the crossboundaries studio, founded by architect harsh boghani, designed a stylish pad for a young family in search of a new york-inspired apartment in gujarat, india. in an open and exposed design, the spaces highlight the raw materials in their original form, texture and color. the lively and interconnected areas comfortably host a couple, their baby and a dog, resulting in a successful and bold living space.

 

 

harsh boghani’s design approach included working with exposed brickwork and polished concrete floors. the designer integrated all the elements in a language that uplifts the natural quality of each material, giving the residence a natural and earthy feel. the exposed brick walls envelop the space from inside, bringing out the natural wood furniture that showcases its grain and texture. the interior’s experience varies throughout the day, with materials responding to the sunlight as it changes.

the client was open to combine colors, materials and textures for an industrial-style apartment. the space includes a pool in green and blue tones that light up the social areas. another focal point is the electrical grid designed and customized on site. each and every member was cut to exact measurements and the custom-made components reflect the hues of the foliage around. a set of planters, filled with areca palms, rest by the edge of the railing to complete the space.

the masculine master suite flaunts a wooden king size bed in the center, that has been set against a leather headboard. it rests against a wooden louvered wall paneling and mirrors, which cover the entire wall. it opens out to the attached bathroom consisting of a wardrobes, a bathtub and an elegant counter, cast in concrete with two basins. the thoughtful detailing complements the smart division of spaces.

the project has a magical rhythm that connects spaces through the repetitive use of few materials and wall treatments. every inch of space was thoughtfully designed and executed on site. to add drama, a customized human sculpture was designed that stands by the edge of the pool.

the awakening, by the pool, is a human sculpture conceptualized with a thought to receive positive vibes. as the dusk appears, the human sculpture reflects itself in the pool multiplying the height. the 6′ high sculpture was  sculpted in clay and cast in fiber, and then painted in a rustic blue wash finish. the pool ledge has been specifically designed for the dog who now uses and sun bathes for the same. the polished grey concrete floor merges well with the blue china mosaics in the pool to finish the contemporary design

Bachelor apartments have a bad rap. When imagining a bachelor pad many people would think of a somewhat unloved, unkempt kinda space, that’s crying out for a feminine touch to kick it back into touch. But hold on. These three apartment tours are here to knock that misconception on the head. Home number one is a dynamic design that challenges the stereotypical interiors ideals. Tour two takes New York loft style to an apartment in Bangkok, Thailand, with a stunning bedroom and home workspace setup. Interior number three is an upscale Russian man cave filled with moody monochrome contrasts. All three exude enviable taste, and brim with polished sophistication.

people’s architecture office introduces the ‘plugin learning blox’ in an effort to alleviate the high demand for educational space in china’s rapidly growing city of shenzhen. it also responds to the need for classrooms to support innovative learning as china transitions to a post-industrial economy. the project is a pop-up school that can be rapidly deployed and easily adapted to current and future education models. advances in education call for greater emphasis on self-directed learning, social connection, and systematic problem solving. interdisciplinary project-based learning is becoming a crucial methodology for young people.

designed by people’s architecture office, ‘plugin learning blox’ is organized as a collection of classrooms clustered in project groups around a common area. educational activities are held in the central public space where the community is invited to participate. the project classrooms serve as secondary, breakaway spaces for smaller groups and individual learning. the design team worked with the china construction science & technology company, making use of its prefabricated building system. this same flat-pack modular system was used in the construction of a hospital in wuhan which was completed in only ten days. while all the components were prefabricated in a factory, onsite construction took three days. the building can easily be disassembled, relocated, and reused.

the project was designed and presented as part of the pop-up campus organized by futureplus academy for the 2019 shenzhen-hong kong bi-city biennale of architectureurbanism. as part of the exhibition, PAO’s plugin learning lofts occupied the central common area to support educational activities. the project is a prototype designed to explore space as a third teaching dimension in early age education. the ‘plugin learning loft’ consists of a basic spatial structure with interchangeable infill elements that support learning through play. nearby, crossboundaries presents a similar pop-up school, INFINITY 6, for the 2019 shenzhen-hong kong biennale.
