Located in the heart of Old Montreal and docked at the Port of the Saint-Lawrence River, BotaBota spa, is a major tourist attraction. The port context is rich in history and has a unique character in Montreal. The site is surrounded by water, vegetation and the massive grain silos 5. MU Architecture was commissioned to design an oasis of relaxation in this exceptional place, a little heaven in the heart of the city.  It is between the boat-spa, the river and the elevated railway that BotaBota Gardens take shape.

The Clinic – by International Rehabilitation Specialists. The first of its kind in Shanghai, The Clinic, is a wellness, and rehabilitation center focusing on each person’s individual needs. The design aims to create an interior that overturns ones idea of the “sterile white walled” hospital environment. Raw materials of concrete, rustic wood, textured glass and industrial lighting have been used to create an intimate boutique style to the common spaces and treatment rooms. The minimalistic and natural finishes give suggestion to a spa interior to instill a feeling of relaxation and healing.

Silver House in Zante Island, Greece by DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

 
September 23rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Kefallinia. Cephalonia. The island was even described by Homer in ancient times. Its backbone culminates in a peak 1,628m high, in the midst of the Ionian Sea. Seen from the mainland, it surges out of the blue depths in an intense light, often coiffed with a veil of clouds. So when the opportunity arose to build a house facing this spectacle, the choice was obvious. The subject would of course be the island, framed by the house. From the initial sketches until its completion, the plans were developed around the view. From the terraces, the sitting room, the dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, the living space was oriented towards this fascinating seascape, which the architecture emphasises, making it even more theatrical.

Guesthouse Berge in Aschau im Chiemgau, Germany by Nils Holger Moormann GmbH

 
September 23rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Nils Holger Moormann GmbH 

The guesthouse berge is nestled in Aschau in Chiemgau, at the foot of the Kampenwand mountain and holds a unique charm. Those, who move into their quarters in berge, shouldn’t expect excessive luxury – but rather an inviting ambiance, natural materials, real art and a lot of attention to Detail. Almost all of the apartments are equipped with a small, but smart kitchen, which entices guests to don an apron. Because there’s no restaurant in berge.
