Karbon' architecture et urbanisme
- Karbon is a cooperative company that brings together very different but complementary profiles. All architects, all involved into various fields, they are deeply attached to the historical and contemporary processes of the urban fabric, from the very large (territory) to the very little (furniture).[...]
Each project is considered as a research, each research as a singular project.
After a series of collaborations and competitions (Europan, social housing, transformation..), KARBON settled up around a shared vision: Architecture and urban design are the instruments that help to create a rational layout for a social need of public and private space. This minimal rationalism is our approach to the sustainable society.
Bernard Baines, Victor Brunfaut, Géry Leloutre and Hubert Lionnez teach at the university of architecture La Cambre/Horta, in Brussels. With Matthieu Delatte, David Broekaert and Jean Garcin, KARBON is their shared platform with witch they work on projects of various scales, from furniture to urban design, always concerned with the architecture and the built environment.
