who we are - what we do
The character or sense of place is formed just like the terroir creates the character of fine wines ……The climate, the sun, the rain, the wind, the geography, geology and topography and most importantly the history and culture of the place and its people make the genius loci of our towns and cities.
Our design process begins with understanding and harnessing the character of place to create harmonious and inebriating places.
Understanding and working with the climate and culture of a given place leads to making sustainable designs that are resilient both environmentally and socially.
We work with materials and techniques that are local to the project's context to support the local economy reduce the carbon footprint of construction and help to create a circular economy.
