The winning proposal for the multi-sports complex in the city of Antony, France responds to the strong political will of a new urban ambition for the neighborhood. The context is heterogeneous linear collective housing on one side and unique botanical heritage of the Park on the other. Designed by Archi5 + Tecnova Architecture, this project includes a theme for each function including gathering, meeting, sports activities, and events. This becomes evident in all aspects of the building at all levels. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Completed in September 2011, the reconstruction and expansion of the Lamoricière School, designed by archi5 upon winning a competition for their concept, is a landmark in the neighborhood, as well as a meeting and exchange place open to its environment. The building is subtly inserted in the existing surroundings while affirming its public facility characteristics. The decomposition of the volume allows it to include the new equipment in the extension of the kindergarten template and to respect the scale of neighboring buildings.
French firm archi5 has been announced winner of the International Master Plan Competition for Stockholm’s Nya Årstafältet neighborhood. Archi5′s winning proposal ‘Arkipelag’ has been a collaboration with landscape architect Michel Desvigne.
