Minimalist Elegant House Design – The Maison ART in France

Posted on January 22, 2015 in Homes Design

This Maison ART is located in Saint Clément de Rivière, France designed by Agency Brengues Le Pavec

Project Details :

Emphasizing the privileged location and taking advantage of the natural declivity were the main aspects taken in account during the design process of this residence.

The minimalist, elegant architecture, completely open on the landscape, allows the owners to benefit of the exceptional environment.

In order to better exploit the natural slope, the house is organized on two levels; their orientation, as well as the wide terraces, generate views of Montferrier’s historical center and of the surrounding hills.

The living area and the parental room are located on the higher level; boundaries between the built and the natural disappear, as large bays open towards the surprising view.

More intimate, the ground floor shelters the areas dedicated to friends and visitors.

The vegetation is invited to occupy the space between the terraces and the house, while glazed passages articulate and sequence this green transition

Fresh-baked Cheese Tarts Store Interior PABLO by RONDO

Posted on August 13, 2014 in Interior Design

This latest fresh-baked cheese tarts store “PABLO” in Yokohama, Japan was designed by Atelier Rondo

The fresh-baked cheese tarts store “PABLO” opened their new store in Hyogo area following Umeda & Shinsaibashi in Osaka and Shibya in Tokyo. We have continued to support their store expansion throughout the country.

This time, they first had a function of eat-in café space with a food retail store. The store serves fresh-baked cheese tarts on site. The point of design is, like their other stores, to stage the process of making tarts: churning, baking, stamping, finishing, wrapping, and serving.

We investigated a catchy and design-conscious guidepath plan with a taste of entertainment so that customers standing in the queue can see and enjoy the making process in order. We created curve lines again that are the characteristics of “PABLO” store.

But this time, we made a sequence of intersectional curve lines from the façade to the inside of the shop like a tunnel, based on layer design. In addition, by piling up plants as natural factors, we established soft but symbolic “The world of PABLO”.


Fast Food Restaurant Interior Design – Classic Burger Joint

Posted on June 18, 2014 in Interior Design

This Fast Food Restaurant interior design is the “Classic Burger Joint” that was designed by Wondereight. Located in Lebanon, this small fast food interior ideas reflect an unique and genuine architectural experience.

The concept is all in the name: It’s a classic burger joint, and hamburgers is all ‘they’ do! The challenge was to create the most simple, straight to the point identity and architecture, while reflecting a unique and genuine experience.

From the name to the waiter’s name tag, we kept the simplicity flowing in every aspect of the communication. The thorough research we conducted (that involved traveling to London, Paris, New York and other American states!) and our love of Hamburgers have contributed largely in the success of the brand, and especially in the restaurant’s architecture.


Google Office Interior in Amsterdam by D/DOCK

Posted on April 2, 2014 in Interior Design

The interior concept of this Google new office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands was inspired by the garage where the founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin started their new company “Google”. The interior was done by D/DOCK with their famous philosophy ‘follow the arrows to the circular world of tomorrow’ that shape every aspect of their design and project for almost ten years now.

Designer description :

The garage where founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google, was the inspiration for the interior concept. Quirky elements throughout the office illustrate this era – from graffiti walls and cardboard box lights to the exposed ceilings and container wall in the 70-seater auditorium, also referred to as the Tech Talk.

Sustainability played a vital role in the restyling of the office. Existing meeting furniture, individual work places and parts of the micro-kitchens were offered a second life after refurbishment. D/DOCK adhered to Google’s healthy material list by using non-toxic materials only and designed with a great focus on energy and water consumption.

Situated in the Southern part of Amsterdam, the office is considered as an intelligent landscape. Each floor features its own cave; the zone build around the core of the building where all general facilities such as meeting rooms, huddle rooms, video booths and micro kitchens are located. The neighborhoods with the individual work places surround this central cave and represent the various departments. Every work place is adjacent to the window affording all employees a 180° view overlooking the city while working. This layout makes the office space highly adaptable. It allows the Googlers to communicate and work together in a diverse environment while having personal space at the same time.

Each floor gives a nod to typically Dutch elements – whether it is the carrier cycle reception desk, the Stroopwafel ceiling panels, Gingerbread wall covering or the Delft Blue graphics in the restaurant. The re-used Febo snack wall that once served the Amsterdam cafeteria, now acts as a distribution point of computer accessories. For those wanting to spice up their meeting, the real life sixties caravan in the middle of the office is the solution. It is nowhere close to an ordinary meeting room with the comfy cushions and cozy vintage furniture.

According to D/DOCK’s partner Coen van Dijck, the Amsterdam office is a feel good office. “It is a place that makes the employee perform better by offering a work environment that meets their needs”, he explains. “Happiness, comfort, flexibility, relaxation, well balanced nutrition, exercise, daylight, fresh air and visual stimulation are some of the fundamentals that makes this office a healthy one”, van Dijck continues. Google’s Healthy Food program ensures well-balanced menus in the restaurant, seating up to 80 Googlers. The gym, meditation room and the desk bikes all offer opportunities to stay in shape, both physically and mentally.


