of the studio is defined as interdisciplinary work relating present-day reality to local identity. When creating the architectural content to fit and fulfil the available empty space, we always consider the values of the past and environmental concerns as well as modern architectural views and trends.
The design focus is based on the premise of “perfect simplicity”, a desire to create spaces and architecture in coexistence with nature as well as cultural heritage: clear ideas, simple and comprehensible forms and indubitable structure are the leading principles. It is hard to reduce our style of work to words but it could generally be described as Sense and Sensuality. We feel that understanding the sensual nature of space and our perception of it is even more important than the rational (formal) design. As almost all our realized projects have been set in a beautiful and spectacular natural landscape, we had been able to upgrade the formal design into the interweaving relationship of the constructed and the natural, always proceeding upon the assumption that nature was the key.
