“Stöðin”, a roadside stop in the Icelandic countryside, is a conjoined restaurant, drive-through, convenience store and gas station. Due to the 65-year long presence of an American army base in the country, Icelandic culture has been shaped by American influences. Stöðin addresses this cultural relationship by incorporating architectural elements from the American diner that contrast the traditional Icelandic building method of in situ cast concrete. The exposed concrete of the exterior bestows the diner with a permanence unknown by its American counterparts creating a friction between its streamlined aesthetics and the rustic frontier. An elongated bar-desk transforms into seating arrangements and characterizes the semicircular restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the scenic fjord Borgarfjörður.

Shiny wooden paneled walls surround the interior along with the counter. These panels exude dignity and the texture create tension and high-quality mood. “Ginza Steak TAJIMA” made its grand opening at Ginza, Tokyo, one of the leading cities in Japan. Initially, our client’s needs were to create high quality and dignity interior using genuine materials. After having further hearing, we noticed that our client was always very familiar with stones. Firstly, we proposed the idea of using solid board panels instead of stones to constitute the walls. As for the base, we cut out big horse chestnut solid board panels into 13 mm thickness, commonly used for making counters with one piece. These specially-manufactured panels have different grain pattern expressions.

The main entrance of the clubhouse, restaurant, swimming pools and other indoor areas are all located on the same level and are connected by ramps to the open air sports facilities, providing easy access to all its users. The building consists of a central space and two ‘wings’ with lower ceilings perpendicular to it. The central space is covered by a rectangular concrete structure that supports a green roof. The upper slab is aligned to the lower street of the condominium, integrating its green roof to landscape that’s visible from the residences.

The story of the two Mochi founders roots in learning how to cook with Pierre Gagnaire and Jean- François Piège in Paris while the other directed BMW World’s restaurant in Munich. Their vision was to create a space where people and ingredients could meet on the highest level of atmosphere and quality. Beyond regular parameters of star cuisine and slick architecture a space should be created challenging a next level of authentic encounter.

The Paris-Roubaix is a one-day, 260km cycling event in the north of France ridden mostly over bluestone cobbles, it is known as The Hell of the North for obvious reasons. With Parisian bistro references and plenty of historic Melbourne bluestone, the new Hell of the North has been crafted into and around an original 19th century hotel on the threshold of Fitzroy and Collingwood.

The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.

Charroux, village of the XVIIth century part of the heritage of the most beautiful villages of France. An ancient franked fortified town, eminent point of the medieval trade shining under the air of Dukes du Bourbonnais. Today mystified, the village looks like a frozen museum where the time seems to have stopped.

This is a neutral architectonic intervention that complements TOA’s (Taller de Operaciones Ambientales) landscaping master plan and Herzog de Meuron’s Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum) located in the Parque Mirador Independencia of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The lookout-‐point and coffee-‐restaurant rivet the natural disemboguement of Av. Independencia but unobtrusively align to the sliding gesture of the landscape. Both facilities were achieved through a single architectonic manoeuver that consisted of an excavation and displacement of the look-‐out ground onto a jutting platform.

Bella Italia is a wine store as well as a restaurant. The owner is a typical warmhearted Sicilian woman. While selling the products of her home country and offering a creative home-style cuisine on an upscale level she transfers the Italian spirit to Germany. “Bella Italia Weine” was run for many years in a small living-room-like place with a very personal atmosphere. To extend the sales area as well as the capacity of seats she decided to move to a new location.
