After meeting at the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture and collaborating during almost five years within a renowned Parisian architecture cabinet, Olivier Amat and Laurent Saint-Val created Amat & Saint-Val Architects firm in 2014.
A common vision of architecture and a perfect complementarity of skills and knowledge are the very essence of their collaboration. Each partner has developed its own skills, creating a synergy and a mastery of the construction process, from the draft to the realisation.
