Courthouse Béziers in France by Ateliers 2/3/4/

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Ateliers 2/3/4/

Open on to the city by nature, more than any other, a public building is an urban component. It signifies, invites, brings the city alive. The court plays on the duality between the urban monumentality of a judicial institution and the serenity necessary to handle delicate cases that affect people’s lives. Between stacks of three layers of rock, as stone blocks in a quarry, extends a landscaped oasis that filters the light, tempers the atmosphere and links the areas accessible to the public. The voids qualify the solids: at each level, projections and patios locate between the blocks. The stepped masses encourage the light to enter, creating internal landscapes to protect the premises from any intrusive view. As such, security of the facades and confidentiality are provided with ease.

Contemporary house in Cannes, France by DRC Studio

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: DRC Studio

This contemporary home designed by Denis Bodino is modeled after a California-­‐style villa. Its pure and simple lines are highlighted by the glass and polished stainless steel, which contrast with rough-­‐hewn natural building materials such as stone, wood and Corten steel.

The property is perched above the city of Cannes, in an exclusive setting with a panoramic view over the surrounding area.

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architects

The design for the Strasbourg Palais de la Musique et des Congrès by Austrian architectural firm Dietrich | Untertrifaller and French firm Rey-Lucquet & Associés combines the two existing music halls from the 1970s and 80s with new buildings to create a harmonious ensemble with a distinctive architectural identity. The expansion and general renovation of the convention center involves the construction of a 3,000 m² multifunctional hall, a conference hall for 450 people, and a 520-seat auditorium, the expansion and conversion of two existing concert halls, plus a new rehearsal hall for the Strasbourg Philharmonic orchestra. In December 2016, the recently completed project was nominated for the European Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017.

Bon-Secours health and social care development in Paris, France by AZC

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: AZC

The collection of buildings that makes up Notre-Dame de Bon Secours is to be found at 68 Rue des Plantes, in southern Paris’ 14th arrondissement. Bordered to the south and the east respectively by Rue Giordano and Rue des Plantes, the site has an area of almost three hectares. The heritage of this site is a long history of building that began in 1875. The first wings of the hospital and the chapel were soon joined by new buildings in the same architectural style, following an orthogonal plan along two axes, alternating buildings and garden areas. In 1985, demolitions and new constructions broke the architectural coherence and upset the reading and use of the site. The recent transfer of the maternity unit to another hospital (Saint Joseph) provided the opportunity for the organisation to convert the Rue des Plantes site into a leading community healthcare centre, as well as to re-establish a harmonious and functional architectural ensemble. The transformation of the Notre-Dame de Bon Secours site reflects the evolution of healthcare; from the late 19th-century linear building, to the broad floors of modern medical centres. Following the demolition of the most problematic buildings on the site, including the maternity wing, a large building operation was planned in two phases so as to manage re-housing and building on an occupied site. Phase one, now being completed, comprised the construction of a new building to house a 98-bed residential care-home for the elderly and a 64-place crèche. It is built on the site of the demolished maternity wing, in the south-west corner of the plot, on the Rue Giordano Bruno side. The project also involves the renovation of the street-front building of the old nursing school, known as the ‘chateau’, to house a new children’s healthcare centre. The overall programme covers a total surface area of 14,000 sq m (GIA). Phase two, due for completion in 2017, will see the construction of a nursing home for disabled patients at the northern corner of the site by the Rue des Plantes.

Residence Saint-Ange in Seyssins, France by Studio Odile Decq

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Studio Odile Decq

Perched on the crest of a hill, the residence is a monolithic sculpture —one that turns its back on the rest of the compound, looking out to to the historic city of Grenoble in the valley and the jagged French Alps beyond. Up the slight slope lies a bosque-like park, studded with sculptures from the owner’s collection, and the rest of the Tour Saint- Ange estate, which includes a 17th-century farmhouse, expanded into a villa in the 20th century.

38 Housing units in Rue Bonnet, France by Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes 

The 38 social housing units at 10/12 rue Bonnet in the city of Clichy-la-Garenne completed for Efidis (social housing landlord) are located at the doorstep of Paris, along the périphérique beltway.

At the edge of the capital and its inner suburbs, they look towards both the Clichy-Batignolles district and the new high court designed by Renzo Piano, and the greater Paris area. Inside and out, they embody the metropolitan issue of eliminating borders. The architects seem to have set a roadmap to relay the dynamism that characterizes the urban development zone of Batignolles in a disparate environment. It is this double relationship with the city dictating the physiognomy of the building that seems to transcend the limits of the périphérique to connect two different urbanities towards a common future.
