Shaping Intuition©

Our approach to architecture focuses on the well-being of the human being in his environment. Over the years, a guiding concept we call Shaping Intuition® has emerged naturally from our work. We all need a natural balance in our basic needs. In our projects, we give people the individual opportunity to harmonize the qualities of spaciousness, groundedness, expression and connection. We combine these with our cultural values which shape our projects: clarity, quality, personal and inspiration.

Shaping corresponds to culture, and to the creation of an environment that meets our intuitive needs. Our work is guided by the following cultural values:


Clarity is the beauty of simplicity. What we do must be easy to perceive, and be understood in a natural way. The elegance of simplicity is the sign of successful design.


Quality is value. We build what will last. We have high standards, and aim for timelessness.


Personal is the authentic character of a project. This emerges from context, setting or client identity. Personal is also unique expression of our customized service.


Inspiration sparks all of us. It touches everybody who is involved in the creation and use of the buildings, interiors and products we design. Inspiration is both the foundation of what we do, and the result we wish to achieve.

Intuition is the natural balance of the human being in nature—the needs every human being has in their surroundings that may be fulfilled by architecture. These basic needs are:


Spaciousness is the experience of freedom in a space; the ability to “breathe.” The presence of light and air animates a feeling of spaciousness.


Groundedness is the feeling of security in a space. Feeling at ease in a setting is the experience of peace and comfort.


Expression is what commands our attention and stimulates us. Like art, it is a trigger or surprise that stimulates feeling and insight, or enhances creativity. Expression is powerful.


Connection is the sequential relation between spaces, both interior and exterior. Connection may be physical and visual. Connection stimulates the interaction between spaces, between interior and exterior and among people. Connection creates an adventurous experience of one’s surroundings.
