CP House in Barcelona, Spain by Alventosa Morell Arquitectes

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Article source: Alventosa Morell Arquitectes

This building and warehouse have been designed and located on a plot of land  between two blocks of flats, which represent difficulties to get natural light, and also, a comfortable relationship with the surroundings. At first thought, the site was not suitably located. It is to say, the outdoor settings aren’t a welcoming zone, for a family house. Another negative outstanding point is the fact that this place is extremely noisy. It gets the maximum of decibels according to regulations.

Fine Tuning Harman Int’l’s Flagship Audiophile Listening Room in New York

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Article source: Walters-Storyk Design Group

NEW YORK:  “These speakers sound OK, but that’s not good enough. Something isn’t right with this room.”*  In May 2014, Harman International acquired an expansive space at 527 Madison Avenue at 54th Street for its flagship experience center. Designed to showcase their full range of consumer and audiophile equipment, the street level would be devoted to Harman’s AKG®, Harman Kardon®, JBL®, and other respected brands. The lower level would feature a screening room and, behind a discrete sliding door, a private listening room outfitted with Harman’s premium Mark Levinson® amplifiers, and award-winning Revel Salon2 Speakers, a CD/SACD Disc player, and a turntable for vinyl aficionados.  After six months of construction, the showroom and its listening room were ready for a trial run. But, despite the meticulous planning and design, it was clear to the true audiophiles in the room that something was amiss.

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Article source: Contain[it] and SuperLimão Studio

Contain[it] developed together with Alphaville, a sales booth that intends to innovate and break with the use of temporary structures for the sale of real estate projects in the Brazilian market. What is seen in the market today are structures that are very attractive for the public, or structures that are significantly reusable. The idea of the project was to address both aims.

Alexandria House by Pivot Studio

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Article source: Pivot Studio

The development replaces the existing rear wing of the house with a new structure which simulates the form and mass of the previous construction. Whilst the pre-existing form and mass are retained and taken as cues for the new structure, the materiality is reinterpreted as a skin which wraps and contains the new space. The skin rejects the use of a ‘corner’ which defines the demarcation between wall and ceiling, here, both become the one treatment, the one surface, the one space. The familiar material of corrugated iron is chosen as the appropriate treatment for the skin, responding to the industrial context the house shares and as a reference to the previous structure on the site.
