Services

01.
idea

We start with an idea that flows through all further steps of project development. Better ideas provide better solutions. We are focused on individual project approach.

02.
design

Acting on the principle of “doing more with less,” we provide an optimal combination of beautiful, functional, sustainable, and reasonably priced design solutions.

03.
engineering

We use modern techniques and the latest research data to perform architectural analysis and engineering for every custom project.  

04.
management

“Communication” and “deadlines” are not simply buzzwords to us, but are foundational to our work ethic, showing deep importance for your schedule and money.

 
 

MEMBRANE (n.) - a pliable sheetlike structure acting as a boundary, lining, or partition in an organism.


 

Less is more

Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe

Simplicity is the key to membrane structures, using the least amount of effort necessary to achieve the best results. Membranes not only cover and protect, but serve as an aesthetic statement, catching one’s attention and driving interest and excitement.  Our task is to find the best way to deliver a uniquely pragmatic cover, protecting from outside impacts but mesmerizing the onlooker

Do more with less

Buckminster Fuller

Finding the optimal point between architectural styles, engineering abilities, and affordable materials and services best serves the client’s needs and budget. To achieve this point, we communicate and collaborate with other professionals to develop unique analysis, using optimized techniques. Our studio has a clear vision, that allows to complete more projects in a shorter timeframe. Our desire to acquire the newest technologies allows us to advance to newer levels of efficiency and precision, producing unique solutions to do more with less.

5th building material

There are four common building materials: concrete, steel, wood and glass. These are, literally, the building blocks of the industry. Every architect is familiar with their advantages and disadvantages, specialties, and area of application. These classical materials are limited by various constrictions, including geometry, practicality, and constructional limitations. The introduction of the membrane allows us to move past these limitations,

At the start of the 21st century and continuing, the development of the idea that actual fabric membrane-like material is a new solution for various applications and fits so perfectly into project development that is has been called the 5th building material. Fabric roofing provides an extreme span/weight ratio that is impossible to achieve with other material combinations. The invention and wide usage of ETFE film has led to unthinkable ratios, allowing ETFE-film inflated cushions that weigh about 1% of similarly built glass structures.  

We here at Mem.Brane believe that membrane structures have an extremely wide array of applications and will constantly research new areas for usage and applicability. We are passionately dedicated to using membrane structures for our projects to achieve the optimal ratio between all aspects.
