Apartment in Sceaux, France by h2o architectes

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: h2o architectes

This interior design and refurbishment project takes place in a 1960’s housing block built out of finely finished armed concrete. Unchanged since its construction, the ancient apartment followed a relatively classical distribution with closed rooms yet with rather generous openings onto the surrounding green urban environment. The commission was to transform the space including a spacious living room and bedroom, a semi-open kitchen and a temporary bed-sit accommodation for guests. The structural elements as well as the mains network (supplies and evacuation) had to remain unchanged. We imagined the volume of the apartment as a free plan, opened up to a maximum in order to make the best of the space throughout the flat, which receives natural light on both sides.

Seroeni is a casual Peranakan Chinese cuisine restaurant, derived from the other word for chrysanthemum, which is renowned as one of the Four Gentlemen in Chinese – East Asian art and the Japanese Emperor official seal. Seroeni aims to introduce Peranakan Chinese food, also knowns as “Nyonya” cuisine which was invented by the descendants of Chinese immigrants who came to the Malay archipelago and British Malaya (now Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore) between the 15th and 17th centuries.. Inspired by the food, the design concept is formed.

The Unseen Green in Limassol, Cyprus by Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio 

The design is based on the creation of a small hybrid “Green Garden” that interconnects both the interior and exterior of the house. This new proposed green space, has the ability to host the social activities of the owners in a more causal manner, within the shelter provided by the overwhelming plantation. Plants are used as a “filtering” tool for the external surrounding ‘noise’ and sunlight, providing a great sense of privacy and tranquility.

CAFE ZERO in Punjab, India by Studio Ardete

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Studio Ardete

Designed for the staff of a pharmaceutical factory in a remote location of Punjab, Café Zero came into existence as a purely need- based space. With very limited access to eateries and cafes, the workers required a space where they could have their meals in a comfortable atmosphere.

An old factory warehouse was chosen for the purpose of setting up the café; the only challenge was the budget.

Belsize Park in North West London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to carry out the design and complete refurbishment of this 2138 square foot duplex apartment in Belsize Park, North West London. As a blank canvas, the property already demonstrated a spectacular foundation from which to start; with its extraordinary high ceilings, curved walls and door to the Drawing Room, elaborate original cornicing and enormous windows flooding the rooms with light. This stunning backdrop coupled with the client’s international influences, allowed Roselind Wilson Design to produce a stunning architectural space; modern yet classic and with a focus on rich texture and ambient lighting. Through the use of raw and textured timbers, bronze, antiqued brass and copper, marbles and a monochromatic palette a truly beautiful and welcoming space was created for the client to call home.

Curio Stair of Encounters – Bloomberg Hong Kong Office in China by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Ordinary things contain the deepest mysteries… If anything is described by an architectural plan, it is the nature of human relationships, since the elements whose trace it records – walls, doors, windows and stairs – are employed first to divide and then selectively to re-unite inhabited space.

Robin Evans’ 1978 essay Figures, Doors and Passages analyzes how ordinary elements of a plan and their arrangements interact and shape occupancy. A simple corner or window opening is in fact inscribed with a complex matrix of spatial relationships that determine how a space is used. Neri&Hu’s design for Bloomberg Hong Kong’s internal office stair is in part inspired by the mundane elements of space-making – windows, passages, staircases and thresholds. The client’s brief was to design a staircase to connect the 3 different floors of their office with the explicit rule that this stair should to be used daily as the only vertical connection within the office to encourage employee interaction. Part of the brief was to also create a design that would respond to the locale of Hong Kong to create a link to the larger context of the city. The site is situated in the client’s existing office, within a typical office tower and surrounded by existing conference rooms, break-out areas, a recording studio and an auditorium. The existing spiral staircase was sculpturally iconic but the geometry was not conducive for the daily high traffic volume. Our challenge was re-design a staircase that would work within the structural limitations of the knock-out panels in the floor slab, while still creating a more spacious journey.

Bundaroo House in New South Wales, Australia by tziallas omeara architecture studio

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: tziallas omeara architecture studio

“The brief for this project was to design a beautiful addition to a heritage listed Bowral cottage – one which was private and allowed the existing cottage to appear unchanged from the street. The clients were passionate about restoration of the original parts of the building, and replacing the dysfunctional 1980’s addition to the rear of the building. The additions were to maximise the solar-passive performance of the house, create a large entertainers kitchen in the heart of the home, allow for a new living and dining area, provide for a new sunken media room and guest accommodation. The client was keen to explore a contemporary approach to the new work, allowing for the new addition to juxtapose with the original weatherboard cottage. Most importantly, the house had to ‘work well’ from an environmental performance perspective. The new additions have been detailed to eliminate thermal bridging, create a well insulated and airtight envelope and to maximise passive solar heat gain and natural cross ventilation. The house has been designed to capture the sunlight in winter, and to exclude it from heating up the spaces in summer. A geo-thermal heat recovery system heats the pool, floor slab and domestic hot water and 35kW of solar panels provide more electricity than the occupants are likely to use (feeding the surplus back into the grid). A charging station in the garage powers an electric vehicle.”
