Amelia Tavella Architectes

Amelia Tavella runs her own practice, Amelia Tavella Architectes, based in Aix-en-Provence, France. She was born in Corsica, where she saw the beauty of the landscape as an opening to all horizons. In the Choiseul Ville de Demain awards, she was described as the rising star of French architecture. Her architectural signature, tied to the sensuality of noble, natural materials, is the mark of a constant work on the memory of places, particularly in the Mediterranean.

This creative process is illustrated by the studio’s various projects, including the Convent Saint-François and Ecole A Strega in Corsica, the Château du Seuil, the Cultural center Edmond Simeoni in Lumio, the Citadelle d’Ajaccio, the Simone Veil School in Villeurbanne, the Conservatory Henri Tomasi with Rudy Ricciotti, and the Fossil Building at Cabriès School featured by Archello. Amelia Tavella Architectes also recently won the competition to build Château de Nalys in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the new vineyard of the Guigal family.
