Flexible and with open-ended roles, AREP’s organization is first and foremost client oriented. We tailor our teams and expertise to the expectations of our clients and to the specific nature of each project and assignment. At every scale of operation, our teams question practices and challenge conventional thinking to help our clients work towards a post-carbon future.

Responsive and agile, our employees demonstrate their multidisciplinary approach and know-how which sits at the intersection of architecture, mobility, and regional planning. With AREP, clients can be assured of design continuity across the spectrum of design disciplines involved in the development of a project.

For AREP, every new project becomes an opportunity for interaction and exchange of ideas. With humility, we are willing to learn from those who experiment with alternative new ways of doing things and who break down the boundaries associated with the traditional typologies of production. AREP considers itself as a catalyst, an incubator of this ecosystem, a laboratory fostering interaction, particularly with small structures at the forefront of ecological and social issues. To build a post-carbon future, we need to look at every source of inspiration! We have come together to create exemplary projects, which meet the current needs of its users. This commitment is reflected in five key principles that are at the heart of our design method:

  • Collaborative enthusiasm.
  • Focus on uses and people
  • Time and cultures
  • Space and forms
  • A post-carbon future driven by economic sobriety.
