Pierre Blondel Architectes
- Since the firm’s creation in 1982, we have specialised in designing grouped housing in urban environments, working on renovations and the construction of new developments.[...]
Its projects, that have earned the firm numerous architecture prizes (1992, 1994, 2000, 2004 and 2010), set out to show that it is possible to design quality housing even in difficult urban situations.
Over the past 10 years, we have set our sights on applying the knowledge gained in the field of housing to public housing so as to bring about a real change in attitudes towards such developments.
Alongside theoretical research into the question (Pierre Blondel teaches at La Cambre School of Architecture where he heads a workshop devoted exclusively to housing. He also regularly gives conferences on this subject), the firm has completed many housing projects on behalf of the public authorities, all of which tackle the difficult challenge of public housing: delivering high-quality housing taking on board budgetary and planning constraints.
The firm has also built 3 sports halls, 2 business centres, 2 office buildings, 11 individual homes and a walkway.
