SAQ is a conceptual and interdisciplinary design agency specialized in developing spatial sceneries and concepts.
The practice relies on a broad range of competencies where architects, interior designers, urbanists, video-artists and graphic designers team up according to the specific orientation or necessities of each project. SAQ believes strongly in co-operation and regularly invites professional experts or companies to participate in the materialization or the elaboration of an idea.
For SAQ scale is no parameter. Intensive research, sketching, simulation, and dialogue are the fundaments of an intensive creative process leading to proposals for both small scaled designs and macro-planning.
The subjects on which SAQ is asked to ponder diverge from the common architecture commissions: the studio can be asked to contribute concepts for marketing strategies as well as for visual animations for public events.
Even though diverse, each project or concept undertaken by SAQ thrives to deliver to its end-user powerful and moving experiences where all senses can be stimulated and where the materialized space almost forms an event in itself. As long as there is a creation of sense and physical and human relations are created.
For every commission, SAQ thinks the relation installed with the client during the creating process is vital. A successful project is always the fruit of passionate and constructive debates between client and studio. With as ultimate goal the satisfaction of the end-user.
Retail projects such asl'Eclaireur (Paris-FR), or the restaurant 'Kwint' (Brussels-BE) are some of the latest high-end realizations of SAQ’s interior architecture department.
Currently, SAQ is also engaged in the masterplan outline for mixed use development in two major European capitals being Brussels and Berlin where the offices are equally located.
