Atelier Téqui Architects focuses his research on accuracy and the subtlety of his proposals. His work on the subject requires a prolonged experience, a curiosity and attention to accomplishments past. It’s about knowing the vital needs of the material and its own constitution to anticipate aging. Therefore, the passing time brings its patina to the project. This architecture, reconnecting with the story, aims the durability of the construction. It sublimates itself in the thickness, the thickness of the material but also historical thickness and density of the territory.
Since the creation of the workshop in 2006, Louis Téqui and his team have considered the architectural project as a pretext for benevolence. In the exchange with the Project Owner, the community and its elected officials, companies and engineers, active listening and high standards are the common values necessary for the quality of the achievement. In 2018, Atelier Téqui was awarded by The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, among the forty architects under forty in Europe (40 under 40) who “will influence the near future of European architecture, both in theory and in practice. Atelier Téqui works on the expression of structural truth, the optimization of material resources, and the precision of its implementation“. The project manager, the Atelier Téqui focuses its architecture with a concern for sustainable development, durability, where the quality of the materials and their implementation hold a decisive place. The practice of the Atelier Téqui comes to exalt the genius of the place, it highlights the nobility of the materials, the richness of the trades, the past coming to reveal the future. It is rooted in the context to pursue, develop, affirm, or express its hidden value. It assumes the complexity of the world and the value of human relationships. This architecture does not come to abolish, but it renews to accomplish.
