CupOne cafe in Beijing, China by Latitude

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: Latitude

Cafés, restaurants, libraries and the likes have become indubitable extensions of our own homes. In this particular occasion, LATITUDE was commissioned to explore the possibilities of extending the public realm into a standard café organized into two floors and a terrace.

By removing the entrance façade, the first floor was opened up, thus becoming an extension of the outside space. Inside, visitors can find two areas: the fast (come-and-go) area and the relaxed (sitting down) area. The first one features high tables and chairs next to the service desk –a longitudinal lighting box wrapped in white glass–. The second area portrays low tables, chairs and a bench zone. These two areas are divided by steel made longitudinal furniture that incorporates an orchestrated disposition of mirrors and projectors to create a visual illusion.

Librairie Avant-Garde, Ruralation Library in Zhejiang Province, China by AZL Architects

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Article source: AZL Architects

Located in Daijiashan Village,Eshan She Nationality Township of Tonglu, Zhejiang Province, the Avant-Garde Ruralation Library is the 11th Bookstore run by the Librairie Avant-Garde. With the culture-spreading idea ——Avant-Garde and Library, as well as the unique regional natural and human landscape of the ‘Shes’ village, this project has become the public life bond among local villagers and alien readers, and also become a a focal point of local cultural and creative industries. The main body of the library was an idle yard lying at one side of the village’s main street, including two yellow mud adobe houses and a platform projecting from a slope. While maintaining the structural and spatial sequence of the buildings and courtyards, the architectural design restores the current declined status to a healthy state. The relationship between the new and the old strengthens the ‘timing’. The carriers of time and memory – the adobe walls, tile roofs and roof trusses have become the spatial dominance, and have jointly created context-continuing contemporary local aesthetics, together with the publicity of function regeneration.

Article source: AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

The sizes of the plots is 5,873 m2. The total requested built areas was 4,000 m2 that we reached with our proposal. We wanted to create a special flair, a place to feel home but relax on the same time with the highest standard of living quality.

We created two different units to create also two different flats to adapt to the market. At the same time they can fit different need. The houses are really flexible and different function can be brought in.

Tianjin Binhai Library in China by MVRDV

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

MVRDV are nearing the completion of a library in Tianjin, China. The 34,200 m2 building forms part of the new Binhai Cultural Centre, the masterplan of which was designed by German architects GMP, and joins four other buildings through a series of ‘cultural corridors’. The library bases itself around a mirrored spherical auditorium which, coupled with the main atrium, forms an eye that gives panoramas of the interior space and reflects the beautiful park in front of the building. Terraced bookshelves echo the sphere throughout the atrium, leading users up into the heart of the library, before continuing around the building as louvres. The cultural project was designed for Tianjin Binhai District and is estimated to be open to the public in mid-2017.
