This portfolio highlights a selection of academic and professional work realized over the past 7 years. Graduated with a Master’s degree (2015) and an European Architect Licensure (2016) from the Architecture School of Versailles I lately had the opportunity to work with MU architecture (Paris) and Studio GA (Sydney). Thanks to these experiences I continued to increase different design and construction skills working on numerous project typologies and phases. Passion for architecture pushed me to travel around the world, discovering different cultures and ways to do architecture. I am always seeking new knowledge through travelling, meeting new people, reading, designing and practicing.

physiotherapy clinic 110 sqm - $200K

medical facility - Sydney, Australia

schematic design to site supervision - winter to summer 2017 junior project manager - Studio GA

This project is the refurbishment/alteration of a previous restaurant into a physiotherapy clinic & sports injury centre. It is located inside a small commercial centre in one of the northern suburbs of Sydney. With a limited floor space and only one facade with natural light coming through, our intention is to work on transparancies and light structures and to include the privacy matters needed for medical purposes. One structural polycarbonate wall acts as a spine and separates the treatment rooms from the common areas. It holds full-height translucent sliding doors that provide a diffuse light and intimacy inside the rooms, while creating fluid paths inside the clinic.



38 housings 2 350 sqm - 3,7M€

intermediate housing - Chevilly-Larue, France

competition to design development - winter to summer 2016 junior project manager - MU architecture

The first intention is to create a link between the Anatole France Development Zone and the neighboring pavilions. The work on alignments, heights and volumes brings a smooth transition between those two spaces. A porosity settles in the plot’s heart and the residence’s life overflows on the street. Beyond the horizontal sliding, the offsets also bring a vertical rhythm in the project. They clear views, lights, green roof terraces and keep the apartments away from each other. The green spaces take many forms: shared gardens, south-oriented private gardens, green terraces and roofs. The green structure offers uses, atmospheres and a continuity of the biodiversity. The apartments, numerous on the ground floor, decrease on the upper floors to the benefit of planted or private terraces. The density becomes lighter, the volumes are released. This imbrication of green roofs highlights the landscape continuity from the surrounding gardens to the heart of the project.

municipal technical center 2 715 sqm - 4,75Mâ‚Ź

municipal facility - Morsang-sur-Orge, France competition - spring 2016 junior project manager - MU architecture

The technical center works as a set of connected entities, a composition of different volumes. Whether on the courtyard or on the pedestrian walkway, the structure extends outside and offers protection. The wooden structure is part of a sustainable development approach, the one of the dry process. A municipal technical center needs large spaces, inside and outside, in direct connection. The need of clear and simplified accesses completes these requirements. We designed this project as a linear building, between a lower courtyard and a high street. Working as the spine of the project, the pedestrian street is the heart of exchanges. It serves the different rooms from the entresol to the first level. Moreover, the numerous voids slicing the project are filled with staircases, creating a link between the low court and the high street. Thus, everyone is free to move easily from one space to another, according to his requirements and schedules.

50 housings 3 600 sqm - 5,1Mâ‚Ź

social housing - Tours, France

competition - summer 2014 architectural project assistant - MU architecture

The site is located at the intersection between two major axes of the Monconseil Development Zone. Thus, the intention is to work on the articulation of different scales and contexts in order to express a balance and give the same qualities to all spaces: private, close neighbourhood, collective, urban public. The richness of the sober volume resides in a grid which reveals different depths (loggias, transparency of angles). The facade is animated according to the interior uses and the housing units are directly projected towards the distant views of the gardens.

public facilities & housing - Grangent, France diploma project - summer 2016 with Jacques Longo

The natural reserve of the Loire gorges reveals a surprising microcosm. Once a canyon landscape, the territory brutally changes in 1957 when the Grangent dam engulfs a landscape made of fields, houses, factories and a railway. Nowadays, the dam regulates the water level in order to produce the necessary electricity and thus creates three temporalities. The project seeks to give another vision of the site and glorifies this ever-changing landscape. According to the temporality and the water level fluctuations, uses and programs appear and reveal a link between past and present.





Water level : 419 NGF.

