Architecture and design are driven by the needs of people - both material and spiritual - and a concern for the physical context and the culture and climate of place. Equally, excellence of design and its successful execution are central to our approach.
Our goal is to encompass all the aspects of project creation, starting from the basic idea all the way to the final realization. We provide high quality services that are the result of our skill set, while simultaneously searching for new, innovative and creative solutions that respond to customers' demands.
From appointment to completion, the design and production is supported by in- and out-of-house disciplines.
A wide range of integrated services we can offer for our area of expertise include:
We have always been guided by the belief that the quality of our surroundings directly influences the quality of our lives, whether in the workplace, at home or the public spaces in between.
It is not just buildings, but everything from urban design to the smallest details, that affects our well-being.
Aesthetics are often the user’s first impressions of a project. What is the quality that attracts me to this space? Color, quality of light, materiality, etc. What deliberate choices have been made by the designer to create a beautiful and functional space?
Aesthetics are often thought of as surface-deep — but the visual perception of a building stands for so much more. For example, the use of exposed, raw materials and the expression of structure helps people understand the make-up of the space they stand within, increasing trust in the integrity of their environment. This might be experienced as a visual delight, but under the surface, it relates to the core principles and communicative skills of the architect that designed it. Each architect’s aesthetic language is rich with underlying meaning.
We believe the best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function; its ecology; the quality of natural light; the symbolism of the form; the relationship of the building to the skyline or the streetscape; the way you move through or around it; and last but not least its ability to lift the spirits.
This holistic approach is augmented by a strong commitment to the clients we serve, and also to the public domain and the many users involved. A high degree of personal service, coupled with respect for the precious resources of cost and time, is the best way to building strong client relationships.
We provide architectural planning and interior design services, ranging from modern office design to luxury home architecture with a special focus on the design of exclusive luxury hotels, bars and restaurants.
• Research / Analysis
• Building surveys
• Concept development
• Design assist
The smallest details of a building, from door handles to furniture, are often taken for granted, but it is these small elements with which users have direct contact. These components are like architecture in miniature: they must be functional, but they should also be pleasing to use - possessing good ergonomic, aesthetic and tactile qualities.
We design products that perfectly integrate form and everyday life’s function despite its purist aesthetics.
We also focus on practical construction and installation techniques to reduce on-site labor.
We create a positive first impression with every project.
We make industrial design and develop products for manufacture, which range from an ink pen to an entire suite of bathroom furniture.
• Research and analysis (audio, light, energy, etc.)
• Concept development
The advent of digital technologies has allowed us to design and build structures featuring complex geometric forms that would not have been feasible twenty years ago.
Our 3D thinking and vast experience in computer-aided design (CAD) lets us create and explore comprehensive 3D models and shop drawings prior to manufacturing.
• 2D drawing
• 3D modeling
• BIM (Building Information Modeling)
• Parametric modeling
• Light and insolation analysis
• 3D analysis, simulations & visualizations
• 3D static calculations & building physics
• 2D/3D animation & video
• Virtual reality
Advanced 3D computer modeling capabilities allow us to explore and test design solutions rapidly using 3D printers and to communicate data to consultants and contractors.
While new technologies have transformed the way we work, traditional model making still plays a crucial role and our model shop is capable of producing everything from sketch models to full size mock-ups.
We use the latest design software and manufacturing techniques, including computer numeric control (CNC) routers / laser cutters.
• Research & analysis
• Organization & coordination of production
We love combining different technologies into a smart solutions product (electronics, input sensors, processors, output devices).
Large number of our projects also include programming and networking.
• Databases (SQL, MariaDB, etc.)
• Macro programming (LISP, VBScript, RhinoScript, Python, etc.)
• Parametric modelling (Grasshopper)
• Smart devices (C++, Java, etc.)
• Networking devices (WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, Airplay, etc.)
In addition to our advanced design and production capabilities, we offer project management, design assistance, supervision and other consulting services.
This can keep your costs within or below the budget, ensure maximum quality and maintain the project schedule, while you can stay focused on your core business requirements.
Architects, designers, engineers usually only deal with separate parts of a project. We combine our skills to see the whole picture.
We also offer consultancy services and supervision over architectural concrete projects including design and production.
• Consultancy during design and production phase
• Problem solving
• Cost control
• Supervision (architecture, product design & concrete)
• Building surveys
• Project management
• Concrete mix design
