Flooring with character.PANDOMO Loft is a further development of the well-establishedPANDOMO Floor and was created as a result of its solid andextremely durable structure for floors bearing large loads,especially in public industrial areas.But PANDOMO Loft has also proved itself in private use as itsunique texture and consistency allows for an almost infiniterange of applications.It is here that the newest innovation in PANDOMO decorativefillers is able to prove its exceptional quality: e.g. the largescale application of a mineral top layer can be applied thinly(approx. 2 mm) with PANDOMO Loft, meaning that the heightadjustment of fixtures and doors becomes superfluous.

Strongly rooted in site, Peach Hut’s form and colour are inspired by surrounding orchard trees

To facilitate culture and art education in the rural region of Xiuwu, Henan, China, a series of miniature pavilions were constructed in different locations to serve the vast 630 square kilometre county area. Designed by Atelier XI, the cast-in-place concrete structures take on tree-like forms that reach out to the sky. Their locations vary from fields to forests to mountaintops, with their forms differing in response. Zhang Chao ‘Peach Hut’ is the first completed miniature pavilion. Surrounded by farmland, the form of the pavilion is inspired by the site’s peach orchard trees, which lean to one side.  Atelier XI arhitects explain they envisioned the building being cut from a series of invisible arcs derived from...

Hotel Tepoztlan

Au milieu de la végétation exotique et du mysticisme, l'hôtel Tepoztlan se trouve sur ce qui était autrefois un terrain abandonné où la végétation sauvage avait déjà pris possession et où des arbres anciens flanquaient l'entrée principale d'une topographie accidentée.   Imaginée et créée par le studio Taller Carlos Marín and Pasquinel, l'oasis de terre cuite qui abrite 11 chambres est diluée dans 4 volumes qui permettent une disposition équilibrée du programme de l'hôtel et du paysage environnant.   En entrant, une imposante agrafe de béton pigmenté s'entrelace avec les...

Projet • By STEVENVANDENBORRE ArchitectenBibliothèques


Eksaarde, a village part of the City of Lokeren needed a new recognition point. A place to gather. A place where one could meet. The program: a kindergarten and a library. Close to the villages’ center, family houses, schools, an elderly home,  the site rather feels like a park. We wanted to create a project, very subtle embedded in the park. A building that feels like it was already there but above all,one that was open to the public. Even more, a building that creates opportunities to meet. The program of the building feels at first sight very contradictory. At one side the library.   A place that is rather quiet but open. At the other side the kindergarten. Very strictly regulated but noisy and playful. We combined th... En savoir plus

Jane Hope Residence

Exemplifying the versatility of Banker Wire’s architectural mesh in residential applications, designer and homeowner Jane Hope, incorporated an antique plated SZ-3 wire mesh within the design of her custom fireplace. Thoughtfully selected for its unique semi-transparent characteristics, the metal mesh compliments the honest, raw material design, creating a feature that is instantly recognized for its sleek form and striking aesthetic. Because the fireplace is the focal point in the center of the space, Jane Hope was looking for a material that would allow the light to pass through the top portion of the unit, while maintaining a similar visual heft that the other materials in the room—wood, concrete and stone—provide. She... En savoir plus
