Barbarella house in Yongin, South Korea by KDDH

Article source: KDDH

It seems that creating revenue by building a house becomes a trend. It can be seen that building a house with the maximum floor-area ratio and building coverage ratio within the legal limit is a wise way to build a house. A house irrelevant seemingly was placed at the Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do. Although the house is relatively smaller than other neighboring big multi-household houses, the shape of stably standing shoulder to shoulder with them is impressive. The architect hopes this house born by the desire of the client who wanted not to build a house with maximum values, but to build a house for life to become a fresh message to the gray city.

Stage of forest in Jilin, China by META-Project

February 28th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: META-Project

Stage of Forest,located at Songhua Lake Resort in Ji Lin,is situated on a hillside between the forest and the slope. The site is surrounded by luscious greenery in summer and covered by an overwhelming white snow in winter. As is a delicate site for a “Land(scape) Mark”, one whose indefinite programming demands a careful degree of deliberation. The location and triangle shape of the “stage” was only determined after precise examination and deduction of the site condition, to minimize the impact for the existing vegetation and to maximize the view on the platform. While sitting on the hill, it is facing the Songhua lake at a distance, who is famous for the rime in its surrounding areas.

Duomo Suite & Spa in Catania, Italy by SCANNELLA ARCHITECTS

February 28th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal


It is a building in the Baroque center of Catania, redesigned as hotel which tells Sicily cinematographically. The original core, dating back to the ‘500, was rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake afterwards it was subjected to several changes, the last one date back to the post war period, has changed the intended use until the final one known as hotel. This has been possible to read through the works of restructuring that showed the various layers. The works have tried to bring back to life the original structure while maintaining or reviving the system of vertical connections. The concept wants to communicate an image of Sicily especially told through the suggestions from cinema. To make it possible, representative icons have been used and even decorative apparatus, the quotes, the lighting design, using a contemporary architectural language dedicating to each space a cinematographic work. The work has required a careful research of the significant elements of the “story” told, without neglecting to re-use some original elements of the building, reinventing use and function. Each room is characterized by objects, shapes and colors taken from the movie to which is dedicated in order to allow the customer to soak into the atmosphere that we want to tell. Particular attention was dedicated to the relationship between the plant system and the environments, aiming to its complete integration, reaching almost the invisibility. The charm of the interior benefits of the “popular” atmosphere that represents an extraordinary urban landscape. Eleven Rooms were obtained, some of which are configured as suites, dedicated to a particular director and a small Spa.
