Our approach towards design is holistic and evolutionary. We believe in the advancement of architecture through imaginative design based in feasible decisions. Imagination and feasibility are the two poles that push knowledge towards new boundaries. The understanding of complex requirements, available technology and physical principles set the basis of a fruitful creative process that triggers creativity through experimentation. Once decisions are made, the optimization of production processes provides optimal material outputs that have one single aim: MAKE LIFE BETTER IN THEM
We approach architecture from a wide range of disciplines and practices, from history and theory to digital manufacturing, from urban planning to building information modeling, to provide our clients with extraordinary pieces of design and architecture that always surpass their initial expectations, constantly taking care of all processes from inception to inhabitation to make projects evolve within the desired budget and schedule.
We love what we do so you love where you live.
UNDERSTANDING SOCIAL, HISTORIC, PROGRAMMATIC & ENVIRONMENTAL PRECEDENTS
The first step to make in every design process is the deep understanding of the undertaken project. Before we make any design decisions we need to make sure that we aim towards the fulfillment of our clients needs and the society that will be affected by the implementation of the intervention to be done. We are extremely conscious of the implications of each decision that we make and, us such; we take special care in the preliminary study of the precedents that affect the project. This approach helps us focus with preciseness the direction in which imagination and creativity should be triggered to guarantee that architecture & design is activated as a means of overall progress and advancement.
CREATIVITY & IMAGINATION AS DRIVING FORCE OF DESIGN
Once we have a thorough understanding of the project, we believe that imagination and creativity are the core values that drive the advancement of our discipline. We challenge the limits of architecture and the building industry to achieve extraordinary results. As a consequence we operate within the border of the contemporary to push built form to unprecedented outcomes.
GET THINGS DONE!
We are not utopians. Even when we aim to work at the front edge of design, architecture and the building industry, we understand the complexity of the process of becoming. Anything that becomes true has to fulfill a complex set of requirements that draw the road towards fulfillment. Feasibility is the complementary core value of our studio. Once we set the objectives of the project through the action of creativity, we operate within a system of pragmatism to guarantee that things get done.
TECHNOLOGY EMPOWERS DESIGN CREATIVITY
We use technology to achieve feasibility. Computation & technology multiplies the capacity of our capabilities, allowing the advancement of disciplinary processes and the control of all design & build phases. From design drawings to manufacturing, from visualization & simulation to quantification and specification of materials, we use computational systems & technologies to implement, share and produce architecture & design.
We are experts in the forefront of design and manufacturing technology. With training in the Center for Bits and Atoms at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab and with over 10 years of experience in the use of BIM technology we are leaders in the application of technological advancement for creative purposes.
