BEAU Architects was founded in Hong Kong in 2014 by Charlotte Lafont-Hugo and Gilles Vanderstocken. The studio has since evolved into a team of various fields and origin, all contributing to a critical methodology and rigorous production. Since the beginning, their agenda is based on the exploration of archetypes and the application of classical tools through an experimental approach. Their projects, as different they can be, are obsessively articulated around the notions of context, program, materiality and construction. Highly narrative, the resulting body of work displays an expressive austerity questioning the relation between objectives and the means to achieve them. In addition to the studio, Gilles Vanderstocken is teaching at Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design since 2014.
