as part of t… continue

This compact and ostensibly low structure blends into its surrounding green landscape and into the larger architectural ensemble of the Dutch educational campus, which includes the quintessential Cobbenhagen building of the Catholic College of Economics, constructed back in the Sixties. Located in the north-west corner of the campus, which is characterized by an orthogonal plan, the 11.000 square-meter building serves all faculties and it is in constant use by some 2.200 students and lecturers that cross its spaces every day. CUBE is anchored to the landscape by paved pathways that guide users to its entrances on the south-side corners. It is a secluded space for study that feels like an opening in the woods.

Imagined as an intimate culinary garden village, guests are welcomed to experience a new menu and philosophy that will redefine Noma for years to come. Central to the design was the idea of dissolving the restaurant’s individual functions and organising them into a collection of separate yet connected buildings. A total of 11 spaces, each tailored to their specific needs and built of the finest materials best suited for their functions, are densely clustered around restaurant’s heart putting the chefs at the heard of it all.

Since the owners of the house are personally and professionally engaged with the Tyrolean mountains the main principle was to broadcast this special bond they have with the Alps. The central thought of the project is to provide the path to a summit cross which can was visualised with the shape of the roof. This shape was constructed in a way that provides tremendous views from each direction – just as if you were enjoying the view from the summit cross of a mountain. The contours of the roof are building a free from which creates a dynamic look for the whole project. The summit cross is a visual component and the extensive integration of green areas are a perfect match for the mountainous area surrounding the building. The façade was divided into two parts to strengthen the edgy structure of the roof. Moreover, the overall shape was kept as clear and extensi… continue

The aim was to translate these key aesthetic elements with layers of black, shades of grey and textures of white. A moodiness and restrained drama is created and ultimately reflects the brand aesthetic. Sydney’s iconic Queen Victoria Building was hand-picked by OSKA Germany for their second NSW store. The brief stipulates a strictly monochrome palette and include the signature crisp white, jet black and specific grey tones. This palette is explored as an extension of the clothing; honest unassuming finishes translate an understated luxe feel. The entire store is symmetrical to make the most of the 38sqm. The change rooms are located centrally along the side walls and the linen drapery stacks away to maintain and openness to the floor area when not in use. There is an opportunity to utilise the volume of the site. A hand applied, layered paint finish is used on th… continue

Malt & Juniper by Sans-Arc Studio | Bar interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/sans-arc-studio-malt-amp-juniper/5106393 Tue, 09 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 An intimate gin & whisky bar. Paying homage to classic cocktail bars of yesteryear, Malt & Juniper is moody, slightly modernist and a bit botanical. What was the brief? The brief was for a romantic, moody space, where patron comfort is key. A requirement was an over-sized back bar to house an elaborate liquor collection and a sliding ladder to access the upper reaches. We started with these two elements; the bar as a moment of theatre and grandeur, surrounded by booths where occupants can tuck in and hideaway in the darkness. M&J’s offering inspired a botanical twist to the space, the resultant design balances modernist influences in timber panelling and stucco render with green marble and indoor planting. The space itself is narrow, with a mezzanine to the rear. The bar dominates the space, with a suspended planter, mirrors and varied lighting creating depth, layering and a sense of openness in a small footprint. A limited budget went a long way, with the client as project manager… continue

In einem nahegelegenen Wohn- und Geschäftshaus wurde ein 300 m2 grosse Rohbaufläche in eine hochwertige und technisch hochmoderne Praxis mit Praxis OP, Labor, Apotheke und Röntgenraum ausgebaut. Die grössere Fläche erlaubte es nun Doppelsprechzimmer für drei Ärzte zu realisieren. Zwei getrennte Wartezimmer ermöglichen es, Patienten gerecht zu werden, die mehr Privatsphäre wünschen. Schönheit, Natürlichkeit, Gesundheit und modernste Medizin stellten die Grundlagen für das Gestaltungskonzept der Dermatologischen Praxis, die ästhetische wie dermatologische Kunden gleichermassen ansprechen sollte.

