OUI (Office for Urban Innovation) are an architecture and urban planning office, applying Circular Economy (CE) principles to our projects. By integrating CE principles with design, OUI conceptualize buildings and spaces as living entities, contributing to the environment they are situated in, and making our world a better place. OUI believe each project is unique and requires a tailored process and approach.
Architecture & Urban Design
From the design of a house to greater urban planning, OUI design projects to make our cities better places to live in, by integrating our society’s evolving lifestyles into the projects and by collaborating with diversified fields of practice.
OUI look at interiors as functional spaces that should also be designed to our current way of living, while remaining flexible to how we will live tomorrow. OUI work closely with the users, understanding their lifestyles, evaluating the potential of their future home. OUI make durable interiors, using healthy materials and reusing existing elements when possible.
After years of collaboration with the consulting firm Lateral Thinking Factory, OUI are working on projects in order to reduce their environmental impact, and have decided that every design should integrate a CE based approach. This new approach aims at bringing solutions together in order to implant the projects in the present but also into the future, looking at constructions as flexible living entities.
