Nievre’s Deparmental Archives in France by architecture patrickmauger

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: architecture patrickmauger 

The rundown building housing Nièvre’s departmental archives has undergone rehabilitation and been provided with an extension. Two new buildings are positioned in parallel with the existing rehabilitated building.

The first, giving onto the street, is slightly stepped back to create an esplanade marking the public nature of this institution. The façades are formed from screen-printed glass panels with different gradations and levels of transparency that create reflections and random vibrations.

Feisteinveien in Stavanger, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This extension to a single-family house in Stavanger was made to make room for a growing family in a city which has become increasingly dense over the last decades due to the economic boom related to the area’s oil industry. The building authorities accepted extension beyond original restrictions but wanted a modern expression, and found common ground with the architects in letting the existing building be preserved as a clear and city-typical shape. Stavanger has also recently been host to the Norwegian Wood project, part of Stavanger 2008 – European City of Culture, and there is reason to believe that the municipal authorities in Stavanger has achieved a more clear and mature architectural policy through the specific focus which that project gave.
