About Us

The Serious Bureau is born from a conversation between 2 friends. Lucas Issey, Brazilian architect and founder of Y Arquitetos in Curitiba, Brazil and Omri Ben-Canaan French entrepreneur, co-founder/CEO of Kosong Satu Group in Bali.

They both were appalled by how boring the whole architecture / building space was in Bali and that nothing really creative or avant-garde was available.
All industry actors seem to align themselves on making the same boring villas with the same materials (please no more alang-alang roofs!) without any real research or originality.

The Serious Bureau wants to change that and be disruptive in any way it can.

Its mission is to rethink architecture altogether.

Its motto: F**k boring.
