We are a multi-disciplinary architecture and design practice that develops projects across different scales. Our architectural portfolio boasts a variety of works that include interiors, residential buildings, commercial projects, and industrial facilities. In our commitment to create unique and site-specific interventions, each project is crafted to measure. Our design process involves engaging in material experimentations and experiential research to create unique products that revisit the user’s relationship to space.

Extraground, the lab section of the practice, is an explorative space for research and investigation on the built environment and its representations through its urban fabric and cultural production. There, we explore an alternate approach to the practice of architecture and urban planning through research, installations, workshops and archiving practices; devising a symbiotic relationship between commissioned projects and self-initiated research.


Placing the user at the heart of our work, we are committed to the practice of conscious design, striving for urban equity throughout all phases. We endeavor to bridge between analog and digital practices, traditional and contemporary building technology. We utilize, re-arrange and integrate functional modules and systems to define new architectural types unique to each project, all the while responding to the client’s need and programmatic requirements.
