Alexis in Bratislava, Slovakia by Martin Jancok and Ales Sedivec

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: Martin Jancok

How can a small bookshop compete within a network of firmly established booksellers? What can it offer to customers? How can it draw attention? Our aim was to create a flexible space that would not only sell books but would also be capable of facilitating various collateral events such as projections, readings, minor concerts, workshops, etc. Two focal points of the bookshop are placed at both ends of the longitudinal space. A checkout is next to the entrance and a coffee bar is on the opposite side on an original elevated gallery.

VilLA NM in New York by UNStudio

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: UNStudio

Vacation home

VilLA NM not a regular house, it is not meant for everyday living. It is a house for summers, for weekends, for stolen time. This is a house that you share with your immediate family, with your most intimate friends. The house is compact, as vacation homes often are: like the dacha and lake-side cabin of Russia and Scandinavia the house offers a simple, private, family and nature orientated retreat from urban life. There is none of the clutter of regular life; the house allows you to move through the pleasures of the day with unencumbered ease. All white and smooth, VilLA NM is a futuristic hut; a rural retreat for a family of idealistic, glamorous urbanites.

In a world where design contaminates every possible field of technical knowledge and theoretical thinking, where we have reached such an advanced state of urbanity, landfills still represent an exceptional void of intentions.
