Based between Singapore, Jakarta, London and Paris, Atelier Pendhapa is engaged in projects across Europe and South-East Asia since 2019. Founded by Antonin Hautefort and Ignatio Tenggara, Pendhapa seeks a holistic approach to the practice of architecture with the ambition to dissolve the boundaries between site, product and architecture.
Antonin and Ignatio founded Pendhapa Atelier together in 2019. While Antonin grew up in France, Ignatio comes from Indonesia. It is partly their radically different cultural background, partly their fascination for local craftsmanship that motivated them to build an enterprise together.
Both architects by training, they met at the Architectural Association in London while completing their master of Architecture. Prior to starting Pendhapa Atelier, Antonin and Ignatio were both part of international architectural design practices on projects in the USA, the UK, France, South Africa, and Singapore.
As the studio aims to pursue design experimentation alongside its current projects, Antonin and Ignatio are currently architectural design course tutor at the South East University of Nanjing, China and visiting design tutor at the Architectural Association School of Architecture,
