As cities are constantly growing, it puts pressure on city planners and architects to develop more sustainable areas and buildings. BAU strives to provide inspiring and longstanding solutions for urban spaces, focused on the location and its people. Architect and partner Hans Birkholz explains the idea behind BAU’s urbanism concept: “When making new additions to cities, we need to think beyond the building itself and look at the city as a whole. What we build has to fit in with the environment; it should be a bonus for what already exists there and increase the attraction for surrounding businesses.”
