is an architectural office based in Paris, France.
The Franco-Italian agency created by Maria Giulia Rotunno and Ary Justman in 2017 moved to Paris in September 2019. The two partners, former collaborators at the Sou Fujimoto agency, are passionate about Japanese culture and share a humanist, social and environmental approach to architecture today.
A new temporale strate. This new floor stands out from the rest of the house by its resolutely contemporary vocabulary which is keen to interact with past heritage.
On this top floor, the new roof addresses three different slopes in alignment with the existing parts.
The differentiation of the slopes and the appearance of three distinct volumes is an architectural desire responding to a programmatic need but also in order to avoid a massive and monolithic project, crushing the existing house. In this register, the fault, central to the project, leads to a volumetric rupture.
Thus, a space crossed by light. A glass crossing then comes to dig the volume. This then makes it possible to lighten the extension to cut its horizontality, modifying the exterior facade to elevate and refine the house. In addition, this light strip brings an undeniable spatial quality to the project which begins a new dialogue between interior and exterior.

A new way of working. This project for the new offices of rotunno justman architectural firm was very challenging. Located in the heart of Le Marais, one of the most historical districts in Paris, the buildings dated from XVI century.
The construction site was full of surprises and we could discover wooden beams and a great original terrazzo while demolishing.
A new welcoming space was created to make employees feel comfortable and surrounded by nature.
Also, the charm of the existing walls was highlighted by scraping the layers to the original rough paintings and stonewall.
A stunning view on Pompidou Center by Piano and Rogers make working life better.
