Kawanishi Fam in Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: TTArchitects

Kawanishi Fam is situated in an industrial estate in close proximity to Kurashiki station. It was originally a warehouse used for roasting coffee, but we renovated it to create an open office space. We used the top floor of the four story warehouse due to the lasting impression of the characteristically shaped ceiling, which takes the same form as the original sloped roofing of the warehouse. This ceiling was the primary motivation for us in deciding to undertake the renovation in its current location.

Office Loft in Rome, Italy by Carola Vannini Architecture

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Article source: Carola Vannini Architecture

A Roman ancient market’s storage place has been transformed into a modern work space.

The project’s purpose is to create a strong contrast between the ancient existing structure and the new interior architecture.

The difference between the two functions (storage space during the past centuries and creative space today) has suggested two parallel design approaches: on one hand the intention of preserving the original building’s characteristics and, on the other hand, the need of inserting new and recognizable elements.

The main reason for the extraordinary shape of the building was a narrow and triangular plot. Such a dynamic shape ought to be, in our opinion emphasized by a matching dynamic form. The plot is a wedge between two busy streets: Piątkowska st. &  Aleje Solidarności st. and a tramway line. Paradoxically, vast  number of limitations and prescriptions made the design process much easier. The parallels about the building looking like a vessel are funny on one hand, but quite accurate on the other. The form had to be “sharpen” giving the outcome of marine analogies. JET OFFICE is a shape and form, not a decoration.

Mixed Use Infill 3 Houses and an Office in Antwerp, Belgium by Collectief Noord Architecten

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Collectief Noord Architecten

Three pavillions and a house give shape to an urban garden in the city centre. Each pavillion is similar to the other, but differ like brothers do. Concrete garden blocks in the facade sustain the expression of a garden folly and remind us of the attempts of Wright and Sullivan to democratize ornament. On top of each pavillion there is a roof pavillion: a garden in a garden in the city.
