City Municipal Office Complex in Bordeaux, France by ECDM Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: ECDM Architects

Our proposal is for a unifying building, a building that represents both the Mériadeck neighborhood and the old city, that participates in defining an urban landscape and carries the values of a society more open to its environment. It was therefore around the creation of an open space, a space of convergence and exchange that we wanted to organize the program, a space framing the city, organizing open programs and services around the borders, a space animated by its users and actors. It acts as a beautiful and lively space, where the dynamism of Bordeaux is displayed for a close and urban administration.

Community Centre Herstedlund provides the framework for joint activities for a new residential area, housing approximately 600 families.

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Park Architecture

Design strategy

The brief called for a 3.500 sqm combined community center and sports facility with emphasis on sustainability both in construction and use. But rather than applying the traditional repertoire of green technologies to the building, after initial concept design was developed, the client called for an architecture that in itself embodied the idea of the sustainable approach. A precise objective that called for bold strategy.
