1930s Queenslander in Brisbane, Australia by Dion Seminara Architecture

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Article source: Dion Seminara Architecture

Queenslanders are homes built up off the ground which are often falsely thought to be naturally cool in summer. They are actually designed to keep the area under the home cool. The homes themselves aren’t well insulated and can get quite hot.

Petit Lapin Bakery in Westmount, Canada by Architecture Open Form

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Recipient of the Surface Award attributed by the 2015 Grands Prix du Design and a comity made up of 14 architects, designers, directors, teachers and presidents of associations, the Pâtisserie Petit Lapin is the first pastry shop in Montreal to offer delicious treats that are gluten-free, lactose-free and without the ten priority food allergens.

Situated on Victoria Avenue in Westmount, it occupies a small commercial space of ​​342 square feet in a basement with a six-foot-wide hall connecting it to its street-level entrance. The challenge was to peak the curiosity of passers-by in order to lure them inside. To do this, Architecture Open Form, led by architect Maxime Moreau, created a series of textured surfaces, with a modular system of “softwalls” with integrated LED lights, to present the pastries, highlight the double-height entrance hall and give the space an illusion of grandeur. The “softwalls” unfold in a continuous gesture on the walls and various ceilings, leading customers in the transition between the retail entry and the downstairs counter.
