HOUSE of Bricoleurs was founded in London in 2023, and is active in France and the United Kingdom. It was initiated by Albane and Elliot in a spirit of collaboration.

We work with the existing: landscapes, living beings, materials, buildings and consider environmental and social justice issues to be interconnected. We explore sustainable methods of construction to support collective projects.

We value local communities and know-hows with our hands-on approach to construction.  Our expertise in material and heritage allows us to expand the role of the architect, by reclaiming a technical understanding of buildings’ life cycle with retrofit expertise and  presence on site during construction.

Albane and Elliot also lead a design unit at the Architectural Association School in London, researching improvisation, making, landscape and alternative ways of being together.

HOUSE of Bricoleurs designs with joy unique spatial experiences to increase the value of projects and realise everyone’s dreams.
