A singular, multicultural and ambitious pairing of architecture and design: Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku invent a craft at the crossroads of industrial production and the long tradition of craftsmanship. Combining their experience, their conceptual and experimental approaches, they saw the opportunity to create a dynamic collaboration that blurs the lines between objects, interiors and structures. One of the agency's core values is to reinvent itself with each project, working on a global concept from ceiling to spoon or staircase to doorknob.

Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have worked with some of the world's greatest names on exceptional projects, including Alain Ducasse, Pierre Hermé and Van Cleef & Arpels, developing a creative dialectic dedicated to space planning and architectural design.


Backed by Jacques Goubin since 2016, Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku now head a team of 50 architects, interior architects and designers. They orchestrate their talents to create exceptional spaces filled with just the right touch, but even more so to transcribe atmospheres and create emotions.

Directors play an essential role in the development and quality of each project. Working with teams, craftsmen and other stakeholders, they ensure that the architectural concepts, interior architecture and design envisioned are put into practice.

One meeting, two studios

Patrick Jouin founded his design and urban design studio in 1998. He has worked with a wide range of companies, such as Ligne Roset, Cassina, Fermob and Kartell, and on projects for public space and transport. Becoming increasingly involved in architecture and interior architecture, an architect was needed to complete the team; it was at this moment that the chance encounter came with Sanjit Manku, a Canadian architect travelling through Europe. Chance, a friend in common and a shared language – drawing – brought them quickly together. Their friendship was established and they decided to work together.

A few years later, in 2006, they officially founded Jouin Manku to work together on architecture and interior architecture. Today, the two studios continue to evolve in tandem, Jouin Manku maintaining its design approach in architectural projects, while Patrick Jouin iD reveals an architectural vein in its creations.
