Compared with the world’s other economically ascendant regions such as Asia and the Middle East, Latin America has a skyscraper deficit. Poised to harness the economic and symbolic potential of the Bicentennial, Mexico City will celebrate a historic moment with the emergence of a new skyscraper, the Torre Bicentenario. In an architectural age defined by the pursuit of expression at all costs, the Torre Bicentenario is building whose unique form is responsive rather than frivolous; a building whose form facilitates rather than complicates its use: the stacking of two pyramidal forms produces a building simultaneously familiar and unexpected, historic yet visionary.

In Bologna, the restaurant Battibecco is surely more famous than the central lane where it is situated and from which it took name.
The restaurant opened in 1978 into a small location and immediately became famous for the excellent quality of its cooking.

10 years ago, I was at my third year at college. The girlfriend I had at the time, lived at Őrmező, so I had to take the bus no. 139 and get off in front of Don Pepe Menyecske to get to her.
There are very few better-known restaurant chains in Hungary nowadays like Don Pepe. The continued existence in the last 25 years made the brand well-known for the whole society. When I realized the actual gravity of the task to change a brand so recognized and widespread in any ways, I got scared. I got scared because our generation keeps building new brands, shape them to our liking, fine-tune it to our habits. Meanwhile, we have a large number of existing users here, regulars, so the goal was to reinvent the current concept and replace it with a contemporary, forward-looking approach.

The plot is located at the interface between two very different urban logics: on one side, a modern district made up of wide public spaces and large-sized buildings, on the other, the historical town-centre consisting of smaller slate-roof buildings. One of the project’s challenges is to articulate the traditional city and the modern city scales, using both the organisation of its volumes and the layout of its functions.

A low budget renovation for a hotel apartment complex in Ayia Napa. The building was originally build as apartments to be sold to tourists or locals as holiday or weekend homes. Our task was to turn them into a hotel apartment block to be used as long or short term rental apartments. We used light materials and happy vivid colors along with the neutral colors for the big surfaces. All of these come in contrast with the blue Cypriot sky and the bright Cypriot sun! We renovated all of the areas of the hotel either by tearing down unnecessary walls and building new ones where needed as well as changed most of the furniture in the public spaces. All bedrooms where renovated in contemporary style
