As the doorman to the hotel, Thomas meets everyone that arrives, and leaves the premises. Although young and immature, he is aware of everything that occurs in the building at all times, which is why he develops a keen interest in Ambrosine.

As the only full-time housekeeper in the hotel, she was there from the very beginning. She is very loyal to George and obedient to whatever he says, even if that means cleaning up a murder scene.

Chris Santos - “Rock and Roll Chef”- Manhattan, NY - Restaurateur Throughout his career, Santos has appeared as guest chef on NBC’s Today Show, CBS’s Early Show, The Martha Stewart Show, The Rachael Ray Show, and has been a long-running judge on the Food Network’s most popular series Chopped. Santos has also worked as food stylist and consultant on movie sets including “No Reservations” starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, and ”Hitch,” starring Will Smith. Outside of his chef whites, Santos’ involvement in boxing was well documented in the book “An Unforgiving Sport” by Muhammad Ali’s biographer, and he also pens his own articles for East side Boxing. His other loves— rock n’ roll and tattoos, have been featured in Inked and People Magazine amongst others.

With Chris’s long list of culinary accomplishments, his kitchen calls for some specialty uses. The color scheme in this space will resemble his most recent

restaurant acquired, “Beauty and Essex.” Designed by hospitality firm AvroKO, the space evokes a sense of luxury intertwined with a sense of comfortablility and ease. This concept will be brought through in the use of materiality such as reclaimed wood, making as many surfaces as sustainable as possible, while utilizing luxurious surfaces such as marble and butcher block. The centerpiece of the kitchen will be The Grand Palais 180 range by La Cornue. Supporting appliances by Miele, Sub Zero, and Gaggenau will also be utilized. The result will be a luxurious, sustainable kitchen in a style of its own called “Rough Luxe”

Graphic Design and Industrial design are the ma jor subjects taught at NYU’s new

C

academic building in NOHO. The design is based on the concept of post-modern baroque, inspired by historical landmarks like Versailles as well as postmodern hotels like the Gansevoort Park South in New York. The boutique hotels and dramatic furniture created by Philippe Starck I believe that more is more, especiall y in public spaces. Though most Universities are created in

a minimal style, in this school, the development of posh, highly detailed spaces using rich

materials serves as a background for design studies. The project also utilizes baroque

planning concepts, based on the grid, and establishes strong formal environments

in public areas. The ground floor restaurant and basement gallery exemplify

this approach to design. On the academic floors, a toned

down, more professional environment Is created, but

Description

The upscale restaurant sets an ambient and almost haunting atmosphere for diners. By keeping the color palate on the cool side with greys, blacks, deep purples and plums, with an occasional pop of turquoise, the space is instantly intimate. The focus of the space is the oversized marble bar. Lined by ghost stools, the bar creates an intriguing area where diners can sit and observe the sumptuous unobstructed view of the room. In thinking of the baroque era, I thought of kings and queens and their importance in society. Several images of historical figures from the Baroque era are included in the artwork. For example, a portrayal of Henry VIII and his crimes against his multiple wives is featured in the restaurant. A famous print of his is included, as well as X-rays, on the wall between each bay. Structural bays are also created throughout the restaurant through the use of wooden beams, dividing the banquet seating and framing the windows. The ornate cast iron columns in the public areas are also reminiscent of baroque design and the coffered ceiling in the restaurant contributes to the formal quality of the environment. Although twelve feet high, the ceiling appears to be lower, because of an installation of black and white photographs, each set in a highly ornamented frame or deep wooden molding. The frame materials range from natural wood to painted black details and mirror finishes.

Roof

Description

The roof of this post modern renovation is also developed in the neo-baroque style. It features a large formal garden on the roof, which is reminiscent of the French formal gardens in the baroque era. It is a symmetrical design with a strong sense of axis and a dramatic geometrical layout. There is also a lot of outdoor seating. The flooring in the garden is made of dark gray pavers; the seats are made of limestone. The planter boxes are surrounded by benches and contain butterfly bushes, filled with small purple flowers, similar to the purple color used throughout the project. There is also a green wall on the east side of the garden, which helps reduce the carbon footprint of the building. The garden adjoins the snack bar and an indoor lounge that contains billiard tables and comfortable seating. It provides an indoor recreation space that is accessible all year round, even when the garden is closed. The whole area forms an ideal space for parties and special events for the school. The roof also contains two important classrooms; a computer lab and a small studio for graphic designers. These rooms are ideal for advanced students, who take courses in specialized areas.

CHURCH OF THE SACRED HEART : DETAIL DRAWING

Creating two diaphanous, concentric shells with contrasting

material

properties,

highlights

the

sanctity of the interior by illuminating and revealing it. This Method contradicts the practice of medieval builders who hid the interior behind masses of stone with only small inlets of light.

The stone massing

served a purpose other than concealment, of course, but there is a precedent in churches, as in mosques, to maintain the privacy of the interior space by controlling the light and creating a protected inner sanctum. Here, the architects have thrown open the church interior through the transparent structures set one inside the other: a louvered maple box within a glazed structure made from rectangular panes held in place by a gridded steel framework. The panes diminish in size down to a grid of squares at the south-east faรงade which is almost entirely taken up by a set of giant doors. The doors open on a pivot mechanism and can be adjusted to different positions depending on the weather and on the type of celebration being conducted.
