Our Integrated Approach means: together, with and for the community, integratingsocial, economic and physical competences. With our multidisciplinary team, we work with respect and trust for each other's expertise, with constant curiosity, or what we refer to as “looking over the fence”. A team of professionals speaking the same language, aiming to improve not only the physical environment but also the social and economic resilience of the people in it.

One of the strengths of Dutch designers' methodology from a physical perspective lies in the integration of space within and between the buildings, at the intermediate urban scale.

The integration of the social and economic within the configuration and organization of the program within urban design is decisive and leads to a long lasting positive impact- sustainability at the physical, economic and social level.

Another strength of Dutch Design is the extensive use of sustainable technologies. From the urban scale to the local neighborhood, innovation in the built environment is evident. Many innovations stem from necessity, for example the Delta Works Projects, from which we have developed our ability to live harmoniously with the sea. As we embrace forward thinking applications for technology, perhaps some of the more noteworthy advances have been in 'low-tech' solutions, redefining new conceptual organizations of the building program. More and more these provisions are becoming a common part of the Dutch design practice.
