Office Design: Urban Station, Buenos Aires

office design

The Urban Station is the one of the prides of Buenos Aires as it provides a very flexible workspace for mobile workers. It is located in Malabia and El Salvador Streets where the combination of fashion, art and design can be found. It is a place where a lot of bars and restaurants were located in the city.

Urban station is the ultimate office design where you are able to sit at wide tables, pay by the hour and provides a flexible and convenient atmosphere where you can work through your computer with extra-fast Wi-Fi connection. This commercial design also has the coffee shop area where you can get unlimited coffee, tea, fruit, mineral water, cookies and croissants as part of the fee you are paying.

The concept of this office interior design originates from the solution to daily problems and a response to modern dilemmas. This is an area where a small fraction of the community can work peacefully and collaborate with each other away from whining babies – the mobile works. Urban Station is definitely a solution for “homeworkers” such as small architectural practices, consultants and freelance writers.

Dream Home: The House in the Garden by Cunningham Architects

beautiful homes

The dream home located in Dallas, Texas designed by Cunningham Architects is none other than The House in the Garden. This modern home is a perfect demonstration of how beauty comes about through simplicity and how it always stays on top. The modern architecture is a beautiful creation worthy of two thumbs up!

The modern architects in the firm have included the lush of the greenery as its beautiful backdrop. If other homeowners try to have some trees and plants on their landscape, the beauty of nature comes naturally in this luxury home. The design elements of the entire architecture speak of the relationship between the environment and the building – not as separate entities.

Cunningham Architects did a marvelous job at implementing impeccable house floor plans as they work together with the Hocker Design Group to do the landscaping part of the design. The latter recently received an award coming from the American Society of Landscape Architects for this particular project on – The House in the Garden.

Bistro Chair By Robert Stadler For Thonet

Via Robert Stadler “To design a new bistro chair for Thonet is a touchy task. Initially I was proposed to customize a typical Thonet chair for the Corso restaurants of which’s design I am in charge of. But I preferred to elaborate a new chair instead of producing one more Designer comment on this essential piece of furniture. My starting point was the fact that today chair 214 (historically baptized Nr. 14) is rather expensive, which represents a certain break in regards to Thonet’s history. Indeed the company is renewed for being the first having achieved a world wide distribution of their furniture thanks to it’s ingenious conception based on dismantling. Yet, after more than 40 millions sold chairs the manufacturing of the backpart is still rather traditional. With chair 107 I focussed on a new design of that element which is now being produced in an almost totally automated process.”
