“Beautiful” – Bach (holiday home) in New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds at Bay of Many Coves .

ANT – Monochrome Collage in Paris, France by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

Situated beneath the roof of a 19th century building, Antoine’s apartment is a specimen from a bygone era. The supporting structure has shifted, and the walls are no longer perpendicular to the floor, which, in turn, is uneven and suffers multiple irregularities.

CLO – REFLECTION, SEQUENCE AND CONTINUITY in Paris, France by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

WY-TO’s proposal focuses on leveraging the view and natural light that enters from the north. The objective is to create a different space for each usage whilst at the same time maintaining visual continuity. To do so, storage space and bathrooms are re-organised behind a full-height technical fat wall stretching from one end of the flat to the other, from the entrance to the most
intimate part. This additional technical thickness is covered with full-height vertical aluminium structure according to a cutting-edge graphic layout. The aluminium work integrates seamlessly with the architecture of the flat, adding a vertical rhythm.

MEZ – TRANSVERING TIME in Singapore by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

The client lives in a housing initiative that incorporates both the contemporary and the historical, combining ubiquitous high-rise living with a façade of traditional houses in one of Singapore’s protected conservation neighbourhoods. Located on the highest floor of the conserved shophouses, the studio is small but offers the possibility of expanding vertically into the attic. An elevated platform is introduced to not only access the available space, but also create a double-heighted volume that lends a more generous feel to the apartment and provide an expanse upon which the client, an art enthusiast, can showcase her collections.

Urban Collage in Champigny-sur-Marne, France by Maison Edouard François

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

At Champigny-sur-Marne, respect of the context and the refusal to interpret it led us to take a unique position. The site is a grand ensemble that was built in the 1970’s : a large zone of housing filled with towers and multi-story housing blocks near the old town center. The program asked for an urban renewal plan based on a new town center with shops and housing.

The Pavilions 2013 by Festival des Architectures Vives

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Since the 2011 edition, we have implemented the realization a FAV’s Pavilion. This pavilion allows the reception and the diffusion of public informations about the festival. It is also the starting point of the course of the festival, a meeting place and forum for all visitors. Taking place strategically in the heart of the city, for the 8th Edition two pavilions will be made. The first will be in the usual courtyard of the CCIT Montpellier, Hotel Saint Come and the second will be in front of the new Office of Tourism in the city of La Grande Motte.

For the year 2013, we wanted to entrust the realization of two buildings with two young architects graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier and settled in the Languedoc Roussillon.

Indeed, Robin Juzon will realize the Pavilion in Montpellier and David Hamerman will realize the pavilion in La Grande Motte.

Montpellier Pavilion by Robin JUZON Architect

Juzon Robin is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier (ENSAM) in 2008. Since he joined the agency Olivier Mouton, architect engineer of Nîmes, which, among other work for the enhancement of local heritage.

Their agency is trying to take the time to deal with projects in every detail to produce quality architecture that is aligned with the values they carry. Dual jurisdiction architect engineer offers them greater freedom and autonomy in real projects they undertake. In 2007 as part of his studies, Robin met Gilles Perraudin, architect, with whom he reinforces his taste for Simple Architecture.

The same year, he participated in the contest CIMBETON, for which he was awarded the engineering. Me his travels influence his daily work, notably in Japan, where he discovered a refined and minimalist architecture featuring raw materials. The realization of the pavilion give to him the opportunity to express the architecture of simplicity with which he is still sensitive.

La Grande Motte Pavilion by David Hamerman Architect

David Hamerman graduated as a DPLG architect in 2000 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier (ENSAM) and has a postgraduate DEA degree in landscape architecture from the Institut d’Architecture de Genève in Switzerland (2002).

Different journeys and destinations confronted him with other points of view and references, and he worked as an architect and landscape architect in Geneva and New York. In 2005 he founded the workshop Architectures&Paysages in Montpellier.

The ambition of A&P lies primarily in the realization of projects that tend to reconcile two conceptual platforms, being architecture and landscape. Sun, shadow, light, materiality and the relationship inside/outside are the first stimuli that allow him to elaborate every new design-question. Since 2009, he teaches studio at the ENSAM.
