Individual garage and storage
.
Since the end of the 19th century, the Lausanne region has put aside the construction of local sandstone called "molasse". All the important buildings in the region - such as the cathedral, the castle and the former university - were built with this stone.

The Nialin quarter in Savigny, in the heart of which the garage and workshop project is located, is a former molasse quarry which employed around thirty workers until 1870. More generally, the molasse quarries in Savigny were developed when those in Lausanne were too difficult to access. Today, the commune keeps the trace of this excavation by large circuses dug in the topography, terraces on which the individual houses were then built, during the 1970s.

The stone facade project has its origins in the history of the place, but its formal logic lies in the optimisation of the size of the blocks and the desire to reduce the effort of building. 2m wide by 1,20m high by 20cm thick; this was the basic measure defined in consultation with the operators and craftsmen of the Villarlod quarry for the design.

In addition to the bluestone, the facade consists of prefabricated concrete elements that act as a horizontal drop and a vertical windbreak. At the same time, these elements incorporate a reinforcement mesh that enables the monolithic construction to withstand seismic stresses.

Finally, the roof of the building is a wooden frame and the eaves that protect the stones from erosion will integrate photovoltaic panels in the form of a cornice that completes an assumed tectonic composition.

Infrastructure individuelle et atelier
.
Depuis la fin du 19ème siècle, la région de Lausanne a mis de côté la construction en grès local appelé "molasse". C'est notamment avec cette pierre qu'ont été construits tous les bâtiments importants de la région - comme la cathédrale, le château et l'ancienne université.

Le quartier du Nialin, à Savigny, au cœur duquel se trouve le projet de garage et atelier, est une ancienne carrière de molasse qui employait jusqu’en 1870 une trentaine d’ouvriers. Plus généralement, les carrières de molasse de Savigny se sont développées lorsque celles de Lausanne furent trop difficile d’accès. Aujourd’hui, la commune garde la trace de cette excavation par de grands cirques creusés dans la topographie, terrasses sur lesquelles les maisons individuelles ont ensuite été édifiées, au cours des années 1970.

Le projet de façade en pierre trouve son origine dans l’histoire du lieu mais sa logique formelle réside dans l’optimisation de la taille des blocs et la volonté de réduire l’effort de mise en œuvre. Deux mètres de large par un mètre vingt de haut par vingt centimètre d’épais ; telle est la mesure de base définie de concert avec les exploitants et artisans de la carrière de Villarlod pour le dessin du projet.

Outre la pierre bleue, la façade se compose d’éléments préfabriqués en béton qui font office de goutte pendante à l’horizontale et de coupe-vent à la verticale. Ces éléments intègrent par la même occasion un maillage d’armature permettant à la construction monolithique de résister aux contraintes sismiques.

Finalement, la couverture du bâtiment est une charpente bois et l’avant-toit qui protège les pierres de l’érosion intégrera des panneaux photovoltaïques sous la forme d’une corniche qui termine une composition tectonique assumée.

(009) Collective Interstice, Echichens CH, 2021

Transformation of a single-family house into a collective habitat

It is the inversion of a void by a solid; an a priori anecdotal gap, replaced by an open volume on a 1960s single-family house. The modest intervention transforms a closed system into a typology of collective housing, flexible and evolutive.

The project is intended to be a "light bubble" that provides an entrance area open to the outside for a flat, while bringing natural light to the common vertical circulation. The intervention makes it possible to turn around the central staircase, transforming the 3 room flat with one bathroom into a 4 or 5 room flat with 2 bathrooms.

The thin and assumed metal frame elements that materialize the project are at the same time interior walls and façade elements; an interface between two spaces that touch and identify each other. Interiority (inner) is embodied as an ambiguous notion, also translated in the choice of double-sided granulated glass.

In response to the current problem of the densification of residential areas, the use of specific architectural interventions questions lifestyles and interfaces between dwellings - while at the same time bringing quality to them.

