HB Trapper & Stål manufactures most parts for their HQ redesign by BIG on-site

The new HB Trapper & Stål’s HQ is a showcase of their steel manufacturing capabilities. The company who primarily manufactures steel stairs and balconies, has expanded into bespoke wall, floor, and ceiling solutions.

La Calma House: An expressive concrete shelter in the woods

Located just outside Barcelona on a steeply sloping forested site, La Calma House by Ramon Esteve Estudio provides a sheltered place of refuge where one can retreat from the busy pace of city life. The home’s heavy exterior walls form a protective shell, sheltering the living space from the access road and neighbouring properties while expansively opening the main living space up to the surrounding trees and sloping landscape. Mariela Apollonio In response to the steep slope, the house volume is compact with outside terraces designed to accommodate a pool, barbeque area and several gardens. The colour of the concrete, an off-white, blends with the local stone that surrounds while wood and corten steel accents highlight the tones... En savoir plus

Raft Sloboda

The Raft Sloboda is located in Belgrade, at the delta of the Sava and the Danube rivers. As there was no particular location at the beginninig of the process (we just knew the raft would be on the river), it seemed to us that old and rusrty industry boats, that pervade whole coastal area, suited best to tihs strand. Caption We decided that the raft should be made of rasty steel and unpretentiously take a posture of an old timer and, thanks to its charm, offer warm athmosphere to its future visitors. Naturally, its design is subordinated to modern architecture and modern users'needs. One of the input data was the purpose of the facility. It was intended for the Disco Raft Sloboda to change the athmospheres throughout the day - from af... En savoir plus

Ferrum 1 Business Centre among the first buildings in Russia to be constructed with a sculptural Corten steel facade

Situated on the historic site of the former Rossiya factory in St Petersburg, office building Ferrum 1 (Block 16) by TCHOBAN VOSS Architekten is one of the first buildings in Russia to be constructed with a sculptural Corten steel façade.

RC House

With a privileged view of the ponds and woods of Fazenda Boa Vista, in Porto Feliz, Sao Paulo, in Brazil, the Boa Vista RC house was designed to see the sun all day long in the leisure area. In the 950 m² of constructed area, the authorial design of architects Caio Bandeira and Tiago Martins, from Architects+Co, stands out. Fernando Guerra The façade reveals the Arc+Co wood panel, an element that allies aesthetics, allows ventilation and natural light in the environments, while guaranteeing privacy to the interiors. With organic paging that takes advantage of the wood scraps cut during the manufacturing process, it is also an ecological panel, since it reduces, with design, the waste of material.

Lazy House

L'idée de la maison va au-delà de sa forme physique et se construit de l'intérieur vers l'extérieur sur le principe de la connexion spatiale avec l'environnement dont elle est issue et qu'elle surplombe. Le concept est basé sur la relation entre la maison et la ville, la maison et le jardin, et le jardin et la ville. Ce schéma relationnel se répète à l'intérieur de la maison. La partie commune intérieure qui traverse toute la maison se prolonge vers l'extérieur et toutes les parties privées séparées ont leurs propres relations extraverties. L'apparence visuelle de la maison est définie par sa nature intérieure et la perm&ea... En savoir plus

James Canning Gardens

Janet Rosenberg & Studio recently redesigned James Canning Gardens in Toronto and commissioned me to photograph it this summer. The gardens feature a canopy of existing trees, a playground, custom corten steel archways and beautiful urban furniture. Michael Muraz It was important to capture the park in use, so we made sure to include as many people as possible in the images. During daytime, the trees shield the park from the heat, and at night, the lights from the lampposts and the archways provide soft lighting to enjoy the space. Michael Muraz Michael Muraz Michael Muraz I had the fantastic opportunity to go back in the winter during a snowstorm to capture a very different perspective of this beautiful park. M...

Galatea House

Galatea is a vacation home built in Constancia neighbourhood, in a four-block-appendix in the south of Cariló, a seaside town situated 400 km from Buenos Aires. A coastal home is generally uncluttered, reflecting a rustic holiday lifestyle. This house was built to be rented during the year, so there was not a specific program of needs except from some conditions of accessibility and circulations. On an almost-level corner lot and slightly lifted from street level, the L-shaped house opens to the west liberating the centre of the lot at the time that places the prisms nesting the functions, as permeable edges towards the city.  The residence presents an ambiguous relationship with the outside. The visual continuity of the inte... En savoir plus
