Il Nido – Gusto e Miscele in Roma, Italy by LPA

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LPA

A garden, a lounge area corner, a tree, a chimney, windows facing onto an interior space that looks like an external one with branches that climb toward the ceiling, a comfortable and cozy place which looks like a nest.

There is not one style that can define it, it is not industrial, not radical chic, neither a trattoria, it does not follow trends, it is just like itself.

Casa Garcias in Cancún, México by Warm Architects

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Warm Architects

Garcias’ House is located on a 273 square meter lot in a fast growing residential area of Cancun. The lot is adjacent in its northern and western sides with other residential lots, while it faces greenery to the east and the street to the south. The strategy for this project was to limit the habitable volume on the western side, in order to make the most of the view, the shadow and incorporate the public greenery with the interior of the house, thru the empty space between them.

Svencelė Kiteboarding and Windsurfing Centre in Klaipėda County, Lithuania by DO architects

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DO architects

The kiteboarding and windsurfing centre in Svencelė transformed a remote kite spot into a major recreational hub in a single summer season. This container city forms just a small part of the major master plan to convert a 30 ha ex-soviet duck farm on the shores of Lithuania’s Curonian Lagoon into a residential and recreational community. The complex was built from 37 portable containers as a means of testing the planned urban structure and accelerating the future development of the area without enormous investments, critical at a time when the world financial crisis led to a lack of optimism about the ambitious projects that had been proposed.

Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, Norway by Snøhetta

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Snøhetta

Snøhetta’s prize-winning design was characterized by the jury as having strongly identifiable themes that tie the building to its culture and place while also presenting an unusual and unique expression that was in many ways new and innovative.

The project developed a highly complex program into a simple general plan that integrated both a practical and intuitive sculptural approach to modeling the exterior form. Its low slung form became a link within the city rather than a divisive sculptural expression. Its accessible roof and broad, open public lobbies make the building a social monument rather than a sculptural one. The building is as much landscape as architecture and thus fosters public awareness and engagement with the arts. Generous windows at street level provide the public a glimpse of the scenery workshop activities. The building still finds an audience with public who are not opera, ballet or orchestra fans. The cafes and gift shop, with their access to the waterfront are destinations which offer opportunities to generate revenue for the institution while providing a general public amenity. Care was taken with the design of these components so that they are seamlessly integrated into the overall character of the building’s bold design.

Estado Puro in Madrid, Spain by James & Mau

Paco Roncero´s sensitivity towards the new Spanish cuisine was the starting point for James & Mau in their search of a concept that would reinterpret the typical Spanish image, uniting tradition with innovation while cleverly avoiding kitsch or fashion botox. The objective was to allow both Spanish and tourists to identify themselves to the Spanish culture in a modern, sophisticated and fun way.
