Casa Decor 2015 – KAZUO Suite in Madrid, Spain by Egue y Seta

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Egue y Seta 

KAZUO Suite

If dreaming is like traveling, why do we have to come back home at dusk? With their latest promotional space for 2015´s edition of Casa Décor, Kazuo Suite, the Spanish interior architecture studio Egue y Seta want to give us the chance to keep on traveling after sleep, to offer the opportunity of going to bed in the middle of garden blossoming under dark inked oriental strokes, and a place to commence each and every day amidst vegetal reflections of a somehow “Shinto” calling. This is a space that poses a fluid, cyclic and infinite circulation path, around premises that host our most private moments; a room where intimacy is shared with nature, where the outdoors invades the very heart of the built environment and a realm where light travels unceasingly through transparencies and mirrors up until the moment, when we decide to, once again, close our eyes for the night.

Public park by DRAFTARCH

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: DRAFTARCH

Parco di Piantonia overlooks the valley of the Sporzana stream. Friedrich’s “Wanderer” observes the landscape in a sea of fog. The form of the design uses the relationship between the landscape and the existing trees: the path provides structure and divides up the green space, as far up as the viewpoint. A service block indicates the entrance announcing the route, while the rest areas lie alongside the path, complementing it. A route, a place to socialise, for children to play…
