Crew Offices and Café in Québec, Canada by Henri Cleinge ARCHITECTE

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: Henri Cleinge ARCHITECTE 

Located in the old Royal Bank space on St-Jacques street in Old Montreal, the Crew offices is a project defined by a 12,000 office area for a tech start-up which would also include a café for freelance workers as well as for the public.  The project presented two distinct design challenges: The first design challenge originated from the client’s requirements- how to elaborate an architectural relationship and construct boundaries between the various program functions.  The second challenge became a deeper questioning on how to approach design in the context of a heritage building.

Southwest Modern Townhome Development in Phoenix, Arizona by The Ranch Mine

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: The Ranch Mine 

In many ways, “Uptown Row” is a development between two worlds. The site is situated less than 500 feet away from a light rail station in Uptown Phoenix, between a heavy commercial thoroughfare and historic residential district. Its typology straddles the line between a single-family home and multi-family complex. It is part of a city that relies on the automobile but is actively shifting towards public transportation. This 10-unit greyfield development designed by young Phoenix based architecture firm The Ranch Mine and built and developed by Boxwell Southwest finds harmony in a diverse neighborhood, stitching together disparate elements in a refined, modern complex.

Soro- The Village Pub in Goa, India by Raya Shankhwalker Architects

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: Raya Shankhwalker Architects

“Soro”, meaning alcoholic beverage in Konkani is a tavern conceptualised within the ruins of an old corner store. The corner store itself became the protagonist in the story of the bar; the design is centred around the concept of a 1940’s warehouse owned by a local dealer who traded in different merchandise. Thus retaining as much of the original structure as possible became pivotal.
