Contemporary Architecture Practice
Archi5 – Practice Information
archi5 was founded in 2003 as the result of its founders’ common studio experience and the approach they share towards architecture. A context-based approach to projects is key: the site, the programme, the social and cultural challenges are all examined, analysed, compared and transformed into questions. Projects offer a dynamic and comprehensive response to these issues to the highest standard, which has come to be archi5’s trademark. This approach is visible, legible in every building.
archi5 has a staff of 35 people working in Paris and Warsaw. Founding partners Jacques Sebbag, Bernard Guillien, Laurent Boudrillet, Thomas Dryjski and Anne Pezzoni gained experience in
architecture in Paris-Belleville and in Henri Ciriani’s studio, him being a forerunner of the modern trend. This is where they understood how the architectural approach prevails over formal dogma. They all have an urban vision and they pool their common experience in a major project.
The studio welcomes new talent as a way for mutual enrichment.
