CHILD DAY CARE CENTRE in Brussel, Belgium by BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Article source: BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

This Child Day Care Center will house 68 children in the center of Brussels. There is limited space available in this building block that also hosts 3 schools, a music academy, after-school care & many more organizations to guide children from the day they enter into Day Care till the day leave school at the age of 18. This project is situated on the first floor of an existing building block. In order to get on this floor there is a concrete path to guide children and parents to the entrance. The same vocabulary of concrete curves is repeated in the terrace on the second floor that serves as external playground for the 68 children of the Day Care Center. In order to limit the weight of the concrete construction a system of modulation of supporting beams of the concrete terrace was designed. This project has been awarded the price of sustainable exemplary building project of the city of Brussels – year 2013 because it is designed to be a very low energy consuming renovation/extension of an existing building.

Hicks Orthodontics in Lenoir City, Tennessee by BARBERMcMURRY architects

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Article source: BARBERMcMURRY architects

Hicks Orthodontics is a comprehensive care practice with an existing location in Knoxville, Tennessee. In late 2012, BarberMcMurry architects was approached by the practice to help design a modern facility to house an expansion into an underserved rural location approximately 5 miles northwest of Lenoir City in East Tennessee. The client asked that the new building respect the warmth of the rural context while also providing a progressive image which aligned with their vision. Located off of U.S. 321, the site is situated for maximum visibility from passing traffic. The location is also strategically placed close to local schools to serve the orthodontic needs of that population. Adjacent parcels to the southeast remain undeveloped and densely vegetated. A gas station & convenience store is located on the parcel immediately to the west. We positioned the building away from the gas station and carefully placed programmatic elements within the building to leverage and focus views toward the natural landscape.

Mother & Child welfare center in Paris, France by Rh+ architecture

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: Rh+ architecture

The project is located in the south of Paris, in a small curved street, surrounded by historical and typical french buildings of the industrial period. The low density of the neighborhood, the street shape in addition to a 2.5m difference in height give the impression of a small provincial town. In fact, the curve of the Gustave Geoffroy street gives this execeptional site several constraints that have to be used to generate a well-integrated project to its urban fabric.
