A new South gate for the Metropole du Grand Paris

The site “Le Coteau” is an exceptional location at the southern entrance of the metropolis. Overhanging the A6, Paris and its monuments, it benefits from metropolitan accessibility – A6, RER B, and in the near future, lines 14 and 15 of the Grand Paris Express – and is at the heart of important health and digital economy clusters.

School Campus De Vonk – De Pluim in Knokke-Heist, Belgium by NL Architects

Passiefschool

To accommodate the merger of two primary schools the city of Knokke-Heist has developed an ambitious project: a so-called Passiefschool. The building has to comply with the highest environmental standards which should lead to a maximal consumption of 15 kWh per square meter for heating and cooling. A number of measures have been taken, some technical and some architectonic, to reach this goal. So besides triple glass, heavy duty insulation and the ‘Canadian Well’ for instance, the building features a ‘Volcano’ for night ventilation and a multifunctional porch to block the direct rays of the sun.

For this building, Nicolli designed and installed the glass shell with purposely designed metal sun breakers inspired by the laser technology of the company. The double function of screening and porch of the sun breakers is achieved with only three types of beams (in aluminium) and one type of tilted risers (in steel), both with simple geometric shapes. The whole sun breaker system was conceived for maximum protection from sun rays in all seasons.

Reception room of the domain of biar in Montpellier, France by Brengues Le Pavec architectes

 
November 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Brengues Le Pavec architectes 

The binomial constitution is a recurrence in the foundation of an architecture firm. We might think it is almost obvious. The reason? A need for complicity? It seems that the union is strength. But the alchemy of an association is only possible if there is a same sensitivity and architectural ideology. The association is always a compromise and conciliation history. When it works, a look at four eyes focused on the projects is available to customers. Point significant that some perceive easily. For their part, they did not ask. No commercial strategy, no impact study, or marketing project.

Villa Lumi in Nummela, Finland by avanto architects

 
November 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: avanto architects

Villa Lumi (lumi = snow) is bordered from three sides by streets. The incoherent suburban environment doesn’t provide any interesting views or starting points for the architecture. This is why the building turns around a courtyard. The noise of traffic is blocked with a glazed pool wing. Terrace courtyard, opening towards the evening sun from the west, is a place of several activities for the family living in the villa.
