Terrace 9 in Nanterre, France by AZC – Atelier Zündel Cristea

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: AZC – Atelier Zündel Cristea

The project is part of Seine-Arche development which concerns a wider territory in line with the axis of Defense. Taking into account the natural relief and coexistence of various networks which pass through, the Seine-Arche development required the upstream of colossal structures. Aiming to attract here new populations from all over the department of Hauts-de-Seine, the urban project was designed to restore the site scale and its habitability, through a series of seventeen \”Urban Terraces\”. The new buildings offer an architecture that is both monumental, in response to the scale of the site and which expresses the domestic nature of the programs. By his design, details and the choice of the materials, the project provides opportunities for the quality of living and the sustainability of the buildings. Even if the planned allocation for the Terrace 9 is divided into several programs, the whole ensures a single coherent expression. Our goal was to work accurately for functional quality and comfort of the housing program distributed between the three towers and the base. Accommodations are of varied types, ranging from studios to T5, in accession or in social housing. The facades are exposed respectively to the four cardinal points, they are all provided with numerous openings that extend the inside of housings to cascades of terraces, or to small hollowed loggias, which are interposed in the design of the frame.

Novell Ikebana in Neemrana, India by Design Forum International

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Design Forum International 

Novell Ikebana was planned as a housing development that would cater to the economic and mid-premium segment. It is located in the outskirts of NCR, right off NH8, near the Japanese industrial zone in Neemrana. It was conceived as a utilitarian and functionality-driven housing scheme that will set new benchmarks in housing design in the rapidly developing B-towns in North India. Yet, within the design, there are provisions, avenues, methods and expressions that allow for lifestyle and design to be incorporated artistically and tastefully.

Freight Residences in Denver, Colorado by Dynia Architects

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Article source: Dynia Architects 

Housing development in Denver is booming, especially in the newly revitalized River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver.  Unlike the majority of apartment buildings in the area, Dynia Architects’ Freight Residences rejects the typical models of development.  The building has a sense of intimacy and privacy, reduces the homogony of multifamily development, and targets the underserved urban family market.

Ilot de l’Octroi in Rennes, France by MVRDV

Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV 

Rennes dates back to the 18th century and is organised around two main squares, the place de la Marie and the place du Parlement. In the centre, old and new coexist together with Gallo-Roman remains, Louis Arretche’s futuristic Le Mabilais, Georges Maillols’s Les Horizons and more recently, the residential Cap Mail by Jean Nouvel. This Métropole is among the most attractive areas to live in France and its diversity of heritage and growth led to a shift in emphasis from the centre to the city’s outer areas connected by the pedestrianised Mail François Mitterrand. This move from a rural to urban context has meant denser developments occurring at the edges, to prevent encroachment onto the countryside. The growth in population and industry has called for measures to cope with future change, most notably for more housing and efficient transport routes. MVRDV, ALL and Giboire respond to this need for more sustainable housing communities and will contribute to the expansion of the centre by breathing new life and refocusing communities along the rivers.

12 Degrees in Ontario, Canada by CORE Architects Inc.

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: CORE Architects Inc.

12 degrees was designed as an urban infill project, fitting into the context of a mixed use residential area where the city block has buildings that include both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design.

Given the artistic nature of the city block, the design became a playful exercise in massing and an anchor to the south-west corner of the block.  The design can be read as analogous to the stacking of toy blocks, with one of the blocks skewed at 12 degrees from the others.
