Spatial puzzling is our passion: making smart designs that can take a punch. We mean by this that the plan does not include ageing quickly, and can adapt to future changes. Spatial innovations make it possible to use the building in different ways, now and in the future.

Sustainability is a crucial figure nowadays. For that, we are mostly interested in projects where sustainability, and circularity are important. The use of wood is preferably over concrete for example.
