Philosophy

Our architecture wants to be powerful and personal. It aims to develop its own character, and it is fine with us, if our projects polarize. One may love our architecture or hate it, but it should not leave you indifferent.

We are convinced that there is never just one solution. Our projects have to be able to cope with the unforeseen, even accidental. Therefore, we tend to think in scenarios, we work with hypotheses, we generate antithetic alternatives. Each one of these projections into the future starts from different assumptions and tells its own story.

If we manage to develop projects that stand for themselves and manage to assert themselves in the urban fabric, we have reached our goal.
