Adaptive Transformation

Now, more than ever, the environmental and social effects of construction demand our attention. The transformation and reuse of existing neighborhoods, campuses, waterfronts, industrial sites, and buildings are an essential part of our commitment to reducing environmental impact.

Artist Collaborations

Architecture can be a canvas or a sculptural mould for art. It can also be fully submerged into each other, making it hard to tell where the architecture ends and the art piece begins.

Throughout history, the artist and the architect were often the same person. In our projects, we approach our artist collaborations as an on-going dialogue. In mutual respect we give way for the artistic intervention as layers that seep into the walls, floors, or ceilings. Or stand out with a cry or message that grasps the attention from visitors and users of the building. Together we aim to move people, striking a note and setting a mood that makes it a place to remember.


Educational institutions provide environments for reflection, innovation, and creativity, centered around a shared identity. Great institutions do more – they are cross-disciplinary platforms that empower their learners to chart their own paths. Given the nature of the work, we too employ our creativity fearlessly as we develop new paths specific to the challenge at hand. We are unbiased and comprehensive in our design approach; yet direct and distinct in our architectural response.

Hybrid mixed-use

We approach every one of our projects with a hybrid mindset. Whether it’s the more traditional combination of functions or the blurring of the boundary between a building and the public realm, it is our philosophy that every project serves more than one purpose. And each unique development has more than a singular meaning to the people who use it. 

We experiment with the functions of a hybrid building, composing them in new, innovative, often surprising ways. Instead of taking the components and assembling them in the most obvious way, we strive to create a whole that is larger than the sum of its parts.


Over the past decade, we have witnessed an unprecedented renaissance in libraries. The rapidly changing social, technological, and demographic trends have caused libraries to evolve dramatically.

Libraries are the cultural hubs of our time - places of learning through contemplation, engaging with different media, creating, and connecting with others. In a world that occasionally feels fragmented, libraries provide a unique framework where we can come together around shared interests and the joy of learning.


For more than two decades, we have integrated wood in the design of cultural, civic, commercial, and educational buildings the world over. Our approach to timber construction is rooted in a culture of sustainability and smart business – we believe that timber exists where these two notions intersect.

Urban Planning

Urban planning stands at the centre of dealing with the climate crisis that is inevitably upon us. As we see mass urbanisation as global mega trend, dealing with aspects like high densification, transportation, food production, adaptive transformation, housing scarcity, biodiversity loss, and rapid shifts - climatic, political, as economical, planning has become the battlefield from where we as designers can drive the biggest change. Collaboration is at the heart of our work as we strive to create thriving communities that benefit all living systems.
