ABC series: Benjamin Piper, Killa Design on his architectural favourties

Architect, Benjamin Piper, Building, City, Killa Design

In this series called ABC, we choose an architect from the region and ask them to share their ABCs: their favourite architect, building and city.

Benjamin Piper, partner and design principal at Killa Design is the first in the ABC series, revealing his inspirations and professional favourites.

Architect: Geoffrey Bawa

I love the way that he uses simple, locally available materials to create spaces that merge architecture and nature.

Building: Rietveld Schröder House

When I visited it, I was struck by how incredibly modern it was yet, at the same time, it has a very charming, handmade quality of brass wheels and thin wooden panels. It worked beautifully on both an abstract and physical level.

City: Sana’a, Yemen

I went to Sana’a for a visa run, and it blew my mind. The place appeared like a film set of an Arabian period movie. It has such a rich urban quality and the people were incredibly generous.
