RM Home in Castel San Pietro Terme, Italy by Gian Luca Zoli architect

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Article source: Gian Luca Zoli architect

The family (a couple with a little girl) no longer recognizes itself in the home chosen and furnished a decade ago. The starting point is to give order at all the already existing elements and very different to the stilistic goal the family require but also at the innate but compulsive accumulation trend of the three. A single oak floor becomes the new carpet that overcoats all the ground floor, completely transformed. In the brightness of the light tones of the prevailing finishes, the three major episodes of the dark tones emerge: the kitchen island in gray quartzite; the fireplace and the triangular wardrobe. Both of them are covered in raw black sheets.

Gateway – Deloitte HQ in Brussels, Belgium by JASPERS-EYERS ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Article source: JASPERS-EYERS ARCHITECTS 

As one of the world leaders in financial and business services, Deloitte is also a trailblazer when it comes to innovative, contemporary working culture. It’s no wonder, then, that their new building at the Brussels Airport site in Zaventem would become a reflection of what the company stands for.  It’s an international melting pot, where work and leisure go hand in hand and where flexibility, communication and versatility are key words.

Jaspers-Eyers Architects, which has extensive experience in designing contemporary work environments, took up the challenge for developers Codic and Immobel. The challenge was to transform abstract concepts into tangible architecture that is firmly grounded in the present and future. Architecture with respect for the existing complex, which is partially renovated. The result is both sober and imposing, a modern giant with one eye on the landing strip and the other on Zaventem.

Hat house in Kobe, Japan by FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

The site lying in the middle of the landscape where houses are layered towards Mt. Rokko. While sunny and irregular houses are lined up, there are many homes that open on the south side (sea side), and there is some kind of homogeneity. In building a house in this place, the inner wall was first set at an angle to the light on the south side (sea side), and the axis of the wall was inclined at 45 degrees on the plane. The outer wall was an elongated rectangle in the east and west to the east and west, and the wall extending 45 degrees was enclosed once with a frontage of 5.8 meters and a depth of 13 meters. As a result, the depth of 5.8 meters from the south opening is obliquely about 8.2 meters, so the light gradation appears more clearly. Also, due to the wall tilted at 45 degrees, the light crosses due to the difference in the depth of the space of the light that changes from the east to the west and the material changes, it melts and feels the dimensions of the light over the multidimensional. Moreover, it gives plans migratability, and it generates experiential depth to every direction.
