  • Description

    Bonjour ! / Hello ! / Hei !

    I'm Léo, I'm a young french architect currently living in Paris and working with renovation projects.

    I've been a Workawayer two times in my life : in Norway - where I experienced gardening and renovation in a cute old traditional farm in a fantastic scenery; and in Faroe Islands -where I participated to a small construction project in a house right by the Norwegian Sea.
    These trips were unforgettable. Not only have they brought me new knowledge and skills, but also made me travel to astonishing landscapes with cool people from all around Europe.

    I want to try to link these social and natural travelling experiences with my work, in order to build bridges between theory (design) and practice (construction).
    I genuinely want to bring my architectural practice to your projects, as I would like my stay at your place to teach me a more concrete and on-site building experience. Indeed, I believe that a good architect is an architect who knows how to build.

    I've had the opportunity to improve my architectural knowledge in different design offices in France and in Norway, but there is still a lot to learn :
    I'm interested in ecological construction, simple joining methods, environmental-friendly and innovative materials, respectful architecture, traditional knowledge, or anything that I could implement into future exciting projects.

    Apart from this professional side, architecture is above all a real passion for me.
    I would say that I'm someone who is very motivated, curious, organized and creative !
    I like meeting people, learning multiple things about daily life, languages, geography, food and so on ! :)

    I'm here on Workaway to open my mind and adapt myself to your daily life :)))

    I'm really looking forward to this new experience!

  • More details about your skills

    I am really motivated to learn everything I can !

    As a young architect, I would say that I am creative and rationnal. Artistic and realistic. I'm not very strong (haha, my thin and skinny body doesn't help), but I like tinkering and building things, thinking on new projects... I also like gardening, cooking, photography...

    For example, I like inventing new solutions, building primitive tree houses with friends, making architectural cardboard models for my studies, decorating and renovating rooms... In my previous wandering, I have been working on a big construction site during my studies, built a traditional norwegian shelter, constructed a new elevated wooden terrace, placed posts into the ground as part of a public forest renovation plan...

    To sum it up, I'm not a professional construction worker, but I have a bunch of fun experiences in my bag and I'm eager to help you with your projects :)

    More details about my language interests
    My mother tongue is french, and I'm fluent in english as I've spent one year and a half working and studying abroad. I have some basic knowledge of norwegian too since I've lived in Norway. I'd love to start learning a new language, what interests me the most in a language is the pronounciation, the sounds, the dialects and all the fun absurd expressions that a language can offer.

    French

  • What else ...

    I'm open to discover any new country or new place that could offer me new landscapes, new climates, new cultural discoveries...

    Travelling by train is the best option for me, it's both ecological and pleasant. For me, any country in Europe is easily accessible through the rail network in some hours or a couple of days.

    Rail transports is also one of my passions and I would love to share it with you :))
