“Hostel Wadi in Hoge Rielen” in Kasterlee, BELGIUM by Studio Associato Bernardo Secchi – Paola Viganò

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Studio Associato Bernardo Secchi – Paola Viganò

De Hoge Rielen is a place for civic and ecological education in the 300-hectare forest of a former military base. The O-shaped “Hostel Wadi” encircles part of the pine forest, retained as a memento of a disappearing artificial landscape that is rapidly transforming into broad leaf vegetation. A circular, ever variable winter garden towards the pine forest acts as a space of appropriation and continuity between interior and exterior, between groups and the individual. The architecture explores relationships and shared space: the enjoyment of the view occurs on a collective terrain.

Article source: a154 

The construction of student housing and redevelopment of a protected interbellum period building in order to create a hostel.

The construction site is located in the heart of Ghent’s student neighborhood. The area is demarcated by rear facades and the gardens belonging to surrounding buildings. The only access to this inner area is along the street called ‘Sint Pietersnieuwstraat’. This entrance is characterized, in particular, by the office building ‘Het Licht’ (the light), erected in 1930, drawn by architects Fernand and Maxime Brunfaut. An 18th century building stands next to this light-giving city beacon and it too needs to be preserved and restored.

The “Savo” building, located in the Split city center core, was turned into a shopping mall at the beginning of this century and, by a guerrilla action in 2010, was transformed into a hostel in 100 days. Public communications – escalators, panoramic elevator and the staircase were kept, and shopping spaces were partitioned by a system of walls that contain everything necessary – beds, lavatories, showers and toilets. An urban metropolitan character as well as a continuance of the public realm within a historical membrane were performed.

ZAC Boucicaut, Lot C in Paris, France by Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Problems and challenges

The site of the former Hôpital Boucicaut (Boucicaut Hospital) in Paris’s 15tharrondissement is an unusual enclave within a district that is otherwise quite diverse. The Hospital formed a uniform block in terms of use, organisation and architecture. The urban development project proposed by the sector’s town planner Paul Chemetov, maintains this notion of an internal uniformity, in contrast with the immediate surroundings. Very different styles of architecture exist in the district surrounding the sector, mainly dating from the 19th and 20th centuries. By contrast, the urban project proposes a rigorous organisation of blocks arranged together in a series of steady colours (no white concrete and a preference for terracotta) and natural materials, all falling within a sort of historic continuity that preserves the original residential character.

STUDENT HALL OF RESIDENCE + FAMILY HOMES in PARIS, France by Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Article source: Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Street, entrances, depth: the genesis of a coherent spatial arrangement

The project has chosen to link the high density imposed by the depth of the plots to the framework created by the buildings retained on the street. The system of entrances, creating a flow into the existing buildings as well as through to the full depth of the block, is the point of departure for spaces that stretch into the far reaches of the site, the first link in a chain extending to create this spatial arrangement.
