Three-in-one sports center in Visp, Switzerland by savioz fabrizzi architectes

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Article source: savioz fabrizzi architectes  

The valais canton and the visp vocational college had a sports centre constructed at one end of the existing college complex.

The building is a single, compact structure consisting of the sports halls part, which is orthogonal, and the service part, which is lower and whose shape is adapted to the outline of the existing buildings. thus, the design adds a new dynamic to the dialogue between the building and its surroundings; empty spaces become paths, public areas, entrances. the building’s footprint maximises the space available for outdoor sports fields.

PAKTA RESTAURANT in Barcelona, Spain by El Equipo Creativo

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Article source: El Equipo Creativo

In the Quechua language of Peru Pakta means “union”; in this case the union of two cultures and their respective cuisines . The interior design created by El Equipo Creativo emerges from this same idea, considering that Japanese cuisine is the basis of the nikkei gastronomy but wrapped in Peruvian tastes, colours, traditions and ingredients.  With this in mind, the basic elements of the restaurant such as the bars, the kitchen and the furniture are designed with a clear reference to the architecture of the traditional Japanese taverns.

Apartment Design in Vardanants, Armenia by ITHAKA – Architecture and design

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Article source: ITHAKA – Architecture and design

The apartment was designed for a young family with a small child.

The original design of the apartment had a number of serious imperfections. The apartment had a lot of dark rooms and unused spaces. While creating the interior architecture these defects have been possibly removed. As a result the dark hall area became smaller, lost spaces have been reduced.
