Internal conversion of a rural Belgian farmhouse strikes a balance between original and contemporary elements

For the internal conversion of a farmhouse in rural Afsnee, Ghent, JUMA Architects sought to strike a balance between the authentic elements of an existing farmhouse and a newly designed contemporary interior. The existing space was largely open and used primarily as an office area. JUMA began by introducing a logical sequence of warmly finished living areas to the open volume. Annick Vernimmen The original entrance was moved to a location near the central staircase that connects the ground floor with the first floor. To define space while preserving the open nature of the building, black-stained vertical wooden slats were located behind a natural stone drawer unit – partitioning the entrance and office. A raised dark polis... More

The Seafront Apartment

In a dense city like Singapore, apartments that are privy to good views are highly treasured. As such, the gorgeous sea view that this apartment in East Coast offers is something that the homeowner loves. The interior design brief may have been simple – to create a resort-themed home to match the panoramic view – but there is nothing ordinary about this space. The completed space bears no traces of the typical Balinese or rustic look. With its crisp colours and contemporary furnishings, the apartment is a swanky seafront abode. On the ceiling in the living room is a “fresco” of sorts, consisting of wall coverings depicting dramatic tropical foliage. A palette of natural finishes gives this home a breezy feel. These... More

Bukit Panjang Apartment

While different in personalities, the two brothers share a preference for a minimalist home with distinct elements. For the design of this 400m2 5-room resale apartment in Singapore, we proposed the use of the colour black as a thematic element given its toned-down masculine and modern qualities. The colour is strategically balanced with other contrasting blocks of colour such as blues and browns to break up the otherwise claustrophobic effect, creating spatial highlights against the overall neutral backdrop. Minimalist yet sensuous, the design also addresses the homeowners’ storage needs and aesthetic tastes without feeling too confined. For one of the brothers who is passionate about cooking, additional storage spaces were created t... More

ARCHI

Archi is a reproduction of the CM 194 HD fireside chair and CM 195 HD armchair (designed by Pierre Paulin in 1955) which pays homage to their timeless design and the perfection of their 'comfort curve', which perfectly embraces the body of the sitter. The seat part appears to be suspended on its ethereal base. Here one finds, between the seat and feet, the inverse symmetry so beloved of Pierre Paulin. From all this he brings a nervous, aerodynamic modernity. The comfort is perfect: the generous slope of the seat, the ergonomic design of the curving seat-back which support the body precisely and yet gently thanks to the qualities of the Bultex foams used, and to the elastic webbed suspension on the seat and back. The high ear-shaped back all... More

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.

Safari Residential Apartment

Text description provided by the architects. The Safari Residential Project is located at the southeast of Shiraz, one of the oldest part of the city. Today, the attention of the architects in the city is more focused on the wealthy areas and there is a lack of innovative projects in such poor areas. The site context’s situation is in decline, and architecture is being oblivious, which has affected the city fabric structure and visual aspect of the region. To this end, the initial perspective on the creation of this project is a slight attempt to revive the recession situation of the design site.The idea of the design was based on creating a connecting and reliant element on all floors. This central element, which is in the inner shell of t... More

RamenYa 1000Wat Emporium Melbourne

RamenYa is a chain of Japanese ramen noodle shops in Melbourne and the chain unveiled its flagship restaurant in Emporium Melbourne. A unique aspect of this project was the inclusion of a second restaurant, 1000wat, in a shared context where both brands operate under one roof. This space doubles as an incubator for 1000wat, announcing its maiden foray onto the local food scene.The brief called for a design which was robust to cater to both restaurants by relaying a clear separation of the restaurants’ brand, and unify these elements under a single architectural gesture. It was important that the 2 restaurants retained features that defined their individual identities without condensing them into a ‘mini food-court’.The main design gest... More

So the atmosphere was carefully constructed to represent an understated elegance with a touch of comfort in the mix. Moreov... More
