Office Interior Design | Sign Kommunikation | Frankfurt am Main | Germany | Philip Mainzer Office For Architecture And Design

 "Commissioned to convert the interior of an old steam cooling station nestled on the banks of the Main river in Frankfurt into new offices for the graphic agency Sign Kommunikation. With its dark brick façade and loophole-like windows framed by red and white folding shutters, an office layout was conceived based on generous and natural use of space, while specifying varying materials as exposed concrete and walnut to create masterful contrasts. The centre of the building is a ten-meter (thirty feet) high concrete entrance hall whilst its true centrepiece is an atmosphere created especially for the needs of creative minds, which is at once equally conducive to individual contemplation, communication and teamwork. Services provided included all planning phases (Planning Phases 1-9) and implementation of all furniture........more

Restaurant Interior Design | Ikibana Restaurant | Barcelona | Spain | El Equipo Creativo

The restaurant design is based on these principles, seeking to create an artificial landscape in constant motion composed of natural and noble materials......more

 The architects Oliver Franz Schmidt and Natali Canas del Pozo began their work together in 2010, with the design for the emblematic restaurant Tickets of Ferran and Albert Adriá. El Equipo Creativo, the informal way they were named during that first project, is today the name of the studio specialized in the design of gastronomic, commercial and brand flag spaces.

Chidren Library Interior Design | Niños Conarte | Monterrey | Mexico | Anagrama

Conarte reached out to Anagrama with the mission to create a space that would foster a love of reading and learning for children. The children's library and cultural center was to be inside a warehouse-like building, an untouchable heritage site of the state. Our design proposal needed to take into account the untouchable nature of the building and, in some way, enhance it.

The result is a multi-purpose, asymmetrical reading platform meant to simulate Monterrey's mountainous topography. The bookshelves are not only used as storage, but serve as a dynamic space to play and learn, to fire the imagination and provide comfort while reading. The installation's colorful and geometric aesthetic contrasts directly with its antique, industrial building, elevating both elements in a cheerful and unique way.......more
