University College Ostfold Halden in Halden, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Architects (Designed using MicroStation)

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Architects

The key notion of the architectural strategy is the location’s natural features and the use of a limited material palette. The project is situated in an old “culturscape” and special attention is paid to integrate it into its surroundings. The design is based on simple geometrical prisms, lines and slabs composed into a complex lay-out of rooms and functions. Critical functions and lines of communication are emphasized and the building expresses a balance of functional efficiency and open perspectives.

Memphiskyodai in Tokyo, Japan by Kosuke Kajikawa

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Article source: Kosuke Kajikawa

It is a bar located in a shopping district in Shimokitazawa. Looking at the bare dismantled concrete space, we decided to carefully minimize what we added to the space. For the interior design of the store, materials and colors were purposefully selected to be simple and minimalist. We balanced with scrupulous care what to remodel and what to leave. We thought an unostentatious design could produce a space that would become a background of the visitor,the furniture and music by making the most of the virtue the space had originally had.
