akken is an architecture and design studio based in Paris.
we offer intelligent, meaningful and aesthetically acute design solutions, and help people shape their desirable spaces.
We work on private commands designing exciting living places,
new homes, extensions and interiors. We believe in the unique character of every project and we strive towards unleashing all its potentialities in terms of value, functionality and beauty.
Along with our residential work, we research and experiment new aesthetic and spatial programs which convey innovative thinking about architectonic forms that explore new physical and emotional experiences of the space.
Our architecture is diverse while it shares a common taste for solutions that privilege, light, openness, flexibility, fluidity and a constant quest for elegant simplicity.
Architecture is a witness of the society as a whole human production spanning objects, buildings, cities and landscape.
We embrace the progress of our time in terms of technology and draw inspiration from different expressions of the arts, culture and lifestyle trends, while pursuing for singularities that shape our vision of the future.
Design is a posture towards the surrounding physical world aiming at transforming it for the better, by fostering a perfect symbiosis between it's engineering and it's aesthetics. The success of design whether it's an object or a space can be measured by the quality and the intensity of the experiences it can trigger, inspire, or allow to happen.
