philosophy sums up in 3 words: Tradition, innovation,
nature and by necessity, the architecture is tradition,
from the past to the present and from the present to the
It is process evolutionary succeeded from past and
present developments, consequence of the means and
methods of the times and places where it enrolls.
Indeed, every age possesses its own means and
Heiress of traditions, acquirements and sustained
solutions, the architecture takes different times in
charge, reinterpret them, pursues them, even transcend
them, otherwise it loses a part of its potential and its
An immobile present, that only trace itself or repeat
mechanically the past , loses its creativeness, its
vitality, its global intelligence.
However, if it rejects it or forget it, there is an
unbalance, impoverished in its shapes and its mind!
It is why our approach considers the past or the
sustained acquirement as part important of the
foundations of the present.
in the other hand, some projects will take all the
possible interest technically under modern shapes:
Airports, universities, museums, eco energetic
Being a matter of the public domain, they are among the
first signs of a society that advances.
The individual habitat, except some exceptions, will
break these habits slowly.
What does the innovation mean if it doesn't add
quality to our life?
It is in this vision that since 1980 we are interested to the
lasting development. We prefer the ecological adjective
since it has a more holistic range, less chilly to say
the true things of the true way and for a long time! For
us the ecology... and since the beginning... is not
a fashion, but a way of thought,
even though it is relatively very rare to have the
opportunity to draw a really ecological project.
The global conception of the building as eco energetic
system, with synergy in himself and with the environment,
not adding to the pollution, even adding to the life, is
the ideal of the ecological architecture!
Ventilation, natural air-conditioning, solar walls or reflecting according to the season, integrated

buried, or groups of buildings that specifically disposed

The 3D modeling by computer:
Since its apparition in architecture in the
beginning of the 80's, one of the most interesting
possibilities of the CAD applied in
architecture, we saw it being the 3D modeling, either
the creation of the virtual building, rather than the
simple drawing in 2D!
And in fact, the most suitable architectural software
packages today are leaded to this fact!
Improved communication between architect and customer, better
technical documents, more complete coordination,
calculation and take offs facilitated, formal or
aesthetic harmonization, visual help to marketing
and a lot more possibilities with the help of a computer in
Since 1995, we draw practically all of our projects in
3D modeling processing.
project is the fruit of a shared passion:
customer and the architect become a team, a momentary
marriage, where the straightforward, clear and
exhaustive dialogue would be the rule. All this within a
respectful business relation. We listen, we orient. You
listen, you orient on your turn. So weaves itself as
much as the personal and business relation the project.
Some steps, meetings, revisions and production, plans,
estimates and other documents finally accomplished...
And then the building takes shape and lives!
