Like a kind of alchemy, the results of architecture can far exceed the mere collection of it’s parts.

But the mediocrity of convenience and fashion press in on us on all sides, eroding the sublime potential of individual expression.

If we can step outside of this, we can dream out loud…


Atelier BORONSKI is developing a strong and fluid design vocabulary across a diverse range of building types, that generates elegant, durable and dramatic buildings. Significant research and analysis is brought to bear on every project, often in collaboration with specialists from related fields. Evocative materials, intelligent engineering and environmentally sensitive strategies are all employed to bring our designs to life. The results we are striving for generate a built environment that is elegant, engaging and uplifting.
