BARIN SKI RESORT in Tehran, Iran by RYRA Studio

This ten-storey resort is located near Shemshak ski resort, the second largest ski resort in Iran and in only half an hour drive from the capital. In 2008, client requested architects to redesign a ski resort, a cozy and warm place for young people to relax in after skiing out in extremely cold weather. When the architects were brought on board to design the project, the base build had already been completed .The main structure and ceiling had been built in a classic cube shape, but the architects felt the rectangular shape was alien to the naturally sloping mountain formation.

“Fun-ctional box” Duplex Apartment in Telaviv, Israel by The K.O.T Project Architects and planners

Article source: The K.O.T Project Architects and planners 

What happens at the junction of a design rich aesthetic from the 50s through the 70s and the “cleanliness” of current design? When  minimalist utilitarian carpentry meets crafted objects and Oriental inspiration? What sparks when urbanity and nature loving coalesced? This intersection of worlds is found in the newly designed  Nahalat Yitzhak apartment in Tel Aviv.

An der Achalm in Reutlingen, Germany by Alexander Brenner Architekten

 
June 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alexander Brenner Architekten

The location on a steep south-facing slope required an access to the house from the public road running below to the site situated about 12 metres higher. These conditions inspired the idea of embedding a mountain pass road into the site, which serves both as a drive and a footpath.

House in Ramat Gan, Israel by Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design

 
June 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design 

In the cube-shaped family home there is a striking interplay between open and closed spaces, the private and public domain, and light and darkness. The origin of this harmonious duality lies in the starting point of the planning process – the cube. Structurally, the cube is closed and confined; but when fused with other cubes, a new, dynamic shape emerges.

Bake Darling is a new franchise concept in Mexico focused on selling all kinds of pastry-related products, the variety of articles they handle , their forms and uses forced us to create a design concept in which they could be arranged in a more efficient and orderly manner, being that the display space was very scarce. Hidden forms, wooden elements and light draw attention to onlookers and customers alike attracting many kinds people into the store, almost no one leaves without buying a guilty pleasure or two.

VILLA LIVING WOOD by StudioArch

 
June 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: StudioArch

This is a concept commisioned us by a firm prefabricated wood houses for its “houses catalog”. How can we design an house without knowing where? Where is the best view? Where is going the sun ? we alaways hated the “catalog house” as such but, in any case, we’ve try to solve the problem. The traditional house programm, living and sleeping area distinct and separated on different floors, was conceptualized by making truly independent the two functional areas that in effect have different priorities. The living area should be alaways facing to the best view while the bedroom’s floor , upstairs, may also look beyond the usual conventional views, provided the roof are always facing south to capture maximum solar energy. Obviously the house is not moving, we have simply created a concept model that provides different possible configurations / versions as result of the interaction with the environment. Each location/environment creates a different version, unique and integrated into the landscape because it’s this context that generated it. At the same time, each version was made by “choices” of future users. From very traditional aesthetic to extremly modern not necessarily following the orientation rules. So the result, the house also represent the personality of those who will inhabit. The context, of which even people are part, is, in any case, the input to shape this house.
