Designed to fully exploit this exceptional location, Ilot Queyries’ facades adapt to their opposite views towards the River Garonne and the historic city. The plan aims to reflect the qualities of Bordeaux World Heritage Site city centre whilst adding new qualities. Emblematic of the masterplan are facades with 45° angles which are used as a tool to generate maximum ventilation, daylight and sun. These angles have also opened the possibilities to create innovative housing. The larger building at the riverfront will have a distinct gold-splashed façade, whilst different shades of ceramic tiles, give a textured effect from top to bottom. The glass-fronted rooftop restaurant offers panoramic views of the historic city and river. At the heart of this collective dwellings is its large public courtyard with a garden of alder, birch and high grasses.

Based on a quest for a powerful identity and an effort to weave important links with the city, this new development stage of the Zac Paris Rive Gauche is designed to complete an urban repurposing initiated almost 20 years ago.
Building next to an urban void always poses exceptional challenges. The lot on the city block A11, free of adjacent buildings, faces urban arteries which also structure it, while also offering views of the railyard landscape, a river of rails and catenaries bestowing an obvious urban poetry upon the site, in which different strata of the city intermingle.

Hutchinson opened its 507 Fab House a year ago. This research and innovation center is located at the group’s historic factory in Chalette-sur-Loing, two hours south of Paris. The architecture office of Encore Heureux undertook a complete renovation of this building, whose metal framework was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel in 1869.
The 507 Fab House is a High-tech and digital place but Hutchinson wanted it to be simple, convivial, warm, modular and different. The building’s exterior is intentionally understated to blend into the industrial environment.

The architect’s statement
This little wooden building is seemingly more a line on a strech of water than an architectural structure.
Located on a lake, in the french region of the Vexin, this conference room becomes part of the majesty of this place of peace, harmony and calmness.
Its shape reminds of timeless vernacular architecture, using the familiar language of a fisherman’s house on slits. Just like the choice of the materials.

The project is located in front of the junction of three roads including avenue d’Eysines important axis, at the heart of a urban district with a very characteristic typology of Bordeaux.
The project involves the transformation of an old restaurant into a dental clinic. This old building made of stone was set back one floor above the street level. The goal of this renovation is to revalorize the existing and fill the void by creating a built front at the street level. This project thus becomes a signal, the beginning of an island designed by roads.

Some projects are more particular than others, so when my brother asked me to design his house, the personal stakes were great. As a young farmer his financial supports are limited, but he has regular opportunities to build and maintain buildings on the farm. In most cases, they are made of metal fabrics delivered in kit. This know-how combined with its working time flexibility allowed to conceive the project in self-construction.

COSEM Auber hosts multiple practices in this 1,600 sq. m. (17,222 sq. ft.) facility, including a radiology imaging center located in the basement. The general reception lounge on the first floor is also located deep inside the building. While the interiors’ contemporary style underscored the clean geometry of the space, an effective solution was needed to neutralize the confined nature of the areas and transform them into sustainable spaces for human occupancy.
