The automotive showroom is situated by the main gateway to the city Herning in Jutland, Denmark. The municipality of Herning and the client both wished for a showroom diverging from the stereotypical and one that simultaneously would stand out as an architectural icon. The solution became a rhombic volume divided into two halves by a diagonal cut,creating a dynamic and lucid showroom facing the main road, contrasted by the stable mass of a service centre behind. Placed at the edge of town it is a building where interior and exterior collaborate around the meeting between city and nature, and between function and space.

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.

The main idea for the & tradition showroom is to create a contemporary small scale version of a monochrome and harmonious village structure inside a big warehouse. The idea is to make the structure balance between a coherent minimalist spatial art installation – drawing on inspiration from works of artists and architects such as Donald Judd, Richard Serra and Peter Eisenman, combined with classic architectural elements from the village – the main street, the alley, the square, the tower, the city wall, etc., etc. Each house is this village will be built with a completely matt monochrome exterior – like a architectural model landscape in 1:1 only revealing each house very differentiated interior with each its own function and purpose. One house would be all wood inside resembling a minimalist Japanese pavilion. Another would be all color inside inspired more by Luis Barragan or Carlo Scarpa, creating a completely different universe for displaying the &tradition products. One house could serve as a meeting space, one as a workshop for product development, one as the place where the staff gathers to eat their lunch, etc. etc. Some of these houses will be creating in collaboration with some of the companies &tradition work with – like Kvadrat and Dinesen, where clients are also able to see and choose materials for the furniture.

The space is designed as an R & D studio within headquarter of a textile company. The design concept was built on the physical relations among the users (R & D personnel), products, accessories, and the materials.
It was observed that actions of sitting, walking, working, evaluating the products by comparisons, performed in ordinary levels and locations, are limiting the function of R & D.

The goal in our project for the Oak Showroom has been to turn a space that was originally thought to showcase lots of different materials into a space with an atmosphere, a place that can tell its future clients that Oak is the right company to chose for their projects.

Performance, efficiency and energy savings have always been the objectives of the Linea Light Group, achieved by offering high quality products with particular attention to the environment and the consumer. It is no coincidence that Porsche Italia S.p.a. has chosen LED products to illuminate the brand new Boxster, Cayman Panamera and Cayenne displayed in its large, glazed open plan showroom, to allow the many Porsche lovers to admire the vehicles in all their splendour, even without natural light. The project includes replacing more than 400 light sources with new Linea Light Group LED products, installed both inside and outside the new showroom and in the offices. During the initial stages of the project net savings of over 60% were forecast for each area: following installation and measurement, these expectations were far exceeded, with an increase in savings of 15% compared to the forecasts. What is more, the annual net savings obtained are remarkable and, as confirmed directly by Porsche Italia.

Nestled in the Japanese Alps, the INCS “Zero” Factory emerges from the earth and opens to the sky, creating a fusion of landscape and architecture. With a desire to express the marriage of art and technology, the new “Zero” Factory serves as a demonstration facility for the rapid prototyping technologies employed by INCS. Like its Swiss counterpart, Nagano’s mountainous locale is home to high-tech industries—its rugged seclusion affording the focused intensity of thought and experimentation required for precision research and development.

This is the salon and the showroom by Maruwakaya – the company which produces “monozukuri” (which means a craftsmanship or art of design and manufacturing) that links traditional crafts to Contemporary art.
The counter made from Japanese cedar is employed as the center of the room; also, we designed the room by applying only the lintels, the sills, and the pillars.
