Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Mario Buonamici Architettura

The project has two objectives: on the one hand, and dialectically interacts dynamically with the surrounding context, both the connotation of natural green park is artificial, urban and contemporary Quarter Island; on the other hand, gives body to a structure characterized by great flexibility of composition and organization, in full respect of public destination and functions identified. An architecture that shapes, materials and design, integrates and permeates in the green, while maintaining its definite individuality: a distance dialogue between artificial and natural. The building itself contains the souls formal and organizational of the park: the geometric rigor of the design of the meshes of the fields and the orderly organization curvilinear forest circular; However, it reverses the order and spatial relations and displacement: the plans are settled and are arranged vertically in overlapping; warps the closed circular logging is deconstruct opening in sinuous waves and irregular, which, like the natural scenery which surround, taking forms and aspects always different and define forms and public functions intended to evolve and change according to the needs of its users.

Salorge Town Community Building in Pornic, France by Atelier Arcau

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Arcau

The town of Pornic’s elected representatives expressed their “deep-rooted” commitment to regional tradition, immediately excluding any other architectural form that did not match the traditional volumes and templates of the Pays de Retz, such as roofs with gable roofs, covered in tiles.
Because the Communauté de Communes (Town Community) Centre had to fit into a business park already denoted by previous building projects (hospitals, police station, office buildings), which had all been subjected to these regulations, we chose to make a different contextual offer in relation to the site and its history.

The former Palencia Provincial Prison complex was created at the end of the XIX century, built with brick bearing walls following the “neomudéjar” style, and composed mainly of four two-storey wings and some other with one storey. On this building was planned a comprehensive refurbishment to transform the former use and convert it into a center that promotes the social and cultural activity in this part of the town.
