Studios and housing for artists «Up»

Creative process is a way of creating something new and unique. Achieving the pinnacle of his /her skills an artist constantly moves up and forward. The project slogans are «painting on the walls is allowed!», «be yourself (crossed out) better version of you», «you are unique individual!» The Big Idea is the idea of white box. Nobody knows what is inside. Maybe it’s a gift. Or a package. Or… It is a building-box. The box where ideas and products of intellectual labor are. The entrance to the box presents itself half-raised curtain. One can look inside and see the process of creation. The facade of the building is framed with bright perforated metal panels that look like curled sheets of pap... More

E-Shochu is a company which envisions the deepening of Japan-Thai relations and interactions through the increased exposure of Japanese Liquor into the Thai market.  In keeping with that vision, this time the company is planning for a new retail outlet which aims not just to engage in liquor sales but also become the place for communicating the latest news in the industry as well as be the de-facto destination for Japanese liquor enthusiasts to gather.   We therefore proposed the creation of the Sake Forest (Japanese お酒の森) as a space to exhibit  the rich variety and style of liquor lineup comprising of Japanese Sake and Shochu, which are arranged metaphorically into a forest; liquor bottles standing proudly just like trees...

Baba Yaga`s Hut On Chicken Feet

Introduction   It’s difficult to find a place for comfortable life in contemporary cities. Global urbanization and decrease in the number of really affordable housing are the modern tendencies. Although the idea of constructing more low-rise buildings was recognized prospective and humane, developers often don’t follow these rules, and the cities continue to grow upwards and to press with their giant scale upon the citizens. Also the idea of coliving is developing. But it is not appropriate for everyone; the sad experience in the use of dormitories and communal apartments in the Soviet Union proves it completely. Coliving is more suitable for very young people under 25 years. There are also some problems with work space.... More

METU ArchLabs: PCLab

Roots: A Modern Inheritance to Foster InnovationAs a pioneering example of modernist architecture in Turkey, the Faculty of Architecture building holds an important place both in the tradition of the university and in the architectural history of the country. The building is designed by Altuğ and Behruz Çinici with their competition winning project in 1961. The design stands out with its courageous attitude to merge work space with social life in order to foster innovation.Re-Claiming VersatilityThe significance of the building led to a conceptualization of the architectural intervention as a "stripping-down-to-basics" operation, leaving the concrete structural elements as thetabula rasa. Starting from this naked state, the spaces are re-in... More

House and Workshop for an Artist

The requirement was a building that would accommodate an artist’s studio and residential space for occasional use as a weekend house. The 1.500 sqm site is located in Peñalolén, a suburban district with low construction density, and neighbors some undeveloped sites. This condition leaves the building very exposed to its surroundings, so the client required that the project would limit the exposure of the interior spaces and provide privacy. The project also had to be capable of becoming an exclusively residential building at a future time, so it needed spaces to allow new uses and an extension to be planned.The privacy of interior spaces was addressed by limiting and directing the views to and from the exterior. This was accomplished by arr... More

Prangl Headquarters, Premstätten

The existing sites were bursting at the seams. Graz and Vienna are built from scratch and geared towards the future. On the basis of an optimized logistic the new headquarters create identity to the outside well as to the inside.Recognisability is essential for the experience of identity. For us the task of the object is to emphasize the essential assets – the machines. The colouring of the building is inspired by this idea and stands back in silver grey, the Prangl yellow just shows in a fine trace. We provide the vehicles, cranes and work platforms with lots of space. The core of the site - the administration – is kept central but small. The pending head building is the visual highlight. The fixed sun protection lamellas give the façade... More
