What’s the point of this website?
We think that architecture is more than just fancy photographs of buildings and seductive impressions of interiors. Don’t get us wrong, we do love to make beautiful things. There’s nothing wrong with that, and we certainly are proud of what we do. We just don’t see much value in discussing architecture in that la-di-da kind of way. Architecture isn’t just a superficial discipline: looks alone do not a design make. There are bigger fish to fry. The building industry is currently using a tremendous amount of resources. We extract cement and other minerals from the earth, process them using a tremendous amount of energy, and transport products throughout the world only to find out they do not contribute to healthier spaces. The appeal of a modern building may well hide the harm done to the environment elsewhere. Brick facades and white plastered rooms is what we see, mine pits and pollution is what others get. To us, that doesn’t feel quite right. With our work we’d like to make a positive contribution to the world. And so we decided to ask All Sizes to design us a website that requires little energy and focuses on what matters most to us: to ask the difficult questions and answer to them with optimistic solutions. All in the hopes you may understand our work better and to join us on this adventure. Photographs and images have been dithered so that the website touches the earth lightly, just like we do with our designs. You can see our Website Carbon tag on the bottom left of the website. We’ll share the books we read, link to the sources we come across, and give credit to the people that inspire us. Hopefully, you'll find it useful. And with a bit of luck, you’ll fall in love with our design approach as well.

If you do want to see the fruits of our labor, you can download our “portfolio” and “media kit” under the tab “about/contact” on the top right. We’ve added shortcuts below. Or have a look at our Instagram page where we like to post about our work more informally. Our website will be updated as we experiment, gather knowledge, and make new recipes.
