Super Ligera

In classical ballet, a ballerina uses half-pointed shoes until her bones are prepared and hardened to support pointed shoes, adapting her bone structure to the physical and aesthetic demands of this art, cataloged as a discipline.Super Light has been inspired by this bone transformation process due to its extreme lightness, uniform throughout its perimeter, composed of numerous elements that make up and reinforce its central column. Her cherry seat is adapted from where the the passage of time can be reflected and appreciated, reinforcing its natural imperfection.The result? A delicate piece for its slender figure, wrapped with the brutality and roughness of its seat. More

OAV offices

A glance over this place shows us a C-shaped space, which fits the proposed program. It is a small office dedicated to customer service. The rectangular floor plan, to which the communication core of the residential building in which it is located is subtracted, distributes the space in a large corridor attached to the dividing wall and two rooms.We decided thus to “work up against the wall” in this way the work stations and service areas are attached to the longitudinal dimension of the premises while the waiting area and the meeting room are located in the two resulting rooms.To delimit the working area, the gray materiality of the pavement is used. A resource is thus used that gives the roof the quality of being a kind of signage th...

M house

Semi-detached house is a transitory form between free-standing houses and row houses, and can be organized as a group of linear or spotted units. Two parts of a semi-detached house are usually identically spatially and geometrically designed, which interferes with user’s identification with his living space. A designing process of this semi-detached house was marked by the architect’s effort to ideally use conditions offered by location and avoid this cliché. The main task of the designer was to conceive two different units with almost identical living areas within the object treated as an individual house.This semi-detached house is designed in, to a certain extent, limited conditions, on a small lot, and adjacent to several newly built st...

Garun Cafe-Restaurant

The Seasons of the year come and go and sometimes people do not get enough time to enjoy their favourite season. Some like the summer, others the winter, but the absolute favourite within the literature and human preference is the spring.

So considering the publics love for the spring season, Archangel has created a place, in the tiny 60F of space, where there is a whole world, where it is always spring, or Garun.            Moving on from the popular associative color of spring, the green, Archangel has reinvented Garun in the colors of blue and yellow with the...
