Designer Crush | Mark & Vivi
Two awesome designers today for the price of one today! Mark Fekete and Viviana de Loera AKA Mark & Vivi is an interdisciplinary design-build studio based in Montreal, Canada. Those two designers began their collaboration after graduating from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where they both received degrees in architecture. Their first project, transforming an old tyre shop into a home / office / gallery, all in just 800 square foot! Tall order right? Well it was beautifully accomplished with just one thing in mind…sustainability. I love the abondant use of locally sourced Canadian plywood, the low-VOC treatments on all exposed surfaces as well as low-emissivity windows and doors shielding the space from the harsh Montreal winters.Without forgetting that pop of colour throughout. Can’t wait to show you more projects from these two! What do you think?
