At Main Office, we work with the architect’s entire field of work, architecture, urban planning, interior design, concept development and product design. Main Office work is characterized by high quality and customer focus. We work with all types of projects from idea sketches to finished documents.
Together with the customer, we work towards a common goal that is the foundation for the entire project’s implementation. Our way of working enables shorter lead times and streamlines the customer’s projects. It starts with a customer request, an idea, to complete the task of drawing the building into the smallest detail.
By identifying the opportunities and challenges early in the project, we create added value for the customer’s business. Involving the customer in the design process in a timely manner creates the conditions for better quality of the projects. Our knowledge extends throughout the construction process and we also act as consultants for our clients.
We strongly believe in the design process as a tool, where every project’s prerequisites become opportunities instead of limitations. Rather, with the help of a structured design process, these constraints could have been used as key elements for developing innovative projects that fit all types of budgets, locations, topographies, building rules and other conditions.
Main Office philosophy is based on a belief that the architectural form requires its time and place. In our experience, the importance of setting aside time to involve the customer in the design process has proved essential in order to achieve maximum quality. Every single project is special and a challenge, which is why we prefer to think beyond standard solutions, to redefine new typologies. We want to create strong, innovative and inspiring architecture that contributes to a sustainable and social society.
