ENGINEERING IS
NOT ENOUGH

we deliver creativity with punctuality

PERFORMANCE-BASED DESIGN

We adopt and manage cutting-edge tools and methodologies for designing highly responsive architectural components and systems.
Performance-based design represents a design process where building performance becomes the guiding factor in the design process.
This implies defining performative criteria for different kinds of analysis which integrated with

algorithm-driven design represent crucial factor in decision making process.
Furthermore, long-term comprehensive iteration for developing better solutions can be optimized with parametric framework in real-time, producing solutions with higher performance, fewer materials and less negative impact on the environment and on the whole life cycle.

SIMPLIFYING
THE COMPLEXITY

we like tackling challenging missions

BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING

Our buildings and masterplans are characterised by an apparent simplicity that disguises the complexities of challenging briefs, historic fabric, or urban constraints. We relish the challenge of these projects and the process of distilling a solution that exceeds clients' expectations and provides an efficient and legible solution.
We believe our ability to distil the essence of a project from complex parameters is the key to our design.

Building information modeling is just one of the tools that we use to control vast projects with a high degree of complexity.
Any kind of modifications that are necessary for improving concept and efficiency can be implemented in a much easier and quicker way if the process is history-based and every step in the design process is connected to and dependent on the others.

GOOD DESIGN IS
AN EXTRA VALUE

quality is always a good investment

VALUE ADDED STRATEGIES AND COSTS CONTROL

Our design process starts with a detailed identification of the business case, a risk assessment and the analysis of strengths and constraints.
Once the objectives and the guidelines of the project have been defined, costs are monitored daily in house with the development of the project.
This allows us to direct the budget towards technological solutions suitable for the client, avoiding waste
 

of economical and environmental resources.
We understand the value of space and consider every square metre to be precious. Each project is carefully tested to ensure that a design is both generous and cost-effective in the correct places. The solution is tailored to a detailed understanding of requirements, but with sufficient flexibility to address future needs and changes.

YES WE ARE GREEN

we provide sustainable and cost-effective design

SUSTAINABILITY AND COST-EFFECTIVE DESIGN

It is finally becoming acknowledged that construction and planning must play a key role in the reduction of our collective carbon footprint, minimising the environmental impact and establishing more sustainable methods of living.
We are adamant that this must be achieved through a holistic and pragmatic approach by the whole design team.
All projects embrace low-energy
 

design, regardless of type and dimensions, from high density residential developments to the refurbishment and extension of listed public museums.
From the concept to the design development, our work takes into account a number of related issues: life cycle costing, possible damage to eco-systems, scarcity of resources, carbon emissions, energy use, waste, recycling, lifespan and maintenance.
