Today there are more questions than answers, more choice than decisions and more opportunities than hours per day. That is why the greatest skill is to leave out the unimportant and give more room to the essential: Space, reduced to the essentials in order to be able to perceive maximum room quality with all the senses. People and emotions take centre stage in order to create a framework for good communication out of the very nature of the place.  An interplay of nature, light and space is one of our primary design parameters. The right balance of order, openness and safety creates a clear harmony of beauty, which results from the question of what a person essentially needs. With reduction, lightness, transparency and flowing floor plans, our architecture creates a tangible scale and connects buildings with people in order to create places of well-being for rest and retreat.