Architect Guillermo Reynes of Gras Reynes has created an exclusive enclave of nine villas and eight apartments that capture the blue skies and bluer sea, looking towards the super-yacht harbour Port Adriano designed by Philippe Starck. The interior designers of Terraza Balear kept the outdoor spaces simple and chic, focusing on Tribù's Pavilion Daybed by Monica Armani on the pool terrace. “We didn’t want to interrupt the views. This Tribù piece doesn’t pull your attention away, but still has the luxury quality we were looking for.” In keeping with the pale stone used for the villa, Terraza Balear chose Tribù’s CTR Armchairs.

What was the brief? To add an extra bathroom to this family four bedroom, one bathroom weatherboard house. What were the key challenges? Sometimes the smallest renovation can make the biggest impact. This is certainly true for this double fronted weatherboard family house in Fairfield. With a small budget and only a 1.2m setback from the boundary - we transformed the main bedroom into a luxurious parents retreat. What were the solutions? We created a long narrow ensuite that pushes out to the boundary, and into the existing front bedroom. Creating a 1.5m wide ensuite with vanity, WC and shower all with a views to the sky and access to daylight through a full 4m long skylight.

With a new building for a full-time school with a three-field sports hall for an audience of 2,000, the city of Pforzheim sets a motivating sign to get closer to this goal. The façade alone with its generous glass surface area perks up tired students by the high amount of daylight in the classrooms. Fresh pastel green colour on floors, in staircases and on furniture spreads an energetic atmosphere flowing like a green ribbon throughout the school building.

The brief was to take the empty, irregular floor plan (demolitions had already been carried out) and transform it into the perfect home for a young professional Italian woman. The client’s wishes were an open-plan day area, a clean-lines project, loads of light, a big kitchen unit, one double bedroom that could be minimal and a bathroom, as big as possible, with natural light and ventilation, serving the bedroom but open to guests. The project had to provide plenty of storage in order to keep the spaces tidy, be very practical, while contemporary and cozy. The floor plan has a narrow central body with two peak-shaped spaces at each end, an awkwardly shaped property. A lot of thinking had to go into ways of providing space for everything.

Western Metro, Koivusaari Station by Helin & Co Architects | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/helin-amp-co-architects-western-metro-koivusaari-station/5106383 Mon, 08 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The metro project started in Helsinki in 1955, when a city council member moved that a metro be built. Because of rapid growth of population it was assumed that the street network would not have enough capacity to accommodate both private cars and public transport. Moving public transport underground was seen as a solution to the problem. The decision concerning the first phase construction was finally made in 1969, and regular traffic between Helsinki railway station and Itäkeskus (‘eastern centre’) began in August 1982. Gradually the metro line was extended both eastwards, where it reached Mellunmäki in 1989 and Vuosaari nine years later, and westwards, where the Ruoholahti stration was opened in 1993. Discussion about extending the metro line westwards to Espoo started in the late 1990s. When the western metro project was launched in 2009, Helsinki’s traffic policy was no longer defined by the needs of private motoring. According to the website of the City of Helsinki, a traf… continue

From the outset, Mecanoo’s idea was to design a station that makes it clear to visitors that they have arrived in Delft. The station, in combination with the new city hall, sits atop a new train tunnel built in place of the old concrete viaduct that divided the city in two since 1965. Coming up the escalators, the impressive ceiling with the historic map of Delft unfolds. When you look outside, you see the city and the old station as a contemporary version of Johannes Vermeer’s painting 'View of Delft’. Interweaving past and future The city of Delft reflects its past: the multitude of historic buildings and canals; the ‘Prinsenstad’ city, closely connected to the Dutch Royal Family; and, of course, the world famous Delftware ceramic factories. On the other hand, the Delft University of Technology is at the forefront of technical innovation. The character of Delft, epitomised in this combination of past and future, was the starting p… continue

