Cultural Center ‘El Soto’ Renovation in Móstoles, Spain by De Lapuerta y Asensio Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Article source: De Lapuerta y Asensio Arquitectos

In “El Soto” we had to reinvent the commission.

Initially, the task was to develop a basic project, already approved by the City to renew an existing Cultural Centre, which was a focus of activity and tradition in the neighborhood. The challenge was to get as much as possible, with a very limited budget in times of austerity, and with the premise of preserving the existing building.

Osteria Savio Volpe in Vancouver, BC , Canada by S T E . M A R I E ART + DESIGN

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Article source: S T E . M A R I E  ART + DESIGN 

The restaurant is a synthesis of what we call Italian Farmhouse Modern. The design was strongly inspired by three icons of Italian design: Carlo Mollino, Bruno Munari, and Enzo Mari. The result is a balance of simplicity, drama, and irreverence. The finishes are rooted in an earthy quality much like most roadside Osteria’s or country Trattorias found throughout Italy. In that same vein, the food, wine, products, herbs, and preserves are given as much focus as the paintings on the walls. An ongoing interplay between assertive and simple, elemental and modernist is a mainstay of Italian culture. We tried to capture that quintessential Italian juxtaposition by running the theme of humble vs pretty throughout the design. The mix of sconces with fabric lampshades and opaline glass highlight the apposing influence of modernist and “nonna” style in our lighting design. A similar exchange can be seen in the pleated oak walls that act as a modest rhythmic backdrop from which the mix of sartorial banquet seating stansout.As a nod to a simpler time, we keep a courtesy phone at the ready for those who require a lift home after dinner and packing away a Demi John of wine with friends and family.

Article source: TheeAe LTD

The new library is to be the central library combining from 6 different buildings throughout the city. Its purposeful development will bring extensive services to visitors in the center of Varna.

The current design site has its unique building boundary. Especially, the height limit for right to sunshine to the neighbors creates the interesting form by its slope on the roof area. The boundaries are a pre-made form of architecture. It is weather friendly for the seasons of rain and snow by its natural form. To respect this condition has very much necessitated into our design process.

LeJeune Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Open Form

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: v2com

The LeJeune Residence, located in the heart of the Plateau-Mont-Royal Borough of Montreal, Canada, was built in 1890. Its transformation carried out in 2013, involved a play between municipal constraints and the clients’ vision.

The borough’s bylaws called for the preservation and reconstruction of the façade’s original architectural components and the clients wanted a resolutely contemporary project. Architecture Open Form addressed the challenge of these seemingly contradictory demands with a creative solution that catered to both.
