Located in Moscow’s Gorky Park, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art has opened in the end of 2015 to the public for the first time.
The building, which has been designed by Rem Koolhaas’ international studio OMA architects, hosts the gallery of Russian business person and art collector Dasha Zhukova. The project sees the renovation and reuse of the 1960s Vremena Goda Pavilion, with a new program containing diverse exhibition, learning, research and event space configured to showcase the best contemporary russian culture.
The interior facilitates two levels of exhibition areas as well as a creative center for children, a shop, a café, an auditorium and a variety of offices.
The new building is a groundbreaking preservation project that has transformed the famous Seasons of the Year (Soviet Modernist restaurant built in 1968), into a contemporary museum.
The new armchairs are copies of the original 1960s. Together with the project architect of OMA Ekaterina Golovatyuk and architect Timur Shabaev, the chairs were produced by Lensvelt Contract specially for the museum café and restaurant. Large 1960’s armchairs are deliberately chosen for the atmosphere to relax the guests, the tables are moved a little further apart so that everyone can talk freely without loud music. On the backside, the armchairs with large zippers are designed to store the folders in a slipcover. The choice of the two different upholstery was accomplished with Suzanne Demisch from New York.

OMA’s first scientific building laboratory and technical school, Lab City CentraleSupélec in Paris Saclay, was completed in September of 2017.
OMA’s design is based on an open learning landscape in a transparent box.
The building is part of a larger urban planning scheme, which also encompasses the surrounding area. OMA designed a diagonal street, which runs from the future subway station to the nearby Supelec school. This line continues in the new building as the main walkway.
Instead of a classical lab with venues and hallways, “lab city” is conceived as an open landscape, meant to stimulate transparency and interaction between the various ranks.
The building is designed as a rectangular low-rise building with a glass roof. Only the core, the so-called Forum, has a stacked volume. This section contains the atrium and features such as a sports hall and offices.
A main artery runs through the center of the complex, linking a neighboring technical facility to the location of a future subway station.
A network of smaller passages connects with this main road, which forms the basis of the city grid.
Offices, laboratories, a library and a restaurant are designed on this grid, with blocks in different sizes. There is also a plaza-like space filled with tables and chairs, an amphitheater style auditorium and a number of elevated terraces.
The cognac coloured Blocks seats and chairs are designed in collaboration with OMA Architects.
Realization mid 2017.

Marlies Rohmer’s design for the Broad School Houthaven Amsterdam is inspired by the architecture of the Amsterdam School. The building accommodates two existing primary schools, a day care, after school care, business premises, a catering area and kindergartens.
They made use of sustainable materials. The materials in the classrooms – glass, concrete, smooth stucco – reflects all the noise. This gave the acoustic damping special attention. The solution was to place 6 row high stealth cabinets.
The community school Houthaven will form the link between the old and the new Spaarndammer Houthaven. Houthaven is a location where freighters from all over the world unloading their tree trunks a century ago and is (as seen from the IJ) behind the Silodam.

Casper Schwarz was commissioned by CBS to make a complete design based on the following: realize an open and transparent working environment that makes both concentration and communication possible. C4ID designed in 2008 a basic office concept that can be implemented on all floors, suitable for all departments. Fixed workplaces, shared facilities in the middle zone, inviting consultation rooms, separate break rooms and sufficient storage facilities. Apart from materialisation and use of color, a zone has been divided in which all desired facilities are included. Here, acoustics, light and vision play an important role. In connection with the acoustics of the sound-damping Stealth sliding door cabinets of Lensvelt were used.
