Victor Lefebvre

 

Victor Lefebvre is a French state-licensed architect with a background in furniture design and woodworking.

Educated both in Versailles, France and Kyoto, Japan, Victor practiced at Kengo Kuma Paris before a research grant lead him to root in Kyoto for three years.

With more grit for working with his hands than his doctoral studies, Victor conducted a few small residential projects in and around the city, as well as competitions for Kengo Kuma in Tokyo, before starting a hand built traditional wooden house renovation association along with friends.

He then returned to Europe, where he spent two years at Herzog & de Meuron Basel working on high profile competitions and residential projects, as well as furniture and detailing projects in the in-house wood shop.

Following his departure, Victor settled in the Bay Area as a designer at Envelope A+D in Berkeley, but now continues to travel around the world, here and there, in quest of careful details and new collaborators for UMÉ Studio.
