At the bottom of the building, a small commerce stands out of the complex and you just can’t lose it out of sight. It’s a space designed for an encounter lapse with the ambiance; by the morning, it´s the perfect spot for watching the neighborhood life. In the afternoon, it becomes a glass cabinet that illuminates the street and turns up in a lively mood with the clients that goes there.

The project is another example of the close collaboration between Foster + Partners and the design team at Apple led by chief design officer, Sir Jonathan Ive and Angela Ahrendts, senior vice president of Retail and Online Stores. Located along the tree-lined avenue, Orchard Road – at the heart of the garden city – the flagship aims to create a new social focus, while working with nature.

Tucked between Spring and Canal in New York City’s recently rezoned Hudson Square, Renwick Street is a rare blip on the vast urban grid: a small, single-block residential enclave, whose self-generated hush recalls the era of a much more intimate Manhattan.

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.
