Carlo Pazolini Brompton in London, England by Giorgio Borruso Design

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Article source: Giorgio Borruso Design 

Carlo Pazolini, Brompton Rd is a 120 sqm space in Knightsbridge, London, housing men’s and women’s shoes and accessories. The design marks an evolution of the Carlo Pazolini worldwide store concept integrating specificities of site. Our design sought to recognize the memory of the adjacent 18th Century Brompton Arcade (now part of a retail store) by recreating a contemporary barrel vault ceiling as well as the illusion via a mirror wall that the space opens to the exterior at the back. An historical detail in the facade was used as a generative “seed” for the interior geometric language and led us to a pointed rather than semicircular barrel vault design. The memorialization of this neighboring arcade space led to a tunnel-like twisting of the interior in such a way that the floor, walls, and ceiling become wrapped into one another, creating a vortex of movement from front to back in which design elements flock like schools of fish moving through a turbulent fluid environment.

GeoEdge offices in Tel Aviv, Israel by Studio Samuelov

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Studio Samuelov

The Space

Our underlying design strategy was to disperse designated closed rooms throughout the floor, to create open work extensions which enjoy a measure of intimacy to reinforce the \”team\” spirit of specific outfits. The creation of surrounding large windows allows for ultimate utilization of natural daylight in the interior, sending a message of transparency and openness that enhances human interaction and strengthens GeoEdge’s corporate culture.

University of Winchester Winton Chapel in England by Design Engine Architects Ltd

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Design Engine Architects Ltd 

The project was to renovate and extend the University’s Victorian Chapel. Originally built in 1880, and then extended in 1927, the Chapel is used for a number of different events and purposes: services, group meetings, concerts and as a place of quiet contemplation.

In 2015 the University commissioned Design Engine Architects to oversee a complete restoration of its internal and external fabric. In addition, the University asked for an extension to the chapel, to include a small side chapel and a social and meeting space. The brief was to create a very special project, to sit as a small ‘jewel’ in the heart of the campus.

Nest House by BEARprogetti

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: BEARprogetti

You must constantly try to climb very high, if you want to be able to see very far. (Constantin Brâncuşi).

Like an eagle’s nest, Nest House takes advantage of its location to become a modern shelter on the top of the mountain. Even from the first inspection at the house, when there were no walls yet, it has been clear: nothing more needed besides what was seen out of the stately windows! That’s why all the spaces of the everyday life have been gathered together in a single, wide, open space. It would have been a huge mistake to foreclose the overall view of the landscape by splitting it up into small rooms trapped between walls … and so even the home life leads through the shape of the space, in a contemporary way to live it and to enjoy it … a few and simple objects define the functions at once: the kitchen with its island, the breakfast table, the table and the sofa. The large central fireplace is the common element of all these areas, it heats the rooms and the heart all day long.

La Manera Gastrobar in Valencia, Spain by Masquespacio

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Masquespacio 

Masquespacio presents its last hospitality design project for La Manera, a gastrobar in the ancient city of Valencia.

The project for La Manera consists in seeking to create a hospitality concept that could work by day and by night, adaptable to each moment and requirement, starting with a brunch and coffee during the morning, converting itself in a restaurant during the evening and ending up as a cocktail bar. The business concept concentrated on serving first class food and beverage made of natural ingredients and served by renown cocktail and coffee baristas, allows to create a design project that seeks to find the essence of natural materials. For that the existing building brick walls have been recovered, while a rusty finish has been added to the metallic elements on walls, lamps and the bar. For furniture some metallic elements with the same rusty finish have been mixed with concrete, adding a touch of warmth through brown soft leather and cushions made of different fabrics. Also be recognized in the space is the use of a lattice wall that aims to add a touch of Mediterranean feeling to the space, while the plants seek to connect even more to the natural concept from La Manera.
