Sébastien Segers Architect
Sébastien Segers was born in 1972 in Bujumbura (Burundi) of Belgian and French nationalities and spent his childhood in East and West Africa. Back in Europe, he studied architecture at the Paris Belleville School of Architecture with architect Bernard Huet and simultaneously followed the apprenticeship of his mentor, architect-scientist Pierre Debeaux.
Sébastien Segers began his career in 1998 with the architect Jean Nouvel in Paris then joined the Australian designer Marc Newson in London in 2000. Associate architect of the designer for a decade, he developed architectural and design projects, including the Lever House restaurant in the eponymous 1953 landmark tower, the Azzedine Alaïa boutique and the First Lounges of Australian Qantas airlines
The polymath created his architectural firm in Paris in 2003. He is highly regarded for combining rigorous design principles with a broad range of cultural references in his work.
Today, Segers carries out architectural and interior design projects for discerning residential and hospitality clients in Europe as well as in Japan, Australia and the USA. His involvement ranges from large-scale projects such as Greenwich West - the interior design of a 170-unit high-rise building in Manhattan - to high-end renovation and heritage projects. He is also called upon to partner on special projects with other accomplished designers and artists such as Jasper Morrison and Daniel Buren.
Sculptural geometry, intuitive use of space, and exquisitely refined craftsmanship characterize each of his projects. His architectural projects consistently reinterpret classics and express simple elegance and reconciled materiality, with the ambition to achieve serene and optimistic spaces. Through the reinterpretation of classical ideas in his projects, Segers attempts to achieve a sense of harmony using formal and elegant design principals and refined materiality.
