Duckett House / John Pardey Architects

John Pardey Architects sent us this great second house on the village of Burley, . The concept was based on the idea of creating a building that respects the nature of vernacular buildings by avoiding a single form in favour of what may be seen as an assemblage of forms, akin to the typology of farm buildings.

Uniqlo Megastore / Curiosity

Curiosity has completed the design of the Uniqlo Megastore that has opened near Shinjuku station in . The new design is strongly influenced by the urban landscape and the large entrance, marked with three display towers, recreates a mini-Shinjuku city. As the lighting floor wraps the towers in a glow of light that illuminates the surrounding streets, the shop becomes an active element of the street: attractive, reliable, and secure. The new Uniqlo Megastore adds a civic dimension to its commercial purpose.
