Honoré de Balzac high school in Castelnau-le-Lez, France by NBJ architectes

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Article source: v2com 

The principal idea in the site of the high school Honoré de Balzac de Castelnau-le-Lez  was to reconquer space by a better distribution of constructions in order to create a scale of user-friendliness, as well in the buildings as in the outdoor areas. The first action was to reconsider the current landscape, to bring a functionality to external installations thus conveying true space qualities and to create a total logic of circulation within the site. The constitution of this new urbanity becomes the base of a shared and porous space, generator of exchanges comparable with the strategic constitution of a campus. The nature becomes the vector of a new contemporary urbanity organized around inter-connected buildings.

Urban Renovation in Lormont, France by LAN Architecture

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Article source:  LAN Architecture

The Génicart district, located near the centre of Lormont and adjacent to the town’s main urban and interurban network, consists primarily of collective and social housing. Comprising 10% of the  city’s municipal territory, it accommodates roughly 10,500 people and 50% of Lormont’s population. This ambitious urban and social renovation project is organized around four different residences, located on the South sector of the district: Saint-Hilaire (387 units), Leroy (114 units), La Boétie (105 units) and Villon (104 units). The project has established a residentialisation programme. The term “residentialisation” originated in the 2000s and follows the first phase of rehabilitation of housing estates operated from the 80s. Residentialization responds pragmatically to the constraints of collective housing for large populations set by the investors. In this programme, housing units are gradually distinguished from one another, and public space follows suit. Through the use of pathways and a more progressive hierarchy of public and private, the presence of unused collective space is reduced. The pitfall of residentialization lies in its premise. It is an impoverishment of shared spaces, a homogeneous privatization of ground against the very principle of large sets: the free plan. The risk is to strengthen the withdrawal, and return once again to the margins of neighborhoods. The project area Génicart attempts to reconcile the redefinition and the free plan. Taking advantage of every opportunity offered by the need to intervene on the buildings, the project follows an overall strategy of making urban blocks more comprehensive through architecture, whilst keeping the landscape open. This is achieved through gradually transforming public and private spaces such as green areas, sports facilities, and new pathways into an entirely pedestrian area.

M08 Rehabilitation of a Carthusian in Toulouse, France by BAST(Bureau Architectures Sans Titre)

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: BAST (Bureau Architectures Sans Titre)

A “Chartreuse” is a renovated while fundamentally changing its organization. The initial functions are reversed. The living areas are located on the first floor to enjoy the views and the sun terrace and the spaces at night find their place at the court. The entrance is directly upstairs through the terrace. Volumes added over time abruptly are coated wood stained black, seeking to make clear the body of old buildings in value. Accompanying this process, the private courtyard is widely planted to create a breath in this very mineral island and participate in the management of natural opposite.

Restructuring and extension of the Proudhon secondary school in Besançon, France by Tectoniques architects

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Article source: Tectoniques architects

Proudhon secondary school was built in 1971. It is located in the Palente district, to the north of Besançon. It is surrounded by the Pergaud sixth form secondary school and the Orchamps gymnasium. The original architecture is typical of the mass urbanisation of the 1960s and the policy of standardisation, two phenomena which forged the “ordinary” heritage of the 20th century.

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes

The architectural firm, Avenier Cornejo, has just completed a crèche for 66 children in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. The crèche is located in the new Fréquel Fontarabie district, where the public pathway meets the square. It is a unique building which adds to the identity of the neighbourhood. Being one of the first places that children discover outside their own family unit, a crèche needs to provide a reassuring atmosphere where children can grow and prosper. The crèche is there both to protect children and help them discover the world around them.

“The grotto formed a huge hall. Over its granite floor gently flowed the faithful stream. At such a distance from its source, its water was only the same temperature as the air, and we could drink it without difficulty.

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

Article source: Chevallier Architectes

Context
The building was originally an old wooden shed in very poor condition – a strong candidate for demolition.
The challenge was to find ways to develop and optimize the spaces within a volume that could not be modified due to planning by-laws.

BeyondtheWalls

On the last path before the earth falls away into these , a small country house is tucked into a nembankment. Introverted on the edge of the cliffs, it protects it self from the wind sand the ocean spray. Inside, piles of book sares tacked in every corner and recess.The rhythm of the day is marked by the turning of pages and punctuated by the coming sand going of the house cats.
