Unusual Recording Studio Design in Seoul Dressed in Brick

Nonhyun Limelight Music Consulting by Dia Architecture

This modern recording studio design impresses with an unusual facade free from windows. Within a geometric architectural language, the recording studio unveils simplicity and an inspiring play of opaque and semi-transparency. Imposing a modern touch in the densely populated residential area on the inner side of Dosan-daero (in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea), this sleek brick structure sheltering the Nonhyun Limelight Music Consulting recording studio was imagined by Dia Architecture as an eye-catching building covered in red bricks.

A geometric architecture following the slopes of the stairs makes room for skylights at every level. Inside, the recording studio occupies the second and third floor, where the windowless outer wall served as support for an open space. Spreading over a total of 589 square meters, the recording studio dressed in surface-cut used bricks was photographed by Kyungsub Shin as to reflect the building’s integration in the surrounding multiplex housing.

An office space on the fourth and fifth level was designed to resemble a luminous transparent box. This helps relive the weight of the structure and visually contributes to the overall contemporary appearance. Supported by a V-shape steel column in the ground floor car parking area, the building was imagined as a breath of fresh design disguised as a brick building.

+POOL installation to open at the Ace Hotel in NY next month

Since Archinect first mentioned the Family and PlayLab’s +POOL in 2011, the initiative has made significant progress toward realizing the world’s first water-filtering, floating pool in New York.

After two wildly successful Kickstarter campaigns in 2011 and 2013 along with international acclaim, the non-profit support group Friends of +POOL teamed up with the Ace Hotel in New York to present a free public art installation,“Doing Something Big When No One Asks You To Do Something Big.”

Opening on February 5 at the Ace Hotel Gallery, the interactive installation will visually depict the four years of research and development that led to the creation of the +POOL. The installation will feature floor-to-ceiling wall drawings of the +POOL that explain its design process and reveal its latest discoveries and anecdotes.

All are welcome to the opening reception hosted by +POOL’s founders and board members on February 5 from 7-9 p.m. The exhibition will be open 24/7 until March 1.

KCC Switchenland Model House / THE_SYSTEM LAB

Architects: THE_SYSTEM LAB
Location: Yeongcheon-ri, Dongtan-myeon, Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea
Area: 1773.0 sqm
Photographs: YONGKWAN KIM

From the architect. This house directly reflects the first image pops up in people¡¯s head when they hear the word “house” The elevation which looks like a gable roof house cut in half provoke people curiosity. Familiar bed, sofa, and dining tables shown in between polycarboate which remind of fluffy curtain make the viewer imagine a house they want to live in. And they enter into Switzen Land while imagining their future, living in that house.

Design Intention:
Through the form of gable roof house, viewer immediately perceive the place as a house gallery. In addition, this gallery emotionally approaches to visitors by reenacting the everyday scenery with polycarbonated curtain and white furniture shown in between it.

Formative Characteristics:
Simple form of rectangular box with triangular roof that everyone would have drawn it at least once when they were young reflects our common image of “house”

Consideration of usability and safety:
As actual furniture need to be displayed in elevation, clear polycarbonate is used to avoid any damage to furniture while allowing visibility.

Consideration of productivity and price:
Polycarbonate curtain applied on elevation is produced and assembled in factory and could be easily installed on site and as a result, it reduce the construction period.

Environmental-friendly:
Recycled furniture is used on elevation display.

Future of Paul Rudolph’s brutalist Orange County building still uncertain

But Steven M. Neuhaus, Orange County executive, seems determined to pursue the teardown plan. […] He recently vetoed a proposal that would have allowed the county to sell the center to Mr. Kaufman.

County legislators meet on Feb. 5. […]

But many people who spoke at a public hearing last month in Goshen endorsed Mr. Kaufman’s proposal. It would save the center, potentially save the county a fortune, bring in tourist dollars and even put the Rudolph building on the tax rolls.
