Viravent, 112 flats in Cenon, France by Martin Duplantier Architectes

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: Martin Duplantier Architectes

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.

32 houses in Poitiers, France by Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Urban project

We wished to create a cluster of houses that is both a privacy area and a smoothed porous space, either from the outside or from the inside of the block.

A service road irrigates the hearth of the cluster. It is marked out on both sides by vegetated areas.

The project is a hybrid space, between a square and a garden.

Block 32, La Duchère, Lyon in France by Tectoniques

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: Tectoniques

Block 32 occupies a strategic position in the vast programme to renovate the Duchère neighbourhood, in Lyon. The OPAC du Rhône housing association has produced a building which incorporates 33 social rental housing units, 1,500m2 of office space dedicated to health-related activities, and has retail space throughout the ground floor. Its central location, at the crossroads between the new Abbé Pierre square and the east / west boulevard, means it is highly visible and its proximity to the athletics hall imposes the need for a resoundingly urban attitude.

COMERCIO 117 in Escandón, Mexico City, Mexico by ARCHETONIC

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Article source: ARCHETONIC

This building is located on Calle Comercio in Mexico City’s Escandón neighborhood.

This architectural project is essentially an intervention on a 1950s building that was previously used as a storage location. It has now become the raw material for a new, 18-apartment housing program supported by the pre-existing structure. The concept for the entire development was based on the use of simple, strong and low-cost materials suitable for the commission. The end result is not only a work of architecture but also a successful business.
