White Shining Objects 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Simon Hjermind Jensen / SHJWORKS

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source:  Simon Hjermind Jensen

“We do not know” was the common answer to the passersby, given by Shjworks while they were installing the project and were asked what it was. And it was true; Shjworks could not exactly tell what it was. They knew the project consisted of five white shining objects placed along a stretch of 400 m in the suburb of Husum just outside Copenhagen. They knew the objects would be illuminated from dusk till dawn, and they knew the height of the objects would vary from 4,2 m to 0,6 m. They also knew the project was the winning entry for a competition about urban spaces, arranged by the Copenhagen municipality. Together with the objects they included 7 benches, 3 planters and 95 step stones.

Article source: LUC & PIM

Malawi is one of Africa’s least-developed countries. Especially in the rural areas the facilities are very limited. Which does not mean that there are no possibilities.

In co-operation with Sakaramenta, a social business based in the south of Malawi, Designers Pim van Baarsen and Luc van Hoeckel designed a complete playground from scratch. Located at an old parking lot of the side of the BEIT Cure hospital who specialize in orthopedic treatments for children.

Virtual Reality Veneer by Jantzen studio

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Jantzen studio

For over forty years I have been working as an experimental artist and designer. In all of that time I have become very aware of how important aesthetics are in dictating the amount of the earths resources that are consumed by the human population. Most things, including building, have to look a certain way in order for people to feel good about using them, and most often a lot of resources are consumed just to make these things look a certain way. Much of the stuff we use could be made with much fewer of the earths resources if they did not have to maintain a specific aesthetic, directed toward a specific consumer. As an example buildings, especially houses, in most cases would function very well as places in which we are sheltered from the elements and our basic functional needs are supported without the requirement to maintain a specific aesthetic image. In fact, if we were all blind, it would not matter what our houses looked like as long as they kept us physically comfortable.

World Festival of Interiors announces winners DAY 2

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

World Festival of Interiors announces second set of category winners in the world’s foremost interior design awards

INSIDE – World Festival of Interiors has today announced the final category winners for their annual interior design awards programme. These complete the list of the nine winners who will go head-to-head tomorrow in live crit presentations to a distinguished panel of judges, in a bid to win the World Interior of the Year crown.

Clive Wilkinson Architects claimed the Office category award for their work with the Barbarian Group in New York. The office features an ‘endless’ table that enables the entire office to sit at one free-flowing circular desk. At key locations the desk rises to allow casual meeting spaces in grotto-esque areas under the table. Made up of 870 unique plywood panels, the table equates to a 4,400 square foot surface.A cinema in China that traces back the roots of filmmaking won the Civic, Culture and Transport category. CINE TIMES by One Plus Partnership Limited subtly reminds visitors of the origins of cinema, in an age where new technologies have rapidly changed the industry. Undulating walls symbolise film rolls with thin breaks reminiscent of the breaking and reunifying of film, used in bygone editing processes.In the Education and Health category, CRAB Studio took the award for their Abedian School of Architecture at Bond University in Australia. The bold design optimises spaces throughout the building to allow for relaxation areas and breakout work areas. The judges commended the project for adding a ‘sense of theatre to an education environment.’Another project in Australia was the recipient of the Creative Re-Use award: the Sustainable Industries Education Centre – Tonsley Tafe. The project by MPH Architects and Architectus is a great demonstration of adaptive re-use on a major scale and was described by the judges as ‘thoughtfully considered’. The new single-site facility is the combination of five separate campuses and features a layout based on flexibility and adaptability.These four winners will join yesterday’s category winners in presenting their projects to the INSIDE super jury tomorrow. The winner of the World Interior of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

Final list of Category winners:

Category: Bars & Restaurants
Architect/Designer: JOYCE WANG STUDIO
Project: Mott 32
Location: Hong Kong
Originally a storage facility for family heirlooms forgotten by wealthy Chinese immigrants, Joyce Wang Studio combined this history into their contemporary design. Mott 32 creates a blend of industrial New York design and classical Chinese décor, complemented with an inspired collection of forgotten heirlooms, Colonial-style furnishings and antique Chinese propaganda. Accessibility to the site for diners was also a difficult issue to tackle for the practice due to a long snaking route but this meandering path now creates a more hidden and exclusive arrival experience.

