Dig in the sky in Osaka, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.,Ltd.

Digging a hole in the sky

At the center of Osaka, We designed a residence that is composed of three buildings sandwiching two courtyards, so as to bring light  to a narrow site surrounded by neighboring houses on three sides. As each building will hold one-room-sized space on each floor, we decided to connect rooms with tube-shaped corridor and staircase that cross the courtyards. Every room is not divided by doors, but instead is linked by long stretching-shaped entrances. They are loosely connected, but are able to gain appropriate sense of distance for habitation.

From The Wall Street Journal to Elle, and Architectural Digest to The Lonely Planet city guide; Groos has been named as a leading example for promoting contemporary goings-on in the world of design, art, food and culture in Rotterdam. The one-of-a-kind 300m2 concept store is also heading in a different direction focusing more on high-end design, art, and collaborations with a range of creatives, yet still staying true to its original concept: to promote local talent from Rotterdam to a wide audience. The store’s distinct bright pink wall displays original artworks, and its custom-made mint green candy counter is designed by Sabine Marcelis.

Zarid House in Cádiz, Spain by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Located on the beach of Cabo de Plata, known as the Beach of the Germans on the Andalusian coast of Tarifa, there is an uneven place with a horizontal view over the Atlantic Ocean.

To optimize the vision of the landscape, a series of slender spaces are intertwined as they adapt to the descending topography. Each of these pieces is deposited half a floor below the previous one. This way, its alternating arrangement allows all the spaces to have a direct view over the beach.
