Morris Law in Gothenburg, Sweden by Bornstein Lyckefors Architects

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Bornstein Lyckefors Architects

Lawyer’s Office Morris Law has the stated ambition to reformulate what business law might mean. The guiding principles of the company’s values are concepts such as “transparency”, “efficiency”, “excellence” and “mindfulness”. Our interpretation of this was to create an open and social workspace without clear hierarchies. One example is the entrance lobby, which is surrounded by a wooden structure made of maple with shelves, mirrors, cork and brass net, acts both as a workspace for the employees, as well as a place to meet customers. Another example is the absence of cellular offices; designing all workplaces the same size and instead divide them with the help of wooden frames, which are also made of maple. Felt, mirrors and cork inside these frames create privacy and noise reduction.

The office of Morris Law is today a work environment without clear hierarchies, where the meetings between employees and customers are in focus.

Courtyard House in Toh Yi Rd, Singapore by Ming Architects

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Ming Architects

Flanked between the koi pond and the swimming pool, the double volume courtyard – a fulcrum to the house, was introduced to break the monotony of spaces in this linear house. Horizontal and vertical movements are endless and ample daylight floods the key living spaces. A 3-storey high feature steel staircase floats above the koi pond, with a vertical feature wall of black river pebbles as its backdrop. A slim bridge suspends over the courtyard and ties the front and rear wings of the house.

ICE Krakow Convention Centre in Poland by Ingarden & Ewý Architects

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: Ingarden & Ewý Architects

ICE Kraków Congress Centre is a modern, world-class venue dedicated to culture – music, opera, ballet, theatre – and congresses. Designed at the highest standards of acoustics and mechanics. Besides the three main halls with 1915, 600, and 300 seats, the shell holds a multifunctional conference space of 550m2. ICE Kraków stands in the most prestigious location in Poland: opposite Wawel Castle, a location that influenced main design decisions. Hiding a multi-story foyer open to a panorama of Kraków, the Vistula embankment façade is spectacularly transparent. The outer shell combines glass, ceramics, and aluminium, with colours ceramic tiles reflecting those of the interior: red of the Auditorium Hall, graphite of Theatre Hall, white of the foyer, and the silvery aluminum used for the roof.

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: JJA / Bespoke Architecture

The simple Hong Kong brick-and-mortar shop which opened in 2013, has been described by DestinAsian magazine as a “1950s American diner”, where the “pink-neon logo” and the “retro-tiled floor” suggests a Hong Kong style cafe where “Wong Kar-Wai meets Grease.” It is from this basis that designer, James JJ Acuna of JJA / Bespoke Architecture formulated the basis of their second global location, at the 72 Courtyard complex in Bangkok.

Hansen, Mixed Use Building in Athens, Greece by AREA, Architecture Research Athens

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: AREA, Architecture Research Athens

This project redefines the mixed-use housing typology of the “polykatoikia”, ubiquitous in Greek cities, in one of the most dense urban neighborhoods of Athens’ center, Patissia. An L-shaped plan is dictated by site orientation and adjacent building mass, creating a small garden to the South. The vertical arrangement of different programs, typically integrated behind a uniform facade of duplicate floors, is articulated here as a “sectional” facade: individual floor levels appear to extend different lengths along the street, varying the relationship of closed to open space at each floor. Along the street, the mass of the building is lifted to provide broad visual access to the private garden, and allow room for two vehicles. At each level of the building, an exterior or transparent space \”bridges\” the street to the backyard along the East party line, whereas the most sheltered interior spaces are concentrated along the opposite party line. This results in a double strategy. On the one hand, the careful manipulation of the building code incorporates a pilotis, a pergola and covered outdoor spaces, creating a porous civic facade that subverts the requirement for the building’s mass to continue that of its neighbors. On the other hand, the near-absence of protruding balconies brings the building’s interior closer to the realm of the street.

Moustiquaire Maurel-Coulombe in Québec, Canada by Guillaume Pelletier Architecte

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Guillaume Pelletier Architecte 

Project Description

Canards Maurel-Coulombe is an artisanal farm that produces the finest Foie Gras in Quebec.

The clients wanted to create a space where customers could have a total gourmet experience of duck foie gras.  Like a Japanese tea room, this project is a space where art, nature, tradition & gastronomy becomes one. The contemporary exterior screen porch is an extension of an old traditional wooden house. The wood timber structure is placed in a way to make a visual connection between the farm and the products boutique.   The tasting room faces the landscape from where you can see the ducks in the field. By night, the screen porch becomes a lantern.
