The Saint-Ouen Docks site has an industrial port activity past, which decay had given way to industrial waste land, and has now become the ideal strategic location for an Eco-Neighbourhood. This labelled project is an example of an environment-driven project.

The main volume of the ‘Dock en Seine’ building comprises six stories. In order to meet the necessary environmental objectives, and to overcome constraints related to streamlining of the programmes, this building was tightly packed.

Article source: Juri Troy Architects

37 metres long is the single-family home that lies in the Rheintal of Vorarlberg in between the woods and water meadows. The slender and lengthy shape is a product of the property boundaries and makes for a straightforward exception among the neighbouring structures. The floor plan is organised as a sequence of spaces that allows for a practical arrangement of all the ancillary rooms and eventually leads to the generous and open living and working spaces.

RM House in Mar de Ajó, Argentina by Alric Galindez Arquitectos

 
May 26th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alric Galindez Arquitectos

The Pampa and the sea are known for being extensive and horizontal landscape whose limits are diluted in the horizon. The house stands in the diffuse border where both landscape interact. Understanding its physical location, the house tries to experiment with both landscapes consequently thinking of a common area with visuals towards both the sea and the Pampa´s landscape. Reinforcing the idea of focusing on both landscapes and considering the needed shelter towards the constant northern winds and southern storms, the interior spaces are organized responding to these conditions. The terrace on the sea side has no roof, in order to capture sunlight and the terrace on the country´s side has one in order to shelter from the sun and area´s dominant winds.

PSM in Brest, France by ENO ARCHITECTES

Article source: ENO ARCHITECTES

A unique place for sailors, icon building covered of architectural concrete skin from which arises precious red glass cubes. The existing building before work was abandoned for many years. At the heart of the port of Brest, it was opaque, thickset and tagged, shelter the homeless. Dockers former office, he was nevertheless a landmark building known to all Brestois. His new function: host associations dedicated to sailors. Reflection of what he receives, the project now has a strong identity linked to the world of the sea, with two main inputs (one for the day for associations and one for the night for the Seamen’s Club) and a discreet rear access for the region. The redevelopment of the immediate surroundings, originally a wild parking, also part of the project. The building before work was simply invisible. Few windows, dirty facades, negative image of a bygone era. The windows get larger, the facade protects itself with an insulation and exterior is adorned with a thin (5 cm) perforated concrete skin from which arise the inputs, real blocks of deep red glass, the floor soars skyward and attracts attention. The neutral building now gives way to a “significant” building which shows its identity with the world of the sea with a semi-figurative motif sail-shaped concrete cladding that makes a meaningful precious object. We made defects of the qualities. A new lighthouse for sailors on the port. The project is innovative, radical, with the use of two materials with opposite properties but highlighting with respect to each other. The fine facing opaque, dark, ultra-resistant and perforated highlights the airlock and the floor dressed in glass (VEC) colored red, shiny and transparent.

New Belgrade Fountain in Serbia by Studio Alfirevic

 
May 26th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Alfirevic

Fountain is located in front of the municipal building in New Belgrade (Serbia), designed in brutalism expression (Arch. Stojan Maksimovic and Branislav Jovin). The design of the fountain is an allegory of the time and the process of New Belgrade formation, as one of the most important modernist city parts of the former socialist Yugoslavia. In a contemporary way fountain evokes the appearance of the first collective housing buildings, which were erected in the area that was formed in the draining and filling wetlands process. Reduced visual expression, materialized in a minimalist manner, almost at the level of primordial symbols, is a reminiscence of extensive construction and architectural operations, which are conducted in order to form a new part of Belgrade, which was the capital of Yugoslavia.
