TAG member Stanhope Gate Architecture has won an invited competition to design a major residential scheme in the Quartier du-Parc in the Paris suburb of Serris, a new town in Seine-et-Marne.

The Project is a joint venture between French developer OTI and The Disney Corporation. Stanhope Gate Architecture will work with Paris based Estudio Hertenberger PCA who will act as executive Architects.

The scheme is set to provide 127 apartments in 7 buildings and 12 houses with a number of social housing units. The community of Serris which is part of the new town of Val d’Europe Marne-la-Valee is home to a number of high profile projects by well know Architects, such as Leon Krier, Pier Carlo Bontempi, Ricardo Bofill, Jean Nouvel and Maurice Culot.



The Stanhope Gate masterplan for the site and the design of the buildings follow the principles of traditional urban design and the concept of villas in the park, whilst maintaining the dense urban grouping of the buildings to align with the aspirations of the town’s masterplan. The Architecture of the building is based on the 18th century picturesque tradition using the villa typology and its adaption to multifamily units.



Alireza Sagharchi, Principal of Stanhope Gate Architecture said: “The Serris project represents crystallisation of our practice’s philosophy in creation of human scale urban environments of streets and squares and blocks that form the core of the traditional city. We believe that the size and volume of the brief should not necessarily dictate the size of the built form. The use of the urban villa typology in the architecture of the buildings is seamlessly adaptable to the needs of integration of modern housing and affordable housing without denigration of the Architecture or Place.

TAG Chairman, Alireza Sagharchi, appointed Cabe Built Environment Expert

This is the first time that TAG has been invited to participate in CABE,
CABE has now adopted a very pluralistic and inclusive approach to design review by drawing form a much wider set of disciplines other than Architecture, as well as the broad range of thinking across the Architecture spectrum. CABE is still dominated by the Modernist architects, and Mr Sagharchi's appointment is one of the more high profile ones.
