The Customer Information Centre and Event Forum PANEUM – Wunderkammer des Brotes – for the company Backaldrin in Asten consists of two elements: a box shaped plinth building with foyer and event rooms plus the “Wunderkammer des Brotes”, a two storey freeform exhibition area floating on top. The chosen materials augment the contrast of these two elements: The square base building shows a cast-in-place concrete façade while the rounded wood structure of the museum is clad with stainless steel shingles.

ADHOC architects team is proud to present the recently completed project “La Géode”, carried out in cooperation with the young promoters of Knightsbridge. The project is located on “de la Roche” Street, in the neighbourhood of Le Plateau Mont-Royal, a vibrant district with an exceptional urban vitality. In the light of its situation, the project aims to give a new breath to its plot with a contemporary residential building of five housing units. It should intend to reflect all the energy of this strategic sector where young professionals mix with families and couples. Thus, the project has to be a soft densification that fits into the current urban landscape without distorting it. One of the concerns is to keep families in the city by creating a quality living environment based on a green strategy.

Creating Place with Art in Toronto, Canada by II BY IV DESIGN

 
November 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Creating a sense of place, art can bolster an interior by enhancing its overall atmosphere. Art can arouse one’s curiosity and draw you in. And experienced in relation to its setting, it can positively affect your mood. Art can also set the tone for a theme, thereby shaping one’s impression of a space.

Art requires an audience to make it complete. With its natural ability to slow one’s progression through space and encourage interactions, art often promotes community connectivity. In a study by the Knight’s Foundation that surveyed 43,000 people, it was found that aesthetics of a place is indeed linked to one’s attachment to their community.
