Philippe Dubus Architects
Since its founding in 2000, the Philippe Dubus Architects agency has stood out for its ability to revisit and reinterpret architectural typologies.
Philippe Dubus Architects’s architecture establishes a dynamic relationship to context. Taking into account the transformation induced by each new construction, it seeks as much to fit into a place as to reconfigure it.
Familiar with functional interweaving, with the uses of both housing and work and with a methodology that allows it to meet the most diverse situations.
OP13 is a typical example to better understand the agency’s work. The architectural style of the cladding is based on the constructive logic of the existing facades and on an immutable vertical frame and continuous fixtures that adapt to create new buildings as opposed to the “static” rigor of the existing buildings between which they operate.
To offer a reading of Philippe Dubus architects it is necessary to pay attention to innovative forms, materials and a great processing technique.
In order to solve any problem.
To renew the authenticity of the chosen place, even if it is gradually disappearing, the architects develop a dialectic between “heavy” and “light, between passoto and the future, allowing the new building to fit perfectly into the context.
The challenge often lies in knowing how to place the built building in a specific environment, taking into account every detail.
56 Logements project starts from the center and is one of the most multi-purposed buildings the agency has ever undertaken: 56 apartments, a nursery school, a center for social reintegration and offices.
This very urbanized installation surrounds and highlights a wooded garden that has been previously preserved.
