Archivite Arhitecture



We at Archivite Architecture follow a fascination for investigative spatial research focusing on the productive interior environments and the influence of built form on the everyday lives of its inhabitants and users. On the other hand, we stretch our research into contextual and site constraints with respect to testing socio-cultural, economic and environmental issues, informal urbanism and typologies of housing. We believe every design is unique and is a resultant of in-depth analytical research, whilst also challenging the existing thinking strategies and evolving exciting design solutions.



Legotyping involves the exploration of multiple design options through extensive design testing to use through smaller-scaled lego blocks. Design is the result of this tedious iterative process, which allows the highest quality design to emerge through continuous discussion and assessment. We try to use diagrams, visualizations, physical models and numerous other mediums to interrogate the design, the site, the brief, and the client’s wishes.



We live in urban societies that have grown past limitations, set backward standards on conditions of living. Our societies live past expecting, where demand is more than supply. We seek a positive approach at our studio in the upcoming years, to collaborate on social and CSR related projects to get committed to working on urban level projects, thus extending our research on a more actual scale.
