Set down in a stretching landscape the new studio, its materiality subtle – muted, its form rooted in simplicity – emblematic of modern design, is a controlled gesture, gently resting in the countryside, forming an expression of our ideology.

In addition the brief specified improved space for both onsite and visiting staff, communal space, meeting rooms and a secure children’s play area.

Pop-Arq is an Argentinean branch of Supersudaca. At Supersudaca, and most of all with the Chilean architect Juan Pablo Corvalán, we developed the ‘mueblenstein’ concept, a mixture between furniture and Frankenstein. Those are objects that resolve several problems at a time by adding functions. In reduced or complex spaces, sometimes a single object can solve the whole architectural demand and linking functions not related.

Cassion Castle Architects were commissioned to design this multi-purpose structure next to a former farmhouse in Hampshire. The client, product designer Tom Lloyd, wanted a timber building that could fulfill a series of basic functions as a studio, workshop, garage or storeroom. More importantly, he saw an opportunity to combine architecture and timber craftsmanship to create a simple yet beautiful building that would enhance its setting and complement his home. Tom commissioned Cassion Castle Architects in October 2011 and was closely involved in all aspects of the design.

In developing a NYC flagship site for live and on-demand, indoor spinning classes, the Peloton brain trust recognized the need for a cutting edge video broadcast studio for the streaming element of their visionary program. Company co-founders, CEO, John Foley, COO, Tom Cortese and Marion Roaman, (an indoor cycling pioneer), engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group for the acoustic and isolation design of a broadcast-quality production facility with studio lighting and systems integration. The resulting Production Control Room (PCR) and 60-bike TV Studio is a key component of the 8000 square foot complex. Located at 140 West 23rd Street in NYC, Peloton Chelsea also features spa-quality ambience, a refreshment lounge and, a sports fashion retail shop.

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.
