The interview

Hello Olivier, Francois, who are you?

Olivier : Passionate about sports and wide open spaces , curious about everything. A great attraction for design and of course for our friends the gardens .

François : Attracted by everything that touches the creative : drawing, architecture, cooking, music… In our team, I am the “ Geek ” and I have great difficulty leaving my screen

Your garden style?

Olivier : I am a jack of all trades and above all I do not want to confine myself to a specific atmosphere. For me each garden is unique and largely depends on the sensitivity of my clients.

François : At first glance, I am more attracted by contemporary renderings .

That said, by dint of following Olivier on his travels in Provence, I have also learned to love the more Mediterranean , more messy, more messy exteriors ...

Your favorite plants?

Olivier : the traveler's tree of course and to stay closer to us a mixture of gaura , shrub sage , verbena from buenos aires, agapanthus can only be a success.

François : Jasmine for its scents, magnolia for its beauty and grasses in general for their flexibility, which is not my case.

What do you like about each other's work?

François : What is good with Olivier is that I have the impression that he has designed and created gardens all his life . Everything he imagines, he has already done with his own hands, so from a creative but also technical point of view, he always has the answer to everything. I also like his house in the Luberon, especially when he lends it to me 😊.

Olivier : What I like about François is this ambivalent mix between his artistic and meticulous side .

He touches everything, is interested in everything around him. In addition, his fresh outlook brings real complementarity in the monitoring of our projects.
