The volumetric envelope is almost  the first of the premises when confronting preexisting and program requirements. The contradiction between a latent hostility in an apparent idyllic condition of the place is also.

Arrow Studio in Victoria, Australia by nervegna reed architecture

Article source: nervegna reed architecture 

The Arrow Studio was conceived as an out of focus, reflective vortex in the Australian landscape.

Our client Mr. White retired to the countryside near Hanging Rock in Victoria a few years before the project started. His brief was to build a small gallery in the back yard facing the bush, where he could hang paintings and photos and also use as a studio. For security reasons, as well as to maximize hanging space, we were asked to have minimal windows, and for those windows to be framed in a way that intruders could not break in.

Hide Out in Los Angeles, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

 
July 5th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Los Angeles-based architect Dan Brunn, AIA, Principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, redesigned the 3,600-square-foot former Janss Family residence—a hub associated with the contemporary L.A. art scene in the 1970s and 1980s—by using his minimalist aesthetic, while incorporating design cues from the home’s original architect Frank Gehry, FAIA. The entire first floor was gutted to create an open-air plan that accommodates work and display space for the owner, artist James Jean, as well as domestic necessities. Interiors are arranged around an existing oversized rectangular skylight. New windows were added to bring additional natural light into the kitchen and living areas. Brunn created a dynamic undulating staircase wall and utilized primary building materials—such as wood, concrete, and glass—as a nod to the architectural shapes and material palette famously used by Gehry at the time.

UOL Frame Gallery in Singapore by Ministry of Design

 
July 5th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ministry of Design

The 2nd in a series of three show galleries for UOL, this is for Thomson Three residential development in Singapore. The design capitalizes on the characteristics of its unique site conditions and uses it to heighten the experience of show gallery and show flats. Nestled amongst a grove of tightly spaced trees and bounded by 2 roadways, the gallery is primarily arranged around a central model display atrium with a top lit skylight, with 4 ‘pods’ extending outwards from this central point. 2 of the pods are orientated towards the roadway, with large glass windows providing the surrounding traffic an enticing view into the gallery’s bustle and sales activity — serving as the show gallery’s \”window display\” and a means to showcase the development models and graphics.

Jack Daniel’s Barrel House 1-14 in Lynchburg, Tennessee by Clickspring Design

 
July 4th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Clickspring Design

Most who have visited a distillery know that entering an active barrel house is a profound olfactory experience. Over a period of five or more years, as a barrel of whiskey matures, a portion of its contents is lost to evaporation. This inevitable process, multiplied by thousands of barrels, creates the “angel’s share”, a scent that blankets the building in a delightfully unmistakable aroma. The angel’s share is one of the first characteristics that welcomes visitors to Barrel House 1-14 at the Jack Daniel Distillery.
