hiboux architecture

← Back to the Portfolio


hiboux are a team of architects who have been working together since 2005. Through their parallel explorations of spatial concepts drawn from other disciplines (such as the humanities, fine arts, performing arts, and spatial theory), they seek to broaden the practice of architecture. Their approach to each project is sharpened by the incorporation of elements from their interdisciplinary research. Of central concern is the unique way in which each person chooses to inhabit their space. These living circumstances form the starting point of each architectural study, focussing on the needs and desires of those using each space. In their attempts to carve out a contemporary design process, the team renogotiate notions of locality and modernism. Unconstrained by specific modes, construction norms, and notions of a “signature style”, Hiboux aim to provide more experimental project solutions.
