DSSI Elementary School Renovation in Seoul, South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

 
March 14th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The project focuses on three main strategies to address the school’s requirements:

1. Maximize space. The space was not properly used since the corridor that connects the main door with the other floors was only used sporadically.

2. Equal size. The two classrooms were very different in form and size due to the plan’s layout. The target was to propose a new configuration that gives equal spaces for both.

3. Sharing activities. The new school’s philosophy has to do with sharing spaces to study and providing diverse number of possibilities to educators to perform new pedagogical practices. The two rooms in the existing condition were duplicating spaces for playing, studying, meeting, sharing, etc.

COUNTRY GARDEN FOREST CITY in Malaysia by LAVA

LAVA has won 2nd prize in an international competition to design a new city in Malaysia.

LAVA’s concept sees the city defined not as one iconic building, nor as a skyline, but as a central public space, a real forest. Chris Bosse, director of LAVA, explains: “Skylines across the world look the same – usually a couple of iconic towers in the centre surrounded by lots of lesser quality buildings, which all resemble each other.” “Here we have designed an inverse city skyline where the icon of the city is a public space, not an object/building. Our central space is a Rainforest Valley and demonstrates the equation: PEOPLE = CITY. From an object to a place.”

Stado Puro Tepa in Spain by James & Mau

 
March 14th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Infiniski

The architectonical concept behind Estado Puro was inspired by Paco Roncero’s approach towards what is supposed to be “typically Spanish”. In his case “cuisine” is based on innovation and experiment while preserving their origins. We proposed to redefine the popular symbolic images of Spain by giving the twist to what’s traditional in order to achieve a chic and sophisticated yet folk ambient. Spanish classical comb “La Peineta” is the chosen to star such an objective.

The owners of the snack bar within the building of Leroy Merlin are Cypriot Americans who worked in the restaurant business in the US before returning home to Cyprus. It was the flair of the traditional American dinner that we wanted to bring to this space in a more industrial way to match the industrial building hosting it.

This project was in collaboration with interior designer Leonidas Leonidou.

MAPmx Studio inserts wooden object into residential apartment.

Mexico City practice, MAPmx has completed a residential interior in the northwest area of Mexico City. The strategy for the design of the 360 sqm apartment was to place a wooden piece into the main space. This element inside of the unit, divides the space into half creating separated areas for public and private program. Living, dining and study are concave, while leaving private areas convex. Service spaces such as kitchen, laundry and service bedroom are the only program located outside of the concave/ convex object, they join part of the perimeter of the apartment.
