Rooftops – Twin House H in Bozen, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

The gabled roof, the rooftop and the roofing of the windows were the central topics of the design. the natural and architectural surroundings were the inspiration for the rooftop. the mountain tops – the backdrop of the house – and the traditional farmsteads that characterize the area are abstractly cited and interpreted in a new way in the architecture. a parallel floor plan allowed for two houses under one roof. the two different apartments, planned for two sisters, are designed to let nature and the surroundings in. all of the windows were placed according to the views they offer, and the gardens are mirrored in the loggia on the ground floor as well as on the rooftop terrace, nestled between the rooftops. any open spaces are protected from the strong winds distinctive for this area. the loggias are located deep in the buildings, and the rooftop terrace is protected by an elongated piece of façade. the building interacts with its surroundings; the old stone wall is incorporated in the design. the two materials – cinderblock and brownish-black wooden slats – interact, illustrating the duality found on the inside.

Hunter Bar in Oslo, Norway by Snøhetta

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: Snøhetta

Snøhetta has created a holistic interior design and visual identity for the restaurant Hunter Bar, located at the newly built international terminal at Oslo Airport. Hunter Bar is conceived as a hunting lodge where guests can seek shelter and relax leaning back onto the wall of the centrally placed cabin. The restaurant has a rustic and robust expression, drawing inspiration from buildings in weather-torn locations. With the use of roughly cut wooden elements, raw steel, and leather in natural tones, the design evokes an atmosphere rich with associations to nature and hunting traditions.

Norton Restaurant in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos

“The ceiling used to be decorative, a symbolic plane, a place invested with intense iconography. (…) Now, it has become an entire factory of equipment that enables us to exist, a space so deep that it begins to compete with the architecture. It is a domain over which architects have lost all control, a zone surrendered to other professions.” Rem Koolhaas, Venice Biennial. This restaurant is located on the rooftop of one of the newest unit of an international chain hotel located in the centre of Brasília. This is a type of space that is often impersonal, where standardized characteristics are kept throughout its units all over the world. In this project, we were interested in exploring the tension between characteristics that could be understood both as undefined and specific in a hotel building. Therefore, the project aimed to stress the differences between its two main surfaces: the floor and the ceiling. The floor is neutral and impersonal. The ceiling has a specific design with a clear iconographic reference.
