Dining Womb by John Lum Architecture Inc.

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: John Lum Architecture Inc.

The Dining Womb was created for the 2010 DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) fundraiser whose simple brief was to create tables for dining, which were viewed and used by patrons during the event.   Typically dominated by interior designers who create decorative and theatrical table tops, we wanted to get beyond the superfluous, and focus on the critical elements necessary for a great dining experience; namely intimacy, intrigue and sensuality.  As architects, we wanted to create something that was rigorous and functional, with a strong conceptual, structured form.  Our brief required us to seat twenty individuals.

  • Architect: John Lum Architecture Inc.
  • Name of Project: Dining Womb

  • Lighting Advisor: Scott Dumas, David Scott Lighting
  • Software used: Rhino 5.0, 64-bit for the 3D work and the Maxwell Render plug-in for rendering.  The workflow includes photoshop, Illustrator, and Vectorworks as well.

Pawling House in New York by SPG Architects designed using Vectorworks

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: SPG Architects

This 3,330 SF weekend getaway provides a private refuge for a NYC couple.  The house sits on 5 semi-private acres.  Its pavilion-like form nestles into a rise in the landscape allowing for the 2-story bedroom zone to seamlessly link with the main living areas, which contain living, dining, and kitchen functions.  A dining terrace and a private master bedroom suite garden are defined as exterior rooms by concrete half walls that are extensions of the main house form.  The gestural roofline slopes upward from the closed front facade to the more open rear facade and provides a sense of soaring relief as the occupant moves from the entry court to the expansive views beyond.

Party Animal in Praça de S. Paulo, Portugal by LIKEarchitects

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: LIKEarchitects

Regardless of its obvious architectonic and historic value and its central location in the city of Lisbon, the square of S. Paulo has been merely a passage site on the way to the underground clubs and bars on the downtown area – paradoxically marginal and desert in the centre of the city.

Wohnzimmer House in Vienna, Austria by Caramel architekten zt gmbh

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Article source: Caramel Architekten

A family with one child and maybe more to come dreams of moving from their apartment in the middle of the city to a house at the periphery with plenty of green. They envision children playing in the grass, the parents and their friends sitting amongst them, and all around nothing but green, trees, pure nature. The purchased property is a 500-square-meter plot, a grassy meadow with trees. Four levels, three above ground and one below, are to yield a total of 300 m² of living space.
