Founded in 1997 within SNCF (the French national rail operator) by Jean-Marie Duthilleul and Etienne Tricaud -both architects and engineers- AREP Group delivers projects on different scales going from large metropolitan areas and urban districts to individual buildings and street furniture.
Their reputation is based on their ability to conceive and create multi-modal stations in dense urban areas, in other words mobility-related spaces housing complex uses and facing challenging technical and heritage issues. Building on this knowledge, AREP can provide effective solutions for other types of public spaces.
AREP brings together 900 people and more than 30 nationalities, professionals from diverse disciplines: architects, urban planners, designers, engineers, economists, architectural programming consultants and construction operations managers.
They offer their expertise in all areas of city planning and construction: multimodal hubs and railway stations, public amenities, offices, hotels and housing, shopping centres and technical facilities.
