ÉQUIPE

Jean-Michel Humbert a obtenue son master en Architecture à l'Ecole Supérieure Nationale d'Architecture de Nancy. Depuis 2006, Jean-Michel a mené la conception et la réalisation de divers programmes allant de la maison individuelle à l'aménagement d'une école. Jean-Michel est a fondé PlanH en 2012 à Paris

APPROCHE

Grâce à une approche humaniste qui ne tient pas seulement compte des besoins du client et du site mais aussi de l’environnement économique et culturel, les solutions que nous obtenons sont tout autant contextuelles que conceptuelles et visionnaires dans leurs intentions, effets et apparences. Les projets soulignent des expériences conceptuelles en créant des environnements qui sont à la fois responsables et sensibles socialement, et esthétiquement progressifs. Le pouvoir des paysages géométriques, l’intégrité matérielle et la sculpture de la lumière naturelle aussi bien que la pureté des volumes spatiaux, créent des solutions aux exigences pragmatiques du client, à la construction et au contexte.

NOS VALEURS

Tout projet d’architecture significatif exprime son but par les solutions qui se trouvent dans sa réalisation. En architecture, comme dans tout autre métier artistique, notre recherche porte sur la forme et sur son design. Avec PlanH, les projets et solutions proposés sont imprégnés de valeurs qui trouvent leur expression dans leur rapport au programme et au client. Nous soulignons souvent ces valeurs essentielles et continuons à les améliorer. Ces idées forment la cohérence des projets du studio qui souhaite porté une empreinte dans le monde du design.
Travailler avec le contexte
Every project is unique in its surroundings. No matter how common the use – whether it is residential, hospitality, office – every project has a distinct mix of site influences: geography, history, landscape, urban. We find some of our greatest design inspiration in the context. By working back and forth between the design of the building and analysis of the site, a strong connection can be developed between the two
L’honnêteté des matériaux
If architecture is the statement, materials are the words: how we communicate our design. We choose materials based on their particular properties and rarely try to alter or conceal them. Materials can express the relationship of the project to the site, to the landscape, or to an idea. Through materials we can define qualities of space to suit a specific use.
Environnement partagé
As part of our keenness to connect each project to its surroundings, we often work to blend interior and exterior spaces into a single, fluid experience. Whether this means opening rooms onto concealed courtyards, or pulling the landscape into the home via folded gardens, we aim to infuse natural light, air, and views throughout as much of the interior as possible.
Expansion de l’espace
We often seek to create a sense of space expanding beyond physical bounds. Overlapping functional zones can lead to open floor plans, which provide opportunities not only for borrowed views which hint of space beyond, but also for flexibility which can transform spaces. We can divide spaces with flexible constructions that conceal or reveal a variety of functions, to allow possibilities of unity or compartmentalization within a single space.
Technique d’expression
A physical characteristic can connect the project to its site and contribute to its unique identity. On every project, we develop custom details, which are inspired by the materials we use, analysis of the context, and performance. We see each detail as an opportunity to express our ingenuity, as we seek the most direct and honest approach to a problem, in pursuit of an elegant solution.
La lumière sculptée
As the light changes, so changes the experience of space, and the design becomes a living thing. One of our most valued and powerful design resources is natural light, as a means of directing focus, highlighting materials, and creating experience. The power of light is both psychological and physical, as light greatly influences both mood and well-being. We strive to incorporate multiple sources of natural light within every project, to foster a richly varied experience.
