Website

ChartierDalix is a French architectural office whose objective is to offer generous spaces, quality of life, and pleasurable places in which to be. For several years, the office has been working on the integration of life and biodiversity in architecture, wherein architecture is apprehended as a built system combining life, poetry, and the commons. Since its creation, ChartierDalix has completed over twenty-five buildings. The office has grown steadily since its creation in 2008 by Pascale Dalix and Frédéric Chartier, and now hosts 86 collaborators and has ten current projects in process.The office has received numerous French and international awards, including the Moniteur Première Œuvre Award in 2009 and the European Young Architects Award “40 under 40″ in 2012. In 2022, the new headquarters of the Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux in Paris awarded ChartierDalix the Équerre d’argent Award in the “Lieux d’activité” category. The office was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2015 and received the “Le Soufaché” prize in 2017, awarded by the French Académie d’architecture for the whole of its work.In 2019, Frédéric Chartier and Pascale Dalix were appointed Chevaliers des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture. They are frequently invited as teachers, lecturers or jury members in several schools of architecture, in France and abroad.
