Fine Tuning Harman Int’l’s Flagship Audiophile Listening Room in New York

NEW YORK:  “These speakers sound OK, but that’s not good enough. Something isn’t right with this room.”*  In May 2014, Harman International acquired an expansive space at 527 Madison Avenue at 54th Street for its flagship experience center. Designed to showcase their full range of consumer and audiophile equipment, the street level would be devoted to Harman’s AKG®, Harman Kardon®, JBL®, and other respected brands. The lower level would feature a screening room and, behind a discrete sliding door, a private listening room outfitted with Harman’s premium Mark Levinson® amplifiers, and award-winning Revel Salon2 Speakers, a CD/SACD Disc player, and a turntable for vinyl aficionados.  After six months of construction, the showroom and its listening room were ready for a trial run. But, despite the meticulous planning and design, it was clear to the true audiophiles in the room that something was amiss.

Contain[it] developed together with Alphaville, a sales booth that intends to innovate and break with the use of temporary structures for the sale of real estate projects in the Brazilian market. What is seen in the market today are structures that are very attractive for the public, or structures that are significantly reusable. The idea of the project was to address both aims.

Alexandria House by Pivot Studio

 
January 9th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Pivot Studio

The development replaces the existing rear wing of the house with a new structure which simulates the form and mass of the previous construction. Whilst the pre-existing form and mass are retained and taken as cues for the new structure, the materiality is reinterpreted as a skin which wraps and contains the new space. The skin rejects the use of a ‘corner’ which defines the demarcation between wall and ceiling, here, both become the one treatment, the one surface, the one space. The familiar material of corrugated iron is chosen as the appropriate treatment for the skin, responding to the industrial context the house shares and as a reference to the previous structure on the site.

This cafe was built on the seafront facing the entrance of Tokyo Bay at the tip of the peninsula Yokosuka.

Wooden counter table length 6.3m in cafes is placed under the continuous windows of the sea side. You can drink coffee while watching the ocean in front. We’ve considered the height of the floor as the sea looks good from this counter. Our first design about this cafe was to determine the height of the floor And we considered the effective evacuation route for the tsunami when the earthquake.

ANTOINE in Verbier, Switzerland by BUREAU A

 
January 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BUREAU A

The mountains have the power to call for feelings of fascination and fear at the same time. Switzerland has a strong tradition of observing the Alps, living with them, hiding inside them. The awe and the anxiety that this monumental landscape appeals is reflected in the writings of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz, one of the most important Swiss writers. His novels, Derborence, describes the massive rock fall that covered the pastures of the valley of Lizerne in 1714. Antoine, the main character, survives seven weeks under the rocks before he manages to reach his village, and life.

TWO HOUSES CONDE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Hitzig Militello arquitectos (HMA)

Connections

From the beginning this project had to respond to two different voices, or two clients. Both required the same amount of square meters for their future homes. It is perhaps the greatest achievement of this project, having understood how to complete the entire buildable volume equally for both owners, and without losing the ability to have access to almost all of the terrain. The strategy chosen was to cross-distribute the meters that corresponded to each owner, so that both units rotate through the central axis of the patio in a centrifugal manner. To achieve the crossed connection of the two properties without wasting useful meters, we took the decision to “externalize” the stairs, like sleeve-bridges connecting both units.

New Calais conference centre in France by Arte Charpentier Architectes

Article source: v2com

Arte Charpentier, the lead architect, will design the new Centre de Congrès et de Spectacles de Calais, in partnership with Abciss-Architectes, as part of a consortium led by the Rabot Dutilleul Group.

Arte Charpentier Architectes presented an ambitious plan for the major cultural facility, to be located on an 18,000 sqm oceanfront site. Featuring rounded contours, it is designed to make the most of the site’s exceptional views: the port to the east; the sea and spa district to the north; and to the south, the city and its historic monuments such as the Risban fort, lighthouse, watchtower and City Hall. The conference and performing arts centre is a strong iconic structure that will focus perspective, giving it more power without concealing the sea view and providing instant appeal to the waterfront.
