APARTMENT XIV in Paris, France by studio razavi architecture

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Article source: studio razavi architecture

This small apartment (80 m²) was renovated for a very young couple, both passionate collectors, and their dog. Our concept was to invade the space by design! The existing context is that of a 150 year old Haussmanian apartment with a rigid layout (defined structurally) which we intended to disrupt so that ultimately its inner qualities are revealed. Programmatic clusters respond to specific client needs, creating a landscape inside the apartment and modify the perception of this very classical Parisian layout.

Société Générale Headquarters in Paris, France by Architecture Anne Démians

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Anne Démians

«My role as an architect is to ensure that this important density is consistent with the quality of the site and with each workspace. This density is assumed as a positive constraint, likely by nature to propel us towards the future. Les Dunes project differentiates itself from others by its architectural identity, it offers a new image of modernity through a innovation in construction in a gentle rupture / breakaway from what’s previously been done over the past 30 years. The entity as a whole is more than a building, it is a landscape.» Anne Démians

INTERNET’S INFLUENCE ON TERTIARY INNOVATION

Following two decades of technological upheaval directly related to the Internet, changes in society have emerged with their consequences on our ways of living.

Heralding a new era, digital tools profoundly boost individual and social exchanges and modes of expression. Our working attitudes are thus modified and our relationship to space is shaken. This digital transition impacts work relations and manifests itself in the office, but how are they (re)drawn?

Albini Offices in Cluj-Napoca, Romania by Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Article source: Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

At the junction of two streets and two neighborhoods, one of houses between and after the war, and the other of houses of the 60s, a family of lawyers wished for an office of their own. A new building was meant to rise instead of a small and old family house that would have kept all memories only by its simple existence. However, beyond the intimate memory, the young lawyers have expressed their desire to build a landmark in the neighborhood, at a crossroads. The theme of the project required from us a contemporary expression, solid and transparent at the same time, a grading of spaces and a partition based on their team’s capability. We have worked with samples, as a tailor would do, so as to fit perfectly for those whom we outline the spaces for. The project is a scale exercise. The town planning regulations for a small lot, for a house in our case, made us to carefully analyze all joint formulas for surfaces which put on a simple, indivisible volume. The light withdrawals, sizes and positions of the holes, beyond the connections with interior spaces, aimed to match so as to be able to control the problem of scaling. In the vicinity a block of flats twice as high, and beyond it one three time taller and bigger, made us try transitions and mediations using all means available. The existing mature vegetation, giving up fences and amplifying the public space, combining materials and textures, represents the repertory of elements in fitting into that background. Basically an adequate architecture must find the proper balance from which the customer’s aspirations for landmarks are not to be missing.

Hakusui Nursery School in Chiba, Japan by Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Article source: Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop

This nursery school in Sakura, Chiba was planned to accommodate 60 pupils.

Seiyu-Kai, a local social welfare firm specializing in elderly care facilities approached us for this project. The overarching concept for this plan started with an idea: “a nursery school is a large house.”

Surrounded by mountains and forest, the southern area of the site rests on a gentle slope. Putting this topography to use, we designed the school room to resemble a large set of stairs.
