Article source: KTX archiLAB

In Japan, two major types of pharmacies can be found. The first is the drug store, or what can be described as retail pharmacies. This type offers services related to basic medicines as well as parapharmaceutical products. The second type is the dispensing pharmacies, usually related to a nearby clinic or hospital. In this type of pharmacies, the products are prepared in the backyard after the customer presents prescription issued by his doctor. Once prepared, the pharmacist has to explain to the customer about the prescription.

San Jacinto Building in Austin, Texas by Specht Architects

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Specht Architects 

The original poured-in-place concrete warehouse in downtown Austin dates from the early 1900s and is a prime example of the type of building that once populated the warehouse district. Built alongside a once active railroad spur, the building was purchased from its original owner who had performed almost no alterations to the 1915 building. The original concrete frame and brick infill building had been in continuous use as an unconditioned storage space and suffered from what we call “benign neglect”—it hadn’t been upgraded, but it hadn’t been messed up, either.

Thinking Gallery Space in Taipei, Taiwan by Studio In2

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Studio In2

The Thinking Gallery Space provides rental services for exhibitions, parties, and classes.

Design Concept:

Concretizing abstract thinking enables us to sketch outlines on paper. The orientations of thought are like angles and changes in light and shadow, and different people do not necessarily see details of pictures in the same way. Based on this, we derived a means by which to embody thought and created the Thinking Gallery Space, which allows us to enjoy the thinking process in a tranquil atmosphere.

Av.Roma Apartment in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The apartment was too compartmentalized in the social areas.

There was only one common bathroom, since the other was conditioned to the maid’s room, only accessible from the kitchen.

The main idea was to bring together living-room, entrance hall and kitchen in an uninterrupted space, giving access to other compartments through a single indoor hall. The elimination of the maid’s room also enabled increasing the kitchen and the reorganization of the bathrooms.

ENXEBRE in Madrid, Spain by ZOOCO Estudio

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Article source: ZOOCO Estudio

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.
