Philosophy „Architecture for the habitable city“ Our architecture is a development of the historical fabric of the european city in terms of its theoretical context and aesthetic form. Architecture can only be sustainable if it takes its place within the matrix of society and the city, and when it can promote, improve and develop relationships that allow the city to serve its people wholistically and find an equilibrium with itself and ist wider environment. Housing developments play the key and decisive role in influencing the quality of life throughout all strata of society. Our architecture seeks to find a harmonious balance between the needs of the individual, community living and the entire urban society whilst simueltaneously acknowledging and responding to its urban and historical context. The high quality of our architecture is achieved on two fronts: -Technically; by durable materials, the commitment to contemporary techical servicing methods and construction technologies. -Functionally; through simple layouts allowing for a greater level of user interpretation and ability to create indiviual and unique spaces. Intermediate spaces such as gardens, terraces and balconies designed to offer visual protection encouraging occupiers to take on responsibility for them, while generous entrance halls and staircases allow relaxed and unforced contact between the occupiers.
