There is something in every project that comes from visiting the site and listening to clients. And there is also an interesting part at the beginning of every project that comes from the everyday training.

While the first is a very attractive translation job, the second has to do with the positive part of experience.

Residential Building Zug Schleife in Switzerland by Valerio Olgiati

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: VALERIO OLGIATI

Seen from a distance the floor plates projecting from the facade with their elliptical openings look like flying carpets with ornamental borders. For the residents these elliptical openings generate a sense of distance, since they prevent neighbours from seeing into each other’s apartments. At the same time the correspondence between each of these round forms and the individual apartments gives residents a feeling of living alone in a centre. The perception of space changes according to the point of view and the position of the sun.

SkatePark in Lemvig, Denmark by EFFEKT

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: EFFEKT

By introducing the ‘Skate+Park’ concept, EFFEKT has created a new type of multi-functional and recreational urban park area that bridges user groups of diverse interests and age.

In the spring of 2013, Lemvig Municipality faced a group of citizens eager to transform an empty industrial lot on the city’s harbour front into an area of leisure and recreation. In order to meet the demands of the local population, EFFEKT worked closely with representatives from different user groups to develop a new type of urban space. The result of this collaboration was an integrated skatepark + urban park that offered a range of programmatic features and recreational opportunities. Set in beautiful surroundings, the park has created a new social space in Lemvig, attracting skaters and families from the entire region.

GUANAHANI HOTEL & SPA in ST BARTH, FRENCH WEST INDIES by LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

The spirit of the Guanahani design can be defined as a spontaneous gesture of courtesy: A hug and removal of a hat off a head. Guanahani means Welcome in the Arawak language; it was the first word spoken by the natives as Spanish people arrived to America.  A hat is an iconic piece that is associated to the outdoors; it offers protection to the head as the roofs provide shelter to a house. A Panama hat represents elegant, sophistication, lightness, flexibility, exquisite craftsmanship and beauty. A Panama hat is a perfect integration of form and function.

THORNBURY HOUSE in Victoria, Australia by Mesh Design Projects

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: Mesh Design Projects 

The home is located in Thornbury, an inner northern suburb of Victoria (Australia) which has a number of early century homes, whose aesthetic we admire. We therefore didn’t want to change the nearly 100 year old part of our house, nor the street scape but were looking for a contemporary renovation that suited our needs.Whilst we also required a basic open plan design we didn’t want to live in a large open box and wanted defined areas of functionality.
