Andronikos Hotel in Santorini, Greece by KLab architecture

 
September 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KLab architecture

After a successful collaboration for Andronikos hotel in Mykonos, KLab architecture and Andronikos hotels joined forces again for a new hotel in Santorini. A large house from the 70’s, located in Imerovigli Santorini, of three floors was rethought as 6 suites hotel. Above the volcano caldera and the famous rock “skaros” KLab architecture changed throughout the existing building to accommodate the needs of the new hotel. 6 large suites and a sky bar on the terrace were conceived as a modern interpretation of the cave like vernacular houses of Santorini. New vaults and arches and curvaceous edges recreate the unique aura of traditional houses.

Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to refurbish, including interior architecture, interior design and project manage a 2209 square foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom duplex apartment on the second and third floors of The Bromptons. The brief was to transform the existing apartment into a secondary residence for the client. Marrying the exquisite architectural detail with the interior architecture of the apartment, we ensured it was up to date in terms of technology, whilst clearly reflecting the personality of the client in order to create a space that felt unequivocally like a home away from home.

KAPKAR/ SF-P7S in Lent, Netherlands by Studio Frank Havermans

 
September 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Frank Havermans

This pavilion KAPKAR.SF-P7S is designed and built for a temporary Building Lab (BOUWLAB) organised by Stichting Fabrikaat. This foundation, based in the city of Nijmegen in the east of the Netherlands is specialised in organizing temporary place making projects. This summer they erected a small settlement along the new shaped river bank on the north side of the city to focus on alternative ways of building and living in a more self organised way and show it to a broader public. This client asked me to design a low budget pavilion meant to program discussions, forums, meetings, small scale exhibitions, lectures and other cultural events during the period of BOUWLAB. Specific wishes were that the pavilion should have a striking appearance, be demountable and transportable to their future location, project ‘GRID” in Nijmegen, that it would provide space for 50 people, and that enough daylight would enter the building. Another wish was that I should collaborate with a MCT, a new company that developed a clever building system called KNØP.

Complete refurbishment of this duplex in the center of Marseille by the french studio T3 Architecture. The existing flat suffered from a significant lack of light and its main rooms were constrained by the central staircase.

The architects completely released the heart of the apartment by removing the stairs and most of the partitions. The entrance of the flat now enjoys a generous double height volume that offers a visual communication between the different spaces of the two storeys.

Designed in 1970 by the acclaimed Turkish architect Professor Nezih Eldem, the apartment building is situated amidst the Sultan Ayse Woods in the much sought after district of Bebek.

A clear representative of its era, every apartment has been placed on different elevations on each and every floor. Hence creating a considerably spacious environment whilst preserving an affinity with the human scale.
