Our architectural engagement is a social activity. Every project is implemented based on the professional knowledge and experience of a variety of people and is formed as a result of long-term and comprehensive discussions, debates and justifications. Although every project has an assigned architect-in-charge, we implement research-based design activities that are centered on the exchange of knowledge, experience and ideas. We consider our teamwork to be the backbone of a productive and inspirational result, in addition to being an opportunity to spend quality time with one another (a quality we love dearly).
