Marc Koehler Architects
Marc Koehler Architects (MKA) is an international design agency founded in 2005 by Dutch architect Marc Koehler. Based in Amsterdam, the practice comprises a multidisciplinary team of 25 architects, designers and engineers. MKA makes meaningful spaces and products that reflect new ways of co-living and explore a socially responsible way of making buildings. “We try to create valuable connections between buildings and their environment, the culture of its users and the latest technical possibilities,” says Koehler. “We aim to improve people’s lives by giving special attention to details in everyday situations and turning them into unique moments, using simple means. Architecture is thus not a luxury product but a creative mindset that can be applied at any spatial scale.” Currently, MKA is involved in the design of ecological dune houses, experimental collective housing projects, community buildings and urban design studies for self-made cities. MKA is the initiator of Superlofts. Marc holds a Masters in Architecture from the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft). MKA’s work has been recognised with the World Architecture Festival Housing Award (Completed Buildings) and Director’s Special Award in 2017 and Dutch Building Award in 2015.
