Christophe’s attention to detail and craftmanship pervade his work and life. At TAS, he loves to get up close with construction, exploring ideas with contractors, while his love for sailing boats led him to build a 16-foot yawl. He is happiest when in his workshop making furniture, experimenting. This attention to detail is what drew Christophe to study architecture at the Bartlett, UCL, before joining a renowned firm of architects in Chiswick specialising in high-end residential projects. To seek a more complete understanding of how construction methods can be influenced by good design, he established a design-and-build company, a theme he encourages the TAS team to explore.
