CUT architectures
Our practice as a 4 hands design studio started in 2005 and we founded our company CUT architectures in 2008.
CUT, 3 letters standing for our aim to contrast deeply with the conformist Parisian Architectural practice and the expected positions and trends.
Breaking the boundaries between architecture, urbanism, interior design & art we are taking the inherent qualities of every of these fields in order to initiate inspiring hybrid projects.
We don’t make hierarchical distinctions between an art installation, a piece of furniture, a shop, a flat, a set design, a house or a building and put the same effort with the same process: we first search for the optimal plan layout and the most effective section and we then implement the material which is the key to a project for us. Through material we create, reinterpret, divert, innovate.
Stainless steel, expanded metal or wood take part of the esthetic aspect of a building as much as they are important for their inherent properties.
This close relation to the material, the building elements and building processes are the guaranty of our knowledge of construction costs and the keeping of a budget.
We have a strong knowledge in project management from our former professional careers which we used and developed for our own practice. We are working on projects for municipalities and public housing developers.
In 2012 we teamed up with Melbourne based March studio to developp the Damir Doma shop in Paris. After the opening of café Coutume Aoyama in Tokyo in March 2014 we continued our collaboration with Baycrews Co Ltd in Japan with two more café Coutume in Osaka and Futakotamagawa. Late April will open next to Omotesando in Tokyo our first collaboration with Baycrews for an apparel shop, l’Échoppe. A third PNY hamburger restaurant in Paris Marais opened in early April and we are currently developing offices for the Galeries Lafayette Group in Paris, a scenography for the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), a french boulangerie in Sao Paulo (Brasil), a Thaï cocktail bar and an oyster bar in Paris.
