Basic elemnets like wind, terrain, sun, rain, landscape and clima is the fundamnet for all design. Each house (building) is designed only for one spot on the planet.The projects are devolped not as only practical planing, but also ass visuell research. The playfull, naiv optimistic and useless has just as big value in the design process as the logicla og practical. Essensial is the belife that a good house can change your life. Good architecture is a place that its never easy to leave.
