VDAB Office Building in Sint Niklaas, Belgium by BOB361 Architects

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

Article source: BOB361 Architects

Considering the urban anchoring of the site, the angles of this building block are the regulating elements. The VDAB-project anchors itself with the existing context on the corner of the Noordlaan-Drie Koningenstraat, which is in direct relation with various public functions (post, ministry of finances), located near the main road. It is an intuitive meeting point located on a wide footpath. The second angle is the location for a possible extension and is at present, included in the project’s garden.

The main wall of “Breath Box” is reflective, facing the horizon. It does not only recreate the image of the sea, it transforms by its own attributes. The wind comes lift the many reflective modules, providing a duality between visual experience and reflection ripple.

Article source: Festival des Architectures Vives

“It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve that I find in the body of the beloved woman.”

Design and fashion concept store in Berlin, Germany by KONTENT

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

Article source: KONTENT

NO WÓDKA is a concept store that shows a fine selection of todays’ lively Polish art and design in Berlin.

The main concept created by KONTENT brings a new approach to product display that thinks outside the norm of standard wall mounted shelves. Designers wanted shop to be a paraphrase of a wardrobe in which you enter. The result is a large, self-supporting structure made of scaffold beams and as the shop name NO WÓDKA suggests it breaks through the typical stereotypes with the interior design following this rule.
