Born in 1974 in Tangier.

Graduated in 1999 at the National School of Architecture and Landscape of Lille.

Founder of the APA Workshop (Landscape Architecture and Planning) in 2003 in Roubaix (France), he has since created a certain number of facilities open to the public (cultural centers, high schools, shops, offices, etc.).

Most of our activity is focused on equipment open to the public, both in new construction and in rehabilitation (TCE).

Timeless writing and the environmental approach in each project remain our main guidelines.

From 2005 the heritage component joins our approach. Our particular sensitivity on this subject will give us references in the matter.

Our daily challenge remains that of producing meaning. For a sustainable architecture rooted in its context, whatever the means made available to the projects.

Beyond architectural production, we are alongside our clients (mainly from the associative world) on a daily basis in support and advice.

Our approach is a vocation, an unshakeable faith in the sensitive role of the architect and his vocation to produce beauty, functionality and durability.


The pillars of our architecture.

Sustainable architecture for a sustainable city.
How to provide the buildings we construct with all the assets that ensure their viability and sustainability over time. Working on subjects including the notion of sustainability and fundamental in construction, enhancing this asset therefore became a pillar of our thinking. The use of renewable energy has been a basic condition since the early 2000s. Minimizing the energy bill and controlling it on the other hand make the operation of the equipment we design sustainable in the long term.

Each context has its own story.
Rooting projects in the historical context of the place where they are located and the second pillar of our thinking. Look for an umbilical link between the project and the site, making the two inseparable and their simultaneous reading. Bring back the idea of ​​the project as historical evidence and not an event in itself. This peaceful inscription of the architectural work in the history of the place allows the transcendence of symbolism and breaks sociological and cultural borders. This approach ensures acceptance of the project by its human environment.

Opening like an outstretched hand.
Our work affects the programming of our projects in a way that breaks down the boundaries between the inside and the outside. We very deliberately seek to make the movement and the gaze more fluid, in and through the building. The work on transparency and fluidity aims to elevate our architectural production from the production of equipment to that of places of life and exchange.


Our philosophy

  • Producing beauty with minimal funding
  • Heritage architecture with strong symbolic value
  • A civilizational contribution through timeless architecture

Each project is a new human adventure, long and exhausting “you might as well not lose focus”.
