B-one in Bangalore, India by Cadence Architects

 
December 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadence Architects

The residence sits in an urban fabric where the immediate context is a busy street and a lack of foliage for the house to respond to. The house is designed on a plot measuring 45’x90’, located in a typical Indian neighbourhood flanking the busy street. The dense residential fabric of the neighbourhood, proximity of the neighbours and the busy street in front prompted the conception of an introverted building. Diagrammatically, the program of the house is laid out in the form an ‘H-shaped plan’ that wraps around a courtyard such that each arm of the ‘H’ flanks the courtyard. The open to sky courtyard, a highly sustainable element, not only becomes the point of interest and activity within the house, but also represents the ‘outside’ within the introverted house. The pergolas help shade the double height space and cut the glare, while the green wall helps in reducing the heat. The court is an oasis not just for light but for fresh air as well, where hot air escapes and fresh air comes through. Acting as a light well, the court enables the user to have a macro oasis within the house. The interiority of the house is designed to revolve around the experience of the garden, similar to that of a conventional courtyard/thotti house.

Mdk Headquarters in Alicante, Spain by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

 
December 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

The project consists in the construction of the headquarters for Mondraker, a company dedicated to the manufacture of competition mountain bikes. Located in an industrial park and surrounded by orthogonal edification, the building seeks to break away from the adjacent geometry and encloses itself, with a circular plan hollowed out by a central courtyard. Two vaults pierce the geometry allowing the access to the building, and creating a sort of central atrium which can be used, due to its form, to generate events and exhibitions. This geometry separates the building from its surrounding, reinforcing the corporative identity of the company and improving the quality of the open space in the plot.

Hanaya in Lisbon, Portugal by Yaroslav Galant

 
December 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Yaroslav Galant

Yaroslav Galant innovative design studio finished work on an interior of Japanese cuisine restaurant – Hanaya, located in Lisbon. The eclectic concept of the place – a cozy drawing room of the European who is deep in Japan – was inspired by travel of authors across Portugal and their old interest in Japanese culture. Almost imperceptible interlacings of quotes from traditional Portuguese esthetics and the principles of Japanese philosophy connect history, art, the nature and modern everyday life. So, for example, ornaments of stone lace from the Monserat palace located in Sintra became a prototype of stamped wall of the hall. The metal facade of a bar counter repeats drawing of a typical Portuguese tile and causes associations with raw fish – a basis of Japanese cuisine. And shades of conventional scales – a tribute to one of symbols of Portugal – a blue sardine. Simplicity, “dampness”, incompleteness and understatement, common to Japanese esthetics, break and animate form of a drawing room by the wine bar from metal fittings, flower cache-pots from the rusted industrial details, unexpected wooden fragment of an ancient Portuguese mill. Pictures of the Portuguese artist Victor Teixseira living on Madeira island became bright visual accent of the atmosphere. Being scenery for refined Japanese cuisine from one of the best sushi teams of Europe, this interior of implications communicates with the guest more than in two languages.
