Article source: Paul de Ruiter Architects 

In the first energy-neutral district of Amsterdam, the Houthavens, we designed the 4th Gymnasium. An energy-neutral secondary school that accommodates about 800 students. The school functions as the entrance of the new district. The Houthavens had an industrial role for years and will transform into a vibrant district with several islands in the upcoming years. A great variety of buildings and residents will take their place here. The 4th Gymnasium serves as a herald for the further developments of this area.

Article source: Keivani Architects

The project is located in one of the apartment block of residential complex. during the design, we considered two essential factors to develop the concept of Mehr Khaneh interior design. The first factor is the client’s interests in the Persian civilization, culture, and values, namely the metaphors of Mithraism and sun. The second factor is the artistic character of the client, which had to be reflected in design.

Da Chang Muslim Cultural Center in Hebei Province, China by Architectural Design & Research Institute of Scut

Cultural architectures have always been academician He Jingtang’s “specialty”.

Project Dachang National Palace is no doubt his another masterpiece. Located in Dachang Hui Autonomous County, Langfang, Hebei province, the project is supposed by the local government to be an iconic design, introducing Dachang’s particular culture and enhancing the soft power of the city. The national palace is thus endowed with multiple functions, serving not only as the recreation center of the city, but the essential cultural site for the introduction of local religion and history as well. It has undoubtedly brought lots of challenges to the designer, because of the special ethnic composition, historical context, religious belief, complex functional requirements of the site and the setting of a cultural landmark.

THE BOSTON BUTT in Mumbai, India by ARK / Reza Kabul Architects

 
October 29th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ARK / Reza Kabul Architects

Located in the historic Kala Ghoda district of South Mumbai, The Boston Butt is an all American barbeque diner with a southern soul. For the decor, chef and restaurateur Siddharth Kashyap along with his partners Karna Shinde and Nishant Rao, approached Ar. Reza Kabul who created a confluence of regional styles from the Dixie States into the design. The interior walls of the two-level restaurant set the backdrop for the space in a grungy plastered texture. Photographs, signage and mirror frames from the Prohibition Era accent the bare walls. The bevelled window panes are a manifestation of the late 18th century architecture of the French Quarters in New Orleans. Influenced by the predominant lumber industry in the Southern American States, the use of wood dominates the interior elements of the space such as flooring, seating and accessories. The lower level is designed to host families with its wooden dinner tables and seating, while the upper level hosts the livelier section with the bar and plaid wrapped corner couches. A bright red tractor hood not only adds color to the space but also doubles up as the DJ console. The wall mounted papier-mâché busts of a ram, deer, and boar create a focal point at the upper level. All in all The Boston Butt, the city’s first smokery and charcuterie, aims at delivering the finest food and ambience of the Dixie states!
