Hondelatte Laporte Architectes completed the design for The Giraffe childcare center, a 60 bed childcare center and 20 bed day nursery located in Boulogne-Billancourt, a suburban area of Paris. The objective of the architects was to animate the urban landscape by using a child’s imagination, thus resulting into an unusual building, seemingly supported by wild animals, such as a yellow giraffe which appears to be eating the leaves of the surrounding trees, a polar bear and a family of ladybirds.

The project is an original mix of modern architecture and storytelling: “The facades of the building are made out of white corrugated iron that provides a minimal background to the wild animal sculptures. The building changes its identity and becomes a landscape in its own right, a metaphor for the urban jungle. The animals and the trees link the building to nature and motion“. The Giraffe childcare center was awarded the green “zéro Energie Effinergie” label for its sustainable features.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
