Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Garcia Tamjidi Architecture Design

A home improvement marketplace technology company, this open and collaborative work environment was designed with a balance of open office work benches, and spaces for meetings, meditation, play and private phone calls. A gated area with lockers for personal storage encourages bicycle commuting and use of the Bay Trail along the edge of the San Francisco Bay. Techshed’s brand is expressed with an impactful punch of brand color and in the form of the plywood sheds that house meeting and meditation rooms. An open Café with a robust audio visual system doubles as an all hands meeting and presentation space.

Takeo Kikuchi Store in Shibuya, Tokyo by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

When we were commissioned to design this store, it was a year after the Great Tohoku Earthquake. From experiencing such great disaster we realized the importance of communication in communities, and began to question the present situation of retail stores that are typically glass-clad buildings with no operable windows, where no interaction between street and store would happen.

Sensacions Catering in Barcelona, Spain by Denys & von Arend

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Denys & von Arend

The table is set!

Whenever you try to create a brand from scratch, to corporatize, beautify or modernize a concept traditionally associated to low costs and immediacy, as it is the case with  take away food retail, there´s always the latent risk of snatching at the same time the personal aura, the crafty feeling and the accessible appeal this type of commercial establishments usually have. Therefore, the operation of transforming a former basement garage, in downtown Sabadell, into a catwalk for “Haute Cuisine Pret-a- Porter” was evidently raised from the very beginning as a major challenge that needed to harmonize all contradictions that such merger of concepts arose, while space distribution and overall branding needed to fulfill the needs of two quite distinct activities, address two different audiences, and promote, simultaneously, two ways of consuming high-class catering and low cost gourmet dinners.

Concrete House in Mar Azul, Argentina by BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos.

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos.

We propose choices which guarantee the survival of the natural environment.

Mar Azul is a place well-known for us from time ago, so when we built our first work in 2004, we knew that we have to intervene a land that, despite of its worthy landscape, had never count with a legal support that protect this patrimony of those which built with a unique aim: get the most out of the earth. This land neither count with a code that, understanding the logic of this privileged space, regulate resolving the difference between this inappropriate constructions and the possibility of building without losing the properties of the site. In addition to this situation, the habit of building “picturesque houses in a place of fantasy” is taming slowly the forest, which is nowadays owner of a strong wild presence.
