Villa Arkö in Arkösund, Sweden by Marge Arkitekter AB

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Marge Arkitekter AB

Villa Arkö is a summer house situated on an island in the archipelago of Norrköping that will also have the possibility to house the family over Christmas and fall vacations. A steep slant towards south east with a marvelous view is the benchmark for the placement and the form of the villa. The house contains of an archetypical basic shape with a high-pitched roof completely covered in cedar wood which over time will get a silver grey color and interact with the surrounding cliff landscape.  A glassed lower volume with sedum roofing and terraces is added on and is thereby creating a building which is following the decrease of the slant.  The in-between spaces of the volumes creates out-door spaces in different cardinal directions, on different levels, with and without roofs. Sliding sun shields (with inbuilt mosquito net for the bed rooms) can cover in and protect the house from weather and wind.

Balmori Rooftop Bar in Zacatecas, Mexico by Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

The creative process for this Project experienced multiple design facets in many different levels.The evolution from Schematic Design to Construction Documents was built based on a deductive process of clever decision making. Balmori Rooftop Bar is a project that was born from the necessity of public open space in Roma Norte. The site has unique potentials; it is one of the few rooftop bars in the city & the only one with 300 square meters. Balmori was design with the objective of creating an innovative youthful space which would offer an opportunity for disconnection from the Urban Mass. In the era of technology & globalization, these particles of cities become the lungs of the metropolis. Our design overlaps landscape, graphic design, furniture design and architecture.

Article source: PKMN architectures 

The relationships we establish with the objects we own happen on a very special manner at the interior of our houses, we assume spaces we inhabit by surrounding ourselves with our belongings, thus the way in which we accumulate and display our stuff through the space ends up reflecting our personality.

DIVINATIO in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Liong Lie Architects

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Article source: Liong Lie Architects

Fish restaurant Divinatio is located at the historical harbor of Utrecht, The Netherlands. The objective was to realize a restaurant with a maritime feel for the upper segment of the market. The building is designed to be functional. The contrasts – rough on the outside and smooth on the inside – have been translated in the design. The interior has to appeal to a broad and contemporary group, without discouraging the more traditional public. The visibility lines create oversight and views and the niches create a feeling of intimacy. When choosing the materials, Liong Lie (the architect) took both the visual as tangible effects into account. Leather, blue glass and Corian® have been used in the design. The open kitchen is framed in white Corian® and has a dark back wall which creates the illusion of cooks standing in a theatre. The walls have been covered with an acoustic clay plaster that has a mother of pearl effect which shimmers in the sunlight. The ceiling is made out of tufted leather panels to improve the acoustics. The chandelier appears to be rotating by the computerized lighting that increases and decreases in strength. A reference to a light house. At night the curiosity of the passerby is raised by the big illuminated glass bay window.

Rakafot school grounds in Kiryat Bialik, Israel by BO LANDSCAPE

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Article source: BO LANDSCAPE

About two weeks after construction was complete on the Rakafot School, for which we were the landscape architects, and the opening of the school year, we received a surprising phone call: “I wanted your opinion on adding frogs to the school’s ‘Winter Pond.’ It was the agriculture teacher “We received complaints about mosquitoes, and it seems to be the right way to stop them is by using frogs. Besides, it will be wonderful to hear their croaks along with the children’s loud and cheerful voices.” “It’s a great idea,” we hastened to assure her, with a fantastic inner feeling, “yes, that works.”
