DESIGN AND ENGINEERING STUDIES & PRODUCTION

Ateliers Puzzle provides ENGINEERING AND DESIGN SERVICES for cultural and artistic projects.
From primary sketches to project execution plans, our team draws on its understanding of artistic creation to supply the best solution for each project, in line with the artist’s intent and the project’s technical feasibility.
By its very nature, every project we implement is a unique prototype, so we analyse and consider regulatory requirements and ensure compliance with them without hindering the creative process.

 

As a GENERAL CONTRACTOR, we can handle each stage of the technical production process including 3D site surveys, engineering, fabrication and set-up. Our team ensures continuity and consistency every step of the way, from conceptual design reports to the choice of materials, pre-dimensioning, prototypes, workshop fabrication, logistics and set-up teams.
