R4 in Tokyo, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Florian Busch Architects 

The office, perhaps more than any other single building type of the present day, carries the true notions of the ideologies it is born in.

The R4 building addresses the question how scale and location inform an inner-city office type, and how exactly this contextual necessity might in fact perfectly reflect an environment of unforced, informal, perhaps even natural work efficiency.

PIC Pavillion in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

As part of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the International Prize of Catalonia, the pavilion was conceived as a visual catalog of the various stakeholders involved in its long history. The original request, due to reasons of schedule and budget, was to design an exhibition at one of the smaller rooms of the Palau Robert; the will of the exhibition is to give visibility and recognition to the award. The project comes from the conviction that the small budget allocated can actually build a large and notorious space in a central location of the Palau . The challenge is to consolidate and qualify an illuminated and waterproof space, with the minimum possible installation.

Minä perhonen koti in Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

minä perhonen is a fashion brand and we performed the interior design for their new directly-managed shop minä perhonen koti. The shop mainly showcasing household goods is found on the 1st floor of the Shonan T-SITE complex, where many tenants are located around a Tsutaya book store. The name of the store “koti”, meaning house in Finnish, derives from the fact that it handles everyday life items, such as cushions and tableware. Thus, deliverables included a space to carefully present small objects and showcase product line-ups with color variations.

BIOPOLE, biotech business incubator in Rennes, France by PERIPHERIQUES Architectes

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Article source: PERIPHERIQUES Architectes

The side that we have taken in the urban implantation as well as in the architectural expression consists in an large quadrangle around an atrium-patio. The ambivalent need to create a program preserving the confidentiality of the companies and in the same time providing a good façade isolation leads to a sort of a « fortified » architecture which is being quite the opposite of the desired convivial working space.

Residence Pfarrmessner in Sterzing, Italy by Pedevilla Architects

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Article source: Pedevilla Architects

The design of the recently completed residence Pfarrmessner presents itself to the observer in a uniform and almost solid manner. The building is situated at the southern outskirts of the city of Sterzing/Vipiteno, at approximately 950 meter above sea level. It is also the southernmost city of South Tyrol, an autonomic province of Italy. The residence, which is generally orientated east and westwards, is separated into four storeys, whilst each one of the four apartments develops differently through and on these floors. These very individual arrangements of floor layouts, as well as the patchy positioning of openings and loggias find their common ground in the coherent exterior. Projected as a building of solid construction, it features a concrete bearing structure with an insulated plaster facade. Its monolithic and robust appearance is referring to some regional predominant porphyry stone, which is typically characterised by its reddish-brown colouration. The prefiguration of this very stone was implemented to the facade by the use a high pigmented moulding plaster, marked above all by its organic fine-grain amount.