Transformation d’une maison individuelle en habitat collectif

C’est l’inversion d’un vide par un plein ; un redan a priori anecdotique, remplacé par un volume ouvert sur une maison individuelle des années 1960. L’intervention modeste transforme un système fermé en une typologie d’habitat collectif, flexible et évolutif.

Le projet se veut comme une « bulle de lumière » qui offre un lieu d’entrée ouvert vers l’extérieur pour un appartement, tout en amenant de la lumière naturelle à la circulation verticale commune. L’intervention rend possible de tourner autour de l’escalier central, transformant l’appartement de 3 pièces avec une salle d’eau en 4 ou 5 pces avec 2 salles d’eau.

Les éléments de cadres métalliques fins et assumés qui matérialisent le projet sont tour à tour parois intérieures et éléments de façade ; une interface entre deux espaces qui se touchent et s’identifient mutuellement. L’intériorité (inner) s’incarne comme une notion ambigüe, traduite aussi dans le choix du verre à double face granulé.

En réponse à la problématique actuelle de densification des zones villas, le recourt à des interventions architecturalement spécifiques questionne les modes de vies et les interfaces entre logements – tout en leur apportant de la qualité.

Reconstruction of a wooden hameau, 2021-2022, Hérémence CH

The traditional wooden construction called "madrier" is an essential part of the built heritage of the Valaisan Alps. Initially gathered in the form of agricultural settlements, these wooden " ruins " have, due to their static dismantling system, the possibility of being transported and rebuilt on new foundations. Small communities can develop again by integrating the constructive elements and identity of the past.

La construction traditionnelle en pièce de bois appelée « madrier » est un artisanat incontournable du patrimoine construit des alpes valaisannes. Initialement réunies sous forme de hameaux agricole, ces « ruines » ont intrinsèquement, de part leurs système statique démontable, la possibilité d’être transportées et reconstruites sur de nouvelles fondations. De petite communauté peuvent à nouveau se développer en intégrant les éléments constructifs et identitaire du passé.

Roof elevation and transformation – school infrastructure

Chantemerle school (@chantemerle1) has developed through self-construction. A model directly linked to the pedagogy it transmits. At present the school complex comprises four main buildings connected by several interstitial elements that guarantee its hybrid internal continuity. The functions are totally mixed and interconnected even within a single floor of a building creating an open and organic system.
The project enlarges one of the buildings by raising its roof and designing a new connection from which common spaces, bedrooms and classrooms are developed reinforcing the idea of mixed cohabitation.
A new entrance space to the complex cuts across the floors proposing a new relationship to the outside.

House extension and renovation, 2021, Tour-de-Peilz CH

Despite a great potential for evolution, the suburban fabric still struggles to respond to the need for flexibility and the arrival of new lifestyles.
By placing two wooden pavilions on top of a 1960s house, new possibilities for use emerge, while allowing for reversibility of configurations. A staircase is delicately placed in the existing house and connects the two floors through the center of the volume and allows natural light to enter. On the new floor, a wooden terrasse separates and connects the twin volumes by articulating their in-between space in a scenic platform on the Riviera landscape.

Surélévation et rénovation maison individuelle, 2021, Tour-de-Peilz CH

Malgré un grand potentiel d’évolution, le tissu pavillonnaire peine toujours à répondre au besoin en flexibilité et à l’arrivée de nouveaux modes de vie.
En déposant précisément deux pavillons en bois sur une maison des années 1960, de nouvelles possibilités d’utilisations se dessinent tout en permettant une réversibilité des configurations. Un escalier vient délicatement prendre place dans la maison existante et relie les deux étages par le centre du volume et permet une arrivée de lumière naturelle.
Au nouvel étage, une terrasse en bois sépare et relie les volumes jumeaux en articulant leur « entre-deux » en une plateforme scénique sur le paysage de la Riviera.

Transformation and renovation of an individual villa - creation of an internal partition
St Prex (VD)

It is the lower floor of a family villa that we want to be able to evolve, according to the needs of its inhabitants; to allow it to become in alternance a common space of meeting and a place of privacy and intimacy.

