We are an architectural firm based in Lausanne, Switzerland. We believe that a new vision for the future is possible, notably through the decarbonation of architecture, the development of new knowledge around regenerative resources and finally disruption and considering the new space needs of users. This ambition affects the urban space as well as workplaces, industry and the domestic sphere of the house. 

Whatever the scale (urban planning or architecture), our approach is resolutely contextual, by setting up spaces that encourage exchange, cohesion and connection with the environment in the broadest sense of the term. We work in particular on territorial projects, innovative workspaces, contemporary habitat, as well as experimental research and installations.

Constantly surrounded by specialists, they cultivate a multidisciplinary work, both with engineers and with philosophers, photographers, designers or scenographers.

Thanks to international friendships forged during various workshops, trips or conference cycles, the office has been enriched with different visions won from all over the world. Without borders or cultural boundaries, skills are exchanged, developed, shared and crystallized in the different projects.

We are a certified B Corporation since 2024, committed to meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

The Kunik de Morsier office was founded in 2010 in Lausanne, Switzerland, by Valentin Kunik and Guillaume de Morsier.
