The Project is about the reconstruction of a building located in Lisbon’s historical city centre.
The existing building in an advanced degradation condition and lacking architectural quality was demolished and completely rebuilt, reshaping its compartmentalization, without distorting the memory of the environment in order to preserve the urban heritage of the neighbourhood, but guided by a contemporary intervention that marks the time of its execution.

Impact Hub Belgrade is a creative office space created through an adaptation and interior space renovation of the Events Hall in the former house of the headquarters of the Association of State Employees Purchasing Cooperatives. The construction of the building took place from mid-1928 until mid-1929 and was done according to the second-prize design of the architect Dimitrije M. Leko, one of the most important and staunchest representatives of academic art in Serbian interwar architecture.The building is considered to be a part of Serbian cultural heritage, which affirms its exceptionality and artistic, cultural and social significance.Thus preserving the authentic elements of the interior is one of the main characteristics of this project.

Located at First Street, HOME forms the cultural heart of one of the largest areas of development in Manchester city centre – a flagship building that acts as a catalyst for the surrounding area. As the base for the new organisation formed by the merger of Cornerhouse and The Library Theatre Company, HOME has been designed to allow for the commissioning, production and presentation of critically engaged and technically complex artistic projects, as well as the hosting of large scale cultural events. The overall budget for HOME was £25 million. Its striking exterior acts like beacon, while the welcoming public spaces and social areas within are designed to be inviting to all. HOME is like a second home, a cultural home: a place for making, meeting and socialising, alongside enjoying the very best in international contemporary visual art, theatre and film.

Located in Quebec City, the Lebourgneuf Community Center is a central element for the community because of the activities offered and its proximity to Les Prés-Verts Elementary School. The Center is directly connected to the school and is a major partner for recreational, educative and sociocultural activities. The extension project consisted in adding a double gymnasium, two locker rooms with sanitary facilities, a divisible workout gym and a classroom. The extension has two steel structure levels and was designed according to a future extension of Les Prés-Verts Elementary School and a new local library.

Alto El Golf is a312,000 sq. ft. (29,000 m²) office building, recently completed in the El Golf section of Santiago.
For this project, we strove to rethink the standard office typology. Santiago has a mild climate and the Chileans embrace nature and the outdoors. In addition, the site is surrounded by streets on three of its sides, generating an isle condition with ideal sun and visual exposures. The resultant design is a series of irregularly scaled, shifted volumes that replace the static hierarchies of the hermetic box, creating a variety of outdoor terraces that allow for greenery and social interaction. The building also represents our thinking on the changing nature of the workplace environment, where utilizing these types of spaces is an integral part of daily life.

Hoekenrodeplein forms the link between the Amsterdam Port shopping centre and the Arena Boulevard. With the redevelopment of the New Amsterdam Building, the square has been developed as one of the final phases of the Zuidoost Centre Area. The existing, U-shaped building th at wraps around the square was expanded on the ground and first floors, and now accommodates public functions, such as a hotel and hospitality facilities. This redevelopment, along with the desire of the municipality to also allow events to take place on the square, made it necessary to revise the earlier design by karres+brands from 2006.

The project was designed as a 35-room boutique hotel to be constructed on the site of an abandoned commercial block that will be redeveloped according to the Urban Regeneration Law.
A strong architectural character reflecting the urban context was aimed so that the building will stand out among the numerous small-mid size city hotels being erected in the vicinity. The plot is located on Dolapdere Avenue that is still predominantly lined with auto repair workshops despite the ongoing gentrification process. Accordingly, façade and interior materials referring to the automotive industry with their shapes, textures and colors were preferred.

Two small make one big.
This playful city house consists of a new wooden home built inside the existing brick framework of the old house.
The client bought the house next to his existing home to expand the amount of square meters to live in and to realize a carport to shelter their car, since parking space is rare in the city.
