rare architecture is an office for research, architecture and education. Projects range from the scale of the Object to the Urban. We stress the need to establish a tailored response, which implies a singular design process for each project with an adapted use of our network of competences. Mixing different endeavours we sensibly apply transversal thinking between teaching, research and commissions.

On site log: Piling and underpinning works are fully underway revealing the original shell and concealed features of the existing construction allowing the fine notation for renovation works to be updated. In relation to the particularity of this complex refurbishment a constant feedback loop is ensured for design adaptations. Prototyping for automated productions of designs such as water jet cut and CNC milling are also taking place to refine and validate manufacturing processes.
