Joshua Florquin Architects
Architecture practice based in Paris & Gent, founded by Joshua Florquin in 2014, creating a broadminded think-tank active on the junction of architecture and design.
Its core team is composed of architects and designers each with different cultural backgrounds and professional knowledge. Creating with the belief that architecture and design can contribute to offering aesthetic pragmatic solutions of today’s urban, economic and environmental concerns who are urging. The role of architecture is also social, a sponge that needs to absorb in continuation cultural and social changes, process and emit them into new innovative ideas that are sustainable in use and stand the test of trends and time.
Environmental concerns are very sensitive to us and can no longer be ignored. Existing infrastructure offers a base for its reuse. We reflect on the changes and transformations of the built space, promoting a permanent research activity of construction methods that are innovative. The use of sustainable materials are part of our design process.
During the design process we keep a continuous dialogue with the client and his needs. Regardless the scale, user or program, we address a project by focusing in particular on its context.
While guided by regulations and program we ask ourselves what the building or space wants to be? How can the use of scale, materials, light and texture offer the user and his environment emotional and aesthetic poetry? By answering these questions and combining solutions we obtain a project with a profound and subtle conceived language.
