The Fleming Hotel in Wan Chai, Hong Kong by A Work of Substance

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

Article source: A Work of Substance 

A Work of Substance was tasked to redesign and rebrand The Fleming Hotel, originally opened in 2006. A new take on the architecture, interior, products, and identity transformed The Fleming into a 66-room boutique hotel that is a true reflection of Hong Kong. Occupying a building from the 70s’, the hotel stands in Wan Chai close to Victoria Harbour front. The multilayered design concept draws inspiration from the location and history, leveraging Hong Kong’s maritime heritage and 70s’ industrial era to create a cultural, social and efficient character. One landmark that embodies these three elements is the Star Ferry — having connected people across the harbour for over a century, it is a piece of Hong Kong’s collective memory and identity. The Star Ferry, a unique and elegant icon of Hong Kong’s past and present, became the foundation for every design detail, including the custom designed furniture and lighting. Nostalgia is further evoked by colours and scents: Carmine reds and bottle greens — hues seen on the hull of Hong Kong’s ferries, fishing boats, delivery trucks, and temples —and apothecary-inspired toiletries and custom aroma of sandalwood and amber notes, to deliver an authentic sense of place.

Perforated House in Puszczykowo, Poland by SPACELAB

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Article source: SPACELAB 

The perforated house interior appeared in a completely rebuilt one-storey villa of the 1980s. The owners, who had been living there for a couple of years with their two sons, already planned a change of the inconvenient layout of rooms.

The house was surrounded by vast arboreous garden and had a great location, which finally affected the investors’ decision – instead of constructing a bigger building in a new place, they decided to follow the laborious path of total reconstruction of the existing house. This choice meant that the interior together with installations could be totally rebuilt while the exterior could be left intact.

Article source: Wuhan pures design limited company

This project locates at the Jianghan Road, Wuhan,China. It is a BG (Board Game) bar, and also provides light meal and coffee. HUB is the name of this bar, and it is also its brand culture, aiming at offering a communicative and free space for consumers. By analyzing different kinds of Board Game, such as chess games, strategy games, thematic games, etc, we consider the whole place as a game arena and each consumer will play a role in it. Our design enables each consumer to find his own unique position in the bar. Each unique position is connected which forms a huge net. Everyone in this net can observe, communicate and take part in others’ activities. Briefly speaking, consumers are playing games, and they themselves are in the game, too. This is the aim of HUB.

Lakeway Residence in Texas by Clark | Richardson Architects

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Article source: Clark | Richardson Architects

The Lakeway Residence is a contemporary luxury home located in Lakeway, Texas, nestled in the rolling Central Texas Hill Country. This 4 bedroom, 4 bath residence is positioned on a gently sloping site oriented toward distant views that emerge as the treetops descend down the hillside. The double courtyard parti frames outdoor spaces both to the North and South of the residence. To the North, a drive court allows ample space for vehicular access while setting the main entry and massing off as a composition. Passing through the foyer, the high-ceiling living room opens West to a formal dining area and gourmet kitchen on an axis transverse to the courtyard parti. Continuing to the South, 10’ double sliding glass doors open softly to a large pool deck wrapped by the main spaces of the first floor. The long open floor plan, tall ceilings with ample glazing, and the courtyard parti all work in harmony with passive solar principles and prevailing breezes to allow for an efficient green design.

Paraje Barrank in Mexico City, Mexico by anonimous

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: anonimous

The void of the patio organizes two volumes of five levels with 10 apartments measuring 138 m2 each, in the south of Mexico City.

The lattices and spatial organization of the adjoining constructions help to inspire a project that looks inwards.

With an area of 20 x 25 m, the apartments take advantage of the whole frontage to ensure that rooms are filled with light and air. A corridor links the volumes on the south and north sides, and the courtyard between them.

Second Ugliest House on the Mountain in Fayetteville, Arkansas by modus studio

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Article source: modus studio

When investing in your own future, and that of your family, you are investing in a place. If you are an architect, particularly absurd and obsessive questions about where you shall call home become paramount. So, it is a daunting state of affairs when you decide to reside in the second ugliest house on the mountain. It is with great reluctance that my wife (a fellow architect) and I purchased a 90+ year old home in a well-established neighborhood on top of Mount Sequoyah in Fayetteville. Let me stop you right there…if you are thinking classic old historic home with incredible detailing and grandeur just beneath the surface waiting to be revived into its former grandeur…this is not one of those stories.

Brolettouno Apartment in Mantua, Italy by Archiplanstudio

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Article source: Archiplanstudio 

The project involves the restoration of a small apartment for tourist use in the historical centre of Mantova.

The apartment BROLETTOUNO belongs to a long design research path, which emerges in various interventions on built heritage.

Basically we try to keep together two worlds, the one of the old and the one of the new, in a balance able to guarantee the identity of both of them. Light and shadow are kept together in their ambiguity and plurality, without sacrificing the reasons of one at the expense of the other.
