Our philosophy centers around interconnectedness, extending from our design approach to our business practices.

FERNANDA VUILLEUMIER ARCHITECT - DESIGNER

FERNANDA VUILLEUMIERARCHITECT - DESIGNER

Fernanda Vuilleumier practices architecture within a broader context of pro formative research in which the medium of architecture is an active condition. Her work encompasses client-based projects in a wide range of scales, including hypothetical architectural proposals and temporary perceptions, contexts and nature.

​Vuilleumier focuses on material innovation, research, application, and ingenuity within a broader social and cultural context while providing well-rounded architecture and design services. Vuilleumier’s methodology is to negotiate complex relationships between the observer and the object.

​Vuilleumier engages with high and low technologies and innovative construction materials’ systems to explore architecture as an evolved, critical functionality. Designs include hybrid materials, printed surfaces, and complex repetitive arrangements of elements. The resultant tectonic language facilitates the adaptation and evolution of the functional necessities, at the same time creating creative environments that are at once spatial and material.
