Arqzyme aims to transmit a new way of building and understanding “the act of inhabiting”, by means of a new proposal of interaction among humans and the matter surrounding them.
The bond between architecture and earth invites us to contemplate nature as a great source of materials, shapes and concepts with which we can build an architectonic language capable of providing a response to human needs. The choice of the location is an essential factor when choosing this language and its relationship with the environment.
Arqzyme conceptual philosophy contemplates those spatial concepts aimed at enhancing the warmth and privacy of spaces, and tries to give a soul to the built project, by recovering the handicraft values of details, and a response to the location and environment where it is built.
This conceptual philosophy employs an architectonic language that seeks to regain the sense of materiality, by using natural materials that allow more intense contact with their surfaces, which will show their age with their gradual wear, providing a sense of authenticity.
The different elements of this architectonic language provide us with the opportunity to respond differently in each project: elements such as the Foundation hole, worked in accordance with a concrete way of understanding indoor-outdoor relationship, the Structure, as the definer of spaces with its order, and the Wall, with its presence at the time of defining the boundaries of the spaces with the multiple shapes and textures, providing this flexibility with movement or stasis.
The coexistence among noble materials gives expression to Arqzyme architectonic language. Wood, stone, bio-concrete, steel, wicker, cork, natural and biological mortars, organic paints, natural plaster free of chemical binders, natural insulation free of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and CO2 emissions, hemp-mortar, etc. are some of the many materials that allow us to provide indoor spaces and exterior volumetry with a particular character.
