Future-proof buildings stand the test of time, retain their value, financially as well as for society. It involves taking into account climate-change, the inevitable change of living and working patterns, changing cultural and social needs, as well as developing technology. To boost these strategies and designs, we combine smart new business models, sustainable renovation, and bespoke design to deliver real estate redevelopment ready for the future, for both new buildings as well as retrofits and redevelopments.
Using the Symbiosis in Development (SiD) framework, we find out the specific nature of each location and its need for future proofing. We transform our systemic insights into tangible visions supported by integrated sustainable strategies, with context sensitive design. Thanks to our integrated approach, we build and transform future-proof buildings that ensure a healthy and sustainable society for many generations to come.
Roadmaps for resilience
For larger city and regional projects, we develop transition roadmaps towards future proof regions. To make these, we use systems-thinking to identify needs of the place, long-term goals and vision, and back-cast to design strategies and action plans. We leverage real estate (re)development as a catalyst for creating vibrant communities, economies, ecosystems, and, of course, better buildings. This approach uplifts existing real estate, realizes financially solid investments, creates beautiful places for people, and sets examples for sustainable design.
Focus on communities
We facilitate a community-driven approach to transform public spaces and buildings into healthy, lively, welcoming places. In the process, we work closely with construction firms, developers, architects, planners, city governments, and businesses around the world, giving them the edge needed in a competitive marketplace.
