Article source: Zemberek Design Office

By reason of cooperation between two major textile companies, the necessity  of a new design office with additional showroom for guest designer team is revealed in existing manufacturing building of the host company. Approach of the architectural team, according to the demand was,  creating a perception of “non-belonging” in the space, to highlight the difference between existing function and the new one, also maintaining the balance, between; using the attractive and colorful interior workspace as a showcase, and preserving the privacy of the designers. Another demand  that shapes the concept was  a multi-functional area which serves as a design office and a showroom.

Architectural team aimed to meet all demands with a single shell.

Skype HQ in California by Design Blitz

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Design Blitz

Skype’s primary goal was to create a world-class o”ce that would di!erentiate them from their Bay Area competitors in the recruitment of talent. Their new space not only had to be a design statement that reflected their modern but fun personality, but it also had to meet very specific acoustic requirements to support the company’s extensive use of AV. Skype hired Design Blitz architects to design their new North American headquarters on an aggressive budget and schedule. Despite being one of several new o”ces that year for Skype, the completed project ultimately became the standard for the international communications company and also achieved LEED Silver certification.

A STADIUM TO THE CITY in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by BCMF Arquitetos

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: BCMF Arquitetos


Belo Horizonte. A modernist building in a modernist landscape.

Mineirão Stadium and Pampulha neighborhood were conceived during the 40´s, at the beginning of the structuralist fever that would conduct the economic policies of Brazil during the following decades. Not by coincidence, Pampulha´s mentor was Juscelino Kubitschek, then mayor of the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, who granted commissions to vanguard professionals such as young Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx to capture the essence of his modern envisions. Quite a successful essay for his Brasilia from 1960.
