MEDIA LIBRARY ST PAUL in Ile de la Réunion, France by Peripheriques Architects

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Article source: Peripheriques Architects

The new media library structures “the gateway” of Saint-Paul city. Its location choice comes as an urban answer to the need of a strong identity in the landscape scale. This building has to become a cultural landmark, through information and training, as well as a visual one through its architecture. Located between sea and mountain, the building shape is a 34m side cube. The
idea of an urban landmark is enhanced by a strong aesthetic vocabulary of the volume related to the ”book” media: façades are structured by a stack of wavy lines reminiscent of the book pages pattern. Those “pages” are solar shading systems vibrating around the construction.

70 HOUSING UNITS in SAINT-DENIS, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

The project occupies the specific setting of a corner block that, in particular, provides it with an unobstructed view over urban Paris to the south as well as allowing it to complete the urban system established by Christian Devillers. There are two types of housing typologies: 16 individual townhouses and a building containing 54 collective housing units. The houses are laid out along green spaces and passageways that organize views over the rest of the block. The collective building has an “indented” form that allows each housing unit to profit from favorable views and generously proportioned exterior spaces.

Wedding and municipal room of Jacou in France by NBJ Architectes

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: NBJ Architectes

The city of Jacou’s wedding hall and municipal room project needed to be rethought at the crossroads of several axes and scales. The aim was to change the use of an existing building located in the town center. In order to fully integrate these new functions and to establish a strong link between the city hall and the marriage hall, a consistency of materiality has been set up in this project. The interventions on the ground and the facades have been proportionate to the respect of an harmonious work, focussing on the balance between heritage and contemporary creation. Thus, this new program is associated with a generous public space accessible to everyone.

SOCIAL HOUSING RESIDENCE in VAULX-EN-VELIN, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

This new social housing residence comprising 92 apartments aims to replace the “Mas du Taureau” hostel which is programmed to be demolished. It is located in an urban development zone within which no other works have yet begun. Intended to house former migrant workers, single-parent families and isolated individuals, the residence must accompany a new page of their life and develop the identity of the future neighborhood. To favor the appropriation of the setting by its inhabitants and its acceptance by the neighbors, the architecture moves away from the codes that generally define the image held by hostels and particular care is taken inside the building to organize the routes of the residents. Laid out as a right angle, the building offers a vast interior garden. The assembly of three small buildings is a pleasant neighborhood scale and allowed the lessor to rehouse former neighbors on the basis of affinities. A specific approach is proposed for each side of the building: the north glazed façade provides transparency between street and garden, placing emphasis on the movements on the access decks. Vertical elements forming fins optimize the provision of natural light and enliven the façade. The rhythmic continuity and the effect of slightly offset projecting fascias assure the link between the two façades giving onto the streets.

In 2009, on the initiative of Bishop Santier, the diocesan association of Créteil, supported by the Chantiers du Cardinal, opted for an ambitious project to expand the cathedral of Notre- Dame de Créteil. Conceived by Charles-Gustave Stoskopf, holder of the Prix de Rome, this architecture is typical of the 1970s when “the theology of blending-in” prevailed at the time. It is part of the contemporary heritage of the City of Créteil.
