Fairview Independent High School in Kentucky, Tennessee by Nomi Design

 
August 27th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Nomi Design

Located on the outskirts of Ashland, Kentucky, Westwood is a small, yet tight knit community.  Originating in the 1920’s as a steelworker’s enclave, it has suffered its share of set-backs with the decline of that industry. Currently, 14% of the occupants of Westwood are under the poverty line, 20% of those under 18 years of age. With that said, schools really need to matter here.  In underserved communities in our commonwealth, schools can be the saving grace for many children. A focus on custom design drove everything we did as we worked to create a unique, functional, responsible, beautiful place. In the case of Westwood/Fairview, we have what we find often in Kentucky as a rural/urban center. This small community has its town core anchored heavily by this school.  By encouraging the school leaders to save the existing buildings and add something with an Architectural presence, we created a neighborhood identity through a new architecture at the same time conserving an existing landscape. By the sheer nature of the infill we could provide the school with a Main Street front door and create a walkable condition for the students.  Small communities in many places also use their schools as community centers and a place to gather and this is no different. This is now a new, vibrant public space for those with and without children. As with all schools, design on the human scale is pertinent so that the children feel engaged with the spaces they will learn in. It is our belief that for children to be inspired, they must learn in inspired spaces.

Milky Mirage in Okinawa, Japan by Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

 
August 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects 

The following interior design was realized for a store selling dairy products owned by a company which runs its own dairy farm. Since the distinctive characteristic of their products is the fact that fresh milk produced at the dairy farm is used in each and all of their products, we were tasked with providing a space to attractively display said products by evoking the imagery associated with fresh milk and the farm throughout the entire space.

White Monkey Pizza Lab & Bar in Leipzig, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Pizza! Always a delicious slice of memory. Of Italy. Of sun, espresso, the Vespa. Of the unique Italian instinct for lifestyle and dolce vita. Marché International tunes into this attitude towards life with its new restaurant concept, reinventing the pizza with White Monkey. To underscore this unconventional approach, the internationally aligned restaurant brand clearly positions itself as a pizza lab and bar: ingredients are combined in unusual ways; the pizzas are long instead of round, they are cut with scissors and shared amongst friends; the pizzeria becomes a cocktail bar, an urban meeting place that is open all day. In the constantly expanding yet fiercely competitive market of system gastronomy, it is crucial to do more than just present a coherent restaurant concept. With a Corporate Design that comprises not only interior design, but also the complete brand communication from logo to restaurant décor to website and social media presence, we have created a consistent and remarkable brand image for the White Monkey brand – with interdisciplinary thinking in place of salami tactics.
