In designing a new fifteen-story headquarters for international luxury clothier Shinsegae International, Olson Kundig sought to create an iconic landmark in the heart of Gangnam-gu, one of Seoul’s largest districts. Completed in 2015, the building unites more than five hundred Shinsegae employees, who were previously spread between several buildings throughout the city. The program includes staff offices and meeting spaces, design studios, a rooftop garden and sculpture park, and ground-level retail and restaurant space that face onto a public plaza. Secure zoned entry provides public building access from the street and controlled private access for corporate officers and VIP guests via a side entry.

Within Rouge Nail Bar’s second Bucharest location it was desired to revamp the former aesthetic (created by architect Corvin Cristian) by adapting and preserving a part of its already existing elements while also adding new features.

The location’s concept was taken from its name; NAIL & BAR thus creating a space in which nails wouldn’t be the sole service provided. In this way, a cosy and hip environment was created which can be utilised by patrons with whichever primary use they desire.

Until so far, with its 4 editions, from 2013 to this year’s edition, Electric Castle music festival in Bonțida, Romania set itself apart from the usual staging of a music festival. Combining striking visual elements, mass entertainment, and a Gothic setting – the ruin of a 15th century Banffy Castle – the event turned more into a complex sensorial and spatial experience, a celebration of contemporary art in its different forms: from music to architecture, design, and installation.
