Environmentally oriented planning that respects nature, made with passion and the whole heart

Our planning is based on holistic thinking, where the starting point is the client’s needs and the characteristics of the location. We want to create humane, beautiful and vibrant cities and towns where nature and the built environment interact with each other.

For us, the things that are important in planning are an environmental focus, sustainable development, functionality and consideration of the client’s goals.

How our process unfolds

Each project is unique, which is why the more detailed phases and schedule of the process are always determined on a project-by-project basis.

We are closely involved and support the client all the way from going over the starting points of the project to its completion.

We get to know the area and determine how the characteristics of the area should be taken into account in the plan.


Together with the client, we create an idea and concept for the area, which guides our planning work throughout the project.

Reference planning

We plan the cityscape and functional structure of the area or block and create plans and visualisations that meet the requirements of the project. During this phase, the cooperation with the client is close.

Plan creation

On the basis of the reference plan, we create a plan map and other plan materials. We support the client in the planning process as well as in negotiations with the city or town and the authorities.

Building design

From planning, we can smoothly move on to designing buildings, in which case the information accumulated during the planning work is transferred to the construction project.

Shall we get started?

Would you like to create a space that stands out? Are you seeking an environment that fascinates and delights?

We will help you turn your vision into reality.
