“CUBE 2” OFFICE TOWER in GUADALAJARA, MEXICO by Estudio Carme Pinós

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Estudio Carme Pinós

It can’t be denied that a tower has always a will of singularity and that its sculptural value is its most precious asset.

In this case, we don’t want to disconnect this sculptural value from its structural expression; we believe that any balancing act which its way of working is easily understood, responding to a carefully measured calculation, will reflect a tension that is, at the same time, harmony.

LC-140 in Colorado by Låda Cube

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Låda Cube

\”In 2013 Låda Cube set out to change how we use and think about our walls.

Fueled by our belief that traditional stick-built walls consume needless time, energy, and resources, we set out to develop a better technology. We couldn’t be more excited about the results!

We created a wall that is infinitely flexible and allows for rapid modifications of spaces, a wall that is transportable, a wall that is cheaper, and most importantly, a wall that is beautiful.

Office Building in Stuttgart, Germany by Blocher Blocher Partners

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Blocher Blocher Partners 

The rustic charm of exposed concrete – a double-layered concrete façade with cavity insulation – plays off against the ethereal transparency of broad windows. Elements of Sipo mahogany, strategically placed, give the façade depth; and the clean lines add a sense of order and dynamics.

Castle Garden Bazaar in Budapest, Hungary by Budapesti Muhely

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Budapesti Muhely

Budapest is often called the Queen of the Danube: the most characteristic feature of its bank-side scenery is the Buda Castle, which has been subject to major reconstruction works in recent times. An important stepping-stone in this process is the revival of the Castle Garden Bazaar (Várkert Bazár), wedged between the castle and the river: the stunning complex originally consisted of a Neo-Renaissance garden, the castle walls and 19th century buildings.

Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty boutique in Vancouver, Canada by Nathan Nardin

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Designed as a prototype in 2012, Shoppers Drug Mart’s new Beauty Boutique concept is now hitting its stride. For this project, Tuxedo rethought the notion of consumer experience in the pharmacy’s beauty department and revisited the existing model within a controlled environment, focusing on architectural design. Results exceeded expectations in Bay view as well as in the Toronto Eaton Center in Ontario. The project was also very successful in 2014 in the Western regions of Canada, notably Richmond, Vancouver, and Calgary. This new year will bring a new pace to the Beauty Boutique with more store implementations in Ottawa and Montreal.
