Clear, effervescent + in-line with a risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirit was the client vision that inspired this eye-popping, yet sophisticated environment for the Rock Companies Executive Suite. ROSSETTI translated the “live, work, play” lifestyle into offices that are executive, yet don’t take themselves too seriously. This office interior ignited a downtown city’s resurgence, bringing life and energy into the once tired and gray city. The vibrant offices mimic the owner’s vision for the city; high-energy and elegant.  Dominate design inspirations include spaces that are clear, effervescent, and executed in eye-popping color and playful design elements.

The funerary volume is located between the existing boxes of niches and creates a compact and dense piece of stone that completes the horizontal landscape of this area of the cementery.

A vault is created to preserve and protect the memory of the deceased people and, at the same time has to generate an intimate and quite space for the family. This way, we propose a dense box of horizontal tiles of grey stone which is externally perforated by only two hollows: the door and the cross.

The Dandenong Precinct Energy Project in Victoria, Australia by PETER HOGG + TOBY REED ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013


The Dandenong Precinct Energy Project (P.E.P.) is a flagship project in the implementation of low carbon energy generation in Victoria. The P.E.P. will supply the buildings in a 7 hectare redevelopment precinct with electricity and heating thermal energy (Cogeneration) in the form of hot water with twice the efficiency of a typical gas fired power station, with less than half the carbon emissions of a coal fired power station. In addition, some building’s will utilize the hot water produced to run absorption chillers to provide cooling, resulting in even greater efficiencies, and further reduced emissions.

Glass office SOHO in Shanghai, China by AIM Architecture

Article source: AIM Architecture 

An all glass and mirror inner cladding exposes the infrastructure of SOHO’s new office building in Shanghai. The glass creates manifold reflections of the sales models and meeting rooms, while leaving the original height and structure in view. This creates a ‘double reality’ that merges with the stunning views of downtown Shanghai.

MODERN BARN in Wilton, Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

This weekend retreat was designed for a couple who are actively engaged in the arts—he as a Broadway producer, she as a fashion editor. The architects were commissioned to reconstruct a historic gambrel hay barn which had been partially destroyed in a catastrophic fire, and to re-think the interior to become a new house for the couple and their two Labrador retrievers. The barn is one of several buildings which were once part of a working dairy farm.

747 Wing House in Malibu by David Hertz Architects

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: David Hertz Architects

This project exists on a 55-acre property in the remote hills of Malibu with unique topography and panoramic views looking out to a nearby mountain range, a valley, and the Pacific Ocean with islands in the distance. In searching for inspiration, I imagined a roof structure that would allow for a un-obstructed view of the mountain range and distant views.The client, a woman, requested curvilinear, feminine shapes for the building.
