A Stair by BEAR Progetti

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Article source: BEAR Progetti

The project responds to the customer requests who wanted a modern stair but at the same time asked for a safe passage between the floors of the house, so the system of ceiling mounting became the railing of the stairs thus fulfilling this dual task.

Paul Bert Léon Blum Boa Canteen in Lille-Lomme, France by D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

A unifying and fun building:

The urban challenge was to create a frame edge structuring this corner plot whose boundaries are based on low hosted terraced buildings, at the Marx Dormoy and Léon Blum streets. At the corner, the school restaurant’s parapet ascends gently, creating a bow that hides the restaurant’s technical equipment (centralair handlingand heat pump) while freeing the ground floor. The architectural treatment is contextual in its urban form and its materiality; the use of the brick, which dominates the landscape, has received a contemporary and qualitative review showcasing the polychrome emblematic brick bondingof the regional architecture .The layout of the masonry, with an almost random pattern, evokes the snake skin and activates the imaginary potential, architecture and young children dream-like: in a world where you have to respect the rules of the urban game, the building delivers a message of imagination, and seems, with its “snake skin” and “scale-like windows” to have the power to move.

Capco/ Bold Rocket Offices in Shoreditch, London by D+DS Architecture Office

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Article source: D+DS Architecture Office

The Capco and Bold Rocket offices in Shoreditch, London are located in a 150 year old 5 story steel and brick loft building. The architectural and cultural context of the neighborhood inspired the design concept: open loft space, industrial architecture with character, solid materials, visible joinery details. The custom furniture and walls use raw materials and expose the method of construction. Solid ash wood, timber pine either left natural or painted and black powder coated steel are the predominant materials. Walls reveal the method of construction, turning the typical construction inside out; wood studs are visible.
