Created in 2005 by Eric Cassar, ARKHENSPACES is an urbanism and architecture firm, with a focus in the research, design and construction of new and sustainable contemporary spaces. In each project, design mix Art, Technique and Social in order to reintroduce surprise into the city, art in life and be influential over architectural circles.
ARKHENSPACES managed entirely more than twenty projects facing, each time, new technical challenges.
At the same time, ARKHENSPACES works on theoretical and practical research subjects, especially concerning the concept of nspaces (*): ND cities, immaterial architecture (intelligent green building), subtle ar(t)chitecture…
The studio also develops prototypes of motorway and urban services stations for Total (5th largest oil and gas company in the world). One project has been built in Netherlands. Another one is underway in Lebanon.
Moreover, since 2006 ARKHENSPACES participated in more than 20 international competitions. It was the opportunity to develop new architectural and urban answers while refining and affirming its architectural writing identity.
These projects were identified, exhibited, awarded and published in books and magazines in France and abroad.
In 2010, Eric Cassar received the 2010 architecture award from the French « Academie des Beaux Arts », Pierre Cardin prize which recognizes his overall work.
