Kolenik creates multifunctional luxury apartment in Amsterdam.

‘A typical Amsterdam apartment’ is how the interior designer Robert Kolenik describes this apartment in Amsterdam city centre, which comprises the upper three floors of a building. Having lived and worked abroad for years, the owner asked Kolenik to come up with an interior design for his apartment. ‘Homes in the city centre are limited in terms of size’, the designer explains, ‘so the challenge is to create functional space that retains a luxurious, homely feel.’

Tostado Suipacha Coffee Club in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Hitzig Militello Arquitectos

 
January 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hitzig Militello Arquitectos 

Starting off from the idea of recreating the spirit of the traditional Buenos Aires groceries without resorting to cliches, we worked with the materiality of what to us best reflects this kind of store: the wooden box for groceries. The sheer simplicity of this single element can generate spatiality both by addition and subtraction. The result attempts to describe this spirit, which was built by the abstraction of these elements. In short: constructing the decoration without decorating the construction.

The client purchased a deteriorated townhouse where she would live alone. The refurbishment project should adapt the house for the needs of the future resident. For this, the usual order of a residential program was reversed, so that the ground floor area is the private area and upstairs is the social area.

Established as a home for the Central Texas division of Chinmaya Mission, an international non-profit Hindu spiritual organization, this new 8-acre campus is characterized by an architectural language that reinterprets traditional Indian typologies in order to reflect the organization’s modern context. Presented with the unique opportunity of designing a Hindu mission in Central Texas, the architects applied their knowledge of local building materials to create a visual language that is rich in texture, sculptural in quality, and innovative in design.

BKM – Bündner Kunst museum in Chur, Switzerland by Barozzi / Veiga

 
January 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Barozzi / Veiga 

The extension of the Villa Planta, which will accommodate the Bündner Kunstmuseum, is an exercise of integration within an urban ensemble. Despite the stringent limitations of the plot, the design strives to minimize its exterior volume by inverting the program’s logical order. Hence, a new public space is generated that incorporates the garden that surrounds the Villa and is integrated with the gardens of the nearby buildings.

The concrete cube house in Koziegłowy, Poland by TEŻ ARCHITEKCI

 
January 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: TEŻ ARCHITEKCI

The house was built in the seventies of the XX century in Koziegłowy (Poland) as a typical representation of the so called “modernistic cube”. The main characteristic of this kind of buildings was the almost square basis and 2 floors (one being high ground floor with basement underneath). The owners wanted to remodel the building with the emphasis on raw materials, natural light and harmony between the inside and the outside of the house. The aim was to create more functional space yet with less storage room.
