VEGAMAR SELECCIÓN WINE SHOP in Valencia, Spain by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Vegamar Selección Wine Shop, located on the main shopping street of town, is a space for wine tasting and sales.

The project aims to transmit the quality of the exposed products, as well as to maximize the feeling of amplitude inside the shop.

Dark, glossy panels are chosen for vertical surfaces. Due to their tone and reflections, they blur the spatial limits of the establishment, making it seem bigger than what it really is. The colour of this material also refers to the colour of the displayed wines. These vertical surfaces lodge storage space and allow for a regularization of the available geometry.

It settles down on the area of 260 sq.m., from them 130 sq.m – the residential zone, the second part – a recreation area. The house is intended for a young family which likes to have a rest outdoors. As well as in all my projects, here I follow style minimalism with emphasis on texture of materials.

The New Suresnes Museum in France by Encore Heureux and AAVP

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: Metropolis Communication

A coloured concrete monolith extends the existing station to host the MUS, the town’s museum of urban and social history. The extension forms the foundation for the station, with its smooth, slightly tilted façade unfolding and running up to the surrounding retaining walls. The station has been preserved in its original form, and the new foundation creates a space for a raised terrace which can be used for openings, educational events or outdoor exhibitions.

Hotel Kapok Shenzhen Bay in China by Goettsch Partners

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: Goettsch Partners 

Located adjacent to the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center athletic complex, the new Hotel Kapok, designed by Goettsch Partners (GP), is a 19-story boutique hotel with 242 rooms. The design attempts to provide the guest with a unique spatial quality that eliminates the cloistered and disorienting nature of typical hotel corridors. In response, a pinwheel plan was developed, allowing for corridors that end in vision glass with a punctuation of light and views.

Frederiksberg Halls in Danmark by AG5

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: AG5 

AG5 in collaboration with Consulting engineers Jens Peter Madsen have designed a new 1.060m ² extension to Frederiksberg sports hall. The sports facilities are the home to the well-known handball and football clubs such as FIF, BK Ydun and FA2000.

The project is an extension to the existing sports complex and is conceived as the head of the snake in the story about the Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) where the narrator explains that, as a young boy, he once drew a picture of a boa constrictor with an elephant digesting in its stomach; however, every adult who saw the picture would mistakenly interpret it as a drawing of a hat. Whenever the narrator would try to correct this confusion, he was ultimately advised to set aside drawing and take up a more practical or mature hobby.
