The Shadow Spaces in Delhi, India by RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS

Death

Death is unknown and it is final. The rituals of death and the spaces they are conducted in, have a deep significance to the living as well as the dead. For it is through these rituals and these spaces that the rare intersection of life and death takes place, where the living are forced to encounter and contemplate the mortality and fragility of life while simultaneously putting them in touch with the sublime of the absolute. These spaces and rituals are thus, simultaneously for the living and dead, public yet intimately private and personal.

Linea show room in Vilnius, Lithuania by Arches

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: Arches

LINEA – an office  and  the showroom for exclusive quality and interior decoration materials.

The building is located in the historic district Žvėrynas, the former summer resort and recently part of an old town of Vilnius. Rich with old wooden houses and natural vegetation it is considered one of the most preserved historic small scale homesteads of the city. This is what has become the main challenge – to face the strict architectural and urban protection requirements, by the same time to create a contemporary, memorable, open and inviting object for the public use.

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: NOMADE architectes

“It is important for children to like the Maison de la Petite Enfance, for them to feel comfortable there, free yet safe. It has to be gentle and tender with them, participate in their education, help them find their marks and stimulate their imaginations” – The elected officials of Lieusaint

With the children’s well-being in mind this is how NOMADE Architectes designed and carried out the project.

The town of Lieusaint is a community located 35 kilometers to the southeast of Paris in the Seine et Marne département. Serviced by RER line D, it is part of the greater Sénart region.

After a competition for the project, NOMADE Architectes was commissioned to design and build this facility that it wanted to make a symbol of developmental for the region.

The project responded to Lieusaint’s desire to build a prominent facility for early childhood.

Amerland Road in London, England by Giles Pike Architects

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Giles Pike Architects 

The prospect of building a small stand-alone new house on this very restricted garage plot seemed like an improbability until we started to explore the site in three dimensions. We concluded that if we turned the house upside down and arranged the bedrooms and bathrooms on a lower ground floor, with the main living rooms on the ground floor and upper mezzanine levels, then a workable and viable plan form started to emerge. Our brief was to build the largest house possible on this 60 m2 site, which was located at the end of a garden on Velonia Gardens and next to an electricity substation on Amerland Road, with very limited access for excavation. In essence we designed the house in section rather than in plan ie the plan form was generated by the section, and the section through the house allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the interior spaces. Although the house is small in scale, it is not small in stature – in a manner of speaking it is a house that punches above its weight! When you look at the house from the outside it looks remarkably small, but once inside it has the most extraordinary light and airy feel. The positioning of the staircase, central in the house, and being a design feature in its own right encourages the eye to travel up to the mezzanine floor level and down to the basement level, therefore allowing one to perceive the three dimensional quality of the house. On the ground floor, which comprises the entrance off Amerland Road and the kitchen, dining and living areas, one is aware of the space above and space below. The staircase is a relatively lightweight fabrication in steel and glass, with open treads in hard wood, and has a delicacy and a lightness of touch, which echoes the way the house as a whole has been conceived.

The renovation project of the FTI foundation’s headquarters in the heart of Geneva’s industrial urban fabric was undertaken following two primary objectives:

On one hand, the need to activate a collaborative culture amongst the different departments, based on a transversal project dynamic, and on the other hand the need to propose a renewed and coherent client experience in line with the foundation’s values. The users were involved in a participatory co-design process from the start, helping to shape a common vision and to create an optimal user experience.
