\”Saul Z¬¬¬¬¬ona 14\” is a house with many charms. Under one roof, we combine fashion, design, art, objects and food. Here, a union of culture and commerce full of surprises and small treasures entices clients and visitors to take the time to enjoy diverse experiences. It is a place to meet, to stop for a drink at the café, to shop at the store or to visit the terrace to have a long meal or just sit to read. The design’s playful qualities draw from cultural references.

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

By definition, an omnibus refers to a collection of stories made by a single narrator or several authors tied together by a single subject. It also pertains to a collection of objects at once. Along these lines, Omnibus City is a proposal that connects elements of downtown Salt Lake City that are already physically close, yet are experienced individually. Omnibus City strives to create a collection of experiences along three main corridors: Green, Culture (Main Street), and Retail. Acting as a catalyst of activity linking adjacent blocks to Main Street, these passageways are connected through a common design vocabulary of path, pattern, and phenomenon meant to permeate blocks 69 and 70 and guide visitors through its permutations.

College girl by day and dirty minded lady by night?
A local coffee house that transform itself to a dark alcohol bar when sun goes down.
Transforming space, the kind that knows how to create an intimate atmosphere of a neighborhood café and from the exact same components creates the atmosphere of a pickup bar.

Create a space for a brasilian berry!
The interior design shows an exciting interaction between the tile and the vinyl flooring in wood look. The request of the customer was to create a space that is not only in keeping with the philosophy of the fruit, but rather connect the feeling of lightness and physical well-being.

The Zadar Peninsula. Roman Forum. Between the St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the Archeological Museum. The place of intervention is Bruno Milić’s office and housing complex from 1964, which has been converted into 37 rooms with 111 beds. The existing spatial limits were transformed, using new drywall geometries, color rasters, rhythms of ceramic tiles, glossy varnish, acrylic reflective boards and tinted mirrors, to create a new relation towards the antique, modernistic heritage and nature.

Flipboard Cafe, calved from a lost site in the city, is a tiny multi-level nook that serves fine space with a side of excellent coffee and healthy food. The cafe is nestled in the intersection of an emergency exit from Bennetts Lane Jazz Club below, the thoroughfare to Brolly Studios behind, and a two decade old unused shop-front window.

A bowl that morphs into a dome that morphs back into a bowl… The bowl is a theater — the dome a café, restaurant – the warping of dome into bowl & vice versa makes a playground. Light glows up fromthe bleachers & down from the dome; water pours down the shell of the dome.
