What we do
The architectural practice Studio Larkemika designs and researches architecture, urbanism, interiors and furniture. We help to create environments that matter.
Adding value to surroundings for the present and future is our main focus. The built environment has great effect on what we do, how we experience the surroundings, how we relate to people and how we use our natural resources. We deliver inventive and realistic solutions that are sensitive, make new things possible and work well.
During all stages from preliminary research to after care we can drive the development for our client. With the full involvement of clients, consultants, builders, authorities and users we manage the process in an open and energetic manner to bring all the important aspects together in a coherent design, which is both intelligent and elegant.
We are thrilled to engage in the adventure to develop smart, beautiful and sustainable environments together with you.
