Studio for New Realities is a studio for strategic urban development, architecture and consultancy.
As a design squad we take on projects both large and small: urban design, architecture, creating communities, living and working environments and public space. The team consists of specialists with diverse backgrounds, from urban planning, architecture and design research to strategic design for sustainability, programme and community.
This interdisciplinary approach allows us to approach each project from different perspectives, enabling us to create integrated schemes with true impact. While everyone is involved in our projects on the basis of their own expertise, we all contribute to the development of the studio in a wider sense as well.
