Etienne Gillabert

Chief Senior Project Manager

Chief Senior Project Manager Etienne Gillabert (Lausanne, Switzerland) studied Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne.

Gillabert has been working with L’Observatoire International since 1999. He has worked on iconic projects such as the Pont du Gard with artist James Turrell, Abbaye de Fontevraud with Agence Jouin Manku, and Under One Roof with Kengo Kuma and Associates.

Gillabert says architecture, as he learned it, was about building walls, but lighting design allowed him to discover how to treat the void between the walls. For him, the best reward is when someone says they feel good in a space we helped to design.
