site analysis

Site analysis is the study of the plot’s specific conditions in geographical, historical and legal terms.


The old ambition of producing a really moving architecture succeeds when it responds to the site and brief requirements. The proposal for the thematic pavilion of the 2012 Yeosu international exhibition has a focus for the people to experience and understand this liquid element through the specific place in which it is located: the ocean.

using authentic eco-friendly building products

Advanced technologies in materials engineering continuously pave the way for the manufacturing of synthetic materials. Building typologies which once exhibited natural and organic surface materials are now replaced with composites, plastics and resins. However, specifications on the form, particularly on the façade itself, channel directly into its users the perception, character and function of the […]

sustainable natural ventilation

Sustainable design is not complete without natural ventilation. Rather than using mechanical means, fresh air is supplied into the indoor spaces and removed through a differential in temperature and wind forces. Natural ventilation aids in the cooling loads of the building’s total energy use and has an overall impact on the return on investment.

landscape design

Landscape design refers to the transformation of open spaces and natural environments ‒ such as gardens, terrains or streams of water ‒ to integrate them with the architecture, their contexts, and other changing elements of the setting.
