Le Dôme winery blends 40-meter diameter timber dome into the rolling vineyards of Bordeaux

Owner of internationally renowned winehouse Le Dôme was immediately impressed by meeting Norman Foster who sketched the basic design of the building on the spot. The idea was clear from the start. A building that blends into its landscape and looks simultaneously inwards and outwards. Nigel Young The circular building is defined by a 40-meter diameter timber dome. The roof is supported by sloping beams that span over a large column-free space. At the center a 6-meter-wide oculus lets in natural light into the upper level.

CP Residence

Designed by Studionine Architects, this residence in suburban Ahmedabad revels in delicate tracery and the warmth of natural light. As a response to the client’s needs of simplicity, low-maintenance and soothing spaces, this home, designed specifically for an elderly couple unfolds through simple, efficient planning.    Beginning with a compact site of 1365 sq. Ft.(37’x37’), the architects transformed the constraints of space through a play of interconnected volumes and double-heighted spaces vertically across the floor plates. Using embedded knowledge and traditional building science of Vastu Shastra, the internal zoning and articulation was planned effectively for this south-facing house. The house is essenti...

Appartement S

Comment aménager un appartement, un bureau, un studio pour un hôte de passage, et un lieu d’exposition pour une collection de plantes exotiques, dans à peine 36 m² et un budget travaux restreint? Le projet résulte de la recherche d’une typologie dynamique capable d’optimiser surface et volume par rapport à la complexité du programme. Espaces et usages sont travaillés par superposition et permutation plutôt que fragmentation et répartition.   Un espace ouvert et continu s’insère entre un noyau technique, volume d’articulation entre le plein et le vide, entre le sombre et le lumineux, entre le collectif et l’intime, et un balcon...

Bread & Butterfly

Our client, a celebrated local chef and James Beard semi-finalist, asked us to help realize his latest venture, an intimate neighborhood café with an emphasis on wine and small plates. The name Bread & Butterfly is borrowed from the imaginative character created by Lewis Carroll in his novel Through the Looking Glass. The restaurant is located in a new mixed-use development located in Inman Park, and the name also refers to the historic neighborhood’s symbol, the butterfly. Inspired by the small cafés lining the streets of Paris, the design features a paneled main dining room and bar with casual seating that spills out onto a cozy porch and sidewalk. We designed custom steel doors that fully open up the interior to t... En savoir plus
