Patrice Gardera
GARDERA-D is a multi-disciplinary architectural firm.
After achieving more than ten years of professional experience working with word acclaimed architecture firms (Diller+Scofidio in New York, Jakob+Macfarlane in Paris), Patrice Gardera creates his own company “GARDERA-D” in 2007.
Originally based in Paris, the firm is quickly joined in 2009 by an antenna in south-west of France (Biarritz), in order to optimize the management of the growing presence of projects in this area from where Patrice Gardera is originated.
Today, international projects are also starting to develop, amongst them an hotel complex in Bali, Indonesia in partnership with Philippe Starck, or private luxury villas in Mauritius Island..
The company explores a wide field of investigation, and answers a varied range of projects, from architecture (private or public housing, offices, educational buildings, cultural equipments...) to inside decoration or design of objects and furniture
In order to do so, the office is backed up by a network of independent specialists: technical engineers, environmental scientists and specialists, landscapists, acousticians, scenographers… with whom Patrice Gardera has developed an effective relationship after years of sharing mutual working experiences.
Each project is studied and developed with a high degree of specificity, with an overall approach oriented toward a particular attention drawn to the building “quality of use” and the search of an optimum in the relationship between site and architecture.
Each of the projects developed in the office are moved by a voluntary “common sense” approach to the notion of “environmental quality”, the good knowledge of local geographical constraints, the comprehension and assimilation of current materials and construction techniques.
