Studio Narra

Studio Narra
Studio Narra is a multi-disiplinary design studio founded by two complementary Belgian brothers called Nik & Robbe Vandewyngaerde based in Geneva and Amsterdam. Nik Vandewyngaerde graduated as an engineer & architect at the KULeuven and Politecnico di Milano. He then worked for several years as an architect at Herzog & de Meuron in Basel. Robbe Vandewyngaerde is an architect & designer graduated at the ‘Accademia di architettura di Mendrisio’, Switzerland who worked for OMA in Rotterdam. They gained experience working on international projects ranging from large scale buildings, interior projects, renovations and furniture design.

At Studio Narra we build our own sur-real fictions. We like to conduct sensory experiences where our guests expect the unexpected, engage emotionally and leave with a feeling of wonderment. We believe in radical and optimistic proposals made in its most simplest and rawest form. We are not defined by style, time or method but by our ambition to tell compelling and seriously funny ideas.

Each project balances on the constant tension of rigidity and organic flows between spaces, light & darkness and the vernacular craft & global solutions. As conscious architects we take the contemporary climate policies as an opportunity to create new and relevant contributions to the built environment of tomorrow. The multiple facets of reaching a clean ecological footprint as durability, resilience, and renewable energies are key design elements at the beginning of every design.

Each project is defined by oxymorons which establish a unique framework with its own rules, textures and techniques.
