The Stac Staircase – Nandos Restaurant in Harrogate, England by Demax Designs

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

Article source: Demax Designs

The most recent location of the now world famous Nandos Restaurant Chain has opened on Parliament Street in Harrogate. As part of the development, Demax Stairs were approached by STAC Architects to provide a staircase which was a little ‘different’. Whilst the available space was restricted with walls on three sides, the staircase still needed to be eye catching and become a statement piece for both customers and staff alike. 3D Renders were produced of various designs to give an idea how to best utilise the space.

Sagarana House in São Paulo, Brazil by Rocco Arquitetos

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: Rocco Arquitetos

This project is a renovation of a 1940’s house in the city of São Paulo. The client, a single woman, wanted a more free an fluid space, so almost all of the first floor internal walls were removed. In order to do so, without having to include any sort of beam (iron or concrete) under the slab, a suspended beam was installed on top of the second floor (under the roof). It was attached to a built in rod. So, part of the first floor structure was held by this hidden beam.

Puinhuis in Ghent, Belgium by FELT with 360 architecten

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: FELT

At the outskirts of the quaint Belgian city of Ghent we encounter an idiosyncratic renovation of a classic Flemish townhouse. The original building was wrapped within a new envelope, delineating the new volume. Carrying three facades, the building is situated on the end of a row of houses. This unique position provides the dwelling three different opportunities of sunlight, a 270° panoramic view and its very own secret garden.
