The bridge, which will be extensively planted with vegetation and will be based on the existing bridge to provide a space up to three times wider. It will accommodate a square, promenade areas, a garden, soft traffic lanes and the tramway that will serve the future university hospital.

The “Plateau de Paris-Saclay” is the upcoming major elite university campus in France. It is the French answer to American universities such as Columbia and Harvard. Situated twenty kilometers south of Paris an international center for technological research is being built on this campus. Over the long-term, nearly three thousand billion euros have been earmarked for this purpose.

In order to fit in with the urban structure, to obtain as much space as possible for the courtyards and optimal sunlight for the classes, the building follows the limits of the site. Natural daylight, open, bright rooms, a large amount of freedom of movement and direct access to the outdoors were essential planning criteria.

It is more than a hundred years since King Leopold II had the current Ostend station built. A bourgeois building with a magnificent architecture, worthy of the “queen of seaside towns”.

Upcoming completed projects in Autumn 2016

Veolia Headquarters, Porte d’Aubervillers, Paris, France

The dynamics and future urban density of this new neighbourhood, as well as the orientation of the site, the vastness of the sky and the proximity to the water are the prerequisites for the implementation of the project.

The aim is to create a modern working environment that gives this special place a strong identity, in particular by linking architecture and landscape.

Veolia Headquarters, Porte d'Aubervillers

With eight levels of superstructure and three of infrastructure, the project does not exceed the limits of the plot. Towards Avenue Victor Hugo, the project presents a strong urban façade which participates actively in the urban development and serves at the same time as an acoustic barrier. In the East, the volume opens towards the water, revealing its interior spaces. The withdrawals in the higher levels correspond on the one hand to urban regulation, but also to the desire of bringing more sun and natural light into the building.

The garden develops on three levels and offers different atmospheres. The three outdoor areas are inspired by natural environment, yet they are part of a precious landscaping design concept that offers refreshing green islands. The garden in the courtyard serves as a background for the visual continuity with the channel and guarantees a visual depth.

The architect’s concept strives for a close relationship to the existing buildings. Erected in the 1960s these buildings are characterised by a striking architectural signature: an emphatic repetition of arcades that produces a compressed vertical rhythm.

The apartments are laid out on a grid of 3m20 and offer a multitude of types from studios to large 4/5 room apartments. One of the major topics has been the possible evolution by combining the apartments and adapting them to new situations over generations. The plan, composed of modules allows to reorganize and to resize the apartments.

Le Mont-Saint-Michel Causeway
“Mont St-Michel derives all its strength from the landscape in which it stands erect, as the only point of intensity in the infinite flatness of the sands, neither truly an island nor really a peninsula. The one imperative of the project was not to disturb the spirit of the place in connection with this ambiguous status and the lack of landmarks or scale. Visitors must continue to be lost in contemplation.
