In this mansion, an old Bordeaux hotel, the living space is revealed by the encounter between past and present. It is in the interpretation and the articulation of the existing architectural signs that has emerged the project, where each new architecture fragment fits and dances in its context.
Martins Afonso Atelier de Design
The workshop created by Mickaël Martins Afonso in 2016 is a reflection on a multidisciplinary career, cradled by studies of visual arts, applied arts, space design, and last but not least architecture, thus enclosing a journey rich in human and intellectual experiences.
He collaborated for several years with Brochet Lajus Pueyo, an architecture company in Bordeaux, attested by his professional commitment as project manager.
Meanwhile, he has kept on his research work on photography, design, carpentry, prototyping, and artistic installations, adding a complementary practice to architecture. He has nourished a particular look, on the reports of scales as well as on details. This spirit of openness is felt today in his practice.
