Bureau 100 in Quebec, Canada by NFOE et Associes Architectes

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: NFOE et Associes Architectes

A new office for the century-old firm NFOE et associés architectes
NFOE et associés architectes, founded in 1912, recently moved its offices into Old Montreal. The building, the first skyscraper in Montreal – better known as the New York Life Building (1887–89) – stands out from its surroundings for its exuberant cladding of Scottish red sandstone and red granite from the Thousand Islands. NFOE’s Bureau 100 facing the historic Place d’Armes square, is thus integrated with an environment that evokes the history of the firm founded by Ernest I. Barott (as Barott, Blackader & Webster) in 1912.

Article source: Sid Lee Architecture

Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica turned the parking area at Place des Arts into a Salon Urbain, a versatile new space ideal
for meeting up before or after a musical performance, a gallery visit or a conference. The Salon Urbain fully captures the
artistic appeal of the site, located at the St. Urbain entrance of the Place des Arts and next to the new concert hall.
“The Salon Urbain boasts a conveniently central location, but it really comes to life during events,” explains Martin Leblanc,
architect and partner at Sid Lee Architecture. “The space is a destination in itself and a welcoming prelude to the musical
and social experience it precedes.”

Krea Arts Centre in Vitória, Spain by Roberto Ercilla

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: Roberto Ercilla

The solution proposed for the Art Centre is basically articulated around a dialogue between the old convent and the new building. A building-corridor winds next to the old building and goes over it to end up inside the cloister. It is conceived to be an icon, with an image that is formal and categorical yet simple and recognizable, which contrasts the former convent. Each building has an independent interpretation and they confront each other without establishing formal competition.

Hashi Mori in Berlin, Germany by Affect Studio

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: Affect Studio

Located in the heart of Berlin, this newly completed izakaya restaurant combines traditional Japanese materials and hand craft with 3D modeling and computer programming to form an atmospheric space for dining. Responding to the client’s wishes for a cozy space that establishes a visual identity for the restaurant while also maximizing table count, the entire design intervention is achieved without the use of a single wall. A 56 sq meter ceiling installation serves as the main design feature of the restaurant.
By using the chopstick as a simple, repeating element, the project creates an immersive and highly intimate canopy over the space.
