BEAUTY LIBRARY in Tokyo, Japan by Nendo

 
July 9th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Nendo

A composite store that consists of a specialty boutique for organic cosmetics and a café, tucked away on a street behind Aoyama-Street. For a woman to enhance her beauty, a close linkage between inner and outer body care is required. We therefore designed a service and space based on a concept that fuses to the maximum the features of cosmetics with food & drink. One is able to leaf through information on various products using a tablet and casually try out every single product in the store as if ordering a beverage, while enjoying your drink and food that enhances beauty from within. What’s more, QR codes are placed alongside each product, which enables customers to take home the information about that product on their mobile device and purchase them online later. In this way, the store not only sells cosmetic products, but is also a place where knowledge relating to them can be obtained. Therefore it can be described as a “library” like space with well-organized wooden shelves. Moreover, a “self-study room” feature was added amongst the shelves, with in-built café tables and bracket lights. The logo was designed to give an image of a square bookshelf filled with letters. In addition an “annex” hidden across the courtyard was designed so as not to just function as a café, but as a space that can serve as a party room, and hold small events and workshops.

Article source: FORMAT ELF ARCHITEKTEN

Located in the urban outskirts of Munich, the detached single-family house B built in timber frame construction was completed after only six months of construction. On the small plot the maximal possible cubature and the existing parameters have been used in an optimal way. The building follows line of the houses in the street and thus continues the urban edge along the link road. The front garden area next to the street is thereby supported and the roof orientation of the surrounding buildings continued.

Pavilion House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

 
July 9th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Our clients wanted a glass house.  The difficulty was that they wanted this house placed on a visually exposed 50’ x 100’ city lot that they owned in NE Portland.  This posed the challenge of designing a glass house with privacy.  Our solution was to design a pavilion-like structure in which the body of the house is supported by 4 ten-foot tall “legs.”  The legs are placed strategically to block unwanted views and provide privacy.

Solar House in Canada by Nacho Gias

 
July 9th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Nacho Gias 

Insight:

The project main idea lay on the sun interaction with a domo located in New Scotland, Canada.
The first step was to find out how the building reacts to sun light in different day key moments all along the year. The use of a 3d software allows me to figure out which areas would be exposed to sun light and which ones would be into shadow. At that point, I found an area that would be always exposed to light.

Kämp Galleria Shopping Center in Helsinki, Finland by Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

Article source: Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

The Kämp galleria shopping center is located in the center of Helsinki in the block called ’Antilooppi’, steeped in history. Espagalleria Co, which operates the center, wanted to develop the shopping center by extending the rentable area and changing the content in a more commercial direction. The solution was to create an indoor street in the Galleria on two  floors and to radically change the interior look. References were taken from the city structure and the history of the property. In  addition, the customers’ shopping experiences were improved by changing the circulation inside, and by creating views with new openings between the floors.
