about us DAR612 is a family run architecture studio that designs contemporary living and work spaces. In our creative process, continuously present from the first design assignment to the building construction, we merge architectural knowledge and experience with our personal aesthetic expression. By being intensely involved in our projects, we build a trusting relationship with our clients, ensuring that their aspirations and needs, along with our design visions, are met in the most successful and creative way.
full service architecture We approach our projects using the principles of total design, which enables a holistic creative process. Whether our project is of a small scale or it is a large design intervention, the possibilities and the creative output derived from the design solution are treated equally. In a relationship with our clients we aim to create a comprehensive connection. Depending on continuing needs and requirements, our work implies full service and support to our clients during all phases, as well as responsibility for numerous creative choices and interventions in which we fully participate - from the beginning to the end.
process A sensation of warmth of a home, a pool on a house roof, or a tangible, specific idea chosen as a creative potential - make a perfect first step of a design assignment. A process that follows involves defining a programme that would completely meet all wishes and requirements, both those that are not perceived at first and those new ones, inspired by the creative act of design.
objectivity It is very simple to recognize the users' pragmatic needs as well as their values. We respect this essence of architecture, and treat it as a creative input for our work process. Everything beyond our clients' genuine needs and feelings is an essential realm of our freedom and creativity, open to our client's consideration and reflection. We use our knowledge and constructive detachment to resolve the moments of uncertainty, when our guidance and suggestions are regularly accepted as the client's final preference.
time Creative design takes time. Sometimes the idea originates in one afternoon, and in some cases it takes a lot of time and effort; however, it is fundamental to ensure sufficient time for the initial phase of designing. Everything that we create (or fail to create) during that initial phase affects the final result. What follows after that first creative moment is a professional effort with a determined schedule and methodology.
our house We continuously try to implement the experience of designing our own home in our work:
How to fit the needs in square meters?
How to compensate site imperfections?
How to treat second thoughts?
How to cope with wishes given up due to low budget?
How to “survive” a construction site?
How to deal with uncertainty and anticipation at the end?
How to move in “mentally”?
The challenges and limits we had to confront in the course of designing and construction of our house, the way we handled them, and finally, the pleasure of finding the right solution, yielded with an irreplaceable personal and professional experience. That unique experience is being built into every following project for the benefit of the final "product".
