Office Interior Design | Maharam | Dallas | Fernlund + Logan Architects

In Downtown Dallas a ground floor former restaurant in a 1980ʼs office building was converted into offices and a showroom for the textile company Maharam.The site located on a corner and partially facing an inner courtyard had an abundance of natural light, but needed a new storefront. To open the space tothe streetlarge glass windows and doors were added between the existing concrete columns. Within the irregular geometry of the building, a sequence ofrectangular spaces were arranged defining circulation routes as well as public and private uses. Interior glass walls partitioned meeting areas from the openoffice and showroom. Service areas divide the
showroom from an open sample storage area for fabric samples. A precise arrangement of the furniture further organizes the open space for its various uses.....more

House Interior Design | Bellevue Hill | dKO Architecture

A Spanish Mission facade hides a minimalist interior.
Spaces that seamlessly flow from inside to outside and that have been designed to maximise the million dollar views while also providing a sense of intimacy and sense of home.
The palette does not intend to challenge the user, but rather encase them lightly. The emphasis on function and the use of natural light was aimed to create space and openness with a paired back contemporary interior to suit all future occupants.

Ultimately the resultant aim was to indulge in a monochromatic home of smooth surfaces and planes, light and shadow......more

Showroom Interior Design | CeasarStone | DBA

This showroom project explores the requirements of a partition wall that takes a special threshold position. In a longitudinal gap, it separates the space of a large warehouse into two units and has to meet requirements on several levels: it must, for example, separate the showroom area from the offices, reduce different levels of transparency and seclusion, integrate a reception area and, finally, develop a visual interior that contrasts with how timber framing has so far been interpreted. This versatility is realised by a construction system consisting of a wall made of carefully layered, two-inch-thick, plastic-laminated wooden ribs. The plasticity of this construction meets the different requirements by allowing for the integration of different volumes. At the same time it represents an aesthetically well-thought-out solution.....more

Restaurant Interior Design | Moonsoon Restaurant | Sapporo | Japan | Zaha Hadid

For a two-fold programme of formal eating and relaxed lounging an opposition of moods was created. The result is two synthetic and strange worlds: fire and ice. Inspired by the seasonal ice buildings of Sapporo, the ground floor features cool-greys materialised in glass and metal. Tables are sharp fragments of ice: a raised floor level drifts like an iceberg across the space. Above the ice chamber whirls a furnace of fire, rendered in searing reds, brilliant yellows and exuberant oranges. A spiral above the bar tears through the ground-floor ceiling, curling up to the underside of the upper-level dome like a fiery tornado bursting through a pressure vessel. A plasma of biomorphic sofas accommodates eating and lounging and allows an infinite configuration of seating types with movable trays and plug-in sofa backs.......more

Office Interior Design | YNNO workplace | sprikk

YNNO advises on innovative methods of working and the environments that support these. Their expertise follows the conceptions of the “new ways of working”. As their best reference sprikk planned the office that embodies these notions.
Since their consultants spend more time at their client’s than in the office, YNNO asked for a workplace that functions as a home base rather than a conventional office. A working environment was created that suits the nature of the consultant's way of working in which communication and networking play a vital role. The floorplan is kept entirely open with the exception of two acoustically separated glass volumes. This stimulates free movement, spontaneous encounters and flexible uses while allowing for lots of natural light. In this open plan organically shaped birchwood structures were placed that form partitions, niches, storage spaces and bookshelves. By applying one material and a single construction method a coherent appearance of the space is created, that still offers a diversity of working places with gradations in open and closed character. The natural, haptic qualities of these birchwood structures form a contrast to the high-end communication- and presentation technologies that were applied throughout the space......more

Cafe Interior Design | iCream | Chicago | Illinois | STL

The concept of iCream is to provide, fresh-made, customized ice cream. The technology that makes it possible drove the concept behind this project, a 1200 square foot retail store in Chicago. To design a space that showed off the store’s liquid-nitrogen based cryogenic technology while paying homage to the lineage of American ice cream parlors, STL designed a sleek, colorful interior that puts the process on display for the customer. Patrons use a touch screen to design their frozen treat and then watch its creation behind the counter.
Constructed on a tight budget, drywall, plastic laminate, and stainless steel cryogenic tubing were the extent of what STL had to work with in this project, and aside from the long, narrow space in which the store is sited, represented our greatest challenge. At iCream, a trip to the ice cream shop is transformed into a tasteful culinary event.........more

Office Interior Design | Modular Arts | Seattle | Washington | Heliotrope

Modular Arts is a Seattle-based company that designs and produces technologically advanced gypsum based 3-dimensional wall panel materials used by designers worldwide. Their growing business recently relocated to a light-industrial building with accommodations for both office and manufacturing functions. Heliotrope was brought in to collaborate on the office interior tenant improvement, which required replacement of all existing finishes, systems and furnishings. The project had a very tight budget and was built by the Modular Arts crew rather than by a general contractor. Our design strategy consisted of simple details, durable finishes and a liberal use of the company’s products - allowing the tenant-builder to execute the work within their comfort zone. Furnishings are mostly purchased second-hand, and the front desk sourced from a local wood salvage company.

Art Gallery Interior Design | 176 | London | Allford Hall Monaghan Morris

Built as the Central Methodist Chapel in 1867 and later used as the North London Drama Centre the building has been sensitively transformed into a new experimental exhibition space in London’s Chalk Farm.

Club Interior Design | Sutton-the club | Barcelona | Spain | Lagranja Design

The design breaks with the radial distribution created by the arrangement of boxes around a “theatrical” stage.
The new space is characterised by an open layout using “topographical” distribution to create different areas. Two private spaces: a platform with sofas, which has the feel of a chill-out zone, and a terrace-balcony with large LED lamps that change color.
The space reinvents itself through its fittings and fine details: a pair of out-of-scale sofas, multiple tube lamps, light tables, two-way mirrors, inflatable clouds that illuminate a bar, a floor in the entrance that reinterprets the urban pavements of Barcelona, an XXL-sized clock, and so on. An ordered chaos for a nocturnal space.....more

Elements of the original structures are brought to the fore: a vast open space on the ground floor, with cast-iron columns and huge windows.

Club Interior Design | Club Sugar | Santa Monica | California | John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects

Social Mixer: This 3,000 square foot interior investigates the nightclub’s role as a “social mixer,” a place that encourages cultural integration, curiosity, and inclusion.

See and Be Seen: The space was designed to intensify the looking at and meeting of people – to both reinforce and poke fun at the narcissistic and voyeuristic behavior inherent in a nightclub. To this end, it brings people together in surprising ways, such as the space in the polycarbonate “tunnel” that allows people to see inside the restrooms through clear acrylic doors......more
