Benjamin Fleury

Benjamin Fleury. Architecture firm, based in Montreuil, founded by Benjamin Fleury, in 2004. The studio develops the dual discipline of Architecture-Urbanism, in a totally transversal way. Thus, the relationship between territory and architecture is constantly questioned. The studio's preferred territory is the suburbs of Paris, with the declared aim of enhancing the intrinsic qualities of these complex urban landscapes, sometimes undervalued.

Its commitment to social programs has been demonstrated by the construction of a homeless shelter in Rambouillet, major rehabilitation of unhealthy social housing in Paris, and the design of housing for social access to the property in Montreuil and Saint-Denis. But it is above all through its work for Foncière Logement, which aims to establish a real mix of housing within Urban Renewal Projects, that the studio best expresses its social commitment, to Orléans, Pantin, Villeneuve la Garenne, and Aubervilliers.

The rigor of the plan is the basis of a controlled project: it is furnished from the design phase to verify all potential uses. Bioclimatic principles are integrated from the start of the studies. Reflection on communal spaces allows for the creation of social links, in particular with the development of shared roof gardens, for example.

Once the plans have been defined and the volume established, the workshop focuses on the materials while respecting the local identity. Whether plaster, brick, or wood, the only thing that guides the choices made is the coherence between the project and its surroundings, in order to design a situated architecture. The concern for the quality of the materials selected, combined with the rigor of the execution details and the meticulous monitoring of the execution, guarantees the durability of the façades.
