Atelierworkshop was founded in 2000 by Cecile Bonnifait and William Giesen based on a duality of thought and language as a working process. Both trained architects respectively in France and New Zealand, they each have different and diverse architectural experience in various parts of the world that combine professional work and research. Their approach is orientated towards reconnecting people with a physical reality, a territory, its history and a cultural context.

“Our architecture seeks to reveal the landscape and the environment through innovation and common sense. Our projects are developed from a concern for forming one body with the site.
Without compromising on design, we put priority on finding sustainable solutions.
It is within this dynamic that our team at atelierworkshop creates contemporary architecture and designs”.
