GD Goenka in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

 
October 5th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Epistle Communications

Educational Institutions across the globe are designed to facilitate the engagement of the young minds by creating interactive environments that are a blend of study, activity and play areas. In alignment with the same ethos, the GD Goenka group’s philosophy is to reinvent the school experience by creating the best physical infrastructure as per global standards, coupled with high quality, well-paidand motivated faculty. A simple and concise design brief was determined- to have class rooms that are equipped with the neoteric style of teaching and content. Unlike the use of traditional systems such as blackboards etc., novel educations tools take precedent in the contemporary education system; multimedia tools such as projectors, and adequate storage space for children to stack their bags, books, classrooms that are highly flexible to support a variety of formal and informal teaching methods etc. The design of the institutional development of a primary school (from kindergarten to class 5) enables these requirements while aiming to provide flexibility of spaces by making the building form itself as a part of the learning experience.

By transforming a former office in Brussels into a homely loft, Dutch interior and furniture designer Robert Kolenik shows how a spaciously set up industrial apartment can be decorated as a warm, comfortable home.

Thus the rising star among designers, known for his sustainable interiors, adds a new chapter to his portfolio of challenging, high-profile designs. Robert Kolenik garnered international renown when he designed a kitchen counter featuring a large aquarium, and a carport with built-in solar panels for recharging electric cars. He is also responsible for the interior design of various restaurants and hotels, such as the iconic round hotel beside the A2 in Amsterdam.

It’s only fitting that a university building with multiple practices under one roof is employing the use of versatile woven wire mesh, manufactured by Banker Wire.

Banker’s mesh provides strong infill material that also meets the architect’s design intent for exterior stair and pedestrian bridge railings at the new Jacobs Hall on the University of California, Berkeley campus. The three-story, 24,000-square-foot building houses design studios, equipment labs, classrooms, and community space.

Les Horizons in Clichy, France by B+C Architectes

 
October 5th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: B+C Architectes

CONCEPT

The brief required a building with different office configurations and spaces capable of “being transformed” in a minimum timespan and effort.

Each configuration required the building to be able to create “atmospheres” and to “react” with different performances and characteristics, sometimes even contradictory ones. This for its image but also for its thermal, acoustic and even functional qualities.

In the heart of the French countryside and near the town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where Van Gogh painted over 150 of his most well-known works, a London family has created its perfect home-from-home. The detached house and grounds, re-modelled by David Price Design with a new extension, terraces and fun additions – including a boules pitch – feature an interior inspired by the rich colours of the Mediterranean and showcasing a wonderful, eclectic array of furnishings and accessories, variously inherited from previous owners and sourced anew by the home’s new owners via local Provençale markets, Kempton Park Antiques Market in UK and from holidays further afield.

Shenyang CR Land Twenty-Four City – Zen Art in Liaoning Province, China by Li Yizhong Interior Design

 
October 5th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Li Yizhong Interior Design

Zen is a realm of life and also an experience which can equip you for the whole life.

Zen is a mundane meditation, which emphasizes you to master inner peace. “Void” (in Buddhism) reaches the highest realm. Our hearts should not be attached to anything. Since the new realm appears, mind and matter have combined emotion and object into one.

Wood and the Dog in Province of Cuneo, Italy by StudioErrante Architetture

Despite its small dimension, the cabin includes a series of functions which determine its formal solutions.

It’s a shed, where the firewood required by the client’s house heating system is stored. The air passing through the planks of the building’s shell ensures the collected wood to dry.

It’s a shelter, a refuge, a place that provides interaction between the private but open courtyard and the outside public space. A center of gravity around which the life of the clients and the inhabitants of the small hamlet takes place: the niche on the south facade is a special seat for humans an animals.

Simona and Carlo’s Apartment in Varese, Italy by Duearchitetti

They have asked us to rethink the entrance to the house. The direct access to the dining area was preventing the sensation of surprise that every home should have.

A big sliding panel put in front of you, after having passed the entrance staircase, serves a dual purpose: to arouse your curiosity and to oblige your choice of itinerary, that is, walking up the stairs to the bedrooms or entering the living area. A com­pact space has been created in order to reveal in advance the expanded and bright living area of the house.