To make way for a larger space to entertain and lounge around, 4 former bedrooms were reduced to 2 through the demolition of internal walls. This demolition led to the discovery of the inherent structure of the apartment. It is supported by structural shear walls. The concept of using Walls as Spatial Organizers and Dividers in this open-plan apartment was then conceived. A structural shear wall, that was left to stand in the center of the apartment after the demolition, was rendered black for visual focus and serves as a point of orientation in the apartment. It is a backdrop for a primarily black-colour home entertainment system in the lounge, minimizing its physical presence. In the Dining, it serves as a backdrop for an antique piano and Chinese Calligraphy inherited from the owner’s families. A series of grey plaster and white painted walls radia… continue

Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Subway Station by Grimshaw Architects | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/grimshaw-architects-vaughan-metropolitan-centre-subway-station/5106372 Tue, 02 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) Station, the terminal station of the Toronto York-Spadina Subway Extension was completed and opened to the public in December 2017. This exciting addition to Toronto’s Line 1 will offer a memorable commuter experience that’s also responsive to the emerging urban centre in the City of Vaughan. Connecting riders to downtown Toronto and points beyond, the new station creates new connectivity and increased transit options for a fast-growing part of the region. Working under Arup, Prime Consultant, and alongside Architect of Record Adamson Associates and artist Paul Raff, Grimshaw has developed a unique design that’s both artful and functional. Working with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), City of Vaughan, and other stakeholders to develop an appropriate plan, the VMC station was conceived as a transit mobility hub and precursor to expanding mixed-use development at the site. Grimshaw was challenged to imagine a new city around the station and… continue

Aalto University Metro Station by ALA Architects + Esa Piironen Architects | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ala-architects-esa-piironen-architects-aalto-university-metro-station/5106371 Tue, 02 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The first phase of the western extension of the Helsinki metropolitan area subway line, the West Metro – in use since November 18, 2017 - connects Ruoholahti, Helsinki to Matinkylä, Espoo. The West Metro will service over 170,000 passengers per day. The objective that has been set for the architecture of the eight new stations along the first, and the five new stations along the second phase of the extension is to create distinctive, location-specific identities for them on both urban and interior scale. At the same time the metro will act as a link between the various urban centers of the City of Espoo and in a way create its new backbone. ALA Architects and Esa Piironen Architects have designed two of the new stations along the first extension phase: the Aalto University Station and the Keilaniemi Station. ALA is additionally working on three stations in Kivenlahti, Espoonlahti and Soukka along the second extension phase to be opened for traffic in the early 2020s. Otaniemi, t… continue

Finch West by aLL Design | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/all-design-finch-west/5106370 Mon, 01 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Finch West station is located at the intersection of Keele Street and Finch Avenue West. The hydro corridor to the north of the station accommodates commuter parking for 347 vehicles, Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off with associated access roads from Keele Street. Bruce McLean, Alsop’s long-term collaborator, was appointed as artist for the station, and in this particular case the art is totally integrated into the architecture of this structure. McLean was inspired by ancient architecture – the external columns at Finch West refer to Greek caryatids and those supporting the underground roof were influenced by 6,000 year old Minorcan pillars that would have supported underground houses. The sculptural concrete forms are integrated with the supporting columns of the substation and entrance buildings, the bus canopy, and double-height columns below grade. Every visible aspect of the public space of this project aims to blend the boundaries between art and architecture. Finch West Sta… continue

Pioneer Village by aLL Design | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/all-design-pioneer-village/5106369 Mon, 01 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Will Alsop’s practice, aLL Design, in collaboration with The Spadina Group Associates (TSGA), a joint venture of IBI Group, LEA Consulting Ltd. and WSP, have designed and completed two of six stations on the Toronto Transit Commission’s (TTC’s) new TYSSE (Toronto York Spadina Subway Extension). The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension Project will provide a critical extension for the existing TTC subway system across the municipal boundary between the City of Toronto and The Regional Municipality of York. Pioneer Village station straddles the border of York Region, beneath the intersection of Steeles Avenue West and Northwest Gate, anchoring a corner of York University Campus. The station will serve as an integrated regional transport hub serving up to 20,000 subway passenger trips daily, providing 1,881 commuter parking spaces and two separate regional bus terminals. The location is otherwise underdeveloped and it is intended that the station entrances and bus terminals will c… continue

