08.01.19  Charles-Henri Tachon architecture & landscape and Territories, landscape designer: Maison de la Réserve

In Congis-sur-Thérouanne (77), the Charles-Henri Tachon architecture & paysage and Territoires, paysagiste agencies delivered one of their most beautiful projects last March: the Maison de la Réserve of the Grand-Voyeux regional estate. A pavilion designed to facilitate the observation of endemic birds and offer visitors an experience they will not soon forget ...

08.01.19  Amelia Tavella Architects: A Strega School

Strega originally means "witch" in Corsican, and by extension means someone unpleasant or strange. The school of the same name, located in the village of Santa Maria Siché in the southwest of the island of beauty, is however the opposite. If its discrete contemporary lines did not betray it, one could believe that it was always part of the landscape, so much it is integrated there.

08.01.19  AIA Life Designers: Tracing room

Realize its premises: a challenge for an architecture agency. So what ? Build new? Rehabilitate, at the risk that the leg of the former takes over the project? Or the opposite, to succeed a delicate renovation where the stamp of existing does not prevent new occupants to put their touch? It is this tour de force that the agency AIA Life Designers realized in its local Nantes delivered in 2017.

08.01.19  Maison Édouard François: Panache

Upside down! In Grenoble, Maison Édouard François has just delivered a new housing tower that plays with the clouds. His particuliarity ? Less height than the "greencloud", a coronation of terraces with beautiful outdoor spaces to the inhabitants and whose distribution is not random: the lowest housing has the highest terrace, and vice versa.

08.01.19  BAMAA: Sainte-Colombe fire station

The small village of Sainte-Colombe (69) is home to the "little Pompeii", a large archeological site hiding Gallo-Roman remains as well as the medieval tower of Valois. A historic melting pot whose contemporary constructions can only feed. The Barracks imagined by BAMAA is no exception and retraces, on its own, the history of the commune auvergnate.

08.01.19  Vincen Cornu Architecture: Joliot-Curie High School

"The interest of an intervention on an existing building resides inter alia in the fact that 50 years of use make it possible to clearly reveal the pathologies". This is the conclusion established by Vincen Cornu who guided the rehabilitation project of Joliot Curie High School in Nanterre (92). A school that until now has been poorly adapted to changing students, reveals its potential under the guidance of the architect.

08.01.19  Jean de Giacinto Architecture Composite and Studio Muoto: Gustave Eiffel school group

Housed in a former industrial wasteland, the new Bac d'Asnieres sur Seine area (92) is equipped with a new school combining nursery and primary schools. In response to the typical urban landscape in which it fits, the construction wants to be a case of greenery in full Paris region.

08.01.19  SBBT Architecture: Nicolas Vanier nursery school

Ask a child to draw a house for you, he will present a square with a triangle. A simplistic representation that nevertheless continues to inspire architects. And what better way to build a kindergarten than to build a set of huts with two-sided roofs and thus to integrate in toddlers the idea that the school can also be a home?

08.01.19  KAAN Architecten + Fres Architects: ISMO

The Institute of Molecular Sciences of Orsay (ISMO) lays its bags in its new headquarters, a state-of-the-art building designed by KAAN Architecten in collaboration with FRES Architects. When technology meets aesthetics ...
