Stado Puro Tepa in Spain by James & Mau

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: Infiniski

The architectonical concept behind Estado Puro was inspired by Paco Roncero’s approach towards what is supposed to be “typically Spanish”. In his case “cuisine” is based on innovation and experiment while preserving their origins. We proposed to redefine the popular symbolic images of Spain by giving the twist to what’s traditional in order to achieve a chic and sophisticated yet folk ambient. Spanish classical comb “La Peineta” is the chosen to star such an objective.

Article source: HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

The owners of the snack bar within the building of Leroy Merlin are Cypriot Americans who worked in the restaurant business in the US before returning home to Cyprus. It was the flair of the traditional American dinner that we wanted to bring to this space in a more industrial way to match the industrial building hosting it.

MAPmx Studio inserts wooden object into residential apartment.

Mexico City practice, MAPmx has completed a residential interior in the northwest area of Mexico City. The strategy for the design of the 360 sqm apartment was to place a wooden piece into the main space. This element inside of the unit, divides the space into half creating separated areas for public and private program. Living, dining and study are concave, while leaving private areas convex. Service spaces such as kitchen, laundry and service bedroom are the only program located outside of the concave/ convex object, they join part of the perimeter of the apartment.

On a corner plot of the former Uhlan barracks in the Derendorf district of Dusseldorf stands the building ensemble Clara & Robert, by slapa oberholz pszczulny architekten, which links the two new buildings with the historical Saarhaus.

The Wilhelmine barracks, erected in 1890 and currently among the largest remaining barracks facilities in the Rhineland, were given new life through comprehensive renovation and expansion. The Clara & Robert office complex builds on the location’s architectural history, while the preservation of the expressive Saarhaus, which is being integrated into one of the new buildings, restores the link to the former barracks.