But as this new exhibition explores, breaking need not always be an act of destruction: it can also have positive connotations, and be a symbol of hope and new beginnings. Taking glass as its starting point, BRKN examines the fascinating cognitive divide between the physical and finite, and the enduring and conceptual. All is Broken at Shanghai Museum of Glass “It is the fate of glass to break:” Taking this well-known proverb as its starting point, BRKN explores how things shattered, fractured and cracked can speak to heartbreak and hope, and everything in between. With glass as their core medium - a material whose inherent fragility renders it a potent and recurring metaphor in countless languages - as well as music, 21 installations explore the connotations, implications, and possibilities of broken. Although nothing if not nuanced, the term ‘broken’ most commonly describes negative states, weighed with the implication of fina… continue

Robust and elegant, while essentially open in character, the building is distinguished by a harmonic coexistence of nature and scientific research. The Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d’Orsay (ISMO) has recently moved into new premises designed by KAAN Architecten. The building is located on the Plateau de Saclay, 20 km south-west of Paris. Initiated in 2010, and born of the fusion of three research laboratories, this higher institute for molecular physics and physico-chemistry, under the supervision of Université Paris-Sud and CNRS, employees a staff of 170 collaborators.

Sawmill harnesses the challenges and opportunities of its remote site, emphasizing sustainable strategies and reclaimed materials. Demonstrating that high design can also be high performance, Sawmill is a net-zero home that operates completely off the grid. The client brief called for a self-sufficient home that maximized connection between architecture and nature, and between family members inside. Riffing on the tradition of tents around a campfire, the house is comprised of three wings connected by the central hearth in the living area. Here, a 12-by-26-foot window wall retracts with the turn of a wheel, transforming the outdoor patio into the fourth “tent” around the fire. Tough as nails, Sawmill is made from durable materials that can withstand the harsh climate, where fires are a major hazard in summer and winters are extremely cold.

Targeting technology, arts, and cultural-based businesses, The Shop serves as a hub of entrepreneurship in the developing Downtown innovation corridor. Located in a historic 1920 former warehouse, the building was used as the headquarters for K&B, a local drugstore and soda fountain until the CAC acquired the building in the mid-1970s. The top two floors of the CAC have historically been underutilized, with The Shop marking the first large-scale renovation of that space in the last forty years. The Shop features over 40,000-square-feet of co-working space for a diverse group of creative professionals across a wide range of industries.

The aim of the interior concept is juxtaposition – the focus on fresh and crisp green meals is emphasized by the interior’s pale pink backdrop.

Founded in Innsbruck in 1920 and still today a family business, the company currently has about 260 stores mainly in Tyrol, but also in the area of Salzburg, Carinthia and South Tyrol. Having overcome the traditional strategy of brand = uniform image, each store is unique because it is the result of a relationship with the surrounding landscape and the views of the customers. The result of collaborations with different architects who are given ample creative freedom, the stores do not implement a generic format but rather experiment with cutting edge solutions both in aesthetics and environmental impact: a high level of architectural quality that has earned MPreis prestigious awards and international recognition. The company's values are also reflected in its social responsibility, contributing considerably to the region's sustainable economy. Re… continue

A large open kitchen divides the piazza into two areas with different functions: on one side the covered market with thematic kiosks that offer the chance to select and enjoy famous national dishes, on the other the "slow" restaurant for longer breaks and true chef service. The space is completed by a kitchen pantry, located on the mezzanine of every street box, featuring the best products of Italian cuisine.

The selection for the spa's wall coverings was therefore focused on ceramics that could guarantee maximum durability while expressing a strong, earthy feeling. The Petrae collection, in the variant that interprets Barge quartzite, was used for the flooring of the entrance, reception and bathing areas thanks to the wide range of available formats. In the swimming pool area, the flooring extends from the floor to the inside of the pools thanks to special pieces specifically produced with the same look. The walls of the wet area and all the floor and wall surfaces of the wellness area are made with the Larix collection: the large slats were installed in various shades to recreate the pleasant cocoon feel of wood.

