You’ve got one in the bag, or you’re looking to snap one up, you’re excited about a potential new life with a creative genius.Besides designing the architectural programme, we are also happy to organise reservations for transport, accommodation and restaurants and can provide an all-round no-worries programme for you if requested.All our hand-picked guiding architects have a professional background in architecture and urbanism with first-hand knowledge of the design and building culture in their country.We conduct guided tours for experts and non-experts, hold lectures, publish specialised texts, and organise workshops and symposia.
