Courthouse Béziers in France by Ateliers 2/3/4/

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Ateliers 2/3/4/

Open on to the city by nature, more than any other, a public building is an urban component. It signifies, invites, brings the city alive. The court plays on the duality between the urban monumentality of a judicial institution and the serenity necessary to handle delicate cases that affect people’s lives. Between stacks of three layers of rock, as stone blocks in a quarry, extends a landscaped oasis that filters the light, tempers the atmosphere and links the areas accessible to the public. The voids qualify the solids: at each level, projections and patios locate between the blocks. The stepped masses encourage the light to enter, creating internal landscapes to protect the premises from any intrusive view. As such, security of the facades and confidentiality are provided with ease.

Article source: DRC Studio

This contemporary home designed by Denis Bodino is modeled after a California-­‐style villa. Its pure and simple lines are highlighted by the glass and polished stainless steel, which contrast with rough-­‐hewn natural building materials such as stone, wood and Corten steel.

The property is perched above the city of Cannes, in an exclusive setting with a panoramic view over the surrounding area.

Stockholm Central Station in Sweden by Tengbom Architects

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Tengbom Architects

250,000 people pass through Stockholm’s central station on a daily basis. If you were one of them, you would not have missed all the development that has been going on here between 2008-2014 – and a station that has been fully functional the entire time.

In 2008, we were asked by Jernhusen to modernize and develop large parts of Stockholm’s Central station – one of Sweden’s most important crossroads – and make it possible for the station to manage the challenges of both today and tomorrow. Not least the constantly increasing number of travellers. Due to the requirement for many separate improvements, we were given the opportunity to develop a thorough concept for the development.

”Our vision was to improve the experience of the visitors through modernization and design that exceeded their expectations and at the same time preserve and highlight the fine qualities of the old building”, says Mark Humphreys, chief architect.
