Our architectural studio received a commission from Flacon Design Factory to design a micro-office.
The task was difficult, almost impossible – to consrtuct the 2nd and the 3d levels on a narrow small area (12 sq. m) and to adapt the social function.


The building site is a small breach in the fence around the territory. It ends in a rusty corten volume of a gatehouse on the one side and flanks a stalin-style 5 storey administration house with the eaves on the other side.
We decided to make two microvolumes instead of one and to connect the rusty cube and the Stalin-style façade by some structure made in different style.


Finally we created two small houses (lodges) with pitched roofs, reminding the housing of Amsterdam with its dense conglomeration of buildings.
