Redeveloper Apartment in Ottawa, Ontario by Kariouk Associates

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Article source: Kariouk Associates

Re-developer Condominium

This project called for the rethinking of an 850 square-foot apartment on the seventeenth floor of a new condominium building in the city’s downtown core.  The slogan employed by the developer for marketing this building championed the apartments as “…statements of modern, urban living.”  This cliché of developers has come to describe small apartments that feature the very same suburban spatial logic of segregated spaces.

The setting

On San Francisco Bay, on the eastern side of Tiburon peninsula, at the end of a short road running steeply downhill amidst the vegetation, a narrow triangular valley slopes gently down to a little beach.

The house is located in the center of this valley and opens directly onto the beach, which in the course of the day widens and contracts with the rising and falling of the tide.

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: Future Cities Lab

TRILUX is an experimental pavilion constructed out of three vertical wooden lattice structures. It creates an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and inviting the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside it. TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.

MPD Office in Meat Packing District, New York City by StudioLAB, LLC

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Article source: StudioLAB, LLC

The 3,000 square-foot space was designed for a boutique creative agency located in the Meat Packing District of NYC. Existing cubicle walls that cut up the space and sheltered natural light were demolished to give way to an open plan with a loft like feel. Simple, frameless glass volume enclosures were used for staff offices to allow daylight to permeate through the space along with the white washed floor to maximize brightness. Custom stainless steel framed desks were built along with a custom designed high gloss lacquered reception desk. The clean-lined forms and modern material palette reinforce the company’s minimalist aesthetic approach.
