Showing

KODA house. Come by and have a chat with us

What if you looked at the construction business from a fresh angle? What if you looked at a house as a whole and not as a complicated aggregation of ventilating shafts, glazed tiles, grout and silicate. What would our houses look like if architects and designers, engineers and builders, academics and practitioners all worked together towards the same goal, in the same spacetime?

We built the KODA house thinking about these questions, about all these "what if’s".

Exhibition - New Architects: Ireland

New Architecture: Ireland is a traveling architecture exhibition that presents the work of six young Irish offices that have emerged during the recent economic crisis. Ireland’s financial woes during this period are well documented and this has had an enormous impact on the construction and design sector. This shift has forced architects/designers to refocus and in this way these bleak times have produced new offices and ways of thinking.
