My Panda in Tokyo, Japan by Torafu Architects

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: Torafu Architects

Located at the basement level of Shibuya’s PARCO Part 1 Building, we have designed the interior and exterior of the store for new fashion label ‘my panda’. From ‘Smiles’, the company which created brands such as ‘PASS THE BATON’ and ‘giraffe’, this label is based on a ‘two-tone’ theme. We wanted to design a store which could become iconic to the fashion label such that it may be easily recognized.

The Cabin French Alps in Menuires, France by H2o Architectes

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: H2o Architectes

Our design team was invited to rethink a ski resort apartment in Menuires, France. Located at the far end of a building built in 1965, it has triple orientation that was not valued by the previous layout which was too segmented. The request was to realize the impossible : increase the living space without touching the structure, create 2 bathrooms instead of the one existing, preserve the number of beds, 8 beds in 55m2, all while maintaining separate circultaions for each.

Hard Werken in Kessel-lo, Belgium by i.s.m.architecten

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Article source: i.s.m.architecten

In our opinion architecture is not neutral, it takes a clear position. She moves, surprises and is beautiful. In the creation of good architecture, the role of the client is not to be underestimated. They have to choose the right architect for the realization of their dream. A client that has utter confidence in their architect, as was the case, allows us to push the project further than the direct materialization of the design brief. A critical dialogue between client and architect is an ideal breeding ground for a beautiful project.

Skyve Bistro in Winstedt Rd, Singapore by FARM

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Article source: FARM

Who hasn’t, in their school-going days, skip a class or two, just to sleep in late or catch a movie on a quiet afternoon? In that spirit of playfulness and remembrances of lulling languid days, the design for Skyve Bistro was born. The bistro, thus named, also harks back to the compounds’ previous usage as a secondary school.

Two Houses in Luque, Paraguay by Bauen Architects

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Article source: Bauen Architects

We design in an exposed and desolate plane, no limits shown. For this reason we fold the base plane and we generate the “refuge”. We understand that the main feature of dwellings is care, and the essence of building is letting dwell*. Keeping the space from the popping of any foreign object but for the folding of the base plane, so the dwelling is prepared in is wrinkles, respecting the environment and making that the green constant, allowing the preservation of the inhabitant’s intimacy with its corrugations. Where these folds are broken, openings are generated. And they joined together with bridges wrapped in transparencies at double height, and topped by a fragment of sphere like a roof. Thus, the “Culata Yovai” is ready and disposed in his “tekoha”.

Schlump ONE in Hamburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

The project “Schlump ONE” is located directly at the underground station Schlump in Eimsbüttel district in Hamburg. The original administration building from the 1950s and 90s was gutted, renovated and expanded, and has now been converted into an office building with four possible rental units per floor. The existing data processing center in the courtyard has been transformed into a private university and expanded to include a new building. The building’s facade has been completely renovated and redesigned to form a single unit that freely interprets the original building’s 1950s linear design. The organic formal language of the facade is continued in the design of interiors. The project is embedded in a sophisticated, open space planning design with oversized tree sculptures.
