Caroline registered as an illustrator in 2004, set up her own architecture firm in 2006 and co-founded “Culture et Développement Durable” in 2009, to carry out renovation and construction commissions for cultural, living, leisure and working spaces. The challenge was to create her own structure, to generate the vertigo of this individual adventure, within a daring collective, to seize interstices and get off the beaten track. In 2012, stimulated by new horizons, her ambition was to design and manage large-scale pre-construction projects in the commercial, leisure, urban planning and collective housing sectors. She returns to Canada in 2019 to work at L’OEUF. Among other things, she is developing the graphic identity for L’OEUF.02.
