De Burgemeester in Hoofddorp by Studioninedots

This extraordinary wooden staircase is found in this office lobby in the Dutch town of Hoofddorp. It’s created by Amsterdam architects Studioninedots.

They were challenged with renovating an entire 1970s office building. The architects began by removing an existing staircase and enlarging the space around it to create a void that visually connects a communal area on the ground floor with the levels above.

The staircase acts as the focal point of this large atrium and was made by cladding a steel structure in plywood sheets to create a series of bridges and access points to the various floors.

“The staircase as a tool for communication, lends the building a collective identity,” the architects says. “As a vertical lobby that offers views of all floors, it tells occupants that they are part of a larger world.”

Love it!

Haus am Weinberg

The architects of the UNStudio based in Amsterdam, Shanghai and Hong Kong designed in 2011 the single family house ‘Haus am Weinberg’ in Stuttgart, Germany.

‘Haus am Weinberg’ is located in a setting that is at one hand rural, yet suburban. The location of the villa affords pastoral views of the stepped terraces of an ancient hillside vineyard on one side and cityscape vistas on the other. The architects arranged a panoramic view over the city through large sized windows.

House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity

House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 1 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 2 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 3 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 4 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 7 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 8 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 9 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 10 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 11 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 12 House in Chiharada by Studio Velocity 13

House in Chiharada was designed by Japanese Studio Velocity in the garden of another residence in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, so architects Miho Iwatsuki and Kentaro Kunhura specified a cylindrical volume that would contrast with the rectilinear structure of the existing building.

“To avoid facing each other, a round-shaped volume was chosen against the corner of the square-shaped volume of the main house,” explained Iwatsuki. The first of the five staircases wraps the curved perimeter of the house, leading up to a first-floor entrance that is sheltered beneath an ultra-thin canopy.

Inside, a large circular room occupies the entire floor and contains a sequence of family spaces that are divided by four box-shaped volumes with various proportions. Each box contains a staircase down to a different room on the floor below. Arched wooden doors lead inside, while square windows help to draw in extra light.

One staircase descends into the bath and washrooms, while the other three head directly into bedrooms. There are no corridors between these rooms, but extra doors give direct access to the bathroom from the other rooms.

“By intersecting the living space from exterior to interior and from upstairs to downstairs, the hierarchy between the first floor and the second floor disappears and individual functions and sceneries mix together,” said Iwatsuki.

Tiger & Turtle Roller Coaster Turned Pedestrian Walkway

Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-1 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-2 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-3 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-4 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-5 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-6 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-7 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-8 Tiger-Turtle-Rollercoaster-Turned-Pedestrian-Walkway-9

There comes a time when things don’t necessarily serve their original purpose any longer– and this Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain structure is now an interesting piece to climb all over. Having Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth behind the transformation was key.

The walkable outdoor large-scale sculpture is located in Duisburg, Germany. It transitions beautifully from day to night with LED lights emitting bright light from the stair rails; making it an enjoyable walk any time of day or evening. The curved flights of stairs mimics the classical roller coaster, with the visitors climbing afoot via different paths.

Windows 8 Fast and Fun

Awesome!

Microsoft has started its UK marketing activity for its new Windows 8 operating system by installing a giant slide in the Bluewater shopping centre, giving shoppers an alternative to using the stairs and presenting Windows 8 as ‘fast and fun’. Every slider had their picture taken as they went down the slide, received a photo print of themselves and a copy was sent to their mobile.

Minimum Monument – Ice-men by Néle Azevedo

Wow. Such a phenomenal installation!

These Ice-Men by Brazilian artist Néle Azevedo is called ”Minimum Monument”. They were presented as part of the Festival of Queen’s in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The artwork is a collection of hundreds of carved ice-men, perched readily side by side on the steps of custom house in the city of belfast, a carefully prepared intervention that slowly thawed under the heat of the day. The project was selected by the curator of the event as a tribute to Titanic victims,  the ephemeral artwork a powerful expression of the transitory nature of life, and death.
