Copper Cube Haus

Résidence secondaire d'un professionnel au mode de vie itinérant, cet appartement a été conçu pour créer un sentiment de stabilité et de repos entre deux voyages. Le point central de l'intervention spatiale était l'ouverture de l'orchestration linéaire compartimentée existante dans un cadre optimiste, presque semblable à un studio. Le héros de l'histoire était le bloc cuisine, délimité en un cuboïde détaché (libre du plafond et des murs) qui servirait à la fois de bar/comptoir (du côté du salon) et d'espace de cuisson. La distinction a été renforcée par un revêtement en cu... En savoir plus

Maison FV

Jouant avec les reflets de lumière, la nouvelle peau de zinc Azengar de cette maison traditionnelle initie un dialogue subtil avec son environnement, et lui donne un second souffle. À l’occasion de travaux de rénovation énergétique et de surélévation, le choix de ce matériau est rapidement apparu comme une évidence. À la fois noble et pérenne, utilisable aussi bien en bardage qu’en toiture, l’exploitation de son potentiel a permis un traitement fin des détails de retournement pour créer une enveloppe continue, comme un écrin. La teinte Azengar, douce et naturelle, en plus de réfléchir le contexte, est sensible au... En savoir plus

Projet • By Equipo de ArquitecturaÉcoles primaires


“I got an order from the school board that said ‘We have a great idea. We should not put windows in the school because children need wall space for their paintings, and also windows can distract from the teacher’. Now, what teacher deserves that much attention? After all, the birds outside, the person scurrying for shelter in the rain, the leaves falling from the trees, the clouds passing by, the sun penetrating: these are all great things. They are lessons in themselves.” – Louis Kahn   In 2001, The Guardian published a survey that invited children to suggest the school of their dreams. The result was gathered as the “Children’s Manifesto”, published in a book called “The School... En savoir plus

Campus Orange Lyon

The new regional headquarters for telecommunications company Orange is an extension and renovation of an old telephone exchange. While making the most of the industrial building, it also gives an urban coherence to the city block by breaking the project into two ‘folded’ volumes that wrap around the existing building.Our starting position with regards integration within the neighbourhood was to create a large, uniform building on a continuous ground plane, so reducing what we see as the negative effects of a multiple development, which can be overloaded with too many building types and too many textures.The new buildings find harmony in the homogenous grid of their facades (echoing the existing building) and the cut surfaces tha...

45m2 Home

The goal of this project was to transform an existing storage on the roof of a residential apartment to a livable place. Considering the fact that existing space was very limited, design team initial concept was to incorporate all the residential required spaces in such a small space.

Our response to the challenging architectural installation competition near one of the most important historic gardens “Afif Abad Garden” in Shiraz, Iran was PAUSE.PAUSE is the childish adventure feeling and inspiration that we have not experienced since so many years ago. PAUSE tries to revive the feelings that we have been ignored. Feeling of brick texture tactile; hearing the sound of our steps on the metal sheets, looking at the sky which we pass under of it every single day without any attention to it, not even trying to pause and enjoy watching it. Listening to the “water features located at the site”.PAUSE from the exterior is a cube that holds a suspended brick volume and this is adequate enough to incite the adventure and curiosity...
