While our design strategies adapt to each project, we consistently approach climate, materials, ways of living and sense of place from the following positions:

While our design strategies adapt to each project, we consistently approach climate, materials, ways of living and sense of place from the following positions:



We consider environmental factors extremely seriously as they are key to creating efficient and comfortable spaces. We do this by concentrating first on fundamental factors such as orientation, shading, sunlight, and insulation before incorporating modern technologies. At the same time we take particularly interest in the relationship between inside and outside spaces, optimizing views while protecting the interior against the extremes of climate.


We also use the natural and local materials, as these weather well, are sustainable and connect buildings to the local context. When used carefully and imaginably, these can also produce entirely modern effects.

new ways of living

New ways of living require new kinds of houses. Daylight, climate control, installations and spatial configuration, all require a modern approach – but this also creates greater opportunities to reinterpret the building types of the past in which traditional buildings can be reorganised to allow a totally new experience.

sense of place

This concept embodies both the physical environment and the social and cultural context. We believe architecture should bring out the positive qualities of place to tie them into new projects, creating new connections to where they stand and the context in which they will be used.
