Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: Theeae

Design Concept

The advanced technology of reading materials by computer, Kindle and even cell‐phone devices helps people easily access to information even way much more than what library could provide in last decades. Therefore, the main function of library seems to have a change in order to accommodate the current trend of getting and providing information.

ANT – Monochrome Collage in Paris, France by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

Situated beneath the roof of a 19th century building, Antoine’s apartment is a specimen from a bygone era. The supporting structure has shifted, and the walls are no longer perpendicular to the floor, which, in turn, is uneven and suffers multiple irregularities.

WY-TO’s proposal focuses on leveraging the view and natural light that enters from the north. The objective is to create a different space for each usage whilst at the same time maintaining visual continuity. To do so, storage space and bathrooms are re-organised behind a full-height technical fat wall stretching from one end of the flat to the other, from the entrance to the most
intimate part. This additional technical thickness is covered with full-height vertical aluminium structure according to a cutting-edge graphic layout. The aluminium work integrates seamlessly with the architecture of the flat, adding a vertical rhythm.

MEZ – TRANSVERING TIME in Singapore by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

The client lives in a housing initiative that incorporates both the contemporary and the historical, combining ubiquitous high-rise living with a façade of traditional houses in one of Singapore’s protected conservation neighbourhoods. Located on the highest floor of the conserved shophouses, the studio is small but offers the possibility of expanding vertically into the attic. An elevated platform is introduced to not only access the available space, but also create a double-heighted volume that lends a more generous feel to the apartment and provide an expanse upon which the client, an art enthusiast, can showcase her collections.
