Marc Koehler Architects
Marc Koehler Architects is an international design agency, founded in 2005 and operated by 4 associates and a multidisciplinary team of 20 highly skilled architects and engineers.
MKA offers an integrated and all-round design service, scoping from concept to execution design and operating in product & interior design and architecture & urban design.
MKA makes meaningful spaces and products that reflect new ways of co-living and a explores a socially responsible way of making buildings. ‘We try to create valuable connections between buildings and their environment, the culture of its users and the latest technical possibilities. We aim to improve peoples lives by giving special attention to details in everyday situations and turning them into unique moments, using simple means’. Architecture is thus not a luxury product but a creative mind set that can be applied to any spatial scale’.
Currently, MKA is involved in the design of ecological dune houses, experimental collective housing projects, urban design studies for self-made cities and several community buildings such as the University of Gent and the Library of Antwerp Edegem.
MKA is also initiator of Superlofts; a growing international network of building communities that share ideas and inspiration on self-made housing and cooperative development. For more info; www.superlofts.co
MKA’s work has been extensively published and awarded, such as the Dutch Building Award and WAN Best House Award in 2015.
