KOGAA is an international creative agency working across the ﬁelds of Architecture, Urban planning, Interior and Product design based in Brno, Czech Republic.
KOGAA designs, directs and executes projects from concept through to creation. Thanks to its in-house specialists in engineering and interior design, projects are internally supervised at all times and in all project’s aspects. Operating across many scales, KOGAA’s core ambition that moves each project is to challenge the boundaries of architecture in innovative and unexpected ways, balancing creative excellence with social and technical demands. KOGAA believes in research as an essential design tool, since every project is unique and needs to be approached accordingly to its speciﬁc issues. A thorough study on the program, typologies, functions, site and historical background is essential for unique outcomes.
