l’Ecole des Beaux Arts de Versailles Complements Historic Versailles, France

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

In the town of Versailles, France, much of the architecture stands as it was hundreds of years ago, when Louis XVI surveyed the streets from the windows of his vast château. That all changed recently when Platane Beres and his team at Platane Architecture won a competition to transform a building in the heart of this quaint town. Called l’Ecole des Beaux Arts de Versailles or The Versailles School of Fine Arts, this space is located less than 500 meters from The Château of Versailles.

Intexure Live-Work Studio in Houston

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

After working several years in a downtown warehouse loft, Intexure’s owners, married couple Russell and Rame Hruska (both architects), transformed a vacant urban lot that had essentially been a garbage dump for many years into the site of a new Live-Work studio for their office and home. “It took a great deal of personal risk and sacrifce but has paid off with a building that represents our values”, says the couple. Furthering the process of revitalization, Intexure then developed a series of sustainable homes adjacent to the studio which balance the need for urban density with appropriate green space and areas for gathering. “What we are really seeking to do is not just design buildings but create a community”
