Singel Residence by i29 Interior Architects

Nominated for the Bathroom Design Awards 2010, this project exists as one open space where several functions have been put into freestanding objects. The kitchen and wardrobe are placed near the entrance and combined into one single volume.
The bath and bedroom is hidden in a volume which is placed at back of the house. From the open living area you look alongside the volume towards the vertical garden and the entrance stairs to the roof terrace. The view on the green wall holds a promise in itself which will be redeemed once you enter the bed/bathroom.
The panorama on the overgrown plantwall and the contrast with the minimalistic white bed/bathroom provides an intense experience. Integration of nature is an important aspect of traditional culture in Japan, the homeland of the client.

T-Magi Shop by WE architecture

The design of specialist tea retailer, T-magi is intended to allow the shop itself to be perceived as the display window. The designers have used the teapot as the motif for both the shop, logo and PR material. Tiny backlit holes perforate the shelves and back wall providing a large 3D image of a teapot–a powerful eye-catcher. The image of the teapot dissolves as you approach and becomes part of the display stands of the shop.

Casa Son Vida by Marcel Wanders & tec Architecture

Marcel Wanders has designed the interior for the Casa Son Vida, a luxury villa on the island of Mallorca. The building is composed of both old and new parts, with a new extension by tec Architecture. Their addition influenced Wanders‘ design choices for the interior, in which he wanted to complement the building by continuing to bring together historical and contemporary elements. Round and square shapes, futuristic blobs combined with antiques result in a mix of traditional and modern references throughout the villa, with the play of reliefs and contrasting surfaces creating an unusual atmosphere.

PostPanic by Maurice Mentjens

PostPanic is a combination of a design/animation studio and a production company. The Company produces both commercial projects for the international advertising, retail, broadcast and music industries and its own internal projects.
In the briefing, functionality was the biggest priority. To ensure a constant quality, PostPanic purposely chooses to produce, direct, design and animate in-house to stay truth to their original vision, once in production. This approach requires that the various departments of PostPanic each have their clearly divided and defined areas. But at the same time PostPanic required to maintain as much as possible the openness and transparency that the place offered. The design also had to take into account that the workforce fluctuates from 14 to 40, depending on the different stages of production.
