elevations and facade systems

Cross sections are the parts we obtain cutting straight through the building, exposing both the interior and the constructive system.

master planning

A master plan is a document detailing the technical framework within which a long-term intervention is to be developed.

handover and as-built documentation

The handover and as-built documentation include drawing up plans and documents reflecting the project’s construction status, which may be used for maintenance operations or as a reference point for further interventions.

the philosophy of experimental design

Markets work in a simple manner: we design and build products that satisfy the demands of our society. In this age defined by the access to information, users are more aware of what they need and they want. Sustainability, flexibility and creation of value are common requests in any architectural brief these days. Experimentation is […]

brief development

The brief captures the requirements of the project that are solved by the design. It also provides information on the project’s development, location, and technical needs, as well as a plan accounting the necessary spaces and their mutual relation.

the process

Because of its humanistic and artistic character, there are no consistent procedures in Architecture. If we consider this art and science of designing a discipline for the modification of space we occupy, then the aims of Architecture are to bring together forms and uses that will be, like humans, unstable. We could say that everything […]
