Located near #Latina, not far from Rome, the Garden of Ninfa is known as one of the 10 most beautiful gardens in the world. Created in English garden style and immersed in uncontaminated nature, it hosts nearly 13,000 types of plants and trees such as magnolias, birches, Japanese maples, cherry trees, climbing roses, besides streams and a small river. The area around the garden is a WWF oasis from 1976. The garden can be visited only with a guide. 📸: @pepi_tina, @elenaradonicich, @roblove_sir, @robyrabs#architectanddesign
One of the UK’s leading product designers @LeeBroom recently presented one of his most significant exhibitions to date in Sydney, Australia with @SpaceFurniture. The landmark show was set within an underground car park, and the 4,000 square feet presentation is the largest show Lee Broom has created. ‘Park Life’ is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional garden park, taking the form of a maze, which guides guests on a poetic journey of discovery through hidden passageways, featuring 16 tableaux and vignettes showcasing Lee Broom’s lighting, furniture and accessories in a whole new light. 📸: Craig Wall.
Project of the Week: Located outside #SãoPaulo,#Brazil, Planar House was designed by @StudioMK27 in 2018. The 1000 square meters (10764 square feet) residence offers residents a variety of enclosed and open spaces underneath an imposing concrete roof covered in grass. The interiors are made of low and solid wood furniture and the layout of the spaces leaves enough space for free circulation between the furniture and the panels and allows for an individualized reading of each piece. A translucent multi-colored club-chair hanging from the slab becomes the focus of attention and contrasts with the horizontality of the house. Surrounding the rigid formal distribution, there is a vertical winding wall made of solid bricks arranged in solids and voids. Paradoxically, it defines the different relationships between the internal and external spaces. The wall, which is usually a symbol of division and isolation, in this project, is at times concave and at others convex, embracing the entrance garden and creating transparencies as well as offering protection from the street. Its brick texture contributes to a cozy atmosphere and creates light filters with kinetic effects as the day passes. 📸: @fernandogguerra#architectanddesign
Sangan is a small city located in the North-East of #Iran. Recently due to the discovery of an iron mine, its local commerce which was originally based on agriculture, product exchange and handicrafts, mostly shifted towards the development of steel factories. Even though these developments have had a positive impact on this town, still, it suffers from a lack of residential and hospitality functions for the mounting number of visitors. The project brief included designing a 20-story tower structure in a 50,000 m2 plot between Sangan and the industrial zone. The design challenge was to solve the contradiction between the high-rise structure proposed and the existing low rise urban fabric of Sangan. Furthermore, a destination hotel would negatively impact the locals’ vulnerable source of income and this would result in a pushback as well. Inside of the volume, is organized by a repetition of void spaces at different scales; a central yard acts like an oasis and performs as a public space for the hotel. The complex is surrounded by an interactive outdoor space which organized and protected by a perforated shelter that has the dynamic form of traditional primitive tent structures, made of local mat suitable for temporary local markets, certain businesses and activities. Using this typology as a reference, provided us with the contextual tools to lower the hotel tower and increase the footprint of the building to be more familiar and interactive with local people. #architectanddesign
