A High-End Running Store in Toronto, Canada by +tongtong

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Article source: +tongtong

Multi-disciplinary studio +tongtong recently completed a boutique retail space for Black Toe Running, a new high-end running store situated in downtown Toronto. Inspired equally by elite running culture and its urban locale, the space is nestled at the base of a condo building on King Street West – a major artery for condo development and a common route for urban runners. “It’s an interesting location,” Tong explains, “You might expect a café or a corner store, but Black Toe offers something that a lot of people who live and work in the neighbourhood actually engage with.”

Geometrics by Gemelli Design

The basic concept of this space is based on the wishes of an artist: “I need Colors, Colors and Colors”. She believes that the colors can improve her life. The Colors in this little room affect both body and soul. They produce the body’s natural relaxation, but also encourage the imagination through the geometric color forms.

This duo-block is the first of 4 housing complexes to be realised in this park-like area and is part of an urban development plan from the Lubbers’ bureau. The complex consists of 40 apartments (for rent or for sale) and 3 penthouses with underground parking and storerooms. In the context of the village, the considerable size is minimised by use of a terraced layout and a gradation of outer spaces.

OFFICES AND INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSE in MADRID, Spain by ISRAEL ALBA

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Article source: ISRAEL ALBA

A newly-created industrial zone in a peripheral area with no identity, references or language; major road links which cross, divide and model the contemporary landscape; a narrow, long plot between partition walls. Only the distant views on this landscape offer any interesting prospect of a relationship with the outside.
