Céline Flagship Store in Miami, Florida by VALERIO OLGIATI

Article source: VALERIO OLGIATI

A marble shell is laid over an existing two-storey structure. The facades, floors, walls, ceilings are entirely made of marble. The blue-green Pinta Verde from Brazil is exceptional and creates a wonderful atmosphere for Céline. The exhibition space on the ground floor is a canopy, held by concrete pillars. These columns connect the entire building to the foundation. The virtual world exists in parallel with the physical. Above is a space deep inside the marble, where shoes and ready-to-wear are displayed. More tent than boutique, this is a place where an internal universe can be imagined.

Located in the heart of Tirana, in the same urban district as the historical residence of Albanian Communist Party leader Enver Hoxha, the Blloku Cube is the new multifunctional center signed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, now under construction.

The building stands right on the junction between the streets of Pjeter Bogdani and Vaso Pasha, in the heart of the Blloku, one of the most prestigious districts in Tirana which, in the post-communist era, has gone from being a military zone of restricted access to a nerve center of city life, thanks to the proliferation of facilities, shops, bars and restaurants lining its characteristic and regularly shaped blocks. It is on these two streets that the main entrances of the building are positioned, to serve the retail center and the offices.

Putting student activities on display to encourage diverse use of space

LC8 (Learning Commons Hachioji) is an on-campus “third place” for students at Kogakuin University. Located on the first through fourth floors of the new Building 2 at the Hachioji Campus, the space was conceived in the campus general plan as a new kind of learning site for gathering and engaging in discussion outside of the classroom. This “learning commons” combines the functions of library, learning support center, and student hall typically found at any university, also goes beyond these conventional functions to provide flexible shared space that gives rise to a diversity of student activities.

Shoreditch hotel in London, England by AQSO arquitectos office

The intersection of Old Street and Great Eastern Street is an iconic landmark in East London. The ancient Roman street widens on the western side after crossing what is being called the Silicon Roundabout, the intersection of City Road, and opens the doors of Shoreditch at Haggerston.

This junction is not only significant from the morphology of the urban fabric but also for becoming a regeneration catalyst in this old industrial area influenced by the City of London that has experienced an important creative and artistic boom.

Stouffville Residence in Toronto, Canada by Trevor McIvor Architect Inc.

 
October 15th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

Resting on a rolling field, this modern rural country home outside Toronto was inspired by the stone walls that were used to separate farmer’s fields.

Stouffville Residence is grounded in the earth while being cantilevered over a vast landscape. The stone entry wall, low and private, hints program through a series of translucent glass boxes punching through the otherwise monolithic wall. This wall acts as a key organizational element anchoring a series of glass volumes that open up to the south of the building overlooking the property and offering commanding views of the landscape. The orientation of the project intends to minimize the building’s impact on the area while maximizing site lines and access to natural daylight. The roof seemingly floats above the stone entry wall suggesting a more gestural and dynamic roof on the dwelling’s other face.

Caterpillar House in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California by Feldman Architecture, Inc.

Article source: Feldman Architecture, Inc.

The design for the Caterpillar House, sited on the softly rolling hills of the Santa Lucia Preserve, sought to accentuate a connection to the land. Having lived in a Cliff May home, the client came to the project with a love of modern ranch houses and looking for an environmentally-conscious response to a beautiful site. The Caterpillar House implements sustainable elements while exploring a contemporary version of the ranch ideals: massing that is low and horizontal, an open plan with a strong connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, and main living areas that center informally on the kitchen.

La Tournette in Paris, France by FREAKS

La Tournette (the turntable)

The owners of an old high-ceilinged typical parisian style workshop asked FREAKS to design a ponctual living space that could evolve according to their different activities allthrough the day.

We proposed to work on the night part as a mezzanine on top of the bathroom and kitchen located in the back of the volume, taking advantage of the height.

In the foreground, a large monolithic and sculptural mobile cupboard includes shelves and a folding table and organizes the space in many configurations depending on where it is positioned.

“La tournette” is the name given in french to the rotating stage used for theater or opera that allows to quickly change the scenery while eventually participating in the staging itself.
