About 

Mikou Design Studio is a place of creation and experimentation in architecture and its inter-disciplinary cross-fertilisation. We design in a continuous workshop spirit with a multidisciplinary team of architects, engineers, graphic artists, scenographers and town planners from very different cultural backgrounds.
Every project is an opportunity for challenging and redefining the meaning of a brief, a function in an urban, social and human context, in order to invent new ways of living, places of sharing and gathering which are more sensitive and sensual stimulating an emotional response.
Distancing us from preconceptions of form and function gives us the freedom to create original solutions which enhance the fourth dimension of space - the dimension of sensitive spatial experience, the interaction between people and their environment.
Mikou Design Studio is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout France, Germany, Brazil and Morocco, with a focus on cultural and educational buildings, housing and offices.
MIKOU DESIGN STUDIO has been chosen from 400 european applicants to represent the avant-garde of the most creative architects of 2011.
