An idea, a trait, a shape, a color, a material… For Arching, architecture is movement, gestures, spirit. A material: Arching’s material is creativity. Humble but audacious, original but durable, able to change over time with the life of the building and those who live in it. The fundamental belief of the 300 architects, planners, economics and engineers that make up Arching is: imagine together, draw life around people for people.
Jobs : Architectural and landscape design, interior design, project management. From feasibility study to draft, from pilot project to building permit through to site supervision and assistance with reception of works.
Planning is projection of uses in favor of the public, over time. For Arching, rethinking the city is rethinking life. Urban regeneration and renovation, creation of new districts, activity areas, commercial planning or public spaces… With us, each project is accompanied by a method that asks about the history, movements, customs, legends and unique identity of the location. We take a systematic approach to planning, with empathy, modesty and conviction. The ambition? To bring the workplace to life by allowing everyone to express themselves with pride in where they come from and where they are going.
Jobs : Capacity studies, town planning, setting-up of programs, movement and mobility, eco-design.
To create an emotion, to leave the mind’s mark while expressing one’s identity. For us, interior design must be a voyage of experimentation. Offices, reception halls, restaurants, business premises, housing units and hotels – we transform a simple space into an invitation to experience fullness of feeling and sensation. Identification of uses, thoughts on movements, management of spaces, making more of the reception process, configuration of lighting, choice of materials and colors, we uncover what makes and will make each location a unique design.
Jobs : architectural design, design of spaces, management of movement and spaces, place planning, scenography, creation of identity.
For us, each project is the fruit of a human adventure with added strength from start to finish. The challenge for all is respect for deadlines and costs, guarantee of quality of completion and of safety of persons who contribute, within the framework of an ethic that is beyond criticism. We are convinced that a successful project is first and foremost a project built collectively and with optimism. For this reason, we also develop made-to-measure tools adapted to the needs of our clients and our projects. Our great achievements have always been thought out together, within the context of an iterative work process sharing the talents of owners, partners and group members, all overseen by our experts.
Our areas of activity
Offices, activity and logistics centers, campuses, universities, academic centers, town halls, business or academic establishment catering facilities, prisons and detention centers, law courts and places of worship.
For us, the engineering and architecture must be adapted to the context, with demand and creativity, as soon as the context is understood. For this reason, we see each project as an evolving ecosystem while taking account of the sociological dimensions of the place: use of modern energy technology for economical locations, ergonomics of spaces for better living together.
Foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, biotech, cosmetics, mechanics, plastics, logistical platforms, biology, chemistry, microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, research centers, hospital, clinics, FAM, MAS, IME and so on.
We design and build factories, production units, technical platforms in hospitals, and entire premises with consideration both for optimization of the production process and for the public visiting the premises. We are ever the professionals seeking to create therein a working area that is pleasant, ergonomic, top-quality, wide open to the public where necessary, able to develop on a human level in the long or short term, warm, and conducive to meetings with others.
