Fouquet’s Barriere hotel in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

 
December 3rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Maison Edouard François

A set of seven buildings including real and pastiche Haussmannian styles, as well as a building dating from the 1970’s, formed a nearly complete urban block in the Triangle d’or (the corner of the Champs-Elysées and the Avenue Georges V). The restaurant Le Fouquet’s is the flagship property of the Barrière company. The goal was to unify these disparate elements and to make it the next parisian “Palace”, thus establishing a strong new image.

STOCK Share Office in Tokyo, Japan by OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

Article source: OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

This is a project to convert a building that was originally a rental warehouse into a share office.
The existing building had a 5-story container architecture style. Due to the characteristics of the container warehouse, the space had low ceilings with no windows, and was surrounded by metal. This gave it a very inorganic feeling.The first thing we did was to establish a large aperture with the wooden sash facing the street.Then we planted an over 12meterhigh sequoia as a symbol tree, since this property exists in the middle of the hill and had no landmark. Because the depth of a shrubbery was only 1800mm, we made the root bowl as small as possible, and installed the tree at the top of the hill. As for the rest of the plants, we leveled their heights to the sequoia, and selected their leaf colors so that they are deeper towards the back.The entrance door is made out of a 10 year-old marine container.It has an important role to show when the office is open or closed.

Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely   made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. A real Hortus Conclusus. In the corner facing the cathedral, a massive stone measuring 250x150x50 cm, a veritable Cornerstone. And chiselled on that stone.

The Crystal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Schmidt hammer lassen architects

 
December 2nd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Schmidt hammer lassen architects

The extension to Nykredit consists of a new building – the Crystal – sited northwest of the existing Nykredit premises. Freestanding on the site, it reads as a transparent, geometrical, glazed form which, resting only on a single point and a single line, floats as a visually light, crystalline structure above the plaza.
