The practice AHA Atelier Herbez Architects have won a competition organised by the town of Lieusaint (77) and the Public Development Agency (EPA) Sénart, for the construction of 85 homes in the eco district de l’Eau Vive – Living Water. This new district is dedicated to sustainable urban planning, prefaced by low consumption housing and ideas around living together.
The sketch is the origin of all architectural projects. Auctions held annually to benefit the Emergency Architects Foundation, confirm public interest in such drawings, where each exhibit reveals the genesis behind each project and the author’s intuition.
The exhibition "L’architecte. Portraits et Clichés," inaugurated on April 20, 2017, is open at the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine until September 4, 2017.
Throughout centuries, architects have been considered the greatest artists of their time. This exhibition presents a large collection of portraits and architectural images ranging from classical times to the end of the 20th century.
Our project in the city of Bagneux is highlighted in an article published online by Le Moniteur on June 2017.
As part of the conversion of the site previously operated by Sanofi, AHA renovates an office building and takes part in a housing program.
With over 80% of the site's materials being recycled, this projet is part of circular economy.
Our agency won the competition for the construction of 152 housing units in Bussy-Saint-Georges, a city in the Eastern Parisian suburbs, in collaboration with Les Nouveaux Constructeurs.
After building 178 housing units and shops in July 2016 in Thorigny-sur-Marne, the construction of our second project in this city begins!
A 12-meter height difference on the site makes this construction particularly challenging. The difficulty is to perfectly place the building on the slope.
60 Housing units divided in two buildings are planned for this project.

Each week, AHA organizes workshops, which allow us to share our different viws on architecture and ongoing projects.
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a technology that allows us to design our projects in 3D. This is revolutionizing architectural design and creation. BIM favors collaborative work through a real-time information sharing system between all people taking part in the project.
As architects, we always try to understand human perception of space better.
Olivier Herbez goes even further and wonders how science and art are linked.
His Cognitive Science Master's Degree shows his expertise and investment in the Portrait Factory project, led in collaboration with the artist Michel Paysant.
The "Portrait Factory" is an interactive workshop taking place at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs for the 2015 FIAC (Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain).
Through the "Eye Tracking" process, Michel Paysant and Olivier Herbez reinterpret the concept of portrait and can make yours live ... through eye movement.
After 16 months of constructions, the Monteynard Villa has been completed. This heavy renovation, in order to create 10 housing units, has highlighted the historical heritage of the city of Fourqueux.
