archi5 was created in 2003 on the basis of a common experience and a triple requirement: attention to the context, the truth of the materials and the precision of the execution.
The agency is based in Montreuil, near Paris. Today, it has 40 collaborators from different cultural and professional backgrounds: architecture, urban planning and landscape design. archi5 works on public facilities projects, private commissions and urban planning projects in France and around the world.
Starting from a rigorous analysis of the context and a sensitive listening to expectations, our objective is to respond with simple forms to needs that are always complex. These forms are welcoming and legible: they anchor the building in its landscape, allowing for and developing life around it. This does not make us formalists: from the outset, our agency has cultivated a diversity of architectural styles. Each project, with its own materials and scale, is an autonomous system, engaged in a dialogue with its environment, its users and its inhabitants. Going beyond the sum of the responses to the programme, it produces a singular emotion.