An avenue facing the sea, in which a series of buildings are constructed, which, on a first impression, the urban front, in which the building is inserted, transmits a rather insipid image due to the nature of the programs and options taken in its projects. A characteristic which has become an asset in the conceptualization of the project of the Atlantic Pavilion. Besides the necessity of the City Council of Viana do Castelo having a sports pavilion, it gives support to the EB 2,3 Pedro Barbosa School and for complementarity use by the community to develop various modalities, it is mainly adjacent in the county’s objectives, to expand the population’s possibility of practising sports activities in covered facilities.

The compact volume allows the definition of a central free space, a new resident and public park that links and enhances the various elements: the new nursing home, an existing villa, an annex, a small church. The hilly landscape of the terrain has allowed dividing the road section where the main entrance is, and the park level, where all the common functions are grouped together. The parking lot was treated as a tree-lined space. The building typology is compact, with a central core. In the latter there are elevators, stairwells, and the service rooms for staff use. From the main entrance, through an entrance hall, you access directly to the upper floor, where you can find most of the common functions including physiotherapy, ergotherapy, dining, living room and bar.

Stack House by FreelandBuck | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/freelandbuck-stack-house/5106355 Thu, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Stack House is a newly built 2,207-square-foot residence designed and developed by award-winning LA and NY-based architecture office FreelandBuck. Comprised of four stories notched into a sloping hillside, this vertical house uses the subtle rotation of each room to create seamless indoor-outdoor spaces at every floor, each with unique and unobstructed views to the San Gabriel mountains. Working with difficult site constraints is central to the design of this house; unlike conventional hillside homes that appear to have been placed atop the slope, this house is embedded into it, creating a much closer relationship to the landscape. The primary living spaces at the third level (dining, kitchen, living, den) are organized into a simple grid of four rooms. The walls of each room curve at the center in a series of tangent arcs that blend the individual spaces while carefully opening views through the house. A central stair connects the living spaces to a rear dining patio and yard continue

Enjoying a privileged location overlooking the neighboring buildings and surrounded by a large terrace, this apartment showed serious deficiencies such as its small size of 38 m2. An Australian couple wanted to reform the apartment to work as an occasional residence, giving priority to the day spaces. They wanted a warm, comfortable and functional space, as versatile and with as much storage as possible. Functionally the intervention proposes the creation of a main space formed by a kitchen with an island and a living area. At night, this space turns into a bedroom through the opening of a pull-down bed integrated in the wall cabinets. Hidden behind the kitchen is a more private area, consisting of a closetstudio that gives access to the bathroom.

Therefore they organized an architectural competition. As it happened, the winning proposal came from a German team of architects. A suitable site was found in Scheffau, which is the geographical center of the three municipalities. The new building is situated at the foothills of the "Wilder Kaiser" Mountain Range, directly adjacent to a former residential and care home that no longer corresponds to the required standards. The completion and opening of the new Nursing Home was in December 2017. The building consists of two compact volumes interlocking at the central section where they form an atrium.

This 184,000-square-foot mixed-use development centered around the renovation of an existing 9-story circa 1928 building. Once the home of the largest furniture store in the South, the building was designed by Weiss, Dreyfous and Seiferth, architects of the Louisiana State Capitol. In addition to renovating the Art Deco building, the project included a 4-story addition. Specific program components include a 234-room boutique hotel, bar, restaurant, meeting spaces, and retail.

In fact, if not for the humble design elements including Douglas fir beams, high ceilings, and stall-like enclosures, there would be no indication of its original purpose. Built in 1909, and known historically as Bricca Stables, this former horse stable now boasts office space that marries the past with the present. “From a space-planning perspective, we approached it as being mostly open, but with enclosed areas for meetings,” says Tai Ikegami, managing partner at Feldman Architecture. “From a design perspective, we looked at it as making modern interventions within the historic space.” The spare, open layout contrasts with semi-transparent conference rooms that recall the horse stalls of the past.

