Bitxo House stands on the gentle hills of the Pre-Pyrenean landscape of Graugés, a hundred kilometres north of Barcelona, in Catalonia, with the Queralt mountain range at the background. It is located in a suburban area between “mountain style” houses.
The owners, Xavier and Queralt, both of them musicians, acquired, about 20 years ago, a plot to fill the stave of life with their music. Over time, without rush. The design and construction of the house extended for over ten years.
This architecture possesses two functions: a confectionary shop and a concert hall. Both exterior and interior can change their atmosphere according to the two different functions as well as acoustics. In other words, this architecture has a “double face”. Also the client wanted use wood for the interior design to enhance the image of the shop, since Hokkaido is a leading forestry area.
The loft-styled office with elements of 1960s’ pop culture and street art. The interior with “living” compositions and details merging into other plain surfaces.
When working on the project of Energoprom company’s office, architects of IND Office created a bright, contemporary, convenient, and comfortable space for a team with the core consisting of young professionals.
The project is located on a long, narrow strip of land partially occupied by a five-story building, in the traditionally working-class Belleville district of Paris. A significant piece of the neighborhood’s heritage and the site’s unifying building, it has been rehabilitated and its base hollowed out to allow passage.
This house is a private commission made by a young couple who chose a difficult plot on a hill with an inclination of 42 degrees, in front of the Mediterranean Sea with breathtaking views. The task has been to integrate the house within the magnificent landscape that surrounds it and to direct the livable spaces towards the sea. It has also been about working with an extremely tight budget, a complex site and ambitious ideas both from the client and the architect.
The concept of the office for the building contractor RD Construction is based on the following catchwords — City, Future, and Innovation. These underpin the company’s brand book and are pivotal for its activities.

The literal and mythological meaning of the lantern is highly significant throughout Asian history—it leads you through the dark, showing you the way and indicating the beginning and end of a journey. Neri&Hu’s radical transformation of an existing five storey building in Seoul, South Korea, into a grand flagship store for leading Asian skincare brand Sulwhasoo is inspired by these notions of the lantern. The building was designed by Korean architect IROJE and built in 2003. Celebrating the roots of the brand, Neri&Hu wanted to develop a concept with strong connections to Asian culture and traditions, ultimately allowing customers to discover the wealth of Asian wisdom that underpins the Sulwhasoo ethos.
