We are a group of friends from Poland that met at the University. All of us have interesting experiences in job workplaces, taking part in international internships, participating in competitions and many others. Architecture has already led us to a lot of different places such as the United States, Denmark and Italy. We always test ourselves in projects that require a wide spectrum of thinking about design. The context as a priority is probably the thing that inspires us the most.
As a young team we deal with a whole range of projects in different scales. Every new theme or topic excites us more. We have already worked on urban planning, skyscrapers, hospitals, office buildings, schools, residential housing, mixed-use buildings, renovations, furniture, products and all kinds of others. Always excited by new stuff.
In our own minds, architecture is a natural extension of human activity. It keeps a balance between environment and growing society. We receive an impression of an architect being a craftsman. In our minds, the idea of elaborated space is more attractive than making just a loud impact. The architecture always means a lot to us because we care about it even more.
We always participate in this kind of competitions to test and improve our abilities. In this case, unique visions are always a final product of long talks, tons of sketches, different attempts and sometimes failures. There is probably more knowledge to be gained out of conclusions when feedback surprises us then when everything is correct.
Well, doing it for the benefits gives you only quick joy. Doing it for fun always brings you fulfillment. Do not hesitate but choose wisely
