Switzerland The project is based on the magnificent context of the Geneva Lake. Its view, the shadow and the light and the different atmosphere are central. Each level has its own rotation and has a different relationship with its environment. These rotations generate different spaces can then be defined as private or public. The main circulation acts as a tunnel dug into the ground. In order to bring the light to the stairs, at each level, it defines a space in relation to the outside. In addition it generates different spatialities within each apartment. The interior is based on the idea of individual room of different sizes according to its use. Then, the different rooms define themselves the living-room and the kitchen.

The project takes as anchor node two trails hiking. To meet the steep topography of the site, the project revolves around retaining walls between which a public staircase just allow scenic walk. The program for this artist retreat sits between these walls and integrate the circulation that connects both public and private spaces. The indirect light is here, privileged to the artists' studios. The large openings are facing east and west. The walls extend on the outside and give the sensation that the interior and the exterior interpenetrate. The small openings are facing south and benefit from the direct light giving to the circulation pa inside the wall a particular ambiance. Two contrasting atmospheres are seen during the outside walk. Down to the forest, a more denser space. The more we walk up to the top the more we feel free, where a panoramic view open to the splendid context is awaiting you

The general aim of this project was to rethink the existing office space of a building beside the Limmat River in Zurich. After looking at the structure generationg the space, we opted for and open-pla appproach, in preference to a standard layout that repeats itself floor after floor. The building is made up of two external structural cores that house its infrastructure. Planned to make the natural light from the outside, these cores comprise the building’s north-south exposition. On one side is Zurich’s industrial zone; the other is splendid view across the Limmat, toward small houses clus tered amid the natural beauty of the city’s surroundings. Three types of structure are attached to these two cores, each of which generates a specific space with a different way of working. The Vierendeel, the main load-bearing level, gives the option of suspending (with cables) or supporting (with columns) another level. The result is that certain floors are completely liberated from the structure. This composition gives the building an air of insubstantial lightness, along with enhanced transparency. The project freed from the required necessity of the office spaces is now only interested in the space it generates. No more cellular offices, but spaces exclusively open. The improved flexibility of each floor will permit different uses in the future; fifty years from now, this building may well find itself reconverted into apa apartments or museum space... who knows?

“The term »objet trouvé« (found object), describes a piece of art made from found everyday items which are normally not considered art. Trivial items and objects are transformed and combined with each other, thus creating a new context for them, giving them a new meaning. Transfering this con cept into urban space you obtain a tool to reuse exsisting building structures, to redefine voids and unused places. In this process of selforganized occupation the ”self-made city” is developed. “ The “objet trouvé” was found just near the “Sallaz” metro m2 station. It is attached to an existing building as an unloading platform for the trucks. It is made from a simple and very modular steel structure. The platform is surelevated at the height of the entrance of the building, facilitating transport. Two additional pillars are used to support the heavy load on the platform. A mere corrugated steel is used as a protection to the west side and also as the roof, with a “cantilever” on the east and west side. Its dimensions are 3,6m x 4,9m x 4,7m (surface: 17,6 m2)

Switzerland Lausanne is based on the idea of layering, either horizontally or vertically. Lausanne, observed in a larger scale, is a vertical layering. In a smaller scale, the old town is about a layering of the masses. On the contrary the modern Lausanne, like “ Le Flon” is about a layering of transparency of the glasses and also about the reflections on each others. The project is about thoses ideas: layering and reflections. Four concrete slabs creating the vertical layering and the structure is generated by the folding of those slabs. Thus making the holes for the connections and the light. The walls make the structure and generate the privacy. The glass boxes are creating the horizontal layering and the connections between the different vertical layers. We play with the idea of transparency and reflections. More we have layers more it becomes opaque. And mixing those effects with the reflections of the glasses we can make the walls look more transparent and also making it lighter. More we go up more the glass boxes become denser the therefore eliminating visually the mass of the walls and making the building looks lighter.

The project is situated in the district of Eglantines. The interventions come inbetween the old existing bourgeois style houses and densify the whole area. There is a particular typologie, two levels and a half are below the sidewalk, therefore the entrance is not anymore on the ground but a bridge is connecting the building. There are two families living there, one in the uper part and one in the part below. To avoid a too intrusive intervention, the camouflage plays with the glass reflection. The folding angles of the facade are based on the views from the neighbours. It does not permit the neighbours to see themselves but rebuild their own facade and at the same time increase virtually the distance of our project seen from the neighbours. The reflections on the windows of our project and the neighbours also increase the light intensity and provide more light to the lower part of the living spaces (the neighbours and our project).



Behind the glass there is a layered facade, getting as much light as possible while keeping the privacy needed and also increasing the reflections of the glass. The layering alows to fix the furniture inbetween and give to the whole project a sensation of lightness. The folding is also used for the interior. There are two foldings joined together and it creates a continuous space with split levels. The idea of our living environnement is one continuous space, eliminating as much as possible the separations between the inhabitants, leaving only the cur tains to divide the spaces and to value more the common spaces. To get different families closer under one roof is also our way of thinking the housing spaces.

The glass angles are determined from the view of the neighbours. The reflections does not permit the neighbours to see themselves but rebuild their own facade and at the same time, virtually increase the distance of the project from the neighbours.

The reflections on the windows increase the light intensity and brings more light to the lower part of the building and neighbours.

The idea of the chair is that the back of the seat can adapt to the person's back, allowing greater comfort. In addition, two inflexible parts on both side allow a greater handling when moving the chair. At the begining each batten was one continous piece forming the seat and the back. Using therefore the strength of the wood. As a matter of manufacturing (wood) and cost it is in two parts. This forced me to use a pice of rubber between the two pieces and thus amplifying the effect of the flexible backrest.

The main idea came from a helium balloon floating in the air that all children had once in their hands. When it is dark and the lamp turned on, we see therefore that the ball seems to float. It can be used as a small portable lamp for camping or other outdoor uses. It also can be planted in the ground. manufactu It is has been manufactured with an elastic gloss fabric applied with some epoxy resin on a plastic ball.
