  • A house in Yarmouk

    A house in Yarmouk

    This Kuwait City House by Studio Toggle is home to two independent young families. The volume is divided in the middle into two identical units housing the private quarters of each family. These identical units are capped on the top and bottom by a shared roof terrace and a shared basement that has parking facilities for 10 cars and a banquet hall. The client’s brief called for a very dense program relative to the allowed footprint and also for the two...

    LANTERN HOUSE | AL SALAAM

    Studio Toggle Architects were commissioned to create a fresh design for a private residence, for which planning permissions were already obtained. Rather than starting from scratch, which meant huge delays and cost overruns, we proposed a series of measured modifications,...

    HOUSE.IV | QURTUBA

    House.IV in Qurtuba is designed around the client's desire for long partially shaded portico's and clean spaces.

    BLOOM MY DEAR

    BLOOM MY DEAR

    BLOOM MY DEAR, it’s about time. You are a survivor, fire-baptized. Ripped apart, you have pulled through. The time has come to break the mold. Celebrate! The time is now! Celebrate! It’s free warsaw. The rotunda, built in the 60’s is truly a survivor in the rapidly changing architectural and political scenario of warsaw. Though it cuts a lonely figure in the city center, its iconic folded roof is one of the most recognized architectural features in warsaw. The existing curtain walled façade...

    De_Canyon

    Acknowledging that the city is nothing but the product of a myriad network of interactions and flows, re-organized and regulated by a highly evolved system of pattern recognition, the project aims to find urban solutions for the city of Cagliari in Sardinia, Italy. Taking fields, nodes and agents as the building blocks of urbanity, the relations and perturbations are mapped, giving rise to generative patterns. Based on this logic, the project strives to find a balance between adaptive non-programmed spaces and...

    Arena Venom

    Arena Venom

      How does one rethink an opera? There is no lack in ambition. But more often than not ambition becomes pretentious. The constant all consuming urge for innovation can be destructive and self serving. But there is no mistaking the impact of creative processes fueled by these seemingly undesirable traits. To dissect the traditional opera, gnawing away at the foundations of the sacred opera house till that threshold is reached when the hierarchies are disintegrated, when the instrument becomes the artist, and artist the...

    Pneumatic Grove

    The pneumatic grove is essentially an accessible artificial landscape. Pressurized air is pumped through tubes on to long appendages made of nylon, which in turn holds up the appendages. The rows of appendages responds to the strong prevalent winds, introducing turbulence. Depending on how you perceive it, the installation may resemble tentacles of a mythical creature or a temparamental swaying forest, although we prefer the latter. The sound of the air being pumped, and the swaying motion of the appendages...

      A frozen trajectory becoming an urban mnemonic device inspired the design of the new facade for the Pushkinsky cinema. A witness to history's turbulence and cycles of change, the Pushkinsky (originally Rossiya) personify the very definition of metamorphosis and change. Having much in common with the movies she exhibits, she saw her young days in the limelight as well as a steady decline and fall from grace. Emerging again as the most important cinema in the glamorous new Moscow, it...
