Home. No matter the location, the size and the way you live, Home is the place where you feel the most comfortable on earth and that reflects your personality. Whether you want to optimize space, change atmosphere and decoration or evaluate the potentials of a property before investing, seeking help of an architect should become a reflex. Let’s simplify the way clients and architects interact to promote Architecture and give an opportunity to young architects to express their talent.
In summary, what is your “Made on Coboat” project idea (max. 3 sentences)?
Nowadays, people pay more attention to their home, spend more money to improve their interiors and way of living. But most of the time the architect is out of the game whereas his own apprehension of space could add great value to their projects. ID’Archi is an innovative digital platform that (re)connects talented architects to potential clients that will benefit from their designs in their daily life.
How much of your project can you realistically achieve in 100 days if you will get the chance to stay on the Coboat?
Finalize global business development (value proposition, customer segment, identifications of channels, customer relationships, main costs…) and clearly identify the guideline and actions to achieve in the next months. Define precisely the functions of the digital platform and its design to start working as soon as possible with web developers. Make a pitch video to attract investors and test the idea towards customers.
Will you complete this project on your own, or will you be working with a together with a team?
At the moment, I am working on my own to sharpen my ideas to be able to gather motivated people around me and then create a mature and multidisciplinary team that will help me achieving this project. Being on board would be a great opportunity to build multicultural and professional relationships and even meet the right people to start the ID’Archi adventure!
Why should your project be chosen?
ID’Archi is a disruptive project that will change the actual balance in the Architecture field where only rich people can benefit from well-known architects. This project means a possible new era where all the architects, no matter their age, experience or network will have the chance to express their talent to improve the way of living of a wide range of people and thus promote architecture for better living standards.
What does this project mean to you?
This ID’Archi project certainly represents a challenge that will change my life. Coboat offers me a unique chance to jump both into the entrepreneurship and sailing adventure with inspiring people; the opportunity to combine work and passions. Coboats simply offers me what I call freedom.
Why do you want to do this project?
I’ve read that trying to turn ideas into reality means making choices and taking risks - «getting wet» to sum up in French. Creating your start-up is like jumping into the water and learn how to swim once you're in it instead of just looking from the top of the cliff and waiting for the right moment. As a sailing lover, when I discovered Coboat I saw it as a funny coincidence and the perfect start I needed! So let’s jump into the water of entrepreneurship and sail the waves of innovation!

Please tell us a bit about yourself and your professional background. How do you fit into a team? What have you done before within the field of your idea?
I am a 28 yrs old architect and engineer and I live in Paris. My travels and studies abroad (Australia and then Sweden) and my sailing experiences have surely helped me to develop my adaptability and flexibility to fit in a team and my love of adventures! I have often been part of multidisciplinary teams during my professional experiences. Besides, I try to find enough time to work on my personal projects. Coboat would offer me the chance to focus on ID’Archi to lead the life i'm dreaming of!
