Speechless…

…The Speech Clinic in Lisbon translates as a place of learning and concentration.  Here,  sound and image are essential elements. It is an empty space filled with a feeling of depth and vibrations…a serene and secure environment for the client;  young or old.  This simple and beautiful project was developed by MMVarquitecto.

Time Out…

…for tea-time hiking…Ban Shan Café brings the mountains down into Beijing.  Robert3 Design selected tactile materials like wood, paper, brick, and ceramic tiles to create a warm, earthy environment.  A perfect spot for us to sip a cup of tea and visit.  By the way, ‘shan’ means ‘mountain’ in Chinese.

Meow Parlour…

…for the little purrs.  Sonya Lee Architect designed NYC’s first cat cafe, Meow Parlour.  Here,  humans can enjoy a cup of joe while being reminded to play.  The kitties roam freely, while awaiting adoption.

Rugged in the ‘Hood…

…but not really.  120 Allen Street, on Manhattan’s lower east side is referred to by New York-based, Grzywinski + Pons, as an aparthotel…a hybrid of an apartment and a hotel.  The facade fits nicely into the ‘classical grittiness’ of the neighborhood, with the industrial interior being  warm, soft, and cozy. The exterior boasts multi-tonal brickwork, zinc panels, coal-fire bricks, rusticated masonry details, and metal louvres.
