Apartment New Nordic in Moscow

The apartment has an area of ​​60 square meters. meters of its owner received in the program “resettlement of residents of dilapidated houses.” The project was created by Andrei Sviridov and the young architects of the “Scheme” studio.

On the topic: INT2architecture: a big project with a modest budget

“The problems with which we had to work: the lack of natural light and the spontaneous form of rooms,” the architects say. – We were required to create a simple and inexpensive interior, the walls of which are able to inspire the owner-musician and reflect his personality. At home, he spends a lot of time doing creative work. Therefore, changing the sensations in the interior is very important for him.

We suggested creating separate stories that unfold as you move from one part of the house to another. These stories are related to the movement of sunlight in the apartment. In the morning it illuminates the space of the bedroom, and in the evening its rare rays enter the living room and kitchen.

The movement of light we decided to beat using different color combinations inside the apartment. The interaction of color and light helped create a whole palette of impressions that vary depending on the time of day from room to room. To combine the diversity of subjects in one story is due to the work with the scale and rhythm of color spots.

In the bedroom, the blue “sky” adjoins the lighter, gray walls and peach slopes of the windows. In the living room, almost no sunlight, we used forest shades in it. We designed the bathroom with a total net of white ceramic tiles with dark seams, and the ceiling was painted in pink. Despite the wide spread of color zones, the space of an apartment is perceived as one.

Large and uniform color spots visually protrude or, conversely, go deep into the general gray background of the walls and the filler floor. Remains of paint decided to use to cover purchased wooden furniture, which was knocked out of the palette of the interior. Our choice – such brands as Hay, Normann Copenhagen, Ferm living, Ikea, Nemo lighting.

The apartment is located on the demolition of the house, which has a complex geometry of space: it is difficult to find a right angle or parallel wall. Align the space with color. We used the method of “color pockets” – individual zones, the shape of which is created by simultaneous painting of walls and ceiling.

We have painted the shape in a polygonal living room in a dark green color. As a result, we got the feeling of the right orthogonal space, to which the residual forms are attached. Such “pockets” change perceptions depending on which part of the room the observer is in.

“Scheme” is a group of young architects, designers and urbanists. Each project for “Scheme” is an experiment. We begin with a comprehensive analysis of the problem, formulate the idea of ​​the project and proceed to search for an image through dialogue with the client, referring to the basics of the architectural language.

We design interiors and buildings, we are engaged in the improvement of the urban environment, we create art objects and installations. “

Rem Koolhaas calls to the library

Company Rem Koolhaas OMA completed the project of the Qatar National Library (QNL) in Doha. One-storey building seeks to revive the traditional culture of reading. Architects have created a single interior space, the entrance to which is accessible from all sides of the building.

Officially open with the participation of the Emir of Qatar, the library included all the volumes of the Doha National, Public and University Libraries, and also now stores an extensive collection and archive of valuable texts and manuscripts related to the Arab-Islamic civilization.

Rem Koolhaas calls to the library

The library holds more than a million books and provides opportunities for thousands of readers on an area of ​​42,000 square meters. meters. Other buildings designed by OMA nearby, on the new campus, include the headquarters of the Qatar Foundation and a new branch of the Research Institute.

The building has a very compact shape, which includes only one single space with an open layout. To create such a volume, the edges of the building rise from the ground.

The invented configuration allows the visitor to access the center of the building. The aisles are indicated by the topography of the shelves, interspersed with spaces for reading, communication and free acquaintance with the books.

The bookshelves became part of the building. Both in terms of materiality – they are made from the same white marble as the floors – and the infrastructure: inside them are built-in lighting, ventilation and equipment for the return of the books read.

The results of the popular vote of ARKHYWOOD-2018 will be known on May 18: on this day in the building of the Central House of Artists (Novaya Tretyakovka), the solemn ceremony of presenting the prize will be held – the ninth in a row.

This year, the prize again collected a record number of applications – 180. And exactly one-third (60 objects) gave in the aggregate the nominations “Country House” and “Small Object” – that is, those with a wooden house. In the first of them, 10 objects appeared at once (this has never happened before, so this is also a record) – which indicates a serious qualitative growth of projects. The main battle threatens to unfold between the houses of last year’s winners of the prize – the St. Petersburg bureau of Khvoya and the team from Vladivostok “Concrete Jungle”. Built on different ends of the country, these two houses are similar: low boxes, outside – dark, inside – light.

