From an "architect-engineer" firm, Patriarche has considerably expanded its skills, its field of expertise and its culture to become a group at the service of a more agile "augmented architecture", capable of developing global responses and shaking up established practices and habits.
Today, Patriarche is recognised for its ability to combine functionality, aesthetics, environmental and societal performance in ambitious and timeless projects.
An international, agile and versatile agency.
A simple and reactive governance
As a family-owned group, Patriarche is currently managed by 7 managing partners , 10 partners and 18 associates, spread across all the agencies to ensure responsiveness and rapid. decision-making.
10 offices around the world
We are open to all cultures and can provide the right answer in very different contexts.
