Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where company/ individuals have been involved?

Most of our current projects are mid-scale residential buildings, but our favorite project is definitely a family house for our friend located in the small village near our hometown.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Obviously, architecture means a lot to us. It is not just a job to us because we like to think, create, design,and talk about architecture even if we are not in the office and have a free time. It is a lifestyle.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

We take part in architecture vision competitions because it brings new challenges, fresh ideas, conceptual thinking and mainly great fun for us.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

Very interesting and unusual topics force you to think and design differently than you normally do. In the worst case scenario architecture vision competitions will broaden your horizons and you will have a lot of fun.
