Housing ZAC Port Marianne

 photo 01V2_full_zps147fd397.jpg  photo 11V2_full_zps2ef691ac.jpg Between Avenue Pierre Mendes-France and Avenue 98 World of Montpellier, the ZAC Port Marianne comes from the willingness of the municipality to draw a garden city close to the city center, easily accessible thanks to the numerous infrastructure transport (major roads, tram, bicycle network). Associated with several architects, Christian de Portzamparc here imagined a large 7-hectare park where a group of 11 islands representing 1,900 housing emerges.

Sensualscaping Stairs

 photo ---IMG_2824_950_zps2da63b41.jpg  photo Staircase_duo_950_zps537208cd.jpg " These stairs for a residential project (Sensualscaping) took us in an important new direction, harnessing digital production and fabrication to form a seamless and deeply sculptural experience. This page documents a component that we felt was rich enough in detail to merit further exploration and explanation. The stair is a continuation and intensification of the simple graphic skirting board lines that trace their way through the house. As they turn the corner into the stair void, they expand like a genie released from a lamp, curling and separating and bifurcating from the wall to form the delicate edge of the stair treads, lifting into the air to rise as the veil of the balustrade. This veil hangs gently from above as a series of thin paired threads, softly pulled back at the entry to allow movement past, gently splaying around the corner to meet and carry the arriving visitor onwards & upwards." - Atmos Studio  photo ---IMG_0869_950_zps6ad822e4.jpg  photo IMG_0208_950_zps41c457c6.jpg

The home of the national collective film memory presented itself as an unpretentious accumulation of sheds, concerned more about the contents than the packaging. The extension project accepts this starting point and makes it its own. The structure of the existing buildings arranged in a linear fashion is translated by new additions and remodeling into a composite, ambivalent form of parallel buildings of different lengths. Just the end situation is marked by angled cuts; the building in this way acquires a face.'
