KLANG & CO. asian food depot in Victoria, Australia by PNEU ARCHITECTS

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Article source: PNEU ARCHITECTS

The Klang & Co. conceptual design pivots around a desire to combine the tactility of the experience of dining with the contextual quality of Malaysia Klang Depot, which is the provenance of the restaurant culture. The design draws inspiration from Heston’s dish ‘Sound of the sea’, the dish composes the sound of sea wave audible through magnifying the echoes within the sea shell and the olfactory experience of smelling the sea water, Heston aims to heighten the senses associated with dining in order to enhance the innate quality of the ingredients. Our design deploys elements which invoke sensual responses and contextual association, the crane structure overhead adds visual potency to the dining environment, it reflects the industrial oil processing which is essential to Klang’s economic boom, the artificial identity of the crane is counterpoised by the suspended tables, translucent screen wall which signify sea bubble and the sea; and level of bright glimpse effect throughout the spatial arrangement, embodied the illumination atmosphere of the Klang depot’s night life . Deliberately designed elements permeate the restaurant to embellish the overall setting just as sea lives dwell in the sea. The restaurant layout celebrates the coastal industrial process of on and offloading cargo containers, a parallel can be drawn with the on and offloading of pre-packaged food, just like modern craft no longer limits itself to handmade goods and is continuously expanding its possibilities through machine processing, the craftsmanship of takeaway food can inherit authenticity and quality without compromising the effectiveness of its distribution.

Stan Aparadores in México by Local 10 Arquitectura

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Article source: Local 10 Arquitectura

The fact of showing so many products in such a small space, of course, is a matter to consider. This Stand was designed to be presented on one of the most important Construction Material Fair in Mexico. In this space, we can appreciate the way how materials were exposed on a versatile manner: multiplying, dividing, deconstructing.

Ant Farm House in Taipei, Taiwan by XRANGE

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Article source: XRANGE 

Xrange wraps a new layer of 80- 177cm wide by 7m high living spaces around an existing indigenous stone house to create an “extreme” new house of outrageous living proportion.  The newly added programs of pantry, bar, study, library, dog house and bathrooms are new “rooms” averaging about 4m2 in footprint, but with soaring 7m headroom.  The new house becomes a sequence of small narrow vertical spaces that interlock like the spaces within an ant colony.

In the Tilburg railway zone, the construction of the LocHal took off this week.
