Ecological Tricycle

Paris
France

Copyright LEO LESCOP - ENSAD / Art & Build Architect

Art&Build was asked by a re-employment association to design a tricycle to be operated as a street food point of sale.
The practices' response to the brief was not only to require that food sold required little or no packaging, but also that the vehicle itself should be made of recyclable materials.
In response to the requirement for lightness, the design refers to the comforting image of an open basket, an ancient street vending tradition.

Degroof Bank HQ & Agency

This building was created between two existing constructions. On one side a former town house in the neoclassical style, the last vestiges of the former residential Léopold Quarter and now home to the Bank Degroof. On the other side, an office building of modernistic style. In harmony with the former in terms of its proportions, and with a facade based on the principle of the golden rectangle, the new building adopts a contemporary language - in metal and glass - that contrasts with the context and lends interest to the sequence.
