However, we do not subscribe to conventional program-oriented specialization as we believe it tends to compartimentalize design practices and undermine architecture's synthetic role, effectively blocking the ability to generate new responses to new challenges. As a progressive and effective architectural practice we specialize in Advanced Architectural Design, having quality and innovation and as our main goals.
