An architectural project is worked out while answering a multitude of constraints, it acts to create an environment favorable for human activity. We all know that we do not only live thanks to some protéïnes which enable us to function: the quality of our life, the force of our memories, the importance of our interpersonal exchanges, the reading of the environment, all these moments wake up in us emotions.
A creative cross-pollination in the team reflects concepts that arise from a practice of intuitive observation and generosity of approach. Our studio is dedicated to creating a dynamic workplace where several artisans are working together. Our 38 years of experience allow us to work in several fields such as residences, office, and commercial buildings, as well as museums and galleries.
We have realized constructions in the following countries: Belgium, the Caribbean, Germany, Greece, France, Great Britain, Italy, Maroc, The Netherlands, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United States.

“Top to bottom: endless sky, commanding trees, house, and wild vines. The home humbly nestles into this order.
The entire length of the house opens up to the expanse of the vineyard before your eyes. Yet a lintel overhanging the plate glass window marks the border between homely serenity and the melee of vines.
Space is not distance, it’s infinity.” Baptiste Erpicum
