Headquarters Of Métropole Rouen Normandie in France by Jacques Ferrier Architecture

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Jacques Ferrier Architecture

The headquarters of Métropole Rouen Normandie is a unique, memorable and fitting image on the banks of the Seine in Rouen.

What makes it so unique is how the new building fits in with the surrounding landscape of Rouen. The building’s dynamic profile contrasts with the omnipresence of horizontal designs found along the major port, while its silhouette echoes the renovated industrial buildings on the right bank. The oblique shapes are reminiscent of the silhouettes of cranes and other objects in the port and the bows of the passing ships.

Dr. Schär Offices in Burgstall, Italy by monovolume architecture + design

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Article source: monovolume architecture + design

The company of the Dr. Schär AG is located in the southern part of the commercial area of Burgstall. Because of the steady growth of the company also the space requirement increases and therefore the existing administration block has been extended. Due to the limited base area the building was conceived on three floors. The characteristic of the design of the new part of the building is the sophisticated, restrained and linear architecture. The glass facades create a new light and clear look of the building and also of the whole company. The sun protection is made of slanting glass falkes, it is aimed at a kind of double façade.

The visible Attica panels of the ceiling are covered with white tiles, the flat roofs are designed as green roofs.

Casa Estudio Oficina in Lisbon, Portugal by José Castro Caldas

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Article source: José Castro Caldas

In order to continue exploring the interlude between Architecture and woodcraft – In which the Architect builds his own work, I arranged this 40 m2 studio. An opportunity to study / test within this space that would become my Home | Office and set up a laboratory of Architecture, where I could try out both space organization and execution solutions in detail. The hypothesis of resolving the adjustments, reconsidering badly anticipated decisions, imperfections as a carpenter does with his pieces, with the balance of who projected to solve the inherent deviations of the construction processes, here in a scale of Architecture, a kind of revivalism of the Arts and Crafts movement… To inhabit it, al- lows me to perceive its result.
