New headquarters of EY in Milan, Italy by DEGW Italia

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: DEGW Italia 

EY is opening its new headquarters right in the heart of the old city centre of Milan, the first workplace of the future in Italy: a totally green, LEED-certified building with revolutionised spaces, cutting-edge technology and an innovative vision of how to work, designed by DEGW.

The new headquarters of EY, located right in the heart of old Milan city centre, has opened its doors as a totally green, renovated organism featuring revolutionised spaces, cutting-edge technology and an innovative vision of work. The project, by DEGW, Lombardini22 brand, has done so by redeveloping an entire block, “welding together” totally different structures built at different periods in time that seemed to be unsuitable for either the latest work methods or an innovative company like EY. The real challenge the project faced was to incorporate all the most highly developed modern-day work processes within the constraints imposed by history, turning every restriction into a fresh opportunity to enhance the space itself.

Wadi penthouse in Beirut, Lebanon by platau | platform for architecture and urbanism

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: platau | platform for architecture and urbanism

The project is an interior refurbishment of a two floors penthouse for a family of four, located in Wadi Abu Jamil in Beirut Central District. The original arrangement of the penthouse presented a fragmented circulation between its two floors with poor spatial interaction, and a narrow main foyer.

The most significant spatial intervention was the introduction of a double height space at the center of the house, reorganizing around it the once fragmented realms of living areas, work areas, storage and bedrooms.

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: PASQUINEL Studio

This restaurant it’s located in a new commercial center: Miyana, on Mexico City’s neighborhood, Polanco.

The main idea for the design was to create a relaxed atmosphere through warm materials and different spatial planes that generate a dynamic perception of the place. The restaurant is set on one level, but there is a mezzanine for services and a private area. It is integrated by a terrace on the commercial track, a non-smoking lounge with its terrace, and a terrace for smokers.

Pearl Marzouq Complex in Ras, Kuwait by PAD10 Architects

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: PAD10 Architects

Of resemblance to the social housing typology, Pearl-Marzouq complex, ‘Lou’lou’at Al-Marzouq’, embodied the complete opposite; a private housing for the affluent. Built in the early 70’s on al-Ras, a peninsula-like landform; with remoteness from the city center, al-Deira, yet at a distance close enough to be gazed at. With its red roof tiles and warm sandstone walls, the building infused a Mediterranean feel to the Arabian Gulf. For white collar expats partaking in the spur of Kuwait’s economy, it was home away from home. Similarly, it was convincing for well-to-do locals to substitute the privacy of their single residences, seeking a new ‘urbanized’ experience, by claiming their prime villa-like duplexes and penthouses with an elevated vantage point back to the city and its sea. The excitement inherent to this dense typology, was further amplified by subverting the building law to equate the number of floors to skip-stop elevator corridors. Connecting midway to duplex apartments, the area (sqm) was almost doubled, as the building height from its surrounding.
