Three periods and three buildings: the Renaudin house, a large 19th-century mansion resting peacefully at the foot of a listed cedar tree, overlooking gently sloping  grounds very close to the town center; a bland extension from the 1980s; and the new building designed by the agency that highlights the grounds’ plant-life heritage and its topography in order to clarify the way this venue is seen and is incorporated into its select environment.

Le Grand Plateau in Lake Heron, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

At our first visit to Lake Heron in the Laurentides, we ended up in a forest enflamed by fall. We borrowed a small path to reach the top of the site where we found a clearing atop a promontory. We could contemplate the lake which was about 60 meters below. Small but sinuous, it gave the impression that a meander hid the invisible part of a larger lake. The silhouette of the mountains loomed in the distance. The scenery was of immense beauty. We all gasped discovering the site that day. We went down quietly through different ecosystems dotted with magnificent rocks. I remember a small forest of spruces with a constricted path the caused a rhythmic vertical which filtered the horizontality of the water.

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

Article source: Van den Ven Architekten

A modern and beautiful dream villa with Barroco Stone Panels. For a renovation project Van den Ven Architekten chose for the partial covering of the façade of a villa with the Barroco Modern Coppergrey to give the villa a more modern look. The project is situated in a nature rich environment in a Dutch village. The architect wanted to integrate the villa with its surroundings but at the same time realize a villa that is modern and one with the nature. The choice is therefore logical to use natural materials. The use of the Barroco Stone Panels enables these features and now the villa integrates perfectly with its surroundings. The choice of using the Barroco Modern Copper grey is because of its color pallets blend perfectly with the villa in its environment and make the villa look astonishing and modern.
