Creating a Courtyard
Shifting the skyline
Common - Public Areas
Our winning proposal for the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva proposes a space that is as diverse and adaptable as the people and activities it hosts. In order to avoid the usual vertical program segregation (of public facilities on the ground floor - apartments on the above floors), we proposed an
ascendant promenade “carved”
into the building’s volume. Which would allow pedestrian access to all floors, from the ground floor all the way up to the rooftops.
Access Zoning: Open to Visitors Residents
Program Zoning: Common Space Public Activity
Interior Courtyard - North- East Elevation
Modularity: Structural Grid Apartment Modulation
BLF Headquarters Kengo Kuma & Associates Competition: 2016 Beirut, Lebanon
The Bank of Lebanon invited us to design a new headquarter building, to a site located in the heart of Beirut. Our proposal was to link the existing cultural and urban fabric with the sea. By opening a gesture towards the city, we are expressing an open and a comfortable relationship with the city. Carving
By carving the north elevation expansive views are created towards nature whilst maximising north light.The south elevation is carved as an open gesture to the culture of the city besides shading the facade from the strongest sun. The branch is similarly carved to create a welcoming environment.
By conﬁguring an organic and mutable skin that covers the building, a three dimensional garden, landscape and architecture are fully integrated into one singular whole.
Program + Circulation Access + Security
West Elevation 0° Twisted Louvers
By twisting the sandstone louvers, the building expresses a transparent base whilst through a smooth transition maximisingsolar control on upper levels and creating a distinct bank idenitity.
The twisting of the louvers, creates a transparent base and opens the lobby to a human scale, with a grand piazza. As the transparency diffuses, so happens the 0°
shift from public to private,
and the need for shading increases. With a simple twist of the louvre, transparency is maintained, optimum internal lighting is created, as well as an energy efficient strategy.

Arcelik Campus Kengo Kuma & Associates Winning Competition: 2016 Istanbul, Turkey
Under One Roof
Forest of Columns
The new campus for Arcelik is located on the border of the city and nature in the outskirt of Istanbul. The building emphasizes this connection between nature and culture by being
Which is held by a forest of columns as a continuation of the forest. There are multiple perforations on the roof, either covered with different materials or left open, what creates micro-climate zones. These well positioned spaces initiate communication between different departments, enchanting the working environment by blurring the border between nature and architecture. 15.00
Creative Landscape Thesis Project: 2015 Budapest, Hungary
Classroom type 1
Classroom type 2
Classroom type 3
My thesis work is an attempt to explore
flexible and adaptable usage without any mobile elements.
The Waldorf school consists of two main components. A parametric fabric-like structure functions as the base that without any literal variation suggests a creative use of space, blocking the same piece 25,000 times. These elements provide most of the furniture of the building as well. Above, a scaffolding structure is dynamic instead, diverting sunlight wherever needed.
Moonlight Pavilion Studio Project 2012 Finland
Multiple Spot Lights
Providing natural light for the people of the northern european countries is an issue that affects public mental health greatly. The
amount of sunshine is inadequate
during a certain period of the year. The project aims to give a natural but architectural solution to this problem. The roof of the pavilion is filled with water and fluorescent algae, providing light during the dark hours of the day. Versatile usage was also an important role during the design. The focus of the light can be changed by lowering or raising the columns holding the roof.
Unhousing Stadium Competition: 2018 New York, Usa
East river park
Phase 1 - Peak deployment
Phase 2 - Distribution and disassembly
Phase 3 - Organic Housing
The task during the Residential Stadium Competition aims to address the problem of stadiums built for large international games left
unoccupied after the main event
by combining it’s function with housing. Our proposal approached the issue from a different perspective, proposing
a zero footprint stadium instead.
A zero-footprint stadium
During the World Cup in 2026, a floating field is assembled on the Hudson River. Hovering above the field, a multifunctional inflated roof captures the main event, streaming the action onto it’s surface and effectively transforming the urban surroundings into the world’s largest stadium. Smaller instances of the main roof disperse throughout the city, receiving the broadcast, translating the event into an interactive virtual experience by projecting the stream of information. Between larger events, the roof and field can be disassembled and the modules deployed along the river. Alternatively, the components can be disassembled and stored or even upcycled. Due to the non-development of a typical stadium or other similar large structure the city can continue to use its public land while planning housing in an organic way.
