Our view on Architecture
Organic architecture is a form of architecture inspired by nature and based on beauty and harmony. It teaches us the design and layout of a building influences our wellbeing and happiness. The use of organic architectural principles can avoid negative influences and stimulate the positive. Harmony between the natural and newly created forms is important. In organic architecture people and their wellbeing are the starting point of the design. An optimal fusion of area, shape, material, color and technique results in good health and higher economic productivity. The buildings and its used materials, shapes and colors can be considered as a shell, like humans wearing a garment as a protection.
Organic architecture highly respects the environment and contributes in the most natural way, to possible “solutions” for environmental engineering, where sustainability and low CO2 emission are leading.
Architecture cannot be disconnected from its surroundings. It is therefore from the utmost importance to, before starting on the actual urban design, study the existing landscape, urban and regional planning.
Finding and developing existing qualities in landscape and architecture to create a new urban interpretation, both from history as to present and future, has a prominent place in our designs. In addition, the final shaping of the landscape design can find a new a new basis in the geomorphologic features of the site. Soil, relief and hydrological properties can provide specific principles for the final design of plant species and vegetation types.
Town planning becomes an experience…
By using and extending the qualities of the landscape and by playing town and spatial planning like musical instruments of design, you can create conditions for ‘good’ architecture. When architecture makes use of visual beacons to stimulate the human imagination, it encourages visual associations and makes them apparent. As such a meaning will be given to architecture that enables everybody to relate his or her images to. These images will not only please the eye, but also feelings, emotions and awareness.
Architecture becomes an experience again…
As with all living creatures, the interior is inseparably linked to the exterior. As such, the interior is part of the exterior and vice versa. One reveals the story of the other. It is possible to envisage the interior as an ecological garden, where the interior and its functions are constantly being adapted to a change in visions, desires and demands, matter which shape they take. Moreover, materials and colors are composed in such a way that symphonic shapes arise for the human scale and rhythm.
