SMARTments

The creation of compact living space in urban centres will be one of the greatest challenges of the future. For the SMARTments living concept by property developer GBI, Kinzo developed a modular construction kit for micro apartments. The room units combine economic feasibility with good design, offering the occupants many options for customising their space to match their mood. Photography: Pamela Ossola.

We have often fallen flat on our faces: but the risk has paid off and Kinzo has undergone an incredible evolution.

We always think three-dimensionally. It’s always about form, function and construction. Everything has to blend harmoniously, everything has to fit!

The three of us have worked well together ever since we were students. And it was always clear to us that architecture doesn’t stop at the doorstep.

Our concept of design and architecture is fun-packed and doesn’t shy away from the risk of innovative and unusual approaches!
