Blurred people mingling

Built around People

We believe that feelings combined with technical knowledge can create the best result, and that`s how we work.

 

We let everything inspire us, being open to the vibes we feel, the words we hear, and the details we see.

 

Then we do our research, and we store that information as well.

 

This mix makes every project unique!

We are young, we are strong, and we never give up!

We don`t care of creating a standard, or to brand our identity.

Our clients are our identity, and there is no one like the other.

There are many people and entities involved in a project that it`s impossible to know what will happen next.

Nothing to be stressed about!

Whatever will happen we are next to you to sort out.

WE SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Although things like the “Net Zero Carbon housing” and “Passive house” are heard daily, most of homeowners don`t actually know how to apply this principle to their project, and we are here to help!

***

First of all, what does sustainable design mean? There are few factors to consider:

---

Materials should be locally sourced to avoid the Co2 generated to transport those material

---

How the material is made, and how this impact the environment

---

How the house uses natural elements such sun and wind to low the energy consumption

---

Energy efficiency, and, if possible, renewable.

---

Comfort: a good ventilation, a warm home and a risk free design

***

Those are the “easy stuff” that you can, and should always apply to your design!
