The Ravelijn Bridge in Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands by RO&AD Architecten

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Article source: RO&AD Architecten

Short History

The Ravelijn “Op den Zoom” is a fortress-island of the city of Bergen op Zoom in The Netherlands which is made in the beginning of the 18th century by Menno van Coehoorn, a famous fortress builder. This is the only “ravelijn” of him still present. The fortress was originally only accessible by boat , so supplies and soldiers had to be rowed the 80 meters to the fortress. The original entrance is still present just above the waterline At the end of the 19th century the fortress lost its defensive function. In 1930 a raised wooden bridge was added. Nowadays the island-fortress is mainly used for small public and private events.

GARDENS OF THE DEADLY SINS in Chaumont-sur-Loire, France by NAS Architecture

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Article source: NAS Architecture

Based on the thematic “gardens of the deadly sins”, Bloom creates an abstract and fairy space between profusion and reserve. Exploiting contrasts of colors and volumes, a large slender table comes to encircle the object of all the desires, the garden. This furniture invites the passers to contemplate the vegetable feast all while preventing the access there, manufacturing a mixture of amazement and desire. To support this duality, Bloom exploits the disparities.

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Article source: Architecture Discipline

Designed as a first in a series of multi-designer pret stores, where the collections are themed and curated, Neel Sutra- the India Fashion store is emblematic of Indian Design ethos.

Sited at The New Oberoi Hotel in the suburban abode of NCR- Gurgaon, the hotel spawns a high-end luxury international experience. The brief was to create a unique and distinct design ambience that would be conspicuous within the context of other established global hi-design brands at the hotel and elsewhere in the vicinity.The customized and curated store, emblematic of Indian Fashion is conceived within this international collective construct as a step ahead of conventional high street retail to showcase a motley bunch of Indian fashion designers.Contemporary design in India usually expresses the complexity in Indian Design discourse with kitsch. The India Fashion Store is a cognizant attempt to stay away from Indian Kitsch, and instead craft a sacred space.
