«The sketch is the inevitable Architect’s tool of communication; it is to the point, time-proof and speaks all languages. Ask me any question, but give me a pencil to answer.»

Tom was born in San Francisco to an Architect father. His up-bringing in this fertile environment developed his imagination from an early age and produced in him the ambition to design tomorrow’s buildings. With the encouragement of his elder brother, also an architect, he enrolled at the Fontainebleau’s American School of Arts in 1985 and won the first prize, thus starting a long history with France.
He began a permanent career in France in 1989.
While employed by Aymeric Zubléna, Tom developed his interest in the design of sports buildings. He became the Design Architect of the Stade de France, a project that gave him the Silver Prize of the Académie d’Architecture of Paris. Having worked on many stadiums and sports complexes, he is now recognised as a specialist in the field and Tom is regularly invited to judge his peers’ work.
A certain number of associations in France and abroad alike gave birth to internationally renowned projects. It includes the China Executive Leadership Academy in Pudong and the D2 Tower in La Défense, Paris, in association with Agence d’Architecture A. Béchu & Associates as mandataire.
In 2005, Tom founded Atelier Tom Sheehan & Partenaires with Salah Saïdoune. The studio is devoted to designing places to live, work and entertain. It has delivered important sports complexes, remarkable offices and vast social housing programs.
Tom puts his heart into encouraging his teams giving them the time and support necessary to excel. Every project the Atelier works on is important to him. He favours the human approach and makes sure each team member can develop his or her potential to the full. Tom is en inveterate scribbler and is also famous for his sketches book.
