Studio8 is an architecture and material design lab working between crafts and digital tools to bring forward new planet- centered solutions for space design, materials and waste reclaim. The creative practice lies between the bounderies of architecture, material design, digital scenography and urban strategies.

Our Values

1

We are optimists and we strive to create an optimistic reality for the planet.

2

Planet-human-centered we believe in designing people’s needs without overstepping
the limits of our planet.

3

Observe – Learn – Create.
We are enthusiastic about the future and curious about the world, and we bring that to our work. We are travelers constantly inspired by other cultures, textures and landscapes.

4

5

Uniqueness – our products are high-end and unique as they embrace resourcefulness and customization.

6

We believe in inclusivity and that change can’t be done alone, we work together with
creatives, experts and digital tools, opening space for experimentation and new material expressions.

Our Mission

1

Propose a cyclical approach to space design, by acknowledging waste actual value and resourcefulness. We harvest the raw goods from demolition to give them a new life, avoiding the
classical take-make-discard model.

2

Implement an alternative design process, where ideas and construction waste is worked out in situ together with creatives, experts and digital tools, opening space for experimentation and new material expressions.

3

Preserve spatial memories. By reusing old materials from demolition, we create new narratives about the geology and geography of a place, without freezing its history.

4

Design inclusive, functional and colourful spaces, adaptable to people’s ordinary life. We seek that each project has its own identity, stimulating new and positive perceptions.
