Storehouse City Münster by scape. Scape Landschaftsarchitekten: The site of the former Army Pension office is very important for the history of the German military in the second World War (1939 – 1945).
The largely, central located and today considered as a conservation area was a place for storage, processing and distribution of food and fodder for the garrisons from all over Northwestern Germany during the war. From the huge central bakery building up to 30,000 breads were distributed per day. During the second half of the 20th century, the Storehouse City was the place for the British occupying forces. Nowadays the historical storehouses have been transformed into modern office buildings and a famous location for events and communication.The tasks involved in the redesign of the public space were to consider the Storehouse City as an important place for remembrance and develop a high quality area for the employees and the public.

Rural surrounding, scale and appearance of the buildings in the neighborhood. The surrounding buildings are classic buildings of the "agrary industry“, farm houses which have been extended by new building parts step by step with the needs of the owners (picture attached). Therefore we have a mix of classical materials of this area (plaster, bricks, wood) and a mix of different rooftop - orientations and angles.
All these contextual issues were somehow processed in our work: - Reflecting the scale by dividing the needed volume of the extensions to 5 smaller partitions. - Reflecting the materials by the use of plastered brick-walls (existing building) and wood (extension). - Roof landscape reflecting the different roof angels in the surrounding. Chongqing Taoyuanju Community Center / Vector Architects. Architects: Vector Architects Location: Chongqing, Chongqing, China Architect in Charge: Gong Dong Area: 10000.0 sqm Project Year: 2015 Photographs: Su Shengliang, Xiaokai Ma Structural Consultant: Congzhen Xiao LDI: China Ctdi Engineering Corporation From the architect.
The community center is located in the mountains of Taoyuan Park in Chongqing. The starting point is attempting to merge new building outline with the existing wavy topography. Instead of building an “object” in the field, we hope to create an imagery of fusing architectural form and hilly landscape together. The relationship of in and out of architecture spaces is an important aspect in our design as well.

Ortuella. Vizcaya. AAVP : L’atelier. Publié le mercredi 23 octobre 2013 A Gournay-en-Bray, l’agence Vincent Parreira Atelier d’architecture a requalifié un site occupé par l’ancienne usine de confection Damau.
Nommé "l’Atelier", ce nouveau projet accueille un espace culturel comprenant une médiathèque et une maison des associations culturelles. Les deux enjeux de cette opération étaient d’imaginer un nouveau bâtiment contemporain et d’assurer la lisibilité entre le projet et le bâti existant. Pour conserver l’authenticité du lieu et son histoire, les architectes ont préservé les murs d’enceinte en pierre, et construit un bâtiment relié à l’existant par un hall. Le choix minutieux des matériaux comme l’ardoise violine, la résille de cuivre et le mélèze s’accordent avec le patrimoine local et provoquent des points de vue et des perspectives inattendues.
