Philosophy

We do not create architecture depending on special styles or principles, but by considering what essentially the situation requires.

We consider what people want to feel in the buildings, what makes them comfortable and happy, including elements such as: color, sound, smell, kind of brightness, flow of light and wind, form, space, forgotten feelings in a busy daily life, landscape and so on. All those elements touch people's senses, enthuse them and make them feel good.We also try to go beyond these elements and seek a universal solution.
