We imagine

We are dedicated to creating spaces that not only serve functional needs but also foster a sense of community, minimise environmental impact, and ensure economic viability. Through this holistic approach our projects become vibrant contributors to society.

Our approach

  • By disruptively questioning everything – even our clients and ourselves – our creative team constantly challenges the status quo. Where there are opportunities to create positive change, existing frameworks won’t hold us back.
  • Our entrepreneurial mindset is always ahead of the market competition, thinking beyond business cases in order to solve problems on behalf of others – and ourselves.
  • Open minds create broad perspectives. Driven by imagination, our multidisciplinary team always seeks opportunities in the interspace between markets.

We develop

We specialise in creating environments that nurture collaboration among stakeholders and local communities, contributing to the sharing economy through our innovative ‘blended use’ concept. Embracing serendipity and doism, the value arising from our interventions goes beyond mere economic gains. This synergy is crucial in maintaining a harmonious and balanced ecosystem.

Our approach

  • Development is done by design. Our developers and designers work closely together in one open studio, creating swift and tangible results.
  • Value is added through our deep knowledge of various asset classes and a relentless drive to cross-pollinate functionalities in blended markets.
  • Our aim is to generate emotional capital. For change is only possible when people fall in love with solutions for today’s – and tomorrow’s – challenges.

We design

Through our commitment to create value beyond mere economic profit, we recognise that sustained success is intricately linked to the positive contributions made to society and aligns with the evolving expectations of conscientious consumers and stakeholders. We create meaningful spaces and moments through our change organism: imagine, develop, design, build, and activate.

Our approach

  • Rather than design, clients want us to create impact. Our aim is to balance social, environmental and economic return.
  • Let’s optimise the use of space by blending functionalities and by creating social cohesion between stakeholders. This blended approach operates in the interspace between markets and shapes the sharing economy.
  • Thinking ahead about how to collaboratively design, build and activate spaces, our approach is holistic. Our projects span from from ideation to realisation, and activation – in any scale, from chair to city.

We build

Leaping beyond conventional boundaries, from design to operations, we transform spaces into meaningful environments to promote wellbeing for people and planet. Be it hotels or offices, hospitals or care facilities, our holistic approach and sustainable practices cultivate harmony, revitalise communities, and nurture the environment for a thriving and balanced future.

Our approach

  • Focusing on quality instead of profit maximisation, our design team is an integrated part of our construction team. Together they constantly protect the quality of materials and artistry, both in the engineering and executional phases.
  • Building with the creative and agile mindset of designers in one single team instead of a traditional chain of services is what makes us a true full-service Design & Build company. Throughout the entire process, we bear joint responsibility for the final result.
  • Doing heavy work with a light-hearted attitude, our projects should be fun for everyone involved.

Circularity is a cornerstone of our projects, and we actively strive to collaborate with local partners to significantly reduce environmental impact. In line with government objectives like the ESG standards, this enables us to achieve thoughtful and responsible architecture.

Our approach

  • A close collaboration between teams of various backgrounds and disciplines is what creates extensive knowledge, agility and truly unique synergy – from ideation to realisation, and activation.
  • By activating spaces from a blended-use perspective, various people and functionalities are brought together in the same space during day and night, creating meaningful spaces and moments.
  • Each project starts with research and an exchange of learnings. Championing autonomy and regarding resourcefulness as an art, we invite others for collaborations and trust the doers. While always open for reflection on our work process, we strive to be undeniable.
