A rainy afternoon suddenly underlined by a lightening. As an architect, you have to leave room for surprise, chance, the unexpected.

Rugby in the blood. The human relationship and the values conveyed by this sport, such as the value of teamwork, the notion of sharing, listening, a sense of challenge and stress management, are deeply rooted in me.

In the wake of the values dear to rugby, I initiated the Eco-company certification of the office in particular to promote respect for people and difference.

The enrichment that nature can bring is an inexhaustible source of influence.

Whether chromatic or natural, it comes to love the daily development of the architect.

Loterie Suisse Romande, the culmination of an architecture, interior architecture and design project that perfectly illustrates the transversality of the sectors of our office.

The constraint allows us to surpass ourselves and to find solutions that are out of the ordinary while remaining within the rules.

Very active in the competition process, with societal, architectural and economic convictions, the steps to achieve production require colossal energy and are an integral part of the architect's construction. Pursuing research by drawing on all these experiences, that is the objective in our profession.
