Condo Hôtel de Ville in Québec, Canada by ACDF Architecture

 
December 13th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ACDF Architecture

The Hôtel-de-Ville Residence is a multifamily residential project in the Plateau Mont-Royal district of Montreal. This historic workers neighbourhood offers a variety of architectural richness, including the extensive use of traditional red clay brick. The project consolidates a block corner with an existing twostorey building through the construction of a new three-storey building that cantilevers over the existing volume. The project is distinguished by creating unity and cohesion between a patrimonial building and contemporary architecture, through a simple stripped-down language. For ACDF Architecture, the Hôtelde- Ville Residence was an opportunity to reflect on the expression of contemporary urban architecture.

Editions MP in Mexico City by LANZA Atelier

 
December 13th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LANZA Atelier

Editions MP is a project for the offices of a new publisher of art books.

We designed and produced all the furniture. The proposal was to organize all the elements following an unbroken line around the entire perimeter of the space, closing on itself. From the marble sliding door, through the shelves, tables, hanging library and the platform on which the couch rests, all the intervention stood on this virtual line, freeing the central space to make it as flexible as possible.

Primo Cafe Bar Tübingen in Germany by DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

 
December 13th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

The Primo Cafe Bar stands for high-quality coffee, an Italian lifestyle and a sustainable mind-set. In the spirit of this brand philosophy, an authentic interior design concept with natural materials and dedication to detail was created. The café was realized at the Zinser fashion store in Tübingen. Located in the pedestrian zone, it not only attracts people from the outside but also creates value for the store’s retail customers. The continuous glass façade reveals a warm atmosphere to passers-by which – in a symbiosis of light and material – makes them want to enjoy a coffee.

MP House in Sesma, Spain by alcolea+tárrago arquitectos

 
December 13th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: alcolea+tárrago arquitectos

The commission began in a private competition, in which our office was selected not by a particular project, but by the attitude showed to the clients to build a maximum house with a very small budget in a plot with a very sharp slope. And not least, the involvement and commitment, perhaps beyond any logical reason, to propose successive approximations to the project (up to five preliminary projects and a full executive project with its visa) before the final solution.

Jaegersborg Watertower in Klampenborg, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

 
December 13th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter ApS won in 2004 the competition to convert Jægersborg Water Tower into a mixeduse building. On the upper floors, student housing units mark the perimeter of the existing structure. Each unit is expressed by a protruding crystal-like add-on that brings daylight into the apartment, and offers unobstructed views to the surrounding landscape. Together, the crystals and the communal balconies add both a human scale, and a new sculptural layer, that emphasizes the landmark character of the tower. The lower floors are inhabited by a youth center, and contain several large multipurpose rooms. A combination of tall windows and colored panels create a varied pattern that surrounds the youth center. Large garage-style doors on the ground floor open up to extend the active indoor space into the outdoor playground.
