Situated on the front of the coast line, the hotel is surrounded by elite private villas and cliffs covered in Pine trees.

The federation of municipalities of the county of Najacis rapidly expanding. Its new needs in terms of infrastructures required the expansion of its waste treatment centre.
To meet their needs, we have developed a project composed of two different parts. The first one aims at expanding and upgrading the waste treatment centre with the creation of a one-way, the installation of anti-fall devices and the materialization of the pedestrian zone.

Climate-responsiveness in architecture is typically conceived as a technical function enabled by myriad mechanical and electronic sensing, actuating and regulating devices. In contrast to this superimposition of high-tech equipment on otherwise inert material, nature suggests a fundamentally different, no-tech strategy: In various biological systems the responsive capacity is quite literally ingrained in the material itself.

Located in the peninsula of Quiberon, the project of 4 units set up the conditions for a variable seasonal co-habitation with the proposal of two homes and two adjoining studios to rent one or more entities for one familiy or more.
This proposition generates a square of 16m x 16m, a small urbanity to take advantage of private or shared outdoor spaces to stay connected while ensuring their privacy.

In the town centre, close to the Place d’Armes, the town of Gournay-en-Bray has just completed a cultural centre which houses a multimedia library and cultural activities. This new centre is built on the site formerly occupied by the Damau factory.
The “Workshop” (a reference to the old Damau factory workshops) meets two major challenges: building a contemporary structure at the back of the plot by redefining the relationship with its natural environment (gardens, alleys, neighbouring stone walls) and surrounding structures (noble styles, traditional shelters, buildings with character) ensuring the new structure is readable in relation to existing buildings by framing the views from the main and secondary entrances.

“PRIVATE HOUSE” is a large family home situated in Beauvallon, in the Gulf of St. Tropez on the French Cote d’Azur. Stylistically the modern concrete, glass and steel construction is the first of its kind in the area, marking a new generation of design in a region rich with tradition. Bumper Investments, the developers, envisioned an aesthetic and sensorial link between the edifice and the surrounding nature and garden. Corresponding to the natural topographical setting, the maximum height of the elevation reaches just above the treetops, impressing on the inhabitant ideals of being at one with the surrounding wildlife.

Crystal Cloud of Knowledge
The future society will be a society of knowledge. However this knowledge can hardly be split into clearly defined fields.
Innovations develop within interspaces, within indistinctness, within the overlapping and hybridising. Questions regarding the future will be decided within transitional fields situated between technology, biology and ethics that are the central themes of the Musée des Confluences.

In scale with the neighbourhood, our proposal fits in with a general policy of creating closed blocks with buildings running continuously alongside the roads and featuring huge private central areas. The guidelines and recommendations thus fixed are clearly consistent with the idea of creating streets and lead to the conception of buildings which fit in with this project. This kind of urban development makes it possible to phase out the building work and the demolition work, both characteristic of this sort of project, in a coherent fashion.
