Bibliothèque Alexis de Tocqueville is a public library for the metropolitan region Caen la Mer in Normandy, France. The 12,000 m2 multimedia library is located at the tip of the peninsula that extends out from the city of Caen to the English Channel. Its key position – between the city’s historic core and an area of Caen that is being developed – supports the city’s ambition for the library to become a new civic center. The library’s glass facade visually connects the adjacent park, pedestrian pathway and waterfront plaza to the interior and together with two large ground floor entrances at both sides of the building, enables a fluid interaction of the library with its surroundings. On the upper floors, the urban belvedere provides unobstructed views in all four directions.

Habitation has always had a very special relevancy in Vienna. Well known for it´s cooperative dwellings, this project shows a very different side of living in Austria´s capital city. The house itself – an art déco mansion built in 1931 consist of three separate apartments. The lowest raised ground floor apartment is owned by the clients since 2013. The flat was found in good but time-worn condition when the IFUB* got the comission for the conversion. Besides the details found in the flat itself, childhood memories and a strong personal connection of the client to the place and other conversions in the recent decades had to be considered in the design.

Thus the fundamental challenge of the project was to ensure that both the use and image were in constant symbiosis. For this and before generating a design scheme, architects initiate an investigation of the cultural aspects from the area of ​​habitat that have been established in rural dwellings of the place.
