Oxnard Marina Residence in California by Bondanelli Design Group

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Bondanelli Design Group

This two story, 8000 s.f. residence is located at the intersection of two channels within the Oxnard Marina. Being a vacation home, and given the maritime location,  the house has a strong Asian theme, and conceptually is inspired by a south East Asian village, with most of the rooms having a separate roof structure, as a cluster of pavilions.
The curvilinear separation between kitchen and public spaces is taken from the shape of the client’s boat docked just outside.

Hublot Pop-Up Store in Paragon Shopping Mall, Singapore by Asylum

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Asylum

Taking advantage of the majestic void space in Paragon Shopping Mall Singapore, an art installation, which spans across two floors, sweeps impressively across the area, inviting a sense of excitement and wonder. Tens of thousands of “black gems” rain down from above, resonating with the momentary quality of a pop-up store – an ephemeral, fleeting point in time, caught in a still image. Illustrating the legacy of the Hublot brand and its innovations, the installation seeks to recreate its notable paradoxical philosophy with an illusory space; magically solid yet porous and structurally monumental yet light.

Cassia Coop Training Centre in Sumatra, Indonesia by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Article source: TYIN tegnestue Architects

Project Description

The work on Cassia Coop Training Centre started during the autumn of 2010. It all began with a visit from a French businessman, Patrick Barthelemy. He had come all the way from Sumatra to our office in Trondheim, and sat before us with a fascinating story and a briefcase full of cinnamon. Part of the story told of how an area of Sumatra supplies 85 % of the cinnamon consumed worldwide. Yet another and more sinister part of the story concerned workers without rights, underpaid and working long days in unsafe and unsanitary factories. The story made an impression on us. After a year of planning we found ourselves deep within the cinnamon forests of Sumatra, ready to design and build a sustainable cinnamon school for local farmers and workers.

Entrance area with Kerinci Lake in front.
