Arch4

With studios in Moscow and Basel, ARCH4 are branching out confidently with projects outside of Russia. Set up in 1996, the studio makes much of its ability to synthesise Russian identity with the country's ongoing predilection for 'European-style' quality. The Russian landscape is a particular inspiration, and ARCH4's team pick up bits and pieces from every aspect of the country's past and present - from rigorous woodwork through to repurposed industrial machinery. From early projects like the proto-high tech chrome and glass fest of their first project, the Jet Plane Flat, through to recent houses in the forested landscape around Moscow, the emphasis is on craft and quality, seeking out levels of surface finish that they claim simply don't exist in contemporary Russian culture. This quality-led approach has also given the firm a shot at boutique-building for established brands like Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Ferragmo in Moscow's Stoleshnikov Lane. Hermès has even taken ARCH4 to Basel.
