Avenue Leclerc office building in Boulogne-Billancourt, France by Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Article source: Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

The project consists of the renovation of an office existing building of 10.544 m², the redesign of the facade taking into account the overall structure, the renovation of the technical premises, and the optimizing of office planning. The building requires a new architectural point of departure; the new project is justified in light of the evolution of conditions of usage as well as regards energy standards. The idea of total flexibility is pursued throughout: through the uniform grid patterning of the facade paneling into 1.35m modules corresponding to the 1.35m modules of the suspended ceilings, and through the electrical and technical “irrigation” of the offices by means of raised floors. The building’s new image will form both out of restraint regarding the economy of means and the taking into account of the client’s expressed wishes and needs. Our proposition highlights generosity of space, light, comfort, transparency and wellbeing. The problem of energy will be approached subtly, with the aim of upgrading the efficiency of the facades and facilities “to measure”, rather that simply applying current regulations brutally. The building will be wiped entirely clean of all superfluous elements.

Chemin des Carrières in Rosheim, France by REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Article source: REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

Chemin des Carrières, the Quarries’ Track, is a lace undulating in the landscape, an invitation to travel as our ambition behind the reconquest of the Rosheim-St Nabor railway in Alsace, France.

Ominous, sometimes hidden, the vestiges of the railway still mark the reading of the site. The desire to create a route to serve the quarries had to adapt to the undulating landscapes of the sub-Vosges hills and the very form of the tracing tells the history of the landscape and the men. The journey to discover forgotten landscapes or to take a different view on everyday landscapes is addressed to both local users and tourists. Like the old track that offered a dual function (industrial and passenger transport), the route has a double vocation where the functional must rub shoulders with the imaginary of travel.

Cultural Center of La Hague in France by PERIPHERIQUES MARIN+TROTTIN ARCHITECTES

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: PERIPHERIQUES MARIN+TROTTIN ARCHITECTES

Building a cultural center in Beaumont-Hague, in Cotentin, means to integrate an architectural project that takes benefits from the landscape qualities of this piece of peninsula. On the shore, sunken roads are planted of wooded hedges that protects from the wind, and becomes vegetal vaults to filter the light over time. These landscape elements are secular forms from the site culture but also inspiring spaces that can be employed for the design.

House R in Anglet, France by GARDERA-D Architecture

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: GARDERA-D Architecture

The House R is located at Anglet on an estate of 1000m². The relatively large dimensions of the plot (50x20m) give a horizontal lecture to the field which compose the start of the project. The North-South orientation, the sun path and the pre-existing houses around the site were also predominant data for the design of the project.

The house is set back from the street, clearing a parking space for three vehicles.

HOUSE FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER in Bretagne, France by studio razavi architecture

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: studio razavi architecture

The defining concept for this house, commissioned by a photographer as both his summer house and studio, was based on developed facade studies which define a simple and smooth building skin varied in height and punctured by openings.

Two volumes define the main living & work spaces, both converge to the North corner freeing up as much space as possible on this small lot and turning all window openings to face South and West. The main space is compressed at the entry and releases up towards the landscape, the fan shaped plan gradually provides more floor area, volume and light. The second volume is exclusively dedicated to the owner’s studio. All rooms and bathrooms are reduced to a bare minimum and provide maximum surface area to living and work spaces.

Monticello’s Villas in Corsica, France by BONA-LEMERCIER S.C.P.A

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: BONA-LEMERCIER S.C.P.A 

The project is located in Balagne (Corsica ), now a very popular tourist destination.   Buildings nearby compete in both size and amenities, aiming for the top of the market and in a neo-Provençal style that has become the standard for the region.

Occupying a large vacant field plot, a rarity in this area, set between sea and mountains, the two villas occupy only the steep and impracticable edge of the land, in contrast to the modern habit of building on the flattest and most even areas.

This full floor work space was designed for the oldest insurance company in France. A very specific brief had been put together by the client which required to design a “peaceful, see-through & fresh” space that would not only respond to contemporary work practices but also allow new, and at times unexpected, team interactions.

Marly House in France by Karawitz

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Article source: Karawitz 

To live happily, live openly

On a tree-lined street in Marly-le-Roi a small community very close to Paris where high fences traditionally isolate each house and its garden, there is a house which reaches out to its neighbors creating a feeling of urbanity previously lacking on these parts. Because urban policy does not allow one house to open up to another to achieve the openness effect, this house is moved forward its parcel to open widely onto the street. A perforated galvanized-steel fence allows the passers-by to look in at the garden, which actually runs under the house that seems to levitate on its plot.  It is also an invitation to enter: the access is made from this underground level beneath the actual house, where the firewood is stored and the car parked. The layout of the ground floor is characterized by the fluidity of its three spaces, which are organized around the central fireplace, which alone endures the entire heating of this passive house. The kitchen and an intimate living room are located on either side of the carved staircase of a single piece of prefabricated steel, while two steps higher a living room crossing opens onto a vast terrace with a cantilever onto the street. This house blurs the boundaries between private and public to the benefit of user-friendly rooms that also open onto the outside.
