Architecture agency, Hong Kong
Beau architects was founded in Hong Kong in 2014 by practitioners Charlotte Lafont-Hugo and Gilles Vanderstocken. Since its creation, the office is focusing on art-related projects: galleries, exhibitions, artworks and art centres. With their growing expertise in art spaces, they are particularly interested in questioning the classical antagonism between the white cube as an art-space archetype and a more singular approach for its resolution. Gilles Vanderstocken achieved his M.Arch with Honours from ISALL (Belgium) in 1998. He is an architect with 18 years experience in Europe & Asia. He is currently teaching at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design. Charlotte Lafont-Hugo achieved her M.Arch with Honours from La Cambre-Horta University (Belgium) in 2011.
