The exact determination of costs and the adherence to the budget are basic requirements of the job. For each design, the place and its history, the surrounding area, the climate and the topography are the main factors for arriving at a complex solution. The goal is always to manage unique buildings and city areas in which people have a sense of well-being, new possibilities can be discovered and a connection between past and present future can be developed.
