To support the studio in its researches on materiality and resources management, the mmnk-MATIERES platform has been created in 2018. It explores the potential for the reuse of materials in the construction sector.
In 2019, the studio was selected to join the Echelle UN incubator reserved for architects involved in an entrepreneurial project with a view to developing their activity.
In April 2019, the agency joined Ticket for Change to develop his work on the re-use of construction materials, to highlight the craft work and develop it on a daily basis.

Studio

Marion Mouny and Katia Naouri founded the mmnk architecture and urban planning workshop between Paris and Zürich in 2018.

The studio’s production is defined as a territorial architecture. The projects resonate with the same attention for landscape, kow-how, materiality and uses. From the study of territories to the transformation of the built heritage, and to the design of objects, their values are declined over the scales: weaving links, revealing delicately and inserting oneself with care.

The complementary profiles of the two partners make it possible to approach each project with a broad and territorial vision, attentive to the interactions that constitute it while promoting a practice that is sensitive to details and materials. This four-handed work results in an architecture anchored in its territory composed of simple forms and devices draped in poetry.
