WE ARE WITHOUT PRECEDENT
We follow the rules and the loopholes.
We are full of bullshit which allows us to escape from the comfort of the normative.
We are part of the parametric generation and still amazed by the richness of the old messy processes.
We like computer, geometry and form specially when they operate in the background.
We believe that a good project is nothing less than a good building but we never stopped pushing our projects towards buildings.
We have built projects to feel the mess.
We like the old simple ties between businesses and people. Like doctors, barristers, cobblers, sex workers and magicians… we have a small space and we pay rent.
We have students who work for us and observe our struggles.
We see no boundaries between design disciplines other than the ones drawn by the very practitioners of each discipline.
We moved to Toronto to practice architecture. We like to think we are without precedent.
We are always looking for Architecture students who are competent in Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and AutoCAD.Applicants should be motivated and tuned with the studio culture. Please review the website to see if your interest is aligned with what we do.
