Design Approach

We believe that artistic statements and technological innovation are inherent to architectural artworks. To us, architecture is not only a professional discipline with a functional entity; it is a field of cultural expression.

It is fascinating to us to be in the process of designing and researching and experience how architecture can be a universal language and commonly shared linking peoples from different backgrounds and cultures.

Nature is an important source of inspiration to us; as passionate sailors and hikers we are humbled the beauty and forces it can unfold. Living by the Mediterranean might reason our affinity to horizontal lines, open plans that are enclosed by vessels and wings. We are also involved in yacht design and have worked on research projects bridging between different disciplines. These shapes are tools for conveying conceptual statements for functions. We believe that the quality of our buildings is determined by the performance linking spatial experiences with functional requirements.

In our design approach we initially try to understand parameters that formulate the assignment. We intuitively resist conventional solutions and try to find a lateral approach. The initial formulation of concepts starts very playfully but at one point we take a decision pushing the design it to a sharp statement. But here the process doesn’t end; rigorously implementation is as important as the idea itself. Studying and practicing in high –tech regions Germany and Austria also reasons our relation technological innovation and high end craftsmanship. We had the opportunity to work with the finest engineers at the highest level of technological innovation.

Just like music is composed of many voices as melody, rhythm, chords etc; we also aim to create artworks on multiple layers as concept, space, material, function, expression, structure etc. We would be most delighted if our designs could find a similar perception and connection such as music, enhancing emotions and desires yet being highly functional.
