Generator Rome in Rome, Italy by DesignAgency

 
January 5th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DesignAgency

Generator Rome is only a short walk from the Colosseum and Termini Station, in the Esquilino neighbourhood – one of the oldest areas in the city. The property reinvigorates an elegant 20th century residence on Via Principe Amedeo. Its surroundings include cinematic streetscapes, leading to picturesque squares, churches, parks and a vast array of bars, cafés and pizzerias, as well as authentic local markets.

DesignAgency took its inspiration from the distinctive flavours of this diverse and historic neighbourhood, as well as the Italian culture and the Roman trade routes that have left their marks on this area to create a vibrant and welcoming environment with subtle ethnic flair.

A Studio in Bassano del Grappa, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

 
January 5th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin 

The studio was designed starting from the conviction that the rooms were to be designed as boxes, composed in turn by sides and surfaces, evocative from a figurative point of view. Two coloured backdrops were in fact made with shades of blue and sage green, on the other side a wall-moodboard with the notes and suggestions of the projects which are work in process. The presence of the old stone portal was resolved by keeping the traces of the old paint, as opposed to the perfection of the bottom of the wall.The old Venetian floorings and the geometric fishbone pattern of the wooden parquet were preserved and enhanced.The furniture arrangement was designed keeping in mind the functional distances and movements in the studio, with a division between the functional and the more operative spaces and the formal  reception rooms.

Walking down a street off Kawahara-Gojo in Kyoto, you will find an old Japanese-style house. The house is over a hundred years old, built in the Meiji era. Giyōfū architecture was the method the master-carpenter applied, copying Western architecture but using Japanese traditional wooden techniques. After being used as print shop and furniture store over the decades, the house was renovated to a co-working space called “MATERIAL KYOTO”.

Shenzhen Airport Satellite Concourse and Hong Kong International Airport in China by Aedas

Reinforcing Aedas’ strength in the infrastructure sector, two international competition wins to design the Shenzhen Airport Satellite Concourse and Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Third Runway Passenger Building demonstrate Aedas’ growing influence in providing innovative aviation solutions.

As an international team consisting of GDAD as the local design institute/terminal planners, Landrum & Brown as aviation planners, and Aedas as Lead Design Architect, we have been awarded the design and construction of the new Shenzhen Airport Satellite Concourse in China. Passengers arrive in the heart of the Concourse from the Auto People Mover (APM) station which allows light filled views up to the roof over. The multi-level retail and food & beverage areas provide a rich variety of environments and areas for passengers, guiding them intuitively towards the departure gates. The roof form over, inspired by the gently curving rivers of the region, further reinforces the flow of the passengers through the Concourse. Arriving passengers are orientated to the perimeter of the building allowing them to experience natural diffused daylight as they move toward the APM and onwards to the main terminal.

VICE Toronto in Canada by DesignAgency

Article source: DesignAgency

When VICE Media — the world’s preeminent youth media company— needed a new Toronto bureau — having expanded from 50 to over 150 people in over a year— they engaged DesignAgency because the two companies share a common core: both are cross disciplinary, collaborative and creative. VICE asked for a space that reflects their strong brand, and exudes the youthful energy that they are famous for. Attuned to the needs of its client, DesignAgency infused a decommissioned factory with the informal, relaxed vibe of a classic cigar lounge, then stealthily layered technology, lighting and sound equipment throughout. The results are instrumental for the VICE team to produce their multi-platform content, while allowing the open-plan space to play triple duty as a day-to-day working environment, a film and recording set and a showpiece that speaks to the personality and values of the company.

Article source: BUREAU A

THE CLUB is an installation by BUREAU A for the Lisbon Triennale 2016.

Conceived as an architecture dedicated to sound experience, it is a noise cabin hosting people for a dense dancing event. This travelling sound system, in the Jamaican tradition, adapts to a diversity of situations and generates, through its architectural presence, a particular relation to the context where it stands. It is composed of loudspeakers, a DJ booth, a bar and an entrance. In its smaller configuration, it creates a perfect micro dancefloor for about 25 people, entirely enclosed buy the sound architecture.

Design a house in a residential housing area.

In Bucheon, a suburb of Seoul, there is an area called GgaChiWool. This area, which is also known for a residential housing district, has been continuously expanding. When first visited the site, housing development was already over, and new houses were almost filling the complex. The low-rise houses, the quiet footpaths, and roads to the private gardens brought great attraction of the site. However, most of the houses already built were houses that did not deviate much from the general category of multi-family houses.

“With Hyperloop One we have given form to a mobility ecosystem of pods and portals, where the waiting hall has vanished along with waiting itself. Hyperloop One combines collective commuting with individual freedom at near supersonic speed. We are heading for a future where our mental map of the city is completely reconfigured, as our habitual understanding of distance and proximity – time and space – is warped by this virgin form of travel.” Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG.
