DIVINATIO in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Liong Lie Architects

 
May 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Liong Lie Architects

Fish restaurant Divinatio is located at the historical harbor of Utrecht, The Netherlands. The objective was to realize a restaurant with a maritime feel for the upper segment of the market. The building is designed to be functional. The contrasts – rough on the outside and smooth on the inside – have been translated in the design. The interior has to appeal to a broad and contemporary group, without discouraging the more traditional public. The visibility lines create oversight and views and the niches create a feeling of intimacy. When choosing the materials, Liong Lie (the architect) took both the visual as tangible effects into account. Leather, blue glass and Corian® have been used in the design. The open kitchen is framed in white Corian® and has a dark back wall which creates the illusion of cooks standing in a theatre. The walls have been covered with an acoustic clay plaster that has a mother of pearl effect which shimmers in the sunlight. The ceiling is made out of tufted leather panels to improve the acoustics. The chandelier appears to be rotating by the computerized lighting that increases and decreases in strength. A reference to a light house. At night the curiosity of the passerby is raised by the big illuminated glass bay window.

Rakafot school grounds in Kiryat Bialik, Israel by BO LANDSCAPE

About two weeks after construction was complete on the Rakafot School, for which we were the landscape architects, and the opening of the school year, we received a surprising phone call: “I wanted your opinion on adding frogs to the school’s ‘Winter Pond.’ It was the agriculture teacher “We received complaints about mosquitoes, and it seems to be the right way to stop them is by using frogs. Besides, it will be wonderful to hear their croaks along with the children’s loud and cheerful voices.” “It’s a great idea,” we hastened to assure her, with a fantastic inner feeling, “yes, that works.”

The building is located within a manufacturing plant, in that context; it situates a testing laboratory and an exhibition space.

The design seeks to establish an emphasis between the new construction and the existing facilities. The result is a solid and sleek object that distinguishes from its spatial context by the use of a dynamic geometry.

50 Housing units in Limeil-Brevannes, France by BRUTHER

 
May 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BRUTHER

The problem in the understanding of in-habitation is that it is perceived as purely utilitarian. Perceiving it as such, is to deny it of all the structural aspects it has on one’s perception and thus on one’s way of thinking. In redefining the habitat and in admitting its competitive part, one realizes that it is closely related to aesthetics. In that sense, inhabiting would contain an essential aesthetic approach. However, the question is how one can think habitation beyond its purely functional use, and instead seeing it as contemplative and thus as aesthetic? Wouldn’t it be denying its primary function of shelter and protection? In what way could inhabiting and dwelling, as a retreat from the world, be a space for reflection and contemplation of the exterior, and even be understood as privileged space?