The design of Cine Times traces back to the roots of film making, in an age where movies are rapidly changing with new technologies One Plus Partnership set out to subtly remind visitors of the original black and white pictures of the 19th century. Free flowing walls symbolise the rolls of film with thin breaks reminiscent of the breaking and reunifying the rolls of film. Lights fill every void and hang in multiple directions from the ceiling, allowing visitors to imagine themselves as the star of the movie they are about to see.

The Sustainable Industries Education Centre (SIEC) – Tonsley Tafe project is an initiative of the South Australian government to reduce operating costs of the TafeSA’s Building and Construction Trade Training programs. The scheme sets out to consolidate five aging campuses into a single contemporary site. The new facility is an example of adaptive re-use on a major scale, as 90 per cent of the existing steel structure has been retained and a new flexible and adaptable education facility have been created to provides opportunities for innovation and displays of students’ work. The internal layout successfully provides a variety of spaces for student learning and glazed partitioning is used throughout to maximise the showcasing of work. The internal design surrounds two intersecting streets that separate the public areas and the teaching and learning spaces.

Category: Display
Architect/Designer: Singapore University of Technology and Design
Project: IDC Space: research and display space for the International Design Centre
Location: Singapore

Situated at the heart of the Dover Campus of the Singapore University of Technology and Design, IDC Space is a showcase space for the International Design Centre. The 13m x 16m space hosts an office, a small prototyping lab as well as an exhibition gallery for showcasing some of the most exciting on-going IDC design research work. The space features a ceiling installation comprised of 6000 custom-designed lighting and display components; the light fixtures are based on a patent-pending SUTD/IDC design. Partitions, posters, and exhibition panels are suspended from the ceiling so the space can quickly be reconfigured for multiple uses.

This radically simplified office concept imagines an endless table that physically connects everyone in the office to each other. With a highly constrained budget, the architects adapted an existing office space for a flexible community of 125 to 175 people, recycling perimeter rooms and services for acoustically controlled spaces and clearing the central zone. The endless table’s plywood structure rises from the existing oak floor with pony walls supporting the table, which is lifted to fly over the pathways in the office. By maintaining surface continuity, this results in arches with grotto-like spaces underneath which can accommodate a variety of amenities, meeting spaces, private focused workspace, or bookshelves and other storage. The top surface of the table is an ethereal pearlescent white, with a clear epoxy coating, emphasising its fluid nature.  After being initially drawn by hand and then molded in a physical model, the plywood supporting structure was thereafter entirely shaped by computer-aided design. In its final form, the table is made up of 870 unique plywood panels equating to a 4,400 square foot surface.

Category: Residential
Architect/Designer: JOYCE WANG STUDIO
Project: XINTIANDI PENTHOUSE
Location: Shanghai, China
A three-storey penthouse set in the heart of Shanghai’s Xintiandi district, this private residence boasts some of the best lake and skyline views in the city. A cantilever staircase winds around the double-height atrium and as one ascends the stairs the stunning view unfolds. The dinning area sits within a nest-like environment so the family can enjoy the intimacies of their home. Wood-grain etched concrete, Corten steel and walnut timber line the walls, floors and ceiling in reference to the warehouses of old Shanghai. Geometric graphic patterns are created on the flooring as one material joins another in order to zone various areas in the home.

Category: Retail
Architect/Designer: studio mk27
Project: Cultura Bookstore
Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil
The Cultura bookstore has been designed to be a bookstore for the 21st century, a store where socialising, relaxing and purchasing are all combined. The top floor provides the main area of the store, a large area encased with bookshelves provides an open plan space with lounge chairs where customers can read and discuss. The space also features large tables and can be used for lectures and other events.

