Based between Paris and Bordeaux, Atelier Boteko was founded by Léa Casteigt and Alessandro Baiguera. Both co-founders are architects and trained respectively at the Bordeaux School of Architecture and the Venice School of Architecture. Casteigt and Baigeura met studying abroad in Porto, Portugal, where they were taught by renowned architects including Álvaro Siza Vieira, Eduardo Souto de Moura and Fernando Távora. They were deeply influenced by the approach of their Portuguese teachers: combining traditional architecture with contemporary methods. Before founding Atelier Boteko in 2012, they worked in several Parisian agencies. Their work ranges from apartment renovations to residential and commercial real estate projects.