By precisely drawing a line that distinguishes an inside from an outside, and by placing a wall along this line, several moments are identified in this folded space: entrance and living room, dressing room and alcove. Then, by the movement of this wall, the uses are reversed: the mobile wall allows to privatize a part of the living room to create a vast guest room in relation with its own intimate spaces.

By its materiality, glass and metal, the wall plays with the perception and the point of view of the user: sometimes moiré, translucent or even opaque, according to the needs of intimacy and light. In this movement of bodies in space, some rooms tease the standards of conventional housing, such as the bedroom that unfolds at night and closes during the day only to take the size of a bed.

The project can be read as a device in depth (mise en abyme), whose articulated deployment guides the uses. By choreographing the movements of the occupants, it stages the multiple ways of inhabiting this place.

Transformation et rénovation d’une villa individuelle - création d’une partition interne
St Prex (VD)

C’est l’étage inférieur d’une villa familiale que l’on veut capable d’évoluer, au gré des besoins de ses habitants; lui permettre de devenir tour à tour espace commun de rencontre et lieu de repli et d’intimité.

En traçant précisément une ligne qui distingue un dedans d’un dehors, et en plaçant un mur habité (wall) le long de cette ligne, plusieurs moments sont identifiés dans cet espace plié: entrée et séjour, vestiaire et alcôve. Puis par la mise en mouvement de ce mur, les usages se renversent: le mur mobile permet de privatiser une partie du séjour pour créer une vaste chambre d’amis en relation avec ses propres espaces intimes.

Par sa matérialité, de verre et de métal, le mur joue avec la perception et le point de vue de l’usager : parfois moiré, translucide ou même opaque, au gré des besoins d’intimité et de lumière. Dans ce mouvement des corps dans l’espace, certaines pièces taquinent les standards du logement conventionnel, à l’exemple de la chambre à coucher qui se déploie la nuit et ne se referme la journée que pour prendre la taille d’un lit.

Le projet peut se lire comme un dispositif en profondeur (mise en abyme), dont le déploiement articulé oriente les usages. En chorégraphiant les mouvements des occupants, il met en scène les multiples manières d’habiter ce lieu.

(011) Collective Home

  • fr

La transformation a pour objectif de faire d’une villa unifamiliale un internat pour treize adolescents et deux adultes. Trois interventions ponctuelles et identitaires redéfinissent le programme de la maison, pour lui conférer une réalité collective, et non plus seulement individuelle : l’escalier, la cuisine et les salles d’eau.

L’escalier, en lien avec l’entrée de la maison, est une coupe (cut) ample dans l’existant, à la mesure de la collectivité et non plus de l’individu. Au rez et au premier étage, la double-hauteur souligne l’entrée et distingue les deux niveaux de chambres des espaces collectifs, situés au rez inférieur. Par sa forme hélicoïdale, l’escalier articule les trois étages en minimisant son empreinte sur les paliers. Le choix du ferrociment a permis de se libérer des contraintes de coffrage et de pouvoir s’accrocher directement aux éléments existants, tout en offrant une grande liberté plastique à cet objet monumental et générateur de spatialité.

La cuisine, fermée et individuelle, s’ouvre pour accueillir la nouvelle dimension collective de la maison. L’ancienne cheminée abrite des niches de travail et devient un mur habité.
Les salles d’eau, auparavant surdimensionnées et clinquantes, sont conçues pour que plusieurs jeunes puissent se doucher en même temps. Dans ces espaces, les douches ne sont pas pensées comme des pièces, mais comme des espaces (gap), dont la forme épouse l’espace minimal intime dont l’usager a besoin pour pouvoir se laver. Le choix de grandes feuilles de métal pour la conception de ces douches préfigure ces surfaces qui deviennent espaces par leur courbe.

