Studio Malka is a versatile architecture agency including scenography and art installations, interior architecture, design and artistic direction.
Since the creation of the studio in 2010, we have developed committed, forward-looking and innovative projects in response to major societal and climatic challenges: we offer solutions combining flexibility and modularity, frugality and upcycling, mobility and prefabrication, new manufacturing processes, construction methods and new digital uses constitute the very foundations of our work. Our studio include a research and development center applied to architecture, hybridizing new typologies and low-consumption technological research, applied to each of the projects.
Studio Malka creates unique, ultra-contemporary, innovative avant-garde and conscious architecture in programs as various as housing, office buildings, stage design, installations, and furniture design.
Each project is for us an opportunity to experiment with new uses in connection with the project.
The result is unique works, surprising places, where dreaminess and pragmatism, baroque and minimalism, sustainability and architectural sophistication meets.
Our guidelines?
Healing the City, rethinking it’s Architecture .
We aims to create new approaches and new uses while bringing innovative solutions, designing avant-gardist ways to inhabit, to work , to simply dine or to entertain in new immersive experiences, blending art and architecture in a humanist, positive, and sustainable way.
The results are originals and surprising places where onirism and pragmatism, baroque and minimalism, ecology and sophistication meets.
