Hotel B¨O in Chiapas, México by Muro Rojo Arquitectura

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

Article source: Muro Rojo Arquitectura

The B¨O Hotel suggests a new and fresh perspective of San Cristobal de las Casas. It is a proposal with an identity of its own, a revision of what hospitality should be, in which the design shapes the whole space integrating in a same gesture the concept of a house and a hotel within one single experience. B¨O is a place which inscribes the premises that have guided the work of Muro Rojo Arquitectura: How our own life gives meaning to a place and how design transforms our perception of the world?

Upper West Side Penthouse in New York by Turett Collaborative Architects

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

rticle source: Turett Collaborative Architects

Fifty four floors above Broadway, with the Statue of Liberty, the horizon over Long Island and the whole of Central Park in view, this Manhattan penthouse architecture project offered extraordinary potential. The owners had a vision for the space – clean design, a layout with the most panoramic views, and the celebration of a unique collection of Asian art. Architect Wayne Turett of Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) recognized that the new home had to be a reflection of the clients’ values and ideas and support their close-knit family’s style of living and entertaining. The client sought out TCA for Turett’s design sensibility and broad experience in high-end residential architecture; early meetings revealed a quick rapport and established the intensely collaborative design relationship that would prevail throughout the project.

C-51 HOUSE in Spain by ÁBATON

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

Article source: ÁBATON

This property is located in the midst of a forest of oak trees and therefore it wasn’t possible to free some of the land for landscaping. This matter conditioned the position of the house and how it linked to the exterior. Big windows like picture frames connected the interior to the exterior and viewing terraces were built on the upper floor. The staircase distributes the areas and exaggerates the different levels which characterize this plot of land.

JUMP 2 (NETWORKING) by Ayhan Güneri Architects

Article source: Ayhan Güneri Architects

Manufacture method with CNC cutting is also used in the production of stainless steel evoking its impetus while relocating the marks of this network, and strongly demonstrates itself on the walls, floor and texture of the ceiling.
The location is one of the successful illustrations of futurism with the impression that the furniture is appliquéd on the location by an injection moulding, technical end elements, the explicit presentation of ventilation and illumination systems, the camouflage of the exposed concrete by polishing equip slogans masking and furniture unit and free form lines created by operating the console remaining still without support on the floor and ceiling after being separated from the wall.

“Intertwine” is the key to design concept of Heirloom Taipei. The brand “Heirloom” is a new brand established by two young designers with family manufacturing background and east/west crossover cultural experience. The brand logo – “Interweaving H” explicitly demonstrates the multi-level mixture of Heirloom’s brand spirit. Therefore, the theme “Intertwine” was set to abstract Heirloom’s brand statement into three-dimensional store shopping experience.
