Monconseil Retirement Home in Tours, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

This retirement home is being built in Monconseil’s Urban Development Zone (ZAC in France), in the northern suburbs of the city of Tours, where this building will be one of the first footprints in the area. The project, which consists of 81 beds spread across three units, was defined from the beginning by specifications that sought to take up and organize an ideal amount of the site’s surfaces. Respecting these specifications to the letter would have led us to a ground floor organization around internal courtyards spread over the entirety of the site.

Neil Barrett Flagship Store in Tokyo, Japan by Zaha Hadid Architects

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects
More projects by Zaha Hadid

Our concept for the Neil Barrett flagship store in Tokyo is based on the minimal cut of the brand`s fashion design and parallels its approach in using the same design parameters of fixed points, folding, pleating and cut outs. Rather than defining a single room or space, our design creates a circular passage allowing the customer to experience the space in multiple ways and interpretations. Furniture staged in key points throughout the store creates the spatial concept of a narrow enclosure changing to an open condition. In two formal elements the design shifts between architecture and sculpture, where a compact mass of surface layers unravel and fold to form the shelving display and seating. The emerging folds will be used as display area for the NB accessory collection.

Archeological Section of the Sant’Agostino Museum in Montalcino, Italy by Fabio Capanni

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Fabio Capanni

In a land consolidated by history, as is Tuscany, if you want to express originality that isn’t trivial or, worse still, elegantly empty, it’s better to surrender immediately and identify past themes that can accompany us into the future. Fabio Capanni Workshop has been pursuing this path for some time. The redesign of the basement of the old convent of Sant’Agostino has been the chance to have a direct confrontation with history.
