At Figr we successfully achieve our commercial project objectives through unique design solutions that stem from a meticulous, methodical and progressive approach to design.

FIGR is an award winning architecture studio established by Adi Atic and Michael Artemenko. Working with FIGR is an open, conversational experience. Our inclusive, friendly but focused attitude allows us to engage carefully with our clients’ desires, physical project constraints, budgets, time frames, compliance and construction processes.

Personal, committed and driven, this determined methodology gives us the scope to refine, process and create the architecture we believe in – architecture that engages all our senses.

APPROACH.

A PROCESS OF DISCOVERY
The most important part of creativity, discovery is the work before the work that magnifies the true particulars of a project. It builds a wealth of knowledge, confidence, and understanding. This facet of the design approach deeply embodies our name. FIGR reflects the essence of exploration and at the same time, the exciting prospect of what is to come.

WE STRIVE FOR IDENTITY AND PLACE MAKING
Our design approach explores a philosophical agenda on how architecture can provide a platform for evolution that negotiates various cultural, contextual community objectives. The synthesis of the above endeavours to create a sense of place and identity through the means of our architectural framework.

WE NEED COLLABORATION
To realise greater potential in every project, we take an applied and collaborative approach with our clients. They become part of problem-solving because discovery is about intakes not out-takes. Then, through a synthesis of architecture, art and technology we ceaselessly explore the dialogue between space and people to unearth the right ideas.

Anna is a highly creative and analytical thinker who approaches the design process with rigor and attention to detail, whilst always keeping an eye on the big picture. I have a genuine curiosity in the needs and brief of the client, and how considerate architecture and design can ultimately benefit the end user.

As a registered architect with broad-ranging industry experience over various scales and sectors, I have a particular interest in educational and residential buildings. She is a fastidious and highly capable documenter who has worked on all aspects of the building from façade detailing to joinery. These skills have recently been tested as the designer and builder of her own home.

Alongside Anna’s work as an architect, she designs and builds furniture, and continues to practice as an artist and illustrator. These varied creative pursuits provide a wealth of knowledge, giving her a unique and practical sensibility when it comes to material, composition, and tectonics.
