Alain Laurens

Successful journalist for the most internationally renowned advertising agencies, such as Riss Conseil, DMB & Be Lintans, he decides to completely change his life at the age of 50, when the agency he was working for is bought by a company from New York. Inspired by the woody landscape he lived in, he starts planning residences over the trees, which are at first simple hutprototypes and then they become more and more complicated facilities, built without nails, completely respectful of the tree on which they are installed. In 2000, he establishes “La Cabane Perchée” workshop in partnership with Daniel Dufour, the former artistic director of Vogue and renowned watercolorist and with Ghislain André, experienced carpenter. Their workshop has currently designed hundreds of refined work in Europe.
