Hasshoden-Charnel House in Saitama, Japan by Love Architecture Inc.

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

Article source: Love Architecture Inc.

Opens the temple to community as a place to interact with “life”

In recent years, the decay of local communities due to urbanization has changed the Japanese sense of religion including ancestor worship, weakening the “Jidan” (system where commoners had to register with a temple to prove their Buddhist faith) which is the financial basis of many temples in Japan. Charnel house, which is a new style of grave that appeared as though it responded to the trend of the contemporary times, is different from the graveyard passed down from generation to generation and does not follow the traditional Jidan system.

Article source: B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio 

Renovation of tenements in Nanluoguxiang. The small house is the home of three generations, five people. We don’t want the intimate feeling in this family disappear, and to create individual space for every member at the same time. Therefore, the basic concept is to provide each person a relative private living space, but to keep the opportunity of interpersonal communicating in details.

Condo Hôtel de Ville in Québec, Canada by ACDF Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: ACDF Architecture

The Hôtel-de-Ville Residence is a multifamily residential project in the Plateau Mont-Royal district of Montreal. This historic workers neighbourhood offers a variety of architectural richness, including the extensive use of traditional red clay brick. The project consolidates a block corner with an existing twostorey building through the construction of a new three-storey building that cantilevers over the existing volume. The project is distinguished by creating unity and cohesion between a patrimonial building and contemporary architecture, through a simple stripped-down language. For ACDF Architecture, the Hôtelde- Ville Residence was an opportunity to reflect on the expression of contemporary urban architecture.

Editions MP in Mexico City by LANZA Atelier

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: LANZA Atelier

Editions MP is a project for the offices of a new publisher of art books.

We designed and produced all the furniture. The proposal was to organize all the elements following an unbroken line around the entire perimeter of the space, closing on itself. From the marble sliding door, through the shelves, tables, hanging library and the platform on which the couch rests, all the intervention stood on this virtual line, freeing the central space to make it as flexible as possible.

Primo Cafe Bar Tübingen in Germany by DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

The Primo Cafe Bar stands for high-quality coffee, an Italian lifestyle and a sustainable mind-set. In the spirit of this brand philosophy, an authentic interior design concept with natural materials and dedication to detail was created. The café was realized at the Zinser fashion store in Tübingen. Located in the pedestrian zone, it not only attracts people from the outside but also creates value for the store’s retail customers. The continuous glass façade reveals a warm atmosphere to passers-by which – in a symbiosis of light and material – makes them want to enjoy a coffee.