Its size is limited by the legislation. The maximum built-up area 50 m2 and the maximum height of 5 m require a special ground-plan solution for a family holiday house. The object consists of four small masses, three of which are connected and one separated, standing nearby. The central space is accessed by a minimal entrance through the kitchen, which also has a built in component of a rather small attic space intended to be a sleeping space for children. The kitchen offers a beautiful view of the water surface, as well as the bedroom, while the living space also opens up in the other direction, to the sunlit scenery of mature oaks.

High on the owner's wish list were increased physical and visual connections between rooms and to the outdoors. A central feature of the original design was a courtyard garden, experienced primarily through the living room. Careful reconsideration of the openings surrounding this space reframed it as a tranquil organizing element of the house, central not just to the living room but also to the entry, the daily circulation paths and the more informal spaces of the home. Single pane windows were replaced and extended floor to ceiling. Upgraded insulation and high efficiency radiant floor heat allowed the removal of ductwork and low ceilings, dramatically reducing the home's energy consumption. The new project is updated and more livable but still respectful of the best elements of the original design.… continue

Guelmim Airport by Groupe 3 Architectes | Airports https://www.architonic.com/en/project/groupe-3-architectes-guelmim-airport/5106345 Mon, 17 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The new Guelmim airport is integrated in an existing military infrastructure located 3km north of the city. The stakes of the project were simplicity, efficiency, environmental control and extensibility, which is a prerequisite for the durability of an airport. It is with this objective that the construction of the building was designed in 2 phases, resulting in a linear design parallel to the runways. The terminal building consists of 2 double height halls, that hold the waiting areas which open onto the landscape on one side and on the runways on the other, protected by wide overhangs and a light-filtering façade. The low-emissivity metal filter is a patchwork of perforated panels that draw the shade and color the light, subtly evocating the decorative themes of the region. The linear main building located between the bonded zone and the duty free zone is topped with a patio that provides natural light to the heart of the building. The main issue of the project was providing… continue

Bar Torö by Masquespacio | Bar interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/masquespacio-bar-toro/5106344 Fri, 14 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Bar TORÖ is the last project by Masquespacio in Ibiza, Spain, commissioned by Servitur Group, the touristic management consultant behind hotel chain Typic Hotels. The concept of Bar TORÖ starts with the aim to develop a hospitality venue with a Mediterranean spirit, offering a service of a sports bar and Spanish tapas focused on an international clientele. The space located at the end of San Antonio, contains more than 200 m2, mostly occupied by a terrace at the edge of the sea. For the design, Masquespacio seeks to give major importance to the exterior mixing three colors: purple blue, turquoise green and mustard yellow. This way, together with the use of plants the intention was to create a modern and cheerful design. On the other hand, through the furniture layout and its design the aim was to play with the sports & tapas bar concept using areas with high and low benches, as well as zones to relax for small and big groups. Using high benches above the aim was to increase the… continue

Palexpo park hotel by group8 | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/group8-palexpo-park-hotel/5106343 Fri, 14 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The site, bordered by the airport runways, the motorway, the halls of Palexpo and the Parc Sarasin, has defined the particularities of the building. The volume creates a dialogue with the surrounding features. It runs parallel to the large halls, as does the existing administrative building, in order to define its relationship to the wooded park more precisely. The hotel, with a capacity of 227 rooms, has two layers of 2 and 3 stars combined. A cutting made in its base, corresponding to road width, reinforces the orientation to the park. The issue of scale has also determined the choice of materials: the hotel is clad in aluminium to blend in with the existing exhibition complex while creating a new visual identity. The system of metal disks, a motif borrowed from a famous dress by Paco Rabane, creates a unique image and a visual landmark that enhances the reality of the place. This visual pattern creates the perception of a speeding car, raising the question of the "decorated continue

The Perkins+Will multi-disciplinary design team provided architecture, operational planning, interior design, landscape architecture, and branded environmental and signage/wayfinding design for a fully integrated design focused on providing the most positive experience possible for patients and their families. The 176,000 square foot, 4-story building was planned for the patients’ convenience and shortened travel distances with five designated entries and nearby parking for specific patient treatments and care types. The entries support Diagnostic Imaging, Screening Diagnostics, Radiation Oncology and a main entry for first-time visitors on the first level.

