Côme Ménage, Founder and Design Principal (AIA, CPHD, MsC. Urban Design)
Côme is convinced that the directions that we follow are totally tied to the information we have at hand at the time of decision. In this sense, he creates read and equip it with processes that generates quick multiple analysis at an early stage of each project. Sustainability is an idea that can be integrated at reasonable cost anywhere only if taken into consideration from the very beginning of a project. It’s a natural fit for him to use European sustainable building strategies on existing and new buildings. He studied Architecture in Paris at the Ecole (nsa) Paris Val de Seine and in Berlin at the Universitat der Kunst (UdK). He moved to New York City from France in 2009. Passionate about the processes that produce the evolution of cities and its inhabitants. In this sense, he proceeded quickly to work with historical and creative renovations in the US.
