Gucci Headquarters in Milan, Italy by PIUARCH

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source:  PIUARCH

The redevelopment project of the old Caproni factory focuses on enhancing the stylistic features of the 1920s’ architecture and aims to transform this old plant into a large complex for Gucci, holding offices, showrooms and spaces for fashion shows and operations connected with graphics, as well as a canteen and restaurant. Recovery and enhancement of the characteristic shed buildings was the first element of the redevelopment project: set out in a regular pattern across the site and featuring modular structural bays, the abandoned industrial warehouses with exposed-brick facades generate, thanks to their spatial layout, a seamless interaction between the inside and outside. Particular attention was paid to the Hangar recovery, a volume of “exceptional” size, once intended for the final assembly of Caproni aircraft, that is now used to house the fashion shows from 2017. Moreover, the Hangar is enhanced by a large open and covered square connected with the main pedestrian axis facing to via Mecenate. This covered square acts as the core of the pedestrian system that includes a tree-lined square, common gardens, patios and green walls. Inside the regular layout of solid structures and empty spaces, a new six-storey tower closely interacts with the old construction: characterized by a glass façade covered with a regular pattern of sunscreens, the new building breaks down the site’s symmetry and tends to draw together all the different functions.

Villa IJsselzig in IJsselstein, The Netherlands by EVA architecten

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source: EVA architecten 

The villa is situated overlooking the river Hollandse IJssel. The riverside has been kept transparent to maximise the view, the dyke side has a more modest, closed character to guarantee privacy. The house refers to the neighbouring houses in the original ribbon development in terms of form but has a contemporary character with minimal details and rich colours. The copper roof and bricks have been chosen in the same shade of redbrown color to make the whole appear as one volume.

Ica Miami in Florida by ARANGUREN & GALLEGOS ARQUITECTOS SL

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source: ARANGUREN & GALLEGOS ARQUITECTOS SL 

The new headquarters of the ICA MIAMI Foundation emerges with the desire to be an international artistic reference and an icon of Miami´s cultural offer. The museum offers itself to the city, and is conceived within the dispersed urbanism of the “Miami Design District” as a luminous cubic volume, as a “Magic Box”, a “Boite à Miracle”, open on its two north and south fronts through two perforated and reflective facades.

The program of an institution such as the ICA Miami is already an attractive announcement, but why deprive the spaces that host it of a certain degree of seduction?

The BRAC bookstore and cafe was conceived in May of 2009 and immediately established itself as a central point in Florence for all those with a passion for contemporary art and cuisine. The formula of a ‘library with a kitchen’, a breath of fresh air in the city, combines the passions of the owners Sacha and Melisa: a chef specialized in vegan and vegetarian cuisine with a love for comics and illustration and a bibliophile with an interest for all contemporary art forms (theatre, dance, cinema, photography).

House in Bernolákovo, Slovak Republic by ZITNANSKY GONDA architects

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source: ZITNANSKY GONDA architects 

The project was not a standard investor-architect assignment as one of the project’s authors is also the house investor along with his partner. Both had dreamt of a non-standard housing in a town or smaller village, which would have its intimacy and be protected from the usual street noise.

The house’s aim was to use the potential of the surrounding gardens and its view of the surrounding countryside. Inside, an emphasis is placed on the functional, material and artistic aspects to create an inspirational environment for creation, as both investors are creative professionals.

The Line Sukhumvit 101 in Thailand by Openbox Architects co.,ltd

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source: Openbox Architects co.,ltd

– Architectural design

“The Line 101” has been created based on the key idea, “Living between the Line”. The expression, like in literature, refers to hidden, deeper meaning, beyond words, or visual appearances. Inspired by Davenport’s famous, modern painting, “The Waterfall”. The demographic group of residences, young, free, active and successful, are perceived as vertical stripes of colors, expressing themselves so lively, vividly and uniquely, to create a unique, dynamic work of art on the skyline of Sukhumvit.
