HOME CARPET in Bergamo, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

An interesting operation of urban renewal in a brave tiny center among the early hills of Bergamo. The construction of a new primary school similar to a defensive inhabited urban border with a green heart, following a successful contest of ideas the Studio was proclaimed winner of, was joined in about a year from the education building’s completion, by the integral redefinition of the municipal private courtyards, hitherto treated as merely residual unused spaces.

Tent Pile in Miami by formlessfinder

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: formlessfinder 

Formlessfinder’s Tent Pile brings an intensely architectural intervention to Design Miami/, inventing a new building typology to provide shade, seating, cool air, and a space to play for the city’s public. The design practice, co-founded by Julian Rose and Garrett Ricciardi in 2010, approaches new projects with an interest in the specifics of geography — closely examining the spatial, social, and physical conditions of the location with which their structure will interact. They prioritize the use of available materials, committing to deploy them in ways that allow for reuse, an approach that produces what they refer to as “an architecture that can go from nothing to something and back again.

FLEUVE in Hamamatsu City, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates 

The client, who is a hair stylist a salon owner, requested us to design a house with a hair salon. It is an exclusive and luxurious hair salon where the salon owner himself provides all services, and the number of clients is limited to only two at the same time. Our design strategy is to minimize the size of the salon, to create a compact and intimate space where the hair stylist gives utmost attention and professional service to the customer. On the contrary, we provide the maximum floor area of the house. The glass-clad salon has a stylish and sharp atmosphere, but the sharpness is softened by greenery in the front yard and low and deep eaves above it.

Virgin Atlantic EWR Clubhouse in Newark, New Jersey by SLADE ARCHITECTURE

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: SLADE ARCHITECTURE

The Newark Clubhouse brings together NYC’s downtown flair and Virgin Atlantic’s warmth and individuality.

A constellation of sparkling pinpoint lights draws you into the sculpted entry passage. Punctuated by a sky lit receptionist at a specular desk, the entry sequence creates an extended decompression zone between the busy terminal and the relaxed luxury of the clubhouse; a dramatic immersion into the Virgin Atlantic experience.

5th Avenue Camper Store in New York by Nendo

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: Nendo

A new concept for Camper’s larger shops, following on our concept of ‘shoes that walk freely through the air’ developed for Camper’s small-scale shops in cities like Osaka, Paris, San Francisco and Moscow.  The design concept for the large shops had faced a consistent challenge: in a high-ceilinged space, to use the upper part of a space with high ceilings.
