Timber Pavilion of the Vidy-Lausanne Theatre in Lausanne, Switzerland by Yves Weinand Architectes sàrl + Atelier Cube

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Article source: Yves Weinand Architectes sàrl + Atelier Cube

A Modular And Complementary Theatre Hall

The Pavilion can be adapted, as closely as possible to artistic projects. Its retractable seating allows a frontal or bifrontal stage and, folded, a larger space for performances or exhibitions. The non–elevated wooden stage floor, as well as a large stage opening (from 14 to 19 m), also offers a stage/hall rapport complementary to the other 3 theatre halls, both in terms of gauge and size and type of plateau, between the Charles Apothéloz Hall (386 seats, plateau of 15 x 10 m) and René Gonzales Halls (100 seats, 10 x 14 m) and The Gateway (100 seats, 9 x 8 m).

HUAYI SPACE Showroom in Shenzhen, China by Co-Direction Design

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Article source: Co-Direction Design

Ordinary site

The project is a furniture showroom, situated on the first floor of a factory building in Shenzhen, China. The building, not designed by architects, is very ordinary and has a low profile, without any special features other than functionality. In general, architects usually tend to incorporate various non-architectural elements into the buildings they designed, such as artistic and cultural elements, which can bring out either positive or negative effects.

However, the ordinariness of this factory building greatly touched and inspired us as approaching the interior design. We respected and made the best of basic elements in the original architectural space, including beams, columns, window and door openings, etc., to reshape it. For instance, the row of columns was tactfully utilized to form an interesting corridor, and the orderly window openings were transformed into “light boxes” that connect the inside and outside space.

Formerly a railway enclave, the Clichy-Batignolles ecodistrict is reconquering this forgotten piece of Parisian ground. This major municipal project was envisioned as a response to the elevated need for housing while paving the way for a durable, mixed-use 21st century city. So much data that had to be compiled to come up with smart solutions for a multi-program block (nursing home, social housing, private housing, religious center, and retail businesses).

The Bottling Dept. Food Hall in San Antonio, Texas by Clayton & Little

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Article source: Clayton & Little 

Originally constructed in 1894, a devastating fire claimed the historic Pearl Bottling House in 2003. Pearl salvaged as much from the rubble as possible, and hired Clayton & Little to rebuild the 13,132-square foot-structure as a modern interpretation of a lost Classical Revival jewel that would serve as a venue for emerging chefs and culinary talent.
