Landmak Architecture · HomeFood The project of HomeFood has been nurtured by the investor with an expectation to restore the purely natural and traditional farming methods of Vietnamese farmers. HOMEFOOD provides dishes and food cooked in line with the Macrobiotic diet and made 100% from plant-sourced, natural and organic ingredients. We have designed a restaurant based on the philosophy of HomeFood – which is renovated and expanded from part of an old building (headquarters of a state-owned company) built in the 1980s, located in a quiet and ancient quarter, and looking fairly old at the present time. In the area where there are many historical landmarks to Hanoians, the construction of any building makes local people (normally accustomed to tranquility) become curious and wonder what we are building.

With influences that are as far-reaching as classic Italian tailoring, streetwear, architecture and East Asian aes… ARCHIPROBA STUDIOS, Ilya Ivanov · DI_Telegraph The Central Telegraph is located on Tverskaya street in the center of Moscow. Architect Ivan Rerberg constructed the building in 1927, and it took only several decades for it to become an architectural monument. The Telegraph has an unusual perimeter structure with both modernist and constructivist features; its surprising geometry and broad glazing distinguishes the building against a background of the Stalinist empire style of that era. The DI_Telegraph space was originally used to send and receive wire telegrams and to provide other analog telecommunication services. At that time the room was full of equipment generating much heat, that is one of the reasons why its ceiling is seven meters high—hot steam was rising up to be pulled out by huge fans.

It invites to stay. Due to the steepness of the plot and the desire to contain the house in just one level, a three-dimensional structure of reinforced concrete slabs and screens adapting to the plot’s topography was chosen, thus minimizing the earthwork. This monolithic, stone-anchored structure generates a horizontal platform from the accessing level, where the house itself is located.

Superkilen / Topotek 1 + BIG Architects + Superflex Superkilen / Topotek 1 + BIG Architects + Superflex General descriptionSuperkilen is a half a mile long urban space wedging through one of the most ethnically diverse and socially challenged neighborhoods in Denmark. It has one overarching idea that it is conceived as a giant exhibition of urban best practice – a sort of collection of global found objects that come from 60 different nationalities of the people inhabiting the area surrounding it. Ranging from exercise gear from muscle beach LA to sewage drains from Israel, palm trees from China and neon signs from Qatar and Russia. Each object is accompanied by a small stainless plate inlaid in the ground describing the object, what it is and where it is from – in Danish and in the language(s) of its origin. A sort of surrealist collection of global urban diversity that in fact reflects the true nature of the local neighborhood – rather than perpetuating a petrified image of homogenous Denmark.
Empowering Architecture: architects, buildings, interior design, materials, jobs, competitions, design schools St. Ignatius Chapel by Dynerman Architects, pc Conceived as an elemental pavilion, the chapel’s design seeks to connect the celebrants to a dual past: a time when barns served as ancient churches and also to the later, more self-aware churches of the 15th century, whose manipulation of light served its mystical rites and themes. The architects aimed for a theme of rustic nobility, using a warm, minimal palette. The facade’s stucco walls are perforated with 8-inch slabs of glass and the floor of the chapel and courtyard is stained concrete.