Charles Smith Wines Jet City by Olson Kundig Architects | Industrial buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/olson-kundig-architects-charles-smith-wines-jet-city/5106341 Thu, 13 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Originally a Dr. Pepper bottling plant and later a recycling center, the design of Charles Smith Wines Jet City preserves as much of its hard-won industrial patina as possible, while opening up the building to the surrounding Seattle neighborhood, the runways of Boeing Field, and dramatic views of Mt. Rainier. On top of the building, nearly seven-foot-tall letters wrap the building in billboard fashion, announcing “Charles Smith Wines Jet City.” The former 32,000 square-foot building is composed of two structures, a two-floor office building and a contiguous open-structure steel truss warehouse. Together, they provide space for everything from grape crush to barrel storage and bottling, to tasting rooms and sales. The transformation of this 1960s era building involved the removal of a portion of the exterior street-side façade replacing it with a 19x60-foot span of windows, opening the building up to the neighborhood and views. Once through the twenty-foot-tall steel entry door,… continue

National borders once in need of protection are now the site of a beautiful winery and lush vineyards, carefully landscaped and maintained. The design of the winery draws on the traditions and sources of inspiration similar to the ones of the Romantic buildings of the Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape. In our case, it was inspired by the image of a classical temple, which was then transformed into an abstract form of a slab supported by three rows of columns – a pavilion standing on a solid plinth. This pavilion gently complements the green horizon and vineyards. The building is divided into two areas– the underground wine production facilities and the above-ground premises which include a wine shop, a hall and a wine tasting room. The winery makes their wine using the gravity-flow method which al… continue

Designed by the New York office of global architecture firm Perkins+Will, Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Monmouth blends evidence-based design principles, such as views to nature and abundant natural light, with the state-of-the-art cancer care that patients have come to expect from MSK. It is a radical makeover from a drab and dreary corporate setting to a warm, soothing, and even uplifting experience for cancer patients when they need it the most. “This wasn’t just a facelift of an existing space; we fundamentally changed the building’s insides,” says Robin Guenther, project director and principal at Perkins+Will. <b>Evidence-Based Design for Healing</b> What started as a 400,000-square-foot rectilinear office building with little to no natural light at its core, a private office-… continue

Designed by Perkins+Will in close collaboration with patients, families, doctors, and staff, and in conjunction with executive architects HGA and engineers Mazzetti, the facility is the second children’s hospital—and the fifth new-build hospital—in the world to earn this distinction for sustainability excellence. “The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital places a high value on its environmental stewardship and commitment to family-friendly, child-centric healing,” says Robin Guenther, FAIA, principal at Perkins+Will and project director for the hospital expansion. “As architects, it’s an honor to know that our building design is supporting the holistic healing of our population’s youngest patients.” <b>GENESIS OF DES… continue

The holding company, in ongoing expansion, partly thanks to the acquisition of a 53% interest by Francesco Trapani, former Bulgari CEO and shareholder, aims to make the Briscola format become the first Italian-made restaurant chain in Italy and abroad. In addition to the new outlets project in the Duomo and Porta Nuova areas, will be the restyling of those already in operation, also under Novembre. In 2019 the growth project will continue with further openings in London and Milan. The Novembre firm of architects, playing with shapes in shades of black, white and Bordeaux red, created an ‘underground’ environment in contrast to the mass pizza culture, raising the quality of the premises and conveying knowledge, research and culture in the space as well as in the product.

Natural materials, dark and warm colours, details inspired by nature: everything contributes to creating an intimate and pleasant atmosphere. Industrial doesn’t mean cold. To understand this, all you must do is enter the Naervaer wine bar/ restaurant in Copenhagen, certainly a place of industrial style, but intimate, welcoming, where people gather to discuss and taste wines and delicacies. To achieve this atmosphere that is informal, hospitable and full of warmth, the Norm Architects studio used a palette of dark and warm colours combined with soft lighting. The materials are chosen to complement the typically industrial space yet, by introducing shades and textures, these are able to lighten and soften the effect for a more comfortable environment. Wood, stone, metal: the various materials used are all natural and have been modified to… continue

