New headquarters of Crédit Mutuel de Loire-Atlantique in Nantes, France by AIA Associés, associated with AIA Architectes and Intens-Cité

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: METROPOLIS communication

The basic concept: A light and transparent bank

The question leading to the basic concept underlying this project was: how to offer the highest quality and most efficient ergonomic work spaces possible?  The answer to this question resolved all the other issues facing the operation with regard to its insertion in the urban fabric, its environmental quality and the representation of the activity of banking in a period of financial crisis. Thus, the offices are distributed over three floors forming a thickness of 38 m, organized around two patios. The top floors are comprised of standard offices, and the C-suites, while the ground floor and the lower floors house public and shared functions: exhibition gallery, meeting and reception rooms, café, and restaurant serving the entire site, distributed around a broad atrium. This configuration ensures that all the offices benefit from equivalent spatial qualities and quality lighting. In addition, it fosters optimal communication between occupants and users and easy navigation of the site thanks to looping circulations.

Kanoa Tower in Nantes, France by Studio 02 Architectes

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio 02 Architectes 

The Kanoa tower is a project that fits into the vast urban development plan for the Island of Nantes.

This is a very understated building, whose shape, worked to the extreme, is the main feature.  To minimize the tower’s impact on the street, it was designed in a “boot” shape and discreetly covered in zinc, which was laid down in shingles to create a scaled effect.

After the fashion of the general conversion of the Nantes block, our architecture exploits the special elements of its environment and draws its beauty from the reinterpretation of these. Set in an ideal location, the building becomes a marker for a place to meet.

New’R, ZAC EuroNantes Gare in Nantes, France by Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Article source: Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

This emblematic project in the EuroNantes quarter introduces a gradation in the way people live in the air. The lower floors come in varying kinds of outside spaces with plant bins built into the railings. The higher floors, above any obstructed views, have terraces that become big panoramic screens with winter gardens protected from winds and bad weather. The script is honed and simple. The building reflects an image of great sobriety. Encased in light-coloured metal sidings, the façades catch the light in a constantly changing play of reflected light. Work on the skyline introduces variations in forms and varying ownership of the roofs. This enables different scales of views to people looking at the building from a distance and a diversity of places for the building’s users. The design plays on the idea of movement, backgrounds and multiplicity. Architecture in cinema scope.

Esteban Housing in Nantes, France by Leibar-Seigneurin

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Leibar-Seigneurin

The starting point for the architectural approach of this project was a piece of “virgin” land, the form and profile of which gave little indication of the mutations to come.

We therefore considered the site as a starting point, a “base” on which different types of architecture could be developed.

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Tarabusi

The program is composed of 2 apartment blocks of 36 flats and 7 blocks of Multi-Family Dwellings with 26 flats. Each typology correspond to different ways of living: the first one looks like \”classic\” and fixed, while the second one is atypical and evolutionary. The aim is to answer with a maximum of possibilities to the different buyers’ demands (the first buyers, investors, families, early couples, etc …).
