Unilux Group lighting showroom in LEBANON by SOMA Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: SOMA Architects

With 20 meters of frontage but only 4 meters of depth, the existing ground floor space provided a unique opportunity for a commercial street front fit for a lighting showroom. The client, Unilux Group – the largest supplier of high end light fixtures in Lebanon, requested a unique space in which to exhibit the products sold by the company. Due to the shallow depth of the existing main space, a conscious decision was made to envision the space as larger than its confines of the walls in order to visually appear larger as well as draw pedestrians into the store.

Nagasawa Dental Clinic in Tokyo, Japan by Kunihiko Matsuba (TYRANT Co.,Ltd.)

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: Kunihiko Matsuba (TYRANT Co.,Ltd.)

The buildings look like a set of building blocks piled up to the brink of collapsing, but they do not fall down even though it seems like they could at any moment.

They consist of a dental clinic and a house, which were built in a residential area in a suburb of Hachioji—a city located in the western part of Tokyo. The building site was previously a field, and we planned to construct a dental clinic,a house, a garage for two cars, and a parking lot for seven patients’ cars at the site, which was spacious enough to accommodate all these structures and provide a comfortable working and living environment.

House Mat is a new double storey residence designed by Rudolph van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects.

The 1884 m² house is located against a hill in Maseru, Lesotho, on a stand of 4991m².

The concept of a contemporary white building that follows a gentle curve came about after the original complicated design was simplified and reduced into a white curve mirroring the curve of the hill base.

Tree House in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Balanced shade, dappled sunlight, and tree canopy views are the basis of the 518 Sacramento Drive house design.  The entry is on center with the lot’s primary Live Oak tree, and each interior space has a unique relationship to this central element.

Composed of crisply-detailed, considered materials, surfaces and finishes, the home is a balance of sophistication and restraint. The two-story massing is designed to allow for a bold yet humble street presence, while each single-story wing extends through the site, forming intimate outdoor and indoor spaces.
