Nikki Beach Resort in Damour, Lebanon by SOMA architects

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: SOMA architects

Responding to strong and specific data, our proposal for this project purposefully takes into consideration the cultural heritage in which it is set. Situated at terminus of the Damour River, the site is a gently sloping terrain with stupendous views of the Mediterranean and the river. Our proposal utilizes a radical system that is found in several natural formations: a branching configuration. It seemed like the natural solution to gently break down the site’s slope into a series of volumes perfectly oriented to the key sea and river views without obstruction from other buildings. Each “branch” allows direct street access, both pedestrian and vehicular, and soon individual volumes start to emerge following a rigorous strategy of sitting, form and placement in relation to external context, program requirements, and maximized privacy.

Not Whole Fence in Texas by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Not Whole Fence pays homage to the simpler days of baseball, of watching the great American past

ime through a wooden fence. Imagine a child, peeking through the knotholes with the impressionable canvas of youth, evoked by a sense of wonder and hope or devoted fans who cannot afford tickets, sneaking glances through small openings with playfully mischievous eyes, excited by the possibility of joyous victory or getting caught.

Germanina Agriculture Farm in Cyprus by SPARCH SAKELLARIDOU/PAPANIKOLAOU ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: SPARCH SAKELLARIDOU/PAPANIKOLAOU ARCHITECTS

The goal is to transform the site into a hospitality experience, the feeling of space and program into the art of experience, the actions into a viable and flexible development program.

The border: The listed buildings demarcate the central outdoor space with their shape, they accumulate the cultural activities, touristic infrastructure, hospitality, relaxation and entertainment programs (Interactive Museum, Agri-tourism, Baths, Accommodation). The enhancement of uses with reversible constructions of (container) type in a discreet relationship with the listed buildings reinforces the concept of limit and functions as a transitional element from and to the central area (Central Square), into the diffusion area (Natural Element).

Twickenham Stadium Hospitality in United Kingdom by SHH Architects

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: SHH Architects

Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby,was looking to upgrade the customer experience at its food and beverage retail offers in order to be truly world-class across all areas of its offer in time for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, which England is set to host after winning the 2009 selection bid. At the same time, the stadium’s owners – the RFU (Rugby Football Union)- had changed a number of its core branding elements and these also had to be incorporated into any new designs. The result is the Twickenham Experience – a joint venture between the RFU and operator Levy Restaurants(the sports and leisure division of Compass UK & Ireland).

Freedom Room by Comodo and Cibic Workshop

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Comodo and Cibic Workshop

A brand new hospitality concept. A low cost, essential housing module, made and conceived in jail with inmates. A proposal, a product, an exhibition featuring an idea for temporary and social housing, spread hotels, hostels. Can design be a mean for social innovation? Can it provide answers to new emerging needs? In other words, can it be a freedom tool? 

Freedom room is a project developed by Aldo Cibic, Tommaso Corà, Marco Tortoioli Ricci in collaboration with one of the Italian High Security Prisons, Spoleto’s correctional facility. Comodo – a cooperative- has started since 2003 its education activities in that prison, dedicated to inmates’ professional training in design, grapichs and publishing.
