Aluminum Flower Garden in Tokyo, Japan by MORIYUKI OCHIAI ARCHITECTS / TWOPLUS-A

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Article source: MORIYUKI OCHIAI ARCHITECTS / TWOPLUS-A

During the course of planning the layout for the HANA (Japanese for “flower”) restaurant / bar and event space, we were challenged to come up with a concept that would evoke the floral imagery of the establishment’s eponymous name.

In a country with limited resources such as Japan, the spirit of Monodzukuri is the epitome of ingenuity at the service of craftsmanship.

EL VIENTO in Madrid, España by Otto Medem de la Torriente

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Article source: Otto Medem de la Torriente

After a long search in the surroundings of Madrid I found a plot with special characteristics that excited me from which the project would come up. Large blocks of natural marble emerged from the steep slope. The views over the mountains of Madrid from there were amazing. All these qualities turned into my personal inspiration for the spaces of the housing, both exteriors and interiors.

IXSIR Winery in Jbeil, Lebanon by Raed Abillama Architects

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Article source: Raed Abillama Architects

A living spine of revealed processes and experiences, in strict to the wine making process, debuts from within the existing, resorted, 140 year old house, to flow within the layered functional spaces of the wine factory as a exhibited living wine making body. Integrated within the green thick skin of the Basbina outskirts, in a site that overlooks the northern costal lines from its north-western edges, and the cedar lines from its south eastern stretch, the winery synthesises an old exciting resorted feudal house with the factory’s modern built structure. The initial approach focussed on the complete symbiosis of the built with the natural.
