MVRDV launch Paris office as expansion drive continues

We have already worked for a long time and intensely in France and we want to deepen that love with our presence
– Winy Maas, MVRDV co-founder

MVRDV founders Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries have announced the opening of a new office in Spaces Réaumur, Paris, reflecting the firm’s long line of forthcoming projects in France.

This year, construction has already begun on the reconstruction of the Part-Dieu shopping centre in Lyon and the extensive renovation of the Gaite-Montparnasse shopping centre in Paris, with a porous façade connecting the mall to the street, library and station. Work will start imminently on two mixed-use complexes in Bordeaux and Rennes.

Previously, MVRDV have completed the Pushed Slab office building in Paris, and developed a 2030 masterplan for the capital and its suburbs.

“We have already worked for a long time and intensely in France and we want to deepen that love with our presence,” said studio co-founder Winy Maas.

In a statement, MVRDV added: “By opening an office in Paris alongside a head office in Rotterdam and an office in Shanghai, MVRDV wants to strengthen its presence in France and provide a solid basis for future assignments.

“The new office will be led by architect Bertrand Schippan, who was involved in various French projects, and it is located near the famous Marché de Montorgueil in a six-storey Art Nouveau building from 1905 that was designed by Gustave Eiffel.”

MVRDV began in 1993 in Rotterdam, and have designed numerous high-profile leisure buildings in the intervening years, including the Markthal Rotterdam, the Tianjin Binhai Library in China, Denmark’s Museum of Rock Music and a botanical “floating walkway” along a transformed city highway in Seoul.

Future projects around the world include a mixed-use residential and leisure district for Abu Dhabi’s Makers District, a public park and cultural district in Shanghai and a green corridor with an artificial lagoon in Tainan.

In April 2016, the studio added five new partners as part of a management reshuffle intended to nurture “intellectual and creative continuity, organisational growth and stability.”
