House in Bellmund, Switzerland by EXH Design

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Article source: EXH Design

This house for a family of four is located in Bellmund, Switzerland, nearby Biel. Situated on a small plot, the structure’s “house” shape maximizes its height to ensure views of Lake Biennem, while a terrace space is cut from the roof volume. The house has a wood structure, as is usual in Switzerland. The skin is clad in grey industrial panels – a rough and weather resistant material with low costs.  In contrast to the modest and functional exterior, the wooden structure is revealed within to give the interior an inviting sense of warmth.

Placed on a gentle slope on the southern shore of Lake Biel, the new edification was built on the old romantic garden of a 19th century villa that no longer exists. The remaining parts of it, an ancient cave, a pond and the vegetation, were kept and form part of the new project.

Wanderlust Hotel ( Level 1 – Reception + Restaurant Interior) in Little India, Singapore by Asylum

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Article source: Asylum

Hidden amidst the myriad of industrial shops, alongside flower sellers and street-side newspaper vendors in the vicinity of Little India, lies an eclectic boutique hotel – Wanderlust, which was originally an old school in the 1920’s. Derived from the concept “Industrial Glam”, anachronistic industrial elements that could be found within a stone’s throw made its way into the first level of the hotel with an unexpected twist. Filling the space with counters constructed by raw oxidized steel, neon signs set against tinted mirrors and re-constructed supermarket carts, the juxtaposition of these varied elements nevertheless permeate the interior with a quirky character.

Our friend and client found this old house in the district of Palermo in Buenos Aires. The house had potential. However, it was in need of a complete restoration: several insensitive interventions throughout the years had caused damage to the original profile, making it gloomy and desolated.

Sweet Parliament Home in Gwangju, South Korea by Andres Jaque Arquitectos

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Article source: Andres Jaque Arquitectos

A project by Andrés Jaque Architects for the Gwangju Design Biennale 2011

Homes tend to be thought of like places where conflict, diversity and collective are left behind to find familiarity and unpolitical calm. But a number of daily evidences could be seen as an opportunity to think domestic interiors as places where we get to meet social networks (both online and offline), to manage our associations and to take part in discussion arenas. Shared homes are parliaments in which we get to share our living, get connected and confront otherness. Homes are material and non-material conglomerates of problematic limits. Insides that get shaped as interscalar selectively connected multilocations.
