30 public housing units in Paris, France by LAN Architecture

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: LAN Architecture

Bordered by rue des Orteaux, rue de Fontarabie, and the Passage Fréquel, the Fréquel-Fontarabie block is the last stage of the development of the mixed development zone of the la Réunion neighborhood. This effort has sought to reduce the visible level of in-habitability, build new housing, value existing resources, and design nearby public facilities in an effort to create quality public spaces. The project to build thirty housing units has pursued a dual goal: to reconstruct the older urban fabric through small interventions within an overall framework of sustainable development.

The Leslie Hotel is a building, in the Art Deco style, located on Ocean Drive at the heart of the Historic District of Miami Beach. Originally completed in 1937 by Albert Anis, it has recently reopened after a complete transformation. Our aim is to embrace the original architecture and create contrast with our own intervention. Historic elements cleanly coexist with contemporary detailing.

City of Paris approves MVRDV’s restructuring of 1970s superblock in Montparnasse

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

The City of Paris has given the green light to MVRDV’s ambitious plan for the restructuring of the mixed-use urban block Vandamme Nord at Gaîté-Montparnasse in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The large building complex, built in the 1970s, comprises a shopping centre, offices, a public library, a hotel and an underground car park, all of which will be retrofitted so as to reintroduce the human scale to an urban environment largely characterized by wide boulevards and monolithic structures. In addition to the face-lift provided by a new facade, the accessibility and programmatic identity of each of these programs will be improved through a total internal reorganisation of the complex. The building’s restructuring also foresees extending the existing commercial spaces, creating new office space, a new kindergarten, an expanded library, a conference centre, as well as a number of social housing units.

Du Tour Residence in Laval, Canada by Clairoux

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Our challenge was to transform a family home built in the Fifties into a contemporary residence. The same family has owned the property for decades. Naturally, the house is steeped in memories and, in a sense, is a showcase of family history – this is a quality we were asked to preserve. From the outside, we had an interesting prairie-style “canvas” to work with; and inside, we allowed the house’s unique features to guide our design decisions. Working closely with architects at Open Form, we created a serene and elegant space in harmony with its natural surroundings.

AVARICUM commercial and residential complex in Bourges, France by Arte Charpentier Architectes

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: v2com

The Avaricum project is located in a strategic space, on the threshold between the medieval and modern city. The new gateway to the heart of the city of Bourges, in central France, Avaricum reveals itself to the city as a development hub and a unique opportunity to strengthen the commercial appeal of the city centre. In the heart of the space, Arte Charpentier Architects and the Blatter architectural firm designed a major commercial and residential project. The complex extends the city’s existing pedestrian zone toward the north while alleviating the landscape discontinuities caused by post-war urban development.

Maple House in Cañete Province, Peru by Martín Dulanto Sangalli

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: Martín Dulanto Sangalli

This project is part of a personal exploration in which the house is designed as a big solid block, which has been excavated to create spaces within.

This particular construction is a “white box”, which has received several “cuts” through these we are able to appreciate the interior. In between the different volumes the inside has been designed to generate indoor living spaces with different characteristics.
