The Residence Irene Popard, to Clermont-Ferrand (France), counts 89 units including 29 in social accession and 60 social rental housings. The green corridor is the spine of the project which take its source between the buildings of the neighboring plot. The idea is that the various buildings meander, sneaks in a duality between distance and rapprochement with other buildings facing each other. Hence this zigzag movement.

ICF La Sablière owns the Fulton block, located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, on the banks of the Seine. The existing real estate complex known as “Fulton” was built in the 1950s by architect Daniel Michelin and is occupied by 133 dwellings. The site benefits from a very beautiful location, clear, in front of the seine, near the bridge of Bercy in the East and the museum of fashion and design at the West, a contemporary building realized by the architects Jakob + Macfarlane.

Within the C.H.U. of Clermont-Ferrand, the project suggests to gather together the various departments of the GRED in a single equipment, which assembles research and teaching spaces with a breeding ground of companies and common services. This concept lets imagine new opportunities for exchange tools and knowledges as well as fruitful synergies, encouraged by the shape and functionality of the new building.

Footbridge over the river Mogent in Montornès del Vallès, Spain by Alfa Polaris

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alfa Polaris

Montornès del Vallès is a municipality of 16,000 inhabitants in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. Montornès Centre is the main settlement, where most of the population —more than 12,000 inhabitants— live. However, a significant part of its residents —some 3,700— live in Montornès North, located just over a kilometre away. The two urban areas are on opposite sides of the River Mogent, which crosses the municipality from east to west. So far, there was only one bridge to cross the river. The main goal of the construction of this new footbridge was to provide a new pedestrian path to reduce the length of the displacements between these two main districts, and at the same time to offer a more friendly route for pedestrians and cyclists with a higher quality experience than the one that resulted from walking along the streets of the industrial estate that stretches between Montornès North and the old bridge over the river.

Sant Pere Sacarrera Footbridge in Catalonia, Spain by Alfa Polaris

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alfa Polaris

This footbridge over the new bypass of Sant Pere Sacarrera is part of an Y-shaped itinerary that links the town centre with two footpaths that give access to a forest area and were interrupted by the new road. The client not only wanted to provide pedestrians a pleasant user experience, but also carry out an attractive design that would improve the visual experience of the drivers, avoiding, however, luxurious solutions. The aim was to get a proposal with reduced whole life cost and environmental burdens. For this reason the design team proposed a Corten steel truss girder structure —very efficient from the structural point of view and whose rusted skin protects itself from further corrosion— for the deck; the use of LED lamps —with long life span and energy efficiency— for the street lighting over the footbridge; and polymeric timber —with almost no maintenance— for the decking over the structure.

Complexo Dom Pedro in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF Architects

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FGMF Architects 

Some years ago we were invited to design the Dom Pedro Complex project: two entire clubs, with headquarters, entrances and sports and leisure outdoor areas. The architecture should propose a unique identity for both clubs, but at the same time design independently flows organization, spaces, dimensions, relation with views and surroundings. Almost like two projects in one.

Beretta Showroom in Bucharest, Romania by Fabrica de arhitectură

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Fabrica de arhitectură

Beretta showroom was designed in a particular fashion that is a mixture of classic and industrial style. The Gallery, where premium hunting weapons are displayed, is designed  in a more classical way, only the furniture and the lightning being modern. However, the rest of the showroom has a more industrial style with black metal furniture and high contrasts. The reception is the element that synthesizes best the entire showroom: a massive wood and black marble desk with an industrial tridimensional metal structure. The white elm sculpture gives an organic feel to the entire space and accentuates the purpose of the showroom: selling hunting weapons.
