Fouquet’s Barriere hotel in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Article source: Maison Edouard François

A set of seven buildings including real and pastiche Haussmannian styles, as well as a building dating from the 1970’s, formed a nearly complete urban block in the Triangle d’or (the corner of the Champs-Elysées and the Avenue Georges V). The restaurant Le Fouquet’s is the flagship property of the Barrière company. The goal was to unify these disparate elements and to make it the next parisian “Palace”, thus establishing a strong new image.

Palacio de Hierro Antea Façade in Queretaro, Mexico by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

The classical department store is defined by a strict physiognomy: a box with four façades. This constraint was the principal challenge to be overcome in the project. Dematerializing the material was the guiding concept used to create diffuse limits based on the horizontality of the solid and void elements to achieve an effect of floating layers.
