As part of the MIDIS ARCHI conference cycle, you are cordially invited by the interior architecture department of HEAD - Geneva to attend the conferences of KOMPIS and ATELIER 703.

Kompis is a Geneva based architectural practice run by 3 friends that studied together at the Polytechnical school of Lausanne. The studio is committed to the construction of carefully designed and functional buildings. Having a strong interest in the ordinary, Kompis aims to establish a sense of continuity between the project and its close surroundings. Their architecture focus towards durability, precision and usefulness, wich play in their sense a very important role in achieving sustainable construction.With meticulous attention to detail and a craftsman approach, they see each project as a tailored response to the specific need of both user, brief and context.

Atelier 703 is an architectural studio founded by Eliana Barreto, Maria João Cunha, and Bastien Guy. Its approach to work is based on an architecture that is defined by its critical sense, its concern for the context, and its attachment to cultural, social, and environmental aspects.
The studio is based between Lausanne and Lisbon. Its members have studied in France, Italy, Portugal, and Liechtenstein. This condition frees the office from tendencies and leads it to constantly re-evaluate the priorities of architectural design and production. Its practice does not rely on convictions instead, it uses the design process to generate ideas: The project produces knowledge!
Atelier 703 focuses its architectural practice on projects which take place in different contexts and explore a wide range of programs, from housing to the rehabilitation of heritage buildings, but also to the realization of school facilities, theatres, and administrative buildings. This condition illustrates atelier703's particular interest in several human nature matters and its ambition to take part in them and to understand their foundations and their close relationship.
Atelier 703 is particularly interested in the integration of the projects through a fine and careful understanding of the site. Aware that architectural interventions lead to the transformation of a place, their projects always prefer dialogue over confrontation and seek timeless interventions.
