Finding solutions for the "Urban Exodus"


A concept that we created after seeing the historical phases of "Rural Exodus", when populations fled from the country side to the cities in the time of the "Industrial Revolution". Now the one of the "Information Revolution", which makes it possible for populations to return to the less urbanised areas.

Our inspiration ranges from the developing ferns, alike butterflies coming out of their chrysalides, and the spherical conception of the universe of indigenous people, to high tech efficient intelligent eco-houses. We find alternatives for housing, making every construction unique. We use natural geometry, organic design and the Golden Mean proportion to integrate irregularities of the land, for the creation of a habitat of well being that grows naturally, using noble materials.

Also, we intend to replace the human being at the center of the architectural preoccupations, demystifying vernacular building technics and ancient knowledge, creating inhabited temples for human development. The organization was founded due to the meeting of two lovers of “bel oeuvre”, their friendship and complementarity leaded to a nine years work relationship.
