The Dovecote-Granary in Ponte de Lima, Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

The Dovecote-Granary is a place of serenity and introspection, where one can establish a strong connection with both nature and oneself. Without a conventional function the space is its own purpose: a treehouse-temple of sorts.

Grid Apartment in Rome, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

The renovation of this bright apartment located in the Prati district of Rome represents a perfect blend between the customer needs and the design intentions: in fact, even though it is 80 square meters, it was designed by favoring a displacement of the spaces in favor of a large openspace, environment most lived by homeowners, and reducing to the maximum, but always in line with urban parameters, the sleeping area and the bathrooms. Contextual to a wide architectural requirement, there was a desire to separate the kitchen environment from the living room through a glazed system divided by a regular square mesh grille and with a very industrial aspect: it was made into galvanized iron profiles with micaceous finishing and artisanally assembled on site and completed with stratified glazing. The mood of the apartment prefers the total white combined with the warm tones of the oak parquet floor. On the theme of the grid also plays the espalier of the bedroom: in drawing the wall there are dense parallel wooden profiles that have also the function as shelves that can be placed at various heights. To exalt the pure formal minimalism, there are wall-wire wardrobes and a very linear and rigorous technical lighting.

Brain Factory in Rome, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

 
February 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Factory – Architecture & Design 

In the design of an architectural firm, conceived primarily as a workshop of ideas, as a testing laboratory, creativity and attention to detail, we can only expect a review of the classic concept of studio. In fact, BrainFactory is a co-working space, but at the same time it is a 130 sqm apartment located in the center of Rome, fully accessible to the customer. The design choices, the furnishings and the installation of high craftsmanship are completely tangible to the visitor, which can interact with the major innovations in the field of design but also with the brands of leading companies in the industry. As a result of a major interior renovation, the planimetric distribution has an entrance marked by birches illuminated by points of light floating between the branches, placing on a background of large satin glazed windows at full height, which in addition to giving daytime natural light, they screen in attractive way the back kitchen. This visual cone, highlighted by cuts of light led carved into poplar panels, put on focus slowly the large open-space around which the environment is articulated: a central calacatta stoneware totem that becomes a distribution element in the living room; wall wire cupboards covered with artificial plants; backlit thin shelves in extruded aluminum and glass that stand over on the wall; invisible doors, custom woodworking and industrial lights from wireframe lines that draw the details. The central-room bathtub with a view over Rome, nestled between two walls covered by plants in the bedroom, reinterprets in a contemporary style an ancient concept of space utilization. Natural poplar, calacatta stoneware and microcement are the guiding principle of the entire study. In order to balance this formal rigor, elements of artificial green have been inserted: birches, bosso, banano to improve the well-being of those who live in the spaces.

Soul Movie Office 2 in Rome, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

In the project designed for the new offices of production services and post audiovisual production of the Soul Movie Entertainment company, the creative concept drawn for the main headquarters and based on a strong urban footprint it is strengthened and brought to life on the floor below through new metropolitan languages. The project follows a policy of continuity not only in the style, in the graphic communication, in the underground recalls, but also in the same architecture that breaks into the other floors of the building. Conceptually it’s as if the meteorite landed on the ground floor has flooded the floor below, drawing three-dimensionally new scenarios! Upon entering the client is accepted from the spaceship’s hull that floats suspended above visitors. The scenario is suburban, characterized by grass cuts at floor level and floating lights suspended at different inclinations, as if they had been moved in a confused way by the conceptual impact of the meteorite.
