Project • By SuperhouseResidential Landscape

Superhouse

Superhouse is a brand and an ethos – a vision for what is possible in contemporary residential architecture. Superhouse want to create nothing but the 30 most exceptional houses in the world for the super-rich. Superhouse has been created by Magnus Ström, founder of Ström Architects, based on the South coast of England. Inspiration for the Superhouse concept first came when Ström worked next to a world-renowned naval architect. This was when Superyachts were first brought to his attention, and it raised the questions: “Why couldn’t houses also reach the same heights of design quality and workmanship?” and “Why do ‘Superyachts’ exist, but ‘Superhouses’ don’t?”Superhouse's mission is to design such houses, and focus solely on their creation w...

Stones Gambling Hall

Stones is a 25,450 square foot gambling hall, restaurant, and bar – in essence a boutique casino.

CUBE HOUSE

IT Un cubo di vetro attorno a cui si definiscono gli ambienti è il fulcro del nuovo progetto di Noses. In esso si nascondono gli spazi necessari alle attività quotidiani tipiche di un ecosistema familiare: cucina, bagno, ma anche armadi e librerie. Il cubo annuncia la sua presenza imperante nell'appartamento attraverso il suo colore scuro, ma, allo stesso tempo, si dissimula riflettendo sulle sue superfici gli altri elementi d'arredo. Fa da padrone il legno che, caldo ed accogliente, riveste pavimento e soffitto restituendo allo spazio un temperamento naturale. In netto contrasto con il bianco luminoso delle pareti, si impone a sorpresa il blu cobalto del bagno, che evoca un angolo di cielo all'interno del cubo di vetro. La scelta dell... More

Project • By Si-XSecondary Schools

Ezinge

For the education park Ezinge, designed by Atelier PRO architekten, Driessen + Van Deijne made a design of digitally printed glass. The facades, with the dimensions 11 x 21 meter and 18 x 21 meter, opposed to each other, accompany a centrally positioned rising ‘tower’. This part of the building is at the heart of a field, a location for ‘CKV’ subjects, as fine arts, design, music and theatre. Creativity and imagination play a key role in the vision on education within the school community of Ezinge. The education philosophy, the function and the location were leading for the designed plan Driessen + Van Deijne made. Both glass facades feature a strong related but unique image. The intriguing image is not easy accessible for... More
