c3studio’s interior architecture design for Condo Canal Lachine in Montréal (Québec, Canada) won top honors in the residential/kitchen category in the annual Quebec competition Grands Prix du Design in 2011.

National Library of Public Information in Taichung, Taiwan by J. J. Pan & Partners (designed with Rhino and IDEAS)

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: J. J. Pan & Partners, Architects & Planners

Situated in the middle of the island of Taiwan, the National Library of Public Information occupies a site that is both geographically and metaphorically the confluence of information exploration and urban evolution. The striking form of the building features a “horizontal flow” theme recalling the early irrigation canals in the city’s settlement since the 18th century, as well as symbolizing the fluid data interface in the internet age.

Apartement Écrins in France by Swan Architectes

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: Swan Architectes

On the 5th floor of a Parisian 19th century housing building, an apartment is entirely re-designed to make a home for an art lover. Initially partitioned into a series of small rooms, the dwelling space is now wide open, emphasizing the east/west orientation axis that allows natural light to spread in all day long from side to side. The former dividing wall is stripped down to reveal its plain wooden structure, creating a filter between the dining room and the living room. The open kitchen faces a wall sculpted by cupboards and framing welcoming International Klein Blue niches for the beloved art pieces of the owner.

Monconseil Retirement Home in Tours, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

This retirement home is being built in Monconseil’s Urban Development Zone (ZAC in France), in the northern suburbs of the city of Tours, where this building will be one of the first footprints in the area. The project, which consists of 81 beds spread across three units, was defined from the beginning by specifications that sought to take up and organize an ideal amount of the site’s surfaces. Respecting these specifications to the letter would have led us to a ground floor organization around internal courtyards spread over the entirety of the site.
