BOU-TEK THE RETAIL REVOLUTION in Milan, Italy by PAOLO FRELLO & PARTNERS

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Article source: PAOLO FRELLO & PARTNERS

The design concept of Bou-tek, the new space designed by Paolo Frello for Mauden Spa, lies all in the title “Retail rEvolution”.

The Web and online buying have completely changed the consumer behaviour. New emerging retail trends have developed such as “Showrooming “, the practice of examining merchandise in a traditional brick and mortar retail store and then buying it online, sometimes at a lower price; ROPO (Research on line, purchase offline), the practice of searching and comparing the product online and then of purchasing it in the traditional store.

Sonnenhof in Jena, Germany by J. MAYER H. UND PARTNER, ARCHITEKTEN

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Article source: J. MAYER H. UND PARTNER, ARCHITEKTEN

Sonnenhof consists of four new buildings with office and residential spaces. Located on a consolidated number of smaller lots in the historical center of Jena, Germany, the separate structures allow for free access through the grounds. Their placement on the outer edges of the plot defines a small-scale outdoor space congruent with the medieval city structure. Its outdoor facilities continue the building’s overall design concept past the edges of the lot. The planned incorporation of commerce, residence, and office enables a flexible pattern of use that also integrates itself conceptually into the surroundings.
