Article source: Oh!Land studio 

Contemporary problems need contemporary solutions. The challenge brought forth by this project is one of them. To overcome today’s disarticulated urban expansion that discourages natural resources and urban life, a proper discussion between members of a multi-disciplinary team is essential. For this reason this group of young designers came together in the attempt to create innovative designs that integrate natural and artificial elements into complete, multi-functional and sustainable urban systems that promote quality urban lifestyles in overall harmonic landscapes.

Fouquet’s Barriere hotel in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

 
December 3rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Maison Edouard François

A set of seven buildings including real and pastiche Haussmannian styles, as well as a building dating from the 1970’s, formed a nearly complete urban block in the Triangle d’or (the corner of the Champs-Elysées and the Avenue Georges V). The restaurant Le Fouquet’s is the flagship property of the Barrière company. The goal was to unify these disparate elements and to make it the next parisian “Palace”, thus establishing a strong new image.

STOCK Share Office in Tokyo, Japan by OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

 
December 3rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

This is a project to convert a building that was originally a rental warehouse into a share office.
The existing building had a 5-story container architecture style. Due to the characteristics of the container warehouse, the space had low ceilings with no windows, and was surrounded by metal. This gave it a very inorganic feeling.The first thing we did was to establish a large aperture with the wooden sash facing the street.Then we planted an over 12meterhigh sequoia as a symbol tree, since this property exists in the middle of the hill and had no landmark. Because the depth of a shrubbery was only 1800mm, we made the root bowl as small as possible, and installed the tree at the top of the hill. As for the rest of the plants, we leveled their heights to the sequoia, and selected their leaf colors so that they are deeper towards the back.The entrance door is made out of a 10 year-old marine container.It has an important role to show when the office is open or closed.
