A bold addition has been added to the landscape on the South bank of the Thames. The Shed is a temporary structure designed by Haworth Tompkins architects in front of the National Theatre. Architects Haworth Tompkins and theatre consultants Charcoalblue conceived the project and The Shed was designed and built in a little over a year.
This was a collaborative process that has been described as more like putting together a theatre show than a traditional construction project, which included the architects, the National Theatre and the theatre-makers who will be working in The Shed.

Old world luxury and elegance are given a modern twist by Studio Alexander Fehre in the historicWeltspiegel movie theatre in Cottbus, Brandenburg, Germany. With a history spanning over one-hundred years, the building is one of the oldest cinema buildings in Germany and has finely carved its mark in many childhood memories.The architecture of the building originally dates back to the Jugendstil movement which draws a lot of elements from traditional German printmaking; the style uses precise and hard edges, an element that was rather different from the naturalistic style of the time. However, the new architecture calls for an exciting contemporary universal interior design with references to early film history thus creating an exciting merge of history and the modern age.
By looking at these first two pictures you may think these are two different spaces but in fact they are part of the same apartment. By mixing a 17th century distinguished apartment and a 19th century industrial art loft, this 4,951 sq. ft. home is just plain killer. The ceilings, floors and moldings in the older portion are amazing. I love modern art juxtaposed with classic architecture. Speaking of art, this place is full of some really neat pieces.
The partners behind this incredible project include managers, art collectors, lawyers and architects such as Vudafieri Saverino, who conceived the interior. This range of ideas and creativity has given Pisacco a mix of sleek style and a bold creativity through creating a space that loosens the boundary between dining and service areas most notably in the open bar area. Pisacco is spread across two floors: the upper floor at street level, opening onto Via Solferino 48 (20122 Milan), which encompasses the bar and cafe, and a lower level, housing the restaurant, flooded with natural light through large glass windows which open onto a small garden that was originally a stretch of the Conca delle Gabelle. Throughout the space, architects Tiziano Vudafieri & Claudio Saverino have honored the original structure. The exposed brickwork on the bold arched ceiling has been tastefully enhanced with a lightly coloured paint inviting light into the space, thus retaining the building’s original features and ensuring that the bistro retains its authentic core.
