Profile of Guilhem Eustache, headquartered in France. Four projects submitted by Guilhem Eustache have been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
After graduating in 1986 from the Architecture School of Paris (l´Ecole Spéciale d´Architecture de Paris), my projects in France include day care centers, a school, the renovation of a private residence as well as several lofts and apartments. I´ve also worked with a Belgian film producer on a series of projects in Marrakech and more recently in Brazil with a house all in curves. Improving the quality of life has long been my professional creed, where the core value is space rather than the object. A demanding personal commitment to clean space and well lit volumes. A singular universe to be seen and understood. By changing axes and heights, alternating the empty and full, creating a balance of masses, generating light, superimposing surfaces and varying scale, I seek to create a dialogue between these elements in order to compose a complex and singular space to serve the user. To do so, I emerge myself in the project - accompany and carry it - unrelentingly seeking inventive and generous solutions. Constant in my choices and orientations, my projects are inscribed in the continuity of a tradition that responds to the demands of both the environment and society. Respecting the local context without succumbing to folklore, a quest for lasting simplicity.
To help illustrate this vision, you will find below the presentation of a few of my projects. Each was created with a similar approach: focus on the essential elements of the project and location to then compose a minimal geometry built on presence and absence, full and empty, seeking through the friction of the material and surfaces to set off a vibration in the space.
