Producing an architecture that responds to needs, inspires experiences and creates possibilities is fundamental. It is about building new spatial locations which are the key to stimulating encounters.

JKLN Architect distinguishes herself by her approach - sensitive, contained and mastered - which aims to bring out a pre-existing potential. Her practice has been built on the search for the way of constructing at a monumental scale without neglecting the sense of fragility.
Sensitive to the inspiration provided by the locations, to the spirit of the ruins, to the memory of a site, to its landscape, JKLN Architect defends the idea that a poetry emanates from each terrain whatever its state of degradation. Viewing of the site becomes a generator for designing of the project, transforming it but also revealing the essence of each location.
This desire to intervene in pre-existing locations, be they urban, landscape or architectural, is not neutral. Concerned with respect for local characteristics, JKLN Architect approaches a project by researching the intrinsic qualities of the places where it operates. This research requires an awareness of the constituent and characteristic elements.
The approach we adopt may be in continuity or in rupture. This may seem like a doctrinal ambivalence, but it simply reflects our desire to re-examine the identity, character, and boundaries of each place.
JKLN Architect advocates an architecture that integrates and not that seeks to be seen regardless of the damage it causes. She practises a respectful architecture without erasing it. An architecture that is anchored by its composition. Her geometry is fundamentally constructive. Her structure generates space, character and dialogue with light. Always in search of a new narrative and pictorial dimension. An architecture that nourishes reflection. A timeless architecture but also intimately linked to the space that is attributed to it when it is positioned on a floor, which is created by its presence. A moving architecture, responding to a practice, a demand and participating in the beautification of cities. She pays attention to both the functionality of a building and the comfort of the one who will walk it, feel it, and live. The challenge is to create a new living environment.
Strength, elegance, sensitivity, accuracy, wonder, critical thinking and radicalism are the key words that inspire JKLN Architect and reveal her commitment, both in her practice in the studio and in her research and teaching practice at different schools in Europe. Always looking for a new look, here or elsewhere.
