Karine Herman, Jérôme Sigwalt. K Architectures Sigwalt Herman

K Architectures Sigwalt Herman, a firm founded by Karine Herman and Jérôme Sigwalt. Throughout 2001, the agency's work was deployed in the Pavillon de l'Arsenal in Paris. In 2002, K Architectures led the "Museum of the Dunes" team in the final phase of the international competition to design the future Grand Egyptian Museum.

In 2004, Karine Herman won the AJAP (Albums of Young Architects and Landscape Architects) and part of the agency's work was exhibited at the Palais de la Porte Dorée. Since 2005, K Architectures associates and their team have taken on a wide range of projects of different sizes and types: housing, public cultural buildings (theaters, multimedia libraries), educational institutions (colleges, schools), urban, rural, or heritage sites.

Although the activities have so far been developed exclusively in France, the partners of K Architectures intend to export these principles. For the moment, they can't get enough of the diversity of national environments. Harmony matters little to them if the context is eloquent.
