Progress images of MMG Workshop. Collaboration between 3bd architects Corenka and MetalCo with upgrade project at Kinsevere mine lubumbashi, DRC.
3bd, as project architects, complete two design options of a Petrol Station for a private client in Lubumbashi, DRC. The development includes fuel areas, car wash, general grocery shop, cafe and a bank.
3bd, as project architects, complete the outline design for a new multi-purpose Hall and Classroom for Lycée Français Blaise Pascal School in Lubumbashi, DRC. The proposal is designed to sit comfortably in the surrounding landscape.
The large sliding doors open onto the existing basketball court whilst the classroom block opens onto a new covered terrace connecting to the existing children's play area, walkways and classrooms behind.
3bd Architects have been appointed to manage the refurbishment of two town houses and four apartments within a 350 year old listed building in Shepton Mallet, nr Bristol. The works will include the restoration of many historic features neglected by the previous owners and occupants.
In developing the scheme, the building had to be split into 4 levels and 4 zones to allow for the physical separation required for security and function.
MASSING STRATEGY ADJACENT
The new courtyard allowed us to bring natural light into the basement areas and the sculpted landscape allowed the building mass to blend into the surrounding context whilst maintaining views across to the Cathedral and existing Governor’s residence.
With the program and function in mind, we have allowed for playfulness in the sizes of perforations in the building facade to allow light and transparency into the appropriate spaces.
It will also soften, lighten and break up what appears to be a monolithic structure. Panoramic views towards the zoological gardens are maximised on the upper floors.
The natural perforated copper cladding will age gracefully next to the composite perforated cladding. To give further aesthetic quality, the patterns will be developed in collaboration with local artists. This will result in a constantly changing appearance of the panels on the facade depending on the angle, intensity and colour of the daylight playing on them.
