The building is created for two scales of perception – towards the VIA Baltica highway it is designed as a linear volume to be perceived in movement, its form and material – wooden planks reminds Salacgrivas historical ship crafting tradition. On the other side, facing Riga Street and a pedestrian walkway, a smaller scale facade is designed which plastic-ally flows into the public space and is close to pedestrian’s scale of perception. New interior conception and colour principles were created to improve the style of the grocery store chain.

As part of Nike’s overhaul of their flagship store on Union Square, our two-story lobby installation is a dynamic array of over 600 reclaimed bleachers which cantilever out over the escalator leading into the store. The well-worn bleacher board, a material Nike has used in numerous stores to convey familiarity and use, is organized here as a set of vectors that flow through the lobby. Ideally, the anomalies of the material are enough to disrupt the smoothness of the geometry, while the unstable, precarious array disrupts a purely nostalgia reading of the bleachers yielding a wider range of associations.

Taiwanese designer Chih-Kang Chu was inspired by the history of Xuanzhang, a famous Chinese Buddhist monk in Tang dynasty; he resided and practiced Buddhism in Daci Temple before he went on a spiritual journey to India. Fangsuo Book Store is located at the underground level of the commercial streets, which surrounds the Daci Temple. Therefore he had a bold idea of creating a modern underground “Sutra Depository”. Sutra depository is a private place to store all kinds of knowledge, such as books, sutras, and letters in ancient China. Many raw materials and techniques were used to resemble the scene of an ancient sutra depository, for example, concrete columns with large cutting surfaces, bookcases in the loft, the bridge and catwalk across the bookcases.

There was, from the beginning, the intent to work this project as a machine, a TIME CAPTURING MACHINE. This condition was naturally the result of the place, the context and the industrial spirit, that penetrated the imagination. Condition to which it was added the will to capture, within the project, time and its flow. A flow of time and light into the spaces that would say – the architecture captures time, architecture captures the flow of time.

Dear Design studio, design office based in Barcelona, Spain has completed the design of Mynt flagship store, a fashion and accessorize brand. The store of a 40sqm is located in shopping center in Barcelona.
The store design is based on a three-dimensional grid that creates a visually permeable volume, which commands the space, while generating niches to expose the product. The elements of the structure were progressively grown according to a recurrence relation inspired by the Fibbonacci sequence suggesting a progressive and open expansion of space.

noa* (network of architecture) add a cosy yet functional atmosphere to the new ski-rental and shop K&K located on the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi, and outlines a comforting backdrop in the middle of the surrounding Alpine landscape.
The design of the interiors evolves along three contrasting materials: The warmth of the matured local spruce, the soft surfaces of the felt-fabric and the edgy metal furniture elements together aim to create a cosy and comfortable living room atmosphere.
