After obtaining a qualification as architectural assistant, Guillaume Wittmann continued his studies at Strasbourg’s School of Architecture. Once he had graduated, he joined the Dominique Coulon & Associés agency, where he worked as manager of public facility projects, overseeing them from bid to delivery. As he is drawn to working directly with materials, he intersperses his professional activities with small-scale personal projects that he carries out under his own steam.

Antoine Eschlimann began by studying civil engineering. He went on to enrol in Nancy’s School of Architecture, from which he graduated, and joined the Richter Architectes & Associés agency in Strasbourg, where he ended up as project manager.
