Hong Kong based architecture studio Cheungvogl has created an open exhibition retail space around a robotic system in the 110 year old iconic department store, Au Pont Rouge in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Completed in 1907, Au Pont Rouge located along the Red Bridge on River Moika was built in the tradition of great European department stores such as Galleries Lafayette in Paris or Selfridges in London. Following the revolution in 1919, the building was renamed and converted into Volodarsky Sewing Factory and in the 1930s, the original cupola was demolished. In 2011, the cupola was reconstructed and the building underwent functional and architectural transformations to restore Au Pont Rouge to its original state as a world class department store in Saint Petersburg.

A collaboration that started with a discussion of what makes one feel happy, whether tangible or a feeling, from small pleasures tolife conquests. Happier cafe is a place for change and evolution, where people feel comfortable but also are key attributes to the space. For that, we believe each person sharing the space should be able to change and contribute to its creation. We imagined it as an art installation, given the lease was granted for only six months, something perhaps temporary, nonetheless imaginative and playful. Using paper was an ideal scheme to allow people to express, build, and adjust the environment according to their mood. Paper became a simple tool that records the change of the space, and the idea that each one of us can seek and manipulate their own search for balance and transformation. Large paper rolls create a time machine installation, forming walkways, niches, and intimate spaces for coach sessions, gatherings and relaxation. The cafe bar is designed as an open counter where users hand pick their snacks and prepare their drinks, and are trusted to pay and collect their own change, enabling and sharing the responsibility and maintenance of the space to the community, an overall feeling that directly connects the people and space together.

The vision of this place was to create community. A model of a micro society where people find their own space for privacy as well as places of gathering, exchange, movement and education, the structure we had found prior to it’s make over already had a great deal of that desired spatial configuration we find today.

The inspiration for this project came from the tension between archaic and contemporary so deeply expressed by the city of Istanbul, where contrasts are the spirit of daily life. To epitomize this kind of tension we adopted a simple but powerful alphabet of opposed neat geometries. The overlaying of linear and monochromatic elements created different perspectives giving deepness to the space. Thus shaping an ideal background to the display of a wide range of product families, enhancing their decorative and plastic qualities and, at the same time, making clear all their technical features.

For the first edition of space&interiors, at The Mall – Porta Nuova, Migliore + Servetto Architects designed an innovative concept of exhibition center. The interior is designed on the basis of a double register: on one hand the commercial purpose offers a detailed analysis of each products on display; on the other hand, an analytical approach allows a dialectic comparison between them.

FASHION[ING] OBJECTS is an instrument for space, light, and threshold that creates maximal impact with minimal means by arranging and reconfiguring everyday objects in an unexpected and extraordinary way. It is an original backdrop installation piece designed and fabricated for an the annual premier fashion event in Austin, Texas held in September 2012. Beginning with the simple idea of an Erwin Hauer inspired screen, the intention for the backdrop was to veil the models as they emerged from backstage, to dapple light as well as to convey a sense of depth and movement beyond.

We report that our new project “KBJ” has completed.
We renovated a fourth floor of the building near Kokubunji station as a share space.
Because of the good equipment, rather than building everything from nothing, our challenge was to produce diversity of rooms with less operations.

The design was determined by the pursuit of two main goals. One was the creation of a space which, thanks to the means of architectural expression, would bring out the gravity of the central government office as well as create an impression of the government’s openness and accessibility to citizens. The other was the durability of the project in terms of utilization and aesthetics, especially taking into account that the project was to be paid for with public funds.

FiftyThree is a space to create – a combination between work space, library, home and a forest. Honest materials and understated confidence. Under this creed – that we never lost sight of – we created a space that involved a very honest and open layout that promoted teamwork and collaboration.
