DDA - © Joan BRACCOWork conducted on national monuments such as Mont Saint-Michel, the Pantheon, the Arc de Triomphe and the Thoronet Abbey has made the reputation of Devaux Devaux & architects. And since its founding the agency has worked to develop culturally-based projects on remarkable sites. But for the Guignier nursery on a tiny plot in Paris’s 20th arrondisment, the challenge for the architects was to take an enclosed and constrained environmemt and in it house and protect and provide children with bright surroundings that favor relationships with the outside, the sky, the garden and the sun. More of a momorial, than patrimonial project.
