Notariaat 2.0 – Continuous Landscape in Horebeke, Belgium by Atelier Vens Vanbelle

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Vens Vanbelle

The original notary, which interacts with its surroundings in a very specific way, was put into use only five years ago. Thus it was a mental struggle to respond to the request for an extension. Well conceived design does not tolerate continuation or copy, so a radically different approach was needed. On a six-month period an abstract mirror box on a black base rose along the street. A transparent passageway between these two volumes replaces the former entrance of the building.

55 HOUSING UNITS in LYON, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

“Single-level homes”, la Duchère

The operation resulted from a competition (“Archi’nova, comment habiterez-vous demain?” – Archi’nova, living in tomorrow’s world) launched by the Alliade group. The programs are built independently on the plot and share a central garden. The adopted morphology is diversified, urban in nature and the apartments of considerable quality: wet rooms are naturally lit and conservatories allow outdoor spaces to be incorporated during the summer months. A new typology is proposed: that of “single-level homes” in which a floor level corresponds to a single apartment. Taking up little floor area, they provide the vertical qualities of a detached house: four open faces, an outdoor space and considerable partitioning freedom as well as condominium-owned shared services.

Tanatorium in Zaragoza, Spain by SALAS Architecture + Design

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: SALAS Architecture + Design

The Tanatorium frames very important feelings of its users through the evocation of God and the cavern. An steriotomic architecture formed by a perforated enveloping is born from earth to protect humans when they say goodbye to their deceased people. Though a formal gesture, this concrete cavern opens in diagonal direction to the sun, worshipping this primitive god.

Lamoricière school in Paris, France by archi5

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: archi5

The planning and design of this refurbishment and extension project is the result of a very careful analysis of the context. The school faced several problems caused by the overlapping uses of space by several programmes, leading to confusion in traffic flow and hindered visibility of the nursery school and its access from Carnot Boulevard.

Building Castelli in Santa Fe, Argentina by BIAGIONI/PECORARI Architects

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Ramiro Sosa

Castelli owes its appearance to an interpretation of a recent urban regulation proposed for some “corridors streets” of this low-density area.

In a small corner lot of 11.60 x 16.50mts, the block complies with the mandatory street withdrawals and separates from inner limits lots, which give a certain height to take advantage of views of the Setúbal lagoon and the center of the city.

The extension of the Perrache-Confluence substation in Lyon, France by rue royale architectes

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Anne Rolland

A disappearing act

It is rare that architects summon up the notion of disappearing when designing their projects. The very essence of architecture is the exact opposite. It is there to be seen, displayed, to make an impression. Sometimes, a site dictates the need to adopt a strategy where things are buried or hidden. This programme, at the heart of the Confluence district in Lyon, was intended to renovate and extend an electrical substation, which led the architects to imagine ways of making the object disappear. The project took up the challenge of producing something that would actually fade from memory and vanish over time.
