AKB is the architecture studio of Robert Kastelic and Kelly Buffey, architects dedicated to the practice and art of building.
Founded in 2004, the architecture of Atelier Kastelic Buffey is distinguished by its clarity of vision, poetics of space and attention to detail. A quiet simplicity is achieved through a rigorous process and commitment to conceptual intent. With a unified approach to interior-exterior relationships, AKB transforms the ephemeral into the tactile, creating architecture with a palpable sense of space.
Pragmatic elements of volume, light, proportion and materiality are studied to develop refined experiences that respond to each project's unique site, context and program. The resulting buildings are engaging, elegant and functional with an exceptional warmth.
AKB enjoys working in close collaboration with clients to ensure all needs are met. Through research of relevant data, theories and precedents, the studio combines the practical and the abstract to establish concentrated and creative solutions with an inherent consciousness toward sustainability.
