Media library St Paul by Peripheriques architectes

Photographer: Luc Boegly

 

The urban planning in which the Saint-Paul’s media center is included strongly answers to the desire of expressing a new centrality for the city. In this context, the public facility that we designed marks territory by its shape, its readability, from the Tamarins road to the great landscape. The completion of a media center downtown allows the structuration of the “gateway” area. It expresses an urban renewal expected for this district which until now was considered on the fringe of the city. (more…)

The simple plan of the house and its clean form is based on the traditional houses of the district. Yet another perfect summer place on our list! ‘The structure of the building is concrete, which reveals itself on a selection of walls and ceilings to contrast with the light tones of the wooden surfaces.

offSET Shed House by Irving Smith Architects

Photographer: Patrick Reynolds

From a context of accrued simple shed-esk dwellings in an isolated and south facing New Zealand coastal surf community, a strategy of sequencing building ‘sets’ (aka surf) was generated to scale new form to its surrounds. New ‘shed’ sets are then offset to allow seasonal living, circulation, and privacy options and for variations in wind and sun exposure.

The house features a 15m long pool which appears to float above the parking. The pool bisects the longitudinal volume which houses the main social spaces and the living quarters.
