The primary theme we received from the client was that of integrating the concept of an architectural object that would function as restaurant and club in the center of Constanta town on a plot neighbouring on one side the central park and on the other side an important transition street. thus the object was supposed to become the “new place” in town. of course neither in our case the architectural object couldn’t dissociate itself from correctly analyzing, among others, the target of the two major functional spaces: the users. the discussions with the beneficiary turned out the users are mostly the same for both functions but partly completely different. so since the plot on the other hand failed to impose additional constraints on the concept, we realized that the mark of the place is the mark of the moment, of the user, of his present and future spirit for cultural expectations… and we were the ones that had to begin imprinting this mark.
Artopex, one of Quebec’s largest manufacturers of office furniture, commissioned Lemay to design its new showroom in the heart of historic Old Montreal. The project is located in the prestigious former headquarters of the Royal Bank of Canada. After sitting vacant for more than 25 years, the emblematic building has been completely revitalized and rethought in order to give Artopex a space that reflects its image and values.
A mixed office/park programme was provided in the design brief and has been interpreted in the design as the key for the organisation of the whole area. The main public pedestrian street linking all public services and retail businesses from the area is a linear path connected to the YOHO district. The office park buildings consist of an HNA corporate office building and a series of commercial buildings, namely a large court, two smaller courts and five linear blocks.
How to establish a clear spatial, material and social identity of the neighbourhood? This question was the basic principle when developing the design of objects and their surroundings in terms of deeper connection of future residents with their living environment.
The concept of the 3D erosion is resulting from the critique of the existing master plan with generic volumes in terms of size and height and their arbitrary position. This concept of sub-structuring of the volume is further reflected in the material expression: the initial envelope is defined with the brick layer and the cut-outs with balconies in render.
“Intertwine” is the key to design concept of Heirloom Taipei. The brand “Heirloom” is a new brand established by two young designers with family manufacturing background and east/west crossover cultural experience. The brand logo – “Interweaving H” explicitly demonstrates the multi-level mixture of Heirloom’s brand spirit. Therefore, the theme “Intertwine” was set to abstract Heirloom’s brand statement into three-dimensional store shopping experience.
The architectural project for this house consists of two main volumes; ground floor and superior floor.
The ground floor embraces the architectural program of the house and is organized by a longilineal volume that incorporates all of the wet areas; two bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. This main volume stretches along the whole extension of the house, parallel to the lateral border and demarcating the end and initial point of the terrain.
Large budgets and enormous amounts of energy are spent on the upgrading of major Dutch railway stations in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam. The efforts at creating quality environments related to public transport should not be limited to the station building itself. By paying close attention to all public space surrounding the railway hubs, the promise of true Transport Oriented Development can be kept alive. Maxwan’s plans for Rotterdam Central District emphasize the quality of that public space.
Empowered by their love of place and a history of previous renovations, the owners of this Mt. Sequoyah property sought a complete transformation for their modest ranch-style home. They came to us for a creative and modern approach to design that would provide natural light and views throughout the project. With deep ties to the surrounding neighborhood, there was also a desire to tastefully censor the adjacent homes without completely severing their connection to this charming community.
In Sep. 2014, we created and opened the art work in the gallery \” Mies van der Rohe Haus\” operated by Bezirksamt Lichtenberg von Berlin.
The building of this institution is \”Landhaus Lemke\”, which was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1922/33, reconstructed and utilized now.
The ideology behind the convertible interior design is to remove people from the crowdedness of Beylikduzu into a relaxing atmosphere where the families move freely in the sales office. Our client aim is to build a housing complex with an earth and nature friendly lifestyle by considering aesthetic values. Our main criteria in designing the interior of the complex were that the building excels in the structure and position of the functional layout together with smooth circulation organization.
