Architects from 41 rue de neuchâtel, Genève, Switzerland

The studio aims to create architectural work of a distinct personal nature, with a strong sense of character. An open architecture, void of dogma where the design proposal draws upon its strength to define its own rules.

Projects are not developed in a constant quest for the 'new'. Recurring themes like permanence, physical presence, abstraction and a strong and direct relationship with the environment are common traits in projects.

The relationship of the envisaged solutions with the archetypes of an a priori architecture is equally a recurring theme. This approach encourages the use of simple elements that, when used as part of a composition, can be read at various levels.

These principles were applied in the development of various projects, notably a family home in Charrat, a double villa in Geneva and more recently a small residence in Givrins.
