Establishing their firm just three years after graduating from EPFL, David Begert and Sylvain Dubail have a hands-on approach to creating buildings that are affordable, functional and strive to elevate the ordinary in some special way. Some of their most recent projects include a Jura tourist office and the renovation and improved thermal efficiency of a 1970s house in Saignelégier, in north-west Switzerland.
