Values


This studio is a kind of home away from home for all of us. It's a place where we are open, creative, and free. Despite having deadlines and stressful moments, we value transparency, hard-work, and respect above all. We are self-aware and mindful. We are intense but we take moments to pause. To laugh! To reflect. To appreciate. Ultimately, to contribute to our environments and communities through great design. We have a strong moral compass firmly rooted in the belief that the things we do every day can make a tiny difference somewhere, to someone. And that a tiny drop can turn into a ripple which may turn into a wave. We take our responsibility as architects and designers seriously while making sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We work in a flexible way: sometimes in the studio, sometimes outside in the fresh air, or in the digital land of video meetings. Some work even happens in an infinitely long Whatsapp thread between us where we share somethings and nothings, brilliant ideas and viral puppy memes. We are obsessed with creativity, and always seek ways to cultivate more of it. Our work is not prescriptive or hourly, it is human-focused and performance-based: we imagine that we are all holding up a table, each of us holding a leg. Everyone on the team needs to do their part to make sure that the table is even.

We've collaborated with top international companies big and small, and completed projects in all corners of the world. Our clients are our enablers. They allow us to make dreams come true—ours and theirs. We seek to add value to their projects and keep their best interest at heart, always. We make their problems our problems and we never just complete a task "because they asked us to" if it will not serve them well. We explore, experiment, and stretch what is possible for their projects. Want to collaborate? Contact us.
