About us

A sustainable building engineering company, MATRIciel is a spin-off of the Architecture and Climate research unit from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium. The company was created in 2005 by researchers who wanted to put academic tools at the service of the building sector. The ambition was, and remains, to develop all the dimensions of Sustainable Development, in a pragmatic and realistic manner.

MATRIciel thus aims to limit the negative impact of construction on Nature while maximizing the comfort, health and well-being of the users inside and outside of buildings.

We refuse to believe that each problem has a “high-tech” solution and we would rather adopt an approach based on bioclimatism and the circular economy to help architects design more sustainable buildings.

We design frugal places in terms of energy, material and technicality, from the scale of the building to that of the territory.


Our knowhow was born in a university research unit and we now put the academic tools at the service of the building sector
