We believe that architecture is the means that binds us to reality. Architecture is the manifestation of the physical world with the interaction of man. The anchor in the world of the fleeting image. The practice's aim is to develop an architecture based on the assumption of these characteristics of the built environment and the embrace of the material and concrete as a reflection of the timeless.
