The first, their “primitive” state, reflected by the agglomeration of all vital functions for the operation of a building (infrastructure core).

Article source: Yuji Tanabe Architects

Armadillo is located in Kamakura, Japan. With the sea to one side and the other 3 surrounded by mountains, this town’s topography provides ideal protection from enemy. This feature led Kamakura to become the political centre of Japan in the 12th century. This site is located in a valley with a very narrow approach road ,so the carpenter was required to fabricate off-site at their workshop. The clients- a couple,her father,two dogs and a cat – bought the site with its old house four years ago. The existing house was built in the 1930s and enlarged 35years ago(this existing house do not satisfy the present earthquake-resistant standards).

A modern seamless bathroom with true WOW factor by Royston Wilson Design & Minosa

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Article source: Royston Wilson Design & Minosa

Amazing is the only real way to describe it, there are a lot of creative design features integrated to create one striking modern bathroom.
Help! …… The bathroom was cramped dark and was long passed its ‘use by’ date. Natural lighting is virtually nonexistent. A small inadequate window was the only light source. The space needs its inadequacies to be disguised and the layout carefully reconsidered.

The London Library in St James Square, London by Haworth Tompkins Ltd

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Article source: Haworth Tompkins Ltd

The London Library, founded by Thomas Carlyle in 1841, is the world’s largest independent lending library, with over 1,000,000 books and 8,000 members. Since its inception the Library has evolved into a complex amalgam of spaces that originate from a building sited on the north west corner of St James Square. The building has a discrete formal façade that provides a foil for a more aggregative interior. Over the years additional buildings have been annexed to house the ever-growing needs of the Library and its users, including a book stack built in 1922, and an extension to the north built in 1934; the Anstruther Wing housing rare books, was built at the rear of the 1920s book stack in 1995.

The municipality of Denkendorf lies in an idyllic position on the south-facing slopes of the Filder plateau. Ippolito Fleitz Group was commissioned to design a detached house for design-loving clients above the almost 900-year-old historic town centre with its famous monastery. It posed an interesting challenge for the studio to measure up to the clients’ aesthetic vision and desire for sustainable architecture, while at the same time complying with local building regulations.
