Our Vision

The etymology of “between 間 [ within a definite space ]” known as ‘ma 間’ in Japanese or ‘Jian 間’ in Chinese, embodies our design approach and philosophy . “ Between two cultures, two objects, two buildings, two rooms … there is a space … the space of possibilities, where life has to be develop “

In design fields, spaces between buildings are design and think as public spaces… spaces between functions are usages… spaces between meeting rooms are interaction areas … spaces between retail displays are consumers journey …

This “inbetween space” has a lot to offer if you see it as a possibility, as a link, as a soul… between things.

“Between Stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom “
Viktor Emil Frankl.

We design our projects “in and within” the space as a full design entity.

A tailor-made approach - An on-going conversation - “ Made with China ”

Today, in a boutique spirit, in this on-going conversation, inbetween ARCHITECTS, operate as a link between different Cultures, different design fields, intend to feed the space “inbetween” … in this way we question cultural, historical, and geographical insights to the Chinese context.

" In each project, we confront the area, the city, the culture, the surroundings with our own inspirations and Heritage. It’s this on-going conversation that feeds us…

“Within interior design projects, I’ve learn to be involve with textures, colors, lighting and Materials. Architects usually think in volume, space and light, but sometime tend to forget colors and textures. When I design interior space, an hotel, a showroom or a restaurant, the design vocabulary and the atmosphere of the space born from the dialogue between all the elements .

In our European way of working and our tailor made approach, human and sensitive, we crafts projects till construction based our solid details skills and our strong personal involment :

“ We are also extremely concern to bring projects from concept up to execution. The main challenge in China is to offer quality design concept up to a built project, meeting our quality standards. ”

We works for international clients in hospitality projects - Grand Millennium Suzhou - Commercial Offices ( Suez , Aldes ) and Retail programs ( De Dietrich )


Inbetween 區間 的理念

选择繁体汉字區間作为工作室的名字体现了查思明的追求和设计理念。
他说: “两种文化、两件物品、两栋大楼……两者之间总有一个空间,一个充满机会的空间,这是生活需要创新和发展的空间。”

在设计领域,建筑物之间的空间是公共区域,设备之间的空间是使用度,会议室之间的空间是互动场所,在商店柜台之间的空间则是消费者的旅程……

这种“区间”提供了许多可能性,如同两个事物之间的链接、纽带以及灵魂。

心理学家维克多·埃米尔·弗兰克尔曾经说过:“在质疑和解答之间有一个空间。在这个空间里蕴藏着我们解答的权力。在我们的解答中成就了成长和自由。”

我们在策划项目时会把空间的“空”与“实”考虑进去,作为一个整体来完成设计。

一种量身定制的方法 - 一种持续的对话 - “与中国一起创造”
正是这种为客户量身定制的服务,始终保持对话的模式,缔造了Inbetween ARCHITECTS 區間的工作理念。也正是在这样的空间下,设计师们为不同的文化衔接设计的桥梁,逐步弥补“两者之间”的空缺。当然,所有的前提都是这种充满文化、历史和地理等元素的对话必须适用于当下的中国。

“在每一个项目中,我们所见到的地方、城市、文化、各种环境都与我们原有的自身的文化意识产生的碰撞。正是这种永久持续的对话赋予了我们无限的知识。”
“在室内设计项目中,我学会了如何把纹理、颜色、光线和材质结合在一起。建筑师们往往考虑的是体积、空间和光线,但通常会忽略颜色和纹理。当我在做如酒店、展示厅或餐厅的室内空间设计时,所有这些元素之间的对话会为我带来整个设计和环境氛围的理念和想法。”

A FRENCH ARCHITECT IN CHINA
Jerome Charignon, French registered Architect has a M.Arch by "de la Ville et des Territoires " Paris since 1997. There, he was breaded with contextual architecture from his peers, such as Architect Yves Lion and Landscape Architect Alexandre Chemetoff.

He has been based in Asia for 15 years, both in Singapore and Shanghai. China is providing him endless inspiration, bustling creativity and a taste for innovation.
In 1999, he moved from Paris to Singapore and worked with HYLA Architects, where he designed and built residential and commercial projects.
Based in Shanghai since 2006, Jerome served as Design director of db&b, a Singaporean design studio, where he and his team designed and built projects for international clients, such as Eaton group, Accor, Axa, Michelin, Danone, Leo Burnett, WPP group ( Young & Rubicam, JWT, GroupM, TNS RI…) …
 
A tailor-made approach
Mid 2011, Jerome creates his own architecture workshop Inbetween ARCHITECTS 區間, operating as a link between Paris and Shanghai.
“ As citizen of the world and Architect, living and working in China today feels like a privilege, as much as a creative booster ! The dialog between modern and ancient China just never stops, for the best ".

Most of all, INBETWEEN values the relationship and dialogue with client as a key element in the project.
In a boutique spirit, INBETWEEN crafts projects from conceptualization till construction, based on a solid network built with time and experience.
« My ancestor Joseph Charignon was involved in the construction of the railway line from Kunming to Hanoi, in 1910, and he was the first French national to be granted with Chinese citizenship. Few decades later, I walk on his footsteps. Some things here have remained untouched…”
 
Design with China
“ Made with China ” could be INBETWEEN's motto.
Charignon's assets is his ability to understand the DNA and history of his clients, mostly international companies, and craft a design which fits to Modern China.


一位生活在中国的法国建筑师

查思明(Jerome Charignon)于1997年获得法国国家认可注册建筑师职称。1999年他首次来到亚洲,在新加坡生活了4年之后返回巴黎。2006年,他来到上海并在此定居。
在亚洲的生活为他提供各种工作经历,累计了相关的专业知识。亚洲有着独特的市场、悠久的历史以及创新的欲望,这些因素都深深地影响着查思明。

早在法国学习期间,查思明师从建筑设计师伊夫·里盎(Yves Lion)以及景观设计师亚历山大·谢梅诺夫(Alexandre Chemetof),毕业后他便跟随两位老师一起工作。
之后,他离开巴黎来到新加坡,加入了HYLA Architects工作室。在那里,他主要负责设计高档住宅以及商业建筑。

查思明拥有良好的法国教育背景,浓厚的欧洲文化底蕴更使他坚信自己是一位以生活“环境”为核心的建筑师,尤其是当他在法国以外的工作环境中,他把自身的法国传统融入到新的地域,结合当地的风俗习惯进行创新设计。

2006年来到上海之初,查思明担任过新加坡一家的工作室的设计总监,在他的领导下,他和团队一起完成了许多重要客户的设计项目。在这些国家知名客户中包括WPP集团、伊顿、雅高酒店集团、达能、米其林等等

2011年,查思明决定建立自己的建筑工作室:Inbetween ARCHITECTS 區間。

今天,Inbetween ARCHITECTS 區間具有一家欧洲工作室的工作理念和思维模式:为客户带来高品质的服务,给予最佳的咨询,创新和沟通为主旨。从概念设计到建设项目,工作室凭借出众的专业知识以及在亚洲地区丰富的资历为其客户提供优质的服务。