The house of Eugene Silin and Felix Mashkov is made with high quality, as they say in such cases – “furniture”, it can even be mistaken for a locker. At the same time, the facade of this “locker” was solved in the monumental style of the Soviet palaces: the inner surfaces smoothly rounded off, passing to the sides and roof, and in front of the building there is a whole “square” – a huge open terrace. House HVOI more cozy and rational: under the spectacular slope of the roof – mezzanine with bedrooms, and the through passage divides the house into a residential part and a workshop (which is lit by the correct top light from the north).

The house of ILL in Latvia (bureau INT2Architecture) continues the theme of the through passage and the contrasting color solution: only here all these modern techniques are shaded with the usual roof by two slopes, and the ends are trimmed with an old granary board (the rear ones are flush and the front ones are indented). The complex includes a garage building, repeating in miniature all the main decisions, put as if by chance and picturesquely, but creating with the main house a peculiar patio.

The “shed” aesthetics is developed by its main ideologist, Alexander Ermolaev: TAF condominium in Balashikha is built as a workshop for pupils and associates, combining public areas and corners for creative solitude. The external appearance is as if uncomplicated, but in fact it is precisely determined by the layout and very original. Adjacent to this flank are Alexei Rozenberg and Pyotr Kostelov, who built a group of eco-houses in Konakovo: again a corporate gray color, a symphony of narrow windows (both vertical and horizontal), unusual skewings of roofs (in modern times they were called “hips”), which in the aggregate gives the houses a completely non-Russian image. Inside, everything, as always, is not only carefully thought out, but also fascinating. And Konakovo remains the main testing ground for modern wooden architecture.

But he also had a competitor on this part – the Eco-Park “Clear Field”. They also love modern architecture, as well as horses and cattle. And last year these two love were united: Vladimir Kuzmin brought to the Tula open spaces a whole “herd”. The bull house and the two cows are guest houses, which stand firmly on numerous legs, also have glazed “muzzles”, spotted “skins”, window-portholes and a host of other cheerful signs.

Much more severe home-“thrushes” of the newcomers of the award – Moscow’s Buro511. There are four of them, all of them are black, but they also stand on their legs and twist “muzzles” in different directions. And although they do not have the same removal as in the Kuzma beasts, they are more restrained and elegant, but collectively these objects designate a separate direction within the nomination – let’s call it “expressionistic”. The most modest in this series is the summer cottage near Novosibirsk (Galina Budnikova, Grigory Kuzhelev, Alexei Morzhakov). However, he is not without expression: an unusual image is achieved not only due to the multilevel interior space, but also due to the plating, the boards of which are parallel not to the ground but to the main volume. This simple trick creates a vivid image: as if the house bears a rocket, which is about to start in the sky.

In the nomination “Small object” (as in the nomination “Design of the urban environment”), the main object of attention of architects was water. This is a super-quality reconstruction of the Krasnogvardeisky ponds (Wowhaus bureau), and the construction of the Yenisei waterfront in Divnogorsk (Alexei Mikota): spectacular objects, reminiscent of birds or flowers on the background of epic mountains (and this is another new place on the bonus card and a new name in the list of our heroes).

Immediately there are two objects on the embankment of the Volga in Samara: “The Volga Stork” (lim_architects) – tied to the crossbars hammocks from the sheets, and the sight swings of Anton Kochurkin: a kind of modernist children’s designer who, in addition, moves. On the water live and pavilions “Rezh” Egor Solovyov: deceptively familiar, they are much more cunning than they seem. The houses are stacked in the dirge, that is, with large gaps between the logs (as in the old days they cut belfries and other farm buildings that do not involve permanent residence of the person), and the gaps are filled with tinted glass (the reason for which were strong winds blowing on “Drakino Island” as the whole grandiose complex will be called). Less pragmatic, but no less effective is the “Plot Paradox” in Vyksa Anastasia Izmakova and Bella Filatova: he not only referred to the optical games of Maurice Escher, but also added strangeness to them, sending an already bizarre design to sail. Finally, the most powerful “water” thing – “House with a chandelier” from St. Petersburg’s Khvoya, a house-raft, plowed the expanse of “ArkhStoyaniya” last summer. A wooden box with two beds has no windows, but a light torch is embedded in the roof, in which a chandelier is fastened. In the afternoon, the interior is illuminated through a flashlight, at night – a chandelier, while the house itself shines all around. Surprisingly magical, warm and witty structure, which is difficult not to predict victory.

