Pfarré lighting design studio in Munich, Germany

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Article source: Pfarré lighting design studio

Project

The former store for antique luminaires im Munich‘s Alt-Schwabing district provided an ideal L-shaped ground plan for the workplaces and other areas of the new studio. All main technical features, such as print/copy, large-format printer, coffee, server, etc. are hidden behind a new space divider, which also houses the product library, and consumable supplies. With this divider, a generous space between divider and the shop windows has been created for meetings and presentations. Thanks to the digitalization of the working process and archives, the size of the studio remained the same as before. However, 5 desks have been reduced in size. A 8 m long shelve unit provides space to work and store, below a pinboard with the same length. At the former studio site out of town PLD is still equipped with a lavish archive and further space for testing, mock-ups, and models.

River Cottage HQ in Axminster, Devon by Satellite Architects

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Article source: Satellite Architects

It’s doing a lot with a little…the diagonal bracing of the timber and the curtain-walling sing off each other,

With focus on innovative design sustainable architecture, we at Satellite Architects have been working closely with River Cottage since 2005. River Cottage implements a fully sustainable policy on building materials, energy and carbon outputs and a fully recyclable policy on waste. We at Satellite Architects share an identical vision for the future of the design and built. At Satellite, sustainability is not seen as an added benefit to architectural design but as an integral part of the process.

Skyone Tower – A legend in the sky by M/s Creative Group

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Article source: M/s Creative Group

In today’s day and age, most of the architecture that surrounds us becomes a kind of background hum, to be noticed only when it is exceptionally striking. When our eyes move around in our surroundings, do we notice the box-shaped edifices that existed in the past or that one building that irks our imagination? The answer is clear and undeniable. A structure that speaks volumes through its design, the Skyone Tower reinforces the term “standing out in a crowd.” An inception of the Creative Group, the curious architects wanted to innovate a building that not only sustains the ability to influence the emotions of the human mind but also encapsulates functionality.

Guggenheim Helsinki in Finland by PLUS-SUM Studio

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Article source: PLUS-SUM Studio

Our proposal strategically intensifies and reimagines the Guggenheim Museum producing an iconic cultural landmark by sculpting natural light through physical and conceptual layers. These strata develop a rich, dynamic and varied experience synergistically contextualizing the museum at multiple scales to the material and cultural fabric of Helsinki and Finland. The design supplants the object/icon building (visually distinct, discrete parts) with a new subtle icon, embedded in Finnish culture (emotional, connected) and redefines Helsinki as an urbanized landscape; an extension of the museum.
