design intent, philosophy
topics such as the reception of space through movement and the integration of landscape serve as models for conceptual ideas - and need for continuous learning in the projects. the development of "integrated architecture" is the goal of our work - which means for us interdisciplinary thinking in several scales and the continuation of the mutual influence of landscape (city) and buildings up to the furniture.
another aspect of our work is the process of developing architecture as a team, together with project partners, experts and the client. this approach is reflected in the name “synn architekten” which is derived from the greek prefix “syn” meaning “with, acting together, united ….”
in different partnerships with colleagues we can respond to complex challenges in a flexible way, supporting each other, especially in larger projects opening up the discussion to generate new perspectives and approaches to architecture.
