ISA- Interface Studio Architects
ISA (Interface Studio Archutects) is an architecture office, engaged in design and research projects in cities across the U.S.A.
The architects work closely with project stakeholders to produce buildings, installation and conversation that provide innovative solutions.
The Interface Studio, thinks of design as radically pragmatic problem solving, where asking the right questions is as important as finding answers.
The design process begins with an elementary box: simple and inexpensive to build and predictable in its ability to be hermetically sealed and insulated from the air. The box deforms through three operations: the buildings descend from the block in response to the local urban context; each unit allows for generous natural light, and the surface geometry is playful.
The often-made row streetwall inspired a simple design move to define individual units through angled geometries, unifying them as part of an urban block.
True North is a project to fill an urban void in a developing neighborhood with 26 residential units.
The latter fit perfectly within the urban context, through simple, linear and balanced geometries.
Sometimes, the project reactivates all the surrounding public roads, in such a way as to insert the houses, adapting to the particular character of the context, creating a diversified but harmonious whole.
Big ideas and real-world constraints coexist side by side in construction and research projects.
The interest in working within the spaces and architectural programs of everyday life leads to a careful examination of projects, large and small.
The typically American style is easily recognizable in the projects carried out, but they are imbued with great mastery.
