Gymnasium of the Louis de Cormontaigne High School in Metz, France by aEa, agence Engasser+associés

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Article source: v2com

Louis de Cormontaigne’s new gymnasium is located on the tip of the island between the Moselle River on one side and the canal on the other, a bow-shaped structure across from the day school and the motorway, the location’s major acoustic challenge. The building reproduces the orientation of the high school building and is perpendicular to the canal. It has also been designed according to the input of light with broad openings in Reglit glass on the north-by-northeast side to offer unified, ideal natural light. The south-by-southwest side has been designed as very opaque, like a mask—a large acoustic shield to counter the motorway noise. Work on the volumes and roofs, reproducing the shed-like appearance, also adds to the indoor staging and the design of the sports areas. Composed of a main all-purpose gym entirely clad in wood and a secondary gym for body-building, the new gym offers the best possible conditions for all sporting activities.

Atelier_142 in Paris 14e, France by Atelier Wilda architect

Sunday, April 29th, 2018

Article source: Atelier Wilda architect 

The project consists of the renovation of the old painter Pierre Lemaire’s studio (1920-2007), in order to create a minimalist loft in the heart of Paris. The entire existing interior design and the slab was demolished, only the load-bearing walls and the roof were preserved. It is originally a large volume in openspace in which the client wants to create a housing necessarily involving the partitioning of spaces. However, neither the client nor the architect are willing to sacrifice the spatial quality of the workshop. The project consists in revealing the entire volume by the demolition of the ceilings and household many holes in the internal partitions so that at any point of the housing can perceive the entire volume and thus retain the feeling of space. The light floods this beautiful volume with its large glass façade (10 linear meters) and generous roof windows. In order to amplify the sense of space the project presents little variation of color and materials. White walls highlight the wooden elements (beech) that soften and warm the light. As it is a small area, the custom furniture has been designed to the smallest detail in order to optimize all possible storage spaces while adapting perfectly to the uses. In response to the client who wanted an extra room despite the small area, the architect proposed a very bright cabin perched at the top of the volume with a bird’s eye view of the living room. It has a workspace with storage and a fold-away desk and a large bed for two people.

The House of Sports in Bezons, France by aEa, agence Engasser+associés

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Article source: v2com 

How to fit into a site at the heart of an overall restructuring project on a city-wide scale and design an extension on an already very crowded plot of land?

As one consistent entity, the Sports Centre pulls together a large number of elements from different briefs, i.e. an already-existing gymnasium, swimming pool and indoor tennis courts with the creation of a multi-purpose arena, a boxing hall, a bodybuilding hall, two dojos, a football pitch with stands, outdoor tennis courts and a clubhouse.

The new building fits in as a unique wing to the west of the existing L-shaped buildings, unifying the whole in a U configuration.

This creates an inner courtyard, a genuine place to breathe between buildings and a generator of light that unifies all access points.

‘Human Rights’ sports centre in Strasbourg, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés 

Strasbourg has had the status of European capital since 1948; it is the seat of the European Parliament and of the European Court of Human Rights. The city’s authorities quite naturally decided to a propose an educational offer designed to meet the expectations of the European and international civil servants working in the city by creating a European school. The school’s educational model, based on a multicultural approach, wide use of different languages, and emphasis on both children’s autonomy and parents’ involvement, covers a full school curriculum, from nursery school right through to the European baccalaureate. The school is located in the leafy neighbourhood of the Robertsau, near the European and international institutions. The school has nearly one thousand pupils and, to meet its requirements and those of local residents, the municipal authorities in Strasbourg decided to build an open sports centre. The programme called for the creation of a multi-sport hall and a multi-purpose hall capable of serving as a venue for events not involving sport.

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

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.
