Art is almost always the result of a constraint: but it is possible to turn this into a resource for design, making it a source of inspiration.

Working with constraints can make us think outside the box, experiment and get more creative. In the urban environment there are often limitations to a project, forcing us to rethink the standard rules and norms, creating a new approach to design. The result is new spaces that create an element of surprise, changing our perspective of a place. In all our work, we see working with constraints and taking risks as an opportunity to invent a new approach.
