Dental Clinic in Sydney Built Around a Sculptural Wooden Installation

On one of Sydney’s high-end retail streets Pedra Silva Architects were invited to design a high-level state of the art dental clinic. The client requested two receptions with two entrances that could function separately but without compromising the sense of spaciousness and its relationship with people passing by. In the same space there was a stubborn structural column that seemed to impose itself in all the attempts of trying to integrate it into the design. The solution? Answering the brief and magically making the column disappear! Read More

The Floating Flower Garden: An Interactive Installation of Blossoming Vegetation

The Floating Flower Garden is the latest installation by TeamLab, a Japanese art collective of “ultra-technologists” lead by Toshiyuki Inoko. Currently on display in Tokyo is “Floating Flower Garden,” an interactive installation of blossoming vegetation. Located in Tokyo, it’s currently on view, along with the rest of the show, through May 1, 2015. Visitors enter a room filled with floating flowers. But as you approach them the flowers rise into the air, creating an air bubble within the dense forest. Multiple visitors can move through the installation at once as the flowers move away from them and surround them. “In this interactive floating flower garden viewers are immersed in flowers, and become completely one with the garden itself.” Read More

Inviting Bakery Design in Warsaw Exhibiting an Eye-Catching Plywood Installation

Przystanek Piekarnia on Koszykowa Street is the fifth bakery design in this chain opened recently in Warsaw and developed by Maciej Kurkowski. It is located on the ground floor of 19th century tenement house designed by Józef Hintz, close to the Warsaw Technical University Architecture Faculty. The long, rectangular shape of the shop enabled the architects to design two distinctive zones- selling point in the front, and preparation area, staff and storage area in the back.

The preparation area was purposefully left open to the selling point, so that customers could have a peak at staff preparing freshly brewed coffee or sandwiches made on the spot. The walls in the back are kept in delicate gray tones accentuated with existing alcoves. The ceiling and walls of the bakery are painted black to contrast the main feature in the interior- a functional installation made of oiled and stained plywood modules. The structure is made of 746 pieces connected with small wooden pegs. Read More
