We are forward thinking, surprising and pragmatic. LOCAL move across the field of architecture and urbanism. We believe in minimising the impact of the materials and resources we use. We translate situations and transpose ideas. We are local.

LOCAL is based in Bergen, Bruxelles and Paris, founded by Matthieu Boustany, Benoist Desfonds, Gilles Guyot, Elida Mosquera & Jerome Picard. They are a Norwegian Wildcard-NAL since January 2020. Notable projects include Greymatter Auby, an intergenerational urban development focused on ageing in town center, awarded Europan 15 project, the winning entry for the new Latvian Paralympic center in Riga and the 100% Wooden house at Château De La Bourdaisière in France. LOCAL recently delivered a new hotel The Bellhop in thriving Rotterdam´s Witte de Withstraat and contemporary Art gallery Ground Effect in Paris. LOCAL is focused on the development of our Greymatter projects.

What is Greymatter? Greymatter is our vision to re-invent the places where we grow old. We want to build the next generation of healthcare facility that is open to the city, inclusive and attractive for health professional, students, younger, senior residents and their relatives.
We want to place our elders at the heart of urban renewal. A place where our future self would want to live.
