West Dublin BART Apartments and Crescent Village in San Jose,California by MVE & Partners

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: MVE & Partners

While national property markets still struggle to recover, the slowdown in home-buying is bolstering demand for apartments—and creating more work for Irvine-based MVE & Partners, one of the nation’s premier residential and mixed-use architecture firms.

“Domestic real estate remains iffy, but there are pockets of recovery, including multi-family,” said Carl McLarand, AIA, chairman of MVE & Partners.  “Of course, we have been designing apartments and community developments for nearly 40 years, so this is playing to one of our strengths.”

Suha Private House in Škofja Loka, Slovenia by Arhitektura d.o.o.

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: Arhitektura d.o.o.

The presented single-family house is built in the village of Suha, in the suburbs of a famous medieval town, Škofja Loka in Slovenia. The building is built as a replacement structure on the site of a former farm building which represented the eastern side of a unified space of a farm courtyard. Due to the cultural heritage regulations the new building has a gabled roof and follows the gauges of maximum allowed building dimensions of the demolished structure. The investor of the new building is the farm owner’s son, who is academically educated and therefore has very urban housing needs in terms of the program of the house, which is located in a traditional rural area.

Umarmung, a floor-sitting couch in Tokyo, Japan by Cheungvogl

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source:  Cheungvogl

Umarmung is inspired by the long tradition of floor-sitting culture in Japan where the connection between the body and conversations is not restricted to universal seat height and conventional definition of sofa. Much to our surprise, through our research and conversations with local manufacturers, the floor-sitting couch is unknown and non-existent in Japan furniture design other than the zaisu chair (legless chair) used for tatami room.

Webber Street Studio in London, UK by Chiara Ferrari

Article source: Chiara Ferrari

Emerging designer Chiara Ferrari masterminded the interior concept and fit out of a new studio space in South London, for photographer John Ross. When Ferrari was invited to work on the photographic studio’s interior design, the large, 400-sq meters space was just an empty concrete shell with no partitions. The designer’s concept plays with the contrasts between the existing space’s rough- and-ready quality and the sophistication of a new, neutral (black, white and grey) and contemporary material and colour palette.

Garden of Love and Fire in Almere, Netherlands by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

This quiet meditation garden completed in 1992 is located in the ‘town without a history’ of Almere, The Netherlands.

The garden consists of an observation platform, three narrow water canals, and a fourth dry channel on which an oblong volume is resting.  These lines direct themselves toward three particular locations: Salamanca, Paris, and Almere. They signify a world location in which love (Juan de la Cruz) and fire (Paul Celan) intersect in Almere’s future. The inscribed ciphers refer to the encounter between Juan de la Cruz and Paul Celan in the newly reclaimed land. They become readable at precisely those times when the materiality of forms dissolves into oblivion.
