Hayakawa/Kowalczyk

Hayakawa/Kowalczyk

Tokyo-based studio Hayakawa/Kowalczyk arose from a collaboration between Japanese architect Emiko Hayakawa, ex-David Adjaye and Kumiko Inui, and the Polish architect and writer Aureliusz Kowalczyk, following his stints with Tony Fretton, Stephen Taylor Architects and Caruso St John Architects. In 2009 they set up their own studio, taking in influences such as Tokyo’s shifting urban environment and art scene to generate an architecture that encompasses everything from private houses to galleries and installations. Recent projects include the brick built House in the Woods, near Warsaw, and a concept for a low-cost family House in Luanda, one of the finalists in an international competition at the recent Lisbon Triennale. Hayakawa and Kowalczyk are looking to grow their practice, while ’maintaining a relationship with the type of clients we are working with now - these projects pose challenges that make the outcome more interesting.’
