To grow, the company needs to continuously challenge itself. Practices change as well as needs and desires.  Consequently, we use our experience and skills to analyze, research and innovate in every one of our creations.

We aim at applying this idea to the different aspects of our projects: architectural, environmental and social.

To achieve this, we use methods that rely on collecting and sharing knowledge such as design work groups and Vision and Architecture workshops.

As architects, we have a responsibility to build sustainable, ecological and quality buildings.  For every step of our projects, whether it concerns design, materials or time limit, we wish to excel.

One of our goals is to build quality projects with a controlled cost.

Beyond performance and innovation, we seek to attract.

Thus, each one of our projects is centered around the user.  We build unique spaces where the idea of quality of life is fundamental.

Eyesight and architecture

 

To practice architecture, new creative processes are necessary.

Olivier has studied perception of space and architecture for over ten years. He started working on Fernand Léger’s paintings at the Collège de France, analyzing eye movements during the observation of abstract shapes.

 

 

As an architect, designing means shaping an idea into a representation of the project (drawing, maquette, etc…) which allow the creation of the building.

With these research projects, we work on means of representation and wonder which role the eye plays in this process.  The eye is no longer just an observation tool but becomes also a creation tool.

We work, through our research, on understanding the mechanisms of visual perception and the different ways to represent space.
