Canards Maurel-Coulombe is an artisanal farm that produces the finest Foie Gras in Quebec.
The clients wanted to create a space where customers could have a total gourmet experience of duck foie gras. Like a Japanese tea room, this project is a space where art, nature, tradition & gastronomy becomes one. The contemporary exterior screen porch is an extension of an old traditional wooden house. The wood timber structure is placed in a way to make a visual connection between the farm and the products boutique. The tasting room faces the landscape from where you can see the ducks in the field. By night, the screen porch becomes a lantern.

ENXEBRE is the new space that has been created after rehabilitating some adjoining units of the restaurant Atrapallada, in Madrid.
The task is to create a multipurpose space that can be divided to accommodate groups of diners of different sizes.
In order not to lose depth or create a fragmented space, two series of sliding doors are arranged as string lattices that limit space but allow visibility.

These Structures Can Be Used As Very Functional Places Such As Pavilions, Or They Can Be Developed Into Various Kinds Of Non-Functional Sculptures. All Of The Structures Can Be Made From Bolting Together Two Panel Types. Both Panel Types Are Curved To An Eleven Foot Radius And Are Four Feet Wide, And Eight Feet Long. Each Of Them Is Made From Three Curved Steel Pipe Frames, Which Are Connected Together With A Series Of Wood Slats. The Slatted Panels Can Be Bolted Together End To End In Either A Horizontal Or Vertical Orientation. If The Panels Intersect Anywhere In The Structure, They Can Also Be Bolted Together At That Intersection. If The Panels Are Used To Create More Functional Structures Like This Shade Pavilion, Solar Panels Can Be Attached To The Curved Slatted Panels (In The Appropriate Location) In Order To Provide Solar Electric Power For Use In And Around The Pavilion.

Walking down a street off Kawahara-Gojo in Kyoto, you will find an old Japanese-style house. The house is over a hundred years old, built in the Meiji era. Giyōfū architecture was the method the master-carpenter applied, copying Western architecture but using Japanese traditional wooden techniques. After being used as print shop and furniture store over the decades, the house was renovated to a co-working space called “MATERIAL KYOTO”.

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.
