Located in a popular ski resort in the Toggenburg region, which is also home to hiking trails in the summer, the view it offers spans six countries. Since 1972, the breathtaking region has been accessible by cable car, one hour away from Zurich. In the plateau where Chäserrugg meets Hinterrugg and Rosenboden sits a summit station, which used to house the construction workers who completed the cable car. Herzog & de Meuron .

Elektra Bakery / Studioprototype Architects. Architects: Studioprototype Architects Location: Edessa, Greece Project area: 35 sqm Project year: 2009 Photographs: Spyros Paloukis This shop is part of a chain of family-run bakeries called ‘Elektra’ located in Edessa, Greece.
Studioprototype had the opportunity to redefine the look of its shops with this pilot project. The shop is small, covering only thirty-five square metres and occupies a strategic corner on the main pedestrian high street. Working with a narrow, linear floor plan a rigorous language was developed for the shop based on a long marble food counter acting as a monolithic focal point of the spatial arrangement. Light and luminosity flood the interior of the bakery accentuating the food items on display. A sense of craftsmanship is imbued with the exterior of the shop clad in vertical cedar boards. Carefully selected furniture by Xavier Pauchard and lights by Tom Dixon completes the overall composition. Restaurant at Greenville / DSA+s.

Panca Putra Mandiri Site Area: 648.7 sqm Project Area: 148 sqm Project Year: 2009-2010 Photographs: Courtesy of DSA+s The owner of this restaurant was dreamed of having an outdoor Japanese Noodle restaurant. But he realized that it is not usual, and for preventing a great loss, he commissioned us to design an outdoor and temporary restaurant that hopefully would be easily to be built/assembled and also easily to be disassembled. Those requests directly inspired us to take Bamboo as our main material for the restaurant. And we planned to use Bamboo for the whole building structure and building skin. The form of restaurant basically was inspired by an umbrella.
Santa Marta Restaurant / Studio Kuadra. Architects: Studio Kuadra Location: Mazze, Italy Project Area: 110 sqm each floor Project Year: 2009 Photographs: Photophilla The chapel, located in the historical quarter of Mazzè, is part of the religious complex of the parish church built in the 18th century. The project consisted of the restoration of the chapel and its conversion into a restaurant. The building has three floors. The ground floor was separate from the chapel above and used for storage.
Now it is the main entrance to the restaurant; there is a bar, the kitchen and the toilets. The first floor (the old chapel) has been transformed into the main dining room. The gallery framework is in steel with wood flooring. The dining room can be seen through two openigs which give onto small balconies. The balustrading is composed of glass and fixed to the floor. The stairs and gallery structure is made of metal painted white, and floor furniture and tables of wengè. Petit Cabanon Cafe / Ternullomelo Arquitectos.

Project Area: 2,460 sqm Project Year: 2010 Photographs: Shu He The restaurant is located on the top floor of a superstore in the new town area of Hangzhou, with 9-meter high story height and a broad view to the south. Composite bamboo boards are selected as the main material, conveying the design theme of combining tradition and modernity.
In the hall, to take advantage of the story height, some of the private rooms are suspended from the roof and creating an interactive atmosphere between the upper and lower levels, thus enriching the visual enjoyments. The original building condition has a core column and several semi-oval blocks which essentially disorganized the space.
The entrance hall also follows the theme of bamboo. Ortiga / Donovan Hill. Theodor Restaurant / SO Architecture. Café/Pastry Shop in Sintra / extrastudio.
