Contemporary Garden Studio Room/ Slough, UK

Set in the rural forests of England, the cedar clad ‘guest house’ is nestled amongst the trees as if it belongs there. The garden studio includes a bathroom, living area and separate bedroom, thus forming a self-contained Bauhaus-esque living space. In addition it incorporates a 4m extended decking area to provide space for outside relaxation and entertainment.

Decameron store in São Paulo, Brazil by studio mk27

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Article source: studio mk27

The showroom of the Decameron furniture store is located on a rented site in the furniture commercial alley in São Paulo. To make the quick and economic construction viable, the project worked with the premise of a light occupation of the lot, basically done with industrial elements, which could easily be assembled.

Perspective (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

The space was constructed through a mixed solution, with maritime transport containers and a specifically designed structure. Despite the spatial limitation imposed by the pre-determined dimension of the containers, the piece has impressive structural attributes that makes piling them possible. Two stories of containers form tunnels where products are displayed side by side.

Perspective (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

The ample span, necessary to show furniture in relation with each other, is constructed by a metallic structure. This space is closed, in front and in back, by double-height metal casements with alveolar polycarbonate. At the back of the lot, there is a patio filled with trees and a pebbled-ground. When both doors are simultaneously opened, the whole store becomes integrated with its urban context. At rush stressful hours, by opening only the back doors, the store becomes self-absorbed, ruled by the presence of the inner-garden.

Exterior View (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

On the back of the site is the office, closed by a glass wall that enables the designers to take part on the sales life. Two edges of the design process in contact through the inner patio as other opposing strengths also meet at this small project: The intensity of the urban life and a small nature retreat, the power of the containers and the lightness of the metallic structure and finally, the linearity of the tunnels and the cubic volume.

Inariyama Special Education School in Nagano Prefecture, Japan by Atsushi Kitagawara Architects

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Article source: Atsushi Kitagawara Architects

Inariyama Special Education School (School for mentally and physically challenged students)

We proposed the concept “school as a town”. The “town”-concept comprises two different meanings: The school itself is a town as well as it connects to the surrounding town. We designed several school buildings that are – just like a real town – surrounded by courtyards, open spaces, and small vegetable fields, in order to stimulate activities of children and the entire community.
