We are a small studio with strong intentions to work on a method of architecture through the building language that we really intended. With the intention of designing the part of the building so that the builder in the local area can use the normal construction system but the expression part of the architecture is expressed by human hands. Using the studio's workshop area as an experimental area for mock-up work and wall mock-up to collect samples and material information.
