Architecture & Interior Design with Passion
Archisphere - the architecture and interior design office in Zurich
Archisphere is an internationally active architecture and interior design studio in Vienna and Zurich. It realizes projects primarily in the premium segments of hotels, hospitality and private residences. Together with its clients, it plans buildings and interiors for which careful execution is just as important as the stories they tell.
Archisphere stands for…
Quite literally, the brand stands for architecture and atmosphere – a symbiosis. Successful projects must include the material and the emotional.
The architects and interior designers at Archisphere work to embody both these identities, Archi & Sphere, at the highest level. “Creative intelligence, precision, and emotion make up our design studio’s DNA. The symbiosis of these qualities distinguishes both our team and our work”, says architect and managing partner Gabriel Kacerovsky.
We see ourselves as a creative powerhouse with a team whose caliber is made up of the sum of our specialists’ individual strengths, and a function of our eminence as a whole: we are ready to respond to unusual challenges with unusual projects. Something that we all have incommon are the high standards we set for everything we build and design.
In the beginning, there is a conversation
Whether a project involves the interior design of a hotel or restaurant, or the desired architec-ture of a private residence – before the first sketch is even drawn, we research the location’s spatial, historical, and current circumstances. This is the beginning of the creative process as we understand it: the art of building, the aesthetic examination of the built space.
Of equal concern are our clients’ unique ideas, and we strive to find the best available solu-tions for them. This is how we create atmosphere: by generating a positive emotional reaction in our clients. It is our benchmark for the success of a project.
As a full-service agency, Archisphere works closely with its clients to develop the criteria and principles that will guide the project. We listen, ask, and suggest. What associations emerge in a conversation with the family as they plan the interior design of their private residence? What fantasies have inspired the owners for the remodeling of their stylish restaurant? What mood are the interior designers of a new hotel seeking to create for the guests’ experience?
Once this information has been carefully gathered, our team can take the next step and enter the research phase using the first-class archive at our disposal. We find inspiration in music, fashion, painting, photography, cultural history, and contemporary art. We are inspired by the colors and forms of nature. It is a relentless search for harmony and contrasts, until the pre-cise dimensions and nuances are found. A project is complete only once the coherent narra-tive emerges from our work; the story it tells marries the customer’s unique intentions and our high professional standards for every aspect of the project. It is all about the beauty and elegance of successful designs.
In the end, a melody echoes
"Our projects are all customised with great passion," says architect Gabriel Kacerovsky, owner and managing director of Archisphere. "To make this possible, we are in constant dialogue with our clients.
We have reached the goal when this dialogue leads to the building or interior that has already existed in the imagination, in the associations, and has become a constant, sustainable reality. We have reached the goal when what we have designed is "right": On the one hand, this means that it is exactly right and the best solution. On the other hand, there is also "mood" in the word; it is as important to us as precision craftsmanship. And ultimately the project should function like a well "tuned" instrument. Then a melody can resound. The result of our work will be music to the ears of our clients.
