The “Ilot K” block is the result of an innovative approach, devised through the encounter between the developer, Nacarat, and the Atelier Vera & Barrand architectural firm, to develop the concept from scratch for a mixed-use programme, combining shops and office premises, housing and a car silo. The long-term aim was to change attitudes and habits by imagining and testing the capacities for vertical mixing of uses. From summer 2008 to summer 2009, step by step, the design scheme matured through meetings and very open discussion.

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. The site occupies an entire block, close to the centre of the district.

Appartements La Duchère Lyon – 6 Mar 2013
The 60 apartments, divided into block 7 and 8 are situated on Balme Hill in the district La Duchère in Lyon. The apartments are facing Boulevard Balmont on the South and benefit from a panoramic view of the city due to the sloped topography of the site. The beauty of the exceptional geographical situation surrounded by dense vegetation has driven the design to open up the maximum area of exterior spaces in the form of a shared garden and private terraces.

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.

Lyons Building : Hotel de Region Rhone Alpes – added 8 Jun 2011
Regional power is growing stronger, and thus needs to assert its presence, to be symbolized in the urban space. Immediately the building shows its interior composed of debate and meeting areas. The luminous web of the various rooms is defined by the office buildings, which are coiling around and over it, thus diffusing the natural light and multiplying the sights.
This new kind of open block unveils a whole inner scenery to the court and the street to embrace the city. The interpenetration of inhabited solids and voids sets a visible forum, a political square.
