Em is a 34yo French engineer and architect. She first worked in project management in Paris before moving to architecture. She has a particular interest in the emotionnal response to spaces and focus on bringing a relaxing and peaceful feeling into our projects.
We believe producing good architecture doesn't involve wearing black suits and using complicated acronymes. We love to have casual and sincere discussions with our clients.
We consider light as the foremost opportunity. We aim to bring sunlight and nature inside, as well as leading your eye outside. We work on transparency, vertically and horizontally.
Our creative and artistic mindsets, as well as multicultural backgrounds makes us open-minded and proactive personnalities. We bring worldwide ideas, colors, smells and textures into our design. We have worked in rich and less rich countries, we know the cost od things. We stay up-to-date with technology and upcoming ways of living. We design by hand, maquettes and, early on, we model in 3D for your better visualisation.
We are part of a beautiful spaceship, we believe we should respect its nature and its architecture. We are able to suggest sustainable textures, systems and energies, up to a total off-the-grid shelter for those who dare.
We offer a 10year warranty on all our buildings (MAF.264570) and are registered in both french body CNOA (S19724) and english bureau of architects ARB/RIBA.
We speak English and know the French red tape inside out.
We travel wherever needed. Please get in touch with us for a talk and let us know a little bit more.
