Young worker housings and kindergarten in Paris, France by Chartier dalix architectes & Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Chartier dalix architectes 

This very compact project hosts several programs transforming the building into a real little machine for living. This density assumed by extremely rational plans (development and distribution studios) has two breaths, acting as the urban level as a point of view of applications. The first is horizontal, formed by an open 3rd floor, it gathers all common facilities (library, gym, communal kitchen …) arranged freely on the tray lookout over the city. The second breath is a vertical fault that brings natural light in all circulations horizontal (and vertical). In this regard, we encourage the use of public spaces (including stairs) which are viewed as places for sharing nice and bright. On the urban point of view, this work is how to synchronize the building with a topographic changing context: the device, its coverage, the steepness of the area, the terrace of the art cinema and testing …. All these levels present in the Porte des Lilas are many references with which the new project dialog through its own system of “urban balconies” is playing new strata of the city.

Embedded within the boundaries of the ZAC

16 SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS in Charleville-Mézières, France by a/LTA architectes urbanistes

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: a/LTA architectes urbanistes

We work on a firmly contemporary, contextual and reactive architecture. Each of our architectural answers are heading towards an originality specific to the project, complying with the program and the project’s surroundings On every proposal, we specifically work on the context. We are particularly interested in closed, distant, historical and sociological background of the project. These datas «are nourishing» architecture. As the contexts in which we evolve are rarely homogeneous, our writing tends to be hybrid.

The Jetty – bridge to the Mont Saint-Michel in France by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Creating a new access to one of the most remarkable cultural monuments and landscapes in Europe is a rare challenge for the design of a causeway.

The estuary of the Couesnon River surprises by the immensity of the bay surrounding the Mont Saint-Michel, by the beauty of light and the colours of the natural elements. The changing sea level by tides rising up to 14 m,  creates a repeated event exposing the forces of nature and offers a variety of landscapes alternating between land reaching far out into the sea on low tide and the water filled bay with the Mont transformed into an island as only landmark on high tide. This radical change contributes to the magic of the site.
