Our action is situated at the crossroads between architectural and urban creation, restoration of historic monuments and building conversions. The founding architects of the H20 agency all believe in the value of transversality and in a generous thinking process marked by exchange and hypotheses in the elaboration of a project with the client.
To avoid the trap of the “king-project”, we develop for each project a series of scenarios. These do not necessarily have to be seen as different options or alternatives, but rather pieces of a puzzle that can be assembled (or not) during the different stages of evolution of the project.
The agency likes to think that the solution that is adopted in the end becomes almost “obvious”, even when it has been the fruit of a number of discussions between the different members of the agency and with the client. In all our projects, we are of course very sensitive to major issues such as the environment and sustainable development, issues which we constantly seek to integrate in our creative thinking process.
Each project therefore becomes an experimental ground where the drawn line and the word progressively find their place. Depending on the nature of the programs, the projects allow for a balance between spaces where a function is suggested and spaces which openly invite the client to invent his space. This joint approach gives each project a rigorously conceived but playfully free soul.
