Within the new station hall an undulating ‘vault’, which has been designed to evoke an “unforgettable arrival experience”, features a scaled 1877 map of the Dutch city rendered in blue and white. Columns wrapped in a mosaic of Delft-blue titles, also reminiscent of the colours of Delftware, one of the city’s most famous global exports. This project is having a massive press coverage around Holland and is turning into a tourist attraction as well.

The Bazaar in Beverwijk, The Netherlands, the biggest indoor market of Europe, is our client. The Goud souk (“Gold souk”) will be the new building for the gold dealers and goldsmiths, who now gather each week-end along the Goudstraat (“Goldstreet”) at the Eastern Market of the Bazaar.

The exterior is defined by a 35 meter long facade that explains the visitors in a glance what they can find here: all that glitters is gold! The entrance is clearly marked. Here, the ‘nugget of gold’ has opened up to provide access to the ‘cave’ where the real golden treasures are safely displayed.

A new house has put down its roots in Turin. Its structure is in steel and it looks like a forest where trees are rooted in terraces with irregular shapes, ponds  are crossed by footings and lush gardens cover the roofs. The building has been thought as a living forest, a house on the trees like the houses children dream of and sometimes build.

DENTAL PRAXIS in Timisoara, Romania by Parasite Studio

 
March 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Parasite Studio

The project of DENTAL PRAXIS dental clinic was devised on an open construction field in a neat rectangular urban tissue placed in a residential area close to the city suburbs. The idea of the project came along with setting the location – a “carious” field – in the urban tissue mentioned above, hence having a chamfered side. The idea was to functionally reconfigure this lot, starting from requirements set by the dental medical functions. As a rule, the dental act specializes in characteristic and distinctive cases, each activity focusing on an individual at a time.
