Municipal Health Building

This building was part of a retrofit R&D program in order to create a stimulating and comfortable working environment.
I was never able to experience it in real life, but the redesign should definately be a FEELGOODBUILDING
Maison La Roche
This is a transitional space between the dark staircase space and the room full of light it is leading to. The change of illumination level in the two space is done subtly by introducing natural light to inside from windows - they are arranged to posses full range of the wall in a horizontal manner that well frame the trees outside. The space is generous as a transitional one for stairs, as it is big enough for good natural ventilation and leaves you a comfortable place to stand next to the window and look to the outside view. The windows, dived into several operable ones, provide the possibility to control temperature and ventilation speed in different situations. The not so beautiful heater, well hidden in the shadow, also leaves the outside view the major role in this space.
