About Architecture

Graduated from ETSAM (Madrid) and ENSAPLV (Paris) respectively, Angel Menendez and Alexandre Lahyani study together at studioMilou architecture, where they develop cultural projects such as the Carreau du Temple in Paris or the Comédie in Saint Etienne.

They create Atelier LÂME Architecture in 2013 and distinguish themselves by being winners of Europan 13, on the Bondy site. Their practice today includes many housing, office, cultural facilities and commercial architecture projects.

Atelier LÂME works on projects on a variety of scales, such as an operation for 101 housing units in Madrid (Spain), the construction of a market hall in Bouffémont (95), or the restructuring of the reception and bar of the Carreau du Temple in Paris (75). Since 2019, it has been working on a project to rehabilitate and extend the Malraux cultural centre in Verrières-le-Buisson (91) in collaboration with Cadmée. More recently, it was the winner of the competition for the construction of a multi-activity room and a youth space in Puilboreau (17). The team created within Atelier LÂME was created to bring together high-performance and complementary skills.
