Prado Bis in Paris, France by Florence GAUDIN, architect DPLG

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: Florence GAUDIN, architect DPLG

This transformation from basement to recording studio lie between high technicity and aesthetic research in a noble way. Located below a residential building, the first purpose was obviously the acoustic performance ( in terms of isolation and quality of acoustic demand). Besides the technical result, it was essential to invent an engaging visual atmosphere for these places of creation. Here, the decoration is not accessory, it characterize the space. The global morphology of the caissons being largely compelled, it had to find a way from a quasi-military geometry and provide some playful dimension. The “patchwork” proposal, a combination of “stains” expanding all over the walls the floor and the ceiling, weaken the links with the space, and like an anamorphosis, energize the place.The random geometry segmentation was also perfect for the treatment of the acoustic demand. The selection of materials and colors is inspired by Ethiopian music.

Lot o7 in Paris, France by ChartierDalix architectes + Brenac & Gonzalez & Associés

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

Article source: ChartierDalix architectes + Brenac & Gonzalez & Associés 

The building is part of the extremely dynamic renewal that is underway in the Clichy-Batignolles district, an area characterized in part by the convergence of railways leading to the Saint Lazare train station.

In this neighborhood, now well served by new public transportation, the predominance of mixed use programs and services (new courthouse, schools, cinemas, offices and apartment buildings) ensure this building on lot 7 will be surrounded by a quality environment.

Gaîté Montparnasse in Paris, France by MVRDV

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Article source: MVRDV 

Situated in close vicinity to Tour Montparnasse, the Vandamme mixed-use block, designed in the early 1970s by the French architect Pierre Dufau, was as one of the largest urban projects implemented in Paris at the time. As a design driven to prioritise automobile use, it appeared as a triangular urban island surrounded by the traffic loaded Rue Mouchotte, Avenue du Maine, Rue Vercingétorix and the rail tracks of Gare Montparnasse opposite the site. Dufau’s design is characterized by a clearly defined horizontal plinth, interrupted only by the verticality of the slender, 30-storey tower of the Hotel Pullman. Once a landmark of the era, over time the complex has failed to adapt to the changing needs of an urban society, resulting in an introverted and self-contained block which lacks urban connectivity, discourages pedestrian activity and neglects any sense of identity.

Théodore Gouvy Theatre in Freyming-Merlebach, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

Friday, April 6th, 2018

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

Freyming-Merlebach is a town with a substantial industrial past, in a part of Lorraine that developed in the 19th century, driven by the coalmining industry.

Since the closure of the mines in the 1990s, this part of north-eastern France has seen a sharp increase in unemployment, and culture is seen as one possibility for resolving the accompanying social and economic difficulties in the town, as has been the case in the neighbouring Ruhr region. The historic theatre in Freyming-Merlebach had deteriorated, and a number of cracks appeared as the result of disused underground tunnels. The old 500-seat auditorium needed to be replaced, and it had also become too small.
