The project is situated in the town of Fleurieux sur l’Arbresle, in the Rhône region of France, on a former wine-producing estate: The Domaine du Chêne. The undulating terrain, with its swathes of majestic trees, overlooks the Monts du Lyonnais hills and offers breathtaking views as well as an advantageous southern aspect.

AUDITORIUM OF BONDY & RADIO FRANCE CHORAL SINGING CONSERVATORY in Bondy, France by PARC ARCHITECTES

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Article source: PARC ARCHITECTES 

This auditorium is a new symbol in the suburban city of Bondy. Suburbs have built an empire of shopping malls, individual houses and parking lots. Located on the outskirts of Paris, Bondy has a loose and low-density urban fabric. The architecture of the building plays with the aesthetics of the hangar : a very simple square plan and an undulated metal skin. Unlike a traditional hangar, it opens to its context through a series of arches, letting in natural light and views. Inside, every space has a specific acoustics related to its function and its ambiance.

Extension of the helicopter group of civil security in Nimes Garons, France by NBJ architectes

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Article source: NBJ architectes

The restructuration and expansion of the helicopter base for civil security in Nimes Garons is a relatively complex project, under two major constraints. Firstly the fact that the work should be done without interrupting the activity of helicopter maintenance requiring extreme rigor in the areas of site partitioning and scheduling of work, then look at environmental issues classified BBC and Very High Energy Performance (TPHE). To this is added disparate entities built into the ground that need the introduction of a first coherent site.

Viravent, 112 flats in Cenon, France by Martin Duplantier Architectes

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: Martin Duplantier Architectes

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.

Nievre’s Deparmental Archives in France by architecture patrickmauger

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: architecture patrickmauger 

The rundown building housing Nièvre’s departmental archives has undergone rehabilitation and been provided with an extension. Two new buildings are positioned in parallel with the existing rehabilitated building.

The first, giving onto the street, is slightly stepped back to create an esplanade marking the public nature of this institution. The façades are formed from screen-printed glass panels with different gradations and levels of transparency that create reflections and random vibrations.

32 houses in Poitiers, France by Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Urban project

We wished to create a cluster of houses that is both a privacy area and a smoothed porous space, either from the outside or from the inside of the block.

A service road irrigates the hearth of the cluster. It is marked out on both sides by vegetated areas.

The project is a hybrid space, between a square and a garden.

Block 32, La Duchère, Lyon in France by Tectoniques

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: Tectoniques

Block 32 occupies a strategic position in the vast programme to renovate the Duchère neighbourhood, in Lyon. The OPAC du Rhône housing association has produced a building which incorporates 33 social rental housing units, 1,500m2 of office space dedicated to health-related activities, and has retail space throughout the ground floor. Its central location, at the crossroads between the new Abbé Pierre square and the east / west boulevard, means it is highly visible and its proximity to the athletics hall imposes the need for a resoundingly urban attitude.

D house in Brittany, France by Lode Architecture

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Lode Architecture

Beached on the estuary’s banks, where fresh waters meet rising tides, the D house cultivates contradictions. It can be either a shelter or a reception place, an intimate space or the place for partying. It is driven by opposite currents and its character varies depending on its occupants’ moods and natural cycles.

La maison-vague in Reims, France by Patrick Nadeau

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Patrick Nadeau

The project context is based on experimentation, and initiated by the public housing council of Reims (HLM – l’Effort Rémois) – in a subdivision of 63 lots with heavy economic constraints.

La Maison-vague uses vegetation for its architectural and environmental qualities, particularly in terms of thermal insulation. A fully vegetated shell protects the interior from summer heat and winter cold. The basic form is to encapsulate within a single mat of vegetation that undulates and floats above the ground, at sitting height (the rim surrounding the wooden shelf is kind of a big bench). The traditional relationship between house and garden is changed, disturbed even, the project encompasses both in the same construction.
