A hotel is a hotel is a hotel just for tourists. Wrong! The new 25hours Hotel, located near Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, is by no means just a pretentious structure offering accommodation for a well-heeled foreign clientele. Since opening its doors in early 2013, this centrally located hotel has become a popular spot for all – especially for the locals, who appreciate the pizzeria, the Viennese “Schanigarten” with a special burger grill, and a cool rooftop café with a terrace.

A composition of frames to paint within them using the sun, the shadows of the trees, with the wet landscape that leaves the rain.

Even when it maintains and architectural proportion in the spaces according their use, the house can be perceived as a sculpture. The dimensions are hard to scale and guessing the program from outside because it’s decontextualized.

Lautner House in the Hollywood Hills by NEW THEME

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Article source: NEW THEME

The restoration of this mid-century John Lautner home included a reconsideration of living spaces and bedroom areas, which led to the fabrication of unique furniture pieces and installations that brought back the distinctiveness of the home’s original architecture. Interior spaces were reduced to an essential palette of white and wooden tones, emphasizing both light and transparency in a home that looks out upon Studio City and further out to the San Gabriel Mountains. The furniture built by NEW THEME seeks to express a contemporary perspective on classic ‘60s mod design in terms of the pieces built for the bedroom, living room and kitchen, dining areas.

Representing the second take on the originally proposed “Bent House”, the “Bent and Sliced House” incorporates the original concept of bending the home to accommodate the curving slope of the site. Furthermore, the idea of slicing and unfolding the home in a manner similar to Japanese Origami is introduced to create clerestories allowing opportunities for daylighting and natural ventilation.

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

The aim was to act respecting the current volumes of this old house, located close to the river in the village of Noutigos. Maintaining the stone facade, replacing the original windows in chestnut wood, we just only propose two new small and strategic openings in the south wall for their views and the natural light needed for specific locations. The new openings with iron frame and fixed glass contrast with the existing ones and which are treated with a chestnut wood.
