Storefront Loft in New York by Messana O’Rorke Architects

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: Messana O’Rorke Architects

An unforgiving block in the Far East of the East Village located in what is called Alphabet City provided the location for a unique living space for an alternative couple and their collection of art and contemporary furniture. The existing space located on the ground floor separated itself from the life of the street with an ominous brick wall having only two very small square windows allowing very little natural light to find it’s way into the space. Prior to our project, the space was used as an art gallery and various other functions including housing monks and their pet Lama.

5th Avenue Camper Store in New York by Nendo

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: Nendo

A new concept for Camper’s larger shops, following on our concept of ‘shoes that walk freely through the air’ developed for Camper’s small-scale shops in cities like Osaka, Paris, San Francisco and Moscow.  The design concept for the large shops had faced a consistent challenge: in a high-ceilinged space, to use the upper part of a space with high ceilings.
