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.

Today the Meierh of it self only existsin its building and settlement typologies. The value of land consists in the location´s history and then at ure of it srelicts. Therefore the new concept will focus on both values and intergrate them equally. With best possible preservance of the existing historical construction, a harmonic com position of contemporary typology and modern architecture will be implemented.

“Starry Night Dining”
StarEight is a new steak house situated at one of the warehouse buildings within a 100-year old factory compound in the city of WuXi, China. A historical re-vitalization design strategy was adopted to preserve most of the original building features with addition of new mezzanine structure to maximize the spatial potentials and turned the old warehouse into a hip F&B landmark.

Located in the iconic night life district of Beirut, the MYU bar/restaurant inhabits an old small liquor factory. The design concept is based on creating 2 separate spaces of bar and restaurant defined by 2 vaults different in scale. These vaults which form a room within a room are made of stretch black fabric that is translucent. The original space is kept as found with graffiti and traces on walls and ceiling. The indirect cold cathodes lighting is dimmable thus allowing the space within the vaults to become darker and more defined once the light is dimmed. The restaurant and the bar communicate by a large \”window\” allowing people to connect visually.

192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, celebrate its industrial heritage and make it relevant to its newly vibrant context. The brief was to provide mixed use combining a desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

The restaurant design included not only interiors, but also the name of the restaurant, logo and elevation, that is comprehensive image setting. The leading element is a newspaper motif, which appears both in the restaurant name and in the interior itself – in the form of a wallpaper as well as “torn” walls and furniture. The guests of the restaurant were supposed to be surprised with the name thereof, not knowing what to expect – hot news or meals from a hot newspaper.
