     AR Office (Artetxe Renwick Office) is a group of architects, artists, designers, researchers, and builders. We are interested in an architecture that questions what the current standards prescribed for a given situation are. Our architectural design is focused on the blending of art, sensations, emotions, and space. Our design process is characterized by deep inquiry and collaborative exchange; design work is informed by intensive research and an experimental approach. We strive to invent innovative, environmentally responsible design solutions and create spaces that establish healthy connections between people and their environments.

     Each final design combines these components along with economics and social responsibility to create an architecture that is unique to our clients. Our projects span scales, from large, urban proposals to small residential projects, to architecture installations.
