“Architecture is experienced primarily through the atmospheres it generates. What surrounds us in a work of architecture is not just a building, with its structural and spatial forms, but also the atmosphere of a total situation. Our work is based on the specific conditions of each project. We invest ourselves to understand them. The different features and challenges, the surroundings, the programs and the users themselves trigger the design process and form the architectural solution. We ought to be responsive to the circumstances of each project and reveal their true potentials. Identify the essential and eliminate the rest. Our goal is to create inspiring environments which have a positive effect on people’s lives. Future buildings must have a soul that inspires the users and invites them to live in.”
