Kardham Architecture, the 9th French agency in the latest ranking of d'a magazine

February 2021

Each year, the magazine d'Architectures publishes a table of architectural firms classified according to their declared turnover (here, 2019). Kardham goes from 10th to 9th place!


With a team of 90 architects and over 40 years of experience, Kardham Architecture is an integrated agency that bases its added value in its ability to coordinate interdisciplinary exchanges and to reconcile them in all dimensions of a project. , while respecting a rigorous and virtuous approach. Our teams work on different types of structures which have in common being complex and multi-business projects in many sectors, such as health, housing, major facilities such as airports, stadiums, shopping centers or office buildings.

Because we are plural - several professions, several activities, several know-how, several skills - our specificity and our freedom to design as architects are enhanced, protected and preserved. We work with our owner clients to reduce the impact in terms of energy consumption and carbon footprint. Our R&D is dedicated to understanding subjects such as the construction of more efficient and sustainable buildings, and the majority of our projects are labeled around the major Environmental Quality standards (HQE, BREEAM, LEED). The circular economy is a subject of the future: the future of construction lies in the ability to reuse materials using tools that provide the link between design, manufacture, and the traceability of materials and their uses.

Technological innovations in the building make it possible to create more efficient objects. For 10 years, the group has relied on a BIM approach, with the aim of improving the traceability of components throughout the building design and life cycle. The synergy of these different professions, this collective intelligence, makes it possible to bring as much value as possible to the service of our clients' projects.
