BRICK BUILDING eclate toi
This project principal aim was to create a passive public building with brick. It is situated in a slope. The building had to be closed on itself. It is composed of two different parts and so two different functions. The two parts are separated by a sort of long patio wich brings light on the upper part but so that it is not so wide to keep the heat inside. The down part has a roof with solar panels sufficient to bring the electricity for artificial light. In the middle part, several boxes appeares from the structure to link the two part and have a view on each extremity of the long patio. place : Nancy, France typology : Library for children prize : 3rd

HOUSING UNIT the long house
This project is really particular because, it was required to take advantage of the very special site. In fact, the site parcel was only three meters wide. This house take advantage of the existing house by reproduicing the silhouette of it on one side and not from the other. All the openings are situated South and as the house is really slim itâ€™s sufficient in itself.

ARCHITECTURAL RESTRUCTURATION la casemate
The aim of this project was to reuse an old military building and take advantage of its situation in the center of the city. It was historicaly, a wall, and now it has to be the door of the center and a landmark. The concept was to put rythm in this really flat old building playing with different heights. The parking is attached to the artists center to give another direction to the project, a central area link the two different parts and gather all the circulations.

URBAN RESTRUCTURATION AND LINKING the handshake
The main idea of the design is to create a light rail system, so the public transport will turn faster and more regular. The line crosses through populous areas and makes business, commercial and educational areas easily acessible. Starting from the campus of Oulu, it joins the city center and reaches Kaakkuri in the south near the Oulu airport. The new light rail system not only develops the public transportation, but creates new junctions to the city, gives new areas which can gather and seve the citizens. It also helps solving social problems and problem s in the city structure. In my detailed design aera I confronted a problem, that two parts of Oulu are separated by a freeway. These areas also don’t have the best public transport connections to other parts of the city. With my new light rail station, I connect the two sides of the freeway, providing new functions and living spaces for the people. Basically, the edge of the freeway is housing area separated with hills which block the noise pollution of the traffic. I replace this empty, unused area with new urban functions, such as offices, commercial places, new residential aeras, public squares, private and public gardens and we join them with an underground connection under the freeway . The new «H&K Handshake» station is also connected with the underground which integrates the light rail in the urban space. The light traffic roads cross the tracks, which generates a dinamic movement combinad with the people and the light rail. The closeness of the light rail gives an urban feeling in a smaller scale, and for the the bigger scale the 6-8 storey buildings create a gate for people entering Oulu. To give identity to both sides, the east side’s architecture is different from the west side’s one.

This building is revealed as being the center of the new district of West Helsinki. It is written in the extension of existing building and allows rapprochment between various entities. It brings together and extends the open lanscape with views in each interior. The three monumental buildings give impression of touching each other without actually doing it, it creates a permanent tension. The architecture recalls navalarchitecture and inspires the structural fuction. Having to remember the yachting activity of the site. Letâ€™s call it French kiss.

BUILDING A VILLAGE thousand leaves
In this project the main focus of attention was the attractiveness of this new urban area meaning social sense as meaning the tourist. The main concept, using the development options 1 and 2, providing a basis for reflection, is the creation of an urban net non-existent at the base. Indeed this new neighborhood of Paltamo must be provided with infrastructure needed for its development. Urbanisation is primarily from the center of Paltamo through a road that winds through the landscape and feeds. The new network should be seen as the nervous system of the project. Secondarily, a north-south axis allows to focus on the rehabilitation of old wooden sheds on the site and create a central space, public, which opens south of the lake. The purpose of this concept is to create an airy space makes all different layers converging towards the lake, landmark. The alternation of urban spaces and natural areas will keep the identity of the place while making it habitable. Each home has a view of the natural landscape, it is a park, a forest or lake. Moreover, the nature seeps into the neighborhood with large semi-public plazas that are inserted between blocks of houses. place : Paltamo, Finland typology : Small housing, hotel, bars, restaurants
