Birraria Giori in Ferrara, Italy by Rizoma Architetture

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Article source: Rizoma Architetture

Birraria Giori is located in the centre of Ferrara at the feet of the Este Castle. Its prime location meant that it was very important to take into consideration the historical surroundings. The design was based on the principle objective of restoring the front of the bar which is part of series of arches facing the town hall, know as the “covered way”, part of the Vice-Legato palace dating back to 1877. The primary aim of the project was to “clean up” the original structure or design, stripping off the numerous additions and modifications from over the years to reveal the original form and materiality of the arch, and to provide continuation with the rest of the walkway. The gazebo remains intact, and the windows and a new second ceiling are designed around a motif that reflects the famous lantern which burns at the foot of the Este Castle. The interiors are characterised by the use of wood and stone, the shades of the plaster and the tones of the interior reflect the the equilibrium between the old and the modern. The triangular facets of the new bench seating and also the ceiling, decorated with golden flashes, are based on the rustication of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the most important historical building of Ferrara.

Urban 24 in Chicago, Illinois by Studio Dwell Architects

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio Dwell Architects

Looking like a missing tooth, this project helped to complete a gap in the urban fabric of this intimate residential row house street in Chicago. The row-houses were built in the 1890’s, showing wear and demolition over the years. Infilling this small lot provided challenges for the new residence; to not disturb adjacent 100 year old structures, party wall encroachments and to respect the existing scale of the street. The shoring of the adjacent structures and the house’s new foundations required complex design and construction, including a cantilevered concrete foundation wall to avoid interfering with the adjacent party wall footing.

The concept for the Lappeenranta City Theatre is exceptional: the theater has been built on the top floor of a shopping center. The idea, however, is ancient as this is theater coming back to its roots, back to the marketplace, back to the people. Millions of people visiting the shopping center annually will be able to enjoy a variety of plays, while the restaurants cater for intermissions and the hotel offers accommodation.

LE DIAMANT THEATER in Québec, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte architectes in collaboration with STGM architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Saucier + Perrotte architectes 

Our approach is based on the notions of landscape and geology that characterize the built environment of the historic district of Old Québec. Nearby, the strong presence of the Porte Saint-Jean and the defensive system that constitutes the Fortifications of the city of Québec reiterates the dual nature of these buildings that are both architecture and  landscape. Though the surrounding buildings belong to a variety of styles and eras, their  common denominator is based on a strong relationship with the mineral, and an  architectural composition in horizontal strata. This reading of the city as stacked stratum  transcends time so that we find it in all the surrounding buildings. Thus, there is a timeless horizontal frame that serves as an anchor for the realization of a contemporary project in continuity with the old fabric of the city.
