House in Lubliniec 2, Poland by Dyrda Fikus Architekci

 
June 2nd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dyrda Fikus Architekci

The building is situated on a small 510m sq. plot, among a densely built-up residential area of  detached houses.

The residential street where the proposed house is located is of eclectic character. The formal and stylistic chaos of individual buildings is in opposition to the spatial order of the street. This divergence influenced the design concept, which favored the spatial context over the formal one, ie. it was more important to match to the order of the street (compact shape, emphasized building line, proportions of the edifice) than the form of the building itself. Regardless of it, the new house will always be just the next component of the existing stylistic chaos.

Boutique Penelope in Québec, Canada by Hatem+D

Article source: v2com

To celebrate the company’s 45 years of existence, the owners of Boutique Penelope wanted to not only expand their Place Ste-Foy business in Quebec City but also refresh its brand image through a new store design. The goal was to create a flow between the various spaces while preserving the existing display cases. Hatem+D Architecture used a logical and harmonious design concept to devise three distinct and well-defined zones. The “watches” section, in elegant black located in the back of the boutique, features a sales counter and a screen wall. In the middle, the white “jewelery” area illuminates the space with its counters and a repair workshop that’s cleverly delineated with frosted glass partitions. The balance between this opposition of black and white is smoothly interrupted by the champagne coloured gemstone station, a display overhung by a sculptural structure that resembles the facets of cut diamonds. The space is topped with a white acoustic module with recessed light fixtures, which brings an elegant contrast to the black ceiling. The large volumes and visual oppositions of this layout all blend together elegantly. Customers are offered an experience that’s both sophisticated and functional, and whose beauty is only matched by the refreshing and refined design.

Article source: v2com

STGM’s new head office is located in the Beauport borough of Quebec City, adjacent to the Estimauville eco-neighbourhood. It is a 1,000 square metre two-storied structure that puts the focus on eco-friendly, architectural innovation. The building succeeds in offering an exceptional level of comfort to its occupants through the mindful integration of a longitudinal form, orientation to the sun, light wood structure, meticulously selected materials and efficient systems, while producing a low ecological footprint. High performance concrete siding combined with Eastern Cedar creates an impression that is both simple and dynamic, with attention given to the relationship between solids and voids that lend the building an air of elegance that belies both time and fashion. From the first sketches, the designers sought to attain a high level of sustainability – a principle already at the heart of the firm’s priorities, using creativity to implement the strategies necessary to reach LEED-NC Platinum level. With this objective in mind, comfort, simplicity and coherence were selected as founding principles.

Stanton Williams were commissioned to create a new family home in North London within the Highgate Conservation area, replacing a late 1950s house.
