Ferrars St

Located at 144 Ferrars St, South Melbourne, this 5-storey commercial development designed for Ravensdown and Mr Shipping comprises four levels of workplace and a communal rooftop terrace, with car parking and a cafe and lobby to the ground floor. The architecture celebrates the unique characteristics of its Fishermans Bend context through triangular geometry, creating a defined street edge. Subtly curved corners and large aperture punctuate the north-facing facade, a nod to the owner’s connection to shipping and the nearby Docklands area. Column-free floorplates were achieved through the structural facade which uses a patterned precast concrete skin. This maximises the commercial space and allows for future flexibility. Richard...

One Marina Boulevard

One Marina Boulevard is a commercial building in the central business district of Singapore. Flexglo™ F16 LED light is chosen for the outdoor and indoor lighting projects because its high lumen output is great for indirect lighting and outlining architectures.

The bright functional lighting offers uniform and bright illumination for those on arrival and departure. Inside the lobby, the flexible lights are mounted inconspicuously where the curved ceiling and the light brown wall meet. The warm, soothing lighting goes well with the brown wall and makes those who step inside the hall feel welcomed while enhancing the aesthetics of the... More

Dolce Sitges

The brief comprised converting three contiguous rooms into a single room so that it could be used for large office meeting events or weddings while maintaining the option of using them separately. The fixed partitions that separated the central room from the adjacent rooms needed to be replaced by mobile phones that could allow their movement, while maintaining the current capacity if the Hotel required it.  Jump & Fly The appearance of the rooms is simple as the design do not want to distract the users of the event that going to take place. The aim was to design a naked box that the companies or wedding couples could dress up according to their needs, spicing the room up with their branding and display.  Jump & F... More

Sapphire 83

Sapphire 83 is a distinct example of a neighbourhood shopping complex that gives the user an opportunity to ‘shop while walking.’ The project is a combination of multiple amenities, including a Cinema hall run by INOX, 120 service apartments, almost 100 retail outlets and numerous family restaurants. As sustainability concerns are taking predominance and the need for safer public spaces is rising, our approach towards commercial spaces needs to provide a relevant solution. One of the unique models to explore is reflected in Sapphire's design language, straying away from the conventional malls and instead exploring the open-haat typology, thus promoting a sustainable design – access to multiple retail stores and safe open s...

Cavatina Concert Hall

This magnificent building in the heart of Lausanne's commercial centre was built in 1912 and has been listed as a note 2 on the inventory of historical monuments since 1975. It is twinned at the opposite corner of the street creating an iconic ensemble on Rue de Bourg. Thomas Jantscher Our intervention is focused on the entrance to Rue Lion d'Or 1 and the three upper levels of the building, which were formerly used for logistics and for the operation of the commercial surface of the emblematic Lausanne brand Annabelle. These were transformed to accommodate quality administrative spaces by strategically incorporating modern facilities while respecting the character of the building as much as possible.

Colony Square

Renewal of Colony Square, Atlanta's original mixed-use development, pulls retail and dining closer to the street with new contemporary additions, repurposes underperforming spaces, and invites the public into the previously insular site. Two new office buildings, a food hall, and theatre have reestablished the site as "Atlanta's living room." Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Colony Square is poised to become a premier cultural and entertainment destination within a burgeoning commercial, residential, and arts district. A central challenge was softening the hard edges and seemingly impenetrable buildings, which made circulation through the complex difficult. Our approach was to dissolve the barriers between Colony Square and the adj... More
