because architecture matters organizes custom made architecture competitions for private clients in search of architectural quality and environmental performance
More than a simple Project Owner Assistance experience, we accompany you in an innovative way throughout the process of your project, combining our skills in architecture, engineering and construction economics.
From the preliminary analysis to the realisation of your project, through the elaboration of the programme, the possibility of organising an architectural competition and the follow-up of the project management studies, our aim is to propose you the best possible project in line with your expectations. But the strength of Because Architecture Matters is also in the provision of digital tools, in order to simplify exchanges, applications, selections and analyses, and allow you to concentrate on what is important:
innovation and project quality.
What we offer :
a three parts service
Architectural programming is the essential step by which a project can materialise: by mastering the future problems of the project beforehand, we guarantee its coherence and sustainability over time. The multidisciplinary nature of our team of architects and engineers allows us to have a good visibility on the entire project development process.
Thanks to our experience, we have developed an expertise that allows us to attract some of the most prestigious architecture firms in the world, while making the competition a time of conviviality, meeting and reflection, generating a positive dynamic within the company, and involving potential partners, clients or collaborators.
The competition is a rare opportunity for a company or an organization to communicate on subjects related to its activity. Our team of experts in communication, social media and press relations supports our clients in this communication throughout the process, on general and specialised media, locals and/or internationals.
We support our clients in a real ecological approach. By integrating, since the really begining of programmation step, high environmental ambitions, we offer to our clients the access to the most renowned design teams for their international references.
Far from the well known "greenwashing", our goal is to plan real innovating and sustainable buildings, for several decades.
