Konohana house in Osaka, Japan by suite plus

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

Article source: suite plus

This project was for a house located in the corner of a densely populated area with various houses of different age, height, frontage, and color.The site is at the corner of a road with heavy traffic day and night despite its narrowness, and the adjacent house is built so close together, nearly touching the site boundary. Considering the noise and privacy, it was inevitable to adopt a structure that is closed to the surrounding environment. Therefore, the challenge was to prevent the room from having a locked-up feeling and to incorporate the natural environment.

Deco Temple (Elixir Bunn Coffee Roasters) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Azaz Architects

Famous Saudi coffee roasters Elixir Bunn opened their new location in Riyadh, designed by Azaz Architects. After building a strong reputation for their coffee, it was time to build an atmosphere to complement their famous drinks. Coffee in Saudi Arabia is well-rooted into the local culture and could be traced back to times prior to the formation of the Kingdom. Since then, coffee in the region has evolved, and today, the coffee industry in Saudi Arabia is flourishing. To match that progression, Azaz Architects created the space as a “Deco Temple” to take coffee seekers into a modern day spiritual-like experience.
