Simply Stunning… by ONG&ONG

Designed by architects from ONG&ONG this contemporary house in Singapore is meant to give you “a spatial experience that excites the senses by promoting light.”

Water, light, metal – keys to perfect contemporary design. Gorgeous teal pool as a foreground  with  light spacious and very minimalistic interiors… Perfection!

And the best part, you can open glass partitions and the whole first floor becomes 1 huge space with a pool in the middle. Perfect idea for entertaining , isn’t it? I’m starting to think about getting some properties in Singapore:)…

I think they should rename the company…from ONG&ONG to OMG&OMG….

United Nations Memorial Cube Project by ACME

Every once in a while I’ll come across a beautiful building that I fall in love with. This one isn’t just beautiful outside, the whole concept, meaning and purpose is truly brilliant.

In October 2009 London-based architecture firm ACME was awarded third prize in a competition to design a United Nations memorial. Initiated by the city of Chungju in South Korea, the selected memorial will rest in the city’s UN Peace Park.

The project stands as a metaphor of  what UN is, it’s meaning, structure and system of operation.

“In the same way that the UN is formed by individual nations, the form of the cube is proposed to be formed from smaller cells that come together to form the final shape. The cells represent the collective nature of  the organization, where many different nations come together to create one entity, but without losing their individual identities”.

ACME proposed building contains 1500 seating spaces, 2 conference halls, a theater and exhibition spaces. Also gorgeous open staircase leads all the way up through exterior of the building to the roof, where an open public garden and green roof awaits.
