Our team

We are a group of architects and designers creating an interdisciplinary design studio.
The implemented tasks deal with architecture, interior and product design. Our ideas are characterized by bold and unconventional approach to various themes. The name of our studio was taken from the Latin ‘genius loci’ signifying the caring spirit of the place and refers to the design method in which we seek relationship and context. We attach great importance to harmonious, consistent and functional design, searching for inspiration in the surrounding world.

The Genius Loci Architekci brand was established in 2007 by architects – Maria Rypuła and Jacek Rypuła.
