Zens showroom in Amsterdam, Netherlands by SchilderScholte architects

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: SchilderScholte architects

The first European store of the design brand Zens Lifestyle is situated on one of Amsterdam’s oldest canals and opened its doors November 2014. In this showroom of 32 square meters Zens presents its minimalist dishes and glassware, such as bowls, carafes, mugs as well as coffee and tea sets. SchilderScholte architects have created this delicate shrine-like interior to reflect the quality and design within the collection of this Asian brand. The interior is a synergy of local design methodology with oriental accents. From the outset of the project the architects looked at the differences in culture and used them as a design premise.

WOODEN BUILDING RECONSTRUCTION OF RIGA SCHOOL OF DESIGN AND ART in Riga, Latvia by Zaigas Gailes Birojs

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: Zaigas Gailes Birojs 

The reconstruction project of the wooden school building was initiated by Europa Nostra foundation in 2001. The purpose of the project was to draw public attention to preservation of neglected wooden architecture heritage by developing an example which would reveal the unique qualities of Riga’s wooden buildings and show contemporary way to their renovation. It was possible to start the reconstruction work only ten years later when European Regional Development Fund financed the project.

Beatrix College Tilburg in Netherlands by architecten|en|en

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: architecten|en|en

Ambition
The assignment was the realization of a new building for the VMBO- school as part of the existing Beatrix College in Tilburg. With the population prognosis of the municipality in mind, the new building possibly had to be removed after 15 years, but the life span had to be as large as 40 years. Therefore the budget was based on temporary housing. The combined design- and building time was limited to one year and the existing buildings had to be able to function during construction. Key elements of the Beatrix College for this construction were: exploitation and maintenance with a sustainable and above all healthy school.

Article source: LAN Architecture

Bordered by rue des Orteaux, rue de Fontarabie, and the Passage Fréquel, the Fréquel-Fontarabie block is the last stage of the development of the mixed development zone of the la Réunion neighborhood. This effort has sought to reduce the visible level of in-habitability, build new housing, value existing resources, and design nearby public facilities in an effort to create quality public spaces. The project to build thirty housing units has pursued a dual goal: to reconstruct the older urban fabric through small interventions within an overall framework of sustainable development.

City of Paris approves MVRDV’s restructuring of 1970s superblock in Montparnasse

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

The City of Paris has given the green light to MVRDV’s ambitious plan for the restructuring of the mixed-use urban block Vandamme Nord at Gaîté-Montparnasse in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The large building complex, built in the 1970s, comprises a shopping centre, offices, a public library, a hotel and an underground car park, all of which will be retrofitted so as to reintroduce the human scale to an urban environment largely characterized by wide boulevards and monolithic structures. In addition to the face-lift provided by a new facade, the accessibility and programmatic identity of each of these programs will be improved through a total internal reorganisation of the complex. The building’s restructuring also foresees extending the existing commercial spaces, creating new office space, a new kindergarten, an expanded library, a conference centre, as well as a number of social housing units.

Du Tour Residence in Laval, Canada by Clairoux

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Our challenge was to transform a family home built in the Fifties into a contemporary residence. The same family has owned the property for decades. Naturally, the house is steeped in memories and, in a sense, is a showcase of family history – this is a quality we were asked to preserve. From the outside, we had an interesting prairie-style “canvas” to work with; and inside, we allowed the house’s unique features to guide our design decisions. Working closely with architects at Open Form, we created a serene and elegant space in harmony with its natural surroundings.
