Stories Tailoring Varteks

One hundred years of Varteks conveyed through 14 appealing stories We shaped the exhibition using the materials and the stories that Varteks used to build itself over the course of more than 100 years of its existence. The physical design elements of the exhibition are represented by textiles that create zones, and each zone is a story which gives shape to what we remember best about Varteks and brings an insight into the future of this fashion house. Each story captures the visitor for a few minutes, and it immerses them into a moment from the history of Varteks, be it when the company was concluding global collaborations or when it was building its brand through striking posters and advertisements.

Daarbast Cafe

Daarbast Café is about 376 square meters. The main goal of its interior design is creating social interaction among people. The possibility for establishing other branches of the café in future was considered in order to fulfill the owner’s request. Scaffolds are used as the main structure of design which grants an identity to the space. A part of the exterior wall is destroyed to benefit from sun light and natural views. The scaffold provided the context in which we could increase the area of the space and create visual transparency. Implementing the scaffolds not only impose low budget to the project but also create the possibility of various decoration fashions. There are different forms of settings in the café, made with scaffolds.Lead... More

Auditorium and park in Albignasego

The project develops from a deep analysis of the existing context. The site is flat, characterized by cultivated areas that give strong lines to the landscape. The buildings surrounding the site are mostly small residential settlements with pitched roofs. In the distance there is the presence of the Euganean hills, with which the building will relate.The project is organized in an organic and not invasive way, respecting the natural environment and the previous settlements, but at the same time firmly declares its existence, "a strong silent presence".The alternating combination of natural and "contemporary" elements constitute the strong point of the project, characterized by simple shapes that are boldly integrated with the countryside an...

1149 Broadway – New York, USA

The building on 1149 Broadway has a long history. At the end of the 19th century it was a confectionery factory and later it became the headquarters of a local automobile brand. After a considerable period of abandon in the 20th century it now has to be re-established in order to be rented once again. The building plan is narrow and long, which makes the interior quite dark. The only natural light comes from the windows on the main façade and the small openings towards the backyard. The client’s will is to transform the ground floor into a piano bar which will perfectly integrate the surrounding artistic neighborhood. The upper floors will become an office for a local industrial design brand. The project uses very few materials in order to... More

Home of roman culture – Nîmes, France

The city of Nîmes needs a new museum for its roman artefacts. The archaeological museum has no more space for them and there is an entire collection of restored pieces waiting to be exposed. The strong presence of roman culture in the city guides the city towards the idea of building an entire “home” for it: a place where one can not only visit the museum but can also read about roman culture, study it and share with others about it. The selected plot is located next to the Arena of Nîmes, the biggest roman artefact in the city as well as one of the most well preserved roman arenas in the world. Like other roman buildings in the city its simple geometric shape disconnects it from the surrounding urban network. Those observations lead to the... More

Cultural center – Vienna, Austria

The project for a new cultural center in Vienna aims to combine various cultural, urbanistic and landscape objectives. The chosen site, the artificial isle Donauinsel, separates the Danube river form the channel. It also divides the city in two parts: to the southwest there is the old town, the city center, an active cultural pole and a symbol of the Vienna Secession. To the northeast there is the new business pole Stadlau, with skyscrapers built in steel and glass. Donauinsel is a beautiful place where people come to walk their pets or to do some sport. It has wonderful views to both the old town and the business center. But its distance from them keeps its status of a transition space where only few people go. That is why the place was ch... More

the delicate apartment

We named this project “the delicate” apartment because every part of it is very special and carefully designed. This 89 square meter apartment was created in 2016 and is located at the center of Prishtina, Kosovo. Given that it is a new building, our focus was to design the elements inside the apartment in a creative way, so that the space and the product usage would be optimized. The kitchen, winery, the coffee table, chairs, TV set, the library and everything else are handmade and are designed especially for this apartment. Our clients agreed to our proposal not to use doors to separate the living room from the hallway so that there would be a better flow. They were newlyweds and had a special request, to have a corner for the wines. To t... More
