Poggenpohl’s latest kitchen concept, +Artesio, was featured in the New York Times Home & Garden section. The +Artesio kitchen concept, created by star architect and designer Hadi Teherani, debuted at EuroCucina Milan Furniture Festival earlier last month.

“The customizable +Artesio system includes not only cabinetry but also walls, floors, dining furniture and an independent ceiling with built-in ventilation, lighting and sound, delivering what Elmar Duffner, Poggenpohl’s chief executive, called a “room-in-room solution” that would be ideal for a high-ceilinged loft. A wide range of material choices for the cabinetry — including laminate, wood, glass and leather — allows for further personalization.”

The kitchen at the centre of home architecture

Poggenpohl presents the new +ARTESIO kitchen concept

New thinking has a tradition at Poggenpohl. At the “Eurocucina Furniture Exhibition in Milan (14 to 19 April 2010), German kitchen manufacturer Poggenpohl has presented +ARTESIO, a completely new concept designed in collaboration with Hamburg-based star architect and designer Hadi Teherani. Going far beyond the fitted kitchen typically found in the industry, it provides an all embracing solution in an architectural melting pot fusing furniture design, wall, floor and ceiling.

Poggenpohl established the trend towards the open kitchen many years ago. Looking back, the first step can be seen as the cooking island presented by the company as long ago as 1967 and today the most taken for granted. Featuring different kitchen concepts, multifunctional tables and shelf systems, the years that followed were to produce solutions that all felll under the banner: “The kitchen is moving out of the home.”

+ARTESIO resolutely continues this philosophy and even goes several steps further. Together with Hamburg architect and designer Hadi Teherani, an all embracing concept was developed in which the aspects of building, architecture, home living and kitchen all coalesce. Bearing the typical Teherani signature, the result is a solution that builds a visual bridge between cooking and living.

Doing so – and this is also unique and innovative – the concept embraces all three dimensions: from the floor and walls right through to the ceiling. The latter is visually defined by a function arch with its innovative ceiling that integrates all the elements necessary for lighting, ventilation and sound. This produces an entirely new feeling of space that is inviting and turns the kitchen into the centre of living at home.

Providing  the organisational basis for the new kitchen, a design grid of 130 mm brings together louvred wall and base unit in horizontally linear fashion. The uniform style is based on a newly developed carcase that permits identical front and side sections – a unique innovation in kitchen design. And, as a design element, the stainless-steel band that also extends right the way round the reveal-accentuated structure of the walls with their exquisite wooden surfaces underscores the desired, integrative impression.

In this concept, cooking and eating go hand in hand. As such, a dining table, matching chairs, a corner bench as well as a bench in dark pine are also available from Poggenpohl for the kitchen. The seating’s architectural design reflects the style of the kitchen. Doing so, the horizontally stitched upholstery follows the 130-mm grid of the louvred wall.

With the new +ARTESIO® concept designed in collaboration with Hadi Teherani, planning the kitchen doesn’t begin once the floor plan has been finalised but ideally starts while the architecture of the building or home is being planned. Yet at the same time, the new concept is so flexible, it can also be implemented without a problem in existing kitchen situations. +ARTESIO® will be available from Poggenpohl starting early 2011.

Construction Underway on the First Registered U.S. Green Building LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Homes on the California Coastline

leed logo

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Laguna Beach has long been asource of inspiration for artists (the Plein Air school of landscape
painting), television producers (MTV’s Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County), and other innovators.

Now, this picturesque resort town is the setting for a major development in
the eco-building movement, as Tresor Properties – a premier Laguna Beach-based real estate investment, construction and brokerage firm – builds the first U.S. Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Homes registered project on the California coastline.

With these two luxury oceanfront residences, Tresor Properties is pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council’s highest “green” building rating – a Platinum
designation. According to the Certified Projects Database at USGBC.org, there are only 81 LEED for Homes-certified Platinum projects completed in the world as of October 2009.  

Tresor Properties’ “Pursuit of Platinum” project is newsworthy not only for
bringing a new level of eco-friendly homebuilding to the West Coast, but also
for raising the bar for green living.

“With our Laguna Beach oceanfront residences we’re making a clear statement that you don’t have to sacrifice luxury and quality when you build green,” says Ken Fischbeck, Vice President of Construction and Founding Partner, Tresor Properties. “Not only are we building to the highest level of energy efficiency and environmental sensitivity, we’re also building with functionality, longevity, quality and beauty in mind.”

Other luxury home brands that are committed to sustainability have joined the “Pursuing Platinum” project, demonstrating their support of Tresor Properties ushering in a new era of luxury green homebuilding. These firms include renowned German kitchen manufacturer Poggenpohl and Italian door and window makers STR Infissi.

“Combining high-end design with state-of-the-art building technologies is our passion, and that is why we are partnering with Tresor,” says Ted Chappell, President of Poggenpohl U.S., Inc. “These homes will be among the greenest in the world and the design elements are stunning.”

Other “Pursuing Platinum” project sponsors include Coastal Concrete, Hillcrest Framing, and B and D Plumbing.

The two U.S. Green Building Council Platinum LEED registered homes-in-progress are located at 990 and 992 Ocean Front, in the heart of Laguna Beach’s sought-after “Village” district. Gracing two prime parcels of oceanfront land, the residences will feature views of the coastline, crashing whitewater and Catalina Island.  Designed by prominent Laguna Beach architect Mark Singer – who is known for creating award-winning contemporary homes inspired by nature – the homes will encompass 3,650 square feet and 4,500 square feet, respectively, of casually elegant beachfront living. They also will feature expansive oceanfront terraces, private steps to the beach, pools, spas, elevators, three-car garages and state-of-the-art home automation technology. In addition to their anticipated receipt of the USGBC Platinum LEED designation, the homes also are planned to exceed California’s current strict Title 24 requirements for energy efficiency building by more than 58 percent.

“High-end homebuyers have been waiting for this product – a house that blends luxury living with a beachfront location and environmental design,” says real estate agent Marcus Skenderian of eco-brokerage Surterre Properties in Laguna Beach, who is part of a team representing the homes for sale. “We already have an impressive roster of interested clients and the buzz surrounding the properties is tremendous.”

Estimated completion for the homes is mid-2010. Both residences are offered for sale by Surterre Properties, a leading luxury real estate firm that also is a green company and the only eco broker in Orange County. For more information, interested parties may contact Marcus Skenderian of Surterre Properties at 949.295.5758 or visit his website at www.skenderianproperties.com.
