Daniel Grosso

Architect HES - Associate

Attracted by drawing and graphic design, he discovered with interest the world of construction by accompanying his father on various construction sites during his adolescence. Curious to explore the interaction of these two worlds, he began an apprenticeship as a building draughtsman at the age of 17 in the Lausanne architectural firm of F.Brugger - E.Catella - E.Hauenstein, which had a staff of about twenty and which, several years later, became the CCHE firm.

During this rich practical experience, he became passionate about this field and decided to make it his profession. He decided to continue his studies at the HES in Geneva, where he obtained his diploma in 2000 at the age of 25, with honours and punctuated by the prize of the professional association of architects.

The same year, he returned to his training office and later in 2007 he became Technical Director and Associate Director in 2011.

Since then, he has been committed alongside his associates to guarantee the perpetuation of this magnificent human adventure whose trust and satisfaction of our clients have allowed its growth and development throughout French-speaking Switzerland and beyond to Porto, with more than 250 employees.

Investing for a long time in professional training, it has initiated with its associates, the first and only scholarship for apprentice draftsmen in the canton of Vaud, which is delivered each year to CFC discounts.

Married and father of two boys, he divides his daily life between his professional activity and his leisure time with his family.
