Lhoas & Lhoas is an architecture practice created in 1994 by brothers Pierre & Pablo Lhoas, working in various fields of architecture and design, based in Brussels and internationally active. For more than twenty years, the office has developed, locally and globally a large number of projects varying in scale and nature.
With an eye on the nourishment of the work, and across disciplines that are parallel and revolving around architecture, we invest in public and private projects, in designing spaces, pieces of furniture and scenographies, and intervening substantially in the fields of housing, art, restaurants, museography or office spaces.
The studio has, in particular, an extensive experience in the fields of renovation and transformation. Among the iconic creations are: the extension of the Palais des Beaux Arts in Charleroi, the renovation of the headquarters of the Parti Socialiste in Brussels, the Arts & Design Atomium Museum, a number of contemporary art galleries, retail refurbishment, offices and private residences in Brussels, but also in Paris, Lyon, Aix en Provence, Bordeaux or New York.The ethos of the practise: exhaustive curiosity- coupled with the desire to experiment in geometry, conventions, materials are disconcerted, creating new identities.
"We believe that architecture, as an cultural – artistic discipline, should correspond to the today’s society and its cultural productions. We also believe in the questioning that brings art and architecture. As well, in each project, we dialogue with context (client, site, budget) and review the typologies, materials, formal systems. This brings us not to develop a repetition of form registry, but to obtain versatile ‘ambivalences’."
