AT THE SERVICE OF WELL-BEING
the dynamics of Ateliers 2/3/4/ are those of a group composed of individual talents.
Founded in 2000, Ateliers 2/3/4/ brings together the experiences of three french architectural firms that, from the beginning of the 80’s onwards, have paid particular attention to new, emergent ways of living, ways that demand a return to simplicity and the essentials.
Ateliers 2/3/4/ supports an idea of luxury that could be defined as “savoir vivre à la française,” knowing how to live French-style, in search of well-being. Each Project, individually conceived and custom designed, presents an opportunity for research into what will render it unique, whether through sustainable development materials, typology, or manner of construction.
LIke an article of clothing, Ateleirs 2/3/4/’s buildings protect without constricting movement; like a landscape, they evolve over time.
Before deciding upon materials for a project, Ateliers 2/3/4/ gives prominence to the only primary material in constant supply: light.
Ateliers 2/3/4/ believes “Density” to be one of the prinicipal components of the city; its know-how in lending permeability to buildings grants it an alchemic ability, tranforming “density into intensity.”
Ateliers 2/3/4/’s wealth of resources stems from its organizational makeup. Structured horizontally around ten architectural project directors and three urban planning project directors, the firm possessses a flexibility that enables it to treat a wide variety of project scales.
five points contribute to the relevance of Ateliers 2/3/4/’s proposals, ensuring the consistency of the its thinking:
1 – understand context, observe the territority with an eye committed to society.
2 – take distance, overcome constraints, consider that solutions are born from paradoxes.
3 – assemble, make contact, a construction is not merely an object, but a place of exchange.
4 – stimulate the senses, live and arouse joy, give pleasure, supply poetry.
5 – Balance, each difference will translate into a quality, seek harmony, peace.
This framework ensures not only respect for symbolic values and the employing of fundamentals for “living together” in a better way, but strives moreoever to take up the major challenge inherent in the act of construction: creating permeance and durability.
