In 2012, their work received the “Prix d’Architecture du Moniteur 2012 pour la première oeuvre”. (French National prize for the first built work). Today, the atelier develops a broad range of architecture programs (housing, public works, offices...) with a particular attention to integration of each project into its own historic, geographic and environmental context.

The mining village of Faymoreau needs to renew and revitalize itself, to create a new connected neighborhood that is alive and above-all pleasant to live in. We propose a project of 20 houses inscribed in the topography of the village, in harmony with the landscape. The project is conceived as a fourth terrace of the existing miner’s housing, a balcony over the landscape beyond. It will enrich and expand the network of public spaces, via connections and pathways, linking old and new residents and providing the framework for a diverse public life (market, events, shops ...).
The site is bordered by a new road directly linked to the 20 housing units. The houses are semi-detached and arranged on narrow plots, reflecting the traditional shotgun plan typical to the village. They are organized on three levels: on the ground floor a living room and bedroom with shower; upstairs, two bedrooms with bath; in the basement, a cellar / garden shed. An offset pattern of terraces are proposed between the houses to maintain intimacy while respecting the linear nature of the mining habitat. All accommodations feature a triple orientation: ground floor rooms are oriented west and south, upstairs the bedrooms are oriented East and West, on one side toward the collective vegetable gardens, and to the other side toward the terraces, private gardens and wooded landscape beyond.
