This auditorium is a new symbol in the suburban city of Bondy. Suburbs have built an empire of shopping malls, individual houses and parking lots. Located on the outskirts of Paris, Bondy has a loose and low-density urban fabric. The architecture of the building plays with the aesthetics of the hangar : a very simple square plan and an undulated metal skin. Unlike a traditional hangar, it opens to its context through a series of arches, letting in natural light and views. Inside, every space has a specific acoustics related to its function and its ambiance.

The restructuration and expansion of the helicopter base for civil security in Nimes Garons is a relatively complex project, under two major constraints. Firstly the fact that the work should be done without interrupting the activity of helicopter maintenance requiring extreme rigor in the areas of site partitioning and scheduling of work, then look at environmental issues classified BBC and Very High Energy Performance (TPHE). To this is added disparate entities built into the ground that need the introduction of a first coherent site.

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.

The rundown building housing Nièvre’s departmental archives has undergone rehabilitation and been provided with an extension. Two new buildings are positioned in parallel with the existing rehabilitated building.
The first, giving onto the street, is slightly stepped back to create an esplanade marking the public nature of this institution. The façades are formed from screen-printed glass panels with different gradations and levels of transparency that create reflections and random vibrations.

We wished to create a cluster of houses that is both a privacy area and a smoothed porous space, either from the outside or from the inside of the block.
A service road irrigates the hearth of the cluster. It is marked out on both sides by vegetated areas.
The project is a hybrid space, between a square and a garden.

Block 32 occupies a strategic position in the vast programme to renovate the Duchère neighbourhood, in Lyon. The OPAC du Rhône housing association has produced a building which incorporates 33 social rental housing units, 1,500m2 of office space dedicated to health-related activities, and has retail space throughout the ground floor. Its central location, at the crossroads between the new Abbé Pierre square and the east / west boulevard, means it is highly visible and its proximity to the athletics hall imposes the need for a resoundingly urban attitude.

Beached on the estuary’s banks, where fresh waters meet rising tides, the D house cultivates contradictions. It can be either a shelter or a reception place, an intimate space or the place for partying. It is driven by opposite currents and its character varies depending on its occupants’ moods and natural cycles.

The project context is based on experimentation, and initiated by the public housing council of Reims (HLM – l’Effort Rémois) – in a subdivision of 63 lots with heavy economic constraints.
La Maison-vague uses vegetation for its architectural and environmental qualities, particularly in terms of thermal insulation. A fully vegetated shell protects the interior from summer heat and winter cold. The basic form is to encapsulate within a single mat of vegetation that undulates and floats above the ground, at sitting height (the rim surrounding the wooden shelf is kind of a big bench). The traditional relationship between house and garden is changed, disturbed even, the project encompasses both in the same construction.

The site hosting Chennevières-sur-Marne’s future archery centre is located in an area of low popluation density of high vegetation quality. This vegetation gives the site the feel of a town park, which we felt it was important to retain.
The outer training field is treated as an integral part of the building. Its setting on the site is justified by the need to direct the shooting and the outdoor targets towards the north. The outdoor layouts, including a vegetated mound, are designed as an extension of the building.

The project of the student residence integrates the urban fabric of La Chapelle’s district in Paris and acquires an important role in its evolution.
The plot is situated at the crossroad between rue Philippe de Girard and rue Pajol in the 18th arrondissement, close to the ZAC of Pajol, area that hosts an ambitious redevelopment of former railway yards, where social, cultural and sports amenities are currently being created.
