Architecture Work Office is a full service design company driven by ideas and constructability. The award-winning work is based on extensive experience from the fields of architecture and urbanism, academia, art, and illustration, as well as general construction, construction management, and real estate development.
Since its inception in 2012, Architecture Work Office is committed to pushing the envelope of design with an intellectual rigor for experimentation and exploration, focusing on the intersection of art and function that shapes our lives. The firm has a tireless avidity for identifying problems in our living environment and developing cogent solutions. This fosters a seamless connection between initial designs that correspond to clients’ needs, leading to design development, engineering, fabrication, and construction.
The firm has worked on public and private projects that range from the master plan of a harbor to the renovation of a kitchen. The cultural and institutional projects vary from university projects to the development and implementation of a new building material for a chemical conglomerate. In addition to private residences and offices, the firm also has expertise in real estate development design and execution.
Architecture Work Office considers its projects as an opportunity to evoke tacit pleasure in the lives of those who experience them. This is accomplished by surpassing expectations through problem solving to generate a value that cannot be calculated.
