PIQUE - architecture_design_art_planning, communication.
PIQUE is a collaborative architecture practice founded for the purpose of creating exceptional art and architecture interventions. Initially formed as a close group of three directors, PIQUE has evolved into an internationally recognized design practice known for thoughtful and considered design solutions that reflect the influences of our clients, our design professionals and our growing team of international design collaborators. Architecture is about experience. More than the framing of space and the articulation of form, architecture helps choreograph life’s experiences, and we consider this a paramount concern when we design our projects. Just as the word ‘pique’ means to stimulate or capture one’s attention, we see every project - regardless of scale - as an opportunity to explore the ways in which the specific architecture response to your brief will enhance your life experience. Fundamentally, buildings provide shelter and meet program requirements. For us, a building will only be considered successful when it provides some unexpected delight, and contributes exceptionally to its place, when it converts opportunity into reality in imaginative ways and far exceeds those fundamental requirements.
