Adding goals, hope, efforts and experiences, with a broad sense of curiosity and research-based methodology. Incorporating specialists from diverse disciplines, inside and outside the office, finally adding knowledge to present solutions. Through this changeable organization, intensifying the permanent office, multiple collaborations are carried out in each situation, crafting the best global team in every project.

Our work is dedicated to the thoughtful conception of projects and careful crafting of buildings and spaces, exploring the intersection of contemporary design and building production. The Office has worked since its establishment at many different scales from diverse angles; completed works include various new and rehabilitation building works, collaborations with artists as technical support for the realization of constructive intervention and urban planning with a cultural or theoretical view.