Social Housing Croisset, Paris by Hardel Le Bihan Architectes | Apartment blocks https://www.architonic.com/en/project/hardel-le-bihan-architectes-social-housing-croisset-paris/5106333 Tue, 11 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A short distance from the Clignancourt university campus, this building of 63 housing units is part of a development composed of two apartment buildings and a university cafeteria. The massing, arranged to ensure porosity from north to south, allows the sun through onto the tree-lined Rue de Croisset. In creating a large, south-facing open area at the middle of the development and a meadow on the roof of the restaurant, we were seeking to adhere to the original spirit of the greenbelt, which is now undergoing extreme densification. Compactness, slit, cut at an angle on the corner of the site, our project gives a new reading of the architectural language of the surrounding buildings of low-cost housing in order to improve urban comfort, optimise living space and provide higher levels of glazing in the facades. Very compact, the building is elongated by studied use of a second, lightweight skin that highlights its verticality. Following aesthetic principles based on how things a… continue

Concrete Lace is illuminated by the soft golden light of the setting sun, interweaving between the concrete skeleton and becoming a part of the skyline. This curious building is part of Village 3 in the High-Tech Park master plan. Inspired by local, traditional North Vietnamese village features, the exposed courtyard radiates four pathways; connecting to the lush external landscape and acting as four entrances that reminisce the main gates of a traditional village. The grid structure of 12×25 meters allows a highly flexible and efficient use of space. Mixing green areas and open spaces they enhance the user’s experience through the building; inviting them to exchange, relax and enjoy the landscape.

The name ‘MOPA’ served as an ironic allusion to the monikers of contemporary art museums, such as MOMA, MUMOK or MOCAK, to name but a few. While visiting the temporary Future Artefacts exhibition, MOPA visitors were taken to the year 2085 to explore artefacts from the first half of the XXI century supposedly discovered during archeological excavations in Vilnius and somehow related to the Crème de la Crème boutiques chain. The exhibits of the “museum” MOPA included the current Crème de la Crème haute parfumerie assortment, which was distressed using specific techniques, as well as some employees’ clothes, other items, and magazine advertisements. By using various distressing techniques, a spectacular effect reminiscent of archaeological discoveries was created. A very special place in the exhibition wa… continue

The programme consists of twenty-five fifty-square-meter homes, a restaurant in three sections, a computer room, a hobby workshop, a vegetable garden and a petanque field. Everything is organised to foster relations among the residents. Collective living spaces are as generous as possible, with abundant natural light. We have designed places that encourage exchanges and social interaction. Encounter-inviting events and sequences punctuate the routes. The staircase stands at the centre of the building, rendering it unavoidable. In combination with the wide central space, it invites mobility.

Having spent the past decade in Oslo where Johnathon previously worked for Snohetta, Johnathon and Zoe wanted to acknowledge, not only the enduring minimal aesthetics of Scandinavian design they became attached to but the Nordic lifestyle and the value of a healthy work-life balance. ‘We are creating beautiful small buildings that allow people to connect with nature and embrace outdoor living.' Our ambition has been to create a lifestyle brand that is centred around the Nordic concept Friluftsliv (pronounced free-loofts-liv), an expression that translates to “open-air living”. Norwegian poet Ibsen described the term as the value of spending time in the remote outdoors for spiritual and mental wellbeing.

Located in a historical building, parts of which date back to 1898, and home to different media and creative offices, the new space was designed by Laura Seppänen Design Agency. Honouring both the historical bones of the building and the owners Elmo Luoma-aho and Jouni Rahikainen's food philosophy, Finnish designer Laura Seppänen has applied her clean and contemporary Scandinavian design aesthetic. Maannos offers diners a seasonal menu of largely vegetable-based dishes, using produce that has been almost exclusively grown in Finland. When translated from Finnish, the restaurant's name refers to the first and supposedly most fertile layer of soil. This was interior designer Laura Seppänen's starting point for establishing an aesthetic for the restaurant, which she decided to complete in colours akin to materials like soil, mud, clay, sand, and other elements of… continue
