Since its founding in 2008 by Frédéric Chartier and Pascale Dalix, the ChartierDalix office has delivered some fifteen buildings. Noticed at several international competitions, it was awarded a number of prizes, among which the Première Œuvre du Moniteur prize in 2009, and the “40 under 40” European prize for young architects in 2012. The residence hall at the Porte des Lilas (Paris 20th arrondissement) was nominated for the Equerre d’argent prize and the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2014. The office recently received the “Le Soufaché” prized awarded by the French Academy of Architecture in recognition of its work as a whole.
      Laureate in 2016 of the international Réinventer-Paris competition for the Ternes-Villiers site and in 2017 with the Nouvelle AOM (Franklin Azzi Architecture and Hardel & Le Bihan Architectes) for the project “Demain Montparnasse,” the office masters a broad range of commissions and programs, both public, such as the La Courneuve train station of the Grand Paris Express, and private, notably several projects involving commercial properties, and hotels.
      Four construction sites are underway in 2018: Foor apartment projects, 24,200 m² of offices and the redevelopment of the Caserne de Lourcine (former barracks) in Paris 13th arrondissement for the Université de Paris 1.
      The firm has delivered several projects this year, from the restructuring of the Renault design center in Guyancourt 78 (Les Yvelines); the Tafanel warehouses, rue d’Aubervilliers in Paris 19th arrondissement; and 24,200 m² of offices and businesses in the Zac Batignolles (Joint Development Zone Business Park) in Paris 17th arrondissement.
      For the last several years, the research department of the office has undertaken work on the integration of the biosphere in architecture.
This theme was the inspiration for the project called “Architecture and Biodiversity: Imagining a new urban ecosystem,” which was selected under the framework of the request for proposals for the FAIRE project, launched by the Pavillon de l’Arsenal.
      The many investigations and analyses undertaken by the office, and the diversity of responses received concerning its buildings form an ensemble that reflects the evolution of contemporary living conditions. For this young team, architecture is envisaged as a built system combining the integration of the biosphere and poetry.
      Three construction works have been finished: an office-buildings operation in the Paris-Batignolles urban development zone (Zone d’Aménagement Concerté), a logistical hub in Paris (19th arr.) and the restructuration of the Renault design pole in Guyancourt.
      This website presents a selection of projects executed by the ChartierDalix firm between 2008 and 2018. They are divided into four sections according to their state of progress:

Delivered — Ongoing — Plans — Competitions

This progress-based presentation, rather than by project type, is a reflection of the scale and variety of the firm’s work over these first nine years.


Our research is thoroughly intertwined with the act of construction: throughout our practice we strive to explore all that can be evolved in the built environment. These reflections take shape in our projects, each being the product of this relationship between the realms of open-thought, poetry and delivery.
      This careful method of analysis can at the same time produce surprising exchanges and results that impact in a particular manner our multidisciplinary works; and define themes, or systems, that enrich the entirety of the work in progress. Our current projects are the statement of this very research we conduct at the office.


Chartier Dalix architectes is composed of 50 people. Through its projects, the office has worked on several types of programs and sites. Their projects reveal a marked sensitivity to the complexity of uses and contexts: they are always relevant, innovative and generous solutions in terms of both formal and programmatic consistency.
