Three Gardens House in Al Funaitees, Kuwait by AGi architects

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Article source: AGi architects 

It all started with a question:

Are you able to design an outside space that can be used 365 days a year?

For moderate climates such as the Spanish it seems quite simple, but in the case of an extreme weather like that of Kuwait it was necessary to think about new strategies. So we asked the client:

Could you live in an outer space located at different levels?

Could you classify your outdoor activities in evening and daytime actions, summer and winter events? 

These enquiries may be very difficult to answer for a Mediterranean family, but definitely not for those who are used to living in adverse weather conditions and who easily know what can -and cannot- be done during the summer outdoors.

Matryoshka in Seoul, South Korea by L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

Article source: L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

Nonhyun Matryoshka is located in a residential area of four to five-story buildings, situated deep within Gangnam’s main street. Existing housing developments usually require closed boundaries to prevent an invasion of privacy. However, new neighbourhood living facilities desire demarcation in order to populate each domain with its own distinctive feaqtures, as these spaces are made up of many diverse programmes. As such, it has been planned to mark this duality.

Mediterranean Restaurant in Limassol, Cyprus by HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Article source: HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

After the huge success the restaurant concept had in Nicosia and Larnaca, the time came for creating a similar restaurant in Limassol. The challenge here was to apply the same concept as in the other restaurants of the chain, in a space already used as a restaurant, covered with marble on the walls and wood everywhere else. We kept as much as possible, due to the fact that it was a low budget renovation, but refreshed and reused it, to match our concept. This project was in collaboration with interior designer Leonidas Leonidou.

Article source: architecture R/T

Nivim is Goa’s first Gold rated green building certified by the IGBC – Indian Green Building Council in October 2013. It sits on a 1025 square meter property on a hill in a sleepy village in Goa. Before construction, the site had 14 fully mature trees- two jackfruit trees, one mango tree, two tamarind trees and one telful tree. The design of the house incorporates all these existing trees. Two trees in particular were located right in the center of the property and one of them rises up almost 15 meters.
