Hellolittlefuture has started a collaboration with Appelquist-Architects in New York.
Appelquist-Architects is an interdisciplinary practice engaging in architecture and design through an inclusive methodology or research, expansive collaboration and extensive experimentation. The work develops through the creation of a thorough design brief narrative, established with the client and through research ranging from typology, digital production, structure, material, program and use, to larger networks of social, cultural and environmental considerations. The scope of Appelquist-Architects’ research constantly shifts and expands as each individual project has the potential to engage a unique set of parameters, specific to its condition and usage. This process of “radical inclusion” allows Appelquist-Architects to participate in design at different scales – from product design, to private residences, to cultural institutions, to hotel and resorts.
Appelquist-Architects was founded by Claes-Henric Appelquist in 2013. Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, he received his Masters in Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2003. He joined Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) in New York in December 2004 where he worked for seven years as an Associate Senior Designer and Design Director of the Interiors Department.
There he developed an interdisciplinary approach toward architecture and design, which involves an inclusive methodology of research, expansive collaboration and extensive experimentation.
