Atelier Bonnet Architects
From a watch to a pavilion, from urban furniture to infrastructure, from landscape design to apartment buildings: since the founding of Atelier Bonnet in the year 2000, the work of Pierre and Mireille Bonnet, covering a wide range of themes and scales, is conceived in a spirit of interaction and complicity. In the face of such a diversity of works, the monograph concentrates on a series of exemplary residential buildings, which document the skillful handling of this fundamental building task. In their most recent works, the architects have also occupied themselves intensively with the use of exposed concrete and with questions of tectonics. The resulting sculptural design and the abstract language of these objects provide further examples of a highly sensitive architecture, with an undeniable artistic dimension.
