ajstudio is an architecture practice based in brussels that effectively mixes the complementary fields of architecture, interior and furniture design. founded in 2010 by annick branders and jonathan girvan, their projects showcase an integrated multidisciplinary process that tells a unique story. their latest work consisted in transforming a former laundry then office into their creative space. the design concept aimed to reintroduce natural light, to create a strong link with the exterior and to rediscover the original skeleton of the building. a span has been opened, giving place to an external patio where interior and exterior limits are blurred by a total open feeling given by the glass garage doors that add a sense of limitless space.

at the inside patio of ajstudio offices, a one-piece brutalist bench-wall-tablet contributes to an active and visual in-and-out experience, as well as a relaxing space. the raw concrete floors voluntary faces a white enlightened space underlined by the black steel frames that are warmed-up with slight touches of wooden transitions and furniture. this project naturally mixes architecture, interiors, and furniture in a simple and subtle way.
