Espace culturel Beaumont Hague

Construire un espace culturel à Beaumont-Hague, dans le Cotentin, c'est intégrer un projet architectural qui tire parti des qualités paysagères de ce morceau de presqu'île. Sur le rivage, les chemins creux sont plantés de haies bocagères qui protègent du vent, et deviennent des voûtes végétales pour filtrer la lumière dans le temps. Ces éléments paysagers sont des formes séculaires de la culture du site mais aussi des espaces inspirants qui peuvent être utilisés pour la conception. L'espace culturel est un bloc compact de 43m de large et 11m de haut. Nous apprécions le jeu changeant de la façade, alternant pr&eac... En savoir plus

heroal C 50 GD

Le système de façade heroal C 50 GD (Glass Design) ouvre de toutes nouvelles possibilités aux architectes et aux concepteurs. L’utilisation d’une épée de verre, qui remplace le montant classique en aluminium sur le plan statique, permet d’obtenir une largeur visible particulièrement étroite. Le système tire doublement profit du concept de réflexion : à l’intérieur, la largeur visible donne l’impression d’être réduite; de l’extérieur, la profondeur de montage du montant le semble également. Les architectes et les concepteurs ont ainsi de toutes nouvelles possibilités de créer une tran... En savoir plus

Shanxiao Sales Pavilion

Chongqing is a poetic land with half of the city, half of the mountain and trees cover thousands of miles. The project is located in Nanshan, Chongqing. Nanshan, located on the south bank of the Yangtze River in Chongqing, has a wealth of tourism resources including natural scenery, cultural landscape, and specialties. In recent years, Nanshan has successively appeared some commercial buildings with cultural connotations such as bookstores and homestays. These buildings are simple in design and distinctive in shape, which has made Nanshan gradually become a synonym for elegant and introverted. And its artistic conception corresponds to Tao's poetry.In people's haunt I built my cot;Of wheel's and hoof's noise, I hear not. How can it leave o... En savoir plus

Aranya Forest Dining Club

The aim of the dining club is to experience the forest that is next to the site by the shore. The first thing is to deal with the relationship between the building and the nature: by doing this we let the building in contact with the forest from three sides, which then divides the volume into three units with trees planted in between, therefore the building intersects with the forest in a harmonious way and the range of scenery viewing is maximized. The three major units are connected by a circulation block facing the community. Glass curtain walls are applied at the forest-facing facade. Light transmitting concrete is used on the side facing the community, and a layer of timber gratings sits in front of it, which hides the entrance behind... En savoir plus
