Identity Works in Stockholm, Sweden by Elding Oscarson

 
February 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Elding Oscarson

The independent branding agency Identity Works is housed in one of Stockholms most iconic commercial buildings from the Swedish Grace era, designed by Cyrillus Johansson. When expanding within the building Elding Oscarson were given the opportunity to thoroughly look into the agency’s workflow in relation to the disposition of spaces. Within a tight framework of standard requirements, a project tailored for the client regarding openness, transparency, communication, and creative flow, could be crafted. The envisioned creative atelier, however with the need of many enclosed rooms, resulted in a layout where enclosed spaces are arranged to form a series of interconnected open spaces. Like buildings, towards a square, these volumes have been given facades with large windows providing light and transparency. Their contrasting cladding of clear lacquered MDF shelving, highlights the spatial organization while functioning as an ever-changing mood board.

A Tail of The Hill

The building has such unique program and location. This facility is served as a place where the park janitors rest, wash and store cleaning tools at the same time. Boramae Park has small and large hills within the park. The site is located at the endpoint of one of those hills. The fan shaped area, which is about two-thirds of the site, is in contact with the road and the rest one-third touches the end of the hill. In fact, the site is in-between the last tail of the hill and the road. With the site given, the park required a shelter for the janitors and the storage for the equipment.

How can you make a motorway section attractive and functional for the local residents? This is the question MoederscheimMoonen Architects set to work on for the Municipality of Schiedam. They devised a unique solution for a stretch of the A4 motorway between the Dutch cities of Delft and Schiedam. The result is wonderful green park and a new sports location that will definitely appeal to the imagination. Located some six metres above the motorway, the sports fields are enclosed by one of the largest canvases in Europe. Together with Lace Fence, the architects created no less than 8,500 m² of colourful fencing that consists of over 1.6 million life-like ‘pixels’.

EPILPSY RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME in Dommartin-lès-Toul, France by ATELIER MARTEL

 
February 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ATELIER MARTEL

The site is located between pastures and activity areas in the semi-urban fringe located at the outskirts of the small town of Dommartin-lès-Toul. It extends on a gentle slope in front of the parking of the former American hospital and opens up to the panorama of the Moselle valley.

The value system based on which historical cities have been built has been substituted by the logic of traffic flow and lower cost. And even if it is unable to produce any urban quality, the so called “activity area” continues to be, most of the time, the place of work of contemporary architects, as it is where the cities expand and develop. At the same time, these unrestrained city fringes represent a source of imagination for the architects, a comparator, a particular landscape, extremely contemporary, hence fascinating, and therefore; able to convey emotions and memories.

13 SELF-CONSTRUCTED HOMES in Palenciana, Spain by elisavalero arquitectura

 
February 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: elisavalero arquitectura

The architecture belongs to the place, which conditions it and makes it singular. The urban layout and topography, and its ensuing definition as an observation space, as well as its insertion in the landscape, the lighting conditions and the use of materials are at the root of an idea that has materialized here in a way that continues popular Andalusian traditions—white houses in a white village.

Club Mascara in Sofia, Bulgaria by studio MODE

 
February 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: studio MODE 

This is a story of the missing chapter of Alice in Wonderland. A story about finding out how deep the rabbit hole goes… Everyone is the actor and the spectator. DJ is the director. MODE is the composer. MASCARA is the grand scene. Club MASCARA is an emblematic spot in the history of night life in Sofia. Situated in the Underground level of the National Opera and Ballet. We were inspired by the idea of the opera, as an art – the decors, the scene, the costumes. We created a scene for the night life. We were back to the basic perception of black and white, as in the book of Alice.
