Tenhachi House in Tokyo, Japan by .8 TENHACHI ARCHITECT & INTERIOR DESIGN

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Article source: .8 TENHACHI ARCHITECT & INTERIOR DESIGN

This is a renovation for our own apartment in Kanagawa.

.8 (TENHACHI) Architect & Interior design reconfigured the layout of the 67-square-meter property, creating one big open space with two open box spaces. The concrete ceiling and beams are left exposed throughout, contrasting with the white walls and furniture doors that have been added. None of the walls reach the ceiling, which allows us to see that the new infill pieces are different from the structure of the original concrete.

Carlsberg Innovation, Research and Development Center in Obernai, France by Schweitzer & Associés Architectes

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Article source: Schweitzer & Associés Architectes 

The Carlsberg Research and Development Center was built on the site of its subsidiary company Kronenbourg. The articulations of the building are defined by the program: offices, laboratories and process area. Vertical timber slats are built in front of the facades to create a visual and solar filter for inner spaces. The upper parts of the slats are waving to remind the Carlsberg logo. The main ingredients used for beer processing are surrounding the building. A pond filled with water creates mirroring effects and animates the pedestrian way towards the entrance. Patches of hop cover the north facades creating a visual filter. Finally, a monumental barley field is printed on the facade facing the road.

A MEDITERRANEAN HOUSE in Ostuni, Italy by Flore & Venezia

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Article source: Flore & Venezia

Thanks to the possibility to work on the reuse of an old farm, we could reflect about the theme of Mediterranean House.

The old farm was different from the typically character of Puglia’s farm. A principal building in liberty style and many different others, such as garage, barns and storage, composes the farm. The principal villa has just one floor and her façade is a rectangle organised on a vertical axis, so to be perfect symmetrical. To underline decorative parts like windows or the columns of portico, it was used stone. The villa and all the other buildings are organised around small squares.
