Aurélie HACHEZ (1983) graduated from ISA St. Luc and ISACF La Cambre in Brussels in 2008. She founded AHA, her own architectural office, in April 2012 and since then her practice has focused on designing projects of different scales including furniture design, interior renovation or the construction of new spaces and buildings. Her projects feed from a site-sensitive approach that leads her to take advantage of the different contexts in her thought process. Her attention is constantly directed toward spatial experimentation, concern for proportions, light, and respect for existing materials. Her work on projects is characterized and formalized by the definition of details, objects, and combinations of materials which are worked out through relevant construction techniques. These defining choices unify each project and gives them their particular character and identity. AHA is also interested in larger-scale urban and architectural projects. She believes in a collaborative approach that leads her to work with artists, craftsmen and other architects, and to participate in international architecture competitions.
