How We Build

By using various assessment tools and workshop formats,
every design is built through a co-creative process
together with the local community.​

We begin our design with local material, surroundings, and accessibility in mind. By working with local craftspeople, a local creativity is able to unfold in our designs. It is of the utmost importance to us that a construction raised for a given community is constructed by the locals and for the locals. The local economy will be stimulated, as well as pride and sense of responsibility towards the building.

In other words, we wish to forward our knowledge of long-term building processes to enable local communities to embark upon entrepreneurial activity. Thusly, they can move towards self-reliance as well as economic and social development.

Constructed with locals,
for locals.
