Who we are ? SUD architects
Created in France, SUD architects is made of a multidisciplinary team of 125 collaborators based in Paris, Lyon, Warsaw, Beirut and Jeddah around the professions of urban planning, architecture and interior design.
Reimagining history and spaces, designing sustainably, innovating with sobriety and durability.
SUD architects distinguishes itself through the care given to the realization and the rehabilitation of all the places that make up the city : offices, housing, shops & leisure, aquatic centres, hospitals & medical-social centres, industries & infrastructures.
The agency is particularly active in complex multifunctional projects with urban or industrial revitalisation issues.
SUD architects is a state of mind.
The agency approaches its projects with the values of expertise, innovation and a sense of humanity.
It anchors its thinking in a concrete analysis, thought out in the long term through the creation of "places of experiences" where the different scenes of the evolution of uses are played out. It is (re)questionned with each project in order to go beyond the command.
The architectural responses of SUD architects are shaped by the inspiring complexity of a world on the move, the duty to be agile in the face of constraints, architectural convictions, environmental commitments and the desire to adapt them contextually to the international context.
and architectural coordination
Creating the city of tomorrow means taking on the history of a place and questioning its identity, its uses and its flows.
Above all, it means combining the past, present and future by reconnecting years and neighbourhoods, optimising distances, mixing urban functions while favouring the quality of public spaces.
The urban planners of SUD architects are committed to (re)creating living spaces and bringing a benevolent and sustainable reflection to the city.
The urban question developed by SUD architects is a preamble to all architectural thinking.
The evolutivity of the urban concepts integrated from the architectural design stage opens up the field of possibilities.
For SUD architects, thinking in terms of time means considering the different life cycles of buildings, looking forward to their possible evolution and integrating the notions of reconversion and reversibility on a neighbourhood scale.
The Garage Citroën in Lyon and the Hotel Raffles Europejski in Warsaw are among the agency's emblematic patrimonial conversions.
Tomorrow's urban and architectural programs require flexibility, adaptability and creativity : agility.
Founded in 1986 in Lyon by 7 partners, SUD architects became international in the 1990s, expanding its activity in Central Europe and the Middle East. Agencies were gradually established in Warsaw in 2006, Paris in 2012, Beirut in 2017 and Jeddah in 2020.
Over the years, and in order to respond to increasingly complex projects requiring complementary expertise, SUD architects opened its doors to new partners in France and abroad.
Today, 14 partners guarantee the continuity and renewal of the agency's overall creation. Among the group's emblematic projects in France, the world headquarters of the SEB group, the conversion/rehabilitation of the historic Citroën garage in Lyon, the ZAC des Batignolles in Paris. Internationally, the Résidence des Pins in Beirut, Lebanon, the Raffles Europejski Hotel in Warsaw and the conversion of the Manufaktura industrial site in Lodz, Poland, as well as the rehabilitation of five buildings in the historic district of Jeddah.
