Monday Morning Photo(s) Airport Edition

For today’s Monday Morning Photo(s) we have a look at at super cool project at Russia’s Koltsovo Airport a VIP Lounge by Nefaresearch.

When asked to come up with a concept for the VIP lounge of Russia’s Koltsovo Airport, the team at Nefaresearch won over the client with their initial sketches. The scheme addresses the diversity among airport inhabitants at any given time on any given day. Many business travelers treat the interval before and between flights as valuable working time; to them, the airport becomes a second office.

The over all structure of the space id design based on the shape of the nearby Ural Mountains, the studio describes the design as a ‘labyrinth’: a number of connected tunnels that ‘allow visitors to explore a variety of impressions within a relatively small space’.

Visitors are guided through the space with light…

T PARK by CUBE Architecten

From the architect. In August 2013 the City of Amsterdam gave the go-ahead for the redevelopment of an old store room under one of their offices on Jodenbreestraat in Amsterdam into a multifunctional plaza. This plan is part of the new flexible housing concept for their offices, which can be densified through realization of such plazas. CUBE is, after a closed competition, asked to develop this 530 m2 plaza. According to the City of Amsterdam it had to become an attractive area with an extraordinary appearance.

The semi-public plaza can be used for different things, working, collaborating, meeting, or eating and drinking the organic coffee, juices and sandwiches from their bar and there is also the possibility for holding presentations and meetings.

Monday Morning Photo(S) Fashion Edition

For today’s Monday Morning Photo (s) we have a look inside Kopenhagen Fur designed by Helle Flou in the old A.N.Hansen mansion from 1835. The interiors have a very sophisticated look that work with the classic elements of the mansion. The Kopenhagen Fur building dates back to 1800′s hence so many neoclassical features.  Gilded french doors, detailed wall moldings and beautifully ornate crown molding are some of the old design details Helle preserved.  The choice of black and dark mahogany wood furniture contrasts ideally with the rest of the bright space.  

You can see more of their work here

Tailored Retail Design

CK was appointed to create a concept for Joseph Cheaney’s new store in London’s iconic Jermyn Street, whose own history dates back to the 17th century, and is know worldwide for its high quality British artistry and craftsmanship and is home to some of London’s finest men’s tailors, shirt makers and suppliers of leather goods: the perfect place for Joseph Cheaney’s new store.

The store is divided into two different areas; the front area echoes their factory and is designed to emphasize the fact that Cheaney manufacture by hand in England, the second area is designed to feel like the boardroom area where portraits of the founders are hung
