Located along Minnehaha Mile, All Square's mission — which aims to prevent recidivism and employ and empower formerly incarcerated individuals — now has a physical presence. The project symbolizes “the importance of a clean slate and community support while sending a message that those who have paid their debts to society are ‘all square’ with society and should be afforded the right to live, unhindered, into their future,” Turner told Archinect in 2016. Jonathan Louie and Nicole McIntosh of Syracuse-based Architecture Office were in charge of converting a 900 square-foot space into a welcoming, community-oriented casual dining spot. The resulting project features a simple interior of white and gray Continue reading "Peek inside All Square’s new grilled cheese restaurant in Minneapolis, designed by Syracuse-based Architecture Office"

In an unusual game of musical chairs, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Frick Collection announced today (21 September) that the Met will vacate the Brutalist Breuer building on Madison Avenue in 2020. Its departure will make way for the Frick to move in late that year while its mansion undergoes a renovation and expansion five blocks away.

Text description provided by the architects. The 4 story house is for a family of 4, including parents and 2 grown-up sons. At the moment, those 2 sons are studying abroad and visit home occasionally, the house, therefore, is designed based on requires of the middle-aged couple, who asked for large and airy common spaces without separated walls, to easily keep an eye on each other.
The renovation has been done on an L-shape, 3-story building. We agreed with the investor to remain the old structure in order to shorten construction time and reduce the cost. The house is located at a T-junction and its facade heads west without any sun cover. At this

Text description provided by the architects. Each city is given unique character by its history. Unfortunately in China most cities are losing their features after reconstruction and taking on almost the same image. It is imperative for urban real estate developers to retain cultural heritage of the city through balanced and appropriate design solutions.
Old and new co-existing under curve-shaped roof
Situated at the intersection of Yangtze River and Han River,
The program required an expressive facade with no windows. The firm created an imprint based design using façade features of the surrounding buildings, lifted entrances, and a golden entrance spot covering one corner of the nightclub building.

The clients aspired for a Contemporary design, iconic house in the locality that housed not only a living unit but also work and entertainment zones on different levels.
At the same time they wanted Landscape ideas that could interact between all spaces internally and externally. The client’s penchant was towards a slick modernist vocabulary that amalgamated the habitable spaces with the landscape. Working closely with the client – a

Inspired by the owner’s Scandinavian heritage and DIY attitude, Bløm Meadworks was designed with simplicity in mind. Clean white lines and natural raw materials emphasize the crisp sweetness of the session style mead they serve. The varied seating arrangements: a customized concrete-finished bar, large communal cherry wood tables, and wall-mounted two-top counters; offer a variety of dining experiences within the 2,900 sqft Meadery.
Upon entry, a bright yellow path leads the way through an open display of the mead fermentation process and into a modern taproom full of Synecdoche-fabricated mobile tables intended to accommodate

This round of OSHA citations is likely only the beginning of legal actions resulting from the deadly collapse of the new Florida International University pedestrian bridge in March 2018. Investigations of the National Transportation Safety Board are ongoing and, depending on its findings, could lead to a criminal case.
The original home contains bedrooms and service areas but with newly installed vaulted skylights that visually enlarge the spaces. The pavilion features a double height living room with an adjacent dining room and kitchen with an open sitting room above. Glass walls disappear, expanding the open living space into the backyard. The addition connects to the bungalow by way of a hallway that continues through to the front door. Newly formed courtyards between both structures provide additional natural light and ventilation.

Should you avoid bright colors in the bedroom?This rule is true, according to Kimberly Schmunk, an interior designer at Nashville-based luxury custom home developer Focus Builders. “I tend to lean toward a more soothing color palette in the bedroom, since this is the room you will be winding down in.” If you want to incorporate bold colors, she recommends including it in artwork, throw pillows or other accessories. You can paint your bedroom bright red, but

Text description provided by the architects. For the event of the Jinji Lake Biennial, MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY installed a large-scale outdoor pavilion on the elevated plaza of the Suzhou Center. Its undulating enclosure interrupts the usual traffic, as an unexpected, emergent environment. It appears to have bubbled up from the ground, or dropped from the sky. The structure, both massive in scale and delicate in white aluminum, lands lightly on an ultra-thin edge. Boolean Operator—so named for the function that determines relationships between statements, geometries or forms—makes an impression from a distance. Unlike the surrounding texture of the city, this curious structure radiates an otherworldly quality. It casts a strange shadow. It seems to conceal something behind its porous shell. Like seeing the full moon on a
