Busan Opera House in South korea by Lacoste+Stevenson Architects

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Lacoste+Stevenson

To maximise the amount of parkland and allow large outdoor events to take place on the new island created in the port of Busan, South Korea, the Opera House is a compact design.  The building is an interpretation of Korean stone art or Suseok.  It is an intriguing, shiny, scaleless object.  When not in use, this solid shape is entirely closed.  In the morning, it opens up like the entrance of a space ship, a large gangway lowers down creating a monumental stair for boarding.

Fire Depatment in Montblanc, France by Arriola & Fiol arquitectes

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Arriola & Fiol arquitectes

The project is organized around a central hall where the fire trucks are parked. The rest of the program, that is, the sitting and dining room, kitchen and bedrooms in the second floor, are complementary to this main working room. This concept is carried out to the spatial volume of the fire station, where the roof of this central room is extended to the whole building and to its façades. The four doors for the cars, as big squared mouths opening at different directions, reinforce the movement of the building. The alignments of the building and its three dimensional volume refer to the dented line of the Montsant hills in the background.

This bakery is a brand new project for the family behind the renowned Omonia brand famous for its Greek pastries. It sells pastries and breads prepared on premises in the see-through kitchen. The design of this store celebrates indulgence… the suspension of one’s everyday grind through the consumption of a sweet delight. The space is soft and warm… sexy and decadent… as chocolate.

Garden House in Tokyo, Japan by Kochi Architects Studio

Mix house into garden
I don\’t want to see the garden but feel like standing in the garden. Two boxes, residence and atelier are located in the large garden. To mix house and garden, the exterior wall are made by glass. I put two boxes with touching by the corner, and put a small glass box beside the corner. People are coming and going between two boxes, and are seeing exterior wall melting into the garden with each other.

Lamar Advertising Headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

This new corporate headquarters for a local advertising agency is a reaction against the standard issue office environment. People require interaction in today’s workplace as they go to work to collaborate, to brainstorm, to do research, to do a range of activities they don’t necessarily think of as “work” in the traditional sense of the word. Much of what we observe in creative environments is a more informal interaction in settings not typical or traditional, such as chance meetings in corridors or conversations around the coffee pot.

Our design is structured to reinforce that culture of openness. To accomplish this, we have radically altered the internal configuration of a 1970’s era data center while leaving the exterior essentially unchanged.

North-south oriented building site with remains of an old orchard is located in the IV. zone of the Protected Landscape Area of the Czech Central Mountains (the Czech name is “Ceske stredohori”). Spare building development in the nearest neighborhood is of a diverse character – terraced houses, prebuilt houses, and cottages of various age, size and quality.

Dekko Café is a restaurant/café in the heart of Astoria [Queens, NY]. Designed for Chef Eric Hara [Chef at the Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel], this venue offers casual dining through a contemporary American menu with influences from Mediterranean, French, and Asian cuisines. The openness of the venue to the street and its expansive frameless, operable window systems [they fold totally to show simple wall openings] are at the origin of the name Dekko, which is the British idiom for “look”.

The site is 150 acres of agricultural land at the edge of Toulouse, near a large international airport serving the region, and one of the largest and economically important Airbus factories in the city. The client – Société Publique Locale d’Améngement (SPLA) – has decided to relocate the existing Parc des Expositions (PEX) in Toulouse from the city centre to this new location in order to be “closer to the infrastructure and services consistent with economic development of the city”.
