Muelle Kay Restaurant in Yucatán, México by Workshop

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Article source: Workshop 

Muelle Kay is a new seafood restaurant, located in the city of Merida, Yucatan in southeastern Mexico.  The word Muelle means dock or pier in Spanish and Kay comes from the Mayan word fish. The goal of this project was to create a space that felt like a homey restaurant along the pier, so we decide to use materials that are commonly seen and accessible in local ports such as crates for exhibiting fish, wooden planks , ropes and sailcloth among others in a re interpretative way, achieving a modern yet casual style.

The two-story brick building on the corner of West Broadway and N. Moore Street lies at the edge of the TriBeCa West Historic District. The 1870s-era structure itself was singled out for preservation on account of its distinctive corbelled brick work, prominent location, unusual acute plan, low massing, and multitude of French- and double-hung windows.

Christmas Lights in Madrilian Streets, Spain By Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Article source: Teresa Sapey

Every single year, Madrid council asks some of the most important designers, architects or courtiers to make designs for Madrid’s streets. Teresa Sapey was asked to conceive Serrano Street’s Christmas lighting.

Placed in one of the most luxurious neighbourhoods in Madrid, Serrano Street is well known for the high fashion designer’s shops. It seemed to be a very difficult task, but Teresa thought this was a very good chance to lighten up the street using very colourful and geometric designs. Her aim was to the grey and cold Serrano into a warm place, filled with colour.

Kurosaki Tully’s Coffee, a chain shop, provides some new challenges to increase the number of shops.

Since this shop is directly connected to the local city station, there are various customers. With this situation, we proposed a special suggestion. That was, to create an identity in total and to purposely design separate customers’ seats.

Article source: Architecten|en|en

On a former sports field within the ring road of the Dutch town of Groningen, a new residential district is being realised by creating a ‘scenery landscape’. This plan achieves the coherence and transition between the ‘garden vilage’ De Oude Hoogte and the industrial area on the northern side of the ring road. The division into sequential living atmospheres provides a varied range of housing typologies.
