Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York by studioMDA

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: studioMDA

Located in the densely populated gallery neighborhood of Chelsea in Manhattan, the Paul Kasmin Gallery seeks to create a new dialogue between pedestrian, visitor, and art.  The design of the gallery creates a clean open space connecting the street to the inside.  The gallery features a floor to ceiling glass façade, allowing over sized pieces of art to be delivered.  The interior space benefits from a large skylight, flooding the space with natural light.

Article source: Capella Garcia Arquitectura

Jaleois a Spanish word that means shindig, fun, racket, hubbub… It’s something positive, festive, good-natured. This is the aim behind the interior design of the new restaurant. What’s more the word jaleo starts with the initial letters of the name José Andrés. So the design of Jaleo is a mixture of the festive spirit and the particular personality of its owner, one of the most daring culinary creators on the planet.

Silverhurst in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects; VIVID

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept design for this home, a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles. SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and ANTONI ASSOCIATES were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion.  The facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. The interiors, by ANTONI ASSOCIATES, are equally sculpted.

Umwelt Arena in Spreitenbach, Switzerland by Rene Schmid Architekten

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: Rene Schmid Architekten


Aesthetics and ecology converge in the architecture of the Umwelt Arena. A striking architectural feature of the Umwelt Arena is the crystalline roof structure with the photovoltaic system integrated into the building. This is intentional design. The large hall (arena) forms the centrepiece and conveys an open and inviting atmosphere. Solar heat is used to cool the Umwelt Arena in summer and heat it in winter. This is done by means of a distribution network (TABS) in the concrete floors and an earth tube system beneath the base plate of the bottom parking level. Cold water circulates through the network of pipes in summer, hot water in winter.

Casa Tierra in Mexico City by Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos

The master plan for Cumbres de Santa Fe was developed under the premise that landscape architecture is the one the of the modern urban professions of design and represents a synthesis of art, science and philosophy aiming to take care of the scenery of the earth in a truly holistic, creative and sustainable way.

Cumbres de Santa Fe is a development located in an 80 hectares lot in the west of Mexico City. It is surrounded by three streams (Helechos, Atzoyapan and Grand Entrance stream) that were taken into consideration when conceiving the project with the commitment to have a total respect for these protected ecological areas and to incorporate them into the landscape design. The privileged location of this development, with all this green areas around it, is the intrinsic value that makes it stand out as a true example to the community.
