Ophelia Gisquet BA (Hons) MA

Free mind designer initially trained as an interior architect/designer with substantial experiences in Europe and UK. Ophélia worked on various scale projects: offices, private houses, residential projects for developers such as Berkley, luxurious restaurants, 5 and 4 stars hotels in Paris, Montpellier, Prague, and Budapest, but also student accommodations, BTR, and co-living development.

She reconsidered her career and went travelling for a few months in South Africa where she discovered a hugely rich source of inspiration. This experience encouraged her to push her skills in sustainable design and to question my design process. 

She developed an interest in community projects by working on art installations, public spaces, and community projects as co-founder of the Sustainable Design Studio Upcircle.

Her role as a tutor at KLC Design School gives her the opportunity to share her passion and knowledge.

Her focus is on creating sustainable projects at the service of the community. She works with not-for-profit organisations and architects, builders, and enterprises that aim to change the building industry and produce a better tomorrow for all.
