K2A is an innovative office created thanks to the complicity of two architects, Stéphane KERVYN et Federico ALEGRIA, with diverse international backgrounds. The projects result from a close dialogue and participation between the clients and those involved in their elaboration, from the city council to the construction worker.
The architects and designers in the office continuously work with inventive consultants offering creative solutions to specific issues. They are dedicated to design excellence and strive to contribute positively to the human environment.
The office specializes in architecture, interior design, urban planning and strategic programming. Located in Brussels, K2A works on various types of buildings in Belgium and other neighboring countries.
The design process starts with a clear understanding of the clients’ needs and the dynamics of the brief. This is then translated into significant conceptual foundations. While focusing on cultural and physical characteristics of the site, imposed deadlines, cost control and sustainability, K2A’s projects generate a strong identity and an aesthetic integrity. The practice offers innovative solutions to complex problems and composes meaningful spaces to enrich the human experience.
The notion of sustainability is based on 3 complementary ideas:
Efficient-energy buildings to minimize ecological impact: This is implemented practically (layout, organization, orientation, etc.) as well as technically (solar panels, energy-effective mechanical elements, recycled rain water, etc.).
Intertwining the building with its natural surrounding: The relationship between architecture and its natural context are fundamental to K2A as they define certain parameters of the design process: Daylight, passive ventilation, shaded glazing, etc.
Well-being and environmental awareness: The buildings designed by K2A are meant to enrich and stimulate the human experience and to establish an aesthetic integrity while encouraging environmental responsibility against excessive consumption.
