Weathered Steel Appears To Be Woven On The Exterior Of This New Office Building

TCHOBAN VOSS Architekten has completed a new office building in Saint Petersburg, Russia, that appears to be woven with weathered steel.

The sculptural weathered steel facade of this modern office building is constructed in a geometric grid and presents itself as a dynamic, organically flowing fabric of loose "warp and weft" threads.

The three-dimensional stripes span the rectangular building both horizontally and vertically, while the alternation of flat and protruding modules creates the illusion of woven threads.

When the building is viewed from the side, the horizontal lines at the intersections of the strips appear to thread behind the vertical lines and vice versa.

The name of the office building “Ferrum”, which is Latin for iron, is a reference to the material structuring the facade and a reference to the history of the former industrial site on which the new building was erected.

When discussing why they chose weathered steel for the exterior material, the architects mention, “This corrosion-resistant and extremely durable building material with its characteristic rust-red patina and velvety texture gives the building a particularly striking, expressive appearance.”

Over time, the weathering steel will change color as it’s exposed to the elements.

This Modern House Was Built On The Rooftop Of An Apartment Building

This Modern House Was Built On The Rooftop Of An Apartment Building

Photography by Rungkit Charoenwat

WARchitect has designed a modern wood house on top of an apartment building in Bangkok, Thailand.

Previously, the rooftop was only used to keep water tanks, leaving a lot of empty space, so the owner wished to build a small house there for his own use.

To avoid creating a contrast between this house and the apartment below, the architects designed the house setback from the edge of the building so that no one could see it from public roads.

A 1980s Paris Office Building Has Been Converted Into A New Hostel

 

DesignAgency have completed the transformation of an eight-storey office building, built in 1985, into the new Generator Hostel, located in Paris, France.

 

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

About the project

As the Global Design Partner of Generator, DesignAgency designs each location. Generator Creative Director and DesignAgency Principal Anwar Mekhayech ensures that each hostel has its own unique style that reflects the local spirit and culture of its host city, while also maintaining a common aesthetic and an emphasis on bold and exciting social spaces.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

Mekhayech has an eye on every design detail from architecture and art to food and music, and together with Wyatt and the Generator team, he is constantly travelling the globe, seeking new locations and opportunities to expand the Generator brand.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

Generator Paris is the newest location in Generator’s quickly expanding chain of distinctive and eclectic urban design hostels. Located in the 10th Arrondissement – the trendiest Parisian neighbourhood known for its hip galleries, shops, cafés and bars, Generator stands opposite the prestigious French Communist Headquarters by Oscar Niemeyer, just steps from Canal Saint-Martin and Buttes-Chaumont Park, and a 15–minute walk from the Gare du Nord train station.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

Constructed in 1985 as an eight-storey office block, the property was gutted and transformed by Parisian project architect, Studios d’Architecture Ory & Associés, with interiors by Toronto-based DesignAgency, under the creative direction of Anwar Mekhayech.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

The property follows Generator’s universal concept of affordable and design-driven accommodations in prime locations, with an emphasis on a wide range of vibrant social spaces.

The interior design was inspired by the cinematic experience of strolling Paris’ streets and discovering its romantic moments, changing moods and rich colours. To highlight these themes, Mekhayech and his team created a series of mise-en-scènes that playfully flaunt their simultaneous fiction and reality.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

The vibe is hip and exciting, mixing the concrete/industrial backdrop with warm materials, tactical textures, vintage finds from Parisian flea markets, signature design elements including those from Tolix, Jielde and Tom Dixon, and unique pieces made by emerging industrial and furniture designers such as Blom & Blom, Spain’s Lobster’s Day and local artists including Romain Guillet and You Talking to Me.

The Generator Hostel Paris By The Design Agency

Accommodating up to 916 guests in a range of shared rooms, twin rooms and penthouse rooms with private terraces—all with private en-suite bathrooms—this is the largest Generator property to date.
