/ POINT OF DEPATURE



Imagine that you are a client, you are attempting to create an interesting building project, you are open to new architectural approaches and curious about the creative design process …

What can you expect from us?

Let us show you the future! We present you fictions of rooms, buildings and squares…

You can dream about it, WE CAN REALIZE IT!


We think in concepts and argue for new spatial experiences. It is important to us to understand development and change as an opportunity for creative power, which generates added values for the users in relation to the built environment. Building culture is always a reflection of society. Through holistic concepts and a thoughtful design of the spatial environment, we want to provide a contribution to contemporary building culture.


We always refer to the existing environment, both the urban context and historical markers or local building traditions. Through active engagement with societal, socio-economic and technological issues, we seek a basis for a new contemporary approach in architecture. We think in scenarios and choreographies, and consequently about the dissolution of boundaries in architecture.


To anticipate the future coexistence of people and to create an architectural framework for it.
To fulfill desires of a modern society by translating these into contemporary architecture.
To give dwellers of future urban fabrics innovative opportunities to express themselves spatially.
To dissolve the built borders in their traditional form.

“The medium is the message”

Marshall Mc Luhan

We perceive our projects as extensions of content, expressions of the identity of a personal, collective or institutional body. To quote Marshall McLuhan, “The medium is the message.”

We are specialists in intricate building tasks.

We are specialists in intricate building tasks, both adaptations of existing structures and new buildings. A multitude of highly complicated building projects have afforded us with the knowledge of how to translate innovative concepts into actual structures. This is only possible with a network of diverse experts, the management of which we see as our responsibility.An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all

To Lab

An integral aspect of our work is an experimental approach to topics and tasks.

An integral aspect of our work is an experimental approach to topics and tasks. The potential of digital tools in conjunction with innovative materials and fabrication methods allows us to realize innovative ideas and thought models on a scale of 1:1. Thus, we produce prototypes, furniture and accessories as well as installations and set designs.
