Brunerie & Irissou Architects agency was born in 1954. Since then, it’s constantly renewed between tradition and innovation.

The agency now has three Brunerie’s generations (Henri, Pierre and Thomas), as well as association of brilliant personalities : Jean-François Irissou, Guillaume Saunier and David Perez who maintain same continuity and agency’s architectural philosophy : "Listening, rigor and control".

OUR PHILOSOPHY

COMMITMENTS

Reputation of agency is based on our rigorous and reasoned architectural approach, and on our desire to control budget and deadlines at every project’s step, till work’s delivery.

We help our clients achieve their goals, and want to build trust with them based on our work quality and strength of our commitment.

FOUNDATIONS

We founded our association on belief that built environment's quality improves social, family and professional relationships and contributes to raising level - material and spiritual - of our lives.

Our buildings answer our customers’ fundamental objectives. Beyond this, they're part of context dominated by place (urban or rural environment, climate) and moment (history and culture).

We pay the greatest attention to this context.

Inspiration

We refute style, and seek in great historical currents a methodological nature's input :

- classical architecture reveals constant concern for clarity and precision in spaces’ organization, using systematically scheduling's notion which has close resonances with our frame's handling.

- our approach is guided by timeless values as expressed in vernacular tradition : utility, economy of means, adaptation to context.

DESIGN

Each building is unique. We are questioning ourselves for any new project. This implies a return to principles regarding general organization, frame, envelope and exchanges of energy, technical integration ... Our approach is freedom and allows integration of these changing benchmarks as projects move forward.

Environmental awareness and energy performance demand give new impetus to our work today.

Construction

Building's world, which is believed to be not very evolutionary, invents constantly new construction processes. We are fully aware that everything we design and draw is ultimately produced, transported and implemented by industry.

We see this as an opportunity : to use these immense assembly possibilities to meet today's new requirements, particularly for environment respect and energy performance, while taking into account speed requirements and efficiency characterizing our time. This is our action principle.

FUTURE IN BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an approach based on building's overall modelling in all aspects (architectural, technical, structural, economic, etc.). It also makes it possible to centralize information produced by different actors around a same model : communication between partners is more efficient and future building's representation is more faithful.

This transition to BIM started in 2015 in Brunerie & Irissou Architectes agency. Currently, 50% of our agency's architects have been trained at Revit and we can answer our customer’s and building owners’ growing demands.
