MM HOUSE in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by OHLAB / oliver hernaiz architecture lab

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Article source: OHLAB / oliver hernaiz architecture lab 

This house looks for the maximum energy efficiency adapting itself to the program, the solar orientation, the views and the slope of the terrain.

The project optimizes the program grouping it in four boxes –kitchen, living-dinning, main bedroom and guest bedrooms- which can be used together or independently. Each box is placed carefully on the ground and rotates on its axis with precision to find the best views and orientation for their use. The bedrooms face the East, the garden and the Bellver Castle; the living and dinning room face South-east, the sea and the garden; the kitchen faces South and the vegetable garden; and in the attic over the living room, the terrace looks towards the view of the sea and its big window over the living room faces South allowing the winter sun to warm the main space of the house while the eaves of the roof protects from the summer sun.

Circumstances

The task was to design an overall reconstruction of the suburban house in a retro style in Lány for weekend living.

The house is located at the outskirts of the village. The street consists of a row of family houses and the edge of the forest. The surrounding development is characterized by layering of various annexes and extensions to original houses. The designed house was preserved in almost original form and from this point of view it was exceptional.

The War Memorial in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Article source: Design Forum International 

The architectural construct of the national war memorial calls for the visual grandeur befitting a national monument and enmesh seamlessly with the magnificent India gate and the traditional Indian chattri. The visual grammar, vocabulary and material palette must be drawn entirely from lutyens’ architectural style; it should be likeAnother Avatar of the Lutyens’ Order’. Equally, the experience intends to invoke in the visitor, the spirit of patriotism, allowing him to pause by creating a controlled visual field and guiding him/her to slowly transition towards a silent, solemn experience of respect and gratitude towards the brave soldiers who put ‘the nation before self’.

OU ALLIN clothing in Shenzhen, China by Shenzhen Bernard Space Design

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Article source: Shenzhen Bernard Space Design 

Traditional expressions of eastern Zen are diversified. However, what we want to express is not the language deliberately posted with such labels but a kind of quiet expression that attaches importance to meaning instead of form. The project covers a showroom of 100 square meters and an office space of 700 square meters. Gene core of the major brand QUALLIN in the showroom is also created by us–trace to its source, and return to simplicity.

Article source: AD ARCHITECTURE 

When it comes to the rural self-built housing, the stereotype image is a countrified house made of multi-storey grids without any sense of design, although it costs a lot on decoration, where a lot of space is wasted.
