Podere Navigliano is an antique tuscan farmhouse in the heart of Sienese Clays where nature and history are the undisputed protagonists. This project is the evolution of thought Smallness which characterized all previous projects of the office.

In this case especially the materials but also the attention to the historical context and the environment are at the heart of the project; the reinterpretation of traditional elements has allowed to find a new language, a new aesthetic inseparably linked to the tradition.

Casa MM in Jalisco, México by ELÍAS RIZO ARQUITECTOS

 
December 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ELÍAS RIZO ARQUITECTOS

Casa MM Casa presented an unusual challenge for us. Two brothers who owned a considerable stretch of land in Tapalpa approached us with the intention of building two separate houses. As we dug into the project’s needs we realized that both of our clients had similar needs and while they didn’t mind, and in fact preferred, that the houses share a common language, each one had to convey its own singular personality. The topography of the site imposed its own set of variables that resulted in further slight alterations in the design of each house.

Palacio de Hierro Antea Façade in Queretaro, Mexico by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

 
December 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

The classical department store is defined by a strict physiognomy: a box with four façades. This constraint was the principal challenge to be overcome in the project. Dematerializing the material was the guiding concept used to create diffuse limits based on the horizontality of the solid and void elements to achieve an effect of floating layers.

White Shining Objects 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Simon Hjermind Jensen / SHJWORKS

Article source:  Simon Hjermind Jensen

“We do not know” was the common answer to the passersby, given by Shjworks while they were installing the project and were asked what it was. And it was true; Shjworks could not exactly tell what it was. They knew the project consisted of five white shining objects placed along a stretch of 400 m in the suburb of Husum just outside Copenhagen. They knew the objects would be illuminated from dusk till dawn, and they knew the height of the objects would vary from 4,2 m to 0,6 m. They also knew the project was the winning entry for a competition about urban spaces, arranged by the Copenhagen municipality. Together with the objects they included 7 benches, 3 planters and 95 step stones.

HOTEL AMAZON in Athens, GREECE by Charles Alexious Interior Design & Architecture

 
December 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Charles Alexious Interior Design & Architecture

Located near Syntagma Square, the central square of Athens, adjacent to The Parliament House and at the foot of the Parthenon, this seven (7) storey building was built in the early 1960s and started life as an office building with retail showroom on the ground floor.  The site was bought in its entirety and converted to a boutique hotel in response to the shortage of hotel rooms and the growing need for quality affordable holiday accommodation in central Athens.

The brief required interior architecture, interior design, interior decorating, styling and restoration capabilities.
