A cool Ayres Retail Store located in El Solar de la Abada Mall, Buenos Aires, Argentina. This new retail store was designed by Dieguez Fridman architects. The unfolded idea wraps around the store draws the attention from the visitors, that creating a sense of welcoming to the store. The geometry itself expresses the sensuality and amutating infatuation with each perspective changes.
From the architects :
Through a faceted form that unfolds in the store, the project explores the ambiguity between object and container. The form defines itself through its’ contrast of textures, colors and geometry with the container. By approaching it and blending with it at the certain points, and separating from it at others, the space for clothes display and fitting rooms is generated.

Designed by The Danish architects Lundgaard & Tranberg. The residential project of Harbour Isle apartment occupies a unique location on a harbour island in a former industrial area, close to both park areas and the centre of Copenhagen. To make best of the exceptional location, the project is divided into smaller building volumes, relating to views, solar exposure, and harbour.
In addition to providing unobstructed view sight lines for each unit, the design creates a variation in apartment types and the corresponding balconies. Staggered projecting bays with corner windows provide panoramas of harbour and city, while also screening views from neighbours, insuring the privacy of each apartment.
The project consists of 236 exclusive apartments with an average area of 101 m2/1.087 ft2, consisting primarily of two and three bedroom apartments, a small portion of which are two levels. The entire project, including the projecting bays, is rendered in warm white stucco, while the fenestration has teak profiles.

This Master Bathroom Renovation Project was designed by Bryan Boyer, located San Luis Obispo County CA with 215 square feet area, this bathroom renovation project in Ranch Style Home was completed in 2009.
Located amongst 5000 walnut trees dotting a farm in California's rural Central Coast, this master bathroom renovation is conceptualized as the literal, concentrated heart of the orchard. Here, walnut and stone — crop and soil — are played off of each other as two wrapping surfaces that form the interior space of the bathroom.
A floor of natural black slate folds up to create a walk-in shower which then gives way to a curving wall of book-matched Walnut veneer to form the toilet room, closet, and a seating nook. At the center of the room stands a solid walnut island. The basin itself is milled from the wood to form the sink. A large storage area opens like a car-hood to reveal easy access to daily hygiene items while hiding the clutter when not in use.
Carapicuiba House is located in topographical terms Carapicuíba, SP, Brazil and was designed by Angelo Bucci, Alvaro Puntoni. From the street, we cannot clearly see its ground level because the ground surface falls abruptly into a little valley and woods: a stage 6 m below. The program joins two different purposes: a house and an office, it is a place to both live and work. Although these two functions share the same space, it is as separate as possible.
The different levels offered by the site were utilized to arrange the two main programs. The street level was kept free of any enclosed space, it is a kind of “pilotis” with two different areas: the first one is on the ground, very close to the street, and the other one is aerial, as a roof terrace over the building. A bridge, made of steel, connects these two areas. The only entrance to the building is the bridge with its steel grid floor that leads over the open space: downstairs to the house or upstairs to the office.
The Carapicuiba house is divided into two levels, both below the street level. Its spaces are integrated with the woods, valley, gardens, and pool located at the ground level. The Carapicuiba house incorporates the outside nature indoors: a sliding glass door opens the living room into the terrace,creating one large space.
The bedroom and the patios can also be integrated at the lower level. From the street level, the office is located upstairs. Its dimensions, 3 m wide and 25 m long, making it look like a tube open at both extremities.
Therefore, the windows offer new views: more landscape than patios, and more panoramic than an intimate space. The “tube” only rests over two columns. Reinforced concrete supports the whole building. Besides its materials, concrete and glass, this carapicuiba house is essentially designed based on the site’s geography and landscape. So few elements mean more concentration on the required work during its construction process. It makes it easier to control the budget and it help us focus on the necessary steps to build the carapicuiba house.
An interesting Frame Bar Interior Design created by architects Dimitris Tsigos. Frame Bar is the main bar of the st George lycabettus hotel, located in kolonaki, Athens. The main goal of the Frame Bar Interior Design was to recreate the usual typologies of chairs, benches, bars stands, tables and coffee tables using forms that morph from one geometry to the other, thus denying determined typology – activity associations.
This was achieved by using advanced parametric design techniques which led to the specification of a series of poly – surfaces, ultimately constructed out of thermo – formed staron. The geometrical continuity is retained throughout the design, ultimately offering a continuous interior topography that assumes different geometrical specifications in relation to specific programmatic intentions. The main materials used are heat-formed starron (corrian equivalent) and the Spanish marble known as emperador.
