Philéas today


Philéas is a «whole programme» agency. It addresses transport infrastructure, technical buildings, schools, housing and company headquarters with the same attention to quality and modularity of spaces, views and lighting.
Generally, the agency seeks to transform technical constraints into adaptable value-added and sets up implicit interactions between its buildings and the city by a play of reflections, refractions, perspectives and openings that transform them into contemporary objects at the crossroads of architecture, art and design.
Atelier Phileas has a team of 25 members: 3 associate architects, 18 architects, 1 interior designer, 1 head of communication, 1 office manager and 1 assistant.
All the projects are developped with BIM process.
Sustainibility is integrated into the conception process, thanks to the 2 PLAN02 ingineers.
Since 2008, Anne-Charlotte has also been the consultant architect to the MIQCP (Interministerial Mission for the Quality of public buildings) and Julien is a member of the Councils of State Architects (seconded to the Haute Vienne).
