Architecture

What do you do when there is an existing load-bearing structure in reinforced concrete, built to a design that the client dislikes? Everything is possible.

The client called us when the harm was already done: The previous owner had built an irregular, non-modular, clumsy structure that was too expensive to demolish. We had to suggest how to adapt it and dress it into something totally different.

We made an experiment: two drastically different styles and spatial concepts. The winner was the one commissioned by the client and inspired by historical styles so we developed it in its entirety. And then, just before the permit was obtained, our client sold the plot too. Everything is possible.
