FAMILY BENCH by Valentin Garal

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Article source: Valentin Garal 

family bench is a collaboration by the spanish designer Valentin Garal for Le Porc-Shop, a mexican hand-crafted furniture workshop. Family Bench is an object conceived for the “non places” often forgotten and lacking of character. It is made of solid willow wood, with an outstanding crafted work on the cage. Its construction moves to a concept of excellence for the social and sentimental scope. Pedagogical in its design, functions as a bank of family ties. It requires a tender care by all members that surround the Family Bench. With a touch of irony, is a reflective piece destined to become a point of meeting, discussion and preservation of social relations.

Merchant Square footbridge in Grand Union Canal, England by Knight Architects

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Article source: Knight Architects

Conceived by bridge specialists Knight Architects and structural engineers AKT II following a limited design competition in 2012, the 3m wide cantilevered Merchant Square footbridge spans 20m across the Grand Union Canal and is raised using hydraulic jacks with an action similar to that of a traditional Japanese hand fan. This creates a kinetic sculpture whose silhouette is both legible and extraordinary and which is well suited to the position on Sunset Terrace next to the canal.

Article source: Bumper Investments

“PRIVATE HOUSE” is a large family home situated in Beauvallon, in the Gulf of St. Tropez on the French Cote d’Azur. Stylistically the modern concrete, glass and steel construction is the first of its kind in the area, marking a new generation of design in a region rich with tradition. Bumper Investments, the developers, envisioned an aesthetic and sensorial link between the edifice and the surrounding nature and garden. Corresponding to the natural topographical setting, the maximum height of the elevation reaches just above the treetops, impressing on the inhabitant ideals of being at one with the surrounding wildlife.

River Safari by DP ARCHITECTS

While a modern metropolis such as Singapore offers many amenities and conveniences, there are times when people seek respite from urban life and a chance to interact with nature. River Safari is the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia, hosting Southeast Asia’s largest panda exhibit and the world’s largest freshwater aquarium. It is not just a collection of wildlife exhibits, butblends the animal habitats into a natural setting – immersing guests and animals in the same landscape. It allows people to observehow animals live in the wild and to establish an open, authentic connection with the animals, yet offering the same safety benefits of a more traditional enclosure.

Located on the edge of the coastal escarpment south of Sydney, the site enjoys beautiful views of rolling green hills and a distant panorama to the sea. The clients brief sought a new country residence with private guest accommodation and large entertaining areas. A microclimate of heavy rains, strong winds and western sun had to be addressed, coupled with the need for the new works to sit comfortably within the established character of a complex of existing buildings.
