LGA Architectural Partners (LGA) has created Eva’s Phoenix, a neighbourhood within a building. Eva’s offers safe and inclusive long-term shelter, education and skills training to marginalized youth aged 16-24 in transition from homelessness to independent living. Within two, heritage-designated warehouses leased from the City of Toronto, the architectural team created a central, interior community faced by ten clean-lined and contemporary townhouses that are awash in natural light from a ceiling of new skylights, whilst securely enclosed by the original brick walls. For up to one year, each of the 50 residents enjoys his or her own bedroom, within a “house” comprised of a communal living and kitchen space and two bathrooms with up to four others. These houses face onto an internal street – which serves as a gathering place for the Eva’s community. The layering of spaces builds comfort by giving the youth the choice to decide their own level of integration.

The City of Newark has long struggled to come back from the brink since losing its industrial base in the 1950s, which resulted in decreased city revenue, increased unemployment, deplorable housing conditions and ultimately fueled the 1967 riots. Since that time, the city has attempted several “comebacks” floating a host of broad-brush proposals for renewal many of which failed. Today cities are trying a different tact, finding seeds of hope and renewal in incremental rather than sweeping-change, embarking on small scaled, targeted projects led by architects capable of bringing to these ‘wicked problems’ fresh ideas and innovative approaches in the hope of jumpstarting communities in need.

The building is connected to a racetrack located in Barcelona, and is actively used as a training site for professional motor racing. Several companies involved in the industry have set up permanent offices in this building.
A flexible design was needed for the building so that it could accommodate several companies of varying sizes. For this reason, the building is divided between several 35 square meter subdivisions or sectors. Each is independent from the other, and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) utilities were installed below each sector, allowing for an unobstructed view, optimal energy efficiency, and minimized energy consumption.

1.The reuse of two former artisan sheds is the opportunity to score an anonymous urban environment and degraded by the power and strength of the architecture. In this project we used crude materials to make the surfaces very expressive.

Our aim was to create an open and liberated space for learning and communications by integrating the building and the hills around it.
The entire space spreads by forming terraces, which are connected with diagonal rooms for communication named “community voids”, which facilitate lively discussions among people who could take seats in the grand stairs and enjoy panoramic view of the nature.

The restructuring and extension to the Lognes site for the Ministry of the Interior aims to make it the main Grand Paris training center.
A “blue” gallery has been created that acts as the project’s backbone and provides the distribution needed for the restructured buildings and extensions. It permits a separation between visitor, trainee and personnel movements and ensures the readability of the centre, with administrative premises to the south and training premises to the north.

The training facilities of the Santiago Fire brigade are located in the suburban area of the Metropolitan Region, where the volunteer firefighters receive special training, as well as carrying out sports and other recreational activities.
The first variable facing the project was the climate, since the place has sparse vegetation and most training activities take place outdoors, where shade was an essential and scarce commodity
