About us

Street Monkey Architects is a Stockholm-based architecture studio dedicated to designing stimulating, social and ecologically balanced habitats for humans.

In 2010, Cage completed a Doctorate of Architecture from the University of Hawaii. The last two years of this Doctorate program were spent in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. It was in this collaboration with KTH that Cage began exploring the process of designing prefabricated modular passive buildings. During this time he met Ingrid Westman and from this collaboration grew two companies: Friendly Building – to build modular passive buildings and Street Monkey Architects – to design them. In addition to the University of Hawaii, Cage studied urban design at DIS in Copenhagen and has a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Before moving to Hawaii he worked as a set decorator and interior designer in San Fransisco. After completing his degree in 2010 he worked for Ahlqvist and Almqvist Arkitekter and Strategisk Arkitektur as part of their urban planning team.

In late 2015 Bogdan Chipara joined the Street Monkey team. Bogdan brings international competition experience as well as mad parametric design skills to the studio with experience from Atelier Zündel Cristea in Paris, Atelier Marko Brajovic in São Paulo and 3GATTI in Shanghai. His work is exceptional and we are really excited about his future.
