Dressing Room for a Garden with a Pond in Tarragona, Spain by Clara Nubiola

This project started some time ago. Close relatives brought up the idea of constructing a wc/changing room in the garden. A place to change in and out of a bathing suit since the pond is used as a pool, thus avoiding having to go to the house in order to get changed. A place also to wash one’s hands after the “calçotades” that have already been established as a winter tradition. Pen, paper and inspection of the area to decide where would we place it.

In Wenden, the southernmost town of the german region of Sauerland electro mechanical actuators for water management, the power plant sector and the oil and gas industry are manufactured.

The special cut of the new building of the Drehmo GmbH is owed the topographical situation in this region. The moving landscape caused the terracing of the landscape and produces irregularly shaped lot. The unusual floor plan, generated by this contour, and the hillside situation with a view over the valley determine the character and exceptional styling.

G U G G E N H E I M H E L S I N K I in Finland by Rafi Segal Architecture

Article source: Rafi Segal Architecture 

The Urbanism of Helsinki, as much as the museum’s program, plays a defining role in shaping the new Guggenheim located in Eteläsatama.  Capturing the activity of the city’s south harbor, the project creates a series of terraces and courtyards, cut-out of the building’s mass, which extend the urban public space of the waterfront onto the higher ground of TahititorninVuori Park. The ascending movement of these terraces is echoed in the interior organization of the museum which is conceived as an architectural promenade of exhibition spaces and urban vistas. Tourists and residents, art and community meet through the new museum building and within it. The icon of cultural activity seen from a far becomes at close an urban landscape of courtyards and passages which enhances the experience of the city and its fellowship with the elements of nature.

iMovie is one of the various iRooms formats, a room with a film projector on the wall that you can manage directly from the included iPad, the soft curves of the bed structure, of the closet, and of the big Jacuzzi with view, suggested us the use of spherical lamps to emphasize the sinuosity of the shapes and of the context. The Luna pendant lamps by In-es.artdesign, perfectly adapted to our needs both for their shape and for the material used which resembles the surface of the moon. Inside the lamps we inserted RGB LED lamps that can be regulated in intensity and in color directly through iPad.
