The headquarter of the main association of the Austrian Social Insurance Fund is located in the third district, at Erdbergstrasse. The Wittgensteinhaus, the Rochusmarkt and the Grete Jostpark are important cultural buildings and urban areas arranged during site construction in 70s. In this high-quality context, we carefully place a spatial composition of the landscape park and building cubature. The vertical slice is proportionally supplemented by a horizontal slab and integrated the existing landscape park spatially and functionally. The inviting ground floor zone reaches the users and visitors over the extensive open space with shade-spreading trees or over the entrance along the Kundmanngasse. The naturally exposed hall provides a clear orientation and access to the areas.

Investement in Public projets meets more and more difficulties :
the proportion between the needs in relation to communities’ necessarily means raises questions about “how” and «how much», the “quality” and the “quantity”.
Nevertheless, can we now be satisfied with a proposal that would only be “functional” and “quantitative” without considering that responsibility we have in the City, and which influences for many years the daily life of thousands of people?
On the scale of time and space of an area, the calculation is exponential and the stakes are major issues .

This project is a store renovation for the furniture brand “Lost and Found” located in Guozijian Street, a historic district in Beijing. As nowadays, more and more people tends to live alone, the concept of a traditional family gradually disintegrated, and the city’s public space is becoming another “home” for people. Under such contexts, the renovation intends to bring the sense of “home” into the store, and to introduce a new vision for the future commercial space that connects people with urban public space.

The lacking in parts in natural stone facade has been restored and the remedial measures of recent years dismantled and adapted to the Wilhelminian facade. The object associated 60s buildings have been replaced by a new building, as an archaic gabled house without roof overhangs.

Attracted by the large garden and the tranquil environment of this house located a few kilometres away from Brussels, the new owners wished to carry out works to make it brighter and to open it up on the outside.
As they were ambivalent about the aesthetics of the existing house, part of the project was also to redesign the architectural expression, outside as well as inside, while keeping the original spirit. One of the childhood friends of the new owner put him in contact with architect François Martens who asked his colleague Edouard Brunet to team up with him.

This original 1970’s home was transformed into a striking modernist home totally unexpected in the more conservative Caulfield area.
A combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall creates the first impressions of this property, a far cry from the original façade that was dominated by a tin shed and a driveway.
A pivot door opens to the welcome area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky. All the doors off the corridor sit flushed against the wall, hung with pivot hinges and negative detailing surrounds. The bespoke timber circular door handles has an irresistible tactile quality that adds warmth to the space.

Value in Keeping
The 70-years old house was inherited from Owner’s aunt, who bought the original structure to teach Tea Ceremony. A new living quarter was added later to complete this wooden single-story building. It had been left as storage for years and was too damaged, yet Owner chose to keep the old characters, despite cost & time, than to build a new. Inspired by his wish, the renovation began not just to restore but rather to create a space where the old section merges into the new in a harmonious way. The “Koumori-An” house offers the concept of “Value in Keeping” which no new house can imitate.

This small apartment (80 m²) was renovated for a very young couple, both passionate collectors, and their dog. Our concept was to invade the space by design! The existing context is that of a 150 year old Haussmanian apartment with a rigid layout (defined structurally) which we intended to disrupt so that ultimately its inner qualities are revealed. Programmatic clusters respond to specific client needs, creating a landscape inside the apartment and modify the perception of this very classical Parisian layout.
