Souvlaki Bar Restaurant in Nicosia, Cyprus by HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

 
March 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

The concept for this pioneer restaurant was to successfully combine tradition with contemporary design and has set the example for other similar restaurants to follow. The result is a space with traditional atmosphere created in a unique and contemporary way just like the restaurant serves a traditional product in a unique and contemporary way. A low budget restaurant in minimal lines with “clean” materials in a combination of cold and warm colors. Inspired mostly by it’s name, the bar is the dominant element in the space. You can watch and enjoy how your food is being cooked sited on stools and counters or on conventional chairs and tables. This project was in collaboration with interior designer Leonidas Leonidou.

The story of the lighting design works started with a simple question; Does ‘light’ really touch us emotionally?

Inspired by the late Ottoman architecture, the mosque consists of a main dome, eight carrier columns, four secondary domes, five entrance domes and four three-balcony-minarets. The main dome has inner diameter of 20m and height of 32m. The height of minarets is 61m. The mosque is extending in the west and east directions with a domed portico surrounding the courtyard.

Avenue Leclerc office building in Boulogne-Billancourt, France by Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

 
March 15th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

The project consists of the renovation of an office existing building of 10.544 m², the redesign of the facade taking into account the overall structure, the renovation of the technical premises, and the optimizing of office planning. The building requires a new architectural point of departure; the new project is justified in light of the evolution of conditions of usage as well as regards energy standards. The idea of total flexibility is pursued throughout: through the uniform grid patterning of the facade paneling into 1.35m modules corresponding to the 1.35m modules of the suspended ceilings, and through the electrical and technical “irrigation” of the offices by means of raised floors. The building’s new image will form both out of restraint regarding the economy of means and the taking into account of the client’s expressed wishes and needs. Our proposition highlights generosity of space, light, comfort, transparency and wellbeing. The problem of energy will be approached subtly, with the aim of upgrading the efficiency of the facades and facilities “to measure”, rather that simply applying current regulations brutally. The building will be wiped entirely clean of all superfluous elements.

Grafton Street NHS Car Park in Manchester, England by Sheppard Robson Architects

 
March 15th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sheppard Robson Architects

Aliva UK was commissioned to develop an eye-catching, 3D-effect façade that would bring vitality to a hospital parking ‘super-hub’ for visitors. Architect Sheppard Robson’s brief was to extend the existing Grafton Street car park and create a striking local landmark for Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust, which cares for a million patients every year.

The brief

The car park building is normally seen from the side, not face-on, so the architects wanted cladding that would ‘step off’ the building, pushing out a further 800mm.

Sheppard Robson specified a metal façade that would not only enhance security, but also provide a minimum 75% natural air-flow to help the building breathe without the need for mechanical ventilation. This was a vital consideration due to exhaust fumes in the car park.

Loft F5.04 in Prague, Czech Republic by Klára Valová / SMLXL studio

When the chance to buy an apartment in the former factory ETA Regula arose for its prospective owners, they did not hesitate for a minute. After a long search of an apartment offering both interesting and atypical elements, and located in central Prague, this proved to be an ideal choice. Time management was perfect, and the arrangement with the developer was that the apartment would be made over as shell and core, meeting only the most basic approval standards. The owners also addressed our studio ahead of time, providing us with enough time to think about the project in detail. As soon as the owners were handed the keys to the apartment, we were ready to begin with the change

Emardental Clinic in Majorca, Spain by OHLAB / oliver hernaiz architecture lab

This project for Emardental Clinic plays with the dialogue of two types of environments that reflect the values of the clinic.

On the one hand, the public area: waiting room, reception and transit areas. A warm, welcoming and winding space with an oak finish of soft tones and curved lines; a space that intuitively guides the patient into the circulation and accompanies him while waiting; a smooth and soft lighting filtered through wooden slats.

Two bedroom loft apartment with central staircase and two bathrooms.

Create a colorful interior was the criteria set out from client for the architect. Large glass windows are dominant for the space and that was determining for the choice of the colors. Blue as a sky and yellow as a sun. You can see these colors vary in the apartment in all their range from their subdued version in the entrance lobby to the darker blue in the bedroom referring to the evening sky and the dark red for the sun as it meets the horizon.

Stella Maris Chapel in Canary Islands, Spain by Beautell architect

Article source:  Beautell architect 

For years, the neighbors of the fishermen village of El Pris had tried to promote the construction of a proper temple, under the vocation of the Virgen del Carmen (Our Lady of Mount Carmel) who is patroness of the sailors. Despite designating for it several different locations, this construction for various reasons was not possible. The image of the Virgin, for which the neighbors are strongly devoted, was stored in a warehouse belonging to a fishermen association, waiting to be placed in a sacred space.

Otazu Wine Cellars in Navarra, Spain by James & Mau

 
March 15th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: James & Mau 

The design of the cellars reflects the three necessary steps for wine production. The first pavilion is a wooden gable roofed structure which shelters grapes as they are fermented in huge steel shells. A second buried space hosts the barrels in a grid of 3×3 concrete vaults of a great tectonic nature. In this spectacular place time detains both for the purpose of wine maturation as well as for a spectator who finds himself in these surroundings. Given that the space is buried, a constant temperature is achieved without need for inputs of heat or cold. Finally, the third pavilion is identical to the first one, it is the home to the last process of the wine production. Here, the bottling and storing of the wine takes place before bringing it to the surface again for its eventual distribution.
