Jean-Patrick has his origins in the French Jura and in the heart of the canton of Fribourg. He has worked in London and Paris for Gérard Barrau’s Architral, one of the world’s leading players in retail architecture. His portfolio includes global design developments and conceptualisation of major brands, such as Fnac, Lancel and Sephora.

He joined a-rr. in 2002, employing his expert knowledge for the design of spaces containing retail, tertiary use, gastronomy and hotels, medical-social institutions, as well as for the development of public spaces in general. Convinced that design is not just about good looks, Jean-Patrick uses his expert knowledge in spatiality, details, materiality and visual communication to develop concepts that are adapted to each site in order to value a brand, to personalise a place and to always provide a global and unique experience.
