Formulating strong concepts based on deep insight regarding people way of life, habits, specific cultural requirements and customs as also by coherently and innovatively solving functional and site requirements are a key component of his work. Energy efficiency and alternative systems for applying renewables in buildings is directly related to the approach above mentioned; being these technologies site and project-specific; their application (single or combined) is always analyzed according to their true feasibility.
