Alkema Studio by Jen Alkema Architect
Alexander Zaxarov
Nov 28, 2019

Jen Alkema’s minimalism goes beyond an economy of language and material; it is a way of perceiving the world, a personal attitude rather than an application of style or method.

“Alkema’s interiors, often executed in a limited space, exude a feeling of spaciousness, allowing the eye to roam freely, discovering the play of light and shadow, the rhythm of vertical and horizontal planes, the view from one space to another, the tactile opulence of surface materials such as slate, limestone, ebony and oak.

Details serve not as mere decoration, but are a key to understanding the architecture as a whole. Alkema is fascinated by the potential of details, their concentrated power of expression, to influence the experience of space. Alkema’s primary objective is not to produce a definitive work of beauty.”
