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.

ANNDENNE’S CULTURAL CENTER in Belgium by LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Article source: LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Andenne’s Cultural Center’s extension has not been designed as a single appendice filling a lack of space but was rather thought as an opportunity to deal with complex problematic which were restraining the fullfilment of the building. Indeed, its situation in a disparate urban fabric, between supermarket and parking area, didn’t give approriate visibility and accessibility to the Center. At the same time, this location reveals a great potential on the landscape scale. On the banks of the river, the site is perceivable from the main road between Liège and Namur.

Project Background: There’s a dilapidated industrial factory, not far from Zibo train station, is located behind the bustling downtown. The industrial factory was established in 1943, and it was originally a pharmaceutical factory. However, as the developing of urbanization, the factory was forced to stop and move to new district. All the equipment had been removed, only left a empty factory. After abandoned for years, the factory is now have the turn of fortune’s wheel. The factory had it potential of long-span structure and its earthy texture. It became a desirable place to visit for many artists. Thus, the factory transforms the industrial relic to the contemporary art museum. The reconstruction area is a rectangle shape about 3800 sq./m, include 3 factory and a few unequal-sized storage. It was hardly to see some trees and plant, because there is a civil air defense facility under the concrete floor.
