GRAUX & BAEYENS Architects (GBA) is a Belgium-based architectural studio established in 2005 by Koen Baeyens and Basile Graux.
The practice operates in the field of contemporary architecture, interior and product design. GBA strives to create ideas that result in one clear formal concept that emerges through continuous questioning and production.
GBA has been nominated for many awards, including the Belgian Building Award, and has a specific focus on unique, single-family homes and offices within Belgium. These projects have an emphasis on contextual interventions which sensitively engage with the surrounding landscape, forming a true sense of place.
These are often an interplay of existing spaces reimagined as well as contemporary reinterpretations of vernacular forms. This is much in contrast to the predominant contextless new build housing seen elsewhere. In utilising the brick of the low countries and in-situ concrete, GBA’s work explores the tectonic nature of the materials readily at hand.
The office is realising a variety of projects in Belgium ranging from single family dwellings, nightclubs, office buildings and design furniture.
The talk will be accompanied by a short exhibition of GBA work at Custom Lane.
This talk follows on from Izat Arundell & Collaborators, Rural Office for Architecture, STUDIO NIRO, Clancy Moore, Assemble Studio, Karl-Heinz Schmitz, wHY Studio, IF_DO & Sebastian Cox.
Please come and share a drink and some thoughts with us, and as usual light refreshments are provided for our guests.
