In the world of constant (over-)stimulation and everchanging fashions, we want to make calm and simple projects – architecture that will last.
Vitruvius, in his famous 'The Ten Books on Architecture', defined qualities that good buildings should possess: durability, functionality and beauty ('firmitas, utilitas, venustas') - we believe those values are as important today as they were two thousand years ago. We avoid using rhetoric or following recent trends, rather seeking for clear, simple and straightforward solutions. We don't do it out of modesty or restraint - on the contrary, we believe that simple and honest building is stronger than the one that shouts and desperately seeks for attention.
