Designed to look right-side-up when reflected off the water below, this series wall murals features a series of nautical themes, including depictions of swimmers, rowers and swans. While the image above is accurate and untouched, a modified photo (shown below) shows a more idealized version that does not really reflect reality.

New York-based Ray Bartkus made this mural for the Lithuanian city of Marijampole, set alongside the river Šešupe, which flows through the city’s center. The artist is known for other works that rely on mirrors and reflections as well.

Storyline Cafe by JUNSEKINO Architect + Design | Café interiors

archiWEB 3.0 - 18 October, 2016 - 00:00

“The coffee shop that doesn’t solely serve coffee but can simultaneously be provided as the multi-purpose space. Besides, it must also be able to serve as the meeting point which allows people to relax while doing their works”. This is the first intention from the owner of the creative agency office in Bangkok who demands for the coffee and food shop to combine with the co-working space. From their distinct desire, they later decided to turn their meeting room into café with the main concept of “eat, talk and work”. The renovation remodeled the existed suffocating space of the first floor and a part of second floor to become alive. The coffee bar and the kitchen are located on the first floor which could be noticed firstly when entrancing the building. Besides being café and restaurant during daytime, the coffee bar is also transformed into the bar either for the staff’s party or for alcohol fanciers when the sun goes down.

Mar Azul, a seashore town in Villa Gesell Department, neighboring Mar de las Pampas, had its sand dunes terrain divided into a grid pattern. Its dense aged pinewood grants Mar Azul’s atmosphere pleasant quietness and tranquility. In a modest, 210 square meter plot of land on a corner, eight blocks away from the sea, rises H3, a minimum tread house designed to make the most of the parcel’s dimensions and the natural surroundings. The commissioner: 3 sisters and each of their families. Even though their budget was limited, they we valued ability to express what they wished H3 should be: their shared summer house, their own place to rest amid nature.They requested that the house’s dimensions should be defined very rigorously. The brief should comprise a predominant social area and a more private one, constituted by two bedrooms: an ample master bedroom and a smaller cabin-like one, both sharing a common bathroom. They wanted the master bedroom to open up outwards into a semi-covered… continue

Sereine by Septembre | Detached houses

archiWEB 3.0 - 18 October, 2016 - 00:00

Conversion of an old farmhouse into a summer house for a family of four. The project concept was to keep as much as possible of the old structure while adapting it to its new use. Discrete interventions on the internal fittings and use of rugged materials with natural appearance allows for a gentle preservation of the initial appearance of the building and its annex. The house is divided in three distinct zones, one public area with kitchen, dining and living room, the children’s rooms and play area and the parents’ bedroom and bathroom. The public zone constitutes the link between the parent’s area and the children’s. The existing structure underwent large transformation with installation of floor heating, insulation of all ceiling and walls, and additions of windows. The windows have generous proportions and are positioned on key points to frame the surrounding landscape. On the ground floor 5 glass doors allows for a multiple choice of access into the garden. An opening betwe… continue
