RIVP called this morning !
vib wins design competition for Audition Institute, Agir pour l’Audition, on 63, Charenton street in Paris 12.
The building is curently used by a law school but will be entirelly renovated. The project organises around a patio and a large atrium a complex program that includes : a conference center, a cafeteria, offices and research laroratories. The ground floor and the amphitheatre will be designed to hoast large events dedicated to the visually or hearing impaired. The building will be unique for the technology and ergonomics that will be integrated in it.
Special care will be taken on the design for the façace. The building is located in a small comercial street near bastille and the narrow facade will have to reveal all the complexity and the quality of the large program that develops deep into the site. Even if exemples exist, designing and constructing this facade is a new challenge for the office.
