“Flexibility is of paramount importance to architecture as it allows a building to have long-term use and be enjoyed through generations,” Krokfors says. However, she stresses that flexibility does not mean dull or neutral design. “Flexibility and a strong identity are not mutually exclusive; they can support each other,” she points out. The overarching theme in the firm’s designs is sustainability. “On a global scale, we’re living beyond our means. And with depleting natural resources, we need to be mindful of how much we waste – which is something that we incorporate into our designs by ensuring that our buildings will stand the test of time,” Krokfors says.
