Warehouse in San Francisco Converted into Contemporary Loft | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture e-learning | Scoop.it

Oriental Warehouse Loft is a project skillfully implemented by studio Edmonds + Lee Architects and located in San Francisco’s South Beach neighborhood. The result of a warehouse conversion, this eye-catching modern duplex pays tribute to the notions of space and openness. Here is more on the renovation process from the architects: “Opaque guardrails at the sleeping mezzanine were replaced with frameless glass guardrails in order to provide a direct visual connection to the living room below. A large over-sized sheet of transparent glass further eliminates privacy in the master bathroom by allowing views into and out of the bathroom to the rest of the loft beyond. In contrast to the existing heavy-timber and rusticated brick structural shell which are left exposed, sleek new interior finishes were replaced throughout including wall and floor finishes, kitchen and bathroom mill work and a new steel cantilever stair that connects the living areas on the ground floor with the sleeping areas on the mezzanine.” What are the details you find most inspiring in the photos below?

After such a mind-vacation, your stresses are temporarily lifted and peace is restored. It is for this reason that every home should contain its very own reading nook.

Unfortunately, in project management there are nothing but problems that need to be solved. Without them, projects would simply run on their own. It does not matter how talented you are, if you can not manage your projects, you will struggle to achieve success. On average, projects are 222% longer than the scheduled deadline for completion. Only 44% of all projects are completed on or ahead of schedule. That means the rest of the 56% of projects are finished extremely beyond the scheduled time set to be finished. Also, on average, projects are 189% over budget by the end of project completion. This contributes to the 30% of all projects being cancelled before they are finished. To avoid these problems associated with the specificity of work with multiple projects you need a tool which will make your work easier.

Boutique Wall Made Up of 25000 Brown Paper Bags: OWEN Store in New York | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture e-learning | Scoop.it

Have a look at these creative honeycomb patterns displayed by the OWEN Store in New York City! Designed by studio Tacklebox, the interior of this clothes store stays true to the industrial character of the building and adds a little extra. What goes with bricks and dark wood floors? How about thousands of brown paper bags? “Responding to the inherent nature of the industrial space, approximately 25,000 brown paper bags surface the continuous wall and ceiling plane. Arching overhead, the rows of stacked bags form a textured partition. Enveloping the space, the installation intends to revitalize the recently lost pastime of in-store shopping, creating a warm atmosphere for shoppers.” We find this idea creative and not to mention, highly affordable. Moreover, the design of the store maintains industrial details such as blackened steel hang-bars used as clothes racks and an exposed brick wall, contributing to a memorable shopping atmosphere. What do you think about this idea?

After presenting 38 Garden Design Ideas post last week, today we ran across this high altitude garden hidden between the skyscrapers in Sydney, Australia. This spectacular rooftop haven was designed by Secret Gardens and provides an unusual place of relaxation, far above the racket of the city. The landscaping process was focused on maximizing the vistas and creating a green oasis, 25 floors above the ground: “Buxus hedging and topiary cones add a formal element whilst iris and lavender create a whimsical effect. Timber seating frames the garden providing a place to sit and enjoy the garden and the amazing harbor views.” How would you comment on this project? Do you find this type of vantage point appealing in a city as dynamic as Sydney? Or would you rather have a similar terrace in a more secluded part of town, at a lower altitude? Share your opinion!

Incorporating the ruins of a former mill, the Bogbain Mill residence designed by Scottish studio Rural Design, does not lack originality. In developing the new building plans, the architects started gathering ideas from the site, where old walls were inhabited by green plants, as nature was taking over: “Our clients brief was for a large family house. We were keen to re-imagine the building in a progressive form, layering a series of forms over the ruins to create a clear juxtaposition of old and new. All the forms create new and intriguing courtyard spaces, allowing our client to engage in his passion for gardening.” Even though the interior use of wood and stone pays tribute to the character of the building, once inside, it is difficult to believe this impressive residence was once a former mill. Space and elegance are the main characteristics of this home in Scottland, which we invite you to discover in detail.
