This project involves alterations and additions to a historic 1830’s building located in the inner city suburb of Fitzroy. Originally operating as private horse stables for a nearby mansion, the triple brick building consists of a double height warehouse space with timber trusses and clerestory windows, adjacent to a two storey hay loft. The conversion of the building to a single family residence required a response that balanced the heritage value of the existing building (which had been deemed individually significant), with the desire of the client for a high tech environmentally sustainable house that reflected their needs as a tight-knit family. Although sited in a dense urban setting, the brief called for a “sense of the natural environment and the seasons with views to the sky from the interior”. The clients also commented that the family members “tend to gravitate towards one another from different areas of the house”.

Clouds exhibit both wave-like patterns and fractal geometries – one of which is referred to as an Apollonian gasket. This geometry forms an underlying system of organization for the house in both plan and section. The main stables area is a large open plan volume where functions are delineated by 360 degree free standing joinery. A winding mezzanine extends overhead, maintaining visual connection between the two levels to reinforce the notion that this is a house that celebrates “family” as a form of social engagement or gemeinschaft.

The European Union Square is the active center and heart of the western sector of Massy. The space is very urban, dense, and lively; life revolves around a large public space.Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Frédéric DelangleThe project exploits its particular situation and creates a link between the two different landscapes: the city and the railway tracks. It consists of two buildings, so two programs, accessed through a common garden: a hotel and a student residence sit atop a continuous base of shops. The arrangement of the buildings is thought to open the garden on the square and create a visual breakthrough suggesting the railway landscape in the distance. On the side facing the city, the building façade is very solid and continuous. On the railway side, it leaves room for unobstructed views of the emptiness of the railways and shows a more contemporary face of the city.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe facades facing the street are made solely and simply of glass. Out of public limit, with colored metal siding, they ” undulate” and create various perspectives with tones that produce a vibration and enhance the garden. They create a warm environment and they enliven the square as well as the side that faces the railway tracks. Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleProject gallerySee allShow lessStudio Libeskind, Mecanoo and Haptic Appointed to Van Alen Institute’s International…Architecture NewsDuplex in Tel Aviv / Toledano +ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Place de l’Union Européenne, 91300 Massy, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.
