SZWALNIA club & amp;restaurant by WAMHOUSE s.c.

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: WAMHOUSE s.c.

About the collection “XII”

The collection “XII” will consist of 12 thematic interior designs, together with furniture and fittings, which in each part will be interconnected, not only in terms of style, but also by name. Each subsequent design will be created within one month, and the entire collection will take one year to create.

Here, visualization is to constitute more than a design, which is thrown away after implementation of the interior design, but mainly an image, which has a deeper meaning and can function individually, for instance as a print on a wall, or even a CD cover.

The Chazen Museum of Art by Machado and Silvetti Associates

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Machado and Silvetti Associates

From the project’s earliest stages, the goal has been to create a strong physical connection and sense of continuity from the existing museum to the addition. Building on this initial concept, two other very important relationships that have been a focus of the project are the connection from outside to inside and from the addition’s entrance level to its main gallery level.

A. H. McCoy Federal Office Building in Jackson, Mississippi by Schwartz/Silver Architects

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: Schwartz/Silver Architects

Constructed as part of the General Services Administration’s Design Excellence program, Schwartz/Silver’s modernization of the A. H. McCoy Federal Building and new security pavilion has dramatically changed the urban landscape in Jackson, Mississippi. The architects took the opportunity to redefine the relationship between the city and the federal government at this site. The re-envisioned plaza provides a landscaped oasis in the city for the employees and visitors who utilize the building. And by reaching out towards the corner of the site, the invitingly scaled security pavilion creates a welcoming entry point for the building.

RESTAURANTE EL MERCA’O in PAMPLONA, Spain by VAÍLLO & IRIGARAY + GALAR

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: VAÍLLO & IRIGARAY + GALAR

We like the restaurants that change: that every time you go are different … changing your emotions with the type of event you want, with the environment you want to recreate … (we hate the feeders) …
we like places that speak of where you are, the climate in which they are involved, what they have at them side…
we like the restaurants that have appropriate corners, dwellings which can be tailored to each …
… seldom have found … perhaps that is why we accept the challenge of build a restaurant in a merca’o

One Workplace in Santa Clara, California by Design Blitz

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: Design Blitz

The One Workplace Headquarters project was a unique opportunity for both One Workplace and for Design Blitz. One Workplace is the largest furniture dealer in Northern California and the single source for Steelcase furniture in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ambitious directive was to re-define the architectural standard not only of the company, but also of the showroom experience itself and create a bleeding edge, world-class workplace that serves both employees and customers alike. One Workplace had already shifted the industry paradigm of sales and showrooms away from a transactional experience to one of collaboration and partnership.
