An ancient parking lot was divided into different apartments in the heart of Paris. To transform this raw surface into apartments, the project management wanted the structure to keep its industrial aspect.
The main challenge was to take advantage of the unique light source: South-oriented and situated in one of the apartment’s angles. The idea was to compact the night area to benefit from a higher flexibility in the living space. Peripheral wood furniture, serving as library, kitchen, desk and storage, was made to create space and visual continuity in the whole apartment. A mobile wall can occasionally be used to host friends.
The concrete beams and ceiling remain to keep the spirit of the place, while lessening the resonance thanks to a wooden slats-made false ceiling.

This interior design and refurbishment project takes place in a 1960’s housing block built out of finely finished armed concrete. Unchanged since its construction, the ancient apartment followed a relatively classical distribution with closed rooms yet with rather generous openings onto the surrounding green urban environment. The commission was to transform the space including a spacious living room and bedroom, a semi-open kitchen and a temporary bed-sit accommodation for guests. The structural elements as well as the mains network (supplies and evacuation) had to remain unchanged. We imagined the volume of the apartment as a free plan, opened up to a maximum in order to make the best of the space throughout the flat, which receives natural light on both sides.

“It is important for children to like the Maison de la Petite Enfance, for them to feel comfortable there, free yet safe. It has to be gentle and tender with them, participate in their education, help them find their marks and stimulate their imaginations” – The elected officials of Lieusaint
With the children’s well-being in mind this is how NOMADE Architectes designed and carried out the project.
The town of Lieusaint is a community located 35 kilometers to the southeast of Paris in the Seine et Marne département. Serviced by RER line D, it is part of the greater Sénart region.
After a competition for the project, NOMADE Architectes was commissioned to design and build this facility that it wanted to make a symbol of developmental for the region.
The project responded to Lieusaint’s desire to build a prominent facility for early childhood.

The campus of Université de Pau et du Pays de l’Adour (UPPA), bearing the hallmark of its architect André Grésy, is immersed in wooded grounds and has a strong relationship with its environment. In order to comply with the project developed by the university, to coordinate the different activities, and to upgrade – in terms of quantity and quality – the material means and real estate, the building of the Faculté de Droit, Economie et Gestion – Faculty of Law, Economics & Management – and of the Institut d’Administration des Entreprises – Institute of Business Administration – is reorganized, and an extension of the research centre is created.
The world of research is constantly changing. Therefore the project developed by Patrick Mauger is open-ended.

This traditional 1900s family home in suburban in the Paris, was fully renovated by Camille Hermand Architectures to house a young professional family with adolescent children. Prior to renovations, the house hadn’t undergone any work in several decades. Home to three generations of the same family, the house was loosely divided into three separate apartments each with their own kitchen, but no indoor bathroom.

Forward-thinking education requires contemporary concepts, including renovation of university infrastructure, which the French ministry of education has provided extensive funding to expand. An important goal of these reforms is to rethink outdated learning concepts. Technical progress, as well as new methods of communication between teaching institutes (students and teaching bodies) and the public, begin to question the traditional form of scientific libraries. The new Learning Centre “Innovation” is part of a series of similar institutes tasked with stepping up to the new challenges and preparing for the future.

The brief required a building with different office configurations and spaces capable of “being transformed” in a minimum timespan and effort.
Each configuration required the building to be able to create “atmospheres” and to “react” with different performances and characteristics, sometimes even contradictory ones. This for its image but also for its thermal, acoustic and even functional qualities.
