Reedom bookstore in Changsha, China by Cao Pu studio

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Cao Pu studio

Located in Changsha, the 17-storey Firework Mansion used to be the dormitory building for staff of the former state-owned fireworks company. Nowadays, young people have moved away, so those left are mostly retired elderly people.

There is a 60 m2 apartment on the top floor of the building. The once high-expense complete shear wall structure forms a light tight environment. Even in daytime, the interior is dim. The owners want to transfer this apartment into a family bookstore, and name it “Reedom”. They wish to provide a good place to go for the residents in Firework Mansion.

SLOVENIAN BOOK CENTER IN TRIESTE, Italy by SoNo Arhitekti

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: SoNo Arhitekti

The design won the 1st prize in the invited architectural competition for the Slovenian book center in Trieste, Italy.

The proximity of the Oberdan Piazza and Fabiani’s National Hall has encouraged us to look more closely to the symbolic ties that are important for the Slovene minority living in Trieste. A hint that would only symbolically  show itself derives from Fabiani’s masterfully designed facade’s decoration. Decorative geometric element has been broken down and transformed into a modern structure, which represents itself in the basic pattern of the bookshelves.