Another thing on the water is “Lime Tea” in Sukhanov: two berths on two opposite shores of the lake; symbolize the dialogue of Ranevskaya and Lopakhin; while both of them smoothly go under the water: Russia did not need either one or the other.

This is already the nomination “Art object”, in the long-list of which there was more than ever a lot of animals: hare, bear, moose, horse (red) … The main supplier of this fauna was the first time participating in the award Tyumen (and sculptor Oleg Epifanov). However, in the short list, the animals did not make it: prevented excessive illustrative. Although to say that the key to getting into the finals was conceptuality, it would also be dishonest. All the objects that come out in the short list are good not only in design, but in execution as well, such as the obelisk in Sukhanov. This is a subtle deconstruction of the usual stone archetype: it has become light, transparent, ghostly. And it is no coincidence: because it arose here in memory of the former greatness of the estate. As it is not accidental, the point is the only one from which both the main house and the pond are visible (the alley that connected them has long been overgrown). A much more evil object on the same topic (all of them are made within the framework of the festival “Drevolyutsiya”) – a rocking toilet “Pro [srali] Sukhanovo”. Here, no longer elegiac sadness, as in the obelisk, but an evil satire on the infantilism of grown-up uncles and aunts, which, in fact, led the estate to its present state. And again, the archetype is rethought, or rather, two at a time: a child’s rocking chair and a summer cottage. But they are cleverly combined into one paradoxical object, which, moreover, is firmly and well made (as, indeed, the obelisk).

No less sarcastic “Zern” Vlad Kisel: skosobochivshiysya head of the Orthodox church, and even stripped down, where instead of the spire – shanyrak (round hole for light in the ceiling of the yurt). The guests of the EXPO exhibition and the object of the workshop of Totan Kuzembaev in Astana took a yurt. But it was “Shoshala” – a traditional nomadic lumber-room, solved, however, on a giant scale, but collected at the same time from euro pallets. Ideology Reduce Reuse Recycle (cut, re-use, recycle), which was symbolized by the pavilion, looked particularly sharp on the esplanade of the Kazakh capital, built up by glass skyscrapers and palaces with national ryushechkami. On the same esplanade, with the same illegal wooden comet, “Movable coworking” from “Megabudka” flashed: a wooden house on wooden wheels, whose walls are riddled with triangular loopholes (referring already to mashrabia – a patterned wooden lattice covering windows and balconies in the architecture of the ancient East).

Not that a very practical, but completely original in its appearance building, compared to which can only that the toilet in the form of a ball from the artel “Danila, Makar and the brothers.” The artel, who participated for the first time in the award, scowled at the award archive and said soberly: “Well, we do not seem to have anything with our houses here, but there is something for you.” And I was not mistaken.

No longer hutsDmitry Belyaev, Yuri Ivanov (artel “Danila, Makar and the brothers”). Toilet «Hedgehog»

No less paradoxical (though only due to a change in the usual scale) is the “Library of Plants” from MANIPULAZIONE INTERNAZIONALE: before the eyes, the library catalog becoming archaic is deployed at a height of 3 meters and instead of cards filled with living plants: to hint to us that they can also become archaism. Likewise, the scale is taken by the Sandbox at Yeltsin Center in Yekaterinburg: is it time for her to go to the “Book of Records”?

“Drevolyutsiya” regained its leading position, slightly surrendered last year, reaching the final with 4 objects, to which one can add the “Sign” object, made under its own brand (but not in Sukhanov): a sign to the real estate exhibition, a skyscraper in the form of placed one on the other skeletons of one-story houses, the penultimate of which also worked as a lamp. Quite relevant reference to the famous Vitra Haus Herzog and de Merona. Among the public buildings it is worth noting the farmer market near Tula Anton Kochurkina and the motel “Boomerang” Nikolay Lizlov; in the nomination “Interior” – the witty round bedroom of Totan Kuzembaev and, as always, a tough but beautiful mixture of wood and concrete in the apartment of Alexei Rosenberg.

