arq+n is a boutique+atelier firm based in New York. The office currently focuses its work on small but detailed sustainable projects for public communities and private clients. arq+n offers a very personal and intimate approach to find the perfect solution to a specific case.
Our process of design begins with a sensible idea, a phrase, a feeling, an image or an object + the co+relationship with the natural surroundings, its needs and the responsibility of giving back to the community. For arq+n the explosion of creativity is a communal and cooperative development that will be discovered by utilizing pure materials and the essential tectonic.
Our projects vary from sustainable interior design, renovations, exhibition design + education and green consulting.
