DSRE+ is a design studio for architecture and multidisciplinary design projects founded in 2016 by Bez Baik and Sekwan Kim in London.
Our approach to design is through ‘RE’thinking. For us, the word of ‘re’ offers the opportunities to re-explore from the basic concept to the indefinite integration between other disciplines. Design should grow out of its origin where it comes from and re-discover the expandable value.
DSRE+ pursues extensibility and interdiciplinarity between architecture and other disciplines to investigate the design possibilities in a wide field from micro human scale to mega urban scale. We coordinate with other disciplines to understand how other disciplines think and work to relate into our design process. Our design is about creating new by crossing boundaries in between, and rethinking across disciplines.
