When we start a project we pay a lot of attention to the context. We explore the site and it’s surroundings in order to find out what existing qualities can be enhanced and which challenges the project needs to attend to. We have come to think that one cannot make a good project with a building that is badly situated. The site – however it appears – is an important resource. How one makes use of this resource is probably the most critical part of an architect’s work.
We make an effort to manifest the potential for architectural expression in every task and we try to produce buildings that have a distinct sculptural quality. When we get a formal idea we search for an adequate structural concept to develop. One could probably say that we are formed by the architectural tradition where construction itself has a narrative and poetic potential.
We embrace the width of architectural competence and practice. We recognize that architectural production contains elements of irrationality.
