    · believes that equally excellence of design, successful execution and expert management are the keys for good architecture
    · embraces urban planning, landscape, architecture and product design with the same philosophy
    · fruitfully combines professional practice with academic activity all over the world aims architecture to be a formalization of an ambition
    · uses pioneering design solution from a technological and ecological point of view
    · trusts in a cosmopolitan team, working in an international network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week


    Our designs and strategies always include recurring issues such as spatial context, built density, flexibility, mixed-use, phasing and transformability, which we regard as prerequisites for any sustainable approach. In order to develop tailor-made designs and strategies for a given project brief, we follow an integrative and research-based method, that reacts to the specific spatial, social, cultural, ecological and economical parameters of a given site.
    This integrative approach usually departs from a quantitative and qualitative analysis and visualization of various aspects of a site, such as urban space, infrastructure, transport, open space, population, densities, programme, nature, heritage, historic development, ecology, and climate. These parameters reveal the diverse qualities and potentials of the site. From there we evaluate various design options that result in a hybrid and complete design solution.

    Expert Network

    MiAS ARCHITECTS collaborates closely with clients and experts in temporary or permanent collaboration. In the course of time we developed a good relationship with experts from various fields. This interdisciplinarity enables us to generate a large knowledge of innovative design solutions already in an early stage, resulting in high degree of sustainability and economic efficiency, especially in later planning and construction phases.
    Thematic workshops with the client, the experts and MiAS ARCHITECTS are organized in parallel to the working process to achieve a higher degree of synergy. To avoid an isolated view, these reunions enable the analysis of project specific themes from various perspectives.
