Architecture and sustainability are inseparable in an integrated design. Architecture presents a unique challenge in the field of sustainability. Sustainable construction is defined as “the creation and responsible management of a healthy built environment based on resource efficient and ecological principles”. Sustainably- designed buildings intend to lessen their impact on our environment through energy and resource efficiency. In this way, we will achieve an environmentally-friendly architecture avoiding the use of artificial energy.
Our projects range from single-family residences, to IT Parks, Hotels and Multi- Housing developments in various parts of the world.
