Canopy Michelin Headquarters Reception Area in Clermont-Ferrand, France by ENCORE HEUREUX Architectes

Monday, January 9th, 2023

Article source: ENCORE HEUREUX Architectes

Michelin’s Canopy was implanted in the Carmes site of Clermont-Ferrand since the company’s inception in the late 19th century, and instituted as its headquarters in the 2000s. The project, delivered in 2021 and carried by the partnership between Encore Heureux Architectes, Construire and Base, aims to embody the image of the group in a welcoming, unique and cohesive space, all while inserting itself in an emblematic public square. The headquarters’ innovative new reception area symbolizes Michelin’s reinvention, conceived to face 21st century challenges head-on; a design and operation that were conceptualized in a circular economy perspective, mindful of environmental impact.

Hotel Reception on the Ridge in Shizuoka, Japan by Takashige Yamashita Office

Saturday, February 26th, 2022

Article source: Takashige Yamashita Office

Sitting on the hillside beside the street running towards Mountain Fuji from Gotemba, Shizuoka, the Reception annex greets visitors to hotel lodges spreading out on the wide landscape.

The area, called Takane, is part of a huge forest where a small stream is murmuring along with a very close and clear view of Mt. Fuji to the west. Despite its huge natural background, this site is still quite easy to access from the city center, located only 15-minute-drive away from the central area of Gotemba city and convenient to reach from the nearest highway interchange as well. The client has been planning to organize accommodation facilities in this area, and a main management annex was required to set up a welcome spot as an entrance to the entire project.

Yimeng Shanxiangju resort in Linyi, China by Greyspace architecture

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

Yimeng Shanxiangju resort is located in Cuijiayu, Yimeng Mountain Tourist Resort, Linyi City, Shandong Province, surrounded by typical mountainous geological feature. The site is a slope from northeast to southwest, and the current road on the north is the only way to enter. How to deal with the relationship between the building group and the natural slope under the main road becomes particularly important here.

The Architect hopes that the building volume will be perceived as small as possible to retain the physical experience brought by the initial state of the site. At the same time of conforming to the slope, the design team controls the way and rhythm of moving through the subtle treatment of different heights, aiming at eliminating the invasion of the building volumes.

The Comisura Dental Surgery arises from the reform of a business premises in the city of Elda (Alicante, Spain).  The project is centred on a well defined objective: that the architecture, along with the professional team, can generate positive experiences.  Our aim was for a sensory change for the patients visiting a dental surgery, creating a quiet, friendly and optimistic environment.

The design covers 185 metres square spread out on two floors.  The main floor, where the dentistry activities of the surgery are carried out, is taken up with the reception, waiting room, office, bathrooms, four dental surgeries, TAC room, sterilisation room and laboratory.  The first floor, with a more private character, is distributed  between the staff room, dressing room, private bathroom, machinery room and a large room for meetings and training.

Espaço S in Portugal by Qiarq . arquitectura+design

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Article source: Qiarq . arquitectura+design

Architecture is seeing birth and making life projects happen. And if so, this is undoubtedly an excellent example. An open space, ready to receive such important areas as physical rehabilitation, women’s health, baby’s health, family health, well-being and nutrition. These are some of the areas that combined with a simple and committed working spirit, direct and without prejudice make the image of this clinic.

The key concepts for the development of this clinic begin with neutrality and minimalism (technical floors, white walls and clean lines), combined with the warmth of the reception (woods and fabrics) and the workforce (ropes), without forgetting that we are an integral part of everything which is natural (stone and plants).

Sedka Novias in Petrer, Spain by Pablo Muñoz Payá Arquitectos

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020

Industrial areas are places that offer large spaces and easy access, characteristics that now seem to be impossible to find in more consolidated urban areas.   It is not surprising that  both retail traders and offices are setting up business in these areas, in an increasingly marked transition of industrial space towards the tertiary sector.

Spaces that can be generated by adapting old industrial buildings represent an inevitable chance for both owners and businesses, as for architects and designers.  An example of this is the project for Sedka Novias carried out by Pablo Muñoz Payá, the Alicante architect studio established in Petrer.

Casalunga Golf Resort in Castenaso, Italy by Antonioiascone & Partners

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

Article source: Antonioiascone & Partners

The CGR project was developed in response to an assignment entrusted directly to Antonio Iascone by proprietor Gianluca Vacchi, who needed to increase the floor space and extend the range of functions offered by the Castenaso Golf Club, which is sited just beyond the outskirts of Bologna.

The brief involved the construction of five new building units, a swimming pool, and an al-fresco bar to complete the existing facilities of the original clubhouse, which was located in a converted farmhouse known as the Casalunga.

The buildings provide space for a reception centre, clubhouse, a spacious and functional changing room with golf-bag storage, a fitness centre annexed to an open-air swimming pool and solarium, and an accommodation centre with eight rooms.

Médiathèque grand M in France by atelier d’architecture king kong

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

Article source: atelier d’architecture king kong

The new médiathèque and the esplanade unfolding before it are integral parts of a vast urban redevelopment project (ANRU project) currently implemented by the City of Toulouse. The multiple aspirations of this new multimedia library logically include the rehabilitation of unoccupied urban spaces and the creation of a strong, purposeful architectural symbol. The médiathèque stands in the Le Mirail suburb of the city, laid out between 1961 and 1971 by Georges Candilis and whose urban fabric today is largely fragmented. Additions down the years to Candilis’s original work of Modernist beauty have undermined the area’s structure and the role of this new public building was to reinforce the neighbourhood’s identity, along with other recently rehabilitated or completed constructions.

The plot designated for the médiathèque lies on Avenue de la Reynerie and was originally occupied by a low-lying building, now demolished, and areas of vegetation which have been integrated into the new design. The immediate vicinity is composed of unoccupied planted spaces, a number of high-rise apartment blocks of Modernist inspiration (10- 14 floors) and tall detached houses. The closest neighbouring building is a low, brick built, cube-shaped structure topped with a roof terrace and occupied by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The building plot for the médiathèque came with a certain number of constraints, ranging from regulatory distances with neighbouring plots and roadways, to the underground train running beneath the projected building and thereby strongly influencing its morphology.
