The neighborhood is situated on the outskirts of downtown and close to the highway making Mar Mikael easily accessible.

BeanBar Café in Qingdao, China by Latitude Studio

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Latitude Studio

Cafés, tearooms, dry cleaners, fast food restaurants and other urban spaces are taking on roles that historically belonged to our homes, from our living and dining rooms to our kitchens, bathrooms, and storage spaces. Nowadays, a café is a cozy place for friendship in the big city. It provides a space to share, and sell, a moment to complete our day. In this way, cafés are part of the modern city but also represent what they are replacing: our own home.

Mirrors in Gifu, Japan by Hisanori Ban Kazumoto Terashima / bandesign

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Hisanori Ban Kazumoto Terashima / bandesign

A row of cherry trees is planted at an embankment at its basin, and many people visit this location during the cherry-blossom viewing season. There is Mirrors along the avenue.

Taking advantage of this location, we intentionally made repeated refractions of the tree. In order to amplify the cherry two mirror walls set up angle position and making a cherry forest on a corner of the town. Overlapping the cherries and reflecting with a warp, the people are invited by it to the forest. In addition, in the café the people could see the cherries and the reflecting cherries at the same time and feel season changing closely.

EauBERGE PARIS CAPSULE HOTEL in France by MenoMenoPiu Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.

Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

Compact Karst House in Vrhovlje, Slovenija by dekleva gregorič arhitekti

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: dekleva gregorič arhitekti

The region of Karst was once covered with Oak trees that Venetians have extensively used for building up the City on water. They have left the wind to peel off earth revealing limestone grounds. In this landscape the tradition of small, compact, stony and almost windowless houses developed and remained until today.
