LE COIFFEUR in Marseille, France by Margaux Keller Design Studio + Bertrand Guillon architect

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: Margaux Keller Design Studio 

In addition to bouillabasse and aioli, the seaside city of Marseille is now home to a new gem – a cleverly designed hair salon called Le Coiffeur. Conceived for local stylist and salon owner Pascal Lancien by Fabrica alumnus Margaux Keller, a Marseille native herself, the elegant space puts an inviting new spin on the conventional format of a hair dressing studio.

BOUNCING BRIDGE in Paris, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea


With the growth of « World Cities » in the 1990’s, the contemporary notion of the Urban Gathering was born. Its essential characteristic is the creation of a specific urban sense of time through a scheduled series of varied ephemeral events. This « event urbanism » exists as part of the increasing competition between capital cities, seeking to attract and maintain highly mobile professional classes and to satisfy more stable populations with novel practices of urban space.

STUDENT HALL OF RESIDENCE + FAMILY HOMES in PARIS, France by Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Article source: Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Street, entrances, depth: the genesis of a coherent spatial arrangement

The project has chosen to link the high density imposed by the depth of the plots to the framework created by the buildings retained on the street. The system of entrances, creating a flow into the existing buildings as well as through to the full depth of the block, is the point of departure for spaces that stretch into the far reaches of the site, the first link in a chain extending to create this spatial arrangement.

THE ROMAIN ROLLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in EPINAY, France by Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Article source: Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

An Intervention Embedded in the Cityscape and the Landscape.

The project establishes a simple continuity with its surrounding context of urban renewal. Its construction completes a twofold environment whose variants are initiated on the site:

The Built Setting: At the north and east ends, the proposed extension—a volume on the second storey—is delicately articulated by a clear break with the existing structure. It is in synch with the align­ments initiated by the elementary school, and offers a noble facade towards the parkway which serves the institutions.

Herold – Social Housing100 in Paris, France by Jakob + Macfarlane

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Jakob + Macfarlane

In the context of the reconversion of the ancient site of the hospital Hérold, conceived by Philippe Madec in Paris 19th arrondissement, Jakob + MacFarlane establish/design three mineral forms standing free on a kind of slope triangular island planted with some trees. These three forms, grow like roots on portions of the territory that have been freed by the constraints of the site : protected trees, the ancient existing wall of the beltway, the size and prospect, the not buildable surfaces or the difference in height. Their shapes are at the same time the result of these constraints and a matrix structure generated by an irregular grid on the floor.

Invisible kitchen in Paris, France by i29 interior architects

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: i29 interior architects

As living spaces and kitchen islands merge together in most contemporary homes nowadays, i29 designed a kitchen that acts more as a piece of furniture instead of as a kitchen. Our aim was to develop a kitchen system that seems to disappear in space.

The design is reduced to it’s absolute minimum, having a top surface of only a couple of centimeters thickness with all water, cooking and electrical connections included. Large sliding wall panels conceal all kitchen appliances and storage space.

Black Box in Lyon, France by TECTONIQUES

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Article source: TECTONIQUES

The DI-VA house, whose name is a play on the owners’ names, occupies a previously empty space in the residential Croix-Rousse district of Lyon.

Given the narrowness of the frontage, and the fact that there is a building directly opposite, the architects decided to adopt a judo-type strategy. The house turns away from direct confrontation, and exploits chinks in the landscape in order to optimise the views and ambiances. Entirely prefabricated, it was constructed in less than a week. Its sudden appearance came as something of a surprise to the neighbours, whose reactions were mixed. But in spite of its uncompromising colour and form, the building does not express any aggressiveness. On the contrary, it takes its place quite harmoniously in the surrounding topology, with tranquillity and a considerable degree of discretion.

The school complex Buffon is the rehabilitation and extension of existing school equipment, dating from the seventies and combining nursery and elementary schools, respecting German label Passivhaus. The project redefined the new unit around a sweet and sensitive materiality favoring the use of wood and prefabrication. The project balances between opening towards the popular district around and Child Protection within the school. Spaces are requalified to offer a generous relationship outside.

In Toulouse, near the airport and the river Garonne.

A housing development that seeks to optimize the living conditions of each of its cells. The whole is broken down to prioritize the meeting with the domestic rather than insisting on the abstraction of the idea.
