Qianhai East Coast Garden 1C , 7B , 7D Show Flat in Guangdong, China by Dickson Hung Associates Design Consultants

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Article source: Dickson Hung Associates Design Consultants 

Curves enlarge minimalist space1C Show Flat

The construction area of this project is about 90 square meters. Fashion is an eternal topic, and it is also a manifestation of characteristic. Coco Chanel said, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Through a new understanding of fashion, the designers used the principle of “less is more” to interpret a different kind of fashion. The whole space is unified with concise, smooth and fluent lines running through the interior, bringing a refreshing and natural breath. The minimalist furniture reflects the wisdom of design and humanistic spirit everywhere. By thinking differently, the designers embedded a tea table into the sofa, and applied irregular cabinets which have graceful arcs. The storage design is another highlight, the cabinets of the living room, the bed of the study room and the TV wall of the bedroom and others are ingenious.

Residência em Atami in Brazil by Elmor Arquitetura

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: Elmor Arquitetura

From the restinga to the intervention plan, the project for a single-family residence in Atami has as its starting point in the invitation to bonding. From the demands for design, moments of relaxation in the family topped the list of problems to be solved; Perhaps, if not for sure, this justifies the four suites that compose the superior volume of the residence that still contains a spacious Master Suite.

Mandal Slipway Housing Complex in Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS 

The “Slippen” housing complex is located in the district of Lower Malmø, at the exit of Mandalselva in the Mannefjord. The town of Mandal has some very special qualities with its location where the river meets the sea, and a stunningly beautiful timber architecture. Lower Malmø on the eastern side of the river has historically been an industrial area, but this is currently under development and will in future become a vital part of Mandal’s vibrant city life. The project is iconic with its unique roof forms and minimal window details, while at the same time evoking the character of the local surroundings, taking its inspiration from the unique character of Mandal: the encounter between timber construction and the open sea. The architecture is steeped in local vernacular building traditions, but with a new and modern interpretation.

Lyon Part-Dieu in France by MVRDV

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Article source: MVRDV

MVRDV’s design focusses on integrating the Lyon Part-Dieu shopping complex to its surrounding urban fabric and hopes to allow everyday life to permeate through it. The street is not only extended through the building via an East-West walkway but also over it by stairways and escalators that take users up and over the complex. MVRDV pushed to reconnect the shopping centre with the facilities in its immediate context. A rearrangement of terraces on the south façade provides a direct connection with the library, and the restructured main east entrance provides access to visitors arriving from the Part-Dieu train station; which is also due to be renovated. The public realm on the street level will extend onto the shopping centre itself, and by rearranging the rooftop, technical facilities and carparks. MVRDV created a series of large terraces and green spaces that are accessible directly from the street. Restaurants, bars and cinemas all spill out onto the terraces but are also independently accessed through covered escalators that navigate around and over the building.

Gymnasium of the Louis de Cormontaigne High School in Metz, France by aEa, agence Engasser+associés

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Article source: v2com

Louis de Cormontaigne’s new gymnasium is located on the tip of the island between the Moselle River on one side and the canal on the other, a bow-shaped structure across from the day school and the motorway, the location’s major acoustic challenge. The building reproduces the orientation of the high school building and is perpendicular to the canal. It has also been designed according to the input of light with broad openings in Reglit glass on the north-by-northeast side to offer unified, ideal natural light. The south-by-southwest side has been designed as very opaque, like a mask—a large acoustic shield to counter the motorway noise. Work on the volumes and roofs, reproducing the shed-like appearance, also adds to the indoor staging and the design of the sports areas. Composed of a main all-purpose gym entirely clad in wood and a secondary gym for body-building, the new gym offers the best possible conditions for all sporting activities.
