La Petite Halle

Faced with global warming and increasingly demanding local regulations, the mindsets home owners are changing.

Three years ago, they embarked on the design and marketing of an eco-responsible neighborhood project. In 2018, a first program named “La Petite Halle” was set up 50 km north of Paris, in Luzarches.

Royal De Ree Holland

Dutch flower bulb company Royal De Ree Holland had plans to renovate their roof for some time, but the decision to install a photovoltaic system accelerated the project. The renovation involved their two locations in Lisserbroek (North Holland). From March to July 2019, a total of 33,000 m² of roof surface was insulated, covered with Firestone’s RubberGard EPDM waterproofing membrane and equipped with 11,000 m² of solar panels. Flower bulbs are treated in air-conditioned halls, so moisture infiltration and lack of proper insulation can have a harmful impact.

After-School Care Centre Waldorf School

The grounds of the Waldorf School in Prenzlauer Berg possess a unique urban positioning between socialist prefabricated structures, Wilhelminian style blocks and the green spaces of the Jewish cemetery.

Het Zwin Nature center

La riserva ornitologica e naturale "Het Zwin" è un'area naturale protetta tra le Fiandre e i Paesi Bassi. L'incarico comprendeva la riprogettazione del parco naturale esistente e la creazione di un nuovo centro visitatori.   L'autentico paesaggio marittimo con le sue dune di sabbia, le pianure fangose e le saline, modellato dalla brezza marina, è costituito principalmente da linee ondulate. All'interno di questo paesaggio ondulato gli architetti di COUSSÉE & GORIS hanno costruito volumi lineari astratti come ancoraggi nel paesaggio. Questi interventi architettonici consistono in una serie di linee parallele, che da un lato strutturano il paesaggio e dall'altro lo riparano come schermi di vento nella zona di Z... Altro
