Vincent Parreira is a French-Portuguese architect born in Paris in 1969. He graduated with a degree in architecture from École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris La Villette and founded his studio AAVP ARCHITECTURE in Paris in 2000. His ambition is to create projects that are brimming with sentiment. Projects that engage as much as possible with their context, paying utmost attention to materials, each one crafting its own, specific path. The concept of space is captured by the beauty of the senses and feeds on the different references of the creator, which connect closely with their surroundings. He won a mention at the 2011 Equerre d’Argent award for the municipal school complex in Saint-Denis (93), was nominated for the same award in 2012 with ATOLL, a retail eco-park in Angers (49) and was the winner of the Grand Prix d’urbanisme et d’architecture della Haute-Normandie (urban planning and architecture award) for the ATELIER culture centre in Gournay-en-Bray (76). These awards stem from the added value offered, based on bringing together aesthetics and function, at the same time blending into the context. Parreira today transposes the banality of daily life and generates visibility in the architectural scene backed by the confidence of the owners. He won “Réinventer Paris” with the construction of a mortuary with logistics platform on the site of Poterne des Peupliers (13th arrondissement). Vincent Parreira also designed sixty-nine social units for the city of Paris and ICF La Sablière (10th arrondissement). This project was nominated for the 2016 Equerre d’argent and won the 2017 ArchiDesignClub Awards in the mixed-use category.
