Cultural home

Located at First Street, HOME forms the cultural heart of one of the largest areas of development in Manchester city centre – a flagship building that acts as a catalyst for the surrounding area. As the base for the new organisation formed by the merger of Cornerhouse and The Library Theatre Company, HOME has been designed to allow for the commissioning, production and presentation of critically engaged and technically complex artistic projects, as well as the hosting of large scale cultural events. The overall budget for HOME was £25 million. Its striking exterior acts like beacon, while the welcoming public spaces and social areas within are designed to be inviting to all. HOME is like a second home, a cultural home: a place for making, meeting and socialising, alongside enjoying the very best in international contemporary visual art, theatre and film.

Cleopatra Hotel Apartments in Ayia Napa, Cyprus by HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

A low budget renovation for a hotel apartment complex in Ayia Napa. The building was originally build as apartments to be sold to tourists or locals as holiday or weekend homes. Our task was to turn them into a hotel apartment block to be used as long or short term rental apartments. We used light materials and happy vivid colors along with the neutral colors for the big surfaces. All of these come in contrast with the blue Cypriot sky and the bright Cypriot sun! We renovated all of the areas of the hotel either by tearing down unnecessary walls and building new ones where needed as well as changed most of the furniture in the public spaces. All bedrooms where renovated in contemporary style

Restless Response: Emergency Medical Station 50 at Queens Hospital in New York City by Dean/Wolf Architects

 
March 19th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: v2com

The Queens Hospital EMS station was commissioned by the design excellence initiative process implemented by the New York City Department of Design and Construction, for the Fire Department of New York City.

Kathryn Dean, Principal for Dean/Wolf Architects explains the design by staying “I am interested in the capacity for architecture to convey identity and meaning through emotional resonance. I believe this happens through the impact of materials and form coming together in a particular place… In order to understand the building, it is important to understand two departure points: First, the building was commissioned shortly after 9/11. Second, when I work, I often build intuitive paper models to investigate ideas. When I received the commission, I started making these models. After several more rational schemes, the double horizontal bars emerged. It took me a bit of thought to realize why this felt right. They were my own deep emotional response to the fallen towers.”

The diagonal form pulses with the anticipation of movement, embodying the programmatic need for immediate action and energizing the community with a sense of engagement, Image Courtesy © Paul Warchol
