KATOxVictoria is a young creative office founded in 2011 by Hiroshi Kato and Victoria Diemer Bennetzen. KATOxVictoria is a cross-cultural constellation between a Danish and a Japanese architect exploring the borderlands between design, art and architecture. We are a laboratory that investigates basics typologies and terms and try to reunderstrand our build culture. Since we have both lived and worked Denmark and Japan we  find ourselves with one leg in both countries professionally as well as personally. This relation has become the balance and clash that defines our work, a condition where few common references are given, no norms are a matter of course and all misunderstandings are greeted as essential inspiration. So far our built work has been realized in collaboration with dedicated architecture and arts students, skilled craftsmen, ambitious clients and manufacturers along with visionary contractors. Reality is the very essence of our work, we enjoy when projects develop and qualify as they are realized by hands across profession, experience and skill.
