Espace culturel 'Le Cèdre'

The socio-cultural and youth center 'Le Cèdre' is the last piece in the urban and landscape redevelopment project of the 'Hauts d'Asnières' district.All the social, cultural and symbolic functions of the district are brought together there in a logic of mutualisation which optimizes resources - human, material and energy - and promotes their synergies. On the plot in the form of a trapezoidal island, the figure built in an “S” shape organizes in its wings the different poles of the program - childhood / youth, family, service / mediation and artistic / cultural - at the same time as it qualifies the spaces. free of the site and preserves their wooded heritage. With the building as an assert, three gardens with di... More

Bioclimatic winery, Aspiran

Located on the communal agricultural fringes, the plot, thanks to a relief of edge of plain, overlooks the historic village center. The landscape and the slope of the terrain dictated the layout of the uses. Being seen from afar, the new construction had to be thought of as part of the larger landscape.Inspired by agricultural architecture and the local climate, the project proposes a compact volume for a close relationship between form and material. The two entities of the program take roots in the slope. For a better control of the supply of natural light and to ensure a development that requires a more consistent height, the wine-growing activity was placed on the ground floor. Located above the cellar and facing south, the house devel... More

House in Fasoula, Cyprus

The inspiration that triggered the design of this bioclimatic solar house in Fasoula, Cyprus, was the will to create a white "Z" shaped form, that was going to characterize the morphology of the building. This form is parallel to the east-west axis and serves as a passive sun protection system, integrated into the design.  The spaces were translated in volumes which created a composition that was placed into the cavities of this white form. The design is moved by simple geometries touching the modern minimalist trends, which led to the use of exposed concrete, large wooden surfaces and the use of the “neutral” white color.  The building had to be placed in a slope, so the parking spaces were made in the earth, as a b...

Outdoor restaurant -reception area

Creating of a restaurant -reception area of ​​480 square meters in Rhodes in order to be used all year round. The customer wanted the space to be watertight in winter and to keep warm and in summer to open on the roof and perimeter. During the day to have shading and at night customers can see the starry sky. The most important thing was to make a combination so that static and urban planning is a stable construction with mobile - temporary housing. Also important from the 2 months that the space operated to operate all 12 months.

House E N

The House E+N was designed for a couple of retired southern Brazilian (gaúchos), who dreamed of leaving an apartment, to live in a house with garden with enough space to make a vegetable plot. The design is basically a white parallelepiped of 12x14,5m that opens organically creating spaces between interior and exterior, through patios, terraces, connections, and the open garage. This white element is placed on a sloping terrain, with a black wall that contacts the slope. The project is divided into 3 well-defined areas: service area (kitchen and laundry), social area (living and dining room), and intimate area (bedrooms and bathrooms). The kitchen area is integrated with the living room, with a kitchen island appearing as the main... More

Seville Cruise Ship Terminal Phase 2

The second parts can also be good. This is the second part of our Seville Cruise Terminal project, which expands and upgrades the original building. Ports and cities share the common feature of undergoing constant change. To resolve the challenges brought on by that interaction, port buildings must be able to change over time, without recourse to improvisation. One solution can be to propose modular industrial architecture that highlights the port’s distinctive nature, though designed with the architectural quality required to ensure the respective urban integration. In that regard, the Port of Seville needed a new cruise ship terminal that would be flexible, multi-purpose, extendable, easily removable and even transportable. That w... More

House in Limassol IV

The design intention of this bioclimatic residence in Limassol was to create a compact form that morphologically characterizes the building. Thus, all the functions and spaces were translated into solid compact volumes that created a composition, which was framed by an exposed concrete surface. This surface has a double role, since beyond the morphological signage of the project, it also functions as a passive solar protection device. In general, the design consists of simple geometries that touch the current minimalistic morphologies. This logic led to the use of exposed concrete, wooden surfaces and the neutral white and gray colors. The differentiation in the material and the coloring of each volume, follows the differentiation in its i... More

House in Limassol IX

The design of this house was based on minimalistic morphological choices, which were made in order to distinguish its architectural features, while the modernistic design patterns led to a result without decorations and any kind of exaggeration. Thus, the main idea is analyzed into the composition of two main volumes, which are separated by their function, but also by their material - exposed concrete for the public uses, white for the private ones. Generally, the design is driven by simple geometries, close to modernistic and minimalistic trends. This logic led to the use of the sincere exposed visible concrete, large wooden surfaces, and the neutral white and gray colors. The differentiation in the materiality and the color of each volum...

Textile bamboo structures for open-air events

Bambutec designed textile bamboo structures for the open-air sporting event Rio Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Mobile and deployable structures were built at seaside public spaces as Copacabana, Arpoador, Ipanema, Joatinga and Barra da Tijuca beaches, among others. The structures apply treated bamboo poles, tensile membranes and flexible joints. Bioclimatic bamboo tents made of cotton fabrics and acrylic membranes covered a total area of 820 sqm, rapidly mounted and dismounted by a team of skilled bamboo builders. Bamboo tents create bioclimatic spaces due to the applied biomaterials and to the properties of passage of the air and protection for sun and rain, which is an important aspect for roof structures in the tropical climate....
