Studio Focketyn Del Río

Focketyn Del Río Studio. Miquel del Río and Hans Focketyn met in 2005 working in leading architecture firms in Basel and developed a relation based in the cultural scene of the Swiss city. They started collaborating punctually as independent offices from 2012 and found matching paths in a certain way of seeing architecture, leading naturally to the opening of Focketyn Del Río Studio in 2013.

Focketyn Del Río Studio works in a wide range of scales varying from small refurbishes to master plans and from private commissions to open competitions. It has been awarded with several competition prices and recognitions, including Kaserne Kopfbau Umbau (the refurbish of the military barracks in Basel into cultural centre, a major project in the city) and Foundation Award 2014 (given to the most promising architecture practice in Switzerland each year).
