Openstudio is both a name and a concept. As the identity for a design practice, it embraces complementary professional disciplines, from architecture and interiors to furniture and landscape. As a studio, it is an ‘open house’ where architects and engineers, painters and poets, sculptors and writers can come together to work on a project, or simply to talk and exchange ideas. The result is a working environment in which design solutions are considered from multiple perspectives, and in which open-mindedness is matched by intellectual rigour. This book allows a glimpse into Openstudio’s creative world. It offers snapshots from a portfolio that extends from houses and apartments to proposals for monuments and urban design. The content is structured around four themes – light, detail, texture and landscape – each of which informs this body of work.