Transformation and extension of a Collective House
"For more than 50 years, the Graubünden municipality of Roveredo has been cut in two by a highway built against the will of the population. A connection that has taken away homes, land and the only square in the town. Now, for the first time in Switzerland, the motorway will be dismantled and the land returned to citizens."

Transformation implies making choices on what we consider important in the life history of a building.
The notions of original or authentic state in time are often simplistic views of diversiform and vibrant moments.
A house made of stones stood there through continuous changes for 200 years before its restauration in 2002.
The development of a new path across the ancient core of the building unfolds new forms of inhabiting. A play of unexpected sequences animates the in-between.

Rorè
Trasformazione ed estensione di un Abitazione Collettiva
"Per più di 50 anni il comune grigionese di Roveredo è stato tagliato in due da un’autostrada costruita contro il volere della popolazione. Un collegamento che ha portato via abitazioni, terreni e l’unica piazza del paese. Ora, per la prima volta in Svizzera, l’autostrada verrà smantellata e il sedime restituito ai cittadini."

La trasformazione implica fare scelte su ciò che consideriamo importante nella vita di un edificio.
Le nozioni di stato originale o autentico sono spesso visioni temporali semplicistiche di momenti altresì diversi e vibranti.
Una casa in pietra ha attraversato 200 anni tra continui cambiamenti prima del suo restauro nel 2002.
Lo sviluppo di un nuovo percorso attraverso l'antico nucleo dell'edificio svela nuove forme di abitare. Un gioco di sequenze inaspettate anima l'interstiziale.

The rammed earth construction reveals here its properties in the primitive form of the wall. The project develops the condition of being between two earth walls with the necessities of having a static system that allows a flexible use of space and light.

This flexibility answers to the different needs of the Sitterwerk with its varieties of programs coexisting on the same campus (production, exhibition, administration and housing).
A prefabricated hybrid module that combines earth and concrete is a constructive response that allows the composition of a dynamic facade coherent to the inner needs. The disposition of these modules has an analogy with the mesh of a fabric. The concrete component gives a clear hosting position for the beams. The proposed pavilion is the most simplified version of the system. The space has been freed of any intermediate floors and leaves all the height to the exposition of artworks.

4ème Prix ! Concours d'architecture sur présélection en collaboration avec Atelier Atlantico + Daniel Willi SA + Yves Pedrazzini + Jean-Claude Albertin

Établis au centre de Bulle, lieu identitaire, lieu de mémoires et de savoirs, le musée et la bibliothèque peinent à trouver leur place dans une ville en rapide transformation. Le manque d’espace et la configuration pavillonnaire d’un bâtiment centré sur lui-même, péjorent le rayonnement d’une institution locale qui mérite à l’évidence une renommée régionale et nationale.

Le jardin comme interface

La position du bâtiment assure maintenant la porosité de deux tissus urbains explicitement différents en créant de nouveaux cheminements à partir des anciennes voiries. Ils rétablissent une connexion urbaine et sociale longtemps oubliée. Au sein du nouveau système, la ville et la maison se font face sans chercher à s’imposer l’une à l’autre. Une scénographie se met en place et propose des relations urbaines au caractère sérendipe, les jardins estompent les limites entre le bâtiment et l’espace alentours. La bibliothèque et le musée étant autant l’objectif du visiteur qu’un prétexte à la flânerie.

Évolution d’une identité

Le projet propose d’intégrer les qualités actuelles et l’identité du bâtiment existant en le positionnant au centre d’un nouveau système ouvert. L’existant vient être complété et habillé d’une nouvelle façade. En englobant totalement le musée, celui-ci devient une bulle de narration au sein de la bibliothèque.

Mise en scène urbaine et spatiale

Le bâtiment est propice à l’étude, à la déambulation et à la méditation, seul ou en groupe, néanmoins il n’est pas pour autant enfermé sur lui-même : ses vastes ouvertures percées dans du béton clair donnent sur le monde, la ville, les gens qui ont confié à la direction du musée la tâche magnifique mais difficile de prendre soin de leur passé, en l’inscrivant dans un nouvel espace public. La bibliothèque n’est plus le coffre-fort aux façades élitaires, mais un système urbain qui intègre le bâtiment.

