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…
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.
