Student Residence 179 rooms in La Verrière, France by ITAR architectures

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Article source: Metropolis Communication

The residence is the first apartment building on the site of the urban renewal program implemented around the station. It is perceived as a flagship project, intended to strengthen the town’s identity. Outlines, scales, volumes and materials, defined in particular during the studies carried out for this “pilot” building project, enabled the definition of urban rules that will shape future projects all around it. It is a compact building where the work on the composition of volumes made it possible to integrate it into the loose urban fabric while simultaneously restructuring the latter. The complex composition of the façades is rendered visible across the entire length of the building through the differentiation of volumes, setbacks and materials. The prow black enameled brick marks the corner of the two future streets. Splitting the two volumes creates a more diverse morphology in the existing cityscape, while also marking the linear rhythm of the façades through fractures of several stories and top floor setbacks creating a greater sense of lightness.

Cascade House in Hampstead, London by PATALAB Architecture

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Article source: PATALAB Architecture

Transformed into a vessel of natural light.

Situated in the heart of Hampstead Village, our proposal for this once rambling 18th century listed building was developed with local conservation authorities to respect the picturesque setting of the High Street and Perrin’s Court. As a result the external appearance harmonises with the historic setting, whereas the interior by contrast enabled us to design a series of bright and contemporary spaces enhanced with bespoke joinery and panelling.

Krøyers Plads is a five-story housing project with a significant location in the centre of the Copenhagen harbour area designed by Danish architects Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects and COBE. The award-winning and Nordic Eco-labelled project is now finished. The project is based on a hyper-democratic and contextual approach where folded roofs and architectural heaviness create a dialogue between old and new, and a modern, empathetic interpretation of the architectural uniqueness of the old Copenhagen warehouses.
