The volumes of this office project are optimzied to compensate small openings present in the building. A set of partitions and the existing false ceiling were put down to reveal an elegant metal structure. A glazed mezzanine overlook the double height of the main room. Above heads, the soft light of a weft of neon arranged in a row comes to hide the set of ducts and technical networks. The furniture is composed by plates of black filmed plywood. the cuts reveal the bare clear wood which reminds of the lines of the light of the ceiling. A mineral pattern carpet drawn on measure comes to unify the reading of this atypical space.
The series of assemblies furniture is built on fixed geometries with variable contents. Furniture elements consistently exhibit a resin part with is coupled with other materials. By different combinations of hues, opacities and finishes, each part compose a furniture of choice. Thus, objects can be assembled and reassembled to a changing environment and needs. The resin used is an acrylic base with an inorganic filling material. It is a solid material, homogeneous and non-porous composed of a third acrylic resin (PMMA) and of two-third pf aluminium hydroxyde of natural minerals produced from bauxite. Various types of metal and wood species can complete assemblies according to the objects. Dimensions: 75 cm ø , height: 45cm Materials: Resin 12mm, glass, marble Price: On demand
The appointed project BERGMAL is a modern and functional refuge which fades invariably in each environments it occupies. It draws its energy and its raw materials from the nature of the grounds surrounding it. That is why we wanted to give it this name which means “ the echo “ and could be translated by “ the language of rocks “ and still “ the language of mountains “.
The project allies esthetics of minimal architecture to the efficiency of ancestral processes to protect itself from the harshness of the climate. To answer the constraints of construction , transportation and adaptability, we thought the cabin as of an assembly of two complementary layers: A first structural layer is composed of transportable light concrete panels by helicopter. They are can be assemble on-site or as bigger parts before transportation so as to form a
hull put on feet. Feets are adaptable to the slope of any terrain. The panel of light concrete (75 Kg/m2) presents great properties in term of mechanical resistance and fire resistance, as well as a high level in term of heat and acoustic insulation. This shell is then covered by wired mesh compartments called gabion. They are very light, strong, easy to implement and readily adaptable . The goal is to fill them with rock material and substrate taken in situ. Because of the nature of their material and greater or lesser presence of cavities , they provide micro- habitats and natural microclimates conducive to native biodiversity . Then, the shelter merge with surrounding mineral and plants to limit its visual impact. This second skin gives good thermal inertia that changes with the environment in the manner of a camouflage.
The internal space was optimized to be at the same time functional, esthetical and spacious.
He allows to receive 10 people in a comfortable and honorable way and includes a sleeping zone, arrangements, a table, a kitchen, toilets, a bathroom and the technical elements necessary for the smooth running of the refuge. The raw concrete of the internal walls make itself modest in front of observable landscapes through the wide glass windows.
Because of the high and relatively homogeneous distribution of many hot springs , the shelter incorporates a geothermal system of heat recovery and electricity production. Water is also captured in the basement and made drinkable by filters . Wastewater is evacuated and treated by a septic tank .
The complementarity of these devices gives allow the selter to be self-sufficient and can be installed all around on the island.
Through this project , we unconsciously compared tailoring and architectural practice . Everything start from materials: skin, fabric, leather. Then staging: space, light and movement. So we designed the desk at the center of each piece combining the dressing room , the work plan to present materials and adjust cutting and the storage space. They stage the tailor’s work and revealed when the curtain rises , the man in his new suit .

Specifications required to hold together different programs within a 240m2 plateau. The core concentrates the access and technical parts while the workspaces are placed on the peripheric border, closer to natural light. Partitioning is reduced to its bare minimum. Designed as a single space , the ground is fully covered with cork which unify the space reading and improve sound quality . Flexible walls in white PVC are mount on a single rail to create new bounderies as needed. Each furniture is custom designed .
The swing LUNE is thought as a day bed.It is welcoming and protective, sober and elegant. The concentric circles which compose it, call up the movement, invite in the rocking and echo the surf of waves on the beach.
The seat is maintained in its vertical position with kneecaps tightened by springs. The body of the user destabilizes this system and comes to create the balance (like a rocking chair).
The pure geometrical forms of the structure allow to optimize the used quantities of materials. Steel can be recycled as well as cotton with is biodegradable. The pillow and the canvas are waterproof and replaceable.
The restaurant organization is based around a bent bar. The spacial organization optimizes space to free up a maximum number of seats. The gable wall was free of any functional attributs to be coated only with mirrors. Their bevel cuts follows a strict branching logic that breaks the reflections in rising. In the thickness of the wood, verticals panels of the bar are playing the same graphic game. Finally, different shades of blues smoothes the atmosphere of the place.
