SND fashion store in Chongqing, China by 3GATTI

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: 3GATTI

When I started this retail project there was a simple and appealing idea of hanging everything from the ceiling – thus moving out of the way the furniture and items to be sold so that all the floor space could be free for customers to circulate.  So using a software that simulates the physics of real materials, we imagined an elastic ceiling that was pulled down by the weight of these various objects.  The next step was to think about the technical equipment necessary for the store such as lighting, speakers, sprinklers, cameras, AC and ventilation so it was natural to think of this ceiling as a permeable surface.  This was the origin of the ethereal white ceiling;  an ephemeral support for ephemeral objects.

Wine Culture Center by MSB arquitectos

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Article source: MSB arquitectos

Although the cellar is surrounded by a vineyard, it is not associated with it. The relationship between the building and the surrounding area is practically nonexistent, largely due to the access road that makes a harsh separation between the building and the vineyard at the arrival zone. On the west part of the building, the separation between the vineyard and the building is less prominent, however a possible symbiosis between the built and the natural is unfulfilled by the strong and enclosed character of the warehouse.
