Cave Restaurant in Sydney, Australia by Koichi Takada Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Koichi Takada Architects

We aim to change the way we ate and chat in restaurants. The acoustic quality of restaurants contributes to the comfort and enjoyment of a dining experience.

We have experimented with noise levels in relationship to the comfort of dining and the ambience a cave like environment can create. The timber profiles generate a sound studio atmosphere, and a pleasant ‘noise’ of dining conversation, offering a more intimate experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.

Two Part Porch by KASE Sudio

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: KASE Sudio

Overlap combines the acts of dining and growing into the same layer. It enhances an important existing view by framing it with a radially arrayed trellis roof that intersects with a more solid roof for weather protection. The act of physical and visual overlap creates juxtaposition between individual elements (i.e. bench, screen, floor, ceiling) which highlights each element’s unique characteristics. The consistent material pallet unifies the porch as a whole, while providing it fresh identity from the original structure.

ZEN Retreat Home in Guanacaste, Costa Rica by SARCO Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: SARCO Architects

This residence, located in the Peninsula Papagayo luxury resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, was penned by its owner to have an “Earthy Contemporary” architectural style. The home was designed in a lot overlooking the sixteenth hole of the Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. The design was thought to maximize the view to the golf course fairway down below, and to also take advantage of multiple existing trees around the home and give the home an exotic tree house feeling. We used a combination of large glazed surfaces for transparency, exposed steel structure, with wood and natural stone accents, to achieve a modern design with a natural feeling.

Article source: JMA

In response to the Hungarian government’s noble mission to erect new buildings for six important cultural institutions that are to be located within the City Park in Budapest, this design concept focuses on the museums of architecture and photography. The concept encompasses all aspects of the design program so as to present the jury, and the Hungarian people, with architectural works of art in both structure and landscape, that distinguish both the Hungarian culture and the whole of Europe in a world-renown manner. The concept intends to present works of art housing works of art harmoniously, providing an intriguing dynamic that will draw all visitors to its environs in a manner that simultaneously embraces interaction, enriches cultural pride, and satisfies a desire for an experiential aesthetic that will be immeasurably fulfilling and long-lasting.

Build a building between its long facade in the depth direction of the plot, forced to squint into the street and facing the neighbor; to overcome these drawbacks of perception have implemented the following tactics:

Spacecraft by Jantzen Studio

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Article source: Jantzen Studio

Spacecraft is a functional art structure made of painted wood and glass. It was designed as a special place in which to explore the beauty of three dimensional complexity, generated from the manipulation of a simple cube form. A wood frame that outlines the perimeter edges of the cube supports an eight-foot by eight-foot glass enclosure made of four sliding glass doors, a glass ceiling, and a glass floor. Each face of the cubes frame has an additional seven square frames attached. Each of these has been rotated the same distance from one corner and connected together into six identical sections. Each of these sections has been connected to the cubes six faces in different directions. As a result, the basic glass cube appears to be spinning apart in every direction, and fragmenting the space in unexpected ways, as each of the frame sections are frozen in time. The bottom section is placed on four legs that raise the structure up off of the ground, and six steps lead the visitors up into the structure.

Spacecraft is part of a series of structures that attempt to create new and exciting forms, through the unique manipulation of simple systems, which generate extreme and unexpected complexity.
