La Diana in Barcelona, Spain by RÄS STUDIO

 
July 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: RÄS STUDIO 

La Diana is the exercise of linking visually, volumetrically and functionally two independent and alienated entities: a commercial space on the ground floor and an apartment on the first floor. The architectural strategy was based on drilling the existing slab to create a large enough opening that would activate the relationship in section between the two floors, and in which the stairs are placed.

Backyard House in Queensland, Australia by Joe Adsett Architects

 
July 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Joe Adsett Architects 

The ‘Great Australian Dream’ of owning a quarter acre block with a new house has become a distant memory in inner-city Brisbane, as parcels of land are shaved down repeatedly in a bid to densify the urban centre. Nestled within the urban streets of Teneriffe, a colonial Queenslander presented a charming frontage that concealed the potential for the Architect to utilise the vacant 300m2 backyard to design and build a new family home. The ‘Backyard House’ has been an opportunity to set a precedent for suburban infill development as an alternative to the prevailing trend of building apartments near railway and bus stations.

Yojisan Sushi in Beverly Hills, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

 
July 21st, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Dan Brunn Architecture created a surreal, minimalist space for diners to experience Yojisan Sushi in Beverly Hills, CA, through a narrative of allusion and light. This subtle surrealism begins with the façade, which beckons guests to enter a threshold subdivided by delicately intersecting planes. The transition from city street to refuge—chaos to serenity—is experienced on multiple levels. Instead of relying on restaurant design clichés, the architect elected “to step through the looking glass” with this design, upending ordinary representations of sushi restaurants. The result is a simple yet substantial visual array inspired by traditional Japanese materials, culture, and lifestyle.

Filmax Cinema Hall in L’hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain by AMOO and Arquitecturia Camps Felip

 
July 20th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: AMOO and Arquitecturia Camps Felip

The Filmax Cinemas in Gran Vía, located within the Gran Vía 2 shopping centre, opened their doors 15 years ago, with this business model’s boom, which is based on leisure and mass consumption, and it led to fi lling the urban centres with a multitude of shopping centres, combining shops, restaurants and multi-screen theatres. After this golden age and before the paradigm shift, the client seeks a project to straighten up the cinemas by reducing their dimension, optimising their functioning and offering an experience which goes beyond what happens inside the room.
