Altitude 240 in Lyon, France by Cambiums

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Article source: Cambiums 

This apartment in a late-60s block had hardly changed since it was built, and needed refurbishment before welcoming its new occupants. The prospective owners were instantly won over by its superb view over Lyon where the Saône flows into the Rhône.

Shopping centre Part-Dieu in Lyon, France by MVRDV

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV 

Today Gérard Collomb, the Mayor of Lyon, officially announced MVRDV’s transformation of Lyon’s large Part-Dieu shopping centre, the centre piece in a major renovation which includes the surrounding district. The scheme looks to redefine the area’s public space by creating terraces and gardens that step up into the retail complex. The new complex keeps the original identity of the Part-Dieu shopping centre through the re-use and revitalisation of its iconic yet run-down façade, which will ‘evaporate’ as it reaches the new glazed extensions that open up onto the street.

55 HOUSING UNITS in LYON, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

“Single-level homes”, la Duchère

The operation resulted from a competition (“Archi’nova, comment habiterez-vous demain?” – Archi’nova, living in tomorrow’s world) launched by the Alliade group. The programs are built independently on the plot and share a central garden. The adopted morphology is diversified, urban in nature and the apartments of considerable quality: wet rooms are naturally lit and conservatories allow outdoor spaces to be incorporated during the summer months. A new typology is proposed: that of “single-level homes” in which a floor level corresponds to a single apartment. Taking up little floor area, they provide the vertical qualities of a detached house: four open faces, an outdoor space and considerable partitioning freedom as well as condominium-owned shared services.

The extension of the Perrache-Confluence substation in Lyon, France by rue royale architectes

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Anne Rolland

A disappearing act

It is rare that architects summon up the notion of disappearing when designing their projects. The very essence of architecture is the exact opposite. It is there to be seen, displayed, to make an impression. Sometimes, a site dictates the need to adopt a strategy where things are buried or hidden. This programme, at the heart of the Confluence district in Lyon, was intended to renovate and extend an electrical substation, which led the architects to imagine ways of making the object disappear. The project took up the challenge of producing something that would actually fade from memory and vanish over time.

Block 32, La Duchère, Lyon in France by Tectoniques

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: Tectoniques

Block 32 occupies a strategic position in the vast programme to renovate the Duchère neighbourhood, in Lyon. The OPAC du Rhône housing association has produced a building which incorporates 33 social rental housing units, 1,500m2 of office space dedicated to health-related activities, and has retail space throughout the ground floor. Its central location, at the crossroads between the new Abbé Pierre square and the east / west boulevard, means it is highly visible and its proximity to the athletics hall imposes the need for a resoundingly urban attitude.
