Broadview Loft in Toronto, Canada by Studio AC

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: Studio AC 

Located in a downtown loft in Toronto, Canada we were asked to design a studio loft space for a young professional that wanted something equally fun, functional and unique. We produced a scheme that revolves around an element we call the ‘bed box’ which features a generous arch entryway and elevation change – a move that produces a signifier for the sleeping quarters and a moment of warmth in opposition to the white and concrete finishes of the rest of the loft. This warmth is achieved through a floor and wall wrapper of finish plywood that holds your feet and eye as you walk in. Initial studies saw this element take on a variety of forms, orientations and materials but the simple arch configuration was a reaction to the clients background, travels and personality. This fed nicely into the form of the curtain track which is the same arch shape in plan as the other is in elevation. This subtle cuing ties the two elements together, one hard and stationary, the other light and dynamic.

Forestry in the Forest in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic by CHYBIK+KRISTOF

The natural and the artificial mingle to become one in the new administrative centre of the Czech Forestry Commission

A project designed by a team under the direction of the Brno based studio Chybik+Kristof has recently won the international competition for the new administrative centre of the Czech Forestry Commission in Hradec Králové. The winning proposal is a two-storey building on the edge of an existing forest, that uses wood extensively as construction material – as requested within the competition. The concept is based on incorporating the forest landscape into a five-finger building to create new relations between the inside office and the outside forest landscape. A nature trail surrounding the building allows to explore the different forest ecotypes, designed by Tomas Babka and breathe.earth.collective.

Brunswick House in Australia by Chan Architecture

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

Article source: Chan Architecture

Renovating a semi-detached, single fronted Edwardian terrace house always poses a unique set of challenges.  The sites are often long and narrow with a shared party wall on one side and an existing house which can be over 100 years old.  The main challenge is always how to create modern, flexible, light-filled spaces with limited site access and a tight budget.

The Coffee Kiosk in Lelystad, Netherlands by attika architekten

Friday, April 6th, 2018

Article source: attika architekten 

This coffee kiosk in the middle of a courtyard in Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet is present and invisible at the same time. Due to a minimalistic structure and a maximum use of glass, the kiosk is sometimes no more than its slatted wooden ceiling, that runs from the outside to the interior, hardly interrupted by the facade. At the same time, the building is an eye catcher standing out because of its smooth, rounded, contemporary design features.