Finally, in the category “Restoration” there are three very different objects, three different subjects. The Pokrovskaya (Sretenskaya) church in Zaostrovie (Rikasovo) is a dramatic story stretching from the Soviet times, about how an absolutely unique monument, whose cover mimics the zakomars of a stone church, tried to save, but failed: the glavks fell, broke, the old shingle, which it was still possible to save, could not save and so on. St. George chapel in Suume – on the contrary, almost a fairy tale, moreover with a happy ending. The young restorer Olga Zinina found almost a ruin in the Shenkursky district, collected volunteers from the “Werenitsa” foundation, opened fundraising on the “Beginning” platform, and for three years completely touched the monument with a rare wedge finish. Which, however, and the monument, then officially was not listed – which allowed to raise it by the forces of volunteers.

Finally, the Assumption Chapel on Kizhi is the first precedent of how the object from which the boardwalk was removed in the Soviet era (in the course of the course of Alexander Opolovnikov for the return of their original form to the temples) had to be sewn again: the monument failed to withstand precipitation tests and began to rot swiftly . Now, of course, he looks not so appetizing, but he did not have to go through, losing the historical log cabin: he will live under a new case. The decision is controversial, but methodologically extremely important.

Public voting on the Internet, and will end on May 16. Then the winners will be selected by a professional jury. This year, Nikita Tokarev (director of the MARSH school), Anna Martovitskaya (editor-in-chief of the magazine SPEECH), Alexey Bavykin (head of the workshop “Alexey Bavykin and Partners”), Stanislav Gorshunov (head of the Gorshunov / GORA Bureau, Nizhny Novgorod), multiple winners of the ARCHIWOOD Darya Butakhina and Alexander Kudimov (RueTemple), Vitaly Gorelov (project manager of the Moscow office of the company HONKA).

The solemn ceremony of awarding winners will take place in the building on Krymsky Val, 10 (CHA / Novaya Tretyakovka) on May 18 at 19.00.

The general sponsor and organizer of the award is Rossa Rakenne SPb (HONKA).

The author’s team, led by WSP Architects, has been entrusted to Ghana and Chen Lin with the central campus, consisting of more than ten independent colleges in different architectural styles. For them it was necessary to create a “core” with the administrative part, the urban institute of Hangzhou, the library, the teaching and student center, the hotel, the conference halls, the theater, etc. As a result, they occupied an area of ​​160,000 m2.

It was decided to place all parts of the program in the buildings around the perimeter of the site in six hectares, simultaneously independent and connected with each other. In the middle, a square was created, through which the central axis of the campus passes, linking it to the metro station.

At the heart of the project is a modular system that facilitated the construction, allowed to increase its quality and gave the possibility in the future to adjust the complex to the changing needs of the university.

The choice in favor of several buildings instead of a single volume allowed to create a better urban environment on the campus. The height of the buildings assigned by the customer was reached, but the resulting “towers” are perceived as a kind of observation platform in the landscape, from which views are opened to the national park – Sisi bogs – and historical shopping areas.

Restaurant with a “built-in” flower shop

The Chinese design bureau 0321 built a transparent pink cube with a flower shop into the facade of the new restaurant.

Nous is a new restaurant and flower shop in Dongguan in southern China. His design was handled by a small bureau 0321, based in Shenzhen. The main request of the customers was to make Nous a place where guests can see the connection of flowers and restaurant dishes in a visual, functional and even emotional way.

Restaurant with a "built-in" flower shop

With such an unusual request, the Bureau 0321 had never encountered before. However, designers came out of the difficult situation easily and elegantly: they built a matte pink cube right in front of the restaurant hall and placed in it a flower shop with a long counter and armfuls of different colors. Thus, a small floral “corner” serves as an organic screen between the restaurant and the bustling street.

The interior of Nous is decorated in different shades of gray. Only small vases with flowers dilute ensemble of gray surfaces with white patches of terrazzo, metal worktops and light gray upholstery of chairs and restaurant sofas.

The decorative component of the interior of the restaurant is minimized, and the only bright spot, except the flower shop, is the staircase leading to the second floor. Its glass balustrade is made of the same pink frosted glass as the shop window, and the steps themselves are lined with a pink, not a gray terrazzo.
