WAPPA BOUTIQUE by Joan puigcorbé

 
July 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  joan puigcorbé

Through the repetition of a frame and variation of its shapea vacuum is formed, that without initial features, becomes an architectonic space full of possibilities;a space that lends itself to the interpretation of the ritual that make up theselection, purchase and enjoyment of select pieces of clothing. Treated as a proscenium andstage, both are merged into one continuous space covered under the sinuous texture of theatrical drapery, where the client takes on the leading role in an act that transcends the mere purchase, sublimating the process that heightens the enjoyment of clothing.

The McIlwrick Street Residences are a three-townhouse development located on a single residential block in Windsor. Like an old European village, the development is a small cluster of buildings you can see through and walk between such that the significant addition feels as though it could have always been there.

TWO MOON in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
July 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

The client:

Sometimes, clients bring in a clear idea or a name of a place they envision. This time, a movie named two moon junction surfaced when we first met. He talked about building a private cultural center centered around a coffee shop and a gallery. A free spirited space , somewhat erotically charged like the movie,  a place full of festivity and relaxed atmosphere. The other important criteria included providing two separate buildings,  one for the client, and the other for his younger brother.  The budget was extremely low, so from the start we decided to build simple boxes with some impact points.

Scouting Rhenova in Utrecht, The Netherlands by EVA

 
July 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: EVA 

Commissioned by the scouting association Rhenova, this is a clubhouse designed on a triangular site adjacent to the Leidsche Rijn Park. We chose an autonomous, oval volume that fits within this context. As a Scouthome, it was important that the inside and outside — the building and the grounds — interact. But also that it be a familiar, tough building.

July 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PAREDES PEDROSA ARQUITECTOS  

The village is small and the building is of a small scale, with a correspondingly small budget and program that included formal configuration of this square, a transcendental feature of rural Spanish life that the village lacked.

Dual sports hall in Borex-Crassier, Switzerland by Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

 
July 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

The expansion of the existing sports hall is the result of a competition and left little margin of freedom because of a limited perimeter. Due to its position, the new extension reinforces the western boundary with the countryside and takes advantage of the break in terrain in order to reduce the impact of volume on the site. The quest for continuity with the existing building dictates the rules in terms of extension volume. The “fusional” approach adopted towards the existing structure allows to define a single entrance for the three sports halls.
