LeJeune Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Open Form

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: v2com

The LeJeune Residence, located in the heart of the Plateau-Mont-Royal Borough of Montreal, Canada, was built in 1890. Its transformation carried out in 2013, involved a play between municipal constraints and the clients’ vision.

The borough’s bylaws called for the preservation and reconstruction of the façade’s original architectural components and the clients wanted a resolutely contemporary project. Architecture Open Form addressed the challenge of these seemingly contradictory demands with a creative solution that catered to both.

Zuiderpark-Stadswalzone in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands by Studio Leon Thier

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: Studio Leon Thier 

The project Zuiderpark-Stadswalzone in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands makes a bold statement on all fronts!

It includes: restoration of the ancient moat; an as large as possible underground parking garage underneath; its access via a spiral ramp in the centre of bastion “Baselaar”; a trail from the “Zuiderpark” and the parking garage to the city centre via a path that literally skims the water and travels through the old fortification wall; a brand new city entrance on medieval ground level. All in all, an almost impossible project that could only succeed through a thoroughly integrated approach.

‘t Karregat in Eindhoven, Netherlands by Diederendirrix architects

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: Diederendirrix architects

’t Karregat (1973) has been renovated by diederendirrix architects in conjunction with architecten|en|en and has space for the school, day-care centre and some community facilities. ‘t Karregat, designed by architect Frank van Klingeren, was one of the first multifunctional centres in the Netherlands. Underneath a large continuous roof, supported by steel umbrellas, he left free space without partitioning walls for a supermarket, small shops, primary schools, a sports hall, and a community centre. The building in the area Herzenbroeken in Eindhoven received ample international attention, but it turned out that the experimental lay-out didn’t work. The users themselves soon divided the space with partitions until the space underneath the roof was totally congested.

“We have designed the ideals of that time with current functionalities and techniques.” Paul Diederen, architect diederendirrix
