Urban Repurposing of a Former Dairy in Paris, France by NOMAA_MARC YOUNAN ARCHITECTES

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: NOMAA_MARC YOUNAN ARCHITECTES

The project involves the conversion of an industrial building dating from the 19th century into 85 units of social housing, and a nursery with space for 40 cribs, as well as a commercial space and a parking garage. The existing building, which has served a series of varied activities – first as a dairy, then for food processing industries, followed by maintenance workshops and a printing business – was built on a trapezius plan around a courtyard covered with an industrial glass roof sheltering delivery docks.

New headquarters of EY in Milan, Italy by DEGW Italia

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: DEGW Italia 

EY is opening its new headquarters right in the heart of the old city centre of Milan, the first workplace of the future in Italy: a totally green, LEED-certified building with revolutionised spaces, cutting-edge technology and an innovative vision of how to work, designed by DEGW.

The new headquarters of EY, located right in the heart of old Milan city centre, has opened its doors as a totally green, renovated organism featuring revolutionised spaces, cutting-edge technology and an innovative vision of work. The project, by DEGW, Lombardini22 brand, has done so by redeveloping an entire block, “welding together” totally different structures built at different periods in time that seemed to be unsuitable for either the latest work methods or an innovative company like EY. The real challenge the project faced was to incorporate all the most highly developed modern-day work processes within the constraints imposed by history, turning every restriction into a fresh opportunity to enhance the space itself.

Pearl Marzouq Complex in Ras, Kuwait by PAD10 Architects

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: PAD10 Architects

Of resemblance to the social housing typology, Pearl-Marzouq complex, ‘Lou’lou’at Al-Marzouq’, embodied the complete opposite; a private housing for the affluent. Built in the early 70’s on al-Ras, a peninsula-like landform; with remoteness from the city center, al-Deira, yet at a distance close enough to be gazed at. With its red roof tiles and warm sandstone walls, the building infused a Mediterranean feel to the Arabian Gulf. For white collar expats partaking in the spur of Kuwait’s economy, it was home away from home. Similarly, it was convincing for well-to-do locals to substitute the privacy of their single residences, seeking a new ‘urbanized’ experience, by claiming their prime villa-like duplexes and penthouses with an elevated vantage point back to the city and its sea. The excitement inherent to this dense typology, was further amplified by subverting the building law to equate the number of floors to skip-stop elevator corridors. Connecting midway to duplex apartments, the area (sqm) was almost doubled, as the building height from its surrounding.

Tel Aviv University Lorry Lokey Management Building in Israel by Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture 

Located on the 200-acre Tel Aviv University campus, the choice of location for the new Lorry Lokey building  was driven by the need to be near the existing Recanati building but it offers the opportunity to influence and address several issues that may contribute to the enrichment and urban coherence of the campus. Sufficiently high to enjoy both the western vista and Mediterranean sea breeze, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture chose to split the building into two interconnecting elements. The proposed scheme offers the architects an opportunity to better insulate functions and accommodate a phased construction if need be. Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture discovered that the splitting the building will enable both a lower and higher entrance and encourage the linking of the adjoining buildings through the respective levels and gardens.

Gymnase Jean Gachet in Saint-Étienne, France by LiNk Architectes

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: LiNk Architectes

Between city center and boulevard, the gymnasium is part of a global project of urban requalification.

The program imposes the creation of a void where sports activities (sports field and climbing wall) will take place. This vacuum imposed by the sporting uses draws from the outset the volumetric draft of the project which is summed up with a regular parallelepiped implanted along the boulevard. From this constraint, the project seeks to radiate beyond its own physical limits. The urban scale then becomes the means of punctuating the main volume and anchoring it in the site and in the city. It is through urban windows that the building directs, locates, and articulates this new urban project in the city. These windows are voluntarily out of scale, and are expressed by point stretches of the main volume. Focusing on existing urban and landscape events (garden, large Sequoia, crassier), they become a pretext for opening views and favoring natural light. The use of extruded aluminum on the façade contributes to the moderation of the building’s mass by means of changes in color, light, and volume perception.

UniCredit Pavilion in Milano, Italy by architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl 

UniCredit has erected a multipurpose building to house the bank’s general meetings, but also exhibitions and cultural events open to the Milan public. It occupies a privileged position against the background of Porta Nuova, beneath the mirror-glazed tower and in a dialogue with the Porta Nuova public gardens. UniCredit Pavilion has no foundations, being constructed on a reinforced concrete podium above the parking facility. Its soft profile is inspired by the shape of a seed, and its materials are natural. A vertically ribbed cage with lamellar larch beams contains a glazed space and supports a rounded, solar panelled roof. The structure opens on the outside through two large wings, equipped with monitors for events open to the general public. Situated on the ground floor is a multipurpose auditorium adaptable to diverse configurations and with seating for 700. An overhead walkway runs along the outer edge of the building and can be used for temporary art exhibitions. On the first floor is a nursery for 50 toddlers, whilst the top level is occupied by a lounge for customer reception and corporate events.
