On the banks of Bordeaux, a new way of living together by Maud Caubet Architects


In the 40 Journaux district of Bordeaux and in the heart of a dune landscape, the Noème operation offers a peaceful path in the pine forest opening towards the banks of the lake. On block 6, the project offers housing that blends into their environment.

 
The choice of an architecture using natural and sustainable materials stems from a desire for unity for this building. Treated with tinted in the mass raw concrete and a sandblasting finish, allowing the irregularities of the concrete to appear, the propject recalls Bordeaux stone ‘s specificities. A way of emphasizing the qualities of a rational architecture put at the service of uses.

 
Maud Caubet emphasizes: “For this project led by Covivio, we wanted to restore a warm and authentic materiality in response to the various natural landscapes surrounding the project, so as to encourage encounters through the experience of a rich and rare setting, embellished with roof gardens, vegetable gardens and large terraces”.

Maud caubet architects brings the former ONF headquarters back to life


 

In the heart of the 12th district of Paris, next to the Sorbonne Nouvelle, the Racine project is transforming the former headquarters of the ONF (Office National des Forêts) and will bring new life to the neighbourhood at the end of 2023. The singular-looking building will be completely refurbished and will see its roof topped with a glass greenhouse as an extension to the sky.

Resulting from an enriching dialog between public, private and local stakeholders, the Racine project offers a slenderer silhouette as well as a mix of uses at the service of its inhabitants, users and of the neighbourhood.

 

Open to the city and its changing needs, the program integrates third places that can adapt to multiple possibilities and integrates different forms of urban nature on each of its floors. Vegetable gardens, agricultural greenhouses, living spaces and several levels of gardens will thus take place throughout the floors.

 

“For this project carried out with Alderan, we wanted to offer a useful refurbishment, a renovation which can be respectful of the 70’s architectural heritage, in line with the current and future needs and uses of this place. Our aim was to reveal the site and its potential to invent the future of the city through a happy architecture proposal. Bioclimatic, technical, and responsible architecture takes place in this project without ever being felt as such, to let people project in experience and poetry. Racine’s structure takes root on the ground and develops like a sculpture towards the sky through the glass extension of the greenhouse” explains Maud Caubet.

Report of the Journal du Grand Paris on Nouvelle Vague


 

Last Friday, Jacques Paquier, editor-in-chief of Le Journal du Grand Paris, visited our recently delivered Nouvelle Vague programme. Maud Caubet introduced the visit to this programme combining social housing, home buying, nursery and trades: “It is essential to first and foremost think of a programme by and for the quality of uses offered to those who will live and experience the proposed architecture. The architectural gesture without the quality of life(s) and use is of no use, in our opinion. This everyday comfort is largely due to the care taken in designing the outdoor spaces for each of the inhabitants, whatever form they may have”.

 

The outcome is this in-depth article, with a beautiful signature, reflecting this beautiful project so well.

What are the health crisis impacts on architectural agencies ?


 

A few weeks ago, Maud Caubet answered Tema.archi’s questions on the daily life of architecture agencies in the midst of a health crisis. Be attentive to everyone, let the choice  between on-site or remote work, do not forget the importance of human contact, remain optimistic and kind… these were the keys shared by Maud Caubet during this interview. The activity continues and even if it is not ideal, “architects know how to do it”!

Renewal of the Tour Initiale at La Défense


 

Singular amongst its little sisters, the first tower built at La Défense has been starting a new life for a few days now. We are proud to have completed the refurbishment of the Tour Initiale, which is already hosting new occupants. Its refurbishment has been thought to suit  the city of tomorrow : the tower combines mixed-uses with multipurpose spaces, places for living, socialising, culinary and artistic rediscovery, relaxation and work. We worked for the long term with noble, long-lasting, quality materials, far from fashion trends. A tribute to the spirit of the place instilled by Jean Prouvé, through the reuse of vintage furniture, we wish to open art and make it accessible to all.
We are thus delivering a tower that will remain timeless, graceful and definitely Parisian.
