School in Balsiai in Vilnius, Lithuania by a.s.a. Sigitas Kuncevičius Architecture Studio

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: a.s.a. Sigitas Kuncevičius Architecture Studio

This primary school designed for 828 pupils is the first modern school that was built from scratch in Vilnius in the 20 years since Lithuania’s independence. As the surrounding urban fabric has no cohesive urban concept, the new school was intended to give the area an unequivocal focal point. It is also intended to serve a broader function for the wider community after school hours and over weekends.

Article source: Giaquinto Architetti Associati

The project is the renovation of a famous club in London located next to Regent street.

The organizational scheme is due to similar patterns of organic micro-structures, more in line with patterns of liquid and/or gelatinous geometry than with Cartesian structures. It sets up a framework by using a soft geometry and a unified airy treatment of space.

John W. Olver Transit Center in Greenfield by Charles Rose Architects Inc

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: Charles Rose Architects Inc

Situated in historic Greenfield’s business district and constructed of traditional materials that complement the town’s stately brick buildings, the John W. Olver Transit Center represents a significant technological departure from the past: With its dramatically limited emissions, it anticipates the future and President Obama’s executive order requiring that all new federal buildings achieve net-zero by 2030. Embedded in the building’s design are numerous strategies for energy conservation and generation. For example, the textured brick cladding the western side is a respectful nod to Greenfield’s past, but its main purpose is green: a high-tech strategy in managing the building’s exposure to afternoon sun. In parts, the brick dissolves and the façade becomes a kind of screen; these patterns control the amount of heat entering the building’s interior in summer and winter.

The extension of the institute professionnel et technique de court-saint-Etienne is enigmatic and refined. we are struck by the shape of the building, designed by a229, and its dialogue with the surrounding area. Besides its environmentally responsible character, it shows that contemporary architecture has a role to play in public architecture.

KABC was hired by Balzac Coffee (Balzac Caffé) renamed to redesign the chain after the company merged with World Coffee in 2011. Services included formulating a brand strategy and subsequently a brand experience comprised of graphic services, signage, architectural design, and interior design. The brand strategy is based on the original brand values of the founder of Balzac coffee as well as current coffee shop trends observed in New York City. The second part of KABC’s services was to translate the developed brand into a series of distinct and memorable experiences for guests.

This Balzac Coffee Shop was the first shop realized for the brand. It is located in Main-Taunus Center, a brand new shopping development outside Frankfurt, Germany.

The Balzac Coffee brand and subsequent interior design have been developed from the types of products the stores will sell. Coffee will always be sold, while extra offerings like Panini, frozen yogurt, and specialty shakes will change based on what is popular at that particular time. Similarly, classical furniture which evokes a timeless quality will be built into the store, while whimsical accent pieces juxtapose the minimalist sensibility.

The shop near Frankfurt features the signature Balzac Caffé wooden frame on the outside. Upon entering, shop patrons are greeted with a 9 meter long, wooden counter that defines the narrow linear space.

It is shaped and intended to be more like a bar counter as opposed to the typical service counter, and will act as a social zone for people to enjoy coffee and additional items each Balzac store will offer.

This minimal environment is made cozy through playful and artisanal accent elements that will be changed more often, including the menu boards, graphical styles, and seating upholstery.