Water level : 411.5 NGF (- 7.5m)

Water level : 404 NGF (-15m)

Tourists are coming to the beach of Saint-Victor to enjoy many activities such as games on the floating platforms. On the Loire, motorboats and sailboats navigate under the sun. A cultural center, with exhibition halls and laboratories, faces the mineral horizon. Inside, a path takes the visitor to an underwater observatory. The cultural center is the extension of the village center, located higher on the cliff and designed to federate a scattered countryside.

The southern part of the site is revealed : the floating platforms become the artists studios roofs, invited in Grangent for an annual workshop. A new route appears for a few months, it’s then possible to discover the former landscape and stroll from the beach to the cultural center by walking on the old railway.

Due to a draining imposed by the State, the entire site and railway are now accessible. Many visitors flock to the site which momentarily becomes a regional attraction. At the end of the railway, an open-air stage reveals itself near the dam. It takes advantage of the acoustics and the mystery of the place.

public facility - Clermont-Fd, France second year of Master - winter 2015 with Jacques Longo « Built Climates » : experimental studio under the direction of Philippe Rahm

Nowadays what you cannot find on the internet are the physical experiences, those of human relationships and land. The project’s aim is to use the non-relocatable strengths of the Auvergne territory, balneology and cheese’s expertise, in order to revitalize and expand the traditional activities of the Virgin Megastores. The geological heritage of Auvergne has different properties. First, it is an excellent fertilizer for the local cultivated lands. The grass becomes the first link in the development of the Auvergne’s cheese and gives the taste to each « PDO ». Then, the rainwater is naturally mineralized in contact with volcanic rocks. This process is reproduced in the project’s roof which acts as a second ground. Therefore, various uses appear in relation with the purity of water. Gravity allows the water to spread from the top to the bottom and the thermal stratification clarifies the different levels and uses.

along the canal

public facilities & housing - Kyoto, Japan first year of Master - summer 2014 international exchange program with the Kyoto Institute of Technology

The site is located in the historic neighbourhood of Fushimi, south of Kyoto. The sake distilleries make it a touristic place but it is also a largely residential zone. The intention is to improve the relationship with the canal and mix different generations in the neighbourhood. The program is divided in three parts corresponding to a particular scale: child, community, family. In the childcare center, the roof protects and frames the views over the canal. The courtyard is isolated from the street and creates a comforting and secure space for children. The community center is thought as a privileged public space. Each box contains a separate program that corresponds to different people sharing this indoor / outdoor space. In the housings, near the canal, each family member has his own space. Hidden from the street, large openings are canal-sided, around the loggia.





in the shade of trees

public facility - Bures sur Yvette, France first year of Master - winter 2014 with Jacques Longo & Maxime Trouilleux

Located within the «Plateau de Saclay», the Paris-South XI’s university is in the heart of the Grand Paris project. Our programs analysis on site revealed a striking reality: the presence of microcosms separated by an abundant nature, almost wild. This observation gave us the desire to unify the actors of this territory: inhabitants, students and researchers. The creation of an incubator seemed obvious to combine these three complementary profiles. This project takes place at the junction of these entities. It is respectfull of the contextual elements and works as an analogy of the glade by offering an incubator in the shade of trees. Thus, the ambiguity between inside and outside is voluntarily permeable. The project is closely related to public space. An internal street articulates the different elements of the incubator: auditoriums, Start-Ups, fiscal space, brasserie, lounge area...

from the inside to the outside public facility - Corent, France

second year of Bachelor - summer 2012

In the heart of Corent, a dormitory village invaded by cars, the project fits into the interstices of existing buildings. The first intention is to create a transversal axis in this village built along a cliff. The buildings creates the path. Simultaneously floors and roofs, they form a promenade between the bottom of the village and the nearby cliff and a place dedicated to the inhabitants. The agora is located on the heights. It overlooks the town. Treated as a cave carved into the mountain, a patio brings a zenithal light inside, in the middle of the forest. The associative space is located further down. There, the idea of the patio is used in double height. The polycarbonate highlights the heart of the village, now dedicated to inhabitants. The project is structured as an ÂŤintersectionÂť that connects streets, built or natural spaces and also neighbours, friends and inhabitants.
