We are a 360° agency, led by women and men capable of providing all the expertise, energy and enthusiasm necessary for the design and realisation of generous and animated spaces, from the simplest to the most complex.
From the railings to the 5th facade, from the building to the territory.
Taking possession of a site, revealing it, giving it meaning. Imagining living spaces, placing the person, their needs and desires at the centre of the design. Listening to the context, the environment, the landscape, the users. Each project is different and our teams are collectively committed to finding the right solution.
Expertly guaranteeing project management as a whole, from design to execution. Supporting, managing, and ensuring the completion of a project. Leading a project, from sketch to delivery, with perseverance and a constant concern for consistency. The men and women of our Worksite team, proven experts, work hand in hand with the agency’s design architects.
Designing spaces and creating environments that are unique, identity-based and sustainable. Paying attention to details, materials, sensations, to create living places that feel good, to live in, to work in, to exchange.in. Our team of architects and designers designs and reveals spaces with poetry and rigour.
Observing, feeling, listening, looking at all the landscapes. The great landscape of fertile land, where urbanity can be invented. Imagining each plot, patio, terrace, the surroundings of a building, the public spaces of a city, as a landscape in its own right, beneficial for everybody – fauna, flora, users and residents. Let us take care of our soil to allow our ideal to grow.
Research is central to A.R.T.E.'s approach, and to its name: Architecture, Research, Technique, Environment. R&D is at the heart of the agency’s activity. Seeking, observing, and innovating to design tomorrow's spaces: For ARTE Charpentier, research is based on the project and is for the project. Since 2016, we have established an R&D department that initiates and develops research activities in-house. Its proper functioning is ensured by a standing committee composed of members of the management and several researchers. ARTE designers are invested in different fields of research according to their interests and sensitivities. Five priority research axes and five cross-disciplinary themes have been identified on the basis of the needs and expertise specific to the agency and its projects. R&D at Arte Charpentier also includes book publications, the dissemination of knowledge (round table discussions, etc.), and collaborative research projects with French and international institutions (CNRS, WLSP, etc.) and architecture schools and universities (ENSA Paris-Belleville, La Sorbonne, Diderot, etc.).
Thinking of territories as a whole. Identifying constraints: topographical, programme-based, regulatory. Being attentive to the context, uses, flows, environment. Designing porosities, mixing usages. We approach urban planning from the human scale, in all circumstances, when considring a Parisian ZAC and when deploying prospective studies and masterplans.
