Spark Lodges at YDD Resort

    The project was initiated due to the popularity of summer river-trekking at Jinkeng Village, a chill-out place where people would love to find a comfortable lodge to stay overnight compared to a tent. Given the fact that the village is part of Liuyang (Hunan, China), a city world-renowned for its fireworks industry, the concept of fusing contemporary industrial materials with natural and rural surroundings began to take shape. EERI EERI EERI EERI     The translucent polycarbonate panels on the roof are the most eye-catching feature of the exterior. This inexpensive material displays different visual textures at different angles and lighting conditions, forming the profile together with pine plank... More

Zeus is Loose

The construction of a contemporary hostel in the most central square of Thessaloniki was a special challenge that required proper design, modern aesthetics and the assurance of maximum comfort for the visitors that would choose to stay there.

A guest in the woods

Set in the tranquil woodlands of Soest in the Dutch province of Utrecht, this hostel and hospitality complex was formerly comprised of ad hoc additions which lacked a clear visual order. To draw out the inherent aesthetic qualities of the historic buildings and establish a clear cohesion between the functions of the complex, P·A's strategy included both demolition of underfunctioning buildings, and the subtle introduction of a new form. The historic buildings have been fully restored, and their connection to each other enhanced through the insertion of a new build element with wood finishing that gently contrasts with the brick of the historic forms, and blends with the surrounding woods. Its L-shaped form carves a courtyard in the... More

JO&JOE Paris Gentilly

JO&JOE Paris Gentilly is the second JO&JOE open house from PENSON’s portfolio and is the world’s first BBCA low-carbon hotel. It is a place that brings genuine experiences to its guests – so much so – the hotel was fully booked on its first opening month in April 2019.    PENSON created the seven-floor, 485-bed hotel as a hybrid – it meets somewhere between an open house, a hotel, and a hostel. This model is unlike anything the sector has seen to date.    In September 2020, JO&JOE Paris Gentilly was awarded the Best Hotel & Tourism Resort at the 2020 MIPIM Awards - specifically for its Open House design and Street Art concept by PENSON.   The JO&JOE brand was c...

It is nestled in an existing 2-story late 1800’s stone building and a mid-century brick warehouse right in the middle of the upcoming transit-oriented development adjacent to downtown.We sought to preserve the history but create something culturally conducive for the current and future generations.

Fabrika Tbilisi

The SiteFabrika is located in a historic neighborhood which has been a central but less popular part of the city. Before the revitalization of the place, the building of the sewing factory that was operating during the soviet time was abandoned for the decades with no use to the neighborhood and society. The district was also unpopular as the destination for travelers or locals. The starting point was to analyze the urban context where the project could bring multiple benefits for the area: increase its publicity and influence the economic and social life of the neighborhood. Creation of a new hotspot and thus, improving the attractiveness of the area was one of the main objectives.Fabrika has become unique experience for Tbilisi in the con... More
