The newest addition to Momofuku’s ever-expanding Asian-centric network of restaurants, is Kāwi, a Korean-inflected dining room that’s headed up by executive chef and Korean native Eunjo Park, who was formerly at Momofuku Ko.

Located in the behemoth that is Hudson Yards, Kāwi reflects Park’s experience in fine dining and cooking with Momofuku don David Chang both in its design and offering. Conceived by the Canadian firm Design Agency, which has recurrently collaborated with the group, Kāwi’s dynamic interior muddles materials like dark stained oak, textured glass, glazed green tiles and satin brass finishes. In the 52-seat bar and restaurant, geometric millwork and a wood trellis ceiling, arranged in a triangular pattern, creates a memorable atmosphere. The mood relaxes somewhat in the 69-seat main dining room, where red leather banquettes, floral wallpaper and an open plan kitchen set a more convivial tone.

In such a spacious, non-traditional setting, diners can enjoy equally refreshing riffs on Korean staples, with several lesser-known additions as well. Expect small plates like white pepper wings and madai snapper tartare on toast, alongside wagyu ragu rice cakes and spicy Cornish hen stew.

Another nod to Asian tradition comes in the form of the restaurant’s private dining room which, fitted with karaoke capabilities, comes armed with a 14-seat capacity to suit all myriad of occasions. An infinity mirror running the length of the room gives a feeling of spaciousness while a vibrant mural from the artist Alex Proba and a discreet carousel window allows for uninterrupted service. §

A minimalist house is converted into an office in Mexico City

Designing an office space as a stimulus for ideas, Archetonic added a façade of green woven plastic cables, colourful sculpture and private outdoor patios to each meeting room

Mexico City-based architecture firm Archetonic has overhauled a minimalist family home into a workspace in a western city suburb. Defined by its domestic previous life and verdant surroundings, the new design segues the pensive quality of nature into fluid working facilities.

To passers-by, the office’s minimal façade and residential backdrop suggest no trace of the building’s professional occupation. ‘The idea of generating a more cosy and homely working experience naturally and unwillingly comes from recycling a residential structure,’ explain the architects, ‘otherwise the result would have been a more conventional office solution.’

From the wide sliding doors that open up to a patio, to the steel girders overhead, and the small dipping pond, the office indeed breaks convention. Daylight abundantly drapes over dark marble flooring and light wooden wall fixtures in the entrance, producing an interior ambience more akin to a spa or hotel lobby than a reception. Meeting rooms in various configurations orbit this central space, each with an individual outdoor terrace overlooking the east-facing garden flooded with sunlight and calming tree views.

‘We wanted the vegetation, outside garden and terraces to be part of a strong contemplative experience’

Design drama unfolds beyond the western wall, which slides to a reveal a proportionate meeting-cum-living space. Furniture design by Esrawe, Blu Dot and Dejate Querer instills a homely character to the left, and a formal space to the right. A two-tone sculpture by Mexican artist Rodrigo Garagarza from the ‘Matatenas/Jacks’ series sits between the two, acting as a bridge between the room’s twin personalities. Gentle contrasts can be found on the first floor, where white furniture design and fittings are juxtaposed.

Focus is quickly shifted, however, to a façade of green woven plastic cables beyond a swivelling glass wall at the end of the corridor. This winds around to the building’s reverse, filtering in natural views to another set of private workspaces and their corresponding terraces. With a rooftop garden topping the space off, it would be easy to assume that the focus of the project is to encourage an outdoor working ethic. Archetonic rather sees this piece of office design acting as a stimulus for new ideas.

‘We didn’t quite want to inspire outdoor working, nor to deny it. The objective was to blur the limits between in and out, in a way that allow the user to enjoy the outside while inhabiting any space of the project. We wanted the vegetation, outside garden and terraces to be part of a strong contemplative experience.’ §

Text description provided by the architects. Nestled into the edge of a hilltop in South Austin, this new construction home sits on one of the highest points within the city limits, offering panoramic skyline and hill-country views. Due to the steep approach to the house, the building is partially sunken into the earth, allowing for vehicular access and parking below, as well as elevated living spaces above, including a deep shaded roof deck. The split-level design allows the building to comply with city development restrictions while maximizing views out and privacy from the street below.

The building is vertically stratified across the split-level configuration, housing vehicles on the lowest level, public space and secondary sleeping rooms at the rear yard level above, storage and mechanical on the interstitial 3rd level, and a generous master suite with lounge and roof deck on the 4th.  This stratification allows for a wide variety of spatial experiences and view opportunities as one ascends the central stair tower.

The tectonic design reinforces this vertical procession, starting with a heavy concrete plinth that retains earth at the sunken garage and becomes the foundation, exposed steel wide-flange beams which support the heavy loads of the second story and roof deck, and cantilevered glulam beams at the high roof, that taper up to the sky and orient this level to its primary downtown view.

Built-in rooftop planters screen undesirable neighboring views while offering privacy to the master suite. An exterior stair connects the roof deck with the private rear yard, where a generous covered porch shades the west-facing window wall and serves as an outdoor living room.

the dean & deluca stage by ole scheeren, which opened recently in new york’s meatpacking district, offers a dramatic backdrop for food, staff, and the choreography of preparing and assembling the legendary gourmet market‘s delicacies. the platform, which was first launched during design miami/ 2016, comprises two horizontal volumes of mirrored stainless steel, one floating above the other and finished with a sculpted countertop in white corian.

‘stage embodies an interactive, contemporary notion of culture,’ says ole scheeren. ‘the idea, with its reference to a theatrical setting, opens a wide spectrum of possibilities and interpretations of a space where people come together, where stories are being told, where performances take place, and where food merges with the notions of entertainment and culture. it is an innovative platform that can integrate and resonate with diverse local contexts throughout the world.’ the freestanding object allows people to circulate around it as they interact with the staff and watch their food being prepared.

 

 

located in one of new york’s most vibrant and lively neighborhoods, in close proximity to the whitney museum of american art and the city’s high line, the first location of dean & deluca‘s stage in the meatpacking district engages residents and tourists alike. ‘food – its creation, presentation and enjoyment – is one of the most important shared human experiences. however, in this instance we are working at the one end of the spectrum that is by definition the least social: fast food,’ adds scheeren. ‘I conceived stage as a social magnet, as a spectacular futuristic showpiece that attracts and brings people together and encourages interaction between the people making and the people consuming food. in this way it has a fundamental social and human ambition.’
