Behind its classic Parisian facade, the Enfants Riches Déprimés flagship store by Didier Faustino blurs the codes to offer a cold space, without affect. Inspired by the bunker and the bank vault, it is spread over two levels, all in lines, full and void, mixing marble and steel. (more…)

Observing Earth and its territories through a radically new architectural, sociological
and environmental lens, the architecture and urban design office TVK works upon projects varying greatly in scope and ambition. Currently, the office is in charge of thinking the public spaces of the future Grand Paris Express stations, of designing the Ilot fertile d’Éole, the largest group of solid stone buildings built in Paris since Haussman (19th district of Paris), and of the creation of the Media Village for the Paris Summer 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games. The founders, Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger- Kohler, authors of the reconfiguration of the Place de la République in Paris and of the transformation of the E40 motorway into public space in Brussels, or even of the brand new housing and cultural centre of Batignolles in the 17th district of Paris, consistently enhance and add value where others cannot see it, or cannot see it yet.

French architects studio TVK & Tolila+Gilliland just unveiled a new cultural block in Paris (Clichy-Batignolles area) : Seven-theater cinema with cultural space, community center with concert space and dance studios, 342 residential units, a shared garden, bespoke artwork, and retail space.  Three residential buildings offering exceptional views of the great Parisian landscape anchor three corners of a mixed-use block. At the heart of the project is a cultural center for the new ZAC Clichy- Batignolles district in Paris’ 17th arrondissement: a seven-theatre cinema and a community center. These public volumes, anchored to the ground, give way to the public realm and are crowned with hanging gardens. Three residential blocks emerge from this base, climbing up to 50 meters. This simple distribution of masses effectively resolves the inscription of a complex program on a high-density site. (more…)
