Gymnasium Hacine Cherifi / Rillieux La Pape / Lauréat WAN Wood Award 2015
The Hacine Cherifi gymnasium (1) forms part of the same development as the Paul Chevallier schools complex, another Tectoniques project for the town of Rillieux-La-Pape (69).
Next to the schools with their pleated, green roofs, its size makes it an imposing, yet silent, neighbour.
The building houses two sports halls and support services over a total surface area of 2,500 m2 with internal ceiling heights of 9 and 12 metres.
Faithful to the agency's values, the architecture uses a mixed wood/concrete structure without pretence or artifice, the wooden components being largely prefabricated.
The main structure is formed from a series of portal frames. These are composed of glue laminated spaced columns and beams with a span of 34 metres. The insulation consists of boxes filled straw.

Michelin's Commercial Departement
The new France Michelin's Commercial Departement of the tyres brand is based in its CATAROUX site of Clermond-Ferrand.
In front of the big scale of the industrial urban context, we propose to limit the project's footprint, to free the ground et create a piece of landscape.
It introduces nature in the heart of MICHELIN activity, as a vector of identity and of an ethical an responsible corporate culture.
Unfortunately, the formal sobriety of the project didn't know how to convince the client.

Social housing units
Mermoz district of Lyon / France
Tectoniques was awarded the contract for the construction of the 52 apartments in the Mermoz integrated development zone, for Grand Lyon Habitat.
The project is an urban mediator. Though dense, it forms an open, generous, shared urban ecosystem.
It sits harmoniously within the larger context of renewal for the Mermoz district.
This project brings together a simple morphology with a thoughtful, qualitative approach to the circulation of the spaces associated with housing developments.
The facades are "habitable", while the outer spaces are both practical and intimate.
