By origin, we are an architecture studio, but we do much more than just designing buildings. Architecture in Hong Kong and Architecture in Switzerland are both outstanding, but completely different in their condition of existence. As an architectural designer in Hong Kong & Switzerland, we work out of two highly sophisticated environments with easy access to outstanding experts who can support the complex development process of our projects.
We understand our work as architectural designers as part of cultural practices that aim to lift the quality of our life and environment. The need for sustainable architecture and urban transformation with its potential to raise our quality of life has been at the center of our attention since the very beginning of our architecture firm. Sustainability is at the core of everything we undertake and we develop bespoke strategies that support our holistic perspective.. To build sustainably is challenging us to design integrative. Our specific design approach allows us to develop new strategies that have a positive impact on the future of the environment. Every project begins with a comprehensive analysis, leading to solutions that are tailor-made to both, the context and the users. As architectural designer, we believe that it is essential to reflect on the built environment as a totality and to pursue an integrated approach to responsible design.
... for existing communities who seek to upgrade the spaces they share or for owners of new developments, aiming to provide an outstanding quality of the environments for their future users.

As an architecture company in Hong Kong and Switzerland, we base on two studios and their related networks. The Design in our architecture studio in Hong Kong & Switzerland is typically developed by a team that keeps connected with the project from the very first moment to its completion. Each project we undertake is unique and we aim to generate bespoke solutions that meet the needs or its connected users and stakeholders.
Our four main steps in the design service process ensure that the right things get done the right time by the right people in order to integrate the complex requirements to deliver advanced integrated interiors, architecture and urban design solutions:
We validate the project brief and challenge it through research and observations of the existing context in order to:
1— Look inside the brief to understand the case, context, and the processes where the new space or service will be deployed, and
2— Look outside to the ecosystem, market environment, and culture.
We use architectural engineering approaches to find and invent new spatial patterns and frameworks for the future urban context or services. We communicate design directions and alternatives in a concise and visual manner as a well-experienced architectural designer.
Results: working models, content frameworks, draft guidelines, mappings, design solution concepts, etc.
Based on the two previous phases, we design and deliver the final solutions. The output is depending on the specific project profile. It describes the guideline for the selected solution and provides the in-depth information needed for implementation.
Results: design guidelines, detail designs, product or service specifications, movies, presentations, plans, etc.
With our architecture firm in Hong Kong & Switzerland we participate in or overtake the lead in the construction phase of the project. We ensure that the work of the architectural designer and urban development is implemented as intended: functional, beautiful, and economically successful.
Results: implementation guideline and quality management support etc.
As architectural designer in Hong Kong & Switzerland, we merge two service cultures. The autonomy and consistency of a Swiss Architectural practice and the openness of an Architect in Hong Kong, serving as a cultural connector and mediator.
As a sustainable architecture oriented studio we are looking for like-minded souls to kickstart initiatives to transform our societies towards a sustainable lifestyle. We are interested to jointly initiate ambitious projects that pursue a specific agenda in a wide range of possible constellations. Possible projects range from business concepts to community development and cooperative housing initiatives. As an architecture firm, we are ready to join teams that share a common vision or plan.
In recent years we have collaborated to organize Pecha Kucha Nights in Hong Kong, to support the development of a new concept of active buildings to China, and joined a partnership for the development of a community in the south pacific. We are able to activate our strong network in Higher Education and of private companies to support such plans and help to make them happen.
As an Architect, based in Hong Kong and Switzerland we have collaborated with a wide range of clients in Europe and Asia:
With private homeowners we built new individual houses, transformed/renovated existing ones, or upgraded their apartments.
With Business Owners we collaborated intensively to support the implementation of new business strategies, to upgrade their retail venues or to support a startup enterprise with a related interior design concept.
With Real Estate Developers we created large scale urban design proposals for the startup of successful development strategies and their following implementation.
With a wide range of Government Agencies, we collaborated to develop holistic urban transformation and development concepts and master plans by our sustainable architecture studio.
With NGO’s we shared our interest to offer custom made education programs in the field of green building design and sustainable urban development.
