InTROducTIOn & summARy I obtained my Architecure Degree at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture of Toulouse in France. I studied abroad for my first year of Master as an exchange student in Hanoi, Vietnam, in the «landscape» department. Then, I did a gap year in order to do an internship in a french agency, as well as in a humanitarian studio in Rwanda, before to do my final thesis in India and France. The several classes that I had really made me realize the importance of the notion of architectural space for a creative use. Thinking a project does not stop at its physical and spatial aspect, but to all events that it will create, before, during and after its construction, on a particular landscape. In my different works, I try to value the human at the center of the project, motivated by the idea that architecture can have a social power in our society.

a therapy center for children with mental disabilities

year : 2019 - master 2, final thesis teachers : X. Leplae, E. Chapel localisation : Gandhinagar, Gujarat, INDIA


The project takes part from a social observation. It’s a question about the handicap in India and its consideration in the society. It queries also the role that the architecture can have in the therapy. The program is a therapy center for children with mental disabilities.


The project takes root in the idea that the village can be a therapeutic notion. We propose a diversity of places and atmospheres - in the form of pavillons - offered to the therapists, which can be used for different moments, activities, depending on the person or the handicap. We assemblate the pavillons to create a friendly atmosphere for the child and his therapy.


To create a center opened to the city, in order to create a link between the children and the inhabitants. To be integrate in the city center to prohibit the enclosing. The project wants to create an atmosphere of village, the same than we can find in the neighbourhoods of Gandhinagar. The project is located between a main city axis and a neighbourhood plaza.

intermediary housings - urban year : 2016 - 3th year of bachelor, semester 6 teachers: J. larnaudie, M. le ny, e. charron localisation : Lisle-Sur-Tarn, France


Intermediary housings, between communal and private cluster. 60 accomodations from T2 to T5 and a neighbourhood house and its shared cafe.


Accomodations are located in the heart of the site. Blocks are divided by private gardens and courtyards which offer shared and public spaces. Public areas (parkings and shared cafe) surround the project. The constructive system (concrete wall for the east-west wall) shifts all accomodations towards the river.


Join both riverbanks to create a single parcel, with the public bridge. Orient the project towards the inside, in order to give intimacy to the housing units. Distance cars to create pedestrian space appropriable by inhabitants and neighbours.

intermediary housings - architecture year : 2016 - 3th year of bachelor, semester 6 teachers : J. larnaudie, M. le ny, e. charron localisation : Gaillac, France


Design of a housing block with a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom apartment, located on the east riverfront, from the previous urban project.


The block is located on the riverfront and offers crossing apartments. The entrance is on the courtyard and living rooms are opened towards the water. Accomodations are sunny and pleasing thanks to an East-West orientation. Each entrance of the housing block faces the courtyard, the ones on the upper floor have an appropriable stairs.


Use serving blocks to separate night and day parts and give a materiality in the accomodation. Improve the lightness in the living room in opening it towards a private exterior space. Allow multiple self-appropriation on the terrace thanks to a post and beam structure outside. The windows design allows to identify night and day areas.

The massive opaque pedestral made in bricks on the ground floor reflects the private areas (archives and offices) that operate the public area (exhibition place, reading room, conference room). This public area is represented by the lightness of the wood and large windows.
