Seaside Periscope in Gdynia, Poland by Adam Wiercinski Architekt

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: Adam Wiercinski Architekt 

The idea for a public toilet in Gdynia is closely related to the location of the given area. View of the open sea and extending walking paths, suggested concept of creating building that besides its primary function will be set in a seaside tourist character. Periscope building allows its users to observe sea from the interior not through the traditional window. By placing the upper mirror of this periscope mechanism at a height of 4m, view of the water is raised above the boulevard’s level and so the strolling people. Users of the public toilet can see an undisturbed yet always different image of the Baltic Sea. Monolithic, concrete building owes its shape to the hidden periscope structure, but due to the rounded arcade and used raw materials, building with its profile resembles the nearby breakwater, blending with the local landscape. In the gap between the women’s and men’s toilet, there is a tribune from which people can enjoy view of the Baltic Sea. Its form, in contrast to the traditional benches, can hold a larger group of people. Wooden finish of the tribune and its surrounding walls warms raw style of the building. Inside the toilet, as well as outside the building, walls are covered with concrete. Free space under periscope construction is filled with huge pebbles, reminding the breakwater. Simple interior exposes periscope’s mirror with Baltic Sea view. Direct access to the building allows independent use of all the toilet rooms. Whole object in its form and function blends with the coastal mood, creating entirely new point on the promenade path.

Article source: DUBBELDAM Inc. Architecture + Design 

For the new Canadian headquarters of Travelzoo, a global internet media company specializing in travel and entertainment, Dubbeldam Architecture + Design was tasked with creating an interior that would simultaneously balance the impression required of an established international company with the youthful spirit of its enterprise. The project is the unusual merging of a loft-style interior within the context of a ‘Class A’ office building. The new office location on the 23rd floor of a tower above the landmark Toronto Eaton Centre offers panoramic views of the city skyline, City Hall, Lake Ontario and the CN Tower. Within the raw space of exposed concrete floors and a textured ceiling, the design team developed programmatic spaces as distinct volumes, optimizing circulation and views of the city, while also maximizing natural light. The sleek interiors were inspired by images of travel to exciting destinations, while also showcasing the dramatic cityscape of downtown Toronto.

L’Architecture est dans le Pré in Vendée, France by Claas architectes

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Article source: Claas architectes

Some projects are more particular than others, so when my brother asked me to design his house, the personal stakes were great. As a young farmer his financial supports are limited, but he has regular opportunities to build and maintain buildings on the farm. In most cases, they are made of metal fabrics delivered in kit. This know-how combined with its working time flexibility  allowed to conceive the project in self-construction.
