We believe paying attention to the fundamental elements, i.e. light, materials, details, scales, elements of space, and the making of atmosphere. Our understanding towards architecture has been reshaped day by day, and new ideas emerge when we have learnt more from travel, design and daily life. We firmly believe that the new ideas will finally guide us through towards better designs although they are still in the early stage.
We realize that most of the knowledge of architectural design were imported, and we also realize that we have to base our design on what we have in China. This fact suggests that our design has the root in domestic culture but it will reach further as it grows.
Our belief also lies on one of the famous remarks from Walter Gropius, that to work together can produce more than what we can reach individually. It is exactly what we aim to achieve in atelier Deshaus.
