A strong emphasis is placed on project specific design clarity and coherent detailing. The conceptual design of each project is unique and sensitive to the needs of the client, the physical constraints of the site, the relevance of the physical and social context, the project’s potential impact on the environment and last but not least, the project budget.

The current project portfolio is progressively expanding and gradually becoming more diverse. To date work has been done in the following fields: residential, hospitality, historic conservation & renovation, and light industrial. An aim is to include public buildings and work for the public sector in due course.
