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: Work has started on the roof extension as the independent steelwork forming the double storey extension is being assembled with the delicate insertion of vertical supports through the existing structure. Following the development of a full scale prototype for the bespoke laser cut facade, the manufacturing process of each unique panel forming the project’s skin is now underway. Internal works are moving ahead with the completion of internal partitions and services which are being carefully inserted to negotiate the listed features.
