Our practice is organized as a lab fostering joint ventures with partners locally and worldwide. It enables us to serve our clients in a specific way by incorporating distinct ideas and thoughts into every project.

Collaborations with a wide variety of practices liberates us from aesthetic stereotypes and dogmas, stimulating unpredictable acts and encounters in a context simultaneously local and global.

Rapidly changing relations between an individual and the community are subject of research and exploration on distinct scales. We are strongly motivated in making places for this generation of unlimited diversity, connectedness and relationships. 

The practice is guided by architect engineer Joris De Baes, who gained extensive international experience working for the world renowned Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Our work has been subject to various publications, exhibitions and prizes.



We are currently looking for talented people to join our team.
