Article source: Philippe GAZEAU Architecte

The BH2 programme is located at the north-east end of the ZAC mixed development zone, in the “Bois Habité” area. It is bounded by the Rue Claude Bernard to the east, and by the Boulevard de Cleunay to the north.

The immediate vicinity:

To the south of the programme there is a recent housing estate made up of small collective housing units of between R+1 and R+3. There is a difference of about one metre between the levels of the existing housing estate and the land.

To the west of the land, the existing sports ground is being kept, and included in the public parkland bordering the operation, and linked to it by footpaths.

Between the Lines – 25 cradles Nursery in Paris, France by COMPLEET | Delbarre & Cabrera Associées

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: COMPLEET | Delbarre & Cabrera Associées

How to synthesize a contextual, functional and aesthetic work through an architecture ?

The confidential characteristic of the Passage des Tourelles in the XXth arrondissement of Paris led us to imagine an opened equipment of proximity, a “breathing area” at the heart of a dense urban tissue.

The very particular presence of this nursery is expressed by a voluntarily marked architectural bias. An image shaped by the meeting of two entities where typologies, materials and asserted colours produce a reading which is simple, plural and sequential at the same time.

Out in front of the Maison des Hommes et des Techniques, this basketball tree offers a new type of sports equipment that can be used by just about anybody! Upon first glance, it’s clear how different people can play simultaneously. Basketball hoops branch out of different parts of a tree at varying heights allowing for multiple teams of different ages to play.

Medical care center for disabled people in Limay, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

Our project engages in an equilibrium (and disequilibrium) between the full and the empty, in other words between interior and exterior spaces, approaching both as materials.

There are six internal courtyards situated within the four unit complex: two large communal gardens of 350m², with four others interior to each unit, which light the way of the paths toward the rooms. The large open garden, accessible to all, is located in the eastern part of the grounds.

Roger Vivier in Paris, France by Marion | Compleet

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Marion | Compleet

The purpose was to reconnect with the identity of Roger Vivier’s house in order to accompany the renewal of the brand that created, among other things, the stiletto heel in 1954.

The work was led in close relationship with Inès de la Fressange, director of the brand and Bruno Frisoni, artistic director. We aimed to give each room the prestige of Roger Vivier’s history and a contemporary design vision. Based on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré Street, the store spreads on 3 levels in a sweet and luminous atmosphere. Outside, the screen shop-window made of “priva light” let the ground floor appear through the frames of various windows.
