Sushi, one of Japan’s most popular and traditional dishes has now established itself as a worldwide favorite for people all around the globe and (indeed) for architects, especially. Many countries have established sushi culture into their menus and restaurants from Spain to Dubai have adapted Japanese architecture to create the perfect space for eating sushi. The key to these serene interiors rely on Japanese interior qualities such as soft illumination, wooden finishings and textures that create the right environment.

Since June 18th is World Sushi Day, we are celebrating with this selection of 10 sushi bars and restaurants from all around the world!

Ditch the Wait with Real-Time Rendering

A recent independent survey of more than 2000 architectural visualization professionals revealed an intriguing trend. More than 20% of these designers and architects are using real-time rendering as part of their presentation workflows right now, with another 40% trying it out for adoption.

What’s going on here? The answer lies in the convergence of the real-time rendering technology originally intended for games, and the needs of architects to produce fully-polished views and animations more quickly. As CPUs and GPUs gained power and abilities, and tools like Unreal Engine introduced photoreal rendering in real time, we’ve seen the inevitable use of real-time rendering for architectural presentation.

Casa dos Pátios. Pedro Ferreira

18 June, 2018 - 00:10

Fotografía: João Morgado
Situado en Rua Santo Ildefonso (calle), Porto, el proyecto Casa dos Pátios es una rehabilitación de un edificio del siglo XVIII.
A lo largo de su historia, el edificio, que había sido utilizado para uso comercial y viviendas, sirivó después como escuela, luego fue abandonado y en la actualidad se encontraba en estado de pre-ruina.
El diseño creó un conjunto de apartamentos y tiendas, manteniendo toda la estructura y el concepto espacial de la preexistencia. Aunque desde el exterior solo parece tener dos pisos, el edificio original presenta una estructura de cuatro pisos habitables en su interior.

Superbaba by Studio Roslyn | Restaurant interiors

18 June, 2018 - 00:00

The crew behind Superbaba came to us inspired to make the best damn pita bread in the area. They looked to us to create a space that supplemented their desire to offer high quality, quick-service Middle Eastern cuisine. We as a studio enjoyed getting to the bottom of what inspired the four owners to come together to bring this concept to the PNW. What intrigued us most was everyone’s individual inspiration for this concept. Everything from ‘The Dallah Menu’s’ family history in Lebanon, the interest in the more ‘grungy’ signage found on every fast-casual storefront in the Middle East, and the aesthetic of over-saturated food photography typically seen there. Our goal was to marry these sources of inspirations into an artful space that would be at once intriguing and inviting. The interiors of Superbaba reference the strong arch motifs in traditional Middle Eastern architecture as well as quirky details found in diners and eateries. This nod to the traditional is offset with bol… continue

Lycée La Plaine by Brenac & Gonzalez | Schools

18 June, 2018 - 00:00

Located in the Montjoie ZAC (urban development zone), this new facility represents both an urban and architectural challenge in its size and programmatic mix of high school and student boarding house. For the plan, the architects drew inspiration from the spiral, symbolizing movement, progress through knowledge and enhanced social standing through culture and study. The functional organization of this new institution is designed to be open to the neighborhood and the wider city. Raised volumes, in bridge form, open new perspectives and visual connections between the public space, the forecourt, the courtyard, the covered playground and the interior gardens. The high school, the boarding house and staff housing units are placed above the food service area, which is shared by all and ties the entire the program together. The façades are treated as a tangle of ribbons in movement. Passing imperceptibly from the exterior to the interior. Floor plan transitions are enhanced by changes i… continue

Green Hall 2 Top floor offices by AKTA | Office facilities

18 June, 2018 - 00:00

Green Hall 2, a cutting-edge business centre located on a bend of Neris River, is distinguished by its soft architectural forms. Structural plan, interior and furniture design of the Černiauskas ir Partneriai law firm and Blockchain centre, both based on the top floor of the business centre, excellently corresponds to the streamlined shape of the building. The office includes a lounge area which could be transformed into an informal work space. It could also be easily adapted for conferences or large-scale events. Height adjustable desks, aluminium strip ceilings and veneer wall panels cover communication lines and constructions necessary for a modern work space. Cabinet walls provides privacy while the glass partitions create a feeling of space and allow employees to enjoy a stunning city view. High-quality materials and sober earth tones create a cosy office atmosphere. AKTA continue

Good Lock: 15 Kool Key Cutting Shops & Signs

17 June, 2018 - 19:00
[ By Steve in Architecture & Cities & Urbanism. ]

Key cutting shops may be circling the retail store drain but their doom isn’t quite locked in, as these 15 classic key cutting shops and signs illustrate.

Key cutters occupy a cluttered end of the retail spectrum… no one has, is or will make a living on key cutting alone. As such, key cutting gets lumped in with other “orphan” services like shoe repair. It’s hardly a battle of equals, however, and for some reason shop owners feel the need to state and re-state their ability to cut keys… are their aged customers hard of hearing AND seeing?
