Charles-Edmond Henry is the founder of Studio Henry. A native of Paris, he graduated in 2007 from the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture (ESA), where he currently teaches. He was awarded the European 8 International Architecture competition in 2006.
He began his architectural career in collaborations with renowned architectural firms such as Rafael Viñoly Architects (New York, USA), François Roche : R&Sie (Paris, France), MADA Spam (Shanghai, China) and SANAA (Paris office, France).
Charles-Edmond and his team invent conceptual and graphic spaces tinged with colors and poetry. Their work focuses on materials, scales and boundaries. Materials are invented and reinvented, spaces are opened and illuminated, borders are blurred to allow light and nature to enter.
Between architecture, interior design and design, Studio Henry’s work creates unique and tailor-made spaces, both in their usages and materiality. Charles-Edmond Henry is committed to keeping an open mind and is interested in the project process in all its forms, from object design to large-scale projects.
Today, Studio Henry work on major projects worldwide. Japanese brand A Bathing Ape commissioned them to imagine a new architectural universe turned towards women for their flagship in Tokyo, Japan. Mexican hotel group Grupo Habita has entrusted them with the design of their next hotel in the Art District, Los Angeles, USA.
The Studio is currently in charge of developing Zadig & Voltaire’s global architecture concept.
