ECO-CITE LA GARENNE in FOURCHAMBAULT, France by Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Article source: Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

In a city split by rail lines, neighborhood transformation through an appreciated “eco-city” must take into account its unique scales and existing qualities :

– the smooth downtown connexion via a footbridge

– the proximity of “La Garenne” woods with their rich arboreal heritage

– an ancient and deeply-rooted gardening culture in urban areas ; and vast open spaces.

M Grund – Social Housing In Vienna, Austria By Nerma Linsberger Ztgmbh

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Article source: v2com

The building’s introverted structure is a response to its heterogeneous surroundings: the complex has clearly defined edges on the north, east and west sides, and opens up to the south, where it faces wide open spaces. Two courtyard blocks build an urban space sequence, creating a south-facing relationship. Cuts, openings and large windows structure the west, north and east sides, entering a dialogue with the surrounding urban space.

Paraje Barrank in Mexico City, Mexico by anonimous

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: anonimous

The void of the patio organizes two volumes of five levels with 10 apartments measuring 138 m2 each, in the south of Mexico City.

The lattices and spatial organization of the adjoining constructions help to inspire a project that looks inwards.

With an area of 20 x 25 m, the apartments take advantage of the whole frontage to ensure that rooms are filled with light and air. A corridor links the volumes on the south and north sides, and the courtyard between them.

Ostasilor 8 in Bucharest, Romania by TAG Architecture

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Article source: TAG Architecture

The building in Ostașilor 8 is located in a diffuse, traditional urban fabric of central Bucharest, in which the urban architectural, historical values and the natural environment are protected in their entirety, street texture and built environment alike.

The area has a high living standard and a scenic air and is located at the convergence of neighborhoods with diametrically opposite characters. On the one hand, the limits of the old city center and Cișmigiu Gardens (historically the oldest designed park in Bucharest) point towards a moderate, maybe nostalgic approach, on the other, the proximity of the new and controversial Uranus Boulevard, whose inception has caused a stir due to demolitions of old, derelict areas, pushes towards the exuberance inherent to any beginning.
