Using a holistic approach, we strive to create projects that celebrate the genius loci, the spirit of the place.
We seek to connect the buildings and their occupants more closely to nature. We incorporate elements like natural lighting and ventilation, landscape features and local building materials to create a more productive and healthy built environment that respects the integrity of the surroundings.
We specialize in designing buildings out of bamboo, one of the most sustainable and the fastest growing renewable building material in the world. We work with a network of bamboo construction specialists across the world who can assist in the realization of our bamboo projects.
Embedded in the landscape
We design buildings that seek a dialogue and harmonious balance with the natural surroundings.
Reinventing the vernacular
Vernacular architecture teaches us how we can inhabit different environments using locally available materials. It harnesses knowledge that took centuries to acquire. We incorporate this knowledge in contemporary designs.
Working with local crafts
Integrating local crafts and materials will both support and connect our projects to local communities and embed the buildings into the cultural context.
