The Fredensborg House by NORM Architects

On a sloping property north of Copenhagen, the Fredensborg House is built on five small plateaus connected by steps, reflecting the shape of its surrounding terrain. The house aesthetic is derived from inspirations brought about by the labyrinthine mountain village architecture, those that you may find familiar in Southern Europe, the architecture of Chinese temples, and in the works of modernist Danish architecture Jorn Utzon.

Das Neue Kubitscheck by designliga

“Tell me what music you listen to, and I’ll tell you who you are” was among the principles that served as a blueprint, starting-point and road-map for the look and feel of the campaign and for the subsequent implementation of Das Neue Kubitscheck (The New Kubitscheck).

Cafe owner, Armin Stegbauer’s aim is to free cakes and gateaux from their years of imprisonment behind the bars of crocheted doilies, cologne and dusty Sunday tradition. Stegbauer, saviour of Cafe Kubitscheck in Waldfriedhofstrasse, a traditional Munich confectioner’s from the 1950s, has made it his goal to revamp the confectioner’s tradition for the modern age. But not without taking on board some endearing aspects of Germany’s confectionery culture that are worthy of preservation.

Ceramic House by Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez

In the attic of an emblematic building of classical early 20th century Madrid, this new concept of living space is placed: UNLIMITED SPACE (Ceramic House) is presented by architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez and built out of total freedom of layers. As if the design would be a three-dimensional object, every one of the rooms or points of the home can be located by specifying the axis of coordinates. The result is the power to move around in few square meters at different heights, going up and down, offering a new experience of roominess in the context of a home: to explore the space. The transition between the rooms is continuous and lets the movement flow freely across the numerous levels. The spatial flexibility that transforms this home is an innovative housing concept which adapts itself to the actual necessities and to the new usages. Where roominess, brightness and time flow in a multifunctional space without corners or precedence. It is also about expanding the parameters of interior design as well as the conventional trends of arrangement.
