The main concept for the house was the placement of the building on the terrain forming a “L”, creating a patio that integrates both social and intimate areas granting good sun orientation for its inner and outer spaces.

On the interior sliding walls creates flexibility and spacial integration, the natural light and ventilation comes through the big glass panels and roof openings. Six meter high pivot glass doors invites the user to contemplation of the swimming pool and garden.

Foundation for Polish Science Headquarters in Warszawa, Poland by FAAB Architektura

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Article source: FAAB Architektura

The vertical garden, covering front and side elevations, is a tool which allows to integrate the building with its green context. The FNP headquarters has become an element of the landscape in a very common sense. The green face of the building blurs the boundaries between architecture & nature.

This is 3.1 Phillip Lim 2014 Pop- Up store at Shinjuku Isetan, which opens from April 2014 for six months.
This time the shop is located on the third floor of the department store, which had a space with a strong character. We attempt to make five renewals in 6 months, and at this stage we have done two renewals.
In this project, we focus on the brand philosophy of 3.1 Phillip Lim. Several sets of “almost” opposing words are given. “Almost” is the keyword that represents the wide scope of their design directions, and also it liberates their ways of thinking. The keywords are as follows.

Piet & Sarah – Copper Extension by Atelier Vens Vanbelle

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Atelier Vens Vanbelle

The property is situated at the back on the plot and originally consisted of a typical old farmhouse and an extension dating from the 90s, with a distinct architecture: a fully glazed facade, with a curved shape in plan, with a roof which consists of several parallel smaller roofs. The clash of these two building typologies is a strange thing. This house had become too small for the residents, so there was a need for an extra bedroom, bathroom and if feasible also an enclosed entrance hall.
