The founding team of three members – Štěpán Toman, Claudia Schmidt and Daniel Kolský was formed at the beginning of 2011 and each member brought their experience into the partnership.

Tree different personalities and we do not perceive their approaches as limitation. Cooperation without tightly defined hierarchy expands our horizons and motivates us to get the best of each assignment. In each, even the smallest, task we try to find a challenge, which is often hidden at first sight and a better approach. That is why our architecture is bold and distinctive. The same applies for our projects where you can find solutions of large urban challenges to detailed design of furniture and utility objects. We are able to work in all measuring scales and for quite different clients.

ting tiŋ ] = is designation of an assembly – places of meeting, of ideas exchange, places where principal decisions are made.

The beginning of cooperation is the understanding of who you are and what your ideas are. We care a lot about understanding your positions and needs, which are essential for creating a good design. At the beginning, any cooperation means especially understanding of your world. Each project starts by analysis of situation and its problems, which the exact assignment results from. It is different to work with a client who wants to invest as a developer or with a client who thinks of a dream house for their family. We are able to work in many of these positions. Generally, the better we succeed in identifying with the clients and all their dreams, the better architectonic solution can be created.

Communication between the client and the architect

As we work with your budget and we try to implement your visions of a place where you want to live, work or perhaps relax, where you want to invest, we emphasize mutual communication throughout preparations and when creating the design. We perceive the relation between architects and client as very open and maximum honest. This allows you to get as much from the cooperation as possible.
