[E]co-barrio en Le palmeraie�


Agadir ______________________ Morocco The project in Agadir is situated in an area of urban growth, a meeting space between two main roads and the confluence with a ravine. The ecobarrio focuses on a theoretical model based on resilience and how to apply in a practical way. Resilience in the urban environment seeks to reduce vulnerability and is also linked to the dynamic concepts of development and urban growth. The project focus on dealing with external changes whilst maintaining the structure, functions, and identity. Reinforced with other theoric concepts as dynamic equilibrium, cycles, thresholds, and panarchy are reflecting the effects through scales. General strategies of action are established, based on an analysis of uses, mobility, free spaces and social cohesion. P. 4

The proposal materializes closing on the outside, a harder faรงade that emphasizes the contour and looking for the ambiguity of the scale. The connectors that supply the dwellings became a filter and give a different kind of space along with secondary courtyards, separate from the main green axes. The internal area is transformed in that way, intensifying and creating a distinction between areas, and where life and movement of the community are encouraged.

Bisรกu____________________ Guinea-Bisรกu In the middle of an underdeveloped country, the city of Guinea tries to grow surrounded by many problems and deficiencies. Through private initiatives, the possibility arises of generating a proposal that seeks to generate a trigger point, that keeps identity with the place and the tradition. A hotel complex that closes to the outside to be reborn through three patios that articulate the proposal. Each of them with an identity, each with a different function. Water becomes a fundamental element as it is a city in which rain periods of 4 months are interspersed with drought. The project, instead of repelling the water, brings it back and stores it under one of the patios.

It falls furiously, uncontrollably. It has been a long wait. The landscape is beautiful. The people communing amongst each other conscious of how the scene is flooded by an electrical blue. It will paint in its path hay rooves like those from long ago, aiming to be silently Shephered to a warm patio where they come to lay rest. Then continuing its journey through the rock, gravel and charcoal that undresses its impurities, for the grace of the thirsty. Joint 1

BLOOM & MINDEL.Beech Design and Build

Manchester_________________________ Two enlisted buildings grade 2 in the middle of Manchester. A sensitive architectural response to the existing warehouse buildings and their historical and physical context. The aim to design and deliver the proposals that will return 11 Bloom Street and 10 Minshull Street to active use and complete the repair and regeneration of the vacant listed buildings. With works that includes the repair, refurbishment and new use of 11 Bloom Street and 10 Minshull Street, including the removal of nonoriginal internal partitions and construction of a new single storey vertical extension and roof terrace to 11 Bloom Street to provide 80 residential apartments hard landscaping, external lighting, access, servicing and other associated works.

P. 14

Mindel House was constructed as a warehouse c. 1876 and is typical of this period. As a warehouse, the building would have been built with offices at the ground and first floors, with the upper floors open. Mindel House was a manufacturer’s warehouse of a typical plan, being almost square and each floor was generally divided into specialist departments.

P. 15

The building in Bloom St. was constructed also as a warehouse, most likely finished in 1877 when it appears in the trade directories with several occupants. The building layout is also typical of an export warehouse in that it had a corner doorway with steps up to a raised ground floor. This led directly to a fine staircase rising through the building. Offices and the wareroom were likely on the ground floor, with more offices on the first floor, also shown by the embellishment of the architecture in these areas, such as plaster cornices.

As a whole, both buildings holds a great deal of communal, historic and evidential value forming a part of a group of warehouses built at the same style and in the same location. Also, as it retains much of the external façade from its original consJANUARY 2018 | Design and access statement | 09 truction, it also has a high degree of aesthetic value, mainly relating to the Bloom Street and Minshull Street frontages. The interior has survived less well, but still retains several original features, and so does not detract from the overall heritage value.

Beech Design and Build

Manchester_________________________ From early analysis undertaken, it became apparent that the site was not fulfilling its potential and that there was an opportunity to create a new form to act as a gateway landmark building towards MediaCity:UK. The proposal of 19 apartments was taken after taking into account the limitations of the site, boundary, height and services as well as exploring a number of massing options, the best location for the new building would be on the north-west corner of the site with an L-shaped massing

P. 18

The proposed scheme has been considered in response to the opportunities and constraints presented by the site. The scheme aims to achieve the following key principles: • Defining the edges of the site, strengthening the urban grain of the area and creating good design precedents for future developments. • Responding to the varying scales along the street scene. The site’s prominent position at the junction of South Langworthy Road and Eccles New Road provides the opportunity to create a feature building at the gateway towards MediaCityUK. • Designing a building with a contemporary residential appearance to act as the entrance into MediaCity. • Encouraging sustainable city living, with a large secure bike storage and a sustainable waste management strategy. • Acknowledging the scheme’s environmental responsibilities and recognising its obligations, aiming to contribute positively into the local area by minimising its environmental impact of the building
