Armelle Coutant

CEO and Co-Founder, Kit Switch
Armelle is the CEO and Co-Founder at Kit Switch, woman-and-minority-owned small business on a mission to create the homes we need with the buildings we already have. They deliver kits from their library of ready-to-install building interiors for tenant improvements, retrofit, and conversion projects. With their first product line, the Kit-Kitchen, their vision is to more seamlessly install flexible infill housing inside underutilized spaces. Her background in urbanism and ecology has fueled her passion for regenerative and circular ways to make buildings more responsive to the humans occupying them and the ecosystems that surround them.
She holds a dual Bachelor’s in Architectural Design and Biology, and a Master’s in Sustainable Urban Systems from Stanford University.
