20 social housing and 3 commercial spaces in Godefroy Cavaignac, Paris by H2o Architectes

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: H2o Architectes

The project of the rue Godefroy Cavaignac in Paris consisted in the rehabilitation of a building which did not meet hygiene and security standards into new social housing.
The agency’s aim was to renew the image of the building in the street while responding to the requirements of the «patrimoine habitat environnement» certification. The project is largely based on the building extension, contemporary reinvention of the bow-window, inserted in the prolongation of the unfinished 19th century façade.

The alternation of voids and solids as well as the diagonal cutting of the volumes break the visual monotony of the alignment of the buildings in the street and offer new and interesting views onto the rue de Charonne.
Inside, the apartments benefit from new space and comfort including, for some of them, a small space for gardening, a loggia or balcony.

The courtyard is transformed into a planted patio which is made visible thanks to a transparent wall from the street. A page is turned, social life is reinvented.

Plein Soleil in Paris, France by rh+ architecture

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: rh+ architecture

Location in the site

The situation of the plot at number 16 rue Riquet is exceptional: largely visible from the corner of Avenue de Flandre, it is very close to the Bassin de la Villette and has a length of 36 meters of frontage facing south with a depth varying from 18 to 22 meters. The building at the corner of Avenue de Flandre constructed at right angles as well as the small buildings with adjoining ground floors gives to the western corner of the plot a very valuable “faubourg” touch. On the other side of the same street, the large gable of number 14 allows the new building to be built upon. The whole of these characteristics bear a rich urban potential. Our project aims at making the most of it in the setting up and design of the new building

Pink Flamingo in Paris, France by Stephane Maupin

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Article source: Stephane Maupin 

The new building takes place on the east Side of Paris, a new area build over rail tracks. All the difficulty was to make a construction without any foundation. The project is installed above big concrete slabs overcoming trains in motion. So vertical columns are like pink flamingo’s legs. They are installed on 27 small spring boxes connecting the ground floor. Those boxes prevent all trains vibrations to students’ cells.

Magnum Gallery in PARIS, France by Birds Portchmouth Russum

Article source: Birds Portchmouth Russum

Three architectural moves are key in turning this former hotel ballroom into an integrated set of spaces. A portion of the ground floor concrete slab is cut away, a bridge spanned across it, and a cafe ‘trailer’ inserted into the front facade. The front of the trailer pushes through to the street, defining the entrance and helping to project the identity of the gallery.

Three Sustainable Apartment Blocks in Paris, France by Atelier Tarabusi

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Tarabusi

The project site is in Clichy-sous-Bois (a Parisian suburban area) inside the urban distribution plan of Dhuys and part of the overall urban renovation masterplan of Clichy-Montfermeil. The site presents great contrasts, tall council blocks built in the 60s on one side and the Bondy’s forest on the other. The project site being precisely on the limit between these two, the forest and the council blocks, draws the project to resolve the transition enhancing these components and strengthening their relationship in a positive way.
