Through our Beijing office, we have been providing architectural design, interior design and urban planning consultancy services in China since 2018.

We have worked for private clients, corporations and local governments developing residential, commercial and public buildings.
Our urban planning expertise is complemented by the development of research programmes and cultural activities related to urban planning in conjunction with the country’s leading universities.

We understand the need to immerse deeply in a natural environment while being protected at your shelter and in fact, we have rediscovered the beauty and functionality of this typology in numerous projects.
