& planning

Ideas come from a change of perspective and a new way of looking at the challenges of tomorrow

Our work transcends the boundaries of urban planning, landscape and urban development. Together with our clients we develop holistic solutions for cities and regions and focus on just one goal: to improve people's daily lives.



Small-scale mixed-use areas are the foundation of every 15-minute city. We dedicate our work to mixed-use solutions for vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods.


Vibrant places with a strong identity are authentic. We work together with our clients to evolve their history into a bright future.

Urban Climate

We are deeply committed to urban climate. Our solutions are a contribution towards a better climate resilience and greener future.

Future Cities

The only constant in our cities is the ongoing process of change. Together we decide which direction it will take.
