She studied Architecture in France and Italy before receiving her Masters of Architecture from the National School of Architecture of Lyon in 2007.

Her experience ranges from conceptual research and design to technical documentation and construction administration. The effervescent architecture scene and the call for the great outdoors inspired Alix to move to Vancouver in 2010.

Alix is a registered Architect in France.
