Only the essential. We’ve tried to bring this attitude to all of our projects – this particular idea of luxury in simplicity, of “less is more”, which can also be a financial approach: “cheap is more.” Today, our goal is still to use economy in order to do the maximum – to increase freedom and living possibilities for families that don’t necessarily have much money. We are interested in light, air and working with what exists to create different conditions, and new conditions, for living.
