Rina Lovko Studio

If you want to know how an architect lives, go visit their office. Although, the Rina Lovko Studio’s workspace is hard to call an office.   The architect’s workshop was registered on the ground floor of a house in 1895, located in the heart of Kiev, not far from St. Andrew's Descent and Pejzazhna Alley. And in the immediate vicinity, right in the courtyard is the foundation of the church of the 12th century. You can get into the studio from the yard. Through the veranda in the style of Chekhov's times (in the past it was the main entrance to the house), the guest enters the room functionally used as a hub, uniting like-minded architects. In this format of coworking, the studio has been living for two years.   &ldqu... More

Hotel Tepoztlan

Amidst exotic vegetation and mysticism, the Tepoztlan Hotel sits on what was once an abandoned plot where wild vegetation had already taken possession and ancient trees flanked the main entrance of a rugged topography.   Imagined and created by Taller Carlos Marín and Pasquinel Studio, the terracotta-colored oasis that houses 11 rooms is diluted through 4 volumes that allow for a balanced arrangement of the hotel's program and the surrounding landscape.   Upon entering, an imposing staple of pigmented concrete intertwines with the perfect tabebuias to form the entrance frame; as we continue, the geographic peculiarity of the terrain takes center stage as it reveals a volcanic landscape that responds to the topographic c...

House JE

The project is situated in a small street in the Grand Beguinage in Mechelen. The protected monument with a lot of cultural, historical and aesthetic value was originally a poorhouse from the 17th century and had been vacant for years. The convent has been completely intact since the 18th century without any modifications and shows us that the beguines really mastered soberness.   This is reflected in the approach of the architect. dmvA renovated and restored the building and transformed it into a family home of which the scale didn’t change. The spaces are approached through simplicity and the existing scale inspired dmvA to design in a Japanese-inspired way. In doing so there has been searched for maximality in the... More
