(ma!ca) architecture

5 Rue Jeanne d'Arc, 34000 Montpellier, Francia

(ma! ca) is an architecture agency born from the meeting of two architects whose streets intersect at the confluence of a creative exploratory complementarity and a common identity rigor. They are convinced that there are no possibilities and that their connection is the cause-effect relationship: in 2015 they decide to create (but! Ca). (ma! ca) symbolizes the union of their meeting punctuated by two distinct but inseparable entities. (ma! ca) refers to a rotational root plant of the Brassicaceae family whose beneficial medicinal properties are well known. They believe that architecture contributes to the phenomenon of public health and that they can play a significant role in the well-being of the user. Their architecture therefore focuses on the care of those who practice it in relation to the contextual genetic heritage already present. The value in use is a fundamental factor in the development of the project. They are not satisfied with just one form. The project finds its genesis in an articulation and a hierarchy of space by the program. In a rigorous detail that gives depth to each element of the project. And in the choice of materials that accompanies his understanding. They appreciate the know-how and decline their exercise in the image of the architect-craftsman. Their architecture is manual and personalized. It develops a close dialogue with the other: the owner, the design office and the craftsman. They are not satisfied with a face-to-face relationship, but rather with a reciprocal and enriching listening that gives substance to the material. (ma! ca) is a family in which the different actors of the project mix. Each project is a new story that we want to tell: they are marked by their journey that undeniably orients our thinking: Maya Brudieux lived in Rotterdam and Saint Jean du Gard and Camille Morcrette in Montreal and Marseille. Their writing is tinged with modernity and we seek a balance that combines radicalism and surrealism
