Le Meridien Zhengzhou in China by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

In their design for Le Meridien hotel, Shanghai-based firm Neri&Hu envisions a new landmark for Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province. Henan, once the ancient political, economic and cultural center of China and home to many Emperors, today welcomes the international traveler. To showcase Henan’s history through its Arts (of Literature, Nature, Food, Theater, and Pattern) the architects conceived of the building as an “archive” of new and old artifacts that becomes a point of discovery for residents and travelers alike.

May/September : Eskenazi Hospital Parking Structure Art Facade in Indianapolis, IN by Urbana Studio

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Urbana Studio

This project began with an interest in challenging the typical notion of the parking structure as an unappreciated infrastructural typology by transforming the new Eskenazi Hospital parking structure into a binary, synthetic terrain. The effect of a field of 7,000 angled metal panels in conjunction with an articulated east/west color strategy creates a dynamic façade system that offers observers a unique visual experience depending on their vantage point and the pace at which they are moving through the site.

SoHo-Nagoya in Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

The relocation of the bookkeeping agency empied a local in Nakaku, Nagoya, which was renewed to become a place for living and working.

The living space was designed to occupy the minimum possible area. In fact, the bookshelf is the main piece of furniture of this renovation. The shelves evolve as the wall goes by and become a table and then a bed. The latter has two functions and it serves as a working space when it’s not used for sleeping. The curved layers make the whole more unified since only one object is used. Also, the curves create a harmonious space suitable for work and everyday life.

Article source: Al bordE architects

To come back. Inhabiting the farm where he grew up. This action determines the intervention. The client inherited a stable and chose this spot to be his last home.

There is no decoration when we talk about designing for animals. Cows do not have aesthetic whims.

OPSO in London W1U 5QL, UK by K-STUDIO

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Article source: K-STUDIO

OPSO is an all-day restaurant situated on the corner of Paddington Street and Nottingham Place in the London neighbourhood of Marylebone.

The brief was to create a design that would reflect the overall philosophy of the restaurant: Greek inspired, London made. For this concept to come across successfully the design, the menu and the branding had to come together coherently in one identity. We worked closely with the whole team to ensure that the design of the space is seen as a natural physical extension of the OPSO concept.
