Architecture makes sense
only if it is designed
to live, last and amaze







architecture & design

In a shifting, innovative and inspirational world, it feels more vital than ever to be heading in the right direction in architecture and design. At the crossroads of two paths, Eyka opens up new horizons. Created in 2019 by Nawel Karimine and Yves Claude, the studio combines two professions, two visions and one unshakable conviction: the quality and success of any project is determined by looking ahead.

our philosophy

Eyka takes the time to reflect, in order to better conceive, steer and execute architectural projects that are both innovative and adapted to the needs of today. Driven by rigour, reactivity and creativity, the studio ensures that it always meets the functional and technical standards in force. Capable of managing projects in highly diverse fields, however far along the process they are, Eyka makes your priorities its own, to turn each of your projects into a real success.

our projects

Newbuilds, conversions, renovations, interior and exterior redesigns… Our vast field of expertise allows us to accompany you on any type of site. Driven by a passion for architecture and attention to detail, we draw on the complementarity of our respective skills to create projects that exceed your expectations. So, how about working with us on yours?

yves claude

civil engineer UAS / director of project management
Yves grew up in central Africa, then returned to study in the country where he was born, Switzerland. In 2007, he graduated from the Geneva School of Engineering then joined Pillet SA, first as an engineer, then as a site manager. Over his years of experience, he’s honed his skills in renovation as much as in large-scale newbuilds. In 2019, it was time for him to embark on the next big adventure by founding Eyka architecture & design with Nawel Karimine. For this architecture enthusiast and expert in civil engineering and site management, every project has to be treated with the same demand for quality and the finest attention to detail.
