Studio Jencquel is the brainchild of architect and interior designer Maximilian Jencquel, whose portfolio features a wide variety of high profile projects across the world.

Maximilian’s diverse cultural background enriches his designs. He is not only well-traveled, but has lived and spend much time in myriad parts of the world, ranging from South America, to North America, to Europe and now South East Asia.  

He started his path after being awarded valedictorian of his class in 2005 and graduating with a masters degree in interior design from ESAG Penninghen in Paris, France.

Maximilian’s thesis project, Cabuya, is awarded best student project in France with the Janus de l’Etudiant. Cabuya is a bamboo house that was designed with the purpose of proposing an alternative answer to contemporary construction techniques, which are harmful to the environment. Cabuya was then exhibited in Nantes at the European Ways of Life design show and at the Biennale Internationale de Design in Saint - Etienne.

Soon after, Maximilian is recruited by Andree Putman, whom he assists in designing the Anne Fountaine boutique in Tokyo and a private residence for movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer in Miami.

Max joined Christian Liaigre’s design studio in Paris on 2006, and spent an extensive years assisting Mr. Liaigre on several design projects throughout the world. Some of the most notable ones are Mr. Liaigre’s own residence in Paris, a very modern private residence in Greece with panoramic views overseeing the city of Athens, and a restaurant for Costes in the center of Paris.

Maximilian decided to leave Paris to start his own company on the island of Bali, after a trip to Indonesia in March 2010. He is now pursuing his passion for vernacular architecture and tropical landscapes while constantly being seduced by the island’s abundance of inspirations.

Studio Jencquel was founded.