Sunset Plaza Residence by Belzberg Architects

Posted on March 30, 2014 in Homes Design

The Sunset Plaza Residence is a clustered 13,023 sf estate located on a steep hillside site in Los Angeles, CA. The site strategy combines existing sloped terrain with flat, stepped areas to enable a dichotomous and seemingly contradictory experience in which expansive views and nestled intimacy coexist.

Flatter moments help establish an estate feel while the architectural components higher above actively frame views (obliquely) below resulting in an opportunity for feeling both above the site itself and encased by the site environs. This duality extends throughout the concept in which views take place from within the buildings looking out, while views looking into the buildings are obscured.

Furthermore, the programmatic elements allow for both an extroverted entertainment lifestyle alongside an introverted and protected family environment by sequentially locating each element to achieve a complexity of sensation. The garage/recreation room acts as a buffer between the densities of neighboring residences to allow a gradient of privacy. Further away, the entryway axis forms a spatial delineation between public and private space.

Haus von Arx / Haberstroh Schneider

Posted on November 22, 2013 in Homes Design

Architects Haberstroh Schneider have designed this Haus von Arx in Binningen, Switzerland.

The former building – originally built in 1951 – had been extended, converted and renovated several times over the past years. As a consequence, it presented itself as an accumulation of heterogeneous rooms and styles.

In discussions with the new owner we developed the idea of reducing the building to both its original size and primary qualities. The dismantling of all the old additional elements called for a controlled addition of new expansions. These new volumes were clustered at the western side of the plot, touching the old building only in one place. While the old building had been freed from any disturbing elements and thus restored to its classic elegance, the new cubes present a composition of simple and plastically reduced volumes. The cubes, according to their different position, spacing and size, create fascinating passageway- and patio-situations with the old building.

To the south-western side of the plot we removed the former winter garden. In its place we constructed a generous, open garden pavilion which works well as mediating element between old building, pool area and the garden.

Tricycle House by People’s Industrial Design Office

Posted on in Architecture

Shown as part of the 2012 get it louder exhibition ‘the people’s future’ chinese studio people’s industrial design office visualized the ‘tricycle house’ as a response to the inability to own land in china. Through this design, single family homes can be affordable and sustainable, parking lots are not wasted at night, and traffic jams are acceptable.

The Tricycle House is man powered allowing off-the-grid living. Facilities in the house include a sink and stove, a bathtub, a water tank, and furniture that can transform from a bed to a dining table and bench to a bench and counter top. The sink, stove, and bathtub can collapse into the front wall of the house.

The ‘tricycle house’ is the result of an experiment using folded polypropoplene as a construction method. employing a CNC router each piece of the house is cut, scored flat, then creased and welded into shape. the house itself can therefore entirely open up to the outside, expand out like an accordion to increase space, and connect to other houses. the plastic is also translucent ensuring the interior is always well lit whether by the sun during the day or street lamps at night. the design is man-powered – allowing off-the-grid living with facilities in the house including a sink, stove, bathtub, water tank, and furniture that can transform from a bed to a dining table, bench and counter top. the sink, stove, and bathtub elements can collapse into the front wall of the house.

the firm also conceived the ‘tricycle garden’ to complements the ‘tricycle house’ and can be planted with not only grass but also trees and vegetables. the front of the plot doubles as tricycle seating in order to maximize green space, and several gardens can be combined to create a large public green space.

Enclosed Open House in Singapore by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Posted on August 30, 2013 in Homes Design

Located on the east coast of Singapore, this Enclosed Open House designed by Wallflower Architecture + Design recently has won an award from the 2010 SIA Architectural Design Awards in the “Individual House” category along with their Water-Cooled House. A spacious contemporary house with a fully fenced compound with a spatial program that internalizes spaces such as pools and gardens normally regarded as external to the envelope of the house.

The owners wanted a spacious, contemporary house that would be as open as possible but without compromising security and privacy at the same time. Surrounded by neighbours on four sides, the solution is a fully fenced compound with a spatial program that internalizes spaces such as pools and gardens normally regarded as external to the envelope of the house. By zoning spaces such as the bedrooms and servants’ quarters on alternative levels, i.e. 2nd storey and basement levels, the ground plane is freed from walls that would have been required if public and private programs were interlaced on the same plane. The see-through volumes allow a continuous, uninterrupted 40m view, from the entrance foyer and pool, through the formal living area to the internal garden courtyard and formal dining area in the second volume. All these spaces are perceived to be within the built enclosure of the house.

The environmental transparencies at ground level and between courtyards are important in passively cooling the house. All the courtyards have differing material finishes and therefore differing heat gain and latency (water, grass, water, granite). As long as there are temperature differences between courtyards, the living, dining, and pool house become conduits for breezes that move in between the courtyards, very much like how land and sea breezes are generated. At the second storey, solid hardwood louvers that can be adjusted by hand allow the desired amount of breeze and sunlight to filter through.

Environmentally, the contiguous and interconnected space encourage the slightest breezes, whether they are prevailing and therefore air-movement is horizontal, or convectionally circulated, which the courtyards help generate. For the owner, it is the experiential serenity that unencumbered space, a gentle breeze, dappled sunlight and the hush of water rippling on a pond that is priceless in our dense and busy urbanscape.
