As a new generation oriented establishment Sport in Street aims to open 200 new stores in 2014-2015. Sport in Street will be a multibrand name store with clothing, shoes and accessories lines from a variety of brands.

Paul Bert Léon Blum Boa Canteen in Lille-Lomme, France by D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

 
September 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

A unifying and fun building:

The urban challenge was to create a frame edge structuring this corner plot whose boundaries are based on low hosted terraced buildings, at the Marx Dormoy and Léon Blum streets. At the corner, the school restaurant’s parapet ascends gently, creating a bow that hides the restaurant’s technical equipment (centralair handlingand heat pump) while freeing the ground floor. The architectural treatment is contextual in its urban form and its materiality; the use of the brick, which dominates the landscape, has received a contemporary and qualitative review showcasing the polychrome emblematic brick bondingof the regional architecture .The layout of the masonry, with an almost random pattern, evokes the snake skin and activates the imaginary potential, architecture and young children dream-like: in a world where you have to respect the rules of the urban game, the building delivers a message of imagination, and seems, with its “snake skin” and “scale-like windows” to have the power to move.

Located in Cordoda’s downtown area, the second prize winning design for the Veracruz Architects Association’s new headquarters takes advantage of the existing topography. Designed by TEAM730, one of the main features of the project is to break the scheme of close institutional buildings to its immediate context, to become a built space that opens to the city, creating public space between the building and the urban grid.

CPS – Chiarano Primary School in Urban by C+S architects

 
September 23rd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: C+S architects

As architects and scholars, we recognize a political role in the urban realm for these small public spaces, where design is not aimed to produce objects standing independently, such as it happened with the cathedrals of consumerism (the shopping malls) or the cathedrals of culture (museums) which, despite their most private ownership, are considered the new public arenas of the society.

Redline (Construction of 59 housing units) in La Seyne-sur-Mer, France by Pietri Architectes

 
September 23rd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Pietri Architectes

The obsession to always be able to see the sea from where we live on the coast guides our pens from the first sketches and never fails to inspire another way of building. As such the Redline plot could not have tolerated a single, solid block, which would have obstructed the views of the surrounding housing and prevented half of the 59 housing units from having a view of the sea. Using this site survey as a starting point, and setting our sights on the north where the Bay of Toulon is curled up, a building that splits in two along a patio running from east to west was drawn.
