BAGNOLET TOWN HALL by Jean-Pierre LOTT

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: Jean-Pierre LOTT

OBJECTIVES

The project’s 5 objectives, which encompass the new development, are to:

  • develop the town hall plaza;
  • create a connection with the existing historic building;
  • close off Rue Benoit Hure (whose only use was to provide access to the Mercuriales car park);
  • design a building whose scale would be compatible with the existing buildings and would help to reorganise the space;
  • open a pedestrian zone linking the cinema and the shops in order to develop community life.

PROTOTYPE FOR INDOOR SWIMMING POOLS IN LA CORtÑA, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

To provide the small rural sites of the area with sports facilities, the Provincial Government ofLa Coruñalaunched a series of architecture competitions, by which swimming pools and gymnasiums have been built in consecutive phases starting from a series of prototypes that each City Council could choose. Thought out as a generic solution for an area with no distinct features, the prototype selected by the municipalities of Oleiros, Melide, Fene and Pobra do Caramiñal indirectly points at the rain as the common aspect of the Galician landscape. A convex roof shaped as a large gutter is thereby proposed as the identifying feature of the project which, on the other hand, is marked by its compactness and capacity to adjust to different urban characteristics.

Cuña house in Lorquí, Spain by AQSO arquitectos office

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: AQSO arquitectos office

This house occupies a narrow plot located in a new residential area. The slender shape and the sloping roof stand out in the landscape as a wedge ascending against the slight slope of the land.

The residence is located in Lorquí, a small town in Southern Spain surrounded by a landscape shaped by eroded hills known as ‘Montes Blancos’. The ascending shape of the house outlines a triangular elevation standing over the terrain, capturing views towards the Segura River´s meadow.

New Technologies Training Center in Santiago de Compostela, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The proposal for the Center for New Technologies of Santiago de Compostela is based on two essential ideas. The first one springs from the conception of the place and its process of topographic adaptation, and the second entails a sense of efficiency. Efficiency having to do in this case both with the speed in which the project must be executed and with the fact, strictly functional, that the resulting building may need to undergo variations in program over the years.

Espace Culturel Marc Steckar in Paris, France by ARCHICLUB

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: ARCHICLUB

Urban approach . The study site is a vacant lot owned by the city of Bessancourt and located a few hundred meters away from the town hall. Its location is in continuity with its historic downtown. The site is marked on the north by the imposing presence of a church. The urban environment of the study site is very mineral, the stone church is massive and reinforces this homogeneity. The building distribution on the site is diffuse and invites us to propose a singular object, an additional object that can join the existing group.

Tree House by 6a architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: 6a architects

The Tree House was developed in response to the mother of a busy family who in finding herself reliant on a wheelchair was also finding herself increasingly confined to a single room.

Her home is a pair of small grade II listed 1830’s brick weavers cottages, joined together in the 1970’s as part of the GLC homesteading scheme.  The ground floor rooms of the two cottages are on different levels and both a half storey above the garden behind.
