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” prize, 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.
Six construction sites are underway in 2018: Three housing projects, 24,200 m² of offices in Saint-Denis (93), and 65,000 m² of tertiary campus in Saint-Ouen (93).
The firm has delivered several projects recently, from the redevelopment of the Caserne de Lourcine (former barracks) in Paris 13th arrondissement for the University of Law Paris 1, 54 private housing units in Saint-Denis (93), the restructuring of the Renault design center in Guyancourt (78), the Tafanel warehouses, rue d’Aubervilliers in Paris 19th arrondissement, 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.
