Blur in Bagnolet, France by CoudamyDesign

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: CoudamyDesign

Paul Coudamy has transformed a butcher shop in Bagnolet (France) into a private home. Renovating professional premises to change them into living accommodation is now a frequent occurrence in Paris and its surrounding suburbs, an exercise in architecture that requires thinking of new concepts of living, interchanging private life and public life. Blur is therefore a transparent environment made up of spaces that never totally discloses its fragile privacy. It is formed of a continuous succession of concrete and glass symbolizing a period that combines work and pleasure in a single movement.

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

The Nedisco factory is one of the most prominent buildings in Venlo. The conversion and restoration of this national monument forms the crux of the Maaswaard Plan, the urban redevelopment to the south of the inner city. The complex – built from concrete, steel and glass – is an exceptional example of industrial architecture, which can be accredited to The International Style with the foundational theory of air, space, and light.
