Franklin Azzi

An architect in the heart of Paris.


In the space of 12 years, Franklin Azzi has achieved considerable recognition through his constant rigour and discipline, adaptability and inter-disciplinary approach. An architect, urban architect, interior designer and designer, this passionate yet pragmatic man embraces complex projects that combine history, industry, heritage, restoration, adaptation and invention. His projects are part-creation, part-metamorphosis and include the Tripostal arts centre and Saint-Sauveur train station in Lille, Imprimerie Mame in Tours and the Fine Art School in Nantes. Franklin Azzi also founded the Nouvelle AOM collective which will oversee the renovation of the Tour Montparnasse in Paris. At Beaupassage, the architect focused on the facades of the buildings, retaining the soul of the site while endowing it with a bold yet sensitive new identity.