Flexibilité programmatique et curation

La périphérie immédiate du bâtiment, offre une troisième emprise aux valeurs sociales citoyennes, tandis que son centre devient un espace permettant une diversité de curation pour le musée ainsi qu’un espace de travail pendant les périodes de grande affluence.
Ainsi, la force de cette « maison » ancrée dans le passé et au service des pratiques actuelles réside dans la non-définition typologique. Elle lui permet de s’adapter à tout changement significatif, lié aussi à la disparition du livre objet et offre aux habitant-e-s la possibilité de bénéficier d’un contact fort et retrouvé entre la société et son environnement construit.

Fase finale - Concorso di architettura a procedura aperta - DUE DI DUE

La realizzazione di una scuola dell’infanzia per il nuovo comune di Breggia segue la direzione lanciata dal progetto della scuola elementare più di 40 anni fa: quello di raggruppare le diverse sedi della Valle di Muggio in un solo edificio.
Il progetto si colloca sul lato est della scuola elementare lasciando intatta la sua relazione con i preziosi spazi verdi già esistenti (soprattutto la bellissima distesa di fronte alle aule, spazio favorito dagli allievi).
Ad oggi la relazione tra il campo di basket e quello di calcio è ambigua e il grande spazio erboso a est della palestra non è utilizzato al meglio e quasi
mai per iniziativa degli allievi della scuola elementare. La posizione della nuova scuola dell’infanzia diventa dunque chiara quando risponde a questa problematica.
Il progetto identifica 3 punti chiave a livello del sito:
• Garantisce un facile accesso pedonale alla sede grazie a un portico
coperto ed un accesso carrozzabile per le consegne (specialmente la cucina). Questo senza compromettere il normale flusso della scuola elementare esistente.
• La vicinanza del nuovo refettorio alla scuola elementare e la sua autonomia da quella dell’infanzia senza però dividerlo dall’unità del gesto architettonico.
• La disposizione in linea seguendo la forma naturale dell’avvallamento
che struttura il sito e regola la relazione tra le due quote topografiche del campo di calcio e quello di basket. Questo permette di rafforzare la direzione visiva verso la valle di muggio specialmente la preziosa vista sul comune di Caneggio e della sua chiesa (Santa Maria Assunta).
Nella sua organizzazione interna:
• La scuola dell’infanzia, i suoi servizi ed il refettorio della scuola elementare
coabitano in simbiosi sotto lo stesso tetto senza però fare a meno della
propria indipendenza e autonomia.
• Le due sezioni della scuola dell’infanzia sono identiche grazie alla simmetria
su due piani e permettono il movimento graduale verso il parco secondo una
successione logica del programma nel sito.
• Essendo il più ampio e flessibile degli spazi del programma, la sala per
il movimento si situa come punto d’incontro al culmine delle due sezioni, permettendo con la sua generosità il suo possibile utilizzo come sala polivalente al di fuori degli orari scolastici.

Mention Honorable ! Concours d'architecture en collaboration avec Christophe Pittet et Sophie Tschumy

Le pavillon a été conçu comme un grand espace modulable avec une structure constituée de colonnes en pisé et de poutre en bois lamellé-collé.

Une construction stable et durable dans le temps, qui peut se renouveler dans son usage, a été préféré a une structure légère à la durée de vie plus courte. Tout en sachant que le pisé reste un matériau recyclable dans sa totalité en cas de démontage. La flexibilité et la neutralité calibrée de l’espace rendent possible la diversification et transformation des usages dans le temps. La structure qui accueil les cabinets médicaux est une construction en bois légère totalement autonome de la structure du pavillon. Elle fait office de séparateur entre les deux espaces principaux du pavillon. Les séparations suggérés de l’espace d’entraînement virtuel sont conçues de façons a laisser une certaine liberté aux différents fonctions technologiques comme bornes et écrans.
