The parcel interested by the intervention is occupied by a small 1970’s warehouse used as a utensils’ depot. A first intervention turned it into a commercial space for the sale of products complementing bathroom furniture; a second intervention amplifies the volume characterized by a big covering vault which repeats the construction system and faces it with a mimesis attitude.

For the purveyor of high-quality, authentic New York City food, their expansion to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City was an opportunity to create a new bakery and retail flagship. The project is located on two levels in a historic 19th century building on Columbus Avenue around the corner from the fabled Dakota Apartments and Central Park. The design emerged as a celebration of textures and color intended to complement the gastronomic delicacies on display. During the design process, probes revealed long-hidden, original historic architectural elements many which were restored for reuse in the space. These included an eye-catching decorative tin ceiling and beautiful interior cast iron columns. Brick walls were revealed. Outside, cast iron storefront trim and rustic brownstone exterior walls were all uncovered and restored. Modern additions of the design included surfaces and furnishings made of black handcrafted steel and white oak. Black subway tile form the back wall of the service area while the seating area is an oasis of minimalist, crafted lighting and furnishings. The flooring is a sturdy, neutral porcelain tile throughout. The interior includes a gold-leaf mural by the artist David Bender. Located in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District, the project received approval from the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Most importantly, since its opening, the locale has become a neighborhood destination.

LODOVNIA, a new mobile ice cream shop with a unique facade, found its place right in the heart of Poznań’s Stary Browar! Since the building took a central spot in the Courtyard of Art, mode:lina™ studio designers approached its façade as if it was a piece of art. Dark walls were extended with the use of almost one thousand white sport cones, referring to LODOVNIA’s fagship product – natural ice cream in a cone. Large glazed panels not only allow to peek in, but they also refect the surrounding Stary Browar’s architecture. The interior is a black and white composition as well, warmed by triangle-shaped elements made of natural plywood. Both the triangles and the shape of a sport cone further connect with the letter V in LODOVNIA’s logo, which makes the architectural result consistent with the ice cream shop’s visual identity system.

The optical shop C_29 / ’Optimist’, is an interwar listed building of a total surface 90m2 and is located in the centre of Chalkida. The space is airy and expands along the central market and the back courtyard / patio which is formed in the core of the building. The building itself is a composite construction with the ground floor being made of bearing masonry and the two floors of reinforced concrete bearer and filling brickwork. The main design aspect was the creation of a gradient technique in the texture of materiality in order to emphasize the reflection and the absorbance of light. This gradient tool continues to exist and plays a significant role even to the choice of materials, resulting in their sound existence or their theoretical absence in the formed space. Some utilitarian objects are transformed into prismatic sculptures. The courtyard space is defined by an imaginary cube. What is more is that the plan does not allow visual contact to the courtyard and the shop. Therefore, there is formed a wall at an angle of 45 degrees in the intermediate space fully covered by mirror , which results in visual continuity between the two spaces.

The flagship store of Road to Awe (RtA) is as streetwise as the clothes produced by this Los Angeles fashion brand. Los Angeles architect Dan Brunn, AIA, created a complex, dream-like space with geometric precision, meditative sensations, and positive/negative dualities. Graced with street exposure from two sides, the streamlined boutique proclaims its variably angled black façades to the public. Dan Brunn Architecture renovated a 1,200-square-foot, 1970s building to create the new retail space, maintaining its footprint, but completely reshaping its geometry to create a more cohesive, sculptural experience. Inside, the 10-foot-tall space features concrete floors, black mirrors, wood surfaces, and blackened steel beams, creating a minimalist backdrop to the edgy fashion. An interior garden contributes calm and brings a mannered sense of nature into the scene.

Foster + Partners has been appointed to design a new office tower as part of an urban precinct that is set to reinvigorate part of Sydney’s iconic Circular Quay. Located between George and Pitt streets – a stone’s throw away from the city’s famous harbour – the scheme is characterised by a network of pedestrian laneways that criss-cross the site at different levels. The laneways will be lined with shops, cafes and bars, celebrating Sydney as a unique destination.
