The French International School of Beijing in China by Jacques Ferrier Architecture with Sensual City Studio

 
December 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jacques Ferrier Architecture 

The French School of Beijing, designed by Jacques Ferrier Architecture and Sensual City Studio, has been imagined as a built landscape. It is being developed on a site in the “Orchard” neighbourhood, which takes its name from the old orchards which, until recently, were a defining feature of this stretch of land alongside the road to the airport. Since then, the development of high-end residential blocks and international schools has introduced a new urban character with collections of low rise buildings alongside generous green spaces.

Article source: m3architecture 

The Bathersby Boarding Village is akin to a castle in the centre of a city (the school). It is a place where every boy can feel like “the King of the Castle”.

Fort-like boarding houses have a long tradition in English schools. They offer appropriate frameworks for safety, security and community building.

Silence as a language – NSN Church in Leiria, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

 
December 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

The church is located in the center of a crowded village. The intervention is based on a building previously constructed, where the interior was unfinished. We started with the idea of “building the silence”. In a world full of noise, the church represents a break, a moment of rest, peace and meditation. The strong spiritual character is present but doesn’t intimidate, it gives a sense of protection. The selection of materials, the way of moulding both natural and artificial light and the absence of images had the purpose of achieving harmony, a primarily condition in order to assure silence.

When dealing with the refurbishment of this old carpenter’s workshop placed at Barcelona’s Poble Sec neighbourhood, the main goal was to set up this space for inhabitation while the main constructive components were mantained. They gave charm and singularity to the space.

Headquarter SVA in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Article source: HOLODECK architects

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.

BOR1 – School Complex in Bordeaux, France by JOLY&LOIRET

 
December 20th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: JOLY&LOIRET 

One school per floor, one playground per level: outside spaces accessed directly from their relative interior spaces; 3 ‘ground’-floors. A metaphor for the world, nature, ecosystems; the sky, the forest, the earth.

The creche occupies the ‘climatic’ layer: façades reflecting the sky, clouds and the ‘protective’ tree canopy.
