Richard & Schoeller are experts in library conception and construction; the studio has designed more than dozen of library projects. Our strength on the subject are:
A long experience of work with the architectural necessities of scholars and students. The studio has studied and analyzed the organization of a great variety of campus worldwide (Columbia NY, University of Copenhagen, Massachusset Institute of Technology, Boston, Paris Sud, Saclay, etc.).
Competence and ability to create adapted volume fitting complex architectural programs and strong intentions. Structural rationality allows for a flexible architecture.
Skill to use traditional materials and their advanced technicality to offer a unique building that remains relevant for its users and sustainable: sophisticated concrete, steel and aluminum profile and clear glass. A special care given to details, secondary elements and their coherence (gypsum, wood, furniture, etc.).
Adequate design speed and great flexibility.
Worldwide-recognized studio (see CV for prizes and publications).
Cutting edge 3D modeling and movies (3DMax, C4D, Vray).
The studio has worked on a great number of schooling facilities and is familiar with the constraints and demands of educational buildings specially in Public Buildings.
International and transdisciplinary team ( architects, designers, 3D modeller, structural and HVAC and Electricity engineer space planer, urbanists, etc.)
Thorough respect of budget and time constraints and excellent knowledge of public facilities construction.
Performance of environmental certifications (HQE, BIM, BREAM, etc.).
