Architecture is experience. The built form dictates and informs how we live. Both inside and out, architecture shapes our lives to adhere to it’s material and immaterial existence.
Kuca is a design studio that focuses on making these experiences invaluable. Working across the disciplines of architecture, interior and design, we focus on creating outcomes that bind together social, cultural and commercial consciousness.
We are driven by a passion for improvement. Our thinking, strategies and investigations explore the relationships we have with architecture and design - be it residential, commercial, retail or hospitality - our aim is to develop holistic ideas that influence the everyday experience.
Every project undertaken at Kuca starts with a conversation. It takes us where we want to be - in a setting that encourages collaboration.
Kuca is the design studio founded by architect Vedad Huric.
Vedad has been experimenting with new design possibilities in the built environment for the past decade. He has broad experience in all facets of architecture from residential, commercial, institutional and retail.
