Bureau Architectures Sans Titre was set up Toulouse in 2013 by Laurent Didier and Mathieu Le Ny – and bolstered by the addition of Jean-Baptiste Friot and Louis Leger in 2016 – to form the BAST co-operative society, embracing what they describe as research-led work with an ‘anonymous approach’. Despite this deliberate lack of attribution, every BAST project has a distinct character. ‘Our projects don't follow a formal method, but instead develop in an evolutionary process that defines the identity of the office.’ Their portfolio is rich with pragmatic invention, from a series of robust small private houses and additions, larger projects for apartment buildings and simple office spaces.
