Piuarch and Stefano Sbarbati Architecte have won an international design contest to design the new headquarters of the French housing company IDF Habitat in Champigny-sur-Marne. Designed in collaboration with Stefano Sbarbati, the new building is described as “linear and efficient,” but it also acts as a defining building in a new public square, offering “an example of how architecture can contribute to defining empty spaces, transforming them into social areas,” according to the architects.
