Atelier du Pont, a human experience
Atelier du Pont is a French architecture studio, who believe that architecture is above all a human experience.
Their approach is global, cover all aspects: architecture, town planning, interior architecture, furniture, artistic direction, space planning.
To draw the first outlines of a project, Atelier du Pont Architects practice the landscape, the climate, but also the uses and traditional know-how, local raw materials, the genius of the place. For a contextual and generous architecture.
There is no default answer. Each project is an opportunity to explore new paths, which is why buildings are not only a matter of rehabilitation but also of reactivation, of continuing to write this history and trying to anticipate the future.
Being a human experience, The Docks complex responds perfectly to design features for a new approach to social housing.
The project was inspired by early 20th century concrete industrial buildings, whose forms were powerful and imposing, if at times strange, to which it has added footbridges and metal stairways.
The construction of new homes that infiltrate the urban jungle, claiming a significant change: this characterizes the entire “Giardin-Jardines” project. The architects wanted to restore the two-sided character of Rue de Belleville with a design that plays on density, stacking and layering, creating a contemporary design that revisits the traditional faubourg housing typology.
Taking into account the whole that builds a city, the French studio is attentive to the types and uses of construction methods, everything in the right place gives the project its legitimacy and identity. Elegant, unique, linear, geometric works, imbued with a social note, paint the French landscape.
