Chapel Mykonos in Greece by Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

September 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

The interior design that converted legendary Zorbas Bar to Chapel is part of our strategy to return to our #CycladicRoots. This has to do with giving back to the Cycladic interior and exterior spaces the elementary, indigenous qualities that have been eliminated in the past 40 years in the name of modernity.

Arcs have been traditionally employed in the Cyclades to generate enclosure when there was no concrete. Double arched roofs, a 3d geometry that is defined by arcs in various directions, are the only way to make a building when all you have is stones. The interior space feeling of a double arched roof is remarkable, and it is closely interwoven with Cycladic churches are chapels.

Houses for children

With the design of an educational ensemble for Terenten in South Tyrol, the Viennese architectural collective feld72 set out important measures for a new concept of a thriving village structure.

Educational ensemble

The idea of ​​the educational ensemble originated from a study in 2005, which involved the local community to develop a holistic concept for the village. Based on the original building of the 1970s, where the school and the kindergarten were housed together, a concept developed over the years which allows both facilities more space and interaction whilst at the same time integrating the existing village library.The educational ensemble opens itself to the village and vice versa – it becomes part of everyday life. A prerequisite for the implementation of this progressive and modern concept was the exemplary educational autonomy of South Tyrol and the very committed teachers involved in the project.The premise was to create an engaging and activating learning environment that encourages discovery, experimentation and research.

Fl2 Apartment in London, England by Archiplanstudio

September 22nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Archiplanstudio 

The apartment is designed as a dynamic space, which takes different connotations through sliding walls that separate the ritual places of living, such as the kitchen and the bedroomThe space acquires a liquid dimension, where the visual cones overlap and stratifyThe different levels of the floor creates a hierarchy between the living and the sleeping areasThe furnishings are all individually designed and develop the idea of tailored space that avoids the general understanding of iconic design brands, connoting the apartment with a strong character and personality.The project pursues pleasure for details, which is expressed in the accurate design of all the elements that are part of it, from lighting to the flat number on the entrance door.The lamps are all custom made and express a personal research around this piece of furniture which can take on a spiritual and sensual character.The viewer must look closely at the work to discover the intimate details, in order to grasp the subtle and evanescent aspects. Pleasure for details, for dimensions, for the authentic and for the light, is the themes the project has faced.

Initial situation

The cemetery building no longer satisfied the requirements for interfaith use. The perimeter of the new hall for public viewings and funeral services was limited by existing areas for graves and urns, and demanded a sacral interpretation together with a suitable atmosphere.

Office in Kiev, Ukraine by Diff.Studio

Article source: Diff.Studio

Our main challenge in designing this office interior was to use every centimeter of the space in the most efficient way. We kept all zones needed for productive work: recreational, working and meeting area and also left some space for a kitchen and a small bathroom. We separated the meeting area by a wooden bookshelf with black glossy sliding doors. Working space for young and creative team inspires cohesive work and stimulates creative activity.

House in Chau Doc in AnGiang province, Vietnam by NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS

September 22nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal


Located in a suburb of ChauDoc town in AnGiang province, Southern Vietnam, this house is a sharing residence of 3 nuclear families who are kin. Although this project budget was tightened with local standards, which only allowed us to build a house with thin corrugated metal panels, we have tried to satisfy not only the regional spirits but also the rich lifestyle in which is fulfilled by sunlight, greenery and natural ventilation, as it were, living in a half-outdoor gardens.

The façade is wrapped by thin corrugated metal, which contributes not only to save the construction cost but also to blend with surrounding houses, Image Image Courtesy © Hiroyuki Oki photos

Simple House in Jeju Province, Korea by MOONBALSSO(Moon Hoon)

The weather is strong, it dominates jeju life, it is very windy quite often, and weather changes instantaneously.  The basalt rocks are everywhere, demarcating fields, and individual houses. The orum, which is like a little hill, is everywhere, more than 350 of them in jeju island. It creates a scene. The island is sort of an exotica among Koreans, weather and vegetation reminds them of tropics. In the past, it was home for many exiles from the mainland. Time flows rather differently here. Weather is the ruler.

Parque Yucatán Housing is part of a wider project developed in central Mexico which deals with house industrialization processes. The implementation of a mixed construction system proposes the construction of a ground floor by traditional means –a brick and concrete wall closing a certain area- which is technified by a technical module. Over these enclosures, a series of prefabricated 2,44 x 6,10 x 3,06 m modules are lifted, built with metal frame structure and dry construction systems.

The housing complex is situated on a suburban area within the Puebla metropolitan area, and it is characterized through the configuration of certain particularities obtained from slight variations of a basic piece, a regular 12,20 x 6,10 x 3,06 m box.
