The condition for our design work is the will to design. The aim is to find an adequate expression for each building task that goes beyond what is necessary. The designs are developed from the cultural context and reflect the specific characteristics of the building task and the respective location. The buildings designed in this way are durable - functional reference and aging capability are basic prerequisites for an economical and ecological use of existing resources. Accordingly, the right choice of material, detailing and craftsmanship are of great importance.
