The Ixi’im Restaurant in Yucatán, Mexico by Central de Proyectos SCP

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Article source: Central de Proyectos SCP

The Ixi’im Restaurant comprises the re-use of the engine house of an old henequen farm, whose productive splendor in the second half of the 19th century and subsequent decline in the second half of the 20th century has generated new uses for our built cultural heritage. The site consists of several independent structures, including the engine room, which shape the public space or main square. A north – south axis connects, since its original use, the main set of the hacienda with other nearby settlements. The proposal starts by establishing a pause in this circulation through a subtle threshold that contains virtually the space of access to ruin. Referring to the original activity and its industrial elements, the intervention strategy is materialized in a large metallic enclosure that weaves, through the preexisting building, the new architectural program. This articulating frame, whose internal offset liberates the existing walls from structural responsibility, generates a new interstitial space of dialogue between heritage and intervention. At the same time, it allows the filtering of indirect natural light, thermally confining the interior and supporting the display of the largest collection of crafted liquors in the country. Produced by the last active rope factory in Yucatan, the suspended henequén strings in the interior, besides their acoustic function, they witness the material that gave origin to the building. The spatial sequence allows the visitor to transit between epochs, finishing in the contemporary addition, whose physical and visual integration with the main square and its components closes a cycle of respect and belonging.

Arts Center of Verin in Spain by Zooco Estudio

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: Zooco Estudio 

Great home or small town? Arts center of Verin provides the intimacy of a home and the heterogeneity of a town.

The initial approach of the project comes from a previuos  study of the  environment.

From this analysis, we get the conclusion that Concello do Verín stands out by the heterogeneity of its blocks, which have been developed around an urban nucleus. Even though each block has different shapes, the way they are set is the same in most of them.

DASA House in Daegu, South Korea by ‘Snow AIDe

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: ‘Snow AIDe

A small town near Nakdong River is a place where the client spent his youth. He wanted to come back to his hometown and spend rest of his life in his new house. The site was the deepest place in town and a good place to overlook the town. There was a limitation of using site due to the planned future road on the back of bamboo woods. To maximize green space, we placed the house following the shape of the boundary on the town side. The overall form of the house is ascending from the entrance to the upper floor like a ridge.

Broadview Loft in Toronto, Canada by Studio AC

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: Studio AC 

Located in a downtown loft in Toronto, Canada we were asked to design a studio loft space for a young professional that wanted something equally fun, functional and unique. We produced a scheme that revolves around an element we call the ‘bed box’ which features a generous arch entryway and elevation change – a move that produces a signifier for the sleeping quarters and a moment of warmth in opposition to the white and concrete finishes of the rest of the loft. This warmth is achieved through a floor and wall wrapper of finish plywood that holds your feet and eye as you walk in. Initial studies saw this element take on a variety of forms, orientations and materials but the simple arch configuration was a reaction to the clients background, travels and personality. This fed nicely into the form of the curtain track which is the same arch shape in plan as the other is in elevation. This subtle cuing ties the two elements together, one hard and stationary, the other light and dynamic.

Le Poulet Restaurant & Bar in Shenzhen, China by dongqi Architects

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: dongqi Architects

Le Poulet designed by dongqi Architects is a restaurant and bar located in Shenzhen, China, and the total area is around 100 square meters. In this project, the main concept is to add a steel mezzanine to maximize the usable space in the building. During the process of design, in order to minimize the effect of the mezzanine on the original ground floor, the architect chooses to suspend the whole steel structure. As a main element of the design, the steel mezzanine is designed by the architect after discussing with the structral engineer and a good amount of elaborate caculation. A curved steel bar which is calculated accurately goes through the fins of the balustrade. Visually it creates an elegent curve and leads the movement of the space. Structrally, part of the fins of the balustrade are transformed into a load bearing component, while functionally, the others could still play the role of balustrade. The entire steel structure looks like a musical instrument and the shape gives a sense of spacial rhythm.
