To ensure design excellence, Lyme Properties—original developer, which then sold to BioMed Realty—sponsored an invited, international design competition for the 1.3-million-square-foot Kendall Square mixed-use project in Cambridge, MA. The objective was to create a cluster of high-caliber laboratory buildings to position Kendall Square as a major research center strategically located in close proximity to MIT and Harvard. In addition to providing new laboratories, the developer wanted to animate the neighborhood street life by offering urban amenities including a hotel, housing, shops, restaurants, and open public space.

Apartment with Partitions in São Paulo, Brazil by Casa100 Arquitetura

Article source: Casa100 Arquitetura

The first request made by the resident of this apartment, was to have a minimalist environment, with references to Scandinavian architecture. She did not want many colors and not much information in the apartment. Architecture should speak for itself. The apartment originally had 2 bedrooms, and two bathrooms. With the changes made in the project, the master suite got bigger, and where the 2nd bedroom was, it turned into a large closet, which is a kind of entrance hall of the suite, and where the restroom is located. In the bathroom the idea was to join the 2 shower cabins turning into just one larger, for the suite, since the smaller one now turned into a restroom. The open kitchen to the living room has received a support counter which also serves as a dining space for 2 people. The air conditioning machine on the terrace was hidden by a perforated metal plate, and on it, the wooden shelf receives some plants for everyday uses. To maintain clarity throughout the apartment, and not visually diminish the room, the division between social and intimate wing was done with a dotted glass, allowing the good use of the natural light but also maintaining the privacy of the enclosed environment. The materials follow a more sober line, so we have plenty of white, wood in American oak leaves, and copper tubes that are shelf structures in the kitchen, living room and bedroom.

The new lunch room of \”Ex-GIL\” in Bolzano, Italy by ROLAND BALDI ARCHITEKT

The project is located within the headquarter of Eurac Research Center on Druso Avenue in Bozen, known as “ex-GIL”. The structure was designed by architects Mansutti and Miozzo, and was constructed in the years 1934 to 1936 in order to accommodate youth females enrolled in GIL (Gioventù Italiana del Littorio). Following the war, the building, renamed “Ex-GIL”, was used for different purposes, from supermarket to pornographic cinema, and was abandoned over time to a slow degradation. In 1995 an international architectural competition for the transformation of the ensemble into the new headquarters for Eurac Research was announced. The jury decided unanimously for the design of Graz-based architect Klaus Kada, who integrated the building which is under the protection of cultural assets with modern rational and transparent glass intersections.

The Arne Haugen Sørensen Museum is now officially open. An inviting pavilion in close connection to the surrounding nature. The building is an extension to Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon in Videbæk, Denmark.

A donation of 70 works of art from the Danish artist Arne Haugen Sørensen made it possible for Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon to expand the Kunstpavillon with further 400 m2 in connection to the existing pavillon. Having designed the first building, we re-established the collaboration with the museum and designed an extension that brings new life into the architecture while maintaining the original atmosphere and poetry.

It was a focal point in the design of the extension to continue the architectural vision from the first building to create a cohesion and one unity.

Les Trois Cochons in Copenhagen, Denmark by København Møbelsnedkeri

Værnedamsvej must be the hippest street in Copenhagen and a very lively street. Linking together two neighborhoods; Vesterbro and Frederiksberg, and with a traffic chaos that have become a part of the charm. In the past known as “The Butchers’ Street” (due to the large number of butchers on the street) but today people go there to eat breakfast, shop and in the evening, dine and drink wine. This building was too a formally butcher’s shop called “Slagter Ryholt” (1907-1999). We have kept some of the atmosphere with the vintage green tiles on the walls, and we still welcome our guests with the custom mosaic tiles and checkerboard showcasing the butchers name “Ryholt”. The French School are placed in the middle of the street and because of that, and the fact that all the cafés, delis and restaurants have a French atmosphere, the street is also known as “Little Paris”. Some of the materials such as the beautiful white Carrara marble tops for the bar, bread station and window seats, together with dark fumed oak tabletops and raw steel along with brass, we combine the classic bistro feel from Paris with excellent craftmanship. KBH Snedkeri is a local company committed to the craft of making handmade furniture. We combine the historic elements in the building with new, long lasting furniture that already had a story to tell, the moment they arrived. Everything is custom made and amazingly looks like it has been there forever. This is what the spirit of Copenhagen is to us.
