architectes NP2F

NP2F is an architecture practice created in 2009 by Nicolas Guérin, Paul Maitre Devallon, Fabrice Long and François Chas. Together, 12 people work between Nice and Paris and intervene in many cities in France and abroad. The projects on which the NP2F practice work are architectural as well as and urban. Its fields of competence are sports, housing, cultural and educational buildings, relaxation and catering spaces, and public spaces.

The practice has acquired a strong knowledge in spaces for sports in the Parisian metropolis whilst being a scientific curator to the exhibition “Sports, portrait of a metropolis” for the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in 2014.

Today, the practice is developing 127 housing units for the mutation of the Caserne de Reuilly (Paris 12th) and the Sports Cathedral of Bordeaux Brazza.
