Vitrolles Media Library in France by Jean-Pierre Lott

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: Metropolis Communication

The architect Jean-Pierre Lott has just delivered the new media library of Vitrolles. Located in the heart of the district of Les Pins, it symbolizes the renewal of the town center.

Vitrolles, like many cities on the periphery of great metropolises, grew too quickly. A victim of the urbanization of the 1960s, it went from the status of little Provençal village with about a thousand inhabitants, to a bedroom community comprised of soulless apartment buildings.

Shop and Exhibition Space in Marseille, France by Atelier M3a Architectes

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: Atelier M3a Architectes

Time had taken its toll on the place. We proceeded like archeologists and we removed layer after layer until we found the spirit of the original building, a brick tiled floor and stone and brick walls that must have been more than 150 years old.

These old materials serve as a reminder of what the place used to be. We wanted to preserve them as soon as we discovered them.

Modern Music Centre in Évreux, France by Hérault Arnod architectes

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This Contemporary Music Centre (SMAC) is a musical complex consisting of two auditoriums of very different kinds and recording studios, linked by a public space called the deck, running from one side of the building to the other. It is designed on the principle that, instead of being mere consumers of entertainment, people can construct their own evening by moving from one place to the other.

S APARTMENT in NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE, FRANCE by Dwek Architectes

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Dwek Architectes 

Interior design is one of the disciplines that Olivier Dwek undertakes with a passion. His taste for the interaction of materials and unexpected, exclusive textures leads him to conduct all kinds of experiments with seasoned artisans. Working together, they engage in treatments of materials that generate sometimes unexpected results. For this Parisian apartment, the materials are combined and confronted following a rhythm that is metered down to the last detail. Nothing allows itself to be fully understood from the outset. Olivier Dwek likes to cover his tracks. Brushed aluminium, which boldly dominates the composition of the reception room, offers moiré reflections that could be mistaken with the grey velvet. The sense of a somewhat futuristic sophistication which he elicits is nuanced by touches of American walnut and natural foalskin introduced in the selected items of furniture. The stone flooring, shaped by the years it has spent in a riverbed, in turn creates an unfathomable impression, a vibrancy that appeals and questions. In this highly architectural, urban environment, it was important to incorporate light and nature. According to Olivier Dwek, one of the major revolutions in contemporary architecture involves the thickness of window frames. Having now become imperceptible, they enable the exterior to reach right to the heart of this city home.

DOM in Tours, France by Edouard Brunet Architecte

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: Edouard Brunet Architecte 

Located in the city centre of Tours (France) the project consists in transforming the interiors of a typical post- World War II flat. The rather unpretentious and small flat has been revamped in order to maximise the sensation of space and give it more soul.

Context:

The flat’s surface equals 65 m2 and the external structure has been kept untouched. The existing building was built with basic materials, hence the medium quality. The heating / water and electricity conduits are visible. Since it was built, the flat has not been redesigned or transformed: the flat is partitioned, as it is usually the case for flats from this period.

The Flow / CECU – Euroregional Center of Urban Cultures in Lille, France by atelier d’architecture King Kong

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: atelier d’architecture King Kong 

In its cultural development policy framework and renovation of the Moulins neighbourhood, the City of Lille started in 2009 the building of a new cultural equipement that could enable the development of Moulins’s existing Maison Folie, that lacked specific spaces to carry out all of its projects, and to create a Euroregional Center of Urban Cultures (The Flow – House of Hip-Hop), a structure made necessary by the importance of activities linked to that practice that had until then no place to unfold. The importance of this project justified its integration in a site close to the town center. The will to unite these two equipments in a same place presented numerous advantages for both structures, including the possibility to ensure de facto synergy, their objectives being common. The Maison Folie, that had already conquered its own public in five years of existence, was forced to refuse or postpone numerous projects (dance, theatre, plastic and visual arts) due to lack of space.

The Séqué in Bayonne, France by Gardera Patrice

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: Gardera Patrice

A small courtyard, a back entrance on the kitchen side, a hut, a dead tree, garden boots, smells, be in touch with nature, birdsong, animals, a vegetable garden, a shed for tools, a pergola, ivy along the walls, piles of wood, a tree under which to shelter, a forest, an under-growth, a river, an attic, a chicken coop, a bench, a pond, a well, a fountain, a path…

Living outside, space, air, light. How to live the countryside? How do you live in a forest? What are the ambiances? What are the specific characteristics of a habitat in the countryside?
