Tatlin

Constructed in 1927 by the civil engineer V. Patek, the original “Telephone Exchange'' building at Number 5 Bakuniskaya Street is a classic example of Russian industrial constructivism. It is one of three identical buildings in Moscow. The four-story, T-shaped structure has not been used since digital telecommunications were introduced in the city and has been falling into decay for two decades.  Constructivism is the only unique Soviet-Russian grand architectural style, akin to the  Bauhaus school.  Many buildings in Western Europe were designed by students of this movement, including notable Soviet émigré Berthold Lubetkin. These architects applied the emerging method and style of the VKHUTEMAS school t... More

Klil Bauhouse

Transparence Minimalism in a Retro Sense Studio Samuelov has been designing Klil’s showrooms for many years. In 2020 an updated was needed to fit to the new Bauhaus series, and the story we have chosen in the showroom design showcase the style’s values: precise minimalism, functionality and a retro sense. The challenge in the design process was telling a story about an almost invisible product, a window that’s simply combines thin aluminum and a transparent glass, that practically blends into the space.   The creative solution was to highlight this specific quality, giving the product an interesting quiet appearance, allowing the store’s customers to walk through it. We decided to highlight the transparency an... More

Exquisite furnishings and sustainable comfort unite to form a sophisticated structure. Reconstruction and extension of a 1930s villa Preserving the character of the existing building in Berlin-Dahlem was not only a requirement of the local authority; it was also a concern of the design-oriented property developer.

A Minimalist Geometric Home

A large single-storey home features a restrained aesthetic "I've always been trying to apply the principle of subtraction to design practices, so as to accentuate people's sensory experiences in the space. I seek pleasure in architectural practices, and work to create minimalist art."   — Xie Peihe Background Situated at the CBD of Shantou, this single-storey luxury residence embraces the river view outside. Spanning 300 square meters, the space is like a piece of white curtain, which opens up a free field for people to experience. The project draws inspiration from the visual presentation of performances on stage. We turned the white space into a serene backdrop and stage for the occupants, with the details and dotted brigh...

Villa Leitner

This modern flat roof villa, designed for a family of four in Pfaffenhofen, Germany, was awarded the first prize in the competition "House of the Year", organized by Europe's biggest living magazine "Schöner Wohnen". With its formal references to the “Bauhaus”, the L-shaped building impresses by its large glass fronts, through which light and air gain access inside. This impressed the jury as well as "the modern interpretation of the wood panel construction, whose weather-independent, accurate and fast prefabrication of quality is not to beat." Fairfaced concrete, wood and glass dominate the aesthetic simplicity of the building, accentuated by elements such as the historic cast-iron pillar in the living area. This was deli... More

Nordholt

This complex and fascinating puzzle of different cubes evolves on a sloping clearing in the forest near Frankfurt, Germany. The basic idea of the design uses the sightlines of two old trees standing on the property and benefits, apart from the general views of the surrounding nature, also from the skyline of Frankfurt. Along these lines of sight, cubes of different proportion are piled up around the central core of the staircase. With a height of nine metres throughout the entire building, this “heart of the house” serves as an exhibition space for the client’s alternating artwork, exposed through a skylight. The two-storey housing cube, stretching into the sky, contains a 6-meter library wall and an equally high window... More

Atelier Luxury Apartments Landscape

Real estate developer Carmel Partners awarded Surfacedesign creative control of the outside living spaces at its luxury apartment project Atelier, designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz.  Taking inspiration from the building’s proximity to the former Los Angeles Garment District, Surfacedesign’s overall approach was influenced by the Bauhaus textile patterns of Anni Albers.  Geometrical lines and shapes are repeated throughout the 33-story project’s two outdoor living spaces: pool/amenity deck and rooftop lounge.  Surfacedesign injected the textile inspiration into the composition, stitching together the hardscape with a rich landscape of native and Mediterranean plantings.   Atelier&rsq...
