About us

Arch Bureau Borsch works in two main directions: bureau of architecture and educational programs. Our main focus is responsible practice of architecture and design. Educational program "Young architects society" is established to raise awareness and stimulate exploration of built environment.

Our vision of architecture and design is based on the multidisciplinary approach. Architects of the Bureau Borsch are able to combine strong technical knowledge with theory-based and design-oriented way of thinking.

We are interested in the space perception analysis, creation of atmospheres and spatial compositions.We do our best to work with ecological materials, to re-invent and to re-cycle vintage and retro objects.

Founders of the Bureau are architects with diverse backgrounds and solid work experience. They have studied and worked in Russia and the United States for several years before they decided to join their efforts in the Arch Borsch Bureau.
