VURPAS ARCHITECTES

Architects from 29-31 rue Saint Georges, Lyon, France
The firm Vurpas Architectes is made up of a team of over twenty people. Daniel Briet, Brigitte Scharff, Philippe Beaujon, Damien Pontet and Julien Leclercq work with a shared desire of continuity, research and quality requirement.

The firm’s ultimate, ongoing ambition is to create places for people. It does so by establishing a dialogue with the client, from the outset, by working closely with the people who build the programme and by listening to its users. Our choice to remain a small, close-knit structure is an asset, allowing us to develop complementary expertise, keep control of all stages of the project, and remain available to the people we work with.

The second major conviction of our team is the need to create a resonance between a place and the story it tells. The firm benefits from its passion for regenerating buildings and heritage sites, and from its extensive experience and expertise to create a conversation between the project and its setting.

Finally, the firm’s environmental commitments are born out of its approach to the sites its projects are built on. The detailed observation of the place and its characteristics, combined with our architects’ technical expertise in environmental quality in buildings, naturally leads them to design and build spaces and forms that are user-friendly and benevolent.