Alongside the category winners the following were awarded Highly Commended:

Category: Bars & Restaurants
Architect/Designer: SANJAY PURI ARCHITECTS
Project: Auriga
Location: Mumbai, India
Transformed from a disused warehouse, Auriga is a nightclub and restaurant that creates the feeling of being within a sculpture rather than looking at one. The nightclub on the ground floor is made up of a series of angular aluminium fins that fold to create the roof, the walls, bar and staircase. On the second floor the restaurant is a more fluid design to contrast to the angular shapes downstairs, thin wooden strips flow freely from the ceiling and walls to the bar and kitchen counters. Auriga has been designed and delivered on a small budget and in a sustainable manner, the lower floor is made from the waste metal left over from the manufacturing of air conditioning units and the upper level is leftover wood from other projects.

Located in the center of Shanghai, the Design Commune houses the new flagship store for Design Republic, a modern furniture retailer. The Commune features a design gallery, an event space, a café, a restaurant by Michelin-Starred Chef Jason Atherton, and a one-bedroom Design Republic apartment. Situated within the historic relic of the Police Headquarters built by the British in the 1910s, Neri&Hu introduced a modern glass insertion onto the brick façade creating a direct contrast with the interior, where modern white rooms are juxtaposed with untouched remnants of brick walls.

Created from an existing warehouse, this cost effective education and learning facility uses shipping containers to create lecture offices and studios. An open boulevard creates both easy circulation around the site and acts as an interactive and co-learning area. Prior to designing this project CIT tested the learning outcomes of using shared studio spaces and the results showed that learning improved dramatically when students were directly exposed to their peers work and learning techniques. This outcome saw the design focus on open space and student interaction at the core of the site. Architecture Factory holds 13 workspaces delivered for just €60,000 and accommodates 332 people.

Architect/Designer: a21studio
Project: The Tent
Location: Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa, Vietnam
The Tent is a small spa perched in the folds of a rock face terrace, inside an operating hot spring and mineral resort looking over the main river of Nha Trang city, Vietnam.  One of the biggest constraints of the site is the intense heat from the West, which is constant throughout the year but the Tent’s steep roof with thick thatch helps not only to deflect the sunlight but also blends the project with the surrounding landscape. The roof props lend a distinctive look to the Tent, shields the interior against the elements and also makes up the main structure of the building. The main beams that span the Tent are connected using indigenous building techniques, mortise and tenon joints, together with local materials, dry-stacked stones and coconut leaves, with rocks quarried on site and reinforced steel and tiles. Inside the Tent, the space is divided into two levels, on the lower space there is an infinity mineral pool with traditional wooden furniture. On the upper floor, there is a private bedroom covered by a wood frame and coloured glass with a net installed in the void between the structure and rock, allowing guests to look down to the river below.

Category: Residential
Architect/Designer: Manor Studio Pte Ltd
Project: Chu Lin Road Apartment
Location: Singapore
Chu Lin Road Apartment is an intervention within an apartment built in the 1960s post war period, nestled in the quaint neighbourhood of Chu Lin Road. The original footprint of the apartment was both deep and long but suffered from a lack of natural light and ventilation. The impetus of the new design was to retain the spaciousness of the original layout whilst encouraging maximum cross ventilation and natural light. The false ceiling that ran across the space was removed and the original walls were demolished in favour of an open plan space, following the structural beams. These beams, which once used to cap off the full height brick walls, now support a floating solid pine cabinetry in the middle of the apartment. Designed with different heights and porosity, and extending in various directions, this central cabinet piece is conceived as a sculpture that not only forms the focal point of the apartment but also delineates the spaces while maintaining spatial continuity, ventilation and natural lighting throughout the apartment.

Category: Retail
Architect/Designer: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office
Project: Camper Showroom/Office
Location: Shanghai, China
Inspired by the surrounding urban environment, this Camper Showroom reassembles the Shanghai ‘nong-tang’ alleyways. An exterior lane extends into the showroom creating a sectional cut in the structure and a skylight heightens the experience by casting long linear shadows across the walls throughout the day. Neri&Hu designed the store as their interpretation of a two-storey house slotted in an old warehouse. The project sees grey brick combined with wood salvaged from demolished lane houses. The salvaged wood reveals a history from the paint, newspaper and wallpaper still attached to the planks.
