BUREAU_Relief15649 - copie Continuez

Atelier Relief is several things at once: an artists’ residence with a perpetually open door, but also a place where objects are created, inspired by a unique idea of ‘deframing’, which gives images a new perspective. Behind this concept is the French duo Farid Issa and Thomas Erber. Continue

It’s an improbable juxtaposition of styles the Belgian architect has a knack for combining.Continue
