Kingsway College School Senior School

When Kingsway College School (KCS) decided to expand its curriculum to include grades 9-12, Architecture Counsel (ACi) was engaged to create an ambitious, phased master plan that would reflect the school’s unique vision and ambition.

SANAA revitalizes 19th century Parisian Art Nouveau department store with wavy glass facade and new interior street

An exterior cracked wall turns out a sleek interior curved glass for a cafe in Bangkok by ASWA (Architectural Studio of Work - Aholic) ©ASWA ASWA schemes aim to play with contrasting materials between the exterior and interior of the SNOG XX cafe. A rustic cracked concrete-like wall on two sides of the exterior tends to work contrastingly with a curved glass entrance and the polished stainless counter. Because the cafe is located on the second floor of the building and can easily notice on the street, then the priority is to make the cafe stands out from its surroundings by using a cracked concrete-like opening for the outer skin. ©ASWA Behind the cracked wall, the curved entrance with the stainless steel bench penetra...

Pimentel & Rohenkohl Advogados

This office comprises two large rooms for founder partners and five smaller ones, for associate partners. There are two meeting rooms, a rectangular one for 10 people, while the other, elliptical, for six. There are also the general lawyers’ office, the administrative area and the trainees’ workstations area. The office is served with six toilet rooms and a kitchen. The idea was to solve form and function by making the best from solar orientation and external views, so a system that emulates an urban tissue was defined. Private offices and meeting rooms comprise “blocks”, while internal and external circulations form “streets”. Reception, print sectors and meeting points form “squares”, from... More

Belsize Park 1

This is a luxurious renovation of a large detached Victorian villa in NW3 Belsize Park, North London. We were approached to transform a dilapidated property with 2 flats into a single-family dwelling. This included major works that only retained the four elevations with a new superstructure with services and a complete internal re-modelling of the property with a double garage. The brief was to create a contemporary home for a family of three with a drawing room, media room, open-plan kitchen, dining space, playroom, bespoke garden, wine cellar and five double bedrooms and bathrooms. We also gained planning for a full basement development below the existing footprint of the house and garden but that was never implemented. A daring double... More
