STUDIOTOGGLE is a young Architectural Practice based in Kuwait. The Practice was formed in 2011 in Vienna, Austria by Architects Hend Almatrouk and Gijo Paul George, both graduates of the acclaimed University of Applied Arts, Vienna (dieAngewandte). STUDIOTOGGLE aims to combine digital form finding and engineering techniques with an ethical and sustainable architectural practice. The office specializes in finding logical design solutions using cutting edge technologies, be it in the fields of Architecture, Interior or Product Design.
Instead of developing a stylistic agenda, STUDIOTOGGLE prefers to approach the fundamental issues of Light, Proportion and Form based on their combined effect on the senses of each individual who occupies the said Space. Always striving towards achieving a purity of geometry and form, STUDIOTOGGLE is restrained in the use of functional ornamentation but does not eschew it.
Operating in Kuwait since 2012, Studio Toggle has delivered 2 completed projects and 4 more projects are under various stages of construction.
