About Bionique (French, it is pronounced – /bjɔnik/)

what does BIONIQUE mean?

Common meanning:

Meaning in architecture:

– Bionic architecture is a contemporary movement that studies the physiological, behavioural, and structural adaptions of biological organisms as a source of inspiration for designing and constructing expressive buildings.

Meaning in our case:

Bionic has a more symbolic / transferred meaning – it stands for the principle / approach to solving problems in architecture in accordance with the principles of preservation of natural values, with a sense of environment and the identity of the location. Every project originates and grows out from the location. As such, it relies on modern technical and constructive solutions and adequate materials in order to achieve better performance and better exploitation of facilities.

HISTORY:

Architecture office Bionique was founded in 2009 by Adam Špehar as a studio for interior design and 3D visualizations. During the last 10 years, the bureau has been active in parallel with other engagements of the founders in the field of architecture, while in 2021 it changes the structure and becomes the main engagement with a clearly defined vision of architectural practice.

Bionique is an architecture office that applies modern constructive and technical knowledge, principles and measures of energy efficiency and specific concepts for each location and project task of the client, taking into account the entire life cycle of buildings.

OUR MISSION:

From the very beginning, our practice has focused on creating human-oriented design, as well as sustainable design. We have determined that our environmental and social commitment will be focused on the development and creation of energy efficient projects with zero carbon dioxide (zero-carbon) emissions and on buildings that use environmentally friendly construction techniques, materials and energy sources.
