At the base of a rocky cliff face on the Turkish coast now stands The Babylon Beach Club housing the Monk Restaurant. Designed by architect Selin Maner, the beach club is a year-round restaurant and concert venue. Once a small restaurant covered in asphalt and concrete, the site has regained its natural look and feel through the use of Kebony wood, which now clads the exterior of the building.

OVD 919 – NEW HOUSE in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: SAOTA 

The Brief was to create a spectacular home which encapsulated the expansive 360 degree mountain and sea views.  Though views out were paramount this needed to be carefully balanced with the required privacy from within.  The living areas were to be open plan – enhancing everyday life.  “The architecture needed focus on creating a contemporary, uncluttered and sculptural building,” said Tamaryn Fourie, senior associate and project team member.

The site is excellently positioned on the mountain ridge below Lions Head with views of Robben Island to the North and Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles to the South.

Cinema Ideal in LISBON, Portugal by José Neves

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: José Neves

Cinema Ideal was the first cinema in Portugal. Located in the heart of Lisbon, between Loreto and Horta Seca streets, it occupies the ground floor of two buildings built in two different epochs – 19th and 20th centuries. Since its inauguration in 1904, the cinema was transformed by multiple interventions, becoming a degraded and architecturally disqualified place, showing exclusively pornographic films during the last three decades.
