Dijon Concrete Housings in France by Ateliers O-S Architectes

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: Ateliers O-S Architectes

The project is a creation of 20 housing lots located in Dijon, including 14 flats and 6 townhouses. It consists of a succession of small buildings and privates homes with surrounding fences and open spaces looking into interior gardens.

This urban rhythm is strengthened by the recurrent use of stone. The general atmosphere of the street is strongly marked by the series of these mineral textures and the presence of abundant vegetation.

North Kellyville Square in Australia by Scott Carver

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: Scott Carver

“It is a hybrid community place, both an urban square and an activated main street. It is an engaging resolution of the walkable and the vehicular – of big convenience and bespoke localism,” says Rob Sanderson [Project and Design Leader]. “It inaugurates and celebrates the future urbanity of the place”.

“Ample and changing daylight makes the space alive within the static built form while the cantilevered awnings provide comfort and the setting for activation,” says Anupama Saha [Project Architect].

Yi She Mountain Inn in Beijing, China by DL Atelier

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: DL Atelier 

Henry David Thoreau said, “City life is millions of people being lonesome together.” Like all the mega-cities, it’s getting increasingly easier in Beijing to feel the loneliness in a vast crowd. People are mentally polarized between the obsession of exquisite urban chaos.

60 km away from Beijing lies Ming Dynasty Tombs, surrounding it are the serrated mountains and loosely aggregated villages where tourists can find our inn. Our client wanted to reshape it into a retreat for exhausted people and an emotional place to restore the personal connections between friends, families or even strangers.

Paraje Barrank in Mexico City, Mexico by anonimous

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: anonimous

The void of the patio organizes two volumes of five levels with 10 apartments measuring 138 m2 each, in the south of Mexico City.

The lattices and spatial organization of the adjoining constructions help to inspire a project that looks inwards.

With an area of 20 x 25 m, the apartments take advantage of the whole frontage to ensure that rooms are filled with light and air. A corridor links the volumes on the south and north sides, and the courtyard between them.

CAP in Paris, France by AAVP ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: AAVP ARCHITECTURE

The repurposing of a space in the historic center of Paris into two apartments gave architect Vincent Parreira’s office an opportunity to work on a small scale in an exceptional context.

Despite determinist formal and constructive features, this remarkably adaptable Haussmannian building has withstood repeated repurposing, though at the cost, it is true, of sometimes heavy interventions. The central framework of Haussmann’s Paris, the Opéra-Madeleine district has been transformed without changing its appearance: thus, number 17 Boulevard des Capucines is occupied with a vast program of the most up-to-date offices. Three addresses further down the boulevard, Vincent Parreira’s office just converted a 19th-century photography studio into apartments. If these premises have a far more modest surface area than the giant neighboring office building, the intervention is nevertheless significant. The clients, two siblings, own these two contiguous apartments, which share the same architecture and program, i.e., short-term rental properties. Access to these two prestigious apartments is via the former service staircase and the corridor leading to rooms formerly allocated to domestic personnel – yet another sign of the total transformation of uses and distributing architectural hierarchies so dear to the Second Empire bourgeoisie. Each apartment is a duplex, whose bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the lower level, while the reception area with its drawing room and kitchen are situated on the upper level, under the glass roof of what used to be a photographer’s studio. The upper level enjoys double exposure in both apartments. The views from these two vantage points reveal two quite different faces of the Parisian panorama. On the drawing room side, the view includes the gold and prestige of the Opéra Garnier, and the layout of the façades of the Grand Hôtel. From the kitchen side, the view opens to the chaotic landscape of Paris behind the scenes, its rooftops cluttered with all the required service elements – air conditioning systems, fire escapes, smoke dampers, etc. – of this functioning urban décor.
