CASA PETRINI VILLANI IN Polignano a Mare, Bari, Italy BY arch. Antonella MARI

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: arch. Antonella MARI

The house for a psychologist, a nurse and their young daughter is designed as the extension of an existing one-floor building in the historic center of Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy. While the old tufo facade remains almost unmodified, the new volume above is clearly defined through the use of lighter materials: a double skin system – made of  glass/aluminum large windows screened by steel and wood retractable panels – allows natural light in, while preventing heating.

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.
