Through minimal gestures, we reaffirm the importance of our design philosophy, which is multidisciplinary and open minded. We believe that there is no division of roles and that the architect and designer must be able to move with confidence as much between different scales of a project as between different disciplines. From the concept to construction and up to the detail of a door handle, we believe that the borders established between different disciplines are dynamic, interactive, and susceptible to osmotic processes. Satellite disciplinary areas, like illustration, art, cinema and design, can reveal many points of contact with the Architecture. The condition for certain contaminations to be activated is that the borders of these disciplines are more like membranes than walls. Only through this continuous osmotic process is it possible to create unique design, where every element is in balance, is properly orchestrated and is part of a timeless language.