HERMES asked us to illustrate their designers ideas by creating a 3D model. With this tool, they were able to chose finitions and every aspect of the furniture they were designing (lighting, colors, materials)
The spatial device echoes with modesty to urban organization of the city of New York. The proportions of the orthogonal grid have been implemented across the furniture to generate fixed length and width. Only heights vary, the image of this city that unfolds vertically like Rem Koolhaas emphasizes in Delirious New York, "Each block is an island in wich architectural folklore could be experimented". Within the HUG gallery, we find ourselves thus face two spheres. On the one hand, a glimpse of the life contained in a frame, a format. On the other hand, a city set by a frame which gives her measurement limits. We would therefore be tempted to point to a correspondence between the photographic work and architecture. The photographic support remains inert but refers to a movement, an action. Similarly, stones bricks mounted above a building keep them in an inertia, a tension inevitably maintained by gravity. By extrapolation, it is interesting to note that this analogy can be read at different scales. The photographic frame is the container, the boundary of the image. It is potentially the measurement area in which the architecture grows. The moment fixed by photography would be compared with a building, embodying a lifestyle. Thus, we might ask ourselves about the ubiquity of the vacuum, one left hanging between the photographs and the one cut streets of the city. Is it not all that the lens has not picked up, the negative envelope of the photographic act? The space is built where the mental image of a city, of his life and his time?
The design focuses on the integration of the living space by organizing the space through the utilisation of distinct materials. The old parquet gathers the life zones. The terrazzo organizes technical areas such as the kitchen, closets and toilets. The ceramic separate wet places from the rest of the apartment. The furniture is designed as a lightweight structure.
de plus abstrait que le reflet d'un miroir ? Quoi de plus discret que sa présence dans une pièce ? Quoi de plus réel lorsqu'on y fait face ? Quoi de plus inquiétant que les déformations qu'il renvoie ? Quoi de plus onirique que la mise en abîme qu'il suggère ? Quoi de plus spatial que le reflet qu'il génère ?
s'est établie dans un ancien atelier de photographie. Nous avons fait le choix de mettre à nu les murs et plafonds. La révélation des strates d'enduits, de peintures et papiers peints composent un tableau temporel et témoignent de l'histoire du lieu. Les éléments techniques, les passes-câbles et les tuyaux en cuivre encadrent cette composition. L'ensemble est mis en lumière par une ligne haute de néons ainsi qu'une grande façade vitrée donnant sur la rue. Le mobilier est fait à partir de bois teinté dans la masse de couleur bleue (Valchromat de 3cm d'épaisseur). Il est décliné en huit bureaux, un banc et une table de réunion pliante. La cuisine intègre des rangements et une crédence toute hauteur qui assoit avec autorité la dominante bleue de l'espace.
série de mobilier nommée Assemblages, se construit sur des géométries fixes à matières variables. Les éléments de mobilier présentent systématiquement une base de résine à laquelle sont couplés d'autres matériaux. Par un jeu d'assemblage de teintes, d'opacités et de finitions, chacun peut composer le mobilier de son choix. Ainsi, les objets peuvent être assemblés et recomposés aux grè de l'évolution de l'environnement et des envies. La résine employée est à base d'acrylique avec un matériel de remplissage minéral. C'est un matériau massif, homogène et non poreux composé d'un tiers de résines acryliques (PMMA) et de deux tiers d'hydroxyde d'aluminium de minéraux naturels, produit à partir de bauxite. Divers types de métaux et essences de bois peuvent compléter les assemblages selon les objets. Ce luminaire présente un plan en croix. Son aspect monumental lui donne une présence autoritaire, de jour comme de nuit. Prix et finitions sur demande. +
Transparence through matériality. How to integrate an executive office, a meeting room and ten desks in an initial volume of 100 m2. The master plan of the four large tables overcomes the programmatic limitations by extending themselves through a transparent partition. We choose to implement flexible PVC panels which are commonly used for industrial insolations in cold rooms or clean rooms. Cut into 220cm elements, PVC is pinched between cleats and stretched vertically. Its 5mm thickness gives it a very good sound absorption and an outstanding resistance to tearing. Thus we were able to keep spacial and light qualities of the space by composing with an innovative and transparent partition, 6 times cheaper than glass walls.
GRAMME suggest the outlines of both material and graphical universe of the gluten-free concept restaurant: NOUS. GRAMME chose noble materials such as galvanized steel for its nuances, its freshness and its unique way wich it has to delute reflexion. It dresses with elegance the counter and the external envelope of the toilet. The birch wood of the table was chosen for sharpness of its veinnings. A completely glazed facade brings a natural brightness and invites everyone to cross the threshold.
consiste en la surélévation d'un étage de cette maison de ville de la Butte aux Cailles.
