LE DIAMANT THEATER in Québec, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte architectes in collaboration with STGM architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Saucier + Perrotte architectes 

Our approach is based on the notions of landscape and geology that characterize the built environment of the historic district of Old Québec. Nearby, the strong presence of the Porte Saint-Jean and the defensive system that constitutes the Fortifications of the city of Québec reiterates the dual nature of these buildings that are both architecture and  landscape. Though the surrounding buildings belong to a variety of styles and eras, their  common denominator is based on a strong relationship with the mineral, and an  architectural composition in horizontal strata. This reading of the city as stacked stratum  transcends time so that we find it in all the surrounding buildings. Thus, there is a timeless horizontal frame that serves as an anchor for the realization of a contemporary project in continuity with the old fabric of the city.

La Quintaine in Chasseneuil-du-Poitou, France by atelier d’architecture King Kong

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Article source: atelier d’architecture King Kong 

The town of Chasseneuil-du-Poitou wished to build a new hall for festivities and cultural events in a redevelopment area centred around the railway station. Designs for the new Hall had to respect the Technological Risks Prevention Plan implemented in the area. The building designed by King Kong was therefore positioned at a tangent to the outer perimeter demarcating this zone, oriented so as to limit noise pollution for those living in housing to the south of the plot.
