Piet & Sarah – Copper Extension by Atelier Vens Vanbelle

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Atelier Vens Vanbelle

The property is situated at the back on the plot and originally consisted of a typical old farmhouse and an extension dating from the 90s, with a distinct architecture: a fully glazed facade, with a curved shape in plan, with a roof which consists of several parallel smaller roofs. The clash of these two building typologies is a strange thing. This house had become too small for the residents, so there was a need for an extra bedroom, bathroom and if feasible also an enclosed entrance hall.

Stratus Bar & Restaurant has won the Society of British and International Design’s (SBID) Award for Best Bar & Restaurant—the first international award for B+H Architects’ interiors group.

Located in the Toronto Athletic Club, in the heart of Toronto’s Financial District, Stratus was ready for a reinvention.

P house in São Paulo, Brazil by Studio MK27 | Marcio Kogan

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Studio MK27 | Marcio Kogan

The P house is a puzzle game. Rotating three volumes around one nucleus generated not only a particular spatial dynamic, but also different visual relations between empty and full, between the private and semiprivate areas and the view of the city.

CABANE de ZUCCa SHIBUYA PARCO in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

This is the renovation of CABANE de ZUCCa SHIBUYA PARCO. When commissioned for the project, my initial thought was “Unbelievable….Can’t be true!”, because the CABANE de ZUCCa flagship in Omotesando was the shop I admired most when I was a boy fresh out of high school, although I was not a fashion-conscious type. I didn’t dare to enter but only peeked inside from the street, and I was intrigued and fascinated by the simple yet sophisticated shop design composed of galvanized steel frames-such material was rarely used for a shop interior during that time. The impression of the shop space still remains vivid in my memory.

TAKAHASHI HIROKO OSHIAGE STUDIO in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

We renovated the old steel building, originally used as a factory / office, into a workspace for an artist to use for the next several decades. In order to improve the building performance, we applied fireproof coating and structural reinforcement. The construction of the original building was based on the value of “quantity over quality.” As a result, you can see various gaps and distortions all over the building after 40 years, which are made even more clearly visible by newly applied coating and finishes. We intend to transform these gaps and distortions into unique spaces where one encounters unexpected experiences.

Nanshan Cultural Centre in Shenzhen, China by ZOBOKI-DEMETER and Associates Architects

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: ZOBOKI-DEMETER and Associates Architects

A new performing arts facility inaugurated recently in Shenzhen, China, designed by architects Gabor Zoboki and Nora Demeter of ZOBOKI-DEMETER Architects has joined the ranks of the most unique cultural venues in China. The building houses a multi-functional concert hall holding 1400 seats, a children’s theatre of 350 seats, extensive public spaces, all embodied in a large complex of cultural and sports facilities in the heart of Nanshan District. The project is the result of a design process of several years, during which time the architects paid special attention to the local needs as defined by the Client, the Mayor of the District who wished to ensure that the building was planned and built from the perspective of the local community. Despite the general practice in large Asian metropolises, the concert hall works without amplification, promising to offer a new concert venue with world-class acoustics within its wooden-clad hall. Adjacent to the large concert hall a smaller theatre has been created, envisaged as a venue for smaller productions, most notably offering a facility for children, one of the most significant members of the growing cultural communities emerging in China. The complex is linked to a larger sports facility, hosting an array of athletic and sports facilities for the residents and students of Nanshan.
