Scope of work
The presentation of the architectural and interior design for the facility, the production of required construction documents, and the supervision of entire works until handover of the facility to the client.
An airplane moving through the sky could be the inspiration for the next store design. A lightning storm could inspire the next corporate office design. We designed a building after being moved by the patterns of a butterfly on a leaf. . . Our design philosophy is to be open to our surroundings and the design will find us.
