Built in raw earth brick

Source Post / PSEM Tolbiac for RTE, Rue du Moulinet in Paris, is built of earth..
For this project, the terracotta brick and the mud brick write a score in duet.
Terracotta brick does not fear aggression or water and is used in basement and in erosion control lines.
It protects the mud brick, the majority, implemented in the best possible conditions and for the sake of sustainability.
The extrusion work of terracotta bricks completes the polychomy with a set of bas-reliefs that shade the facade dynamically.
Although it is not really, originally, a Parisian material, the brick is part of Parisian history: first of modest and cheap connotation it is mainly used in industrial buildings, social housing (HBM) before expanding to other programs and acquiring nobility.
The swimming pool of the Butte aux Cailles, architect Louis Bonnier near the site is a reference on this constructive mode.

Housing Prize of the Academy of Architecture and the National Council of the Order of Architects

The Academy of Architecture and the National Council of the Order of Architects have awarded us the Housing Award 2018.
We are proud to receive this award on the practices of our group of architects and engineers around housing.
The housing design is indeed strategic for all subjects that cross our society but it is placed under high constraints.
It is difficult today to build quality housing and architects must resist not to be simple facade decorators.

Offices for the headquarters of Régilait

Tectoniques has just delivered the first tranche of the headquarters of the company Régilait in Saône et Loire.
The project is built in wood with a valuation of local materials (wood material of Beaujolais).
Workspaces respect an intermediate typology, both open and closed.
It is open visually and preserves a continuous landscape, especially when standing.
At the same time, it is closed and cut by carpentry and glazed units
that form independent alcoves and isolate sitting workstations.
