Practice Ideology

Today after all experiences that we have, we are trying to find our way. And the material of this discovery and intuition is more than images related to experience and construction and touch of space. A valuable architecture is not only competition architecture or magazines or formal ones. So, we spend more time to choose the detail of our project instead of editing our images. Nowadays architecture gets a different meaning and it is not just focused on rising the benefit of rich people or helping those who have power to increase their territory and also creating a luxurious architecture by using well known material brands. To us contemporary architecture does not mean being in a competition to create a computerize form. Solving an easy problem that leads to increasing the quality of space is our priority. In another hand we do our best to have a positive effect in our city, try to broaden the public horizon, maintaining the historical context and building and also gardens and mountains.

Today our questions are updating and this cycle of questions and answers that we interface with may never ends. And maybe all the joy that we get from being an architect is located in the heart of these endless questions.
