RESIDENTIAL NASIMA in Rawda, Kuwait by STUDIO MADOUH

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Article source: STUDIO MADOUH

RESIDENTIAL NASIMA aims to question the essential realization of an ever modernizing and homogenizing surrounding urban context. As Kuwait City moves towards drastic and rapid modernization, the architectural values that should protect the culture, traditions of the city, and the individual are starting to disintegrate. To instigate the debate of preserving culture while allowing progress, RESIDENTIAL NASIMA as part of a whole exemplifies a development that blends into the city fabric. The part takes inspiration from the historical, natural landscape and urban clusters, while providing a provoking contemporary design and controlled solutions in contrast to it.

The original building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and it is an example of the so-called “tabià”, a typical alpine construction, famous in our region Veneto which was used in farmer times as stables and barn. The structural type of this tabià is called “a telaio” with wooden beams and pillars.

Since it is placed on a sloping ground, the tabià has a partially buried basement, composed by walls made of stone.

Don Pepe I Menyecske Utca in Budapest, Hungary by GASPARBONTA

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Article source: GASPARBONTA 

10 years ago, I was at my third year at college. The girlfriend I had at the time, lived at Őrmező, so I had to take the bus no. 139 and get off in front of Don Pepe Menyecske to get to her.

There are very few better-known restaurant chains in Hungary nowadays like Don Pepe. The continued existence in the last 25 years made the brand well-known for the whole society. When I realized the actual gravity of the task to change a brand so recognized and widespread in any ways, I got scared. I got scared because our generation keeps building new brands, shape them to our liking, fine-tune it to our habits. Meanwhile, we have a large number of existing users here, regulars, so the goal was to reinvent the current concept and replace it with a contemporary, forward-looking approach.
