The space has taken shape after the land. Those who live their lives among the bustle of hundreds or thousands of people each day, come to this place in search of rest or healing.
The spaces of Dada Pension, taking after the site, are made to be independent but unable to exist separately. Dada Pension, which has a somewhat complicated circulation between spaces, is planned so that people can escape from the city and find calm, separate themselves from other people, or connect with people who are similar to themselves.

Located in the central square of Nha Trang City, the building stands out among regular square blocks. The façade area is quite narrow, so the architect have transformed the monotonous glasses into colorful “walles”. A part of elevation space is used as a place to plant trees, as a result, it creates “green” balconies, brings the comfort feelings to the users. The façade area is quite narrow but the land plot is such a corner plot so the whole room is designed to receive direct natural wind and sunlight. All rooms come with sea views.

A new and vibrant lifestyle design hotel by Philippe Starck will debut in Singapore. M Social Singapore has 293 rooms and thrives on an interplay of friendship, community and new experiences. It is built on the democratic premise of giving the best, while being affordable to the greatest number of people, particularly those with a millennial mindset.
Guided by these principles, Starck conceptualised the project as an avant-garde laboratory in the ever-evolving neighbourhood of Robertson Quay. “M Social is where all the elements of the world – including creativity, humour and love – come together in an explosion of energy to create the joy of today’s and tomorrow’s world. To me, it is a stage dedicated to creative people,” he said.
Throughout the project, the density and strength of raw concrete is balanced with the concept of immateriality by the use of multimedia projections and video screens.

As an active non-partisan think-tank organization dedicated to health and wellness, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) plays host to a revolving door of meetings and seminars throughout the week. KHI engaged Hufft to renovate the first floor of their historic building to maximize the efficiency, hospitality and capacity of their conference center. The resulting design provides a collection of meeting spaces that accommodate a variety of group sizes and meeting styles. The rooms include several closed-door cubbies for individual work and quiet contemplation, small meeting rooms for collaborative brainstorming, and a sequence of larger spaces with flexible partitions that can expand to accommodate presentations for up to 170 people.

The apartment is located on the 1st floor of a housing building with exclusive access to a big patio which corresponds to the roof of the garage placed on the ground-floor. We have come across an apartment very fragmented by thick structural walls. However, given the possibility of creating a close relation between the inside and the outside, it was chosen to place the living areas on the rear elevation, with access to the patio. For that effect, all the walls of the various rooms that made up the inner zone of the apartment were demolished and all those compartments were transformed in one single and large living-room with the kitchen at the end. The kitchen was treated as a loose volume, hidden by two folding doors which allow a more fluid circulation around that volume which in turn hides the subsequent laundry area.

The Trull Residence is on a small corner lot in the suburbs. The lot is long north to south, with driveway access from the north and southern views of a forest and pond. The main view of the house from the street is from the east. The house is divided into two pieces – a solid sleeping volume and an open living pavilion – connected by a glass entry hall. A walled lawn, patio, screened porch, and south-facing deck surround the living pavilion on three sides, forming a network of private outdoor spaces overlooking the forest and pond.
