Catalonia’s International Centre For High Performance In Sailing in Barcelona, Spain by Mestura Arquitectes

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Mestura Arquitectes

The objective of this intervention is to include under the large pergola Photovoltaic in the Forum Park of Barcelona, a program of the International Center for High Performance Sailing.

The uniqueness of the spaces to be treated, starting considerations requires both the environment and the possible actions in outer space, as the configuration of existing architectural elements, which determine many of the decisions of the project. We therefore propose a treatment in the facades that seek not to contrast with the gigantic scale of the element. The south facade is delayed until the first bay of the current structure to avoid contact of the new facilities with existing structural elements, while on the north side openings are covered with a curtain overlapping continuous acts wooden slats as a unitary element and neutral.

Spartan in Austin, Texas by LVMinc

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Article source: LVMinc

After years of working in film in NYC, Currie Person decided to take a leap of faith and return to her hometown of Austin, Texas and open a housewares boutique. She called upon LVMinc to help make her vision come to life.

Over a long weekend in Austin, Larah sketched and designed the concept for Spartan. For a long and narrow space, storage and display were the main requirements and guests needed to feel free to browse around and not feel confined within the space. Larah solved this by introducing a full length wall of tiered cantilevered shelves with an integrated lip to avoid items from falling and below, a suspended millwork piece for additional back up storage.
