Philosophy

FUNCTION - ARCHITECTURE – ECOLOGY

Our specialities are designing senior citizen and healthcare buildings, new constructions and renovations. Important part of our specialities are interior design including special fitment design such as buildings first time supplying for example plants, lights, dishes, lamps, textiles etc. Nowadays we are doing product-development with different companies and doing concept-planning and also consulting senior citizens’ group home –planning.
We have familiarized ourselves with building environmental overall design. We design gardens and yards as well. We co-operate with a horticulturist and a landscape architect to make decisions about the plant selections and other green design.
We design our projects always with intense co-operation with the customer and users. Our goal is to make our designs functional, comfortable with distinctive architectural features.
