The scale and scope of our projects are diverse. From housing to architecture renovation, from public and private facilities to public space, from lightning to ceramic tiles design. All our works have been developed through the exploration of similar methodological frameworks and creative process, which challenge multiple design investigations to seek for new solutions and to produce spatial and architectural outcomes as result of multidisciplinary synthesis.
