“Architecture is without limits … starting with the initial design up until the development of the smallest details of an object. Throughout this process, one single objective is kept in mind: eliminate superfluous elements to retain only what is essential.

Latter philosophy has been applied while designing OPUS. A 60 mm cylinder for the hand tap and a narrower model to facilitate the water flow … no rosette, no joystick. The object consists of merely one material, stainless steel. A pleasure for the eyes at first glance … then for the hands after the first touch.” (Bruno Erpicum, designer)

The architecture which it could develop can benefit from the constraints of the environment which it regards as major in the composition:
«To project what will be built, it is before any being with listening of the whole of the components of the place called to receive construction. With the manner of a sculpture, construction occupies space; it will have, moreover, the to be lived privilege the interior one It consequently rests with to us to orchestrate forces, matters, volumes and lights so that, in more than one right response to the needs which guided the composition, is born an emotion from the practice of space ».
That it is in urban site, as in London where it in particular built the Dali Museum or in the countryside of the Balearic Islands, it knew to particularize, with complete freedom, its interventions to give place to a contemporary architecture of a great sensitivity.
