The concept of this designing is to ensure the privacy and safety, and also create a living space which makes family members happy and easy.

At night, the shadow of houses will change with the light of the moon and stars, just like expressions on people’s face.

Hotel Indigo Helsinki Boulevard in Finland by Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

Hotel Indigo Boulevard is located in a historical boulevard in central Helsinki where the surrounding buildings have their origins from the the beginning of the 1800–‐1900s. The task was to transform the former office building into a modern hotel that would fit into the historical environment. The building went through an extensive renovation and only the concrete frame, built in the 60s, was preserved. The old pre–‐fabricated concrete façade was replaced with a new light construction wall. The boulevard facing  façade was clad with multidimensional zinc plating. The façade with its new insulaton makes the building very energy–‐ saving, consequently the hotel has been LEED–‐ classified.  Finnish design and local craftsmanship was used in hotel. The zinc façade was constructed by a 73–‐ year old local whitesmith Esko Kivi, who has been  in the business for 50 years.

Job Lounge for Groninger Museum in Netherlands by STUDIO JOB

 
July 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: STUDIO JOB

The lounge created by Studio Job for the Groninger Museum is a showpiece in itself.

The design duo of Job Smeets (1970) and Nynke Tynagel (1977) was inspired by 19th-century private clubs full of smoking gentlemen in top hats. These were once sophisticated bastions with thick-pile carpets on creaking wooden floors; chandeliers were suspended from richly decorated ceilings supported by solid pillars. The muffled silence was only broken by the calming spatter of the fountain at the entrance. It was an ivory tower for the elite – just as it was on the Titanic. It is not without reason that this world has vanished.

Insertion of the project on the site. The implantation was designed as gentle as possible, in order to preserve the level difference of the site and the views. We created two side stone walls, like a programmatic box with the social and service areas of the house.

Restructuring and extension of the Proudhon secondary school in Besançon, France by Tectoniques architects

 
July 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tectoniques architects

Proudhon secondary school was built in 1971. It is located in the Palente district, to the north of Besançon. It is surrounded by the Pergaud sixth form secondary school and the Orchamps gymnasium. The original architecture is typical of the mass urbanisation of the 1960s and the policy of standardisation, two phenomena which forged the “ordinary” heritage of the 20th century.
