Unilux Group lighting showroom in LEBANON by SOMA Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: SOMA Architects

With 20 meters of frontage but only 4 meters of depth, the existing ground floor space provided a unique opportunity for a commercial street front fit for a lighting showroom. The client, Unilux Group – the largest supplier of high end light fixtures in Lebanon, requested a unique space in which to exhibit the products sold by the company. Due to the shallow depth of the existing main space, a conscious decision was made to envision the space as larger than its confines of the walls in order to visually appear larger as well as draw pedestrians into the store.

SND fashion store in Chongqing, China by 3GATTI

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: 3GATTI

When I started this retail project there was a simple and appealing idea of hanging everything from the ceiling – thus moving out of the way the furniture and items to be sold so that all the floor space could be free for customers to circulate.  So using a software that simulates the physics of real materials, we imagined an elastic ceiling that was pulled down by the weight of these various objects.  The next step was to think about the technical equipment necessary for the store such as lighting, speakers, sprinklers, cameras, AC and ventilation so it was natural to think of this ceiling as a permeable surface.  This was the origin of the ethereal white ceiling;  an ephemeral support for ephemeral objects.

Wine Culture Center by MSB arquitectos

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Article source: MSB arquitectos

Although the cellar is surrounded by a vineyard, it is not associated with it. The relationship between the building and the surrounding area is practically nonexistent, largely due to the access road that makes a harsh separation between the building and the vineyard at the arrival zone. On the west part of the building, the separation between the vineyard and the building is less prominent, however a possible symbiosis between the built and the natural is unfulfilled by the strong and enclosed character of the warehouse.

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Article source: heri&salli / miss_vdr architektur

The architecture offices heri&salli and miss_vdr architektur /Vienna conceived an exhibition design for the exhibition “Building Culture-think your city different” in the planning workshop in Vienna. The graphic design was supplied by zunder zwo/Vienna.

By means of simply piled up square timbers a kind of “shelf-system” was created. On the one hand it functions as storage area on the other hand it can be used as interactive space.

[IN]-Closure by ABF-lab

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Article source: ABF-lab

At the time when Seattle wonders what course to follow for a lasting transformation on public spaces, the [in]-closure project puts itself as the mainspring of the urban revival for the next five decades. Slow decision-making processes increased by fast practice changes and modern means of communication as globalized dematerialization implies that, nowadays, traditional urban planning methods are reaching the limit. You can plan an urban project; it will be obsolete even before seeing the light.

Unboxed – 100% recycable prefab wooden house in Polignano a Mare Town, Italy by Barberio Colella ARC

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: Barberio Colella ARC

Description: “Unboxed”, designed by Micaela Colella and Maurizio Barberio, is the wooden transposition of the typical characters of the Mediterranean house, as a valid alternative to masonry or frame structure buildings. The house is think to be placed in the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, Apulia. The high standardization of the modules and their total prefabrication, allow to study various solutions easily. This goal is achieved by splitting the building in several basic structural elements designed to be mounted with all the finishes and without thermal bridges. The house is 100% recyclable. It is also completely removable – thus movable – thanks to an innovative foundation made of steel, which allows to reduce or eliminate the excavation. A low inclination roof on the top (5%) allows the installation of solar roof tiles (Tegosolar technology), capable of producing electricity and heat. The house has a clear division between the living and the sleeping area with a glazed corridor/entrance in the middle: a journey in the nature, able to re-establish the contact with the surrounding environment (flow of time) at each passage.

The birth and death of the iWeb (2001 – 2014) in Holland, Netherlands by ONL [Oosterhuis_Lenard]

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

Article source: ONL [Oosterhuis_Lenard]

The iWeb is a single space building that was originally designed as the pavilion for the province of Noord Holland for the Floriade 2002, the international exhibition of flowers and gardening, held every 10 years in The Netherlands. The iWeb was later redeveloped as laboratory for the Hyperbody Research Group (HRG), Delft University of Technology, faculty of Architecture (TU Delft). The building lost its function after a coffee machine destroyed the faculty of Architecture building in May 2008. In September 2014 ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd] (ONL) donated the iWeb building to the public domain by uploading the design and construction datasets to GitHub.
