This building was put up at the edge of the town of Blagnac on a road which has been transformed since the tramway was built.

The balconies present on all the facades shift along from one floor to the next, so that everyone can enjoy the sky on every floor. Most of the apartments face out on two fronts and enjoy clear views over Toulouse.

The house sit on a narrow and long site, while facing a vacant lot too tiny to build the building beyond the road on the front east side, and facing a pedestrian path on the back west side.

On the south long side, buildings like apartments might be built and might cause the lack of the privacy and the natural light of the house in the future, in spite of the good condition the metered parking offers now.

Article source: SHJWORKS Architectural

This project addresses the theme of unique variation and belonging to a community. A community which is both imaginary and definite.Imaginary because each of the fourteen structures creates the illusion of a circle. And definite because the opening of each structure is oriented towards the same physical point.

The main purpose of the park is to allow tourists to view the largest dam across the Yellow River. People can also swim in a lake made by enlarging the original river course (river water now exits through a new course north of the park). The teahouse is located between the lake (west of which looms the dam) and a small hill of about 15 meters high. Behind the hill lie other attractions of the park.

The pavilion, made entirely of timber, has been given the name “Gjennomsikten” (“to see through”) due to its transparent character. The varying dimensions of the materials and the viewers position creates varying degrees of transparency and experience of mass. Standing 5 meters tall with the viewing platform giving an overview of the river: allowing one to see both up towards Skien and down towards Porsgrunn. Inside there is a smaller interior space offering a view of the river drifting past and the public beach across the once polluted Porsgrunn’s-river.
