Entrepot Macdonald in Paris, France by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Macdonald had been a gigantic distribution center since the 1970s, located at Macdonald Street in Paris. OMA was the master planner of the project and their proposal was rather distinctive. They preserved the old two-storied building (which extends as long as 500m), and asked 5 other architects to work on newly added programs. We were responsible for the western part of the building, and designed facilities for a junior and senior high schools, and local sports center.

In this house with bioclimatic elements in Kantou, Cyprus, the building program was structured in such a way that it is fully operational, while the aim of the full exploitation of the environmental conditions in order to save energy and achieve thermal comfort for users was achieved. All the above, resulted its ranking in energy class “A”. The main idea, which determined the final morphological outcome, is characterized by the parallel synthesis of 3 monolithic volumes. Morphologically, the design combines some more “traditional” typologies and materials with other modern minimalist trends. In this design context, the “monolithic” volumes, are coated with different materials, from a neutral white color to stone and wood panels.

Collector’s Oasis in Lausanne, Switzerland by Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

 
July 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

The task was to transform the ground floor of a 70’s office building, used as a kindergarten, into a clean and contemporary house for a collector.

Some 16 tons of concrete were cut away, to enlarge the windows overlooking the two level garden. Remaining were three concrete pillars, which were integrated in the floor plan of the apartment using them for the fireplace, the closet and the TV wall… creating so an open but organized and structured space.
