is an architectural atelier focusing on conception and design of buildings and spaces not bound to typology, scale or function envisioned in an optimistic future. We embrace every design task as a new challenge, stripped of a priory concepts and images - and implement local and global design constrains (cultural, social, economic and environmental) to give meaning to matter and form. Architecture is not a matter of certain style as stated by H.Hübsch 1795 - but a cultural response and expression to immanent questions inherent in every project. We explore these questions through the use of novel tools and express them within contemporary mediums, digital and analog. We see architecture as an ongoing dialogue among the public, the client, the architects and other relevant and necessary fields of expertise and consultancy. Let us help to realize your ideas.
Our work explores all scales and media of design from installations to furniture up to buildings, landscapes and urban masterplans within the private and public sector trough all stages of design and production.
