Zellige Housing Complex / Tectône + Tact architectes

October 1, 2020 Andreas Luco 0

Nantes island is situated in Nantes city in western France and has been the center of the regional industry for decades until the 90s when it was progressively abandoned. Our project is part of the huge restructuring of this abandoned part of the city that has started in the 2000s. In 2014 “CDC Habitat” and “Maison Familiale de Loire-Atlantique” associated with the co-houses « Les Ruches » were selected to lead the construction of 100 apartments counting 15 co-houses in the future quarter of Prairie au Duc, in the city of Nantes. In 2015 an oral competition was organized to select the architectural team that would design and build this housing complex. Our team (composed of the studios: tectone architectes urbanistes and tact architect ) was then selected, on account of our vision on the architectural program, our comprehension of the context, our experiences, and our coordination expertise.

Mr. Sloping Apartment / YCL Studio

September 26, 2020 Andreas Luco 0

Cozy, tiny apartment in the newly developed living area in Vilnius, Paupys. The initial program was to create a simple, but attractive apartment for rent. You may ask: “Why so many slopes?” and we may answer that all started with one huge recuperation pipe that went along the wall through all the apartments. And then all started… To hide one pipe we developed a composition of sloping spaces and doorways that all play the same game in one tiny apartment.

The house is spread out through the ground floor, 2 floors and 1 garret. It had been renovated into a rental apartment. The economic problem was to create maximum space and usable area. It also had to be easy to construct, blocky, solid but unique, attractive to young people. It also had to make the most of the green space.

Eyes Wide Open Apartment / PRUSTA LTD

September 22, 2020 Andreas Luco 0

The double-decker’s eyes are large windows that offer panoramic city views. The four-person family here wanted a funky, luxuriously flavored home. The interior of the luxury sense is caused by subtle brass details. The choice of this metal was inspired by the bronze roofs visible through the windows. All-day sunbathing into the apartment allows the bronze surfaces to sound different colors and create a different mood each time. The large, black stone panels that cover the wall contrast with the brass and help it even more reveal.
