Biodiversarium in Banyuls-Sur-Mer building by Tectoniques
The port of Banyuls-Sur-Mer provides a unique setting for exploring and better understanding the marine biodiversity of the Pyrénées Orientales region. It is home to an extraordinarily abundant marine nature reserve, covering 650 hectares under the sea. On the land, the bay is dominated by an ocean observatory built in 1882, originally known as the “Laboratoire Arago”.

Paul Chevallier School Complex – 2 Jul 2013
The Paul Chevallier school complex is situated in Rillieux-la-Pape, a northern suburb of Lyon. At 5,034 m2, it is an unusually large project; and this indicates the growing attractiveness of the area. The complex currently comprises a nursery school and an elementary school. In 2014, a gym will be added, which will also be available for community activities.

Mozart ZAC Housing – 10 Dec 2012
For Tectoniques, this project represents a relatively recent process of reflection and production – that of collective housing in an urban landscape. The team is familiar with the theme of habitats: accommodation for elderly and/or dependent people, tourist residences or private houses. But this is their first design for urban social housing.

Ecole Maternelle Nimes – 20 Sep 2012
A large part of the programme is placed on the first upper floor to comply with flood protection requirements for the area. As a result, the architecture is unique among the design schemes produced by the firm. The building seems to float a few metres above the ground, like a vessel hovering at the height of the roofs of the surrounding houses.

House in Lyon – 20 Dec 2011
This French house, whose name is a play on the owners’ names, occupies a previously empty space in the residential Croix-Rousse district of Lyon. The house turns away from direct confrontation, and exploits chinks in the landscape in order to optimise the views and ambiances.
