Rosemoo Office in Beijing, China by Cun-Design

 
January 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sunshine PR

Beauty of orient lies in the lyric way of expressing emotions and its simple and natural nature. Such characteristics are not superficial symbols or cultural elements imposed on inner nature. Symbols and elements are not essential in design and they themselves only could not build up good designs! Beauty of Asia lies more in the flexible way of design.

Kleine Rittergasse 11 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany by Franken Architekten

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Franken Architekten

Good architecture takes its environment into account, particularly surrounding buildings. In Frankfurt am Main, Franken Architekten has taken a literal approach through a digitally drawn façade for a new home and studio in old town Sachsenhausen.

Frankfurt’s Alt-Sachsenhausen is a neighborhood that, according to the city, urgently needed to change. Until the 1990s, traditional cider houses dominated the area valued for its entertainment and nightlife, but it was heavily run down in recent years. The city created a preservation statute that placed premiums on the conversion of the gastronomy establishments to housing and other uses. A small scene of art galleries, ad agencies, and fashion and designers shops sprung up in the area, leading some people to call the district SoMa (South of Main), inspired by New York’s famous SoHo (South of Houston) area.

Indigo Waterfall in Tokushima, Japan by spatial practice

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  spatial practice

Award-winning architectural office, spatial practice, completed a site-specific light installation in Tokushima, Japan; titled Indigo Waterfall. The permanent fiber optic lighting installation is debuted at the Tokushima LED Art Festival 2016 flanking both sides of Kasuga Bridge creating the perception of indigo ink spilling into Shinmachi River.

Inspired by both the past and present industries of Tokushima City, the designer merges and highlights the importance of both industries in its development of the city.  Tokushima City was built by the indigo dye industry; big indigo storehouses occupied both waterfronts surrounding Kasuga Bridge where white walls and blue stones were reflected onto the river. Tracing back to its history, the Indigo Waterfall gives new remembrance to the surrounding indigo storehouses by utilizing Tokushima City’s new thriving LED industry and its surrounding natural beauty. By connecting light, nature, local culture and people; the installation creates a new image for Tokushima City.

Indigo Waterfall bridges the past, future, and evolution of industrial development.

Matola House in Elche, España by Jaime Sepulcre Arquitecturas

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jaime Sepulcre Arquitecturas

This house is a hybrid of several types of houses: first of all the first thing it wants is to be a “house of the Camp d’Elx”, as those still populate the rural districts with its peculiar silhouette, whose traditional architecture makes use of ceramic decks inclined and the deep porches -for shade- oriented at noon; But at the same time it also wants to be a “house-patio Mediterranean”, introverted, protected from the outside and purely white; And also has in its genetics a “Californian house”, one of those sophisticated houses of the admired modern architecture of Los Angeles -with whom we share Mediterranean climate- that unfold their plants -many L shaped- in open horizontal spaces which overlook the gardens and the refreshing swimming pools.

House Vlijmen in Netherlands by Jan Couwenberg Architectuur

 
January 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jan Couwenberg Architectuur

In the village of Vlijmen this house was designed for an elderly couple, who wanted to keep on living in this house as long as possible. Therefore, most of the program is located on ground level, on top only a spare bed- and bathroom are being made. The box from the ground level is being perforated with voids, where a small patio, wooden Western Red Cedar parts, or windows were made. By making this rhythm, a car port and patio-shaped exteriors give the house an extra layer between in- and outside.
