Arthur Micheron is a French architect who lives in Costa Rica since 2013. He graduated from Paris Malaquais in France where he did is Master degree. He founded Micheron Studio in 2016 to research, design and build significant and contextual architecture.
He works in collaboration with architects, engineers and interior designer to create specific bold team for each project.
We design for those who aspire to make a change in their lives, for people who invest in their future, for those who believe that architecture can change the way we live, for those who want to achieve their goals, for those who want to support local communities and be actors of change.
We do architecture, we give contextual answers to problems of individual and/or collective scale where we bring our experience and vision to create experiences and spaces according to the needs of their users and in intelligence with the parameters of the environment.
We believe in the constant optimization of our creative process. Each project enriches the next one with new knowledge in the way of designing or building. Research on new materials (bamboo, containers, steel frame…) and unique and timeless designs are the key to satisfy our clients. We look for the right tools to analyze, design and build according to the requirements of the client, the site and the context. We work hand in hand with professionals in each area who accompany us and help us to engineer optimized solutions by crossing perspectives and fields of expertise.
When we choose to initiate a project with our client, it is the beginning of a new fruitful relationship where the exchange contributes to translate great ideas into significant achievements.
Our firm base is in Costa Rica where we work in a tropical ecosystem that facilitates experimentation. The contact with nature allows us to develop our creativity and ingenuity to the maximum in order to build projects in perfect harmony with the environment. Continuous travels and contacts with local architecture worldwide in France, Japan, Denmark, Tunisia, Italy, Mexico, among others enrich our perspective of the world in which we live.
The project is located in a new office tower, in the district of Guachipelin, province of San José, Costa Rica.
Computing is based on simplifying complex elements, in order to improve its functionality. At a spatial level Koko office space intends to continue with this logic, simplifying different spaces to generate greater efficiency.
The office is a high funcional work space designed in a new way of interaction between people. No reception front desk, just a recognition system to create digital interaction at the entrance. No fixed workstations but an everyday new seat for each of the integrant that allow flexibility and avoid routine habits. People sit by group of projects needs to interact in a more efficient way.
The two long metal tables contrast with two geometrical sofas to work in a more casual way to allow creativity.
The big movable stairs allow to carry all the office team to work, set a presentation of interact with the meeting room who can also close for private meetings.
All the office has been designed with aluminium to make a strong statement and connect with the tech industry of the Koko company.
The lighting system follow the same logic of simplicity and enlight the minimalist approach of the whole design.
All the furniture and details has been designed speceficly for the project to make it unique.
