aotu architecte lyon is a French architecture office established in Shanghai, China in 2006 and registered as a WOFE company (Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise). In order to meet the growing demand of our business in Europe, starting 2016, aotu has started operating its new branch in Lyon, France through the registration of LHA (Leclercq hugues architect).
Created in 2006 in Shanghai, by the architect Hugues Leclercq, the studio provides a new approach to architecture, as a system or an mathematical equation, with the purpose of solving as many issues as possible, such as: social, urban, environmental, functional, economical and structural.


This approach has become a methodology that is applied to each of aotu’s projects, providing them with unique and personalized solutions, resulting in strong concepts with a sober, elegant and contemporary architectural signature.
Our office works on 3 different scales (urbanism, architecture and interior design) and various programs such as urban planning projects, large-scale office and commercial buildings, housings, and also interior design, custom-made furniture etc.


Whatever the scale of our intervention is, our projects always express a strong respect towards the environment:
By environment we first mean the surrounding of the building by making sure that each of our intervention fits carefully into its context. But also on a sustainable point of view by maximizing the energy performances of facades, creating light construction buildings and optimizing the energy consumption and it recovery.

The background, rigor, professionalism and experience of Hugues and his team of architects provide aotu’s clients with the guarantee of creative and high quality projects that fulfil their demands.
