Louis Vuitton New York Offices and Showroom in New York by ikon.5 architects

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The offices of Louis Vuitton is an interior renovation of the eighth and ninth floor of the flagship store at 1 East 57th Street New York, New York. The design incorporates a neutral and minimal palette inspired by the colors, textures and patterns of the Vuitton design tradition. The bright white surfaces of the walls and ceiling and interior glass partitions assist in harvesting light from the perimeter offices and delivering it to the center workstations. Luxurious wood floors are used in the showroom to convey a warm rich experience that is both modern and timeless.

Jidaiya Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan by GENETO

The renovation of this historical costume makeover studio in Arashiyama, Kyoto, has been completed. A 40 year old building that seemed like a traditional old house has been renovated to a modern shop. There was a need for us to find a design solution that took into account the local-ism and landscape features of Arashiyama, Kyoto. Not many buildings consider the landscape that they inhabit. Even though there are limitations to the form and finishes of buildings due to landscape regulations around this area. The buildings that have generic tourists attraction features, historical architecture and a traditional Kyoto town houses create a miscellaneous town.

This project is renovation of a second-hand house that was made by the two by four method. We designed only second floor in which young couple wanted to live with daughter. Their original demand was living in large one-room without walls, but there was limit to remove walls because of structural restriction of the two by four method. 2×4 houses have been spread on account of speed and easiness of construction. However, it’s difficult to change plan in terms of house renovation.
