The project is my final year design thesis (2007). The building acts as a catalyst for future development around the abandoned mining lake, and is a reminder of the glory days of tin mining in the country.

Rebière 21 Housing in Paris, France by Hondelatte Laporte Architectes

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Article source: Hondelatte Laporte Architectes

The building is part of a major and innovative operation to improve the urban environment around Porte Pouchet bordering on Paris (17th district), the Parisian ring road, Clichy and Saint-Ouen. Nine teams of architects worked together to create 180 housing units, as part of a workshop named “Autrement Rue Rebière” and chaired by Paris Habitat and Périphériques architects. The idea of narrowing the section of Rue Rebière that runs alongside the Parisian Batignolles cemetery leads to recovery a strip of almost 600m in length and 12.60m in width.

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Studio Kalamar d.o.o.

Following the expansion of their production, the company pharmaceuticals company Galex commissioned a new structure adjacent to their existing laboratories building from 1999. Connected with the old building by an overhang, the new structure houses offices on the upper floor and manipulation areas on the ground floor. Its pronounced horizontal form echoes the outline of surrounding wheat fields, the natural setting also influences the subdued selection of materials and colour scheme: concrete elevations are complemented by details in black and silver metal.

Renovation of Rahova Commodities Exchange in Bucharest, Romania by Re-Act Now Studio

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Article source: Re-Act Now Studio

What could we do in the context of revitalizing architecture to keep a more vivid picture of an old building with (even partial) special features? It is a question to which we can respond in two ways. The valuable part – the special one – will be restored and the unworthy one we rebuild, complete, emphasize – in a first variant – absolutely in the same stylistic story as theold valuable one, or we dress it – in a second variant – in a completely new concept in major contrast with the existing situation.