Chaque étage est parcouru par la verticalité des escaliers et le vide qu'ils génèrent.
Chaque étage est ponctué d'éléments de mobiliers qui organisent l'espace.
Les scénarios quotidiens qu'ils suggèrent définissent l'idée d'habiter un lieu, de le vivre.
Ainsi, des usages libres naissent de la mise en relation des espaces intimes, des espaces de vie, des espaces de travail et de réception.
The apartment was libereted by all its bindings and unnecessary elements to to create a single room. Sober and bright, it is punctuated with functional elements which give its life without congealing it. The master bedroom takes place at the heart of the display and fades behind a polycarbonate wall. The abstraction of the forms which we guess on both sides depicts every day a different picture, changing throught seasons, colors and movements.
ENTROPIA results from the strict application of a five point protocol The first one, called pattern, consists in identifying a material environment convenient to the development of architecture. The second one: the domain, given by the negative configurations of the pattern, bounds the perimeter. Then: the entity establishes the basic volume of the object. It is defined by a neutral transposition of the width of the domain to height. The syntax settles the organization of the basic volumes. Finally, the track corresponds as the resultant architecture of these previous four operations wich where invested and corrupted by the individuals. By following point by point the statements of the protocol, a 10 meters wide, 10 meters high disk of 3.6 km of circumference was generated. The generated structure allows an equal distribution of light, spaces, and access. No dominating architectural element favors a use rather than an other one. We then suggested some possible occupations, by positioning us, not as architects, but as individuals who would appropriate intuitively this structural skeleton. These interventions are the product of the confrontation between this building and the uses suggested by the direct environment and the landscape.
We see architecture as a system, complementary of the territory it organizes, and generator of usages. The meeting point then becomes multiple. An orthogonal framework defines the monomaterial steles which are the essential landmarks for the festival-goers. Those 21 vertical icons each signal a specific activity at their base. The steles are the incarnation of the concept of sustainable development. Monomaterials and easy to implement, they are perennial and inexpensive. Square base of 60x60 cm and between 45 cm and 7.5 meters high, the alignment of stelae reveal the topography and creates multiplies uses. Sustainable also because this project is an invitation to wandering in the TØYENPARKEN all year long, to discover those columns and the activities they offer ; A library, a water playground, an inaccessible garden, an observation point, swings, planters bio, a photo booth and many other. The reception center/desk offers a consult-free documentation about the park planning and sustainable development. Finally, the architecture fades to showcase the life it stimulates at its heart.
Sharing Device Europan Architecture Competition 2013
Competition To be able to be part of an ersatz of freedom, people must be able to despoil his cultural contaminations and his social corruption, imagine himself in his ab- origene state, at the zero point.To do this, each individual must solve how to get lost outside the bonderies of the moderne society. In this process, he will begin his journey. It’s only during his wanderings;“the strength of wanderings, is allowing me to live a while and in the present” R.Depardon that the individual will be willing to accept his new condition as a free man, he will be pleased to get rid of all the objects connecting him to the society and to enjoy what is real. Created to compromise the modern man, this device is a space dedicated to abolish every king of control, beeing laboratories of the creation of the primitiv man. Those islands of absolut freedom are utopic worlds where man can emancipate from objects tyranny.
Diplômés de l’Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture, Romain Freychet et Antoine Prax ont uni leurs compétences pour fonder une agence pluridisciplinaire nommée GRAMME. Convoquant leurs expériences dans les domaines de la scénographie, du design, de l’imagerie 3D et de l’architecture, leur travail se construit à travers l’interaction perpétuelle de ces disciplines. Soucieux de concevoir chaque projet comme une pièce unique, l’atelier GRAMME s’attache à dessiner les contours matériels des besoins de chacun de ses clients. Ils envisagent le métier d’architecte comme étant fondé sur la relation et l’échange avec la maîtrise d’ouvrage, sur le détail et le soucis d’apporter des solutions sur mesure dans le développement d’un style novateur, nerveux et précis. Le véritable luxe réside pour eux dans la sobriété, le silence des compositions et la tension des anachronismes.
Graduated of the Special School of Architecture, Romain Freychet and Antoine Prax united their skills to establish a multidisciplinary studio named GRAMME. Summoning their experiences in scenography, design, 3D imaging and architecture, their work builds itself through the perpetual interaction of these disciplines. Worried of creating every project as a unique piece, GRAMME attempts to draw the material outlines and the needs of each projects. They envisage the architect’s job as being based on the relation and the exchange with the project ownership, on the detail and concerns, to bring custom-made solutions in the development of an innovative, nervous and precise style.
