We are a practice that embraces and extends the power of technology across all of our work. We’re highly adept at Building Information Modelling (BIM) and are passionate advocates of what we believe could bring an additional input to the market. Our aim is to guarantee that the project is viable trough a direct, explicit and transparent way of communication that could enable confidence from the main Client in order to invest on any potential development.
Marco Miroto (Partner)
We have integrated Virtual Reality into our design process, allowing our clients to be immersed in the building, experiencing what it is like to walk through every space. This level of visualisation is far beyond what can be achieved through looking at drawings and our clients find they can make quicker and better informed decisions.
We are serious advocates of designing in 3D dimensional space, either in a virtual reality environment or in a phisical space by creating scale models of all our projects that will pass during all design stages – From Concept to Completion. This enables our team of architects and engineers to bring to the project an accute design strategy in order to meet the requested aesthetic/architectural/sculptural result.
We like to understand the design process of each project as a deep journey that starts and ends on site. The site provides us plenty of information for a starting point, but is also there, during the construction stage, that ideas are turned into reality. In-between, there are plenty of testing periods using different techniques, from hand sketch to 2D drawings, from 3D models to physical models.
