The project is part of a larger urban program aimed at regenerating underprivileged neighborhoods in Northern Paris. The action plan developed in close cooperation between the city, the local associations and the landlord included new and refurbished low-rent housing, as well as studios for artists and musicians.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThree plots entrusted to Moussafir Architects were sited on two narrow parallel streets separated by a long, low-rise housing block; a private garden in its middle enabled visual interaction between the two parts of the project. Built on these three plots were nine residences and three artistsʼ studios. The project was shaped by an intention to stay in harmony with the neighborhoodʼs scale and density while maximizing space and daylight available to future residents. Standards established for social housing severely restrict the size of apartments, therefore the architects decided to differentiate interior volumes, creating an added spatial value, which subsequently led to increased amounts of natural light.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyPerfect alignment with existing buildings and identical façade treatment ensure contextual integration of the project, erasing the difference between the old and the new. Lime stucco echoes the texture of surrounding facades; most window openings have traditional proportions. Even the shutters are covered with the same kind of stucco, which makes the closed windows almost disappear on the facade.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe «commonplace» exterior is balanced by the singularity of living rooms. Each of the three buildings has one apartment per floor; each living room has a double (north-south) aspect. The staggered arrangement of day and night zones allows for the difference in ceiling heights: 3,40 m for the living room versus 2,60 for the bedroom. Blending the buildingsʼ outer envelopes with the surroundings provides a proper background for highlighting each individual residence with a large bow window in iroko wood that frames the increased height of living rooms. The principle equally applies to apartments and atéliers, emphasizing the fact that nowadays home and workspace tend to merge.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSocial and Cultural Center in Novelda Av. – Elche / Julio Sagasta + Fuster ArquitectosSelected ProjectsPlinth House / LAND ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rue du N, 75018 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

James Harden: ‘You don’t have to like watching me play, but I know a lot of people that do’

first_img“That’s fine, you don’t have to like watching me play,” Harden told ESPN on Saturday. “But I know a lot of people that do.”Harden went on to say he “appreciate(s) the haters” and uses the negative talk as motivation.  Related News NBA wrap: Paul George scores 45 as Thunder come back to beat Rockets “They motivate me to be better than I was the year before. That’s what it’s about,” Harden explained. “You’re always going to have somebody who doesn’t like what you do or downplays what you do or can’t relate to you. Which is fine. Nothing against them, but that’s a part of life.”I don’t have nothing to prove to anybody. When you know you’re comfortable within your own self, and you go out there and be yourself every single night and every single day, that’s pretty cool.”Harden’s teammates acknowledged the 29-year-old guard’s recent performances have been nothing short of impressive as he now stands at 29 straight games of 30-plus-points after the Rockets’ 117-112 victory over the Thunder on Saturday. James Harden has faced scrutiny from fans as he continues to climb the ranks in the NBA and produce one of his best season’s yet.The seven-time All-Star and defending MVP is fully aware of his haters, but he has one simple message for the critics. “Man, just respect what he’s doing,” Chris Paul said of the criticism Harden receives. “Guys who play in this league know how hard that is to do that night in and night out. … If everybody else could do it, they would.”Austin Rivers added: “I’m surprised that people don’t like watching him play. … We live in a day and age where everybody likes one-on-one moves, crossovers — I mean, you would think people would love watching him.”Harden is making a strong run to bring home another MVP this season as he has led the Rockets to a 32-23 record, averaging 36.6 points and 7.8 assists on 44.2 percent shooting.last_img read more
