A number of scale 1 implementations have been completed.
Some views above.
On the road to Gravenoire
Tectoniques is the winner of a competition to realize social housing in Royat (above Clermont-Ferrand) for Logidome.
The project is formed by two buildings turned towards a natural afforestation.
A topographic break, witness of the past of the site's former career, is preserved and valued.
Dance and music school in Charbonnières les Bains
The office have been selected as winner of the competition for the construction of a dance and music school in Charbonnières les Bains.
The project consists of two superimposed architectural pieces.
The first is mineral-inspired. It is built with site concrete, follows the uneven terrain, and presents a perennial material on the public space.
The lower ground floor houses the Maison des Jeunes. The upper ground floor houses Reception and Dance functions of the Maison des Arts.
Upstairs, the second architectural piece is lighter, built in wood, and hosts music school.
It is dressed with a metallic bronze texture which deliberately contrasts with the relative massiveness of the base described above.
The silhouette of this « instrument", placed on the roof, is constituted by a set of folds.
It forms a rich and varied epannelage, which changes its pace according to the points of view and the lights that it captures.
A pine forest inhabited for a neighborhood center
Tectoniques has won, with Atelier Mediterranéen, the design competition for new public buildings of the Gavotte.
Located in Les Pennes-Mirabeau, north of Marseille, the operation program includes two schools, a multi-reception center, an inter-generational restaurant and a multi-functional public facility: the Idea Box.
This set creates a neighborhood center.
The site is formed by an east-west oriented valley with a strong topography (height difference of 14 meters between the top and bottom of the project site).
It is surrounded by a predominantly residential and diffuse urban planning, combined with a fairly generous vegetation with some great Aleppo pines.
We opted for a relatively homogeneous architectural style and a strong interaction between the landscape and the built space.
The choice of the plant species is dictated by the geography of the place, and was inspired by the spontaneous Mediterranean vegetation found in the valley.
The project is installed on pedestals dressed in white limestone rocks. He uses wooden slabs (cross laminated timber) and biobased materials (adobe brick) assembled in a dry construction process.
Work in progress
In Biodiversarium Banyuls, The decoration of aquariums are being manufactured.
They are designed by the ITF office studies under the direction of Pascal Roman, head of Aragon Aquariologie Laboratory, and are made by the company Coutant Aquariums in La Rochelle.
The acclimatization period is scheduled for 4 months between December and April 2017.
An industrial building in rammed earth
Tectoniques has won a competition organized by ENEDIS for designing a new generation substation.
The project is built in rammed earth. Our approach echoes the international operation TERRALYON2016 and rallies on
alternative modes of construction and eco-friendly.
We worked with Exndo Studio / Eco-designers and with the team CRAterre, earth building specialist.
Tectoniques performs for Est Metropole Habitat a social housing operation, Rue Meunier in Villeurbanne.
The building permit is being prepared.
Work in progress

Running projects at the agengy
Eco-neighbourhood, Les Rives d'Allier, Vichy
Vichy, Allier, France
Given its scope and strategic location on the banks of the Allier river, and close to the centre of Vichy, the development of the area around the Darragon stadium represents a unique opportunity to develop a new neighbourhood.
Our project provides a familiar ambiance, with habitat programmes, and an "urban" presence, with the stadium and its new multifunctional facilities, which is a major feature of the new cityscape. Public amenities, activities, shops and services contribute to diversity, and respond to the expectations of the local people, but also the needs of current and future economic actors. The urbanisation programme, its dialogue with the existing fabric of the city and the extraordinary landscaping potential of the site constitute an integrated instrument for the enhancement and integration of the area. The proposed types of construction and public space are the result of a far-reaching, sustainable urbanistic and architectural approach. With its bioclimatic aspects, environmental performance, urban ecology, social life, equilibrium and cultural approach, this is an all-embracing approach centred on quality of life and urbanistic dynamism.
